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 resident to use the sun to power daily life: running your a/c, washing clothing, seeing TELEVISION, cooking dinner. All while minimizing your carbon footprint, and without burning nonrenewable fuel sources or putting a stress on the electrical grid. And while the environmental benefits of solar power are significant, lots of property owners discover that the benefit, unique features, and expense savings of owning a solar power system are much more enticing.

Top 10 Advantages of Solar Energy

#1 Significantly minimize or perhaps remove your electric costs

Whether you're a house owner, service, or not-for-profit, electrical power costs can make up a large portion of your monthly expenses. With a photovoltaic panel system, you'll generate totally free power for your system's whole 25+ year lifecycle. Even if you do not produce One Hundred Percent of the energy you take in, solar will lower your energy costs and you'll still save a great deal of money.

#2 Make a great return on your investment

Photovoltaic panels aren't a cost-- they're one of the very best methods to invest, with returns rivaling those of more conventional investments like stocks and bonds. Thanks to considerable electricity bill cost savings, the average American house owner settles their solar panel system in seven to 8 years and sees an ROI of 20 percent or more.

#3 Safeguard versus increasing energy costs

One of the most clear cut benefits of solar panels is the ability to hedge energy costs. In the previous 10 years, property electrical energy prices have gone up by approximately 3 percent annually. By buying a solar energy system now, you can repair your electrical energy rate and protect versus unforeseeable increases in electricity expenses. If you're a service or house owner with fluctuating money circulation, going solar also assists you much better forecast and manage your expenditures.

#4 Boost your house value

Numerous studies have found that homes equipped with solar energy systems have greater property values and sell more quickly than non-solar houses. Appraisers are increasingly taking solar installations into factor to consider as they value houses at the time of a sale, and as property buyers become more informed 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 an essential part of attaining energy independence in the United States. By increasing our capacity to produce electrical power from the sun, we can also insulate our country from price changes in global energy markets.

#6 Develop jobs and help your regional economy

Inning accordance with The Solar Structure, the solar market 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 country. This development is expected to continue. Due to the fact that solar-related tasks have the tendency to be higher paying and can not be contracted out, they are a significant contributor to the United States economy.

#7 Safeguard the environment

Solar is a terrific way to reduce your carbon footprint. Buildings are responsible for 38 percent of all carbon emissions in the United States, and going solar can significantly reduce that number. A common property photovoltaic panel system will eliminate 3 to 4 loads of carbon emissions each year-- the equivalent of planting over 100 trees yearly.

#8 Demonstrate your commitment to sustainability

Sustainability and corporate social obligation are essential parts of an organization's culture and worths. They also produce bottom line results. Progressively, customers and neighborhoods are acknowledging and rewarding organisations that opt to run responsibly. Companies are discovering that "green" qualifications are a powerful motorist of consumer getting decisions, producing goodwill and improving company results.

#9 Start Saving from Day 1

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

Lots of property owners pick to fund their solar panels with one of the "pay-as-you-go" funding alternatives. This implies that a third-party business-- the solar provider-- owns the solar system and looks after installation, upkeep, monitoring and repairs. You just pay the solar provider for electrical power-- less than you would've paid the energy business.

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 companies are notorious for their varying and undependable electrical energy rates. There is clearly an upward trend.

With photovoltaic panels and simple mathematics, we can calculate what does it cost? electricity will be produced, and most importantly, at exactly what cost, for a minimum of the next Twenty Years (fixed energy costs).

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 Do I Need To Power My Shed With Solar Energy?
I Need To Power Some Tools, Like The Electric Weedeater, Maybe The Jigsaw, Etc. Basically I Need An Actual Outlet, Not Just A Lightbulb. Thanks!

Well the first and most essential things would be the solar electric panels themselves. You will also need an inverter which you could get from any auto store, Sam's club or wal-mart. Then you'll need some batteries like car batteries, the more the better. Lastly you'll need sunny days.

Be prepared to buy lots of solar cells and to spend plenty on them.

Can I Have A Solar Battery Charger Hooked Up To A Battery At The Same Time As An Inverter That Is In Use?
If I Have A Car Battery, A Solar Battery Charger, And An Inverter, Can I Have Them All Hooked Up At The Same Time To Get Very Long Lasting Electricity, Assuming Of Course That The Item Plugged Into The Inverter Isn'T Drawing More Than What The Charger Provides? I'M Thinking Remote Location Set Up For A Time Lapse Camera Using Camera'S Dc In Line, Hooked To The Inverter, Hooked To The Battery, Which Is In Turn Hooked To The Solar Panel For Long Lasting Power So I Can Get Several Weeks Of Photos.

