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 utilize the sun to power daily life: running your air conditioner, washing clothing, enjoying TV, cooking supper. All while reducing your carbon footprint, and without burning fossil fuels or putting a pressure on the electrical grid. And while the ecological advantages of solar power are substantial, numerous residents find that the benefit, unique functions, and cost savings of owning a solar power system are a lot more alluring.

Top Ten Advantages of Solar Energy

#1 Drastically reduce and even remove your electrical costs

Whether you're a house owner, business, or not-for-profit, electricity costs can comprise a large part of your regular monthly costs. With a solar panel system, you'll create complimentary power for your system's entire 25+ year lifecycle. Even if you don't produce 100 percent of the energy you take in, solar will reduce your energy bills and you'll still conserve a great deal of loan.

#2 Make a fantastic return on your financial investment

Solar panels aren't an expenditure-- they are among the finest methods to invest, with returns matching those of more conventional investments like stocks and bonds. Thanks to considerable electrical power costs cost savings, the average American house owner pays off their solar panel system in seven to 8 years and sees an ROI of 20 percent or more.

#3 Safeguard versus increasing energy costs

One of the most clear cut benefits of solar panels is the ability to hedge utility rates. In the previous ten years, domestic electricity prices have actually gone up by an average of three percent each year. By investing in a solar energy system now, you can fix your electrical power rate and secure versus unforeseeable boosts in electrical energy costs. If you're a business or house owner with rising and falling cash flow, going solar likewise assists you better projection and handle your costs.

#4 Increase your home value

Several research studies have discovered that homes geared up with solar energy systems have greater property worths and offer quicker than non-solar houses. Appraisers are progressively taking solar installations into factor to consider as they value homes at the time of a sale, and as homebuyers end up being more educated about solar, need 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 a crucial part of achieving energy self-reliance in the United States. By increasing our capacity to generate electrical power from the sun, we can also insulate our nation from cost variations in worldwide energy markets.

#6 Develop jobs and assist your local economy

Inning accordance with The Solar Foundation, the solar market added tasks at a rate nearly 12 times faster than the general U.S. economy in 2015, representing 1.2 percent of all jobs in the nation. This growth is expected to continue. Because solar-related jobs have the tendency to be higher paying and can not be outsourced, they are a significant contributor to the United States economy.

#7 Protect the environment

Solar is a great way to decrease your carbon footprint. Buildings are accountable for 38 percent of all carbon emissions in the U.S., and going solar can considerably reduce that number. A typical property photovoltaic panel system will get rid of three to four lots of carbon emissions each year-- the equivalent of planting over 100 trees each year.

#8 Demonstrate your dedication to sustainability

Sustainability and business social obligation are crucial components of a company's culture and values. They likewise produce bottom line results. Significantly, consumers and neighborhoods are acknowledging and rewarding organisations that pick to operate responsibly. Organisations are discovering that "green" qualifications are a powerful motorist of customer purchasing decisions, creating goodwill and improving organisation outcomes.

#9 Start Conserving from Day 1

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

Numerous property owners decide to finance their photovoltaic panels with one of the "pay-as-you-go" funding options. This indicates that a third-party business-- the solar service provider-- owns the solar system and takes care of installation, maintenance, tracking and repair works. You simply pay the solar service provider for electricity-- less than you would've paid the utility company.

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 energy companies are notorious for their fluctuating and undependable electricity costs. There is clearly an upward trend.

With photovoltaic panels and simple math, we can calculate how much electrical energy will be created, and most importantly, at exactly what cost, for at least the next Twenty Years (fixed energy expenses).

Frequently Asked Questions

Solar Panels, When Does It Work (Winter&Summer)?
Does A Solar Panel Work During The Winter? Or When Its Cold? Does It Produce Power Mainly From The Sun Or Also From Heat? So If Its In The Middle Of December, Snow Is Everywhere But The Sun Is Shining, Would A Solar Panel Still Be Able To Produce Power? And Finally Would It Be Possible To Put A Lot Of Panels Out In The Desert And Wire Them Into The City? So It Would Bring Electricity From The Desert Many Miles To A Building/House In The City.

It works only from direct sunlight. Yes, it can produce power in the winter, if the panel is in the direct sunlight.

There are racks of panels already in the desert, and yes, the electricity can be pumped to the city.

There was an article 6-12 months ago in Scientific American about this, where the authors proposed a 20 year $40 billion plan to do just that on a large scale.

.

