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 utilize the sun to power daily life: running your air conditioning unit, washing clothing, seeing TELEVISION, cooking dinner. All while minimizing your carbon footprint, and without burning nonrenewable fuel sources or putting a strain on the electrical grid. And while the ecological benefits of solar power are substantial, numerous homeowners find that the convenience, special features, and cost savings of owning a solar power system are much more attractive.

Top Ten Advantages of Solar Energy

#1 Significantly lower and even remove your electrical expenses

Whether you're a homeowner, service, or not-for-profit, electrical power expenses can comprise a big part of your monthly expenses. With a photovoltaic panel system, you'll create complimentary 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 decrease your energy costs and you'll still conserve a great deal of loan.

#2 Make a great return on your financial investment

Solar panels aren't a cost-- they are among the very best methods to invest, with returns rivaling those of more conventional financial investments like stocks and bonds. Thanks to substantial electricity bill cost savings, the typical American property owner settles their photovoltaic panel system in 7 to eight years and sees an ROI of 20 percent or more.

#3 Secure versus rising energy costs

Among the most clear cut advantages of photovoltaic panels is the capability to hedge energy prices. In the previous ten years, residential electricity prices have increased by approximately three percent each year. By investing in a solar energy system now, you can fix your electrical energy rate and protect versus unforeseeable boosts in electricity expenses. If you're a service or house owner with fluctuating money flow, going solar likewise helps you better projection and handle your expenses.

#4 Boost your home value

Several research studies have discovered that houses geared up with solar energy systems have greater residential or commercial property worths and offer more rapidly than non-solar homes. Appraisers are increasingly taking solar setups into consideration as they value houses at the time of a sale, and as homebuyers end up being more educated about solar, need for homes 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 part of accomplishing energy independence in the United States. By increasing our capability to create electricity from the sun, we can likewise insulate our country from price changes in global energy markets.

#6 Develop jobs and assist your regional economy

Inning accordance with The Solar Foundation, the solar industry added tasks at a rate almost 12 times faster than the overall U.S. economy in 2015, representing 1.2 percent of all tasks in the country. This development is expected to continue. Since solar-related jobs have the tendency to be higher paying and can not be contracted out, they are a significant contributor to the United States economy.

#7 Protect the environment

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

#8 Show your dedication to sustainability

Sustainability and business social obligation are necessary elements of a company's culture and values. They likewise produce bottom line outcomes. Significantly, consumers and neighborhoods are acknowledging and rewarding businesses that decide to run properly. Businesses are finding that "green" qualifications are a powerful driver of consumer getting choices, creating goodwill and enhancing business results.

#9 Start Saving 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.

Numerous homeowners decide to finance their solar panels with one of the "pay-as-you-go" funding choices. This implies that a third-party business-- the solar company-- owns the solar system and takes care of installation, upkeep, tracking and repair works. You just pay the solar company for electricity-- 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 Investment

The utility business are notorious for their fluctuating 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 created, and most significantly, at what rate, for at least the next Twenty Years (repaired energy expenses).

How Is Solar Energy Helpful?
I Need 4 Reasons Why Solar Energy Is Helpful

It is a non-polluting energy source because
1) It does not 'use up' resources such as oil, wood, coal etc.
2) It is quiet
3) Homes using solar energy spend less on utility bills and free up power for others
4) It has no harmful by-products from use such as nuclear or coal or oil
5) It does not destroy natural habitats such as dams, power lines or geothermal energy can
6) Solar technology provides jobs
Take your pick. Personally, I like that it is quiet

What Is Solar Energy?
I Know That It Is Energy From The Sun'S Rays, But What Else Is It?

Hai friend! Solar energy is the best energy in the world.This energy is the father of all energy sources.Without this nothing in the world will be possible.
Solar energy is produced due to chemical reactions that occurs in the sun
Solar energy is quite simply the energy produced directly by the sun and collected elsewhere, normally the Earth. The sun creates its energy through a thermonuclear process that converts about 650,000,0001 tons of hydrogen to helium every second. The process creates heat and electromagnetic radiation. The heat remains in the sun and is instrumental in maintaining the thermonuclear reaction. The electromagnetic radiation (including visible light, infra-red light, and ultra-violet radiation) streams out into space in all directions.

What Is The Cost Of Solar Energy Compared To Natural Gas?
I Heard Solar Energy Was About 1/4Th Of A Dollar While Natural Gas Was Only 1/10Th. Can Someone Fill Me In On This? (:

These are NOT comparable because they work differently. Natural gas used in home heating, hot water, stoves, dryers use gas as a DIRECT conversion of energy.

Solar- active thermal, is where panels collect the heat and exchange it in a storage tank to preheat hot water for heating and hot water.

Solar- passive, is where the sunlight comes into a space and heats it during the day

Solar- electric is where there are 2 conversions of energy. One is changing the sunlight into electricity; then storing this electricity and converting into alternating current to be used for your household.

Solar-Thermal- Large scale. There are several major installations of solar-thermal-electric, and solar- electric the produce enough electricity to feed into the national grid. The problem with all solar projects is they shut down at night! Gas is available 24/7.

The efficiency of the solar ---> electric in watts/hr is about 23%. A regular toaster requires 1800 watts to run, so you would need to have enough square foot coverage just to use your toaster.

What Are 3 Disadvantages And Advantages?
What Are 3 Disadvantages And Advantages Os Solar Hydroelectric And Thermal Energy

Solar advantages:
free and endless source of energy
clean
house/business can be off the grid = no $ to energy companies

disadvantages:
can be expensive one-time investment
storage technology needs work
cannot be used everywhere

Hydroelectric advantages:
clean
can provide electricity for a lot of people

disadvantages:
completely destroys downstream ecology
sediment buildup behind dams will eventually destroy them
Possibility of collapse/floods

I don't know much about thermal, but I do know that it is a renewable, free energy source and once the R & D brings about cheaper technology then it can be stored more efficiently. Hope this helps
