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 a/c unit, cleaning clothes, viewing TELEVISION, cooking supper. All while decreasing your carbon footprint, and without burning fossil fuels or putting a strain on the electrical grid. And while the environmental benefits of solar power are substantial, numerous homeowners find that the benefit, special functions, and expense savings of owning a solar power system are a lot more alluring.

Top Ten Advantages of Solar Energy

#1 Considerably reduce or perhaps eliminate your electric costs

Whether you're a homeowner, organization, or nonprofit, electrical power costs can make up a large part of your monthly costs. With a solar panel system, you'll create complimentary power for your system's whole 25+ year lifecycle. Even if you do not produce One Hundred Percent of the energy you consume, solar will decrease your utility expenses and you'll still conserve a lot of cash.

#2 Make a great return on your investment

Solar panels aren't an expenditure-- they're one of the best methods to invest, with returns rivaling those of more standard investments like stocks and bonds. Thanks to significant electrical power bill savings, the typical American property owner pays off their solar panel system in seven to 8 years and sees an ROI of 20 percent or more.

#3 Safeguard versus rising energy expenses

Among the most clear cut benefits of solar panels is the capability to hedge utility costs. In the past 10 years, domestic electrical energy prices have gone up by approximately three percent each year. By investing in a solar energy system now, you can fix your electrical power rate and protect versus unpredictable increases in electrical energy expenses. If you're an organisation or homeowner with fluctuating cash circulation, going solar likewise assists you much better projection and manage your expenses.

#4 Boost your house value

Numerous research studies have actually discovered that homes equipped with solar energy systems have higher residential or commercial property values and sell more rapidly than non-solar houses. Appraisers are progressively taking solar setups into consideration as they value homes at the time of a sale, and as property buyers end up being more educated about solar, need 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 key part of achieving energy independence in the United States. By increasing our capacity to produce electrical energy from the sun, we can also insulate our country from price changes in worldwide energy markets.

#6 Develop jobs and assist your local economy

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

#7 Safeguard the environment

Solar is a terrific method to lower your carbon footprint. Structures are responsible for 38 percent of all carbon emissions in the U.S., and going solar can substantially reduce that number. A common property solar panel system will remove 3 to 4 heaps of carbon emissions each year-- the equivalent of planting over 100 trees annually.

#8 Demonstrate your commitment to sustainability

Sustainability and corporate social responsibility are essential components of an organization's culture and values. They likewise produce bottom line results. Progressively, customers and neighborhoods are acknowledging and rewarding companies that select to run responsibly. Companies are finding that "green" qualifications are a powerful driver of consumer acquiring choices, creating goodwill and improving service results.

#9 Start Saving from Day 1

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

Lots of homeowners opt to finance their photovoltaic panels with among the "pay-as-you-go" funding choices. This means that a third-party company-- the solar provider-- owns the planetary system and takes care of setup, maintenance, tracking and repairs. You simply pay the solar service provider for electrical energy-- less than you would've paid the utility business.

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

#10. Solar is a Secure Financial investment

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

With photovoltaic panels and easy math, we can calculate what does it cost? electrical energy will be generated, and most importantly, at what rate, for at least the next 20 years (repaired energy expenses).

Frequently Asked Questions

Why Is Solar Energy Important To Us?

ENERGY FROM THE SUN
The sun has produced energy for billions of years. Solar energy is the sun’s rays (solar radiation) that reach the earth.

Solar energy can be converted into other forms of energy, such as heat and electricity. In the 1830s, the British astronomer John Herschel used a solar thermal collector box (a device that absorbs sunlight to collect heat) to cook food during an expedition to Africa. Today, people use the sun's energy for lots of things.

Solar energy can be converted to thermal (or heat) energy and used to:

Heat water – for use in homes, buildings, or swimming pools.

Heat spaces – inside greenhouses, homes, and other buildings.

Solar energy can be converted to electricity in two ways:

Photovoltaic (PV devices) or “solar cells” – change sunlight directly into electricity. PV systems are often used in remote locations that are not connected to the electric grid. They are also used to power watches, calculators, and lighted road signs.

Solar Power Plants - indirectly generate electricity when the heat from solar thermal collectors is used to heat a fluid which produces steam that is used to power generator. Out of the 15 known solar electric generating units operating in the United States at the end of 2006, 10 of these are in California, and 5 in Arizona. No statistics are being collected on solar plants that produce less than 1 megawatt of electricity, so there may be smaller solar plants in a number of other states.

What Is Solar Energy,Light Energy, Electrical .Energy,Sound Energy,Chemical Energy,Nuclear Energy,Atomic Ene?

Solar Energy: All kind of energy (Wide range of EM Waves) coming out of Sun.

