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 resident to use the sun to power daily life: running your ac system, washing clothing, enjoying TELEVISION, cooking supper. All while minimizing your carbon footprint, and without burning nonrenewable fuel sources or putting a pressure on the electrical grid. And while the ecological advantages of solar power are significant, lots of residents discover that the benefit, special functions, and cost savings of owning a solar power system are even more alluring.

Top 10 Advantages of Solar Energy

#1 Considerably lower or even remove your electrical expenses

Whether you're a homeowner, organization, or nonprofit, electrical power costs can comprise a large portion of your month-to-month expenses. With a photovoltaic panel system, you'll create free power for your system's whole 25+ year lifecycle. Even if you do not produce 100 percent of the energy you consume, solar will reduce your utility bills and you'll still conserve a great deal of cash.

#2 Earn an excellent return on your investment

Solar panels aren't an expense-- they are among the very best ways to invest, with returns equaling those of more standard financial investments like stocks and bonds. Thanks to substantial electrical power costs savings, the average American homeowner pays off their solar panel system in 7 to 8 years and sees an ROI of 20 percent or more.

#3 Protect versus rising energy costs

One of the most clear cut advantages of solar panels is the capability to hedge energy prices. In the previous ten years, property electrical power prices have actually increased by an average of 3 percent every year. By buying a solar energy system now, you can fix your electrical power rate and safeguard against unpredictable boosts in electrical power expenses. If you're a business or house owner with ever-changing capital, going solar likewise helps you much better projection and handle your costs.

#4 Boost your house worth

Multiple research studies have found that homes equipped with solar energy systems have higher home values and sell more quickly than non-solar homes. Appraisers are significantly taking solar setups into consideration as they value homes at the time of a sale, and as homebuyers become more educated about solar, need for homes geared up with solar panel systems will continue to grow.

#5 Boost U.S. energy self-reliance

The sun is a near-infinite source of energy and an essential component of attaining energy independence in the United States. By increasing our capacity to produce electrical power from the sun, we can likewise insulate our country from rate variations in international energy markets.

#6 Develop jobs and help your regional economy

According to The Solar Structure, the solar industry included 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 country. This development is expected to continue. Due to the fact that solar-related tasks have the tendency to be greater paying and can not be contracted out, they are a significant factor to the U.S. economy.

#7 Safeguard the environment

Solar is a great method to decrease your carbon footprint. Buildings are accountable for 38 percent of all carbon emissions in the United States, and going solar can considerably reduce that number. A common domestic 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 corporate social responsibility are very important elements of a company's culture and values. They also produce bottom line results. Progressively, customers and communities are recognizing and rewarding organisations that select to run properly. Businesses are finding that "green" qualifications are an effective driver of customer purchasing choices, producing goodwill and improving company outcomes.

#9 Start Conserving from Day 1

Solar purchase power agreements (PPAs) and solar leasing has actually made it possible for house owners to go solar for little or no money down.

Numerous house owners opt to fund their photovoltaic panels with one of the "pay-as-you-go" funding alternatives. This suggests that a third-party business-- the solar company-- owns the solar system and looks after setup, maintenance, tracking and repairs. You just pay the solar service provider for electrical energy-- 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 energy companies are well-known for their changing and unreliable electrical power rates. There is clearly an upward trend.

With solar panels and simple mathematics, we can compute what does it cost? electrical power will be generated, and most importantly, at exactly what rate, for a minimum of the next 20 years (repaired energy costs).

Frequently Asked Questions

Solar Energy............................?
I Heard That Solar Energy Is Expensive , So Why People Think Its Better To Use It ? ...

Solar is not as expensive as it used to be. It will not make sense for every household today, but will for some. A lot of it depends on where a person lives, and what the next best alternative is.

For example, if someone has a cabin on 20 acres in the north woods, there will be lots of downed timber on the ground, and it might be best to heat water with a wood-fired stove. Not much sun in the woods.

On a 5000 square foot lot in Hawaii, fuels are scarce. Even natural gas would have to be imported. An electric water heater would be expensive, because electricity would also be generated mainly from imported fuels. In that case, a solar water heater would make abundant sense.

Solar electricity follows a similar argument. One thing to remember is that the economics for an individual homeowner or business are different from that for a power company. The electric company can have a huge turbine fired by coal, natural gas, or nuclear. While that may be cheaper than solar, by the time the electricity gets to someone's house, with distribution charges and profit added in, the electricity is expensive. Solar electricity may actually be cheaper than the power company from the homeowner's point of view. It is at our house, and in fact, we've had solar electricity for five years now.

