What Our Customers are Saying



"We found all of the employees with whom we in contact from the sales representative to the installers to be knowledgeable and professional. All our questions were answered satisfactorily which is why we decided panels installed. We were also impressed with the company’s A+ rating by the Better Business Bureau.” – Pat S. – Boston


"Our first two bills were approximately $300.00 less than before and our third bill, just received was down about $250.00 from what we were paying! We think it is fantastic!" - William R. - Waltham MA


"They did a wonderful job on my system and I would recommend them to my family and friends!" - Georg S. - Chicopee MA

I cannot express my gratitude for going forward with solar panels. From the initial meeting to discuss the possibility to the techs who eventually installed them. But most of all, it is the savings we have experienced. That first month was unbelievable. Solar plus our other electric source combined was less than our usual monthly expense. During the summer when our electric usage is higher because of the air conditioning, our monthly expense was still less than what we have paid with past summer usage. And if that’s not enough…our present electricity is primarily supplied by the solar panels. We have been building up a reserve with our other electricity source and will be able to draw from that all winter when our panels wont’t generate as much electricity. It’s a win-win situation that we’re just thrilled over. Having a fixed rate locked in is another great feature for savings.” – Virgil T. – Westport MA

About Solar Energy

Solar power is energy from the sun that is transformed into thermal or electrical energy.

Solar energy is the cleanest and most abundant renewable resource source available, and the United States has some of the richest solar resources worldwide. Modern innovation can harness this energy for a variety of usages, consisting of producing electricity, supplying light or a comfortable interior environment, and heating water for domestic, commercial, or industrial usage.

Solar Benefits

Solar power makes it possible for homeowner to use the sun to power daily life: running your ac system, cleaning clothing, viewing TV, cooking dinner. All while decreasing your carbon footprint, and without burning fossil fuels or putting a stress on the electrical grid. And while the ecological advantages of solar power are significant, many home owners find that the convenience, distinct functions, and cost savings of owning a solar power system are much more attractive.

Top 10 Advantages of Solar Energy

#1 Dramatically reduce or even remove your electric expenses

Whether you're a property owner, company, or nonprofit, electrical power expenses can make up a large part of your monthly costs. With a photovoltaic panel system, you'll generate free power for your system's entire 25+ year lifecycle. Even if you don't produce One Hundred Percent of the energy you take in, solar will lower your utility bills and you'll still save a great deal of cash.

#2 Make an excellent return on your financial investment

Solar panels aren't an expenditure-- they are among the very best ways to invest, with returns measuring up to those of more standard financial investments like stocks and bonds. Thanks to substantial electrical power costs savings, the typical American homeowner pays off their solar panel system in 7 to eight years and sees an ROI of 20 percent or more.

#3 Protect versus rising energy costs

One of the most clear cut benefits of solar panels is the ability to hedge energy costs. In the past 10 years, domestic electrical energy rates have increased by approximately 3 percent annually. By purchasing a solar energy system now, you can repair your electricity rate and safeguard against unforeseeable increases in electricity expenses. If you're a company or house owner with changing cash circulation, going solar also helps you much better forecast and handle your costs.

#4 Increase your property worth

Several studies have discovered that homes equipped with solar energy systems have higher home values and sell more rapidly than non-solar homes. Appraisers are significantly taking solar installations into consideration as they value houses at the time of a sale, and as property buyers become more informed about solar, need for homes equipped with photovoltaic panel systems will continue to grow.

#5 Increase U.S. energy self-reliance

The sun is a near-infinite source of energy and a crucial part of accomplishing energy independence in the United States. By increasing our capability to generate electrical power from the sun, we can also insulate our country from price fluctuations in international energy markets.

#6 Create jobs and assist your local economy

Inning accordance with The Solar Foundation, the solar market included tasks at a rate nearly 12 times faster than the overall U.S. economy in 2015, representing 1.2 percent of all jobs in the country. This development is expected to continue. Because solar-related jobs tend to be greater paying and can not be contracted out, they are a substantial contributor to the United States economy.

