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 house owners to utilize the sun to power daily life: running your a/c unit, cleaning clothes, watching TV, cooking supper. All while lowering your carbon footprint, and without burning nonrenewable fuel sources or putting a pressure on the electrical grid. And while the ecological benefits of solar power are significant, numerous property owners discover that the benefit, unique features, and cost savings of owning a solar power system are much more enticing.

Top 10 Benefits of Solar Energy

#1 Significantly decrease or even eliminate your electrical expenses

Whether you're a property owner, business, or not-for-profit, electricity costs can comprise a large portion of your regular monthly expenditures. With a photovoltaic panel system, you'll generate free power for your system's whole 25+ year lifecycle. Even if you do not produce 100 percent of the energy you consume, solar will lower your energy expenses and you'll still conserve a lot of loan.

#2 Make a fantastic return on your financial investment

Photovoltaic panels aren't an expenditure-- they are among the best ways to invest, with returns rivaling those of more traditional investments like stocks and bonds. Thanks to substantial electrical power costs cost savings, the typical American property owner settles their photovoltaic panel system in seven to 8 years and sees an ROI of 20 percent or more.

#3 Safeguard against increasing energy costs

One of the most clear cut advantages of photovoltaic panels is the ability to hedge utility rates. In the past 10 years, domestic electricity prices have gone up by an average of three percent each year. By purchasing a solar energy system now, you can repair your electrical energy rate and protect against unpredictable boosts in electrical power expenses. If you're a company or homeowner with fluctuating capital, going solar also assists you better forecast and handle your expenses.

#4 Increase your home worth

Numerous studies have actually discovered that homes geared up with solar energy systems have greater residential or commercial property values and sell faster than non-solar houses. 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 educated about solar, need for properties equipped with photovoltaic panel systems will continue to grow.

#5 Boost U.S. energy self-reliance

The sun is a near-infinite source of energy and a crucial element of accomplishing energy independence in the United States. By increasing our capability to generate electricity from the sun, we can also insulate our nation from cost fluctuations in international energy markets.

#6 Develop jobs and assist your regional economy

According to The Solar Structure, the solar industry included jobs at a rate nearly 12 times faster than the overall U.S. economy in 2015, representing 1.2 percent of all tasks in the nation. This development is anticipated to continue. Due to the fact that solar-related tasks have the tendency to be higher paying and can not be contracted out, they are a significant contributor to the U.S. economy.

#7 Protect the environment

Solar is a fantastic way to decrease your carbon footprint. Buildings are responsible for 38 percent of all carbon emissions in the United States, and going solar can substantially decrease that number. A common domestic solar panel system will eliminate 3 to 4 lots of carbon emissions each year-- the equivalent of planting over 100 trees yearly.

#8 Demonstrate your commitment to sustainability

Sustainability and corporate social responsibility are very important parts of a company's culture and values. They also produce bottom line results. Increasingly, consumers and neighborhoods are recognizing and rewarding businesses that pick to operate properly. Companies are discovering that "green" qualifications are an effective chauffeur of consumer purchasing decisions, developing goodwill and improving company results.

#9 Start Conserving 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 money down.

Numerous property owners decide to fund their photovoltaic panels with among the "pay-as-you-go" financing choices. This suggests that a third-party company-- the solar provider-- owns the solar system and looks after installation, upkeep, monitoring and repairs. You merely pay the solar service provider for electricity-- less than you would've paid the utility business.

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

#10. Solar is a Secure Financial investment

The energy companies are well-known for their varying and undependable electrical energy costs. There is clearly an upward trend.

With photovoltaic panels and simple mathematics, we can determine just how much electrical power will be created, and most importantly, at what rate, for at least the next 20 years (repaired energy costs).

Frequently Asked Questions

Is There A Way To Charge Solar Panels Without Sunlight - I Know This Is A Strange Question But Please Humor Me?
I'M Talking About Very Small Solar Panels On A Couple Of Lighthouses Intended For The Garden, But I'M Keeping Them Inside. They Need To &Quot;Charge&Quot; So The Light Will Spin At Night. I Keep Them By The Window, But They'Re Still Not Getting Enough Sunlight. Keeping Them Outside Is Not An Option.

well you could set up a UV lamp or something.. but why not hook up a battery to keep it powered at night?

