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.

#2 Earn a great return on your investment

Photovoltaic panels aren't an expense-- they're one of the very best methods to invest, with returns matching those of more traditional investments like stocks and bonds. Thanks to considerable electrical energy costs savings, the average American house owner settles their photovoltaic panel system in seven to eight years and sees an ROI of 20 percent or more.

#3 Safeguard versus rising energy expenses

One of the most clear cut advantages of photovoltaic panels is the ability to hedge energy costs. In the past 10 years, property electrical energy costs have actually increased by approximately three percent every year. By buying a solar energy system now, you can fix your electrical energy rate and secure against unforeseeable boosts in electricity expenses. If you're a service or house owner with rising and falling capital, going solar also helps you much better forecast and handle your expenditures.

#4 Boost your home or business worth

Appraisers are increasingly taking solar installations into factor to consider as they value houses at the time of a sale, and as property buyers end up being more educated about solar, need for homes equipped with solar 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 component of accomplishing energy independence in the United States. By increasing our capability to create electricity from the sun, we can likewise insulate our country from cost variations in worldwide energy markets.

#6 Develop jobs and help your local economy

According to The Solar Foundation, the solar industry 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 nation. This development is expected to continue. Due to the fact that solar-related tasks tend to be greater paying and can not be outsourced, they are a considerable factor to the United States economy.

#7 Safeguard the environment

Solar is a great way to reduce your carbon footprint. Buildings are accountable for 38 percent of all carbon emissions in the U.S., and going solar can considerably decrease that number. A common domestic solar panel system will eliminate 3 to four heaps of carbon emissions each year-- the equivalent of planting over 100 trees yearly.

#9 Start Saving from Day 1

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

Many house owners opt to finance their photovoltaic panels with among the "pay-as-you-go" funding alternatives. This suggests that a third-party business-- the solar company-- owns the planetary system and takes care of installation, upkeep, monitoring and repairs. You just pay the solar company for electrical power-- less than you would've paid the energy company.

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

#10. Solar is a Secure Financial investment

The utility business are notorious for their fluctuating and unreliable electricity rates. There is plainly an upward trend.

With photovoltaic panels and easy mathematics, we can calculate what does it cost? electrical power will be created, and most importantly, at exactly what price, for at least the next 20 years (fixed energy costs).

Frequently Asked Questions

How Can We Take This Global Warming Advocate Seriously?
Al Gore Has Added A 100 Foot Houseboat To His Personal Collection Of Stuff. He Gave It A Green Name, But Do We Really Believe That It's Carbon Neutral? Shouldn't He Be Setting An Example Of Austerity If He Wants Everyone Else To Cut Back On Their Energy Consumption? Http://Www.Tennessean.Com/Apps/Pbcs.Dll/Article?Aid=/20080915/News01/809150337/1006/News01

The truth is no one takes him serious, including himself.

It's funny, but even when he added the solar panels the amount of energy he uses each month went up instead of down.

Now he uses about 30 times the average. What a hog.

I'm just glad he's not too concerned about global warming. It's good when the guy who makes the most from the hoax doesn't believe in it either.

We can all be relieved that it is now a certified scam.

Are There Solar Panels On The Market Over 22 Percent Efficentcy?
Are There Any Solar Panels I Can Buy Online With Efficiency Over 22 Percent?

No, that is the maximum reached in commercial panels (and that is even very high, most are 16 - 18 %), silicone based solar panels have a maximum of 30 % (that has to do with the crystalline structure) and they are slowly getting there.

There are panels used by NASA with other materials on satellites and space probes but they are extremely expensive.

They work on other concepts: organic materials, sandwich panels but it seems they are years into the future.

Solar Panels?
I Want To Run 350 Watts 20 Hours A Day And Use Easy To Use Solar Panels That Come With A Box That You Can Just Directly Plug Any 3 Prong Cable Into. How Much Might That Cost And What Do I Need? Really Id Like To Do 500Watts 20 Hours A Day But For Right Now Maybe 350 Or Even 300 Would Be More Cost Effective.

The plug in solar is a gray area and only one leg of the 240 VAC output of the grid tied inverter is plugged into the wall outlet. You basically only get half the power you paid for.

The energy in 350 watts for 20 hours a day is 7,000 watt hours. You have about six hours a day insolation in the southern US states so it would take 1,166 watts to generate that energy per day. A household wall outlet can handle 1,800 watts at best but as the very questionable plug in products only use one leg of their inverters, you'll probably haave to buy twice that capacity.

Would Solar Panels On The Roof Be Damaged?
During Hail? What About Snow?

Solar panels are pretty durable pieces. Most panels I've worked with come with a 25 year manufacturers warranty so you shouldn't be worried as much about damage than keeping them clean. After it snows you should any frost coating off the panels as it may interfere with the efficiency of the panels. Only extreme weather conditions would damage the panels. Since they're purpose is to be outdoors, they're built to last.

Can I Couple My Electric Air Conditioner With Solar Panel Without Using A Inverter?

Energy from a solar panel is direct current (DC), typically 12 to 48 volts. Conversely, most air conditioning equipment uses alternating current (AC). I suppose you could find air conditioning equipment that runs on DC. Hunt around! They are made specifically for trucks and other vehicles. You'll need to analyze whether you want to buy all new air-conditioning equipment, or just go ahead and get an inverter.
