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 clothes, watching 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 ecological advantages of solar power are considerable, many home owners find that the convenience, distinct functions, and cost savings of owning a solar power system are much more enticing.

Leading Advantages of Solar Energy

#1 Dramatically decrease or even remove your electrical bills

Whether you're a homeowner, organization, or not-for-profit, electrical energy costs can comprise a large part of your regular monthly expenses. With a solar panel system, you'll produce complimentary power for your system's whole 25+ year lifecycle. Even if you do not produce 100 percent of the energy you take in, solar will lower your utility expenses and you'll still save a great deal of money.

#2 Earn a terrific return on your financial investment

Photovoltaic panels aren't a cost-- they're one of the very best methods to invest, with returns measuring up to those of more traditional investments like stocks and bonds. Thanks to considerable electrical energy costs savings, the average American homeowner settles their photovoltaic panel system in 7 to eight years and sees an ROI of 20 percent or more.

#3 Secure versus rising energy expenses

Among the most clear cut advantages of solar panels is the capability to hedge energy rates. In the previous 10 years, domestic electricity prices have actually gone up by an average of 3 percent annually. By investing in a solar energy system now, you can repair your electrical power rate and safeguard versus unpredictable increases in electrical energy costs. If you're a company or property owner with rising and falling capital, going solar likewise helps you better projection and manage your costs.

#4 Boost your home worth

Numerous research studies have actually discovered that homes equipped with solar energy systems have higher home worths and sell more rapidly than non-solar homes. Appraisers are progressively taking solar installations into consideration as they value homes at the time of a sale, and as homebuyers become more informed about solar, demand for homes equipped with photovoltaic panel systems will continue to grow.

#5 Increase U.S. energy independence

The sun is a near-infinite source of energy and a key part of attaining energy self-reliance in the United States. By increasing our capacity to create electrical power from the sun, we can likewise insulate our nation from rate changes in international energy markets.

#6 Develop jobs and assist your local economy

According to The Solar Foundation, the solar industry included tasks at a rate nearly 12 times faster than the overall U.S. economy in 2015, representing 1.2 percent of all jobs in the country. This development is expected to continue. Due to the fact that solar-related jobs tend to be higher paying and can not be contracted out, they are a substantial factor to the U.S. economy.

#7 Secure the environment

Solar is a terrific way to reduce 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 typical domestic photovoltaic 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 commitment to sustainability

Sustainability and corporate social responsibility are important elements of an organization's culture and values. They likewise produce bottom line results. Increasingly, consumers and communities are recognizing and rewarding services that decide to run properly. Services are discovering that "green" credentials are an effective driver of customer purchasing decisions, producing goodwill and improving company results.

#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 cash down.

Lots of house owners pick to finance their photovoltaic panels with among the "pay-as-you-go" financing options. This means that a third-party business-- the solar company-- owns the planetary system and takes care of installation, upkeep, monitoring and repair works. You just pay the solar company for electricity-- 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 Financial investment

The energy companies are well-known for their fluctuating and unreliable electricity prices. There is clearly an upward pattern.

With photovoltaic panels and easy mathematics, we can compute just how much electrical energy will be created, and most significantly, at exactly what price, for at least the next Twenty Years (fixed energy expenses).

Frequently Asked Questions

How Does Solar Panels Work?
Just Curious.

Solar panels are built with light-sensitive panels. These panels "soak up" the energy from the sun's light. This energy is changed to electric power. This power is stored in batteries to use whenever / wherever it is needed.

Why Not Solar Panels On Vehicle Roofs?
Solar Energy Technology Is Improving All The Time. I Was Thinking About How Most Vehicles Spend Most Of Their Time Parked In The Sunlight Collecting Heat (In The Summer Anyway). So It Makes Sense To Me To Build Our Vehicles With Solar Panels On The Roof Where Sun Light Can Be Collected And Stored In The Battery, Especially Relevant For Electric And Hybrid Vehicles. Heck, If I Get Only 10 More Miles Added To My Electric Range In A Single Day, I Would Be Happy; It'S Totally Free! I Would Like To See This Happen. What Are Your Perspectives?

Sounds like a good idea! The weight really isn't a problem, solar panels can be very light: the active material is usually somewhere between a hundredth and a tenth of a millimetre (there are over 250 mm in one inch).

