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 homeowner to utilize the sun to power everyday life: running your air conditioning system, washing clothes, watching TELEVISION, cooking supper. All while decreasing your carbon footprint, and without burning nonrenewable fuel sources or putting a pressure on the electrical grid. And while the ecological benefits of solar power are considerable, lots of residents find that the benefit, special functions, and expense savings of owning a solar power system are a lot more attractive.

Leading Benefits of Solar Energy

#1 Drastically lower or perhaps remove your electrical costs

Whether you're a property owner, business, or not-for-profit, electricity costs can make up a large part of your regular monthly costs. With a photovoltaic panel system, you'll generate free power for your system's entire 25+ year lifecycle. Even if you don't produce One Hundred Percent of the energy you consume, solar will minimize your utility bills and you'll still save a great deal of loan.

#2 Earn a great return on your investment

Solar panels aren't a cost-- they are among the very best ways to invest, with returns rivaling those of more traditional financial investments like stocks and bonds. Thanks to substantial electrical power expense savings, the typical American house owner settles their solar panel system in 7 to 8 years and sees an ROI of 20 percent or more.

#3 Safeguard against increasing energy costs

One of the most clear cut advantages of solar panels is the ability to hedge energy rates. In the past ten years, property electrical power prices have actually increased by approximately three percent every year. By purchasing a solar energy system now, you can fix your electrical energy rate and secure versus unforeseeable increases in electricity expenses. If you're a service or house owner with rising and falling capital, going solar likewise helps you much better projection and handle your expenditures.

#4 Increase your home or business value

Several research studies have actually discovered that houses equipped with solar energy systems have higher property values and offer faster than non-solar houses. Appraisers are increasingly taking solar installations into consideration as they value houses at the time of a sale, and as property buyers end up being more informed about solar, demand for properties 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 crucial component of achieving energy self-reliance in the United States. By increasing our capability to produce electrical power from the sun, we can also insulate our country from rate changes in international energy markets.

#6 Create jobs and assist your regional economy

Inning accordance with The Solar Foundation, the solar industry included jobs at a rate almost 12 times faster than the general U.S. economy in 2015, representing 1.2 percent of all jobs in the nation. This growth is anticipated to continue. Due to the fact that solar-related jobs tend to be greater paying and can not be outsourced, they are a significant contributor to the U.S. economy.

#7 Secure the environment

Solar is an excellent method to lower 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 residential solar panel system will get rid of three to 4 heaps of carbon emissions each year-- the equivalent of planting over 100 trees yearly.

#8 Demonstrate your commitment to sustainability

Sustainability and business social duty are necessary components of an organization's culture and values. They likewise produce bottom line outcomes. Significantly, customers and communities are recognizing and rewarding companies that pick to run responsibly. Companies are discovering that "green" credentials are a powerful driver of customer purchasing decisions, creating goodwill and enhancing business outcomes.

#9 Start Saving from Day 1

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

Many homeowners opt to finance their photovoltaic panels with among the "pay-as-you-go" financing options. This means that a third-party business-- the solar service provider-- owns the planetary system and takes care of setup, maintenance, tracking and repair works. You simply pay the solar supplier for electrical energy-- less than you would've paid the utility business.

Since 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 notorious for their varying and unreliable electrical power prices. There is plainly an upward pattern.

With solar panels and simple math, we can compute just how much electrical energy will be produced, and most notably, at exactly what rate, for at least the next 20 years (repaired energy expenses).

Frequently Asked Questions

Can Solar Cells Reasonably Power A House ?
I Vaguely Remember A Video In The Past And On It I Believe A Major Bay Area Company ( Google Or Microsoft ? ) Used Solar Power Cells To Power ( Or Help Power ) A Buidling.

My house is 148% solar power. I sell to the electric company 48% of my electricity. Just got to have generators for emergencies and plenty of batteries and panels and a knowledge in solar power systems. Solar panels can coast a lot but the energy it converts pays for it self and keeps going..

