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 use the sun to power everyday life: running your air conditioner, cleaning clothing, viewing TELEVISION, cooking dinner. All while reducing your carbon footprint, and without burning fossil fuels or putting a stress on the electrical grid. And while the environmental advantages of solar power are significant, numerous residents discover that the benefit, special functions, and cost savings of owning a solar power system are a lot more enticing.

Top 10 Advantages of Solar Energy

#1 Dramatically minimize and even eliminate your electrical expenses

Whether you're a property owner, company, or not-for-profit, electrical power expenses can comprise a big portion of your regular monthly costs. With a solar panel system, you'll generate free power for your system's entire 25+ year lifecycle. Even if you do not produce One Hundred Percent of the energy you take in, solar will lower your utility expenses and you'll still conserve a great deal of loan.

#2 Make a fantastic return on your financial investment

Solar panels aren't an expenditure-- they're one of the very best methods to invest, with returns matching those of more traditional financial investments like stocks and bonds. Thanks to significant electrical energy bill savings, the typical American property owner pays off their solar panel system in 7 to 8 years and sees an ROI of 20 percent or more.

#3 Secure versus rising energy expenses

One of the most clear cut advantages of photovoltaic panels is the ability to hedge utility rates. In the previous 10 years, domestic electrical energy rates have gone up by an average of 3 percent annually. By investing in a solar energy system now, you can fix your electrical energy rate and secure against unforeseeable boosts in electrical power costs. If you're a company or homeowner with changing capital, going solar likewise helps you better projection and handle your expenditures.

#4 Increase your house worth

Multiple research studies have actually discovered that homes geared up with solar energy systems have greater property worths and offer faster than non-solar houses. Appraisers are significantly taking solar setups into consideration as they value houses at the time of a sale, and as property buyers become 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 an essential element of achieving energy independence in the United States. By increasing our capability to produce electricity from the sun, we can also insulate our nation from price variations in global energy markets.

#6 Create jobs and help your regional economy

Inning accordance with The Solar Structure, the solar market included tasks 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 growth is anticipated to continue. Since solar-related tasks have the tendency to be higher paying and can not be contracted out, they are a considerable contributor to the U.S. economy.

#7 Protect the environment

Solar is an excellent method to minimize your carbon footprint. Buildings are accountable for 38 percent of all carbon emissions in the United States, and going solar can substantially decrease that number. A normal residential photovoltaic panel system will remove 3 to 4 lots of carbon emissions each year-- the equivalent of planting over 100 trees every year.

#8 Demonstrate your commitment to sustainability

Sustainability and corporate social responsibility are crucial parts of an organization's culture and worths. They likewise produce bottom line outcomes. Increasingly, consumers and neighborhoods are acknowledging and rewarding companies that decide to operate responsibly. Companies are discovering that "green" qualifications are an effective chauffeur of consumer acquiring choices, creating goodwill and improving organisation outcomes.

#9 Start Saving from Day 1

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

Numerous property owners pick to fund their solar panels with among the "pay-as-you-go" financing alternatives. This means that a third-party business-- the solar supplier-- owns the planetary system and takes care of installation, upkeep, monitoring and repairs. You merely pay the solar provider for electricity-- less than you would've paid the utility company.

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

#10. Solar is a Secure Investment

The utility companies are notorious for their fluctuating and undependable electricity rates. There is clearly an upward pattern.

With photovoltaic panels and easy mathematics, we can calculate just how much electricity will be generated, and most notably, at what price, for at least the next 20 years (fixed energy expenses).