I guess it's probably a cost and style thing. Shaping the glass to fit on a car roof is probably more expensive, and maybe it's more vulnerable to cracking. If you got a 250 W panel on your roof, you'd probably get 1.2 kWh if you left it in the Sun for 8 hours/day. That's enough to drive about 4 miles.

Solar Electricity/Heating?
Need Answers From Those Who Know How To Generate Solar Electricity, From Interior Of Home, Into The Electric Panel So That Electric Company Buys What Is Not Used,And Or How To Use Solar To Charge Batteries To Store Energy For Non Sun Hours For Heating Our Home..Prefer Do It Yourselfers That Have Had Success. Thank You Very Much

you cannot generate electricity cheaper than you can buy in most cases. They only way a PV system is economical is if the state pays for more than 50% of the cost or the power rate is over $.30 kw-hr or a combination.

If you want the most efficient electric heater, you will need a geothermal electric heat pump. You could not afford solar panels to run a heat pump system as the running amps are HUGE. You would be grid tied and have to have a netting meter. You also could not afford the battery packs required to store the amps intermittently between when the heat pump is off and on.

I Have Two Arco M55 Solar Panels. What Do I Need To Connect To A 12Volt Bank Of Batteries.?
Do I Need Some Type Of Regulator When The Batteries Are Fully Charged.?? The Arco Panels Voltage Is Approx 17Vdc At 2.5 Amps, Should I Limited The Voltage To 14Vdc???. I Would Like To Connect Both Panels To Up To Five Batteries At One Time...???

You can buy "Solar Charger Regulators".
I don't.
These chargers limit the charging current to the batteries, so you do not get a full efficiency of the solar panel.
They disconnect the batteries from the user side (the bulbs you use) if the battery voltage goes below a certain level (i.e. below 8V for a 12V battery), so you cannot use all the power available in the batteries, even in emergency.
They introduce, at least, a 0.7V loss (diode forward voltage) between the panel and the battery.
If you have SEVERAL panels and a lot of batteries, use a controller as above.
If you only have one panel, insert a 5A trip fuse in line (in your case: twice the current of the panel), and a 10-20A diode in series between the panel and the batteries (Kathode side of the + of the battery, Anode side of the + of the panel).
Install a voltmeter across the battery.
The fuse will prevent any short or over-charge current.
The diode will prevent the battery to discharge into the panel at night if it is not already protected.
The voltmeter will allow you to "watch" the status.

Your thought of limiting the voltage is useless: should the battery be low, the panel will drop its voltage, limited by the max current.
Should the battery be fully charged and the solar panel at full efficiency, it will just try to charge the battery "more". A bit of bubbles may result, hence the voltmeter to watch over it.
If you want to limit the voltage to 14V, put a 14V Zener (14Vx2.5W!) in series with a resistor of, say, 17V-14V/2.5A or ~1 Ohm, 5W, in parallel with the panel.

Benefits Of Solar Panels?
I'Ve Been Reading Up On Solar Panels Because I Think In The Long Run This Would Be Beneficial In The Long Run. My Dad Had Looked Into It Before Passing And Had Said It Was Too Expensive. How Much Does It Range For Getting Them Placed On The Roof And How Exactly Does That Work? I Think I Remember Being Told That Pge Has Incentives And Could Possibly Even End Up Paying You For Having It? What Does Having Panels Cover? I Know Electricity But Does It Also Heat Things Up? Sorry I'M Kinda Dee Dee Dee On This Lol. Any And All Information Would Be Greatly Appreciated. If Anyone Has Solar Panels Can I Get Your Experiences With Them? Thanks!!

Would that be Portland General Electric? I used to live in Beaverton. I think technology has not progressed enough for solar electric panels to be a good deal in that area. Too many clouds. If you were over in Eastern Oregon, that would be clearer.

If you meant Pacific Gas and Electric, that's another story. It's a good deal in most places in California. PG&E only gives a trivial rebate on panels now, but that's ok. There's still a federal tax credit (you have to owe enough taxes to take full advantage of it), and PG&E will let you net-meter, meaning you get full retail value for the electricity that you displace from your own home. Will they pay you? I recall there was some talk of doing that, but it's not a good deal. If you oversize your system to generate an excess over the year, PG&E will only pay a pittance, if anything, for the overage.

Prices are now about half of what they were 5 years ago when we put our panels in. If you want to see what we did http://roderick.hostcell.net/solar/photo...

Water heating panels pay back well in our area of California. Your best move is to ask a solar company to look at your house and do an analysis.
