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.

"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 daily life: running your a/c, cleaning clothing, seeing TV, cooking dinner. All while minimizing your carbon footprint, and without burning nonrenewable fuel sources or putting a pressure on the electrical grid. And while the environmental benefits of solar power are substantial, numerous home owners find that the convenience, unique features, and cost savings of owning a solar power system are a lot more enticing.

Leading Advantages of Solar Energy

#1 Drastically reduce or perhaps remove your electrical costs

Whether you're a property owner, company, or not-for-profit, electricity costs can comprise a large part of your regular monthly costs. With a photovoltaic panel system, you'll produce totally free power for your system's entire 25+ year lifecycle. Even if you do not produce 100 percent of the energy you take in, solar will lower your energy costs and you'll still conserve a great deal of cash.

#2 Make an excellent return on your financial investment

Photovoltaic panels aren't an expenditure-- they are among the finest methods to invest, with returns measuring up to those of more conventional investments like stocks and bonds. Thanks to considerable electrical power bill cost savings, the typical American property owner pays off their solar panel system in 7 to eight years and sees an ROI of 20 percent or more.

#3 Protect versus increasing energy costs

One of the most clear cut benefits of solar panels is the ability to hedge utility prices. In the previous ten years, residential electricity prices have actually gone up by approximately three percent each year. By purchasing a solar energy system now, you can fix your electricity rate and protect against unpredictable increases in electrical energy expenses. If you're a business or property owner with rising and falling money flow, going solar also helps you better projection and handle your costs.

#4 Increase your house worth

Numerous research studies have actually discovered that homes geared up with solar energy systems have higher home values and offer more quickly than non-solar homes. Appraisers are significantly 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, need for homes equipped with photovoltaic panel systems will continue to grow.

#5 Boost U.S. energy self-reliance

The sun is a near-infinite source of energy and a crucial part of accomplishing energy independence in the United States. By increasing our capacity to create electrical power from the sun, we can likewise insulate our country from cost changes in international energy markets.

#6 Develop jobs and assist your local economy

According to The Solar Structure, the solar industry added tasks at a rate nearly 12 times faster than the total U.S. economy in 2015, representing 1.2 percent of all tasks in the nation. This growth is expected to continue. Since solar-related tasks tend to be higher paying and can not be outsourced, they are a considerable contributor to the United States economy.

#7 Safeguard the environment

Solar is a terrific method to decrease your carbon footprint. Structures are accountable for 38 percent of all carbon emissions in the United States, and going solar can considerably decrease that number. A common domestic photovoltaic panel system will eliminate 3 to four lots of carbon emissions each year-- the equivalent of planting over 100 trees every year.

Lots of homeowners decide to finance their photovoltaic panels with among the "pay-as-you-go" funding alternatives. This means that a third-party company-- the solar service provider-- owns the planetary system and takes care of setup, upkeep, monitoring and repair works. You just pay the solar supplier for electricity-- less than you would've paid the energy business.

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

#10. Solar is a Secure Investment

The utility business are well-known for their fluctuating and undependable electrical power costs. There is plainly an upward trend.

Frequently Asked Questions

With Is The Best Ratings For Solar Panels In Manufacturer For World?
Plse

The best PV solar panels are the ones I have just had installed. They were SunPower 333w panels which were approximately 1m x 1.6m each in size. There are only a few SP installers in the UK, but I used London Solar Energy who were recommended to me.. Great guys who did a great job.

Which Countries Have The Most Solar Panels?
Well Yea...

In 2007 the world produced 2826 MegaWatts of solar power. 47% of that was produced in Germany and 23% in Spain. (GO GERMANY). So that you have got something to compare that with: in 2010 the world will produce 1,759,000 MW of coal-fire power. There are some really interesting facts on these websites:

One answer suggest Australia. Unfortunately the Federal government let what would of been the worlds largest solar power plant project collapse. And only promised a 5% cut in emissions by 2020. Not happy Kevin.

What Is The Best Solar Panels To Power Your Home With?
I Need To Power A Refridgerator, And Some Smaller Items. I Don'T Plan To Operate An Ac Unit.

Any commercial-grade solar panel will do the trick. The bigger question is how much you need, and whether you need storage.

If you plan to go off-the-grid, you will need to design a large enough system to provide both for normal use and sufficient storage to carry you through periods of no sun - and overnight, of course.

The rule-of-thumb is approximately 3 x your peak load, with sufficient storage for a full 24 hours of no sun.

Assume your refrigerator uses an average of 800 watts per hour and operates for 8 hours per day (probably a bit high in both cases, but better to be cautious). Assume your total additional average load is also 800 watts - meaning _NO_ hair dryer, flat-screen television, heavy-duty vacuum cleaner, electric heater, clothes washer, dishwasher, electric stove, and so forth.

You will need a 5,000 watt system with 30,000 "watts" of storage. That is a pretty large bank of batteries as you might imagine.

Your approximate installed-cost will be something on the order of $40,000 - $60,000, or $8 - $12/watt depending on a lot of factors.

What Can A 1 Watt Solar Panel Power?
I'M Thinking Of Getting A Solar Panel For My House To Help Cut Back On Power Use (I Live In New Mexico). What Sort Of Appliances Can I Run On A 1 Watt Solar Panel? Is It Worth It To Get A Single Watt Panel Or Is It More Efficient To Get A Multi-Watt Panel?

New Mexico is a good area for solar.

Unfortunately, solar electric panels generally don't save money over grid electricity until the installed system is large - like, 1000 watts or more, 4000 watts being a common size. This costs many thousands of dollars up front, which hopefully are paid back over the years in electricity savings.

There are a couple other things to look into, though. The first is conservation and efficiency. If you can shade and insulate your house so that the air conditioner doesn't run so much, that can pay for itself in a year.

Also, NM is an excellent place for a solar water heater. Call a solar installer to see how much it would cost. That would pay back in a few years, with a much smaller investment than solar electric.

What Is The Best Brand Or Kind Of Solar Panels To Buy?

The ones that NASA uses in space are by far the best ones. But they have a very high price tag.

Or you can buy the cheaper stuff. I have seen some solar panels that only put out 5 watts but are bigger then a 24 watt panel.

Your best bet would be to stick with brands like Sharp, Sanyo, SunWize and a few other comon brands. They are standard brands because they are the standard. If you got the extra money you could buy the stuff nasa uses or maybe the cheapies you find at harbor freight if you have a lot of room.

It is up to you. toss your coin.