Would Like To Install Either Solar Or Wind Energy Into My Home. Tons Of Questions,Battery'S.Size Of Windmill,C?
Hargers How To......You Get The Picture. Any Help Would Be Great. Maybe Some Specific Websites,Thanks

For Solar Energy, you're going to have to put in at least $20 - $30,000 for the panels. You're going to have to have some sort of storage tank for the stored energy to be released by your Solar Panels into. With extra energy, you can sell it to power companies for some $$. You need a storage tank because, what if you have a cloudy day? You need some of that energy to back up your refrigerator or computer!
~Hope this helps! It costs you a lot at first, but it all works out in the end!

A Hybrid Car Gas,Electric,And Solar To Chagre Up When Car Is Idle Is Cost Effecctive How Do I Do This?
You Use Less Money If Ya Car Charges On Solar Energy While Its Not Moving Like Over Night. Can I Make A Profit?

The amount of power you can get out of a panel that will fit on a car is pretty low. Assuming 100 square feet, that is about 1 kW. If you get 8 hours of direct sun a day (and that is difficult to do), hat is 8 kW-hours of energy, which cost about 80¢ from the power company. And will charge the battery about 1/5 of the way (depending on the battery size, of course).

For Solar Street Light, How To Calculate The Rating For Leds Used, Battery And The Solar Module Itself?
Let Say Leds Consumes 40 Watts And Need To Be On For 10 Hours. What Next? How To Chose Battery And Solar Module For It?

It's a difficult thing to calculate. You need:
worse case number of hours of full sun per day
Number of hours the batteries have to run the lights on days without sun.

The problem is, you can have perhaps 3 days without sun due to a storm. that means the batteries have to power the light for that number of hours. And then when you get, say, 6 hours of sun, the solar panels have to be powerful enough to recharge that bank of batteries in that time.

So, you have to set all of these parameters, else you wind up with several hundreds of watts of solar panel for a 40 watt light and a huge battery.

Take an example. An ordinary auto battery can store about 1 kW-hour of energy. To operate the 40 watt light for 70 hours, means you need a 2800 kW-hour of storage, or 3 auto batteries. To recharge that 2800 kW-hours in 6 hours, you need 500 watts of solar panel. And that doesn't count losses.

How Is Electric Cars Any Better Than Gas Cars For The Environment?
Isn'T Charging An Electric Car Like Leaving All Your Lights On? How Is It Necessarily Any Better?

The short answer :

You are correct if we use fossil fuels to generate the electricity it would be roughly the same for both electric cars and gas cars.

The long answer:

Typical thermal efficiency for utility-scale electrical generators is around 33% for coal and oil-fired plants, and 56 – 60% (LHV) for combined-cycle gas-fired plants. [1] Transmission and distribution losses in the USA were estimated at 6.5% in 2007 [2] giving an efficiency rating of about 37% for fossil fuel by the time it gets to our homes.

Electric vehicles convert about 59%–62% of the electrical energy from the grid to power at the wheels—conventional gasoline vehicles only convert about 17%–21% of the energy stored in gasoline to power at the wheels. [3]

So the total efficiency for fossil fuel energy as the source of the electricity is about 22%, only slightly higher than gasoline vehicles. A fair statement would be that in the case of using fossil fuels as the primary source of energy for both cars and generating electricity the energy used would be roughly the same.

I didn't count in non CO2 producing sources for generating electricity such as nuclear, hydro, wind, and solar. While coal plants are being replaced with more cost efficient and less polluting natural gas fired power stations as well as non polluting wind and solar. It should be obvious that an electric car is currently less bad for the environment than an internal combustion engine and due to the shift in cleaner electricity sources, the electric car is expected to improve even more over time. Although you could argue that some coal fired plants could be closed because they are no longer needed to charge the electric cars.

Solar on the roof is already cheaper than buying it of the grid [4] and some utility companies are now taxing people who feed the excess energy back into the grid (taxing the sun), using that excess solar energy to charge the vehicle would be make economic sense and would be non polluting.

I hope that this helps.
