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, washing clothes, watching TELEVISION, cooking supper. All while reducing your carbon footprint, and without burning fossil fuels or putting a pressure on the electrical grid. And while the ecological benefits of solar power are substantial, many property owners discover that the benefit, unique features, and expense savings of owning a solar power system are much more alluring.

Top 10 Benefits of Solar Energy

#1 Significantly minimize or perhaps remove your electrical costs

Whether you're a house owner, business, or nonprofit, electrical energy costs can make up a big part of your month-to-month expenditures. With a photovoltaic panel system, you'll produce free power for your system's whole 25+ year lifecycle. Even if you do not produce One Hundred Percent of the energy you consume, solar will minimize your utility costs and you'll still conserve a great deal of loan.

#2 Make an excellent return on your financial investment

Solar panels aren't an expenditure-- they are among the very best methods to invest, with returns matching those of more standard financial investments like stocks and bonds. Thanks to significant electrical energy costs cost savings, the typical American homeowner pays off their photovoltaic panel system in 7 to 8 years and sees an ROI of 20 percent or more.

#3 Protect versus increasing energy expenses

Among the most clear cut benefits of solar panels is the ability to hedge utility prices. In the previous ten years, residential electrical energy rates have gone up by approximately 3 percent yearly. By investing in a solar energy system now, you can repair your electrical power rate and safeguard against unpredictable boosts in electrical power expenses. If you're an organisation or property owner with rising and falling capital, going solar likewise helps you much better forecast and handle your expenses.

#4 Increase your house value

Multiple research studies have actually found that houses geared up with solar energy systems have higher property worths and offer quicker than non-solar homes. Appraisers are significantly taking solar installations into factor to consider as they value homes at the time of a sale, and as property buyers become 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 a key component of attaining energy self-reliance in the United States. By increasing our capacity to create electrical power from the sun, we can also insulate our country from cost fluctuations in worldwide energy markets.

#6 Create jobs and assist your regional economy

According to The Solar Foundation, the solar industry added tasks at a rate nearly 12 times faster than the total U.S. economy in 2015, representing 1.2 percent of all tasks in the nation. This development is expected to continue. Due to the fact that solar-related tasks tend to be higher paying and can not be contracted out, they are a considerable contributor to the United States economy.

#7 Protect the environment

Solar is an excellent way to minimize your carbon footprint. Structures are accountable for 38 percent of all carbon emissions in the U.S., and going solar can significantly decrease that number. A common domestic photovoltaic panel system will get rid of 3 to four loads of carbon emissions each year-- the equivalent of planting over 100 trees yearly.

#8 Show your commitment to sustainability

Sustainability and business social obligation are very important parts of an organization's culture and values. They also produce bottom line results. Progressively, consumers and neighborhoods are recognizing and rewarding companies that decide to operate properly. Organisations are discovering that "green" credentials are an effective chauffeur of consumer purchasing choices, developing goodwill and improving company outcomes.

#9 Start Conserving 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 cash down.

Many house owners choose to finance their solar panels with one of the "pay-as-you-go" funding options. This suggests that a third-party business-- the solar company-- owns the solar system and looks after installation, upkeep, monitoring and repair works. You just pay the solar provider for electricity-- less than you would've paid the energy business.

Since June 2013, 75% of all American houses have access to pay-as-you-go solar.

#10. Solar is a Secure Financial investment

The energy business are well-known for their fluctuating and undependable electrical power rates. There is plainly an upward trend.

With solar panels and simple math, we can determine just how much electrical power will be created, and most significantly, at what cost, for at least the next Twenty Years (fixed 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.

The Lease

  • Low, fixed payments each month
  • System insurance for 20 years, including maintenance
  • Flexible end-of-term options, including system upgrade, lease extension, and free panel removal

Power Purchase Agreement (PPA)

  • We own the solar panel system
  • $0 down for installation
  • Customers only pay for the solar energy that they use

Purchase

  • Customer pays for the system upfront and owns the system
  • System monitoring and maintenance for 20 years
  • Receive 30% federal tax credit
  • See a return on investment within 7-10 years

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

Please Answer This Survey Related To Solar Energy! Thank You!?
A. Do You Think We Should Make Solar Energy Our Main Source Of Energy In The Future? B. Which Alternative Source Of Energy Do You Think Is The Best? (Examples: Nuclear Fission, Nuclear Fusion, Geothermal, Tide, Hydroelectric, Solar, Wind, Hydrogen, And Biomass)

Solar energy is good, but I think our best option is not to rely on just one form of energy generation, but on various sources. Solar may work good in most places, but it's best suited for places like Arizona or California, whereas wind power might be better in the midwest or other windy areas. Geothermal I think is a great source of power that's often overlooked. It can provide base load power to utilities, which means it can produce power 24/7, unlike solar or wind. Nuclear is good so long as the waste is safely disposed of, and that can be very difficult to get the utilities to pay for that. Hydroelectric, at least in the US, has mostly been used up. We've dammed up pretty much every river that we could, and while we can keep using it, we can't really create more power from hydroelectric sources. Hydrogen and boimass (if you're referring to ethanol) aren't really ready to be widely adopted yet, the technology needs more work for them to become more cost competitive with other sources of power.

