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 property owner to use the sun to power everyday life: running your a/c, cleaning clothes, enjoying TV, cooking supper. All while lowering your carbon footprint, and without burning fossil fuels or putting a strain on the electrical grid. And while the environmental advantages of solar power are substantial, numerous residents discover that the benefit, distinct functions, and cost savings of owning a solar power system are much more alluring.

Top 10 Benefits of Solar Energy

#1 Dramatically lower or even remove your electric bills

Whether you're a property owner, organization, or not-for-profit, electrical power expenses can comprise a large portion of your regular monthly expenses. With a photovoltaic panel system, you'll create complimentary power for your system's whole 25+ year lifecycle. Even if you do not produce 100 percent of the energy you take in, solar will decrease your utility expenses and you'll still conserve a lot of loan.

#2 Make an excellent return on your financial investment

Photovoltaic panels aren't a cost-- they're one of the finest ways to invest, with returns equaling those of more standard investments like stocks and bonds. Thanks to significant electrical power expense cost savings, the average American property owner pays off their solar panel system in seven to 8 years and sees an ROI of 20 percent or more.

#3 Secure versus rising energy expenses

One of the most clear cut benefits of photovoltaic panels is the ability to hedge energy prices. In the previous ten years, property electrical power costs have gone up by an average of three percent each year. By purchasing a solar energy system now, you can fix your electrical energy rate and protect versus unpredictable increases in electrical power expenses. If you're a company or property owner with fluctuating cash flow, going solar likewise assists you much better projection and handle your costs.

#4 Boost your property value

Multiple studies have discovered that homes equipped with solar energy systems have higher home values and offer quicker than non-solar houses. Appraisers are significantly taking solar installations into consideration as they value homes at the time of a sale, and as homebuyers end up being more educated about solar, demand for residential or commercial properties geared up 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 an essential component of accomplishing energy self-reliance in the United States. By increasing our capacity to create electrical power from the sun, we can also insulate our country from cost fluctuations in worldwide energy markets.

#6 Develop jobs and assist your regional economy

According to The Solar Structure, the solar industry included tasks at a rate almost 12 times faster than the overall U.S. economy in 2015, representing 1.2 percent of all tasks in the country. This growth is anticipated to continue. Due to the fact that solar-related jobs have the tendency to be higher paying and can not be outsourced, they are a considerable factor to the United States economy.

#7 Safeguard the environment

Solar is an excellent way to reduce your carbon footprint. Buildings are responsible for 38 percent of all carbon emissions in the United States, and going solar can substantially reduce that number. A common residential photovoltaic panel system will eliminate three to four lots of carbon emissions each year-- the equivalent of planting over 100 trees yearly.

#8 Demonstrate your commitment to sustainability

Sustainability and business social responsibility are crucial parts of an organization's culture and worths. They likewise produce bottom line results. Progressively, consumers and neighborhoods are acknowledging and rewarding businesses that decide to operate responsibly. Organisations are finding that "green" qualifications are an effective driver of consumer acquiring choices, producing goodwill and improving service outcomes.

#9 Start Conserving from Day 1

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

Numerous homeowners pick to finance their solar panels with among the "pay-as-you-go" financing options. This indicates that a third-party company-- the solar company-- owns the solar system and looks after setup, upkeep, monitoring and repairs. You just pay the solar provider for electricity-- less than you would've paid the utility business.

Since 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 infamous for their changing and unreliable electrical power prices. There is clearly an upward pattern.

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

"This is a particular area which isn't popular among investors" Whaaa? Which planet are you living on?

The problem with investing in any green technologies is that there is way too much money chasing too few productive investments. It's hard to make any money in an environment like this. Investing in the sector as a whole doesn't even make much sense to me because even if the technology is ultimately successful (and it's hard to see solar power competing with fossil fuels anytime soon) there will be a huge wash-out rate among current players.

Everyone wants to make money investing in green technologies. It's best not to invest in areas where it would be very stylish to make money.

Without Exception, The Most Common Solution To Curing The World Of Its Fever From So-Called &Quot;Global Warming&Quot; Discussed Is To Raise Taxes. How Much Would Taxes Have To Increase Before So-Called &Quot;Global Warming&Quot; Was Cured?

You can take away light bulbs.
You can take away effective refrigerants
You can make lying movies and raise the awareness.

Quote by Al Gore, former U.S. vice president, and large CO2 producer: "I believe it is appropriate to have an over-representation of factual presentations on how dangerous it is, as a predicate for opening up the audience to listen to what the solutions are, and how hopeful it is that we are going to solve this crisis."

You could go Communist.

Quote by Gus Hall, former leader of the Communist Party USA: "Human society cannot basically stop the destruction of the environment under capitalism. Socialism is the only structure that makes it possible."