Frequently Asked Questions

Help Me Out Here – I Don’T Understand The Controversy Over Global Warming.?
Help Me Out Here – I Don’T Understand The Controversy Over Global Warming. I Would Also Ask You To Limit The Sarcasm And Post An Intelligent Rebuttal Or Affirmation. I Believe The Climate Is Changing, And Is Warming Up. I’M An Engineer By Trade And I Am Used To Evaluating Data. I Believe That The Changes In The Tundra And Permafrost, As Well As The Trends In Arctic Sea Ice, Offer Incontrovertible Proof That Things Are Warming Up. But, If I’M Wrong, And We Do Commit To Alternative Energy Sources And Global Warming Does Not Happen, Here Are The Consequences: 1) Remember The Oil Embargo In 73? The $147/Barrel In 2008 When Iran Tested Its New Rocket? The Rationing In 79? And, Of Course The Wars Over Kuwait And Iraq. Eliminating Dependence On Foreign Oil Eliminates Those. (Those Who Ignore History Are Bound To Repeat It.) 2) Our Own Domestic Oil Production Would Be Enough For Our Own Use, Plus Exporting Some – Our Refineries Would Continue, But Now We Would Have A Cash Flow Instead Of Dollars Flying Out To Support Air Condition Tents In Saudi Arabia. 3) I Bought My First Calculator, (It Only Had The Basic 4 Functions And No Memory) In 1970 For $32. Now You Can Get A Multifunction Calculator Watch At The Dollar Store. My First Tv, A 19” Rca, Was $379 In 1975. I Can Now Get A 43” Plasma Tv For The Same Price. Over Time, We Have Repeatedly Shown That Technology Improvements Lower Prices. The Price Of Solar Panels Has Already Plummeted In The Last 3 Years Alone. The List Goes On And On. Bottom Line, Devoting The Country To Alternative Energy Is Just The Smart Thing To Do. And, If I’M Right And Global Warming Is Happening, And We Ignore It, The Consequences Are Self-Evident. Here Is A Short List: 1) The Record Wild Fires In The West Are Just A Taste Of Things To Come. The Record Droughts In Texas, Australia, England, Mexico, Etc Will Become The Norm. 2) It Won’T Be Just Florida Or Louisiana Tha Tis Plagued B Y Hurricanes. New Jersey, New York, Massachusetts, And Other Points North Will Need To Protect Themselves From Such Storms. The Record Hurricanes (Called Typhoons Over There) In The Pacific And Asia Will Increase. What Am I Missing??

"If global warming is real, we would be in action. If global warming is not happening, we are improving the competitive position of the United States. Just as we saw in computers, calculators, color TV’s, etc, the price will plummet as demand increases. We are already seeing that in solar panels and wind turbines. "

The changes in the price of your calculator, for example, were based on good old capitalism. It did not need the artificial stimulus that you see in solar panels and wind turbines.

As to your old theory, "the price will plummet as the demand increases." That was at one time, until the government got involved. Just look at the price of gasoline. Before the invention of the 'Ottocycle' in the 1870s, commonly referred to as a reciprocal engine, there was no use for gasoline. It was a by product. It was a throw away. It had no use. Its value was below zero. As the demand went up, the price has INCREASED. Quite the opposite of your theory. And the AGW laws restricting the production of petroleum products has only INCREASED the price even more.

I could go on and on, but you are absolutely wrong. That calculator is a good example. Today's calculator is made in other countries, away from the bureaucracy of the US. The semiconductor industry has mainly gone abroad due to US governmental influence. That calculator of the 70s was probably a TI made in Texas. Today that same calculator made in Texas would cost even more, due to government intervention. Why do you think everyone, even IBM, went abroad. To stay competitive.

Take electricity, as another example. At one time power companies were paying their employees to dream up new uses for electricity because they wanted people to use more electricity. At the time it was mainly used for light and only that. It was cheaper and cleaner than the kerosene lamps. The toaster was one such invention that increased electric usage. The efficiency of the electric motor, which Tesla perfected and never got paid for by Edison, increased the usage of electricity in industry and the energy prices were low. You could buy electricity for less than a penny a kilowatt. Now that the demand for electricity is higher, has the price gone down? Definitely not! We are told the we are gluttons for power and we must pay more. And a lot of that is due to AGW a phony concept.

