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 home owners to utilize the sun to power everyday life: running your air conditioning system, washing clothing, seeing TELEVISION, cooking supper. All while minimizing 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 significant, lots of homeowners discover that the benefit, distinct functions, and cost savings of owning a solar power system are a lot more enticing.

Top Ten Advantages of Solar Energy

#1 Dramatically decrease or even remove your electrical costs

Whether you're a property owner, service, or not-for-profit, electricity costs can make up a big portion of your regular monthly expenses. With a solar 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 decrease your utility bills and you'll still conserve a lot of loan.

#2 Earn a terrific return on your investment

Solar panels aren't an expense-- they are among the very best ways to invest, with returns measuring up to those of more conventional financial investments like stocks and bonds. Thanks to considerable electrical energy expense cost savings, the average American house owner pays off their photovoltaic panel system in 7 to eight years and sees an ROI of 20 percent or more.

#3 Safeguard against increasing energy expenses

One of the most clear cut advantages of photovoltaic panels is the ability to hedge utility costs. In the past 10 years, property electrical power costs have actually gone up by approximately 3 percent yearly. By purchasing a solar energy system now, you can repair your electrical energy rate and safeguard against unpredictable increases in electrical power expenses. If you're a business or property owner with ever-changing money flow, going solar also assists you much better projection and manage your costs.

#4 Increase your home value

Multiple research studies have found that houses geared up with solar energy systems have higher property values and sell quicker than non-solar houses. Appraisers are increasingly taking solar setups 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 properties equipped 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 component of attaining energy self-reliance in the United States. By increasing our capacity to generate electrical energy from the sun, we can also insulate our nation from rate changes in worldwide energy markets.

#6 Develop jobs and help your local economy

Inning accordance with The Solar Structure, the solar market added jobs at a rate nearly 12 times faster than the total U.S. economy in 2015, representing 1.2 percent of all jobs in the country. This growth is anticipated to continue. Due to the fact that solar-related jobs have the tendency 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 typical residential solar panel system will remove 3 to four loads of carbon emissions each year-- the equivalent of planting over 100 trees every year.

#8 Show your commitment to sustainability

Sustainability and corporate social duty are very important parts of an organization's culture and values. They also produce bottom line results. Progressively, consumers and neighborhoods are recognizing and rewarding services that select to operate properly. Services are discovering that "green" credentials are a powerful motorist of customer purchasing choices, developing goodwill and improving company outcomes.

#9 Start Conserving from Day 1

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

Numerous house owners pick to finance their photovoltaic panels with among the "pay-as-you-go" financing alternatives. This suggests that a third-party business-- the solar company-- owns the planetary system and looks after installation, maintenance, monitoring and repair works. You just pay the solar company for electrical energy-- less than you would've paid the utility company.

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

#10. Solar is a Secure Investment

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

With solar panels and basic math, we can calculate how much electrical energy will be created, and most notably, at what rate, for a minimum of the next 20 years (repaired energy expenses).

What Is Solar Energy?
I Am In 10Th Grade And I Am Doing A Project To Model Solar Energy, But I Am Clueless What It Is And As To What To Do. Can Someone Help Me Out In Simple Words Lol. Thank U!:)

Solar energy is energy from the sun it can be used to heats chemical rods inside solar conductors the heat from the rods can make energy which can be used to heat our homes and give electrical power to our homes. hope that helped a litttle.

What Does Subsidizing And Disentralizing Energy Mean?

Subsidizing and Decentralizing has nothing to do with energy labels on appliances.

Decentralizing is moving the point of power generation from large centralized generating stations to local forms of power generation, such as when you put solar cells on your roof or a wind turbine on your property.

Subsidizing is the process of giving money (subsidies) to the homeowners or businesses that install these solar panels and/or turbines because they are not cost efficient on their own. It is basically a process where the government steals money from hard working taxpayers so that they can give it to other people.

Why Is Solar Energy Generators Are So Costly (India)?
When The Whole World Is Speaking About Global Warming, Extinction Resources Like Charcoal For Electricity Why Is The Solar Energy Generating Equipments Are So Costly ? It Roughly Takes 15000 Inr For 1 Fan, 1 Tube Light, 5 9W Cfl Bulbs For 1 Hour Back Up.

Solar energy itself may be considered clean and easy to harness, but the materials needed to transduce sunlight into electricity are very expensive.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Solar_cell
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Refined_sil...
Silicon wafers, needed to produce solar cells, are difficult to manufacture. The silicon must be of high purity, which is achieved by a lengthy and expensive process.

There are other possible ways being researched, such as polymer solar cells that don't require silicon.