Where Does The Energy Come From To Power Milankovitch Cycles?
----------------------------

Venus, Jupiter & Mars are also big heavy objects & close enough to Earth to cause noticeable modulations to it's orbit.

My impression was that Jupiter was Earths predominate eccentricity modulator - but regardless the principal is this... If Earth were alone in the Solar System the eccentricity of it's orbit would not change - the variations responsible for the Milankovitch cycles come from gravitational influence of the other orbiting planets.

The 'energy' in question is the kinetic energy of the orbiting planets.

Not much energy gets 'consumed' though, it's more like it gets kicked back & forth via gravity.

So the process isn't exact ally 'powered' any more than any orbit is.

It takes a lot of energy to put something in orbit, but not much to keep it there.

EDIT:

"Bobble & Sudden" aren't really accurate terms here. What's happening is a very slow variations as to how elliptical Earths orbit is, & how tilted it is, and where the Orbital Summer is compared to Axial Summer. Right now the Orbital Summer is mild & in the middle of our Winter BUT when it intensifies & and slides into our Summer THAT will make for some pretty dramatic weather.


Earth's orbit varies in HOW elliptical it is (eccentricity) over a 100,000 year cycle from virtually circular to about 3 times its current eccentricity. The current value results in about 6.8% more solar power (isolation) striking the Earth at perihelion than aphelion.

So Earth's eccentricity does in fact generate a Summer of sorts. Let's call this the E-Summer.

However what we normally call Summer is based on Earth being tilted by 23.5 degrees.
Let's call this T-Summer.
Basically it means when the Northern Hemisphere is tipped toward the Sun, we Northerners have more direct light AND longer days - which of course means the Southerners are having shorter colder days, aka a T-Winter.

Hmmmm... but wait. The E-Summer happens to the whole planet once a year, whereas the T-Summer happens on opposite sides of the planet on opposite sides of the year, THAT means the E-Summer cannot possibly coincide with both T-Summers.

And it doesn't. It turns out that the middle of the E-Summer (perihelion) is about two weeks after the middle of the North T-Winter. In other words the Northerners have warmer winters than Southerners.

Well for now anyway.... because turns out the E-year (anomalistic) is about 25 minutes longer than the T-year (calendar year). Which means Earths perihelion is slowly moving backwards through the calendar. So 10,500 years from now the Sothern Hemisphere will have the warmer winters.

Of course HOW MUCH warmer the winters are depends on which way the Eccentricity value has moved. If it goes to zero, then the E-Summer goes away. When it's 3 times the present value, it's a LOT warmer because the E-Season insolence varies by 23%, rather than today's modest 6.8%.

Then add to that the fact that Earth's tilt is also oscillating about 4 degrees every 41, 000 years, creating greater & smaller T-Season swings.

Collectively these are called Milankovitch cycles and more than a few Climatologists believe they explain Earths long term Global Temperature cycles.

So don't let anyone tell you the E-Summers don't matter. 6.8% is NOT insignificant. That said though they affect the WHOLE globe & only shift 1 day every 58 years - so the seasons we NOTICE are Tilt driven.

Now beyond this there is also a theory that says Cosmic Ray variance from our Suns orbital transits through the Galactic arms creates long periods of intense cloud formation.
(But this is not part of the Milankovitch cycles)

When Is Solar Energy Expected To Be Easily Accessible To The General Public?
Thank U!! It'S For A Project And I Have No Clue What It Means :]]]] I Need Help And I Would Love It If U Helped!! Thank U!!! Please Answer!! Thank U!!

whenever the government decides it's a good time to offer more than just tax incentives for the initial installment of renewable energy devices.

Our fossil fuels are not infinite; solar power is. It's a theory that in about 40-50 years, when we have "used up" our main energy sources, solar energy will become readily available to everyone (with a large back yard). You need "x" amount of area to cultivate the sun. Solar power is also weather dependent, which is probably another reason why people don't feel like investing.

When Did Wind Energy Become Really Popular?
I Have Searched Online And I Really Can'T Find Much. I Know It Was Used In The Early 20Th Century But I'M Curious As To When Society Really Became Interested In It And Started Using It To Power Cities. (I Know They Use It A Lot In Europe). Thanks Any Help Is Appreciated. I'M Working On An Essay, I'M Not Asking You To Do My Home Work But I Can'T Find This & I Was Hoping Someone Might Be A Little More Educated In This Area? Thanks:)

In the 1980s in Germany, when they started to build windfarms. Now 20% of all electricity in Germany is from windfarms and 10% is solar power.

Where Does Most Of The Energy Used On Earth Come From?
I Guessed The Sun But I Really Dont Know...Plz Answer! Thanks!!! :D

Most energy used on Earth came from the sun. Fossil fuels are energy from the sun millions of years ago and fossil fuels are our primary energy source. Solar power comes from the sun, wind power indirectly comes from the sun, due to the uneven heating of the Earth...
