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 house owners to use the sun to power daily life: running your air conditioning system, washing clothes, watching TELEVISION, cooking supper. All while minimizing your carbon footprint, and without burning fossil fuels or putting a stress on the electrical grid. And while the environmental benefits of solar power are significant, lots of home owners discover that the benefit, distinct features, and cost savings of owning a solar power system are a lot more attractive.

Leading Advantages of Solar Energy

#1 Dramatically lower or perhaps eliminate your electric costs

Whether you're a homeowner, business, or nonprofit, electrical power costs can comprise a big part of your regular monthly expenditures. With a solar panel system, you'll generate totally free power for your system's whole 25+ year lifecycle. Even if you do not produce One Hundred Percent of the energy you consume, solar will lower your utility expenses and you'll still save a lot of money.

#2 Make a fantastic return on your financial investment

Photovoltaic panels aren't an expenditure-- they are among the best ways to invest, with returns equaling those of more conventional financial investments like stocks and bonds. Thanks to significant electrical power expense savings, the average American house owner settles their solar panel system in seven to 8 years and sees an ROI of 20 percent or more.

#3 Secure versus increasing energy costs

Among the most clear cut benefits of solar panels is the ability to hedge energy prices. In the past 10 years, domestic electrical energy costs have gone up by approximately 3 percent every year. By purchasing a solar energy system now, you can repair your electricity rate and secure against unpredictable increases in electrical energy expenses. If you're a service or homeowner with ever-changing capital, going solar also assists you better forecast and manage your costs.

#4 Increase your home value

Multiple research studies have found that houses geared up with solar energy systems have higher residential or commercial property values and sell more quickly than non-solar homes. Appraisers are increasingly taking solar installations into factor to consider as they value houses at the time of a sale, and as property buyers become more educated about solar, need for properties equipped with solar panel systems will continue to grow.

#5 Increase U.S. energy self-reliance

The sun is a near-infinite source of energy and a key element of accomplishing energy independence in the United States. By increasing our capability to create electricity from the sun, we can likewise insulate our nation from price changes in worldwide energy markets.

#6 Create jobs and assist your regional economy

Inning accordance with The Solar Foundation, the solar market included tasks at a rate nearly 12 times faster than the overall U.S. economy in 2015, representing 1.2 percent of all jobs in the nation. This growth is anticipated to continue. Because solar-related tasks tend to be higher paying and can not be contracted out, they are a considerable factor to the U.S. economy.

#7 Safeguard the environment

Solar is a great way to minimize 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 typical property photovoltaic panel system will get rid of 3 to 4 lots of carbon emissions each year-- the equivalent of planting over 100 trees annually.

#8 Demonstrate your dedication to sustainability

Sustainability and business social responsibility are very important parts of a company's culture and values. They likewise produce bottom line outcomes. Significantly, customers and communities are acknowledging and rewarding businesses that decide to run responsibly. Services are discovering that "green" credentials are an effective driver of customer purchasing choices, producing goodwill and enhancing company outcomes.

#9 Start Conserving from Day 1

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

Numerous house owners choose to finance their solar panels with one of the "pay-as-you-go" funding alternatives. This indicates that a third-party company-- the solar supplier-- owns the planetary system and takes care of installation, maintenance, tracking and repair works. You merely pay the solar supplier for electrical energy-- less than you would've paid the utility business.

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 utility business are notorious for their changing and unreliable electrical power prices. There is clearly an upward trend.

With solar panels and basic math, we can determine what does it cost? electrical power will be created, and most notably, at exactly what price, for a minimum of the next Twenty Years (fixed energy expenses).


What are the various payment options?

We have many flexible purchasing agreements for customers who would like to install a new home solar system. There are three different payment options, making them a viable choice for customers of all budgets. The payment options include Lease, PPA, and Purchase.

The Lease

What happens when the contract for my lease is finished?

We provide our customers with a few different options for when their lease contract is up. Customers can upgrade their equipment to the newest solar technology available, extend the agreement, or have the panels removed at no cost.

What is the warranty?

The Lease and PPA include a 20-year warranty during the lifetime of the system. This warranty exceeds that of most other solar installers’ warranties.

