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 homeowner to use the sun to power daily life: running your a/c, cleaning clothes, watching TELEVISION, cooking dinner. All while lowering your carbon footprint, and without burning fossil fuels or putting a stress on the electrical grid. And while the ecological advantages of solar power are considerable, numerous home owners find that the convenience, special functions, and cost savings of owning a solar power system are a lot more alluring.

Top Ten Benefits of Solar Energy

#1 Drastically minimize or perhaps remove your electric expenses

Whether you're a homeowner, company, or not-for-profit, electricity expenses can make up a big portion of your month-to-month expenditures. With a photovoltaic panel system, you'll create free power for your system's entire 25+ year lifecycle. Even if you do not produce 100 percent of the energy you consume, solar will lower your utility expenses and you'll still save a great deal of cash.

#2 Earn a terrific return on your investment

Photovoltaic panels aren't an expense-- they're one of the best methods to invest, with returns matching those of more conventional financial investments like stocks and bonds. Thanks to significant electricity bill cost savings, the typical American house owner pays off their photovoltaic panel system in 7 to eight years and sees an ROI of 20 percent or more.

#3 Secure versus increasing energy costs

One of the most clear cut benefits of photovoltaic panels is the capability to hedge utility costs. In the past ten years, domestic electrical power costs have actually increased by approximately three percent yearly. By purchasing a solar energy system now, you can repair your electrical power rate and safeguard versus unpredictable increases in electrical energy costs. If you're a business or house owner with changing capital, going solar likewise helps you much better forecast and manage your costs.

#4 Boost your home or business value

Numerous research studies have actually discovered that houses geared up with solar energy systems have higher home worths and sell faster than non-solar homes. Appraisers are increasingly taking solar setups into factor to consider as they value houses at the time of a sale, and as homebuyers become more educated about solar, demand for residential or commercial properties geared up with solar panel systems will continue to grow.

#5 Boost U.S. energy independence

The sun is a near-infinite source of energy and an essential part of accomplishing energy independence in the United States. By increasing our capacity to generate electrical energy from the sun, we can also insulate our country from price changes in international energy markets.

#6 Create jobs and assist your local economy

According to The Solar Foundation, the solar industry included tasks at a rate almost 12 times faster than the general U.S. economy in 2015, representing 1.2 percent of all tasks in the nation. This development is expected to continue. Since solar-related tasks tend to be higher paying and can not be outsourced, they are a significant contributor to the U.S. economy.

#7 Protect the environment

Solar is an excellent way to reduce your carbon footprint. Buildings are accountable for 38 percent of all carbon emissions in the U.S., and going solar can considerably decrease that number. A common residential photovoltaic panel system will remove three to four heaps of carbon emissions each year-- the equivalent of planting over 100 trees every year.

#8 Demonstrate your commitment to sustainability

Sustainability and business social responsibility are necessary parts of a company's culture and values. They likewise produce bottom line outcomes. Significantly, customers and neighborhoods are recognizing and rewarding services that decide to operate properly. Services are discovering that "green" qualifications are a powerful driver of customer acquiring decisions, developing goodwill and improving business 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 cash down.

Lots of house owners choose to finance their photovoltaic panels with among the "pay-as-you-go" financing options. This means that a third-party company-- the solar provider-- owns the solar system and looks after setup, maintenance, tracking and repairs. You just pay the solar company for electricity-- less than you would've paid the energy company.

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

#10. Solar is a Secure Investment

The utility business are well-known for their varying and undependable electrical power prices. There is plainly an upward pattern.

With solar panels and basic math, we can compute just how much electricity will be generated, and most significantly, at exactly what price, for a minimum of the next Twenty Years (repaired energy costs).

Frequently Asked Questions

What Are Some Good Things About Nuclear Energy?
Im Doing A Group Debate Tomorrow, About Why You Should Use Nuclear Energy As Opposed To Fossil Fuels, Hydroelectric, And Solar Energy. I Will Be Presenting Our Opening Statement, And Any Good Things To Include Would Be A Great Help.

Fossil fuels always release more pollutants, including CO2 if you consider that a pollutant. Hydroelectric electricity has limited availability, and it's a resource that is pretty much tapped out - every river which can be dammed for electricity already is. Solar energy is expensive, far more expensive than anything else. There is a lot of variation is solar panels, but it often involves rare earth elements, which limits the total numbers of panels which could be produced (at a number too low to matter). Solar energy is also not very energy dense. The total land it would take to capture the same amount of energy using solar as can be generated using nuclear is tremendous. States worth of land. Unlike oil, we have a lot of uranium locally, and the other nation with big resources is Australia who we're on pretty good terms with. And if we had some modern reactors, there would be much less nuclear waste produced. In fact, some of the new plants can eat material which was previously considered waste.

Is It Possible To Combine Solar And Geothermal Energy For Residence In The State Of Maryland?
What About Creating A Hybrid Of Solar, Geothermal, Wind Energy?

I have both solar electric and solar hot water panels and they are awesome. You can get a wind map to see if you are in the right area for a turbine. I don't know a lot about geothermal. Consult the green companies in your area and make sure they all know about your plans in completion so there is no overlapping. It will be expensive! Good luck.

Solar Energy?
We Have To Conduct An Experiment Regarding Conversion Of Energy...It Involves Converting Solar Energy To Electrical Energy...We Were Given Solar Plats...How The Experiment Could Be Conducted And What Could Be The Reasonable Variables??

Solar panels are semiconductor devices that sensitive to electromagnetic radiation. The amount of energy harvested will be proportional to the incident solar radiation. The incident flux will depend upon the time of day, angle of elevation of the panel, the direction of the panel, and shade from clouds or vegetation. The sensitivity of the device will depend upon the temperature and wavelength. There are too many variables to control everything outside of a lab environment, so I would advise working with those that you can control - specifically the direction and angle of elevation of the panels. These can be calculated based on your latitude, but it may be interesting to discover the optimal values for your location by experiment. Good luck.

What Are The Democratic And Republican Views On Solar Energy?
What Are The Democratic And Republican Views On Solar Energy? What Are The Views, And How Do They Affect America? I Need Both Sides, Democratic, And Reublican Views

In reality - Solar Farms are not practical or cost effective - YET!
They need to be subsidized by government. Solar panels only have a 10-20 year life.
When solar panels go below the 8 cent per watt cost - then they will be more cost effective.

Some Democrats don't want their development or wind Farms.
http://www.nytimes.com/2009/12/22/busine...
"AMBOY, Calif. — Senator Dianne Feinstein introduced legislation in Congress on Monday to protect a million acres of the Mojave Desert in California by scuttling some 13 big solar plants and wind farms planned for the region." - - Plus the Kennedy's stopped a wind farm in Massachusetts.

Sustainable Energy...?
What Else Is There Besides Wind, Solar, Geothermal, Tidal, Hydro Is There Any Else???

Biomass
Nuclear

NB: by definition Sustainable Energy is the provision of energy such that it meets the needs of the present without compromising the ability of future generations to meet their needs.
