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 house owners to utilize the sun to power daily life: running your air conditioning system, washing clothing, watching TELEVISION, cooking supper. All while lowering 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 considerable, lots of home owners find that the convenience, special features, and cost savings of owning a solar power system are even more attractive.

Top Ten Advantages of Solar Energy

#1 Considerably lower or perhaps eliminate your electrical costs

Whether you're a house owner, organization, or nonprofit, electrical energy costs can make up a large part of your month-to-month expenditures. With a solar panel system, you'll produce free power for your system's entire 25+ year lifecycle. Even if you don't produce 100 percent of the energy you take in, solar will minimize your energy bills and you'll still conserve a great deal of money.

#2 Earn a great return on your investment

Solar panels aren't a cost-- they are among the finest methods to invest, with returns measuring up to those of more conventional investments like stocks and bonds. Thanks to considerable electricity bill savings, the typical American house owner settles their photovoltaic panel system in seven to 8 years and sees an ROI of 20 percent or more.

#3 Secure versus rising energy costs

One of the most clear cut benefits of solar panels is the capability to hedge utility rates. In the previous 10 years, property electrical power prices have actually gone up by approximately three percent yearly. By buying a solar energy system now, you can repair your electrical power rate and protect against unpredictable increases in electrical power costs. If you're a company or house owner with fluctuating capital, going solar likewise helps you much better forecast and handle your expenditures.

#4 Boost your house value

Numerous studies have discovered that homes equipped with solar energy systems have higher property values and sell quicker than non-solar homes. Appraisers are increasingly taking solar installations into factor to consider as they value homes at the time of a sale, and as homebuyers end up being more informed about solar, need for homes geared up 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 key element of achieving energy independence in the United States. By increasing our capability to create electrical power from the sun, we can likewise insulate our nation from rate fluctuations in worldwide energy markets.

#6 Develop jobs and help your regional economy

According to The Solar Structure, 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 jobs in the country. This growth is expected to continue. Due to the fact that solar-related jobs tend to be higher paying and can not be outsourced, they are a substantial factor to the U.S. economy.

#7 Safeguard the environment

Solar is a terrific method to reduce your carbon footprint. Buildings are accountable for 38 percent of all carbon emissions in the U.S., and going solar can substantially decrease that number. A typical property photovoltaic panel system will get rid of 3 to 4 loads of carbon emissions each year-- the equivalent of planting over 100 trees each year.

#8 Demonstrate your dedication to sustainability

Sustainability and corporate social duty are very important components of an organization's culture and values. They also produce bottom line results. Increasingly, customers and neighborhoods are recognizing and rewarding companies that decide to operate properly. Organisations are discovering that "green" qualifications are a powerful motorist of consumer acquiring decisions, producing goodwill and improving company outcomes.

#9 Start Saving from Day 1

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

Many property owners decide to finance their solar panels with one of the "pay-as-you-go" financing options. This suggests that a third-party company-- the solar supplier-- owns the solar system and looks after setup, maintenance, tracking and repairs. You just pay the solar company for electricity-- 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 companies are notorious for their changing and unreliable electrical energy costs. There is plainly an upward trend.

With solar panels and simple mathematics, we can compute just how much electrical energy will be created, and most notably, at exactly what price, for at least the next Twenty Years (repaired energy costs).

Financing

What are the various payment options?

We have many flexible purchasing agreements for customers who would like to install a new home solar system. There are three different payment options, making them a viable choice for customers of all budgets. The payment options include Lease, PPA, and Purchase.

What happens when the contract for my lease is finished?

We provide our customers with a few different options for when their lease contract is up. Customers can upgrade their equipment to the newest solar technology available, extend the agreement, or have the panels removed at no cost.

What is the warranty?

The Lease and PPA include a 20-year warranty during the lifetime of the system. This warranty exceeds that of most other solar installers’ warranties.

Frequently Asked Questions

What Types Solar Cells Are Better For Use In Solar Panels?
Amorphous Cells, Polycrystalline Cells, Single-Cell Solar Cells

They are too expensive ,and the pay out will probably not be very good. Note of caution !! mount them very sturdy as they have a lot of surface so a little wind can tare them up.

Ways We Turn Solar Into Energy We Use?
How Do We Turn Solar Energy Into Energy

You can turn light energy directly into electrical energy by using photovoltaic cells (solar panels). These are what satellites in Earth orbit use, with those big flat panels.