Light Energy: The EM Wave, which falls in visible range.

Electrical Energy: The electrical form (Batteries, Mains Power Supply, Lightening) of energy. I mean, where the energy is experienced due to flow of charges.

Sound Energy: A energy which lies within audible range (20-20kHz), and can travel freely in air.

Chemical Energy: A chemical process which can generate other usable form of energy.

Nuclear/Atomic Energy: A nuclear/atomic reaction process which can generate other usable form of energy.

Solar Energy?
Can Someone Explain How Solar Energy Works?

This is a actual explanation of how it works.

Photovoltaic Cells: Converting Photons to Electrons
The solar cells that you see on calculators and satellites are photovoltaic cells or modules (modules are simply a group of cells electrically connected and packaged in one frame). Photovoltaics, as the word implies (photo = light, voltaic = electricity), convert sunlight directly into electricity. Once used almost exclusively in space, photovoltaics are used more and more in less exotic ways. They could even power your house. How do these devices work?
Photovoltaic (PV) cells are made of special materials called semiconductors such as silicon, which is currently the most commonly used. Basically, when light strikes the cell, a certain portion of it is absorbed within the semiconductor material. This means that the energy of the absorbed light is transferred to the semiconductor. The energy knocks electrons loose, allowing them to flow freely. PV cells also all have one or more electric fields that act to force electrons freed by light absorption to flow in a certain direction. This flow of electrons is a current, and by placing metal contacts on the top and bottom of the PV cell, we can draw that current off to use externally. For example, the current can power a calculator. This current, together with the cell's voltage (which is a result of its built-in electric field or fields), defines the power (or wattage) that the solar cell can produce.

That's the basic process, but there's really much more to it. Let's take a deeper look into one example of a PV cell: the single-crystal silicon cell.

How Silicon Makes a Solar Cell
Silicon has some special chemical properties, especially in its crystalline form. An atom of silicon has 14 electrons, arranged in three different shells. The first two shells, those closest to the center, are completely full. The outer shell, however, is only half full, having only four electrons. A silicon atom will always look for ways to fill up its last shell (which would like to have eight electrons). To do this, it will share electrons with four of its neighbor silicon atoms. It's like every atom holds hands with its neighbors, except that in this case, each atom has four hands joined to four neighbors. That's what forms the crystalline structure, and that structure turns out to be important to this type of PV cell.
We've now described pure, crystalline silicon. Pure silicon is a poor conductor of electricity because none of its electrons are free to move about, as electrons are in good conductors such as copper. Instead, the electrons are all locked in the crystalline structure. The silicon in a solar cell is modified slightly so that it will work as a solar cell.

A solar cell has silicon with impurities -- other atoms mixed in with the silicon atoms, changing the way things work a bit. We usually think of impurities as something undesirable, but in our case, our cell wouldn't work without them. These impurities are actually put there on purpose. Consider silicon with an atom of phosphorous here and there, maybe one for every million silicon atoms. Phosphorous has five electrons in its outer shell, not four. It still bonds with its silicon neighbor atoms, but in a sense, the phosphorous has one electron that doesn't have anyone to hold hands with. It doesn't form part of a bond, but there is a positive proton in the phosphorous nucleus holding it in place.

When energy is added to pure silicon, for example in the form of heat, it can cause a few electrons to break free of their bonds and leave their atoms. A hole is left behind in each case. These electrons then wander randomly around the crystalline lattice looking for another hole to fall into. These electrons are called free carriers, and can carry electrical current. There are so few of them in pure silicon, however, that they aren't very useful. Our impure silicon with phosphorous atoms mixed in is a different story. It turns out that it takes a lot less energy to knock loose one of our "extra" phosphorous electrons because they aren't tied up in a bond -- their neighbors aren't holding them back. As a result, most of these electrons do break free, and we have a lot more free carriers than we would have in pure silicon. The process of adding impurities on purpose is called doping, and when doped with phosphorous, the resulting silicon is called N-type ("n" for negative) because of the prevalence of free electrons. N-type doped silicon is a much better conductor than pure silicon is.

Actually, only part of our solar cell is N-type. The other part is doped with boron, which has only three electrons in its outer shell instead of four, to become P-type silicon. Instead of having free electrons, P-type silicon ("p" for positive) has free holes. Holes really are just the absence of electrons, so they carry the opposite (positive) charge. They move around just like electrons do.

The interesting part starts when you put N-type silicon together with P-type silicon. Remember that every PV cell has at least one electric field. Without an electric field, the cell wouldn't work, and this field forms when the N-type and P-type silicon are in contact. Suddenly, the free electrons in the N side, which have been looking all over for holes to fall into, see all the free holes on the P side, and there's a mad rush to fill them in.