I can remember, when I was young, that most farms did not have electricity. They were forced to have electricity by the REA (Rural Electrification Administration). Now they are called gluttons by the greenies.

Your theory of economics is horrible. Today's economics is more like the illegal drug industry. At first they will give you the drug. Then as your dependency on that drug increases, so does the price. That is irregardless of the supply. We have been ultimately forced into a fossil fuel dependent world, by who? The government. Who highly regulates the supply of fossil fuel production? The government. Who taxes the fossil fuel? The government.

Entering Carter years in the US we were paying around $0.30 for a gallon of gas. Previously I had purchased gasoline for a low as $0.14 a gallon in a state that had $0.07 a gallon tax. Has the demand gone up? Yes. Has the price gone down? No. That blows your theory right out of the water, whether you want to admit it or not. Why has the price gone up? Government intervention by using AGW as a tool. And what is Government intervention in the economy? Communism.

Quote by Gus Hall, former leader of the Communist Party USA: "Human society cannot basically stop the destruction of the environment under capitalism. Socialism is the only structure that makes it possible."

Quote by Jack Trevors, Editor-in-Chief of Water, Air, & Soil Pollution: "The capitalistic systems of economy follow the one principal rule: the rule of profit making. All else must bow down to this rule…The current USA is an example of a failed capitalistic state in which essential long-term goals such as prevention of climate change and limitation of human population growth are subjugated to the short-term profit motive and the principle of economic growth."

Explain Different Reasons Why Prices Of Solar Panels Must Be Dropped, Please Be Particular And Longer, Longer?

In the long term, the price of technology goods has a floor at the raw material cost. Solar panels are not at this point, yet, so in the long term, I expect price drops.

In the short term, the market forces of supply and demand will dominate. There is capacity for much greater supply, but manufacturers have scaled back in the slowing economy. One would think that the economy would have killed demand, but yet I see vigorous demand in my local region. So it's chaotic - hard to say which way prices will go in the next few months.

Why Is Solar Power So Important For Us?

Eventually within the next 30 years all the oil will be used and another source of energy will have to be used. One alternate source of oil is solar power, which is cheaper as power created with solar panels is used locally and not traded.

Solar Panel Charging Question?
How Long Does It Take A 15 Watt, 12 Volt Solar Panel To Charge A 12 Volt R.V. Battery?

Most solar panels have something called a charge controller on them. This prevents electricity from going backwards from the battery to the panel. Solar panels are rated at 12V but they do put out a little more than that during full sun operation.

You didn't specify the size of your battery but it really doesn't matter. It comes down to your consumption of power. If you are only charging the RV battery so it maintains a charge when you don't use it very much, a 15 watt panel is fine. It will charge the battery and keep the small drains on the battery from making it go dead ( the clock radio, the theft deterrent system, etc use power even when RV is off)

But if you are using the battery to run things when you are parked, you probably don't have a big enough panel.

If you use a 30watt fluorescent light and a 100 watt laptop, you need 130 watts of power saved up every hour in your battery and that's with no inefficiencies.

So if your panel puts out 15 watts an hour and you are using 130 watts an hour, you need 130 watts/ 15 watts = 9 hours minimum of charge time to run your stuff for just one hour.

You probably need a panel of around a 100 watts to get any meaningful use of your battery. Plus, you never want to run your battery to full drain because it ruins the plates inside the battery.

Watts = volts x amps.
If you have 12 volts panels, you would charge at 8 amps with a 100 watt panel. This is a good charge rate. Any more than this and you risk warping the plates with too much heat.

How Much Pollution Is Created Using Solar Panels Systems?
Scenice Project, I Need Help

There should be no pollution at all created by solar panels themselves. The manufacturing of the solar panels like anything creates pollution depending on what is used to make the panels. If the solar system is hooked up to a bunch of liquid cell batteries, they can leak fumes but not really pollution.
