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 daily life: running your a/c, washing clothing, watching TV, cooking supper. All while minimizing your carbon footprint, and without burning nonrenewable fuel sources or putting a stress on the electrical grid. And while the environmental advantages of solar power are substantial, lots of property owners discover that the convenience, unique functions, and cost savings of owning a solar power system are a lot more alluring.

Leading Benefits of Solar Energy

#1 Drastically reduce or perhaps remove your electrical costs

Whether you're a house owner, service, or nonprofit, electricity costs can make up a big part of your monthly costs. With a photovoltaic panel system, you'll produce free power for your system's entire 25+ year lifecycle. Even if you do not produce 100 percent of the energy you take in, solar will minimize your energy bills and you'll still conserve a great deal of money.

#2 Earn a great return on your financial investment

Photovoltaic panels aren't an expenditure-- they're one of the very best ways to invest, with returns measuring up to those of more standard investments like stocks and bonds. Thanks to considerable electrical power expense cost savings, the average American house owner pays off their solar panel system in 7 to eight years and sees an ROI of 20 percent or more.

#3 Secure versus rising energy expenses

One of the most clear cut advantages of solar panels is the capability to hedge energy costs. In the past ten years, property electrical power rates have actually gone up by approximately 3 percent each year. By investing in a solar energy system now, you can repair your electrical power rate and secure versus unpredictable increases in electrical energy expenses. If you're a business or homeowner with fluctuating capital, going solar also assists you much better projection and manage your costs.

#4 Increase your home worth

Numerous studies have found that homes equipped with solar energy systems have greater property worths and offer faster than non-solar homes. Appraisers are increasingly taking solar installations into consideration as they value houses at the time of a sale, and as homebuyers become more educated about solar, need for properties geared up with photovoltaic 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 achieving energy self-reliance in the United States. By increasing our capability to create electricity from the sun, we can likewise insulate our country from cost changes in international energy markets.

#6 Create jobs and assist your local economy

According to 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 jobs in the country. This growth is expected to continue. Due to the fact that solar-related tasks tend to be greater paying and can not be outsourced, they are a significant factor to the United States economy.

#7 Protect the environment

Solar is an excellent way to lower your carbon footprint. Structures are responsible for 38 percent of all carbon emissions in the U.S., and going solar can substantially reduce that number. A normal property solar panel system will eliminate three to 4 loads of carbon emissions each year-- the equivalent of planting over 100 trees every year.

#8 Demonstrate your commitment to sustainability

Sustainability and business social responsibility are essential elements of an organization's culture and values. They likewise produce bottom line outcomes. Progressively, consumers and communities are recognizing and rewarding companies that opt to operate responsibly. Organisations are discovering that "green" credentials are a powerful chauffeur of customer acquiring decisions, creating goodwill and improving organisation outcomes.

#9 Start Conserving from Day 1

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

Lots of house owners choose to finance their photovoltaic panels with one of the "pay-as-you-go" funding choices. This means that a third-party company-- the solar service provider-- owns the planetary system and takes care of setup, maintenance, monitoring and repair works. You simply pay the solar service provider for electrical energy-- 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 companies are infamous for their fluctuating and unreliable electrical power prices. There is clearly an upward trend.

With photovoltaic panels and easy mathematics, we can calculate what does it cost? electricity will be produced, and most notably, at what price, for a minimum of the next 20 years (fixed energy costs).

Financing

Frequently Asked Questions

Can Anyone Explain What Solar Energy Is, And It'S Use?

Solar energy, radiant light and heat from the sun, has been harnessed by humans since ancient times using a range of ever-evolving technologies. Solar radiation, along with secondary solar-powered resources such as wind and wave power, hydroelectricity and biomass, account for most of the available renewable energy on earth. Only a minuscule fraction of the available solar energy is used.
Solar powered electrical generation relies on heat engines and photovoltaics. Solar energy's uses are limited only by human ingenuity. A partial list of solar applications includes space heating and cooling through solar architecture, potable water via distillation and disinfection, daylighting, solar hot water, solar cooking, and high temperature process heat for industrial purposes.To harvest the solar energy, the most common way is to use solar panels.
Solar technologies are broadly characterized as either passive solar or active solar depending on the way they capture, convert and distribute solar energy. Active solar techniques include the use of photovoltaic panels and solar thermal collectors to harness the energy. Passive solar techniques include orienting a building to the Sun, selecting materials with favorable thermal mass or light dispersing properties, and designing spaces that naturally circulate air.

What Are The Advantages And Disadvantages Of A Cooperation With Africa Considering Solar Energy?
Like Installing Solar Panels In The Sahara Desert

That would be a good idea but the problem that there could face would be the money. Africa would face hard time if they decide to spend there money on solar panel rather than food for the dying children.
The advantages would be probley save more money .

Solar Energy?
Which Is Better For Large Scale Electrical Production; Solar Thermal Applications Or Pv Applications? Reguarding Costs And Amount Of Space Required?

There is some debate about this question. Photovoltaics have a long way to go (although they are improving). Check out these links to someone proposing using a Stirling engine. Maybe that's what you mean by solar thermal.

Why Solar Energy Still Not Widely Used ? Any Restrictions Or Drawbacks Using Solar Energy ?

It costs more in two ways:

1) it costs more per kilowatt-hour to produce, on average, given the capital cost and

2) the energy is effectively paid for with capital cost rather than gradually over years like normal utility power. You can take out loans, but then you get hit with interest.

Someday it will be cheaper than grid power, but probably ten years or more.

(Let me also add that some of hte big oil companies own solar companies, e.g. BP Solar. They're slowly giving up on oil and determined to monopolize the next energy source...)

Please!Tell Me Why Solar Energy Is Considered To Be The Poor-Man'S Choice In Electricity In Morocco?
I Had A Conversation With Dh A Long Time Ago About This. Why Is Solar Energy The Poor-Man'S Choice? I Know Solar Panels Can Be Very Expensive Here--How About There? Do They Have Subsidies To Help Ppl Get Them? It Seems So Sad To See A Country With So Much Sun Not Take Advantage Of It More. Do Any Government Offices Use It? I Guess Not Since It Seems To Be Looked Down Upon..... Anybody Have An Solutions? Lol --It'S Homework Time! ;)

I do not believe it is the poor-man's choice. I think it would be everyone's choice here if they could afford to purchase it.
It is becoming more and more common here (far more common than in the U.S. per capita in my opinion-not an official poll :-p ). Like Nomadic most people I encounter who don't have it want it. The wealthiest neighborhood in Agadir not a villa is without it. We live right in the center of Agadir in a building that is a bit tall by Agadir standard and I can see many of them on houses in the surrounding neighborhoods.
The units that are most common and can be used on a house or villa up to 350 square meters costs about $1000 with installation. I think that is a pretty good price compared to USA (correct me if I am wrong).
We don't use one for our apartment because it is a co-op building and our association doesn't want the roof looking like the typical Moroccan roof top full off dozens of dishes (there are 2 established for everyones use) or solar units. Personally, my husband and I would completely support it but that is another story.
We are not the poor man nor the rich man but we are having it installed on the beach house, (there isn't electricity ran out there yet, lol) but we would of done it even if there was electricity run out there.
I have never noticed any government offices with it but I never really gave it any attention...I'll have to do that.
Government subsidies!?!?! Wouldn't that be nice.....oh a little dream world :-p It would be so great if everyone could use solar energy, I think here the poorest people are likely concerned with getting other things before they would purchase a solar power unit.