Yes, absolutely. You nailed the real constraint on the head already, it's all about power consumption. Some things to consider:

Don't forget to factor in power consumed by the inverter itself, in addition to the item you've got plugged into it. If you've got a good amp probe you can measure this directly, but keep in mind you'll need a good "True RMS" meter to get an accurate reading of DC current.

Consider using a deep cycle battery rather than just a standard car battery. They're more expensive, but will work much better for your project. The battery label should indicate "amp hours". You can use this to calculate how large a battery you'll need to carry your load over night without discharging the battery.

Many inverters have a built in low-voltage shutdown feature that will turn the inverter off well before the battery is fully discharged, so account for that with your battery size.

Finally, a question, you mentioned that your camera had a DC line in. If that's the case, why mess with the inverter? If I understand correctly you're going solar panel (12VDC) -> car battery (12VDC) -> inverter (12VDC to 120 VAC) -> plug in transformer block (120VAC to some voltage VDC) -> camera, right? IF that's the case, you could go solar -> car battery -> resistor -> camera. It'd be more energy efficient. For that matter, if your camera isn't pulling all that much power, and I assume has a rechargeable battery already, you could probably do it with a solar panel and a resistor.

Email me directly if you'd like, I've been down this road before.

Energy Subsidies?
One Of The Favorite Things For Opponents Of Alternative Energy Sources To Do Is To Point Out That Alternative Energy Can'T Compete With Conventional Energy Without Government Subsidies. Yet, Numerous Direct And Indirect Subsidies Are Given To Fossil Fuel Sources Like Oil And Coal, Such As Cheap Loans From The Agriculture Department'S Rural Utilities Service. Indirect Subsidies Include Items Such As Free Public Use Of Roads, Tax Credits For Oil Drilling, Subsidized Health Care For Respiratory Illness And Military Actions Needed To Maintain A Steady Oil Supply. Should We Continue To Subsidize Dirty Energy Sources? If All Subsidies, Direct And Indirect, Were Removed From Fossil Fuels, Would They Still Be Cheaper Then Alternative Energy?

Since there is little choice for the future than to switch to renewable energy sources, it doesn't seem to make a lot of sense to me to keep subsidizing non renewable sources let alone give more to them than other, greener means of producing energy.

Coal and oil would still probably be cheaper for a while if all the funding was cut off. There is still a lot of money to be made from them and cheap to produce. That should be beside the point though.

Even nuclear energy produces less waste than coal and oil. Yes long term storage is a problem, but then again, so is dumping excess CO2 into the atmosphere when we have destroyed the other side of the equation with deforestation and desertification. The carbon has to go somewhere. It would be better in the long run to fun newer, high efficiency nuclear plants and technology than to give another billion to oil companies.

Other clean sources, such as wind, solar, Geo-thermal, wave energy should get even more funding. That is the only way to insure our future.

How Is Energy Captured And Stored?
I Have Been Experimenting Around With My Tools Out Of Curiosity, And I Decided I Wanted To Try To Charge A Battery By Just Winding Up A Device.. It Occurs To Me That Both Water And Wind Mills Just Spin To Generate Electricity. The Water Or Wind Is A Constant Renewable Source That Push Gears To Somehow Make Energy. I Don'T Get Solar Energy But Thats A Whole Different Topic, So My Question Is How Is Electricity Generated From Moving Gears, Also What Kind Of Setup Would I Need? (I'M Self Taught On Everything So All My Knowledge On The Subject Is Trial And Error.., I Know I Need 3 Gears And Chain Similar To A Bike, But I'M Still Confused As To How To Get The Electricity, And Then How To Store It. I'M Assuming Just Hooking A Battery Up To The Contraption)

that isn't so easy. wind or water turns wheels, and they turn stator and rotor of electrical generator which provide electricity which are stored in acc

What Are The Main Charateristics Of Aries Women?
What Can I Expect From My Scorpio Husband? We Have Been Together 6 Years. He Is Always Trying To Change Me.....