Trying To Charge A 12V Battery With A Solar Panel?
Im Trying To Charge A 12V Battery With A Solar Panel But I Only Have A 2 Inch By 2 Inch Space To Place A Solar Panel. Does Anyone Have Any Ideas

I don't think you can build or find a solar panel that would fit in such a small space, even if you were dealing with very low current. The only workaround I can think of would be to build a foldable solar panel that would deliver enough current to charge the battery. And attach one end of it to the box lid. But you'd have to be careful to make sure that folding and unfolding won't break the cells. Or the weight of it folded up won't break it.

FYI, I have a very small and compact 6V solar panel that delivers 340ma. And it takes up more than 2x2 inches.

Backup Batteries And Solar Power?
Hello All, Thanks For Stopping By, I Have Some Questions Regarding A Backup Battery, Specifically The Duracell Dpp-600Hd Powerpack 600 Jump Starter & Emergency Power Source With Radio: Http://Www.Amazon.Com/Duracell-Dpp-600Hd-Powerpack-Starter-Emergency/Dp/B000tkhmwk/Ref=Cm_Cmu_Pg_T I Was Thinking About Buying This, As Well As A Portable Solar Panel. Now For The Questions; Has Anyone Used This Battery, And If So What Are Your Results? Can Anyone Suggest A Good Quality Solar Panel To Use With This Battery? How Difficult Is Setting Up Other Power Sources To Use With These Types Of Battery? Specifically, If I Have A Dc Motor That I Have Rigged Up With A Bicycle As A Generator, Could This Store The Energy I Produce? Feel Free To Answer, Or Ask Questions About My Question If You Feel I Have Not Been Clear In My Inquiry. Thank You All!

Just get one of those 10 or 15 watt panels you should be able to get where you buy that pack.
It should charge it in around four good solar days.

So long as you can regualte the voltage to around 14V, and use a blocking diode to keep battery back feeding into the charger, you should be fine.

I don't have one of those packs, instead I have a straight 35Ah AGM cell with a 15 watt PV panel, charge controller, and 400W inverter. The system so far has mostly kept up with my nighly use (1/2 hr/night, around 100W CF lighting).

Why Are You Against Green Or Environmentalist Thinking?
I Am Just Trying To Understand Why Some People Are So Vehemently Opposed To Doing And Using &Quot;Green&Quot; Things That Help The Environment. I Just Don'T Understand Why... It Saves Money, It Saves The Environment And It Helps To Reduce Pollution. Regardless Of Weather Or Not You &Quot;Believe&Quot; In Global Warming (As If It Is A Religion) Do People Still Not See All Of The Positive Benefits Of Using Green Products And Building Green Leed Certified Homes And Buildings? I'M Really Confused And Would Like Real Answers From Real People Who Are Against Environmentalism. Thanks

It's not that I'm against the concept of being more 'green', it's just that I evaluate what is being proposed and make up my own mind.

For example, do you know that:

1. It takes almost as much energy to run a large scale ethanol plant as it produces?

2. There is going to be a huge shortage of corn and other grains because of the demand for ethanol?

3. "Mr. Green", Algore, claims to be carbon neutral, but has many homes that need to be lit, heated and cooled; drives around in gas guzzlers, flies in private air planes?

Solar Panel/Light For 10X10 Shed?
I'M Looking For A Led Light With A Solar Panel For My Shed So I Can See. Anyone Know Of One Or How To Make One?

might i make a suggestion?

how 'bout a skylight.
way cheaper.
works better (no components to break).
works for more of the day.

in fact, i have a 10" one that's bright enough that i often look for the light switch to turn it off.

Edit: If you get a light tunnel, get one with straight sides, not one that bends. You get more light through with fewer reflections. The "bendy" ones tend to reflect light back up, rather than down. The straight ones are just brighter.
