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 conditioner, washing clothes, enjoying TV, cooking supper. All while reducing your carbon footprint, and without burning nonrenewable fuel sources or putting a strain on the electrical grid. And while the ecological advantages of solar power are significant, numerous residents discover that the benefit, distinct features, and expense savings of owning a solar power system are much more alluring.

Leading Advantages of Solar Energy

#1 Dramatically reduce or perhaps remove your electrical expenses

Whether you're a house owner, business, or nonprofit, electrical power expenses can make up a big part of your month-to-month costs. With a photovoltaic panel system, you'll generate free power for your system's whole 25+ year lifecycle. Even if you don't 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 Make an excellent return on your investment

Solar panels aren't a cost-- they are among the finest ways to invest, with returns equaling those of more traditional investments like stocks and bonds. Thanks to considerable electricity costs savings, the typical American homeowner pays off their photovoltaic panel system in 7 to eight years and sees an ROI of 20 percent or more.

#3 Protect against increasing energy costs

Among the most clear cut benefits of photovoltaic panels is the ability to hedge utility costs. In the previous 10 years, residential electrical power costs have actually increased by an average of three percent every year. By investing in a solar energy system now, you can repair your electricity rate and protect versus unforeseeable increases in electrical power costs. If you're a service or homeowner with fluctuating cash circulation, going solar also helps you better projection and handle your expenses.

#4 Increase your house value

Numerous research studies have actually found that homes geared up with solar energy systems have greater home values and offer faster than non-solar houses. Appraisers are significantly taking solar setups into factor to consider as they value homes at the time of a sale, and as property buyers end up being more informed about solar, need for properties geared up with photovoltaic panel systems will continue to grow.

#5 Increase U.S. energy self-reliance

The sun is a near-infinite source of energy and an essential element of accomplishing energy self-reliance in the United States. By increasing our capacity to generate electricity from the sun, we can likewise insulate our nation from price fluctuations in international energy markets.

#6 Develop jobs and assist your regional economy

Inning accordance with The Solar Foundation, the solar market added jobs at a rate almost 12 times faster than the total U.S. economy in 2015, representing 1.2 percent of all jobs in the country. This growth is anticipated to continue. Since solar-related tasks have the tendency to be greater paying and can not be outsourced, they are a considerable factor to the U.S. economy.

#7 Protect the environment

Solar is a great way to minimize your carbon footprint. Buildings are accountable for 38 percent of all carbon emissions in the United States, and going solar can considerably decrease that number. A common domestic photovoltaic panel system will eliminate 3 to 4 loads 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 very important elements of a company's culture and values. They also produce bottom line outcomes. Increasingly, customers and communities are recognizing and rewarding businesses that opt to operate responsibly. Companies are discovering that "green" credentials are an effective motorist of customer buying choices, creating goodwill and improving business results.

#9 Start Saving from Day 1

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

Numerous house owners opt to fund their photovoltaic panels with one of the "pay-as-you-go" funding choices. This means that a third-party company-- the solar company-- owns the planetary system and takes care of installation, upkeep, tracking and repairs. You just pay the solar service provider for electrical energy-- less than you would've paid the energy company.

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

#10. Solar is a Secure Financial investment

The utility business are infamous for their varying and undependable electricity costs. There is clearly an upward pattern.

With solar panels and easy mathematics, we can calculate just how much electricity will be created, and most notably, at what price, for at least the next Twenty Years (repaired energy costs).

Frequently Asked Questions

How Can I Convert Solar Energy To Mechanical Energy?

Stirling engine. Here's an excellent description of the history and mechanics of a stirling engine, as well as a low cost solar one to buy as a display. http://www.ecrater.com/product.php?pid=4...

In a nutshell, a difference of two temperatures causes the engine to turn. You can concentrate the sun onto a spot on the stirling engine to generate heat for it to move.

How Do I Cost-Effectively Use Solar Energy To Provide Light At Night?
I Am Moving To Sierra Leone, The Poorest Country In The World. There Will Be No Electricity Where I Will Be. If I Buy A 12V Solar Charger And A 12V (We'Ll Say Flourescent) Light Capable Of Creating As Many Lumens As A 60W Light Bulb, How Many Hours Of Light Can I Provide Each Night (Assuming 14 Hours Of Sunlight)? Any Additional Suggestions For Off The Grid Power Are Very Welcome.