Frequently Asked Questions

What Is Solar Generation And Heating Systems?
What Is Solar Generation And Heating Systems?

Solar Generation and heating systems if taken together would probably mean using solar power to offset you r water and household heating bill.

There are many plans available to build a solar heating system for hot water in your home.

If you produce solar energy the best thing to do is pump it back into the grid, it offsets your usage and lowers your bill.

Does Anyone Have Any Good Ideas Of Alternative Energy?
Sources To Power Cars

For the mass market...

Medium term - hybrids offer the best payoff.

Long term - pure electric so that more sustainable (e.g. wind/solar/geothermal) and non-greenhouse-based (e.g. nuclear) energy can be used to power them through the grid.

Ethanol has some promise but as presently deployed (corn) the energy return from burning versus the energy invested in growing the corn and refining the fuel is debatable - the industry is largely sustained through massive government subsidies. Other non-corn ethanols could be better.

Biodiesel is an interesting niche, but basically can't scale.

Hydrogen is totally flawed. It burns clean, but it's expensive to extract. The only economical way to produce hydrogen now is - drum roll - from other hydrocarbons. Yep, you guessed it, oil. There's no advantage there in cost, availability, or global warming. Yes, you can get it from water too, but that requires massive amounts of hydrogen. This is a way oversold technology.

Solar Cell Phones And Automobiles? We Can Do It!?
I Have 2 Ideas, Actually 3. 1) Make Automobiles Have Solar Bodies, So That In The Daylight, The Sun Generates Power To Run An Electric Engine, Which In Turn, Could Charge Batteries That The Car Could Run On At Night. 2) Have Solar Panels On Our Cell Phones. Have The Body Of The Outside Of Cell Phones Collect Electricty From Sunlight, So We'D Never Ever Need To Plug Them Into Power Outlets. It'S Possible To Do. 3) Make It A Law World Wide To Have All Homes, Roofs, And Buildings Have Solar Panels On Them. Since So Much Land And Water Is Real Estate, Why Not Have All Surfaces Made Into Solar Panels? It Can Be Done. But, Electric Companies Would Have To Buy Power From Us!

The solar car has been done. But in order to be practical, it only leaves about 2 cubic yards of space for the passenger and any cargo. NO ONE is going to squeezing into a 6x3x3 area to drive around each day, and certainly not if they have kids. And that doesn't even begin to address truck shipping needs!

Rooftop solar panels have also proven to be a lot more expensive to manufacture, install, and maintain than the energy output they provide. A typical rooftop costs about $75,000 to install. It would take you over 100 years to recoup that cost. So it simply isn't practical.

Solar powered cell phones? I'm all for that! This way, most of the time when people want to use them inside cars and restaurants and movie theaters, they wouldn't work! You'd have to go outside and be in direct sunlight for them to work. THAT is a fantastic idea.

A much more practical solution is to require more people to ride motorcycles, by law. They do it on Bermuda and other island nations where traffic and pollution are a concern, and in places where there are large numbers of people like China, India, Europe and the rest of Asia, motorcycles are not only more prevalent but they are also more efficient. The typical 650cc motorcycle today gets between 40-mph and 50-mph. THAT is a REAL thing we can do today.

If the law said you could only use a motorcycle within city limits, you'd not only see a massive savings in energy use, but much better traffic, much better and more attentive driving skills (by necessity), and much more interest in letting people work from home.

Does Japan Really Have Self-Sufficient Solar Energy Homes?
I Have Heard From A Friend That In Japan, They Have Some Houses That Utilize Solar Energy To Power The House And Charge Their Electric Car, And This Is The Only Energy It Ever Needs. Is This True, And Where Can I Learn More About It?

Nothing new. I have several friends in Mexico that have homes that are not connected to the electric system and use solar power with battery bank for storage.

This is well known old technology. Solar systems are great and works well. It is just very expensive relative to the electric power grid in most areas.

Japan should be very advanced in this area because they have had very high power cot for many years. It is primarily the cost effectiveness of solar that is holding it back. It is also not reliable in many areas due to cloudy weather and shorter days.