#7 Safeguard the environment

Solar is a fantastic method to minimize your carbon footprint. Structures are accountable for 38 percent of all carbon emissions in the U.S., and going solar can significantly reduce that number. A common residential photovoltaic panel system will eliminate 3 to 4 lots of carbon emissions each year-- the equivalent of planting over 100 trees yearly.

#8 Demonstrate your dedication to sustainability

Sustainability and business social responsibility are crucial parts of an organization's culture and values. They likewise produce bottom line results. Increasingly, customers and communities are recognizing and rewarding organisations that decide to operate properly. Companies are discovering that "green" credentials are a powerful motorist of customer getting choices, developing goodwill and enhancing business results.

#9 Start Saving from Day 1

Solar purchase power agreements (PPAs) and solar leasing has actually made it possible for house owners to go solar for little or no loan down.

Many house owners pick to fund their solar panels with among the "pay-as-you-go" funding choices. This suggests that a third-party business-- the solar service provider-- owns the solar system and looks after installation, upkeep, tracking and repairs. You merely pay the solar service provider for electrical power-- less than you would've paid the energy company.

As of June 2013, 75% of all American houses have access to pay-as-you-go solar.

#10. Solar is a Secure Investment

The utility business are infamous for their varying and unreliable electrical power costs. There is plainly an upward trend.

With photovoltaic panels and basic math, we can compute what does it cost? electrical energy will be created, and most importantly, at exactly what price, for a minimum of the next Twenty Years (fixed energy costs).

Frequently Asked Questions

How Would Solar Energy Effect Our Normal Lives?
If One House Switched To Solar Energy How Would It Effect The Neighborhood, Town, City, State, Country, Continent And World?

it would effect others by being an example for something better. Solar energy affects the entire world by being a cleaner source of energy and not giving off any pollution. I believe more people need to look into going solar because not only does it benefit you, it benefits the people around you. Utility prices are going to always increase. If you look back after 10-15 years and add up all the electricity you spent your money on, you'd kick yourself for not getting solar panels earlier. Not only that, but they increase your home value.

Solar Panel Questions?
How Much Would It Cost To Buy The Solar Panels To Run A Average House With 5 Rooms All Day And Night? How Much Would It Be For Only One Light Bulb? The Cost Of Solar Panel?

We have 30 watts of solar, that charges our phones, etc. We have some redundancy- 2 panels, 15 watts each, 3 batteries. 3 days of clouds or rain and we are out of juice.total cost less than 200 bucks.

Doing Research On Solar Energy... Help ?
Find Someone Who Supports Solar Energy, Someone Who Believes That Solar Increased Activity Occurs About The Time Of The Industrial Revolution. Please Site Your Sources. Thank You.

You are going in the right direction. Tectonic activity did begin in about the 1600's which cause more venting of CO2 to give the illusion that CO2 rise is directly related to the industrial revolution, and solar activity has been a major factor for climate considerations.

How To Use Solar Panels To Power The Autorickshaw Or Tuk-Tuk?
Guys This Is My Final Yr Project , I Am Planning To Use Solar Panels On The Roof Of The Tuk-Tuk, To Power It Up.Please Help Me As To How To Go About This And What Would Be The Approximate Cost..Please Give Any Refrences Or Websites That Might Help..Please Help Me Out On This One..Ill Be Very Grateful ,Thank You

A tuk tuk has an engine with a capacity of about 175-400 cc, about 15-30 horsepower or 11-23 kW. At a ballpark value of 70 mW per square inch of solar panel - obtained from
http://home.howstuffworks.com/home-impro...

you will need an area of 600-1200 square feet to provide that power directly, and that is only when the sun is shining. If you use a smaller area to recharge a battery the tuk tuk is going to be stationary for corresponding periods of time.

Solar Energy Stored In Photosynthesis?
Where Is Solar Energy Stored In Photosynthesis?

It's a question of wording. Photosynthesis is the process by which plants take carbon dioxide from the air and combine them with water and nutrients from the soil to make the necessary carbohydrates, proteins, vitamins, ect. for life. Energy from sunlight enables this process to proceed. Solar energy is stored as chemical energy in these chemicals, not in photosynthesis.
