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 daily life: running your air conditioning system, washing clothing, enjoying TV, cooking dinner. All while decreasing your carbon footprint, and without burning nonrenewable fuel sources or putting a pressure on the electrical grid. And while the environmental benefits of solar power are substantial, numerous home owners find that the benefit, special features, and cost savings of owning a solar power system are much more enticing.

Top 10 Benefits of Solar Energy

#1 Considerably minimize or perhaps remove your electrical costs

Whether you're a homeowner, organization, or nonprofit, electrical power costs can comprise a big part of your monthly expenditures. With a solar panel system, you'll produce 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 decrease your utility bills and you'll still conserve a lot of money.

#2 Make a fantastic return on your investment

Solar panels aren't an expense-- they are among the finest ways to invest, with returns measuring up to those of more standard investments like stocks and bonds. Thanks to substantial electrical energy expense cost savings, the typical American house owner pays off their solar panel system in seven to 8 years and sees an ROI of 20 percent or more.

#3 Secure against rising energy costs

Among the most clear cut advantages of photovoltaic panels is the ability to hedge energy prices. In the past 10 years, residential electricity costs have gone up by an average of three percent annually. By purchasing a solar energy system now, you can fix your electrical power rate and secure versus unpredictable boosts in electrical power expenses. If you're a business or homeowner with changing money flow, going solar also assists you better forecast and handle your expenditures.

Appraisers are significantly taking solar installations into consideration as they value homes at the time of a sale, and as property buyers end up being more informed about solar, demand for homes 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 an essential element of accomplishing energy independence in the United States. By increasing our capacity to generate electrical energy from the sun, we can likewise insulate our country from cost variations in worldwide energy markets.

#6 Develop jobs and assist your regional economy

Inning accordance with The Solar Foundation, the solar industry included tasks at a rate nearly 12 times faster than the overall U.S. economy in 2015, representing 1.2 percent of all jobs in the nation. This growth is anticipated to continue. Due to the fact that solar-related jobs tend to be higher paying and can not be outsourced, they are a substantial contributor to the United States economy.

#7 Secure the environment

Solar is a great method to minimize your carbon footprint. Buildings are responsible for 38 percent of all carbon emissions in the U.S., and going solar can significantly decrease that number. A normal property solar panel system will get rid of three to four lots of carbon emissions each year-- the equivalent of planting over 100 trees each year.

#9 Start Conserving from Day 1

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

Numerous homeowners opt to fund their solar panels with among the "pay-as-you-go" financing options. This implies that a third-party company-- the solar service provider-- owns the solar system and takes care of setup, maintenance, tracking and repair works. You merely pay the solar provider 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 Investment

The energy companies are infamous for their changing and undependable electrical power rates. There is plainly an upward pattern.

With photovoltaic panels and basic math, we can calculate how much electrical energy will be generated, and most significantly, at what rate, for at least the next 20 years (repaired energy costs).

Frequently Asked Questions

Briefly, How Solar Power Works?
Could Someone Please Explain In Few Lines How Solar Power Works? From The Sun, Solar Panel, Inverter To Home Appliances.. Thanks

Sun energy (proton) is converted to electricity by the solar panel wich produces direct current (dc), the inverter changes direct current to alternating current (ac) wich powers most home appliances

Liberals And Alternative Energy?
Liberals, Environmentalists, And Other Groups Are Fixated On Alternative Energy Sources. Many Are Akin To The Strategy Of &Quot;Forcing&Quot; The Market To Produce New Alternative Energy Technology By Making Conventional Sources (Ie. Fossil Fuel And Nuclear Power) Either Too Regulated Or Too Expensive To The Point Where They Are Impractical. Questions: Why Aren'T All These Liberals Producing Any Technological Breakthroughs Yet, You Know, Since There Is Such A &Quot;Crisis&Quot; Now??????????? - I Mean, A Hydrogen Fuel-Cell Vehicle Still Costs Over $2 Million. More Importantly, Since Al Gore, Dr. Heidi Cullen, And All These Other People In The Spotlight Are So Enlightened On This Subject And Obviously Have The Resources And Connections, Why Are They Just Buying Carbon Credits, Instead Of Actively Working To Produce Results????????? As Conventional Forms Of Energy Are Becomming Too Regulated And Too Expensive, What Alternatives Are Available For Less Fortunate Members Of Society???

Liberals are focused on lying to Americans like usual. They are pushing for sales of ethanol based fuels which actually get significantly less MPG than regular gasoline. As consumers why would we be willing to shell out money for less conducive forms of automobile fuel!

How To Run An Air Conditioner Using Solar Power?
I Would Like To Know If Anyone Has Ever Tried To Run An Air Conditioner Using Solar Panels. I Know That Pretty Much Anything Can Be Hooked Up To A Battery To Run It. How Many Solar Panel Did You Need? 50 Watts, 100Watts, Etc. And Did You Hardwire It Directly Or Did You Get Some Type Of Adapter For The Ac Plug To The Solar Panels. Thanks.

depends on type of ac unit you are talking about and how many amps it pulls...multiply volts times amps this gives you watts.....so 30 amps times 230 volts would be 6900 watts or 6.9 kilowatts....you would need a power converter to change the voltage from dc to ac to run air conditioner or anything else...

How Is Solar Energy Used?
I'M Thinking Of Maybe Switching To Solar Energy, But I Need Some Questions Answered. How Is Solar Energy Used And What Percent Of Our Energy Comes From This Source? What Are Some Advantages/Disadvantages Of Solar Energy, And How Does It Help/Harm The Environment?

Hi Sarah - That is great that you are considering solar power. The previous answers do a good job of covering the main uses of solar power - heat or electricity. Using a renewable energy technology like solar thermal or solar electric (photovoltaic) means that we use less polluting fossil fuels to produce the energy that we consume. Despite the widespread availability of solar power for residential, commercial and utility scale projects, less than 1% of all of our electricity in the US is generated from solar power!

If you plan to seriously investigate solar power for your home or business, the first step is to look at ways to reduce your consumption. Solar energy is clean, but we should still be fully aware of what we consume. In many cases solar power is an investment for environmental reasons and not strictly economic reasons.

Good luck!
Kristen
