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 a/c, washing clothing, enjoying TELEVISION, cooking dinner. All while decreasing your carbon footprint, and without burning fossil fuels or putting a pressure on the electrical grid. And while the environmental advantages of solar power are substantial, numerous property owners find that the benefit, distinct functions, and cost savings of owning a solar power system are much more enticing.

Top Ten Advantages of Solar Energy

#1 Considerably minimize and even remove your electric expenses

Whether you're a house owner, organization, or not-for-profit, electricity expenses can comprise a big portion of your month-to-month costs. With a solar 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 take in, solar will minimize your utility bills and you'll still conserve a lot of loan.

#2 Earn an excellent return on your investment

Photovoltaic panels aren't an expense-- they are among the finest methods to invest, with returns measuring up to those of more traditional investments like stocks and bonds. Thanks to substantial electricity expense savings, the average American property owner pays off their photovoltaic panel system in 7 to 8 years and sees an ROI of 20 percent or more.

#3 Secure versus increasing energy expenses

Among the most clear cut benefits of solar panels is the ability to hedge energy rates. In the previous 10 years, domestic electrical power rates have actually gone up by an average of 3 percent yearly. By investing in a solar energy system now, you can fix your electrical power rate and secure against unpredictable boosts in electricity expenses. If you're a service or property owner with fluctuating capital, going solar also assists you much better projection and handle your costs.

#4 Boost your property value

Numerous research studies have actually found that houses geared up with solar energy systems have higher property values and offer more rapidly than non-solar homes. Appraisers are progressively taking solar setups into consideration as they value houses at the time of a sale, and as property buyers end up being more educated about solar, demand for residential or commercial properties equipped with solar panel systems will continue to grow.

#5 Boost U.S. energy independence

The sun is a near-infinite source of energy and a crucial element of attaining energy self-reliance in the United States. By increasing our capability to create electrical power from the sun, we can likewise insulate our nation from cost variations in worldwide energy markets.

#6 Create jobs and help your local economy

According to The Solar Structure, the solar market 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 nation. This growth is expected to continue. Because solar-related jobs tend to be higher paying and can not be outsourced, they are a substantial factor to the U.S. economy.

#7 Protect the environment

Solar is a great method to lower your carbon footprint. Structures are responsible for 38 percent of all carbon emissions in the U.S., and going solar can considerably reduce that number. A normal property photovoltaic panel system will remove 3 to four lots of carbon emissions each year-- the equivalent of planting over 100 trees yearly.

#8 Demonstrate your dedication to sustainability

Sustainability and corporate social obligation are important components of a company's culture and worths. They likewise produce bottom line results. Progressively, customers and neighborhoods are recognizing and rewarding companies that opt to run responsibly. Businesses are finding that "green" qualifications are an effective motorist of customer buying choices, creating goodwill and improving organisation outcomes.

#9 Start Saving from Day 1

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

Lots of house owners select to finance their solar panels with among the "pay-as-you-go" funding alternatives. This implies that a third-party company-- the solar company-- owns the planetary system and looks after setup, upkeep, monitoring and repairs. You simply 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 infamous for their fluctuating and undependable electrical power costs. There is plainly an upward pattern.

With solar panels and simple mathematics, we can calculate what does it cost? electricity will be generated, and most significantly, at exactly what rate, for at least the next Twenty Years (fixed energy costs).

Frequently Asked Questions

Solar Hot Water Vs Tankless (Instant) Hot Water?
Which System Is Most Efficient And Economical?

Solar, depending on where you live, will typically augment your hot water supply and reduce the energy needed to supply hot water. It does take labor and materials to install, and it does eventually wear out, so there is a cost calculation to make.

A tankless water heater - which will not get water to the faucet any quicker than a tank water heater - is more efficient than a tank. But tankless water heater are expensive to install, which results in another cost calculation. Another consideration (to throw off all the above-mentioned cost calculations) is that a tankless water heater will outlast a tank, maybe by as much as twice.