You could make people eat grass, live in caves, and beat their clothes on rocks down by the stream.

Quote by Maurice Strong, a wealthy elitist and primary power behind UN throne, and large CO2 producer: "Current lifestyles and consumption patterns of the affluent middle class - involving high meat intake, use of fossil fuels, appliances, air-conditioning, and suburban housing - are not sustainable."

Keep people in the dark as to science and real facts.

Quote by Ross Gelbsan, former journalist: “Not only do journalists not have a responsibility to report what skeptical scientists have to say about global warming. They have a responsibility not to report what these scientists say.”

Cut all cheap energy.

Quote by Paul Ehrlich, professor, Stanford University: “Giving society cheap, abundant energy would be the equivalent of giving an idiot child a machine gun.”

Return to the stone age.

Quote by David Foreman, co-founder of Earth First!: “We must make this an insecure and inhospitable place for capitalists and their projects. We must reclaim the roads and plowed land, halt dam construction, tear down existing dams, free shackled rivers and return to wilderness millions of acres of presently settled land.”

That is one method. The method that is being pressed upon us by the greenies as their solution to AGW.

However, if there truly was global warming and it was caused by CO2 there are many solutions.

First of all, bring back railroads. That still is the cheapest and efficient of mass commodity hauling available.

Make our streets and roads more efficient. A lot of energy is wasted sitting at stop lights and they pollute more when at a stand still. I could write a book on this subject. But that sums it up.

Reduce the government bureaucracies. Delete the Department of Education. A lot of time, money, effort and energy is wasted by a department that never does what its name says. Delete the EPA. It only protects selected individuals but not the environment. It uses too much energy. And there are many other fossil fuel guzzling departments.

All environmentalist protesters can make only $10,000 a year. Anything after that goes to the government to pay for police protection and other expense they needlessly cause. People like Mia Farrow would fatten the US Treasury.

All environmental Lawyers can only make $20,000 a year including benefits.

Put a sales tax of 100% on all politician's golfing activities.

Mandate that Washington D. C. be powered by solar or wind power exclusively. if they expect us to do it they are leaders and should show us how.

Build more hydroelectric dams and forget about the snail darter, who will survive anyway.

Build more nuclear facilities. They have proven their worth.

Outlaw private jets.

All yachts have to go back to sails. Oil tankers will have to be sail driven.

The governments will have to cut all fossil fuel usage by 80%.

All diplomatic negotiations will be by telecommunication. This would not only save fossil fuel but the negotiations should be public anyway.

Congress shall enact no laws that doesn't apply to them. There was a law enacted under Reagan to that effect but it got canceled out silently and speedily by another administration.

Open up all public oil fields without restraints. A $5 dollar claim just like in the gold rush days should be sufficient.

Pipelines shall have priority. After all proper design and usage will reduce energy usage. Better than shipping by train.

This is just a start, but why go on? It'll never happen because it would affect the powerbrokers the most.

What Are Four Types Of Energy And Where Do They Come From?
I Need Help With Science. Please Answer A.S.A.P!

If you mean defined in physics, energy is the capacity to do work. An object has kinetic energy if it is moving. If there are some constrained or pent-up forces, preventing the object to move, the object is said to have potential energy. There are various subsets or forms of both kinetic and potential energy, such as heat, chemical, electrical, light and nuclear energy.

If you mean more colloquial energy, there's coal, petroleum, natural gas, nuclear power, wind, wave, deep-current, tidal, solar reflection, solar absorption (photovoltaic), and geothermal.

Help? I Need Some Ideas Plz?
I Have This Project That I Have To Make A Commercial For Solar Energy And I Have To Convince People That Solar Energy Is The Best Kind Of Energies. I Have Three Reasons Why It Good *It Is Cheap *It Is Good For The Environment * It Decreases The Foreign Trade Do You Have Any Ideas How To Turn These Reasons Into A Commercial

Show two communities, one with solar power and one without.

For the environment reason show polluted water going into a lake caused by an electricity generating plant, then a family enjoying the beach on the lake in the solar community.

For the expense show a family opening an ever increasing bill for power and the other family commenting on how they actually get paid to put excess solar power back onto the power grid.

I don't know how it decreases foreign trade though.

Basically go back and forth between these two communities showing the differences. One community should be dark and dingy and the other bright and sunny. You could also show a power outage in one place, but not in the other.

For fun you could model this after Bob the Builder and Sunflower valley. Look him up if you don't know about him.

What Keeps The Solar Energy So Expensive? Why So Far Its Not Commercialized?

Solar energy is not cost effective.It costs high for installation.Batteries are costly and requires replacement.It can not provide enough power to run factories and heavy machines.With out Govt subsidy they can not be sold.So the commercial exploitation of solar energy is not possible now.