How Bush/Mccain Promote The Wind, Geothermal And Solar Energy?
If They Are Controlled By The Oil Companies?

the last energy bill that gave tax breaks to oil companies was a complete PLAY ON WORDS as usual...

the bill gave huge tax incentives for oil companies to "explore alternative energy sources". Which means.... where can we poke more holes in the ground ? doesn't mean "alternative forms of energy"...thats just ridiculous...what benefit would there be for an oil company to find alternatives to oil ? NONE !

wake up people...y'all got bushwacked !

"alternative energy...err uhhummm !... sources".... very clever don't you think ?

Which Is Better Nuclear Of Solar Energy?
Plz Give Your Opinion And A Reason Why?

Both have their advantages and problems but solar is clearly the winner here.

1. Environmental long term effects - cyanide , arsenic and fairly nasty chemicals are used in the production of solar cells. While nearly inert when they are in place, the production of these energy units could be ALOT more friendly.

That said, Nuclear power - in this regard is messy all around, the mining, extraction, storage, use and disposal of radioactive materials make this the LONG term looser.

Millions if not billions of years from now, the radioactive substances we create today, will still be dangerous, long after any solar cells have been turned back into sand.

2. Power concentration - Solar - except in very special circumstances is pretty "low" power concentration, you can power a house, or a small industrial park, but not necessarily a foundry or a heavy manufacturing facility - since the power requirements are SO much higher for a materials manufacturing plant than say - the average house. In this way currently nuclear has ALOT of advantage.

In the future, (provided we venture beyond Earth), vast solar arrays in space, could provide power of gigantic proportions.

3. Location - Nuclear plants and Solar facilities are EXPENSIVE to built. But nuclear facilities require alot of regulation, maintenance and other activities far beyond that for a solar facility of equivalent size and capacity. Secondly, while solar and nuclear are not cheap, only solar really can scale to small use (personal power), or to industrial scales.

4. Safety - Different from environmental safety, the worst societal threat from solar power, is likely to be people stealing solar panels and arrays and using them or selling them on Ebay is ethically bad, with nuclear power plants, stealing the fuel and selling it on Ebay, is otherwise a national security problem because usually nuclear fuel is also good for (at least) making a "dirty" bomb.

5. Availability - Solar is great- when the sun is out, but turn the lights out and solar is just not cutting it. Nuclear is "always on" or reactor facilities are created in such a way that some part of the plant is "always" online. So battery technology may improve over time, but at the moment, solar suffers from what is called "intermittency", but what most normal folks call "night".

How Is Solar Energy Formed?
Doing A Project... How Is Solar Energy Formed???

Solar energy is the light and radiant heat from the Sun that powers Earth's climate and weather and sustains life. Since ancient times it has been harnessed for human use through a range of technologies. Solar radiation along with secondary solar resources such as wind and wave power, hydroelectricity and biomass account for over 99.97% of the available flow of renewable energy on Earth.

Solar energy technologies can provide daylighting and thermal comfort in passive buildings, potable water via distillation and disinfection, hot water and space heating, space cooling by absorption or vapor-compression refrigeration, thermal energy for cooking, high temperature process heat for industrial purposes, and electrical generation by thermal or photovoltaic means.

Would This Apply For A Company Building A Home With Solar Panels?
I Am Doing A Research Paper Regarding Building Energy Efficient Homes In New Jersey. In A Recent Article I Read: &Quot;For Solar Power, New Jersey Residents Could Save Almost Half The Cost Of Installing Solar Panels On Their Houses Thanks To The Plan. As Outlined By The Stimulus Package, There'S A 30 Percent Tax Credit Or Grant That Is Available To Anybody Who Installs Solar Panels Through The End Of 2010.&Quot; Does Anyone Know If This Would Apply To A Company Building A House With Solar Panels? In Other Words, If A Company Built Homes That Come With Solar Panels Arleady Installed, Could They Recieve Money From The Gov'T... (Or Tax Credit, Im Not Really Sure What That Is Though) Thanks And Please List Sources If You Have Any

This is an individual incentive. The benefit to a company is they are paid to add this value to the home resulting in increased revenue. It may apply to a new home buyer-buying a new solar panel equipped home,but this is not clear.