You can also use sunlight to heat water to turn a turbine. This is how some solar power plants out in Arizona does it-- An array of mirrors focus sunlight onto one spot on a heating tower where water is boiled by the concentrated sunlight. The steam is used to turn a turbine to turn a generator to produce electricity.

Those are the two most common that I can think of.

What Is The Best Solar Panel Charger For Laptop?
Please Provide Links.

An excellent option is the Powertraveller Solargorilla solar charger designed to work with laptops. You can increase your charging options further when the Solargorilla is used with the Powertraveller Powergorilla portable charger. You can connect the solar panels directly to your laptop, but it is more efficient to use the Solargorilla to charge the Powergorilla and then connect the Powergorilla to your laptop.

Here are links to both the Solargorilla and Powergorilla portable chargers with detailed product information:

How Can I Run My House Purely Off Of Solar Panels?
Im Trying To Run My House With With Solar Panels, Is It Possible? If So Please Let Me Know How.... I Have A 16000 W Inverter

No, because you have night time usage and cloudy days where you could not produce any electricity. However you could obtain all power from solar panels and then store energy for these times, but you can't do so economically.

First you would have to determine what is the minimal amount of solar insolation that your house receives. This would probably be in December in the Northern Hemisphere. Then you need to consider how many cloudy days and how much night time usage you need to consider for energy storage. Then you need to consider how much of an extra energy buffer you need to build into the system.

Finally you will be faced with the reality that you could be paying 3 or 4 times more for a system to satisfy 100% of your needs than you would for a system that could for-fill 80% of your needs.

In the summer you would be producing far more electricity than you could use or practically store. Eventually we will have batteries that can store energy in a stable chemistry over a very long period of time. These heat batteries might be such an example: http://www.solarthermalmagazine.com/2010...

Why Isn'T Tesla'S Unlimited Energy Solution Being Used Today?
I Found Out Today That Nikola Tesla Invented A Free Unlimited Source Of Energy Using Our Atmosphere. Why Isn'T It Being Used.. It Would Change This World In Every Way.

Hey Chris, Homer is correct in that the device you speak of does not extract free energy from thin air. It has been called the Tesla Coil, Tesla Generator, and lately the Tesla Unlimited Energy Device. The device is a receiver. What Tesla was trying to get at was that energy can be pumped into both the earth and the atmosphere, transmitted over long distances and picked back up at the receiver to be used for whatever purposes were desired. This free energy has to be produced and put into the atmosphere first, purportedly by a power company. It isn't free, but the problem is it can be pirated at any location with the use of another Tesla Coil, which means less of it is now available for the receiving coil that may have been originally built to receive the energy in the first place. It's like a bank using a high power cannon to blast dollar bills into the air that are carried on the wind until someone on a tall hill reaches up and grabs them as they drift by. It isn't free money, it's the banks, and they're going to want someone to pay for it. The dollar bills do not occur naturally as a result of atmospheric movement, they have to be put there first, same as Teslas free energy.

Well in the end, we do transmit energy over long distances, with the use of a wire, and then anyone willing to pay for some of it can hook their wire to the long wire with a meter to keep track of how much they are using so the electric company can pay their bills too. You don't have to get your power from them however, we don't. Our home generates its power from the wind and sun, now that is free energy. While solar photovoltiac panels have only been around 50 years or so, wind power dates back to the 3rd century, even before Tesla showed up with his building sized lightning producing hairbrush. You don't have to be a physicist to make a wind turbine or a solar panel work either, we put ours in ourselves 10 years ago and it still works fine today.

UFOTV.com has an interesting video on this Tesla Unlimited Free Energy, how anyone can build a receivier and extract energy from the atmosphere for free. They are also publishers of videos and MP3 downloads on such proven scientific endeavors as, "Inside the Alien Mind," and, "Unknown UFO's today." If that's the source of your research, check and see if you can finish their latest MP3 download before the next ship lands in the desert. I found it interesting that this Tesla device can be built with common substances and ordinary tools by anyone handy, while at the same time claiming the notes on its construction were somehow mysteriously absconded with. If we don't have the notes, how do we know what the thing is made out of?

If you want to learn more about Tesla energy transmission, check out Wikipedia, or physicsforums.com, they have a pretty good discussion on the system and how it actually works. If you want free energy instead, check out solar and wind at some of the sources below, we did years ago, it's how we got to where we are today. Good luck Chris, and take care, Rudydoo
