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 everyday life: running your air conditioner, cleaning clothes, watching TV, cooking dinner. All while lowering your carbon footprint, and without burning fossil fuels or putting a strain on the electrical grid. And while the environmental benefits of solar power are substantial, lots of home owners discover that the convenience, unique features, and expense savings of owning a solar power system are even more enticing.

Top Ten Benefits of Solar Energy

#1 Drastically lower and even eliminate your electric costs

Whether you're a property owner, business, or not-for-profit, electrical energy expenses can make up a large part of your month-to-month expenditures. With a solar panel system, you'll produce totally free power for your system's entire 25+ year lifecycle. Even if you do not produce 100 percent of the energy you consume, solar will reduce your energy expenses and you'll still save a great deal of money.

#2 Make a terrific return on your financial investment

Solar panels aren't an expense-- they're one of the very best methods to invest, with returns measuring up to those of more traditional financial investments like stocks and bonds. Thanks to substantial electricity costs cost savings, the average American homeowner pays off their photovoltaic panel system in seven to eight years and sees an ROI of 20 percent or more.

#3 Safeguard against increasing energy costs

Among the most clear cut advantages of photovoltaic panels is the ability to hedge energy costs. In the past 10 years, property electrical power prices have actually gone up by an average of three percent every year. By purchasing a solar energy system now, you can fix your electrical energy rate and safeguard against unpredictable boosts in electrical energy expenses. If you're a service or house owner with changing cash circulation, going solar likewise helps you much better forecast and manage your expenses.

#4 Increase your home or business worth

Several studies have actually found that homes equipped with solar energy systems have greater residential or commercial property worths and offer more quickly than non-solar homes. Appraisers are progressively taking solar installations into factor to consider as they value homes at the time of a sale, and as homebuyers end up being more informed about solar, need for properties equipped with solar panel systems will continue to grow.

#5 Increase U.S. energy independence

The sun is a near-infinite source of energy and a key part of attaining energy independence in the United States. By increasing our capacity to create electrical energy from the sun, we can also insulate our country from price variations in international energy markets.

#6 Create jobs and help your local economy

According to The Solar Structure, the solar market included tasks at a rate almost 12 times faster than the general U.S. economy in 2015, representing 1.2 percent of all tasks in the country. This growth is expected to continue. Because solar-related jobs have the tendency to be greater paying and can not be outsourced, they are a significant contributor to the United States economy.

#7 Secure the environment

Solar is a terrific method to decrease your carbon footprint. Buildings are accountable for 38 percent of all carbon emissions in the U.S., and going solar can substantially reduce that number. A normal property photovoltaic panel system will eliminate three to four lots of carbon emissions each year-- the equivalent of planting over 100 trees every year.

#8 Demonstrate your commitment to sustainability

Sustainability and corporate social duty are necessary components of an organization's culture and worths. They also produce bottom line results. Increasingly, consumers and neighborhoods are recognizing and rewarding companies that opt to run properly. Services are finding that "green" qualifications are an effective chauffeur of customer buying choices, developing goodwill and enhancing service outcomes.

#9 Start Conserving from Day 1

Solar purchase power arrangements (PPAs) and solar leasing has made it possible for property owners to go solar for little or no money down.

Numerous house owners opt to finance their solar panels with one of the "pay-as-you-go" funding options. This means that a third-party company-- the solar company-- owns the planetary system and takes care of setup, upkeep, monitoring and repair works. You just pay the solar company for electrical power-- less than you would've paid the energy business.

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

#10. Solar is a Secure Financial investment

The energy companies are notorious for their fluctuating and undependable electrical power costs. There is clearly an upward pattern.

With photovoltaic panels and basic mathematics, we can calculate just how much electrical energy will be generated, and most notably, at exactly what rate, for a minimum of the next Twenty Years (fixed energy costs).

Financing

What are the various payment options?

We have many flexible purchasing agreements for customers who would like to install a new home solar system. There are three different payment options, making them a viable choice for customers of all budgets. The payment options include Lease, PPA, and Purchase.

Green jobs and green technology will be vital to our economic future. There is no reason that the U.S. should not be a leader in developing and deploying these new technologies.

