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 property owner to use the sun to power everyday life: running your air conditioning unit, cleaning clothes, viewing TV, cooking supper. All while minimizing your carbon footprint, and without burning fossil fuels or putting a strain on the electrical grid. And while the ecological benefits of solar power are substantial, numerous home owners discover that the convenience, distinct features, and expense savings of owning a solar power system are even more enticing.

Top Ten Advantages of Solar Energy

#1 Drastically lower and even remove your electric costs

Whether you're a property owner, service, or nonprofit, electrical energy expenses can comprise a big part of your month-to-month costs. With a photovoltaic panel system, you'll create complimentary power for your system's entire 25+ year lifecycle. Even if you don't produce 100 percent of the energy you consume, solar will reduce your utility costs and you'll still save a lot of cash.

#2 Earn a fantastic return on your financial investment

Solar panels aren't a cost-- they're one of the very best methods to invest, with returns rivaling those of more conventional financial investments like stocks and bonds. Thanks to substantial electrical energy costs cost savings, the typical American property owner settles their photovoltaic panel system in seven to eight years and sees an ROI of 20 percent or more.

#3 Secure versus rising energy expenses

One of the most clear cut benefits of photovoltaic panels is the capability to hedge energy prices. In the past 10 years, domestic electricity costs have actually increased by approximately 3 percent every year. By purchasing a solar energy system now, you can fix your electricity rate and safeguard against unpredictable boosts in electrical energy expenses. If you're a service or property owner with changing capital, going solar likewise assists you better projection and manage your costs.

#4 Increase your home worth

Several research studies have actually found that homes equipped with solar energy systems have greater residential or commercial property values and offer faster 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 property buyers end up being more informed about solar, need for residential or commercial properties geared up 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 component of accomplishing energy independence in the United States. By increasing our capability to create electricity from the sun, we can likewise insulate our nation from rate variations in worldwide energy markets.

#6 Create jobs and assist your local economy

Inning accordance with The Solar Structure, the solar market included jobs at a rate nearly 12 times faster than the overall U.S. economy in 2015, representing 1.2 percent of all tasks in the country. This development is anticipated to continue. Because solar-related jobs have the tendency to be greater paying and can not be outsourced, they are a significant factor to the United States economy.

#7 Safeguard the environment

Solar is a terrific way to decrease your carbon footprint. Structures are accountable for 38 percent of all carbon emissions in the United States, and going solar can substantially reduce that number. A typical property photovoltaic panel system will get rid of three to four lots of carbon emissions each year-- the equivalent of planting over 100 trees yearly.

#8 Show your dedication to sustainability

Sustainability and business social responsibility are essential components of a company's culture and worths. They also produce bottom line results. Progressively, customers and communities are acknowledging and rewarding organisations that decide to operate responsibly. Businesses are discovering that "green" qualifications are an effective chauffeur of customer acquiring choices, developing goodwill and enhancing service outcomes.

#9 Start Conserving from Day 1

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

Lots of property owners opt to fund their photovoltaic panels with among the "pay-as-you-go" funding choices. This indicates that a third-party business-- the solar supplier-- owns the solar system and looks after installation, maintenance, monitoring and repair works. You simply pay the solar service provider for electrical energy-- less than you would've paid the utility 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 utility companies are infamous for their fluctuating and undependable electrical power rates. There is plainly an upward pattern.

With solar panels and easy math, we can determine how much electrical power will be produced, and most importantly, at exactly what price, for a minimum of the next 20 years (repaired energy costs).

Frequently Asked Questions

How Does Solar Energy Lowers Water Pollution?
I Know Solar Energy Reduces Low Air Pollution, But Idk Anything About Low Water Pollution?

Solar energy reduces water pollution by not creating pollution at all. The more energy created by solar power, the less is needed from conventional sources (coal, oil, natural gas) that pollute the air and water.

For example, air pollution raises the acidity in rain water, which changes the pH in the resulting runoff which goes into rivers and lakes. Also, some forms of mining or drilling for energy sources can pollute the water; there's a big controversy about a new method of extracting natural gas called "fracking." It has been blamed for a lot of water pollution in some areas. Run a search on fracking and you'll find a lot of disturbing videos on YouTube.

Solar, wind, geothermal and tidal energy sources do not generate pollution and should be explored. (Also, they don't result in revenue streams to countries who fund terrorism, another nice side benefit.)

Ok.I Can See Building The Solar Panel For Cheap, But How Much Is The Power Inverter?U Need To Change Dc To Ac.?

Those sites that advertise you can build your own solar panel cost effectively are misleading. http://www.nlcpr.com/Deceptions6.php

But to answer your question, an inexpensive inverter that's intended to plug into the cigarette lighter socket in a car is about $50 - but you can often find something for $19.99 on sale. Here are some examples (I don't endorse these, it's just an example): http://www.newegg.com/Store/SubCategory....

How Can You Terraform Mars Without A Moon, And With No Fossil Fuels, How Do You Think It Will Turn Out?
How Can You Terraform Mars Without A Moon, And With No Fossil Fuels, How Do You Think It Will Turn Out?

Why worry about fossil fuels? There's solar panels, nuclear power, possibly fusion, thermal differential...

And why is a moon important? Mars doesn't have oceans, so zero need for tides.

You do need to worry about the near vacuum for an atmosphere, weak gravity, no molten core (weak to nonexistent magnetic field), incoming meteoroids, radiation and few other things that makes life their awkward.

Solar Energy?
How Much Does It Cost To Get Solar Panels For Your Home? Where Do You Find It, Is This Available Everywhere?

On average, a turn key photo voltaic system will cost you about $4 per Watt. There may be some incentive rebate offers by your state, local government and possibly your electricity provider to help ease the cost of installation.

As to solar energy being available everywhere, for the most part, it is. However, different areas have a better solar production level than others. Arizona often rates as one of the best states for installing PV systems. Florida is also a good state too. On the other hand, areas around Seattle might not do so well.

What Are Some Reliable Sources Arguing Against Wind And Solar Power As Renewable Energy Resources?
I Am Writing A College Level Research Paper Arguing That Wind And Solar Power Are Not Reliable Renewable Energy Resources, Especially For Large Scale Energy Production. There Is No Lack Of Information On The Internet. My Problem Is Finding Reliable Sources That I Can Quote And Cite And Also Argue Against These Wind And Solar Energy. Ideally, These Sources Would Relate To Location/Climate Problems, Low Energy Production, High Construction/Maintenance Costs. I Am Also Writing About Biomass And Hydroelectric Power Being A Better Solution So A Source Comparing These With The Wind And Solar Power Resources Would Also Be Very Beneficial. If There Is Anyone Out There Who Knows Some Sources I Can Use I Would Appreciate Any Help.

You do have a problem as few, if any, reliable sources would count these proven resources out of any plausible energy production equation. The costs have been dropping drastically and the efficiencies increasing rapidly. Both wind and solar power sources are currently in use around the world as alternatives to the use of finite consumable fuels. Hydro-electric and biomass production should be looked at as additional means and not as either / or replacements. The goals are the same, an infinite source of affordable energy that does little to no damage to the environment.

Personally, and take it as such, I would like to see all avenues of renewable resources funded as much as possible. I think the answer is not going to be found in one form of energy but in a combination of many. Linking the best forms to their most suitable use would be a likely means for gaining the best possible outcome while incurring the least harm.

Even here in Alaska, solar has found many uses, wind farms are being purposed and hydro-electric is on the horizons. Diversity just may be the answer while these new forms of energy continue to evolve.