Solar Charging?
What Would Happen If I Hooked Up A 6V 70 Milliamp Solar Panel To 4 Rechargeable 1.2V Each 90Ma Aa Batteries?

A 6 volt solar panel would charge the batteries from dead to 6 volts in approximately 3 hours. It will start charging at 70 milliamps, but as the battery voltage increases the current will decrease. When the voltage of the batteries reaches the voltage of the solar panel no more current will flow.

However, most 6 volt solar panels deliver more than 6 volts, so it could cook your batteries if left too long. You would need a voltmeter to monitor the progress.

If the batteries are rechargeable type, they are not supposed to reach 1.5 volts each, more like 1.35 volts. Four in series should be 5.4 volts. So the 6 volt panel would definitely cook them if you left it too long.

Why Do We Not Put Solar Panels On Cars?
If We Can Put Them On Everything Else And They Save Power And Run Things For Days, Why Do We Not Put Them On Cars?

For practical reasons.

1. Solar panels are expensive and fragile.
2. Most cars have limited flat areas where these can be placed.
3. Attaching these to cars is alien to current auto production methods.
4. They are not cost effective yet in terms of the cost-benefit trade-off.
They only produce a tiny amount of current which can only help recharge a battery.

you need a much larger area of PV solar cells to generate enough current to actually drive an electric motor so the only function of a solar cell on a car today is to provide a trickle charge to a battery. What would you be willing to pay to have a trickle charger installed on your car?

Probably a lot less than a big solar panel costs. They add some value to electric cars, but the technology isn't practical for much on vehicles yet. you'd have to have a car shaped like a giant pancake to be able to get enough solar panels on it to have enough power for even a small electric motor.

Has Anybody Used A Solar Panel To Charge An Ipod?
I Want To Know If I Can Use The White Cable That Comes With The Ipod To Connect It To A Solar Panel And Charge My Ipod

Well it is possible and I am sure people have done it before. Only problem that I can see with this is to prevent power surges to your ipod. Also if you do construct one of these make sure to MATCH UP THE VOLTAGES~
If you don't there is a potential(no pun intended) to do some big damage to your ipod.
Try to look up some circuits used for solar panels to prevent these surges.

Here is someone who has done it before:
http://www.reuk.co.uk/Solar-iPod-Charger...
It is a really simple circuit that uses a 6 volt solar panel and a voltage regulator to get it down to 5 volts.
Google:
"diy ipod solar charger"
for more info.

Also to improve on your design, I would KEEP the original ipod cable AS IS and use a femal usb port in the circuit. That way you can use this solar charger for any usb device.

Why waste a perfectly good over priced IPOD cable?

H2 As An Alternative Fuel Source Using Solar Panels?
How About Using Solar Panals To Provide The Electrical Power To Separate The H2 From The O? H2 Would Be Fed Into The Engines Carburator Like A Gas/Air Mixture Ratio, But H2/Air Mixture Ratio Instead. How Would You Control The Exact Measurements?

Currently solar panels are rated at about 15 percent efficiency. That means that about 85 percent of the solar energy that is falling on it, is wasted. Electrolysis is also about 67 percent efficient. So the TOTAL amount of solar energy you would have "converted" into hydrogen is 67 percent of 15 percent.

Using my calculator that comes out to: about 10 percent total efficiency. About 90 percent of your solar energy gets wasted in the process. A better alternative to solar panels would be solar powered sterling generators.

Sterling engines are EXTERNAL COMBUSTION engines, like the old fashioned steam engine, and can be run off any heat source - including the sun. Heat from the sun is focused using parabolic mirrors, and the efficiency of a sterling engine / generator combination is rated at about 30 percent. Your TOTAL efficiency - both solar sterling and electrolysis combined - would be around 20 percent.

If you are dead set on using hydrogen? Even though there are better alternatives? Such as alcohol? Then I would suggest storing it in titanium dioxide pellets. This way you can store the hydrogen, without it being in danger of exploding. You can ALSO ram a hydrogen container like this into a solid brick wall. Once again? Without fear of an explosion.

Numerous studies have been conducted on this.

As for controlling the exact measurements? Nothing in the air-fuel ratio of a car - - or the timing - which you are also going to have to change - needs to be exact. A "good enough" approximation will do. As for how you get your measurements? You need to compare the density of gasoline vapor with hydrogen gas. A comparison of the molecular weight of gasoline - - as compared to the molecular weight of hydrogen - should get you started in the right direction for this.