I think, but cannot say with certainty, that solar has a better chance of paying for itself. A lot depends on where you live - the amount of sun you get and local labor and energy prices. There may also be local, state or federal rebates available.

There's some time & effort involved in figuring it out. The good news is that it's not impossible to figure out. Get some prices on installing a tankless water heater. The plumbers that install tankless water heaters in your area should be aware of any rebates. Then talk to solar contractors. Many will have software that can do the calcs for your location (they may lean towards the optimistic side of things). Then put it all together. You may wind up with both. Or neither.

Question On Relativism Vs Natural Law.. I Need Feedback From Proponents From These Two, As Well As Other Views?
My Ethics Teacher's Lesson On "Relativism Vs Natural Law" Was Not Only One-Sided(He Only Presented Arguements For Natural Law, And Arguements Against Relativsm), It Seems Like A False Dilemma To Present These To As The Only Viewpoints. What Are Other Philosophies On The Subject Of Ethics?

Firstly, the argument is somewhat specious. "Natural law" consists of those facts about the universe that are determinable by observation: the origin of the solar system, the laws of momentum and energy conservation and the like. The only thing that is "relativistic" about any of these is Einstein's theories. "Relativism" is usually used to define a source of moral codes; these cannot be determined from scientific data, so must be developed by societies based on experience. Which, of course, they are; moral codes derive from evolution, which applies to societies as well as to species: a society which adheres to a sound moral code will survive preferably to one that does no. Which means, in a sense, that all moral codes are relative. In particular, it should be absolutely clear that there is no such thing as an absolute morality, and Kant's (and subsequently, C S Lewis's) claims to the contrary are simply wrong.

Do We Get More Solar Or Thermal Energy From The Sun?
'Solar' Energy, Includes All Energy Emitted From The Sun, Even Thermal And Light. Yet I Suspect Most Of The Thermal Energy We Receive Is As The Result Of Insolation (No, I Didn'T Spell That Wrong. I Do Mean Insolation) Of Electromagnetic Radiation. So Do We Get More Electromagnetic Energy? Or More Raw Thermal Energy?

Thermal energy is from the absorption of electromagnetic radiation by surfaces, indeed thermal radiation is infrared light. I think you've misunderstood the meaning of the word insolation as it's merely all the energy a surface is exposed to. The only way to increase the energy absorbed would be to increase the surface area of direct energy being absorbed. Otherwise it's all a matter of how efficiently you access that energy. For example, an evacuated vacuum thermal power collector puts the solar collector in a vacuum so once it has absorbed the electromagnetic energy as heat, the heat can not escape through conduction or convection and any radiant heat is reflected by the glass shell holding the vacuum. Problem with EVT's are that they get broken by hail storms, etc. and they also leak so you have to replace them regularly. Photovoltaic panels only use one frequency of light because the solar cells are made of silicon which responds to only one frequency, more efficient solar cells can be made by combining different materials and also by finding materials that will absorb other frequencies and re-emit them in the frequencies that silicon likes.

The Energy Used To Charge The Batteries Of Electric Cars Come From?
A. Druids B. Power Plants ( Coal, Nuclear, Oil, Etc) C. They Don'T Need To Be Charged

The source of the power depends on where you live. In California, hydro+renewables create about 32%, nuclear is about 24% and natural gas is about 20%. Coal and other fossil fuels account for only about 2%.

The energy comes from PG&E power plants rather than smaller individual less efficient motors. The energy sources are already much cleaner than gasoline, and moving towards even cleaner and PG&E increases it's collection of solar power. In the future, many owners of electric cars will charge them primarily via solar panels on their own garage.

How Much Energy Does It Take To Boil Water?
(For School) I'M Designing A Tea Urn, Or Something Along Those Lines. I Need To Figure Out How Much Energy It Needs Because I'M Making It Solar Powered No Idea What I'M Doing =X

This would depend on the water temperature you start with.

A BTU is defined as the amount of heat required to raise the temperature of one pound of liquid water by one degree from 60° to 61°Fahrenheit at a constant pressure of one atmosphere.

1 watt is approximately 3.413 BTU/h
