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 home owners to use the sun to power daily life: running your a/c, cleaning clothing, viewing TELEVISION, cooking supper. All while lowering your carbon footprint, and without burning fossil fuels or putting a pressure on the electrical grid. And while the ecological advantages of solar power are considerable, numerous property owners find that the benefit, distinct functions, and cost savings of owning a solar power system are a lot more enticing.

Top 10 Benefits of Solar Energy

Thanks to considerable electrical energy costs savings, the typical American property owner settles their photovoltaic panel system in seven to eight years and sees an ROI of 20 percent or more.

#3 Protect against rising energy expenses

One of the most clear cut benefits of photovoltaic panels is the capability to hedge utility rates. In the past 10 years, property electrical power prices have gone up by an average of 3 percent annually. By purchasing a solar energy system now, you can repair your electricity rate and secure versus unpredictable boosts in electricity costs. If you're a service or homeowner with changing capital, going solar likewise assists you better forecast and manage your expenses.

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

Many homeowners choose to fund their photovoltaic panels with among the "pay-as-you-go" funding choices. This suggests that a third-party business-- the solar company-- owns the planetary system and takes care of setup, maintenance, monitoring and repairs. You simply pay the solar supplier for electrical energy-- less than you would've paid the utility business.

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

#10. Solar is a Secure Investment

The energy companies are infamous for their changing and unreliable electrical power prices. There is plainly an upward trend.

With photovoltaic panels and basic math, we can calculate how much electricity will be produced, and most significantly, at what rate, for a minimum of the next Twenty Years (fixed energy expenses).

Frequently Asked Questions

How Much Does 1000 Square Feet Of Solar Panels Cost (Pool Heating)?
How Much Does 1000 Square Feet Of Solar Panels Cost? This Is For A Pool With Dimensions 75Ft By 25Ft? How Much Will It Cost Including Installation Fee And The Water Heater?

the expensive way is to have solar panels make electricity to run an electric heater.

the cheap way is to have panels heat the water directly.

that's a fairly large pool, but it should work.
probably not in Alaska in January.
but then, you're not going to generate any electricity there either.

Electricity From Solar Water Heater?
In My House, A Solar Water Heater Is Installed Similar To This Picture. Http://En.Wikipedia.Org/Wiki/Image:Solarboiler.Jpg Can This Panel Be Used To Generate Electricity With Some Modification, So That It Can Stored In Battery And Used To Power Electronic Items?

If you heat the water too much too produce an intense amount of steam, which when transferred to a turbine connected to a generator, will rotate it, you can produce electricity. But this is practically not possible with this solar water heater.

I think you are bit confused between Solar-cell panels and Solar water heater.
Both of these devices are completely different from each other. The only similarity is, that they work on solar energy.

Solar cells are made up of semi-conductor elements, which when kept in sunlight, produce electricity.
But on the other hand, Solar Water Heater is a device containing a common black coloured box, in which thin pipes carry water. This water, due to sunlight, get heated.

Even both the devices work on Solar Energy, but they are entirely different.

Does Anyone Know A Good Company To Buy Solar Panels From?
I'M A Carpenter, And Can Do Electric Work. I Want To Make Some Money Installing Solar Panels. What'S The Best Source?

Wow. This is a big question.
First, are you in the United States? If so, then I would look at a couple of web sites.

First, I would look at joining ASES - the American Solar Energy Society. (Actually, I'd do this whether or not you were in the US) Their magazine will have ads and directorys and so forth for panel manufacturers, inverter manufacturers, rack vendors, metering companies, etc. At the very least, their web site will give you numerous links to popular panel manufacturers.

Right now, it can be difficult to get panels in the US. My buying agent can't promise us a significant number of panels until at least late this coming fall. And prices are going up due to a silicon shortage at the moment. Still, you could probably get your hands on small quantities. You just might not be able to choose exactly which manufacturer you want.

Also, I'd look into getting NABCEP certification. This is the North American Board of Certified Energy Practitioners. They provide a referral service for people looking for solar installers, and they may have a net work of members that could help get you started.

Good luck!

I Am Entertaining The Thought Of Getting Solar Panels For My Home To Save Money.?
I Don'T Know If It'S Worth The Hassle Though.Can Someone With Solar Panels Please Tell Me If It'S Worth It.Thank You For Your Response.

As far as I know, unless you live in a location with a huge amount of consistent strong sunlight and typically use a fairly large amount of electricity the cost of purchase and installation could take up to twenty years to recoup in savings. Obviously you would have to sit down with a calculator and do the math for your own situation to figure out exactly how it would work for you. It shouldn't be hard to figure out a round about figure if you go over your bills and research the amount of energy that you can expect to generate in your location with whatever brand, style, size, etc of system your looking at. Do the math, but don't expect some crazy cost savings unless you live near the equator.

How Can I Encase Solar Panels For A Resonanle Price?
Acrylic Is To Expensive, Epoxy Clouds Over With Exposure To Light, Wood Swells, Warps, And Rots, Glass Cracks, Plexiglass I'M Pretty Sure Is Out Of The Question, And Metal Is Just Not Strong Enough, It Flexes Like Crazy. The Panel Is To Be Made With 3X6 Cells. So It'Ll Be Pretty Big. And Nobody Put Stuff About Global Warming Or I'Ll Give You Negative Feedback. The Hoax Has Gone Far Enough.

Do understand that it's generally not going to be a net savings making your own panel. To make something watertight, and resistant to weather for decades, and that will pass lots of sunlight, would cost more than to just buy a ready-made panel.

But the compromise might be to use ordinary 1/8" window glass, and seal it with some kind of UV-resistant roofing silicone. From time-to-time, I would re-check the seal to make sure it's still good. As for cracking, unless you're in an area that gets hail, I wouldn't worry.

For commercial panels, they use a tempered, low-iron glass that is tough, and also very transparent to the wavelengths that the solar cells use.
