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 resident to utilize the sun to power daily life: running your a/c, cleaning clothing, seeing TV, cooking supper. All while reducing your carbon footprint, and without burning nonrenewable fuel sources or putting a pressure on the electrical grid.

#3 Safeguard against rising energy expenses

One of the most clear cut advantages of photovoltaic panels is the ability to hedge energy prices. In the past 10 years, property electricity prices have increased by approximately 3 percent each year. By purchasing a solar energy system now, you can repair your electrical energy rate and protect against unforeseeable increases in electrical power costs. If you're a business or homeowner with fluctuating cash circulation, going solar likewise helps you better projection and manage your expenditures.

#4 Increase your home value

Multiple research studies have actually found that homes equipped with solar energy systems have greater property worths and offer faster than non-solar houses. Appraisers are progressively taking solar setups into consideration as they value houses at the time of a sale, and as property buyers end up being more informed about solar, demand for homes geared up with photovoltaic panel systems will continue to grow.

#5 Boost U.S. energy independence

The sun is a near-infinite source of energy and a key element of achieving energy independence in the United States. By increasing our capacity to produce electricity from the sun, we can likewise insulate our country from price fluctuations in international energy markets.

#6 Develop jobs and assist your regional economy

Inning accordance with The Solar Foundation, the solar market included jobs at a rate nearly 12 times faster than the general U.S. economy in 2015, representing 1.2 percent of all tasks in the nation.

Numerous house owners choose to fund their solar panels with among the "pay-as-you-go" financing choices. This suggests that a third-party business-- the solar provider-- owns the solar system and looks after installation, upkeep, monitoring and repair works. You merely pay the solar company for electrical power-- less than you would've paid the utility company.

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 changing and undependable electrical energy rates. There is plainly an upward trend.

With solar panels and basic mathematics, we can compute what does it cost? electrical energy will be created, and most notably, at exactly what cost, for at least the next 20 years (repaired energy expenses).

Frequently Asked Questions

How Many 20 Amps Solar Panel Are Needed For The Average Home?

Solar panels are typically rated in watts, as that's what really matters in the end. That said, 20 amps is an unusually high output for a single panel. The type for house-sized applications are generally 5-8 amps, maybe 10 at the top end.

But to your question, it's hard to pin down what an average home is. The number of panels needed depends on the home's electrical usage, but also on how much sun the area gets. In Seattle, it will take twice as many panels as Phoenix for the same output.

Our house is in Northern California, and we have 18 panels, in a 2.5 kW array, providing essentially 100% of our electricity. Whether we are typical, I have no idea.

Water Pumped With Help From A Solar Panel?
I Would Like To Activate A Well (About 150 Feet Deep) By Using A Solar Panel (Or Two) To Pump The Water Up/Out Of The Well To Use For Gardening. Would This Work? Who Sells Something Like This,Or Could Install This In The Greater Toronto Area?

It is very possible and done all the time. However, it's not cheap. A solar powered submersible pump that can handle that depth is around $700. http://www.altestore.com/store/Solar-Wat... Then you'd need a solar panel about 65W, $350, http://www.altestore.com/store/Solar-Pan...

Is It Possible To Build Your Own Solar Panels?How?

Yes it is, for water heating.

Solar electric is also possible, but you would have to start with manufactured cells. It could be a fun project, but don't expect to save money this way. Home built panels are illegal to connect to the grid, and generally would not stand up to repeated sun and rain. A panel that lasts only 5 years in the elements should theoretically be worth only 1/5 the price of one that is guaranteed for 25 years.

Keeping this in mind, you could look at instructables.com for ideas. No need to pay anyone for plans.

Solar Panels - What Is The Amount Of Energy We Collect Vs. The Amount Of Energy The Sun Produces?
I Know All Types Of Energy Production Lose Energy. Most Commonly Is Its Lost Through Heat Or Friction But What About Solar Panels? Whats The Average Amount Of Energy We Collect Vs &Quot;Actual&Quot; Amount Of Energy The Sun Produces (E.G. In 1 Square Meter)?

Solar panels average about 17% efficient. For comparison, a coal fired power plant is about 25% efficient and an internal combustion engine is somewhere around 12% efficient. The solar panel's efficiency isn't bad when you consider that fossil fuel sources of energy are much more expensive than sunlight and produce CO2 and other pollutants.

Negative Information On Solar Power?
I Understand That Solar Power Is Wonderful And Great But I'M In Debate And We'Re Arguing Alternate Energy. I Need Negative Information On Solar Panels. Help!

I asked a local solar company to give me a quotation on some roof top solar panels. To make a long story short, their bid was $11,000 to install a setup which would make less than 6 kWh (kilowatt hours) of electricity on an average day. At the highest electric rate I know, that's worth less than $1.80 per day. If you just treat the panels as an investment, it's a very poor one.

I personally believe that "going green" should have some benefits which are also green - as in the color of money. That is, we should choose ways to "go green" which save energy and (thus) money. I concluded that there were more efficient uses of $11,000 - like buying double pane windows, replacing an inefficient refrigerator, adding insulation to a crawl space, etc.
