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 utilize the sun to power daily life: running your air conditioning system, washing clothes, watching TELEVISION, cooking supper. All while lowering your carbon footprint, and without burning nonrenewable fuel sources or putting a stress on the electrical grid. And while the environmental benefits of solar power are considerable, many home owners find that the benefit, unique features, and cost savings of owning a solar power system are even more alluring.

Top Ten Advantages of Solar Energy

Numerous homeowners decide to finance their solar panels with one of the "pay-as-you-go" funding choices. This suggests that a third-party company-- the solar company-- owns the solar system and takes care of installation, upkeep, tracking and repair works. You just pay the solar supplier for electrical power-- less than you would've paid the utility business.

Since June 2013, 75% of all American houses have access to pay-as-you-go solar.

#10. Solar is a Secure Financial investment

The energy business are infamous for their fluctuating and undependable electrical energy costs. There is clearly an upward pattern.

With photovoltaic panels and simple math, we can determine what does it cost? electrical energy will be produced, and most significantly, at what cost, for a minimum of the next Twenty Years (repaired energy costs).

Frequently Asked Questions

What Happens To A Solar Panel When The Water Is Diverted By The 3 Way Valve?
In A Solar Pool Heating System, Once The Pool Has Reached Its Required Temperature The 3 Way Valve Will Redirect The Water Away From The Solar Panels. My Question Is, What Happens To The Panels? Does The Water Just Sit In There, Slowly Boiling? Should It Form Its Own Circuit? Any Help Would Be Much Appreciated.

They should be installed so that when the pump is not pumping the water into the panels, the water drains back into the pool. So the panels will just be sitting there empty, happy as can be.

ty for answering my question b4. I like your cell analogy too. It is very original and i checked it over and everything makes sense ^^. I had too do a similar project like this but i based my analogy on a city.

Ever Wonder Why Our Energy Costs Are Skyrocketing?
Seems That Government Subsidies Per Unit Of Energy Are Huge For So-Called 'Renewables' Compared To Natural Gas/Petroleum Energy. The Government Gives Away Our Hard-Earned Tax Dollars To The Wind, Solar And Ethanol Industries And Then Forces Our Energy Companies To Buy/Use It, Which In Turn.... We As Consumers Are Forced To Buy At Needlessly High Prices.... All For A Totally Unproven Notion Of Man-Did-It Global Warming. This Is The Sort Of Needless Expense That Is Being Thrown On Us For The Sake Of Special Interests. The 'Man-Did-It' Global Warming Hoax Was Established To 'Justify' Screwing Us Over And Trashing Our Economy..... Except For The Al Gore Types. Your Thoughts? Fy 2007 Subsidy And Support Subsidy And Support Per Unit Of Production (Dollars Per Megawatthour) Coal 0.44 Refined Coal 29.81 Natural Gas And Petroleum Liquids 0.25 Nuclear 1.59 Biomass (And Biofuels) [Ethanol] 0.89 Geothermal 0.92 Hydroelectric 0.67 Solar 24.34 Wind 23.37 Landfill Gas 1.37 Http://Www.Eia.Doe.Gov/Oiaf/Servicerpt/Subsidy2/Pdf/Execsum.Pdf

Energy costs in the UK and Europe have rocketed up as we see more wind mills around the countryside. Now I know of some people that are petitioning their governments for the right to buy locally extracted coal again so that they can heat their homes for a fraction of the cost of regulated gas and electricity.

Cheap coal is almost everywhere beneath our feet and should be used freely! I don't want our grandchildren to freeze in another winter like the one we just had because they cant afford to keep themselves warm!

Where Does The Solar Energy Go To When It Hits The Solar Panel?
I Mean When Light Hits The Solar Panel Where Does The Energy Go And What Does It Become? Be Specific.

Visible light from the sun is in the form of photon before hitting the solar panel. In a silicon solar panel, the photon is caught by the semiconductor material. Energy equivalent of the photon is then used to excite an electron from the semiconductor molecule. The aggregate of free flowing electrons form the current in a closed electric circuit.

The efficency of conversion from sun light to electricity is not 100%. The majority of light energy hitting the solar panel is dissipated in the form of heat. As technology advances, the conversion efficiency is improving, hence reducing the cost of solar energy.
