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 utilize the sun to power daily life: running your a/c, cleaning clothes, enjoying TELEVISION, cooking supper. All while lowering your carbon footprint, and without burning fossil fuels or putting a stress on the electrical grid. And while the ecological benefits of solar power are considerable, lots of homeowners find that the convenience, unique features, and expense savings of owning a solar power system are even more alluring.

Leading Benefits of Solar Energy

#1 Significantly lower and even remove your electrical costs

Whether you're a house owner, business, or not-for-profit, electrical power expenses can make up a big part of your monthly costs. With a photovoltaic panel system, you'll generate totally free power for your system's whole 25+ year lifecycle. Even if you don't produce 100 percent of the energy you consume, solar will decrease your energy costs and you'll still save a great deal of loan.

#2 Make a terrific return on your investment

Solar panels aren't an expenditure-- they're one of the very best ways to invest, with returns matching those of more standard investments like stocks and bonds. Thanks to considerable electrical power bill 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 Protect versus increasing energy costs

One of the most clear cut advantages of solar panels is the ability to hedge energy prices. In the previous 10 years, residential electrical power rates have actually increased by an average of 3 percent yearly. By purchasing a solar energy system now, you can repair your electrical power rate and secure versus unforeseeable increases in electrical power costs. If you're a company or house owner with fluctuating capital, going solar likewise helps you much better projection and handle your costs.

#4 Increase your house value

Numerous studies have actually found that homes geared up with solar energy systems have higher property worths and offer more rapidly than non-solar homes. Appraisers are progressively taking solar setups into factor to consider as they value homes at the time of a sale, and as homebuyers end up being more informed about solar, demand for homes equipped with solar panel systems will continue to grow.

#5 Increase U.S. energy independence

The sun is a near-infinite source of energy and an essential component of achieving energy independence in the United States. By increasing our capacity to generate electrical energy from the sun, we can also insulate our nation from price fluctuations in global energy markets.

#6 Develop jobs and assist your local economy

Inning accordance with The Solar Structure, the solar industry added tasks at a rate nearly 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. Due to the fact that solar-related jobs have the tendency to be higher paying and can not be contracted out, they are a considerable factor to the United States economy.

#7 Protect the environment

Solar is a great way to minimize 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 common residential photovoltaic panel system will remove 3 to 4 loads of carbon emissions each year-- the equivalent of planting over 100 trees every year.

#8 Demonstrate your dedication to sustainability

Sustainability and business social responsibility are essential components of a company's culture and worths. They likewise produce bottom line results. Progressively, consumers and neighborhoods are recognizing and rewarding services that decide to run responsibly. Organisations are finding that "green" credentials are a powerful chauffeur of customer getting choices, developing goodwill and improving company results.

#9 Start Conserving 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.

Numerous homeowners select to finance their photovoltaic panels with among the "pay-as-you-go" funding choices. This suggests that a third-party business-- the solar provider-- owns the solar system and looks after setup, upkeep, tracking and repair works. You just pay the solar service provider for electricity-- less than you would've paid the utility company.

Since 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 fluctuating and unreliable electricity costs. There is clearly an upward pattern.

With photovoltaic panels and simple math, we can calculate just how much electrical energy will be produced, and most significantly, at what rate, for at least the next 20 years (repaired energy costs).

Frequently Asked Questions

What Size Solar Panel Would I Need To Run A Rotating Fan?
I Want To Put A Fan Outside For My Dogs This Summer And Have It Running During The Day. What Kind Of Solar Panel Should I Get And Are Those Carried In Stores Like Home Depot And Lowe'S?

you'll have to experiment. biggest mistake people make is having a panel that simply doesn't put out enough power to overcome the fan's friction. second-biggest mistake: thinking a 12v DC panel can drive a standard bedroom fan intended to run off 110v 60 Hz AC. no can do.

you must match the fan to the panel output, or use an inverter or similar device.

Solar Energy Help!!!?
Okay, For School, I Have To Find A Way Of Creating Energy Other Using Crude Oil So I Chose Solar Energy. My Questions Are: What Is Solar Energy? Why Should We Use It?

Solar energy converts our inexhaustible supply of sunlight into energy.

This is accomplished primarily through the use of either photovoltaics or solar reflection technologies. We should use it because it's a "green" energy source. It's essentially non-polluting, its "fuel" is 100% free, and until the Sun goes out, it will always be there.

(1) Solar photovoltaics (i.e. solar cells). These are thin pieces of carefully designed silicon with a proper sequence of wire embedded in them, pressed between layers of opaque black plastic on the "back" side and transparent plastic on the "front" side A photon (a "piece" of light) comes in, and knocks an electron out of the silicon wafer. This electron shoots its way around a loop at near the speed of light, and ends up right back where it started. This creates an itty-bitty electrical current through electromagnetic induction. Now, you take that one electron and multiply it by billions of electrons -- you end up with a significant amount of energy.

(2) Solar reflection. A series of mirrors (flat, parabolic, etc.) controlled by a computer focus sunlight on a tower that contains a fluid medium and turbine. Now, we're not talking about water. We're talking about something like... sodium metal. But focusing enough energy on on this sodium metal turns it into liquid sodium, which moves with massive thermal and kinetic energy. This drives turbines through a series of heat exchangers (usually) that drive common induction turbines.

(3) I'll add this one, it isn't common, but it's real. They use long lines of continuous mirrors that have been bent to focus light on a pipe containing a fluid (generally water in this case). Heating the fluid causes it to expand, which causes it to move within the design. This fluid uses direct flow to spin turbine blades and create energy as with solar reflection induction turbines.

(4) Also... a 2-stroke Sterling generator is an old technology that powers what is essentially a solar-powered internal combustion engine. They're very inefficient, you'll never be driving around using one.

Every single energy source you'll ever, with the sole exception of "solar cells" uses a straight-up induction turbine like we've been using for over a century at this point. More advanced, but the exact same technology. Wind, solar reflection, wave, current, tidal, geothermal, hydroelectric, *nuclear*.... all use the same turbine technology. Only photovoltaics are different.

What Makes Solar Energy Green? Why Is It Good?

It produces no waste, no carbon dioxide, it's infinite (we aren't going to 'use up' the sun), and the source (the sun) is free.

Solar Energy - Science Help!?
Ok, So I Am Doing A Science Project On Solar Power And I Have Looked Everywhere For Answers To My Questions, But I Can'T Find Them In A Way I Understand! Here Are The Questions - What Is Solar Power? How Does It Produce Energy? What Energy Transformations Are Involved? Explain If This Energy Generation Is Non - Renewable Or Renewable? Why Is This Energy Generation Good/What Are Its Positives/Advantages? What Are The Negative Things About Solar Energy? Please Help Me!! :(

There are two kinds of solar energy photovoltaic and thermal (3 if you consider photosynthesis)
Photovoltaic converts light directly into electricity (solar panels) thermal works by using concentrated suns energy to heat a substance and transform it into a gas which drives a turbine/generator.
Photovoltaic, heat energy and chemical energy (photosynthesis)
Yes it is renewable as long as we have a sun.
It is good because the sun is free.
It is bad because it is costly, not on demand (the sun doesn't always shine) and it uses up huge area's of land.

Where Does Energy Come From To Make Wind, Waves..?
I Know Waves Create The Wind, But Going Far Enough Back, Is Everything Moving On Earth Created By The Moon Pulling On The Earth??

Solar heating is the primary reason that mass in the atmosphere and hydrosphere moves. Most wave action in water is caused by the movement of wind over the surface of the water bodies, not the other way around.
