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

"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

Where the sun shines on Solar panels and is used to generate electricity?
People put them on the roof of their house in the UK.

They don't use it much in Norway because they dont get much sun
Norway is steep and has rivers so they use hydroelectricity there.
I believe it's used in africa on a small scale, great sun but not much development there

Please Help Me Elaborate On Solar Energy..?
I Need It Urgently Asap...I Need A Elaboration On Solar Energy,How It Is Produced,Who Produces It,Why They Produce It,What Is Used To Produce It,Where Its Produced And Solar Panels

Most solar energy relies on one of two processes.

A) Photoelectric effects - a photon, packet of light, hits a material dislodging some of the electrons this creates an electric current, and we get electricity.

B)Heat. Some solar systems use light to excite molecules in a liquid; the liquid gets hotter. The energy in the liquid then is used to convert water to steam which turns a steam turbine which generates electricity.

There are solar panels, solar towers, fields of mirrors, and other things that implement these ideas.

Who produces it-
I think alot of electric companies actually have some solar plants. People can use solar energy with personal equipment. In specific you might want to check out the articles about solar energy in spain on www.technologyreview.com.

Why Solar Energy is used
Solar energy is used because it is a renewable resource, it is clean, and for a particular place, like an equitorial country, solar energy is abundant and cheap. Countries may have a particular want to use solar energy so that they may lessen their dependency on less reliable sources of energy.

What is used to produce it

As I said before solar towers, solar panels, and other systems are used to produce it. Solar panels, solar towers, and mirror fields tend to be pretty popular. The idea is with technology used to harness solar energy is be creative, and make it efficient. An example company that produces solar panels is Soliant Energy.

Where it is produced.

Any where sunshine is abundant almost year round. Spain is particularly proud of its solar energy program. People can produce it in their own homes. Google's main offices are powered a good deal by solar energy.

If Someone Wants A Career Doing Energy Audits Of Homes And Businesses And Installing Solar Panels, What Job?
I Would Like To Do Energy Audits Of Homes And Businesses And Figure Out How Much Energy They Use And In What Ways They Could Reduce Energy Output. Also I Would Like To Install The Things That I Suggest, Such As Solar Panels And Solar Water Heaters, Etc. I Would Like To Work For Myself. What Kind Of Career Would This Be Called And What Kind Of Education Would I Have To Get?

This would be called a low end, non-skilled job. People who do this work for solar panel dealers, and are typically trained on the job. It's not much above minimum wage, and the only decent career path is in someday owning your own business.

For that, a business degree would suit you better than any tech degree.

An AS in electronics would prepare you for the job you described.

Did I mention that it's a low end, low paid job, with not much future?
