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 air conditioner, washing clothes, watching TELEVISION, cooking dinner. All while reducing your carbon footprint, and without burning nonrenewable fuel sources or putting a pressure on the electrical grid. And while the ecological benefits of solar power are substantial, many homeowners find that the convenience, unique functions, and expense savings of owning a solar power system are even more enticing.

Top Ten Advantages of Solar Energy

#1 Considerably lower or perhaps remove your electrical costs

Whether you're a house owner, business, or not-for-profit, electricity expenses can comprise a big portion of your regular monthly expenses. With a solar panel system, you'll generate free power for your system's whole 25+ year lifecycle. Even if you don't produce 100 percent of the energy you consume, solar will lower your energy bills and you'll still conserve a lot of cash.

#2 Earn a terrific return on your investment

Solar panels aren't an expense-- they are among the finest ways to invest, with returns rivaling those of more conventional investments like stocks and bonds. Thanks to considerable electricity costs cost savings, the typical American house owner pays off their photovoltaic panel system in seven to eight years and sees an ROI of 20 percent or more.

#3 Protect against rising energy costs

Among the most clear cut advantages of solar panels is the ability to hedge energy prices. In the past 10 years, property electrical power costs have actually gone up by approximately three percent each year. By buying a solar energy system now, you can repair your electrical power rate and protect versus unpredictable increases in electricity expenses. If you're a service or property owner with fluctuating money flow, going solar likewise assists you much better projection and handle your expenses.

#4 Increase your home worth

Multiple research studies have actually found that homes geared up with solar energy systems have higher property worths and offer faster than non-solar homes. Appraisers are significantly taking solar installations into factor to consider as they value houses at the time of a sale, and as homebuyers end up being more educated about solar, demand 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 a crucial component of achieving energy self-reliance in the United States. By increasing our capability to create electrical energy from the sun, we can also insulate our nation from rate changes in global energy markets.

#6 Create jobs and assist your regional economy

Inning accordance with The Solar Structure, the solar industry included tasks at a rate almost 12 times faster than the general U.S. economy in 2015, representing 1.2 percent of all tasks in the country. This growth is expected to continue. Due to the fact that solar-related tasks tend to be higher paying and can not be outsourced, they are a considerable factor to the U.S. economy.

#7 Protect the environment

Solar is a terrific method to minimize your carbon footprint. Buildings are responsible for 38 percent of all carbon emissions in the U.S., and going solar can substantially reduce that number. A common property photovoltaic panel system will get rid of 3 to four lots of carbon emissions each year-- the equivalent of planting over 100 trees each year.

#8 Show your dedication to sustainability

Sustainability and corporate social responsibility are very important components of a company's culture and values. They also produce bottom line outcomes. Increasingly, consumers and communities are acknowledging and rewarding businesses that opt to run responsibly. Businesses are finding that "green" credentials are a powerful driver of customer purchasing decisions, creating 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 property owners to go solar for little or no loan down.

Numerous homeowners decide to finance their photovoltaic panels with one of the "pay-as-you-go" funding options. This means that a third-party business-- the solar supplier-- owns the solar system and looks after setup, upkeep, tracking and repairs. You simply pay the solar company for electricity-- less than you would've paid the energy business.

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

#10. Solar is a Secure Investment

The energy business are well-known for their changing and unreliable electrical power rates. There is plainly an upward pattern.

With photovoltaic panels and basic mathematics, we can compute how much electrical power will be produced, and most significantly, at what cost, for a minimum of the next 20 years (fixed energy expenses).

Why Aren'T New Homes Built With Solar Panels?

Because they're ugly, expensive, and need huge, toxic batteries. In areas with a lot of snow, they could be destroyed during the winter.

How Much Does It Cost To Get Solar Panels Installed In Ut?
There Is A Problem In Utah That You Can Get Reimbursed For Some Of The Cost Of Getting Solar Panels Installed. I Think My House (Facing South) Is Perfect For It. But They Only Cover Much Of The Cost.

Check for Rocky Mountain Power incentives. They have a lottery now so you have to apply with your proposal and then only a limited number are chosen. Next applications are accepted 15 Jan 2014.
The system that the Clark Planetarium has on the roof is grid-tied 25 kW. It cost $100,000 with incentives and tax allowances. It saves us about $4,000 per year, so when it is about worn out (it has a 25 year warranty), it will have paid for itself.

You can probably get a 3 kW system for your home for around $15,000. The RMP incentive would be around $3,000 if you can win the lottery, and Utah gives a maximum $2,000 tax credit. That system would save you about $500 per year on your electricity, making your pay-back period about 20 years. Maybe there are federal tax credits. The tax credits and utility incentive are piracy in my opinion, but making my own electricity is enterprising and productive, and I want to do it myself as soon as I get $10,000 saved.

Info On Solar Panels And Heated Water Required?
I Thought That Solar Panels Heated Water That Could Be Put Into The Central Heating System But I Have Been Told That Only The Very, Very Expensive Ones (£20,000) Do This. It Seems That The Others Heat The Non-Central Heating Water Supply Only. Can Anyone Expand On This? My Objective Was To Reduce All My Bills By Using Solar Energy To Heat All Water Used In My Home And Just 'Top' This Up As Required.

Bullsh*t...www.solarheating.com............ can make your own and use the central water heaters and radiators.....old black garden hoses in a black box with glass will give u 160 f. hot water even on a bad day....please check the internet and get FREE HOT WATER.......FORGET the 20,000 quid dude...

Ac Watts Vs Dc Watts - Solar Power Question?
Is The Formula For Calculating Watts For Dc The Same As For Ac (Volts X Amps = Watts)? I'M Trying To Figure Out The Details Of A Solar System. There Is A Company Selling Controllers That Are Rated For Either 10 Amps, 20 Amps Or 30 Amps 12/24 Volt Dc. At 30 Amps 12 Volt Dc You Would Only Be Getting 360 Watts Right?

Yes! you only will be getting 360 watts.
You didn't explain if the 360 watts was input from the PV panel or if that was load.
Either way 360 watts though, so your correct.
Voltage times amperage = wattage =====> AC or DC, it doesn't matter.
