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

Many house owners opt to fund their solar panels with among the "pay-as-you-go" financing choices. This implies that a third-party business-- the solar supplier-- owns the solar system and looks after installation, upkeep, tracking and repairs.

Frequently Asked Questions

Who Knows The Following Solar Pv Panel?

Yes, this is BIPV solar panel which can be used as roof but can power electric power. In addition, the desity can be designed according requirement. The manufacturer is Himin solar co., Ltd

Can A Solar Panel Company Sell Carbon Credits?
I Am Looking To Rent Roof Space And Install My Own Solar Panels To Produce Power. Of Course The Power Will Be Sold To The Local Power Company, But I Am Wondering If I Can Sell Carbon Credits To Local Companies As Well. Does Anyone Have Any Info?

There are carbon brokers who specialize in trading carbon credits. Some states have higher rates than others. In the US, it is still not likely to be a profitable business model until they improve the Feed-In-Tariff policy. Some European countries are set up that it is a great way to make money. http://www.brokerscarbon.com/

Solar Panels Don'T Work When It'S Too Hot/Sunny?
Is This Fact True? - Its A Limitation To Solar Panels During Summer When It'S In Extremly Hot Countrie. I'Ve Heard It From My Science Teacher .. Please Give Detail If You Have Any And Any More Benefits/Limitations Is Welcomed .. Thank You :) !

Solar PV (photovoltaic) panels do indeed get less efficient when they heat up.

If you look at the I-V power curves on the spec sheet for these rooftop panels (PDF):

http://www.silikenusa.com/Resources/Docu...

you'll notice that they have different curves for different temperatures. But they do still produce power, certainly. I have an array on my roof, and it still manages to max out the inverter on a hot summer day. But I do notice that the top row, which is hotter due to heat rising from those below, consistently puts out a few less watts than the bottom row.

So more sun is certainly better; direct light is exactly what's needed. But hot panels due to poor air circulation or high ambient temperature does cut into efficiency.

(Solar thermal, of course, is a different story)

Why Are Solar Panels So Expensive? Isn'T That A Bad Thing?
Solar Panels Are So Expensive That People Are Not Buying Them, Because In The Long Run It Hurts Them Financially. Because Of The Expense, People Are Not Able To Go &Quot;Green&Quot;. Would'Nt It Be Smart To Make Them Less Expensive?

It would be smart, but they are very expensive to make, especially to make them big enough to produce enough electricity to light up a home or business

What Is Solar Energy Why Is It So Important Why Is It Good For Us?

Solar energy is obviously a continuous energy source as the sun is always shining. When compared to fossil fuel, which is non-renewable and pollutes, solar energy is the best alternative for energy sources. The problem at the moment is lack of efficiency as we have not been able to mimic photosynthesis to trap the energy in sunlight (photons) the way that plants have. However, research on photosynthetic solar panels is ongoing in New Zealand and should hopefully be available in coming years.
