"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

Many house owners opt to fund their photovoltaic panels with among the "pay-as-you-go" funding options. This suggests that a third-party company-- the solar supplier-- owns the solar system and takes care of setup, upkeep, monitoring and repairs. You just pay the solar supplier for electricity-- less than you would've paid the energy business.

Frequently Asked Questions

What Are Solar Panels?
And Would The Work For Mobile Homes

It's a device that somehow collects energy from the sun, probably through the form of heat, and converts it to electricity to be used.

I'm not sure if you'd be able to use them for mobile homes. I mean, maybe, but they're only like 5% efficient, so to really get good energy, you'd need a ton, and with a mobile home, you probably don't have the room for a ton of panels..

How Large Of A Solar Panel Is Needed To Power A Typical Home Central Air Unit?
I Would Like To Offset My Air Conditioning Bills By Purchasing A Solar Panel Setup. I Guess The Questions That Need Answered Are These: How Much Power Does A Central Air Unit Use? 220 Volts / 8 Amps Sound About Right? How Large Of A Solar Array Will I Need To Power This Non-Stop During Peak Daylight/Sunlight Hours?

If your state offers "New Metering" look into installing a grid-tie system. You won't need to rely on batteries storing the energy your panels produce and if you produce more energy than you consume one month the utility company will actually credit your account for that surplus. I would recommend Global Solar Center as a good starting point (http://www.globalsolarcenter.com/). They will provide you with a free solar quote and inform you of all the incentives you'll be eligible for, your estimated annual savings, payback period etc... They'll provide you with all the info you'll need to make a smart decision. Whether or not the system powers your entire central units consumption, at the end of the day you will be saving on your monthly utility bill. Your location will be a major factor as far as feasibility goes but you should definitely start by visiting that site.

How Much Solar Panel Would Be Needed To Power A Large House?
Can Anyone Estimate How Much Solar Panel Would Be Needed For A Fairly Large House And Maybe The Price As Well

There are a lot of factors to consider, like how much sun your area gets, how much energy your home consumes, etc.

I did a rough calculation yesterday that for my home, I would need to cover about one-fifth of my roof area with solar panels to provide most of my home energy needs. I have a 1,200 square foot home which consumes about 3,000 kWh per year of energy, and I live in a pretty sunny area (north-central California).

How Expensive Are Solar Panels?

Impact Of Solar Panels On Resale Value In Pennsylvania.?
We Live In Pa And Are Considering A Couple Of Solar Options -- Either A 3-Panel Hot Water System, Or A Full Solar System. How Would These Impact Our Home'S Resale Value? It'S A 4,000 Sq Ft Home In A 7-Year Old Development.

I'd recommend talking to a real estate agent. It could raise or lower your home's value. It could raise it from an energy saving standpoint. But it could also lower it from an eyesore standpoint. The one housing complex I was in wouldn't even allow solar panels on the houses from an eyesore standpoint. So first I would start off by checking with the housing development, they may have rules that you can't even put them on your house. Then I'd check with a real estate agent. If both say ok, then I'd put them where they are as non-visible as possible. You don't want them on the road side of the house. The road view is the selling view of the house and it is the first thing that people see when they drive up to your house when it is up for sale. First impressions are BIG. In a store, it is the for 0.5 seconds that sell a person on a product. If that carries over on houses, it means that can eliminate your house before they even enter the door.