The U.S. solar energy industry continued its double-digit annual growth rate in 2006. To develop these and other sources of renewable energy will require that we rationalize the current patchwork of temporary tax credits that provide commercial feasibility

The federal government is the largest electricity consumer on earth and occupies 3.3 billion square feet of space worldwide. It provides an enormous opportunity to lead by example. By applying a higher efficiency standard to new buildings leased or purchased or retrofitting existing buildings, we can save taxpayers substantial money in energy costs, and move the construction market in the direction of green technology.

Believes We Must Understand The Role Speculation Is Playing In Our Soaring Energy Prices. Congress already has investigations underway to examine this kind of wagering in our energy markets, unrelated to any kind of productive commerce, because it can distort the market, drive prices beyond rational limits, and put the investments and pensions of millions of Americans at risk. John McCain believes that where we find abuses, they need to be swiftly punished. To make sure it never happens again,

I'M Building A Solar Panel (70-100 Watts) And I Don'T Know What Size Battery Makes Sense To Use?
Please Recomend One Of These Batteries In Which To Store The Power Generated By My Solar Panel. Http://Search.Greenbatteries.Com/Search/Category-Rechargeable_Batteries--Subcategory-Rechargeable_Lead_Acid_Batteries_-_Sla%2C_Agm%2C_Deep_Cycle--_Autodone-Http%3A%2F%2Fstore.Yahoo.Com%2Fgreenbatteries-Store%2F--Catalog-Greenbatteries-Store--Keywords-Deep_Cycle_12V--X-0--Y-0 Ps The Panel Is 12V

Generally, the larger the battery, ie, the amp-hour rating is higher, the better you are, as you can store more energy. So it's a trade-off of capacity versus price and size. You have to decide that trade-off, you know the parameters, I don't.

You may want to get a battery rated for deep discharge. Most lead acid batteries (auto type) cannot be completely discharged without damaging it. These are sometimes referred to as "marine batteries".

100 amp-hour is about the biggest, and your 100 watt panel will take about 12 hours to charge it.

You will need a panel output of 15 volts in order to charge a 12 volt battery, 12 volts is not enough.

You will also need a charge controller of some sort to avoid overcharging the battery and damaging it. A good one will use a DC-DC converter to increase the voltage to that needed to charge the battery.

What Is The Difference Between &Quot;Thermic Solar Energy&Quot; And &Quot;Electric Solar Energy&Quot;?
What Is The Difference Between &Quot;Thermic Solar Energy&Quot; And &Quot;Electric Solar Energy&Quot;? Thankyou

Normally I see this when discussing the difference between Photovoltaic (light electricity) solar panels and thermal (heat) Solar Panels. Solar thermal is the more mature technology with photovoltaic as a relative newcomer.

There has been an explosion of research in photovoltaic solar in recent years. Most is using visible light and efficiency has been slowly creeping up to around 40% presently with projections around 60% although what you can buy is probably around 15%. But the light that we can see is only part of the energy spectrum. Work is being done to try and capture other parts of the sun's rays that are not visible. Even if they are less efficient they will be drawing from a bigger pool.

Solar thermal applications also convert the suns rays but in this case to heat. The efficiency is about 60% to 80% and includes both visible and non visible light. Thermal solar applications usually place more emphasis on concentrating solar energy with mirrors on to a target or within a medium like water or some salts.

Solar thermal panels can heat air within them or water that flows through them. In each case there is a target that conducts heat to the medium. The latest advance in solar thermal panels are vacuum tube collectors. Often these use phase change materials and a vacuum in a tube to collect more of the sun's heat in cold environments and on cloudy days.

A greenhouse or a sun room is a solar thermal application as are windows placed on the sunward side of a house. Most commonly solar thermal is used to heat water or for space heating where it matches well with radiant floor heating but needs some thermal mass for storage.

Solar thermal applications can be used to run air conditioning using an absorption system for refrigeration.

Solar thermal applications can also produce electricity. There are three main designs: A power tower where a target is centrally located and many heliostats (mirrors that track the sun) focus sunlight onto a target. The steam produced might then be used to power a steam turbine. A hyperbolic mirror is used to power a stirling engine. This has an advantage of a potentially smaller scale. And last the trough collectors that focus light in the trough to central piping that is used to power turbines.

What Are We Going To Use For Power In The Future? Not Solar, Not Ethenal, Not Coal, All Have Weakness, So What

Thermoclines. Look it up. The difference in temperature between ocean surface-level water versus the colder, deeper ocean water lead to the abilty to extract clean energy. You can indeed look it up!