Energy & Environmental Science?
Imagine That You Are An Official At The Department Of Energy And You Are In A Budgeting Process For Alternative Fuel Energy Research? Where Would You Put The Money And Why? What Do You Think The Political Repercussions Would Be?

Re answered.. Unfortuanately, if you are looking for the " one best answer", there is not one. It makes more sense to divide the funding amoung a "group" of Biofuels..

Solar and wind energy help reduce dependance on fuels to some fractional amount, but they will never produce enough power to completely replace hydrocarbon power entirely, though they should still be employed.

Don't do Corn derived fuel (E-85) EXCLUSIVELY ... I like it, and use it, mainly because the effective octane is much higher than premium gasoline, (less energy density, but higher effective octane) but it is too ineffecient to produce on a massive scale (specifically and sadly, production to a greater volume than gasoline would be a mistake).

Look at Salt grass for future fuels from plants....and other biofuels...

Biogasoline, or ethanol, is being fermented out of corn (USA), sugar cane (Brazil), sugar beet, wheat, potatos, grass and wood (=Methanol)

-Biodiesel is being made out of plant oil (like palm oil, soja and canola), used cooking oil and carcass (
-Biogas is also being made by fermentation of grass, plant waste, animal and human waste like garbage and liquid manure.
The chart below is from Swiss Study on the production effeciency of biofuels versus fossil fuels, and gasoline from oil is given a 100 % eco-rating. lower than 100 % is a better "carbon footprint" for production :

-Biofuel from whey 70%
-Biogas from liquid manure 75%
-Biodiesel from used cooking oil 75%
-Biogas from garbage 75%
-Biofuel from wood 80%
-Natural gas 80%
-Biofuel from grass 90%
-Diesel 90%
-Gasoline from oil 100%
-Biofuel from sugar beet 110%
-Biofuel from sugar cane 130%
-Biodiesel from palm oil 130%
-Biodiesel from canola 180%
-Biofuel from corn 250%
-Biofuel from potatos 480%
-Biofuel from rye 500%

Notice Corn (AKA E-85) is at 250 % versus good old 87 octane gasoline from oil. The greater the distance from the Midwest farm and processing plants for E-85, the higer the Carbon Footprint .
POLITICAL consequences, yes. I can hear Farmers and E-85 plants protesting now, etc, etc. Yes, there is already an infrastructure in place for E-85, Government programs for subsidies... (and the political atmosphere that creates). Yet looking at the chart, whey...Soybean...waste producs, garbage, wood, cooking oils, even natural gas comes in ahead of gasoline from oil.... Corn does NOT at 250 %....

Bottom line: YES, KEEP the "existing level" E-85 (but do NOT expand it !), MAINTAIN only.....for now

and invest (FUND) in everything on the list that's less than 100 % for gasoline from oil, except Diesel from oil, which is lower on the refinement process on the way to gasoline....
Eventually, E-85 from Corn may start to be replaced by other crops, or biofuels... but not yet.

When technically feasible in the future, Nuclear Fusion for power generation is viable as a fuel replacement for power plants and theoretically, anything that currently runs on Nuclear Fission for power genertation. Nuclear Fusion for power generation would be the BIG TICKET that would solve a great deal of the energy issues, but the tech is NOT there yet... too early to invest.

(Unless you are investing for a newborn grandchild...) Nuclear fusion for power genration is at least 50 years away (perhaps more)... that's why I would NOT look at investing in ITER, the NIF or any of their supporting companies at this time. The Technology Readiness level (TRL) is around a 3 at best...which means the concept is there, but analytical studies and laboratory studies are on-going to physically validate the analytical predictions of separate elements of the technology, which in this case, the technology has not been acheived yet (not with more output energy than input, with sustainment). Additionally, there is not yet enough integration of sub-systems to make it happen and those sub-systems are still technically beyond us. I would estimate TRL 6 by 2060. But a TRL of 9 is needed. Look at investing for an un-born Grandchild !!! When a new born in 2015 retires at around 70 years of age, they may be in a position to reap the benifits at that time (late 21st Century...early 22nd). Too bad Heavy machinery, transportation tech and power generation does NOT follow Moores Law like computer memory does....