Is Aries hot? You bet! Being the first sign of the Zodiac you are ruled by the hot and fiery Mars. Those born under Aries burn brightly, taking the initiative in everything they do. There are no half-measures in the Arian personality, so you’re lively, energetic, daring and sometimes combative in achieving your goals. As with any other star sign, Aries has its positive and negative traits, yet an Arian can never be accused of laziness in any form. They are pioneers and love to lead, exhibiting independence and freedom of expression in everything they do. Therefore, many opt for an autonomous line of business.

Aries have an instinctive sense of what has to be done so there’s no dillydallying in their approach to life. You view all experiences as a challenge, to be handled with the utmost zeal and exuberance. In doing so, others possibly find you too assertive and even self-centred, but this is usually because of your confidence and self-assurance—which the Arian possesses at the heart of his or her nature. Lacking in some of the more discreet social skills, the Arian ought to become more sensitive to the reactions of others so as not to give the wrong impression of selfishness and egotism. This is more pronounced in a team environment, where your freedom-loving spirit needs space to conduct work and business on your own terms. Give-and-take may become one of the most important challenges and life lessons for you, Aries.

Speaking of work and daily activities, patience is also at times lacking in your repertoire. More attention to the detail of duty is required to bring out the brilliance and dexterity of your temperament. This is also true in relationships, where you perceive weakness or slowness of any kind as something to be scorned. You must remember that not everyone is as quick-witted and capable as an Arian so you must accommodate the varying grades of people with whom you interact. If you can learn to balance these qualities of patience and sensitivity with courage and determination, you will find your lives magically transformed and spiritualised. In this present life, Aries, you are destined to lead and assume a strong position in society and will therefore need to tackle these responsibilities with a view to setting an example to others. Once the gentler and cooler side of your character is tapped, this can be a wonderfully tempering quality, making you much loved and looked up to by family, friends and work associates alike.

For those of you born between 21 and 30 March, the planet Mars will be doubly strong and ruling your destiny. You can be particularly demanding in the way you approach life and will brook no opposition from those who express different views. The increased Mars energy indicates you have abundant energy and physical stamina and are well advised to involve yourself with activities that adequately release that pent-up frustration or anger resulting from this twofold Martian vibration.

If you’re born between 31 March and 10 April, the Solar vibrations blend with Mars to make you a proud and extremely loyal type of Arian. The Sun’s energy simply means you have traces of the other fire sign, Leo, as part of your make-up. You’re one of the brighter types within your star sign and can attract people most easily and also impose your will on them. Your karmic lesson this time round is to learn how to use your powers and your shining qualities with the utmost responsibility.

If you’re born between 11 and 19 April, your Arian nature is affected by the planet Jupiter, which endows you with noble and spiritual characteristics. As a result you will have gentler and philanthropic motivations behind what you do. You do run the risk of occasionally pushing yourself harder than your body and mind can handle. Though you mean well, the heat of the moment catches you up and you say and do things you may later regret. You’re a very lucky individual, though; as Jupiter’s beneficial rays promise protection and many interesting opportunities for you in life.

As for the question about the hubby-

Aries gets along OK with Scorpio. Just a so-so match, Aries With Scorpio has a reasonable chance.

Aries With Scorpio:

Possessive Scorpio will never go for the love them and leave them attitude of some Aries. Even though there are many Aries that would not do this, as they are quite honorable, the do give that impression. This is mostly due to the Aries high energy level and passion for life. The "depth" of Scorpio is foreign to Aries. If Scorpio can learn trust Aries, and Aries can deal with Scorpio's insecurities, this relationship can work.

aries and scorpio - astrological compatibility rank = 4 (10 is best)

Since Aries won't take orders from Scorpions and Scorpio will never take a back seat. Love cannot be a bonfire between these two. Though they both are physical, energetic, and passionate in their physical nature and each has a forceful personality and wants to control the other there is no room for these two.

ARIES goes with Leo, Sagittarius, Gemini and Aquarius (most compatible is Leo).

Best Match For Aries Is Leo
Aries has a fiery personality, and can be quite head strong. This can make them hard to match with other people, but also make them very passionate with some. Leo and Aries are perhaps the best of all matches, but if things go wrong and one betrays the other, it can get explosively ugly!

Worst Match For Aries is Cancer
Hardly a match made in heaven Aries and Cancer tend to clash. Do not despair if you are in one of these relationships, true love will overcome. Both Aries and cancer are powerful and very self expressive. However, Cancer can be sensitive and somewhat anxious while Aries people are dominant and spontaneous. Aries is not the greatest at expressing their feelings. This leads to the constant annoyance of the moody, retrospective Cancer.