You need the wattage of the bulb to determine the draw, then a solar charger big enough to replace the power used.

Ok...let's make some guesses and assumptions.
A 12v DC flourescent that puts out as many lumens as a 60W will draw about 15watts.
Watts / Volts= Amps, so 15/12=1.25 amps.
Ok...now the battery is not so much the problem, because a typical deep cycle battery, if fully charged will give you that 1.25 amps long enough to go a couple full nights without sunshine during the day.
The problem is the solar charger...you need someting big enough to replace the 1.25 amps you are drawing, plus something for loss of efficiency.
Here is an example of an available product that might fit your needs. http://store.sundancesolar.com/10watsols...
This panel will give you 18.7V at .62amps, so in rough numbers...you would get one hour of light run-time for every 2 hours of solar charge time.

You can get some pretty nice "starter" units that have battery; chargers and inverters included...this system to less than $400, and you could live like royalty...in Sierra Leone, anyway.

What Kind Of Battery Do I Use For A Solar Powered Heating Device?
I'M Making A Solar Powered Heating Device Which Consists Of A Solar Panel Connecting To A Battery Of Some Sort By Wires. The Solar Panel'S Heat Is Turned Into Energy And Stored Into The Battery, But At The Same Time The Battery Is Connected To Another Set Of Wires Which Lead To A Metal Disk Which Is Where The Heat Comes From. I Would Like To Know What Kind Of Battery Is Like That, That Can Be Connected By 2 Sets (2 Wires On Each Set, Positive And Negative) And Have Energy Stored In It And Be Transferring The Energy At The Same Time It Is Being Stored. This Way So That You Can Use The Heating Device At Night Time. So Which Battery Do I Use And Where Can I Buy It? Online Stores Are Fine As Well. Thanks!

What you suggest is not a commonly done thing. By the time you store solar energy in a battery, and get it out again as heat, you may have thrown away 95% of the energy. Also, heating applications take a lot of energy, so if I had (say) a 200-watt panel, I would not expect to do more than warm a cup of coffee for a few minutes with it.

To answer your question about batteries, the standard battery used for storing off-grid electricity is lead-acid, AGM type if you can afford it. If cost efficiency is not important, you can get lithium oxide batteries that are intended for electric bicycle use. A 0.3 kWh battery of that type costs about $500, 10x what a lead acid would cost, but it will be smaller, lighter, and you can drain it flat without harming it. You can find such batteries by Googling "electric bike battery."

If your goal is to store solar heat, it would be cheaper to have a very large collector, heat water, and pump it into a large, well-insulated tank.

Why Are The People In Hot Climatesnot Provided With Handy Cost Effective Solar Energy Tools And Electricity/?
Hydro Projects Lead To Depletion Of Natural Resources ,The Need Is To Popularize Solar Energy, As The Telecom Sector Has Shown Aggresive Drive Creates Demand Makes Technology Cheapand Affordable ,Similar Drive Is Essential For Saving Our Resources And Making A Bright Lighted World

"Not provided"??????

Are you saying that people in hot climates can't take care of themselves?

"handy cost effective solar energy tools and electricity/? "

Do you think "people in hot climates" are retarded or something? If it WERE cost effective don't you think they would already have them??

Maybe "solar energy tools" are NOT cost effective and THEY know it, but YOU obviously don't.

How Can You Harvest Wind Energy (Like The Kind In Windmills) When There Is No Wind ?
Kinda Like How Solar Panels Harvest Energy And Use It When There Is No Sunlight.

It depend on where you live. 1/2 of this country is desert or plains. That means that either the sun is shining or the wind is blowing...usually both at once. Here in Arizona and most of the southwest the sun shines AND the wind blows almost everyday....certainly enough days..about 350 of them to make wind and solar a viable option for most power generation. With the proper investment and the application of even current technology 85% of ALL the electrical needs of half the United States could be met without burning an ounce of coal and at a lower cost and without the dangers of nuclear energy. A good portion of the rest of the country could also generate a substantial portion of their needs the same way. Only the coal mafia and the nuclear industry are against moving forward into the 21st century....they have a cash cow to protect and they will protect it at all costs. It's all about their profits, none of it about the future of our country...and that's why we continuously get propaganda as in this 'question'. How sad is that?
