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 utilize the sun to power daily life: running your air conditioner, washing clothing, seeing TELEVISION, cooking dinner. All while reducing your carbon footprint, and without burning nonrenewable fuel sources or putting a stress on the electrical grid. And while the ecological advantages of solar power are substantial, numerous home owners find that the benefit, special features, and cost savings of owning a solar power system are even more alluring.

Leading Benefits of Solar Energy

#1 Considerably decrease or perhaps eliminate your electric bills

Whether you're a homeowner, service, or not-for-profit, electricity costs can make up a large part of your regular monthly expenditures. With a photovoltaic panel system, you'll create totally 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 minimize your utility expenses and you'll still save a lot of cash.

#2 Earn a great return on your financial investment

Solar panels aren't a cost-- they're one of the very best methods to invest, with returns measuring up to those of more conventional financial investments like stocks and bonds. Thanks to substantial electricity costs cost savings, the typical American property owner pays off their solar panel system in seven to eight years and sees an ROI of 20 percent or more.

#3 Secure versus increasing energy costs

One of the most clear cut benefits of solar panels is the capability to hedge utility costs. In the previous ten years, property electrical power prices have actually increased by an average of three percent yearly. By buying a solar energy system now, you can repair your electricity rate and safeguard against unforeseeable boosts in electrical power expenses. If you're a service or house owner with ever-changing money circulation, going solar also assists you better projection and handle your expenses.

#4 Boost your home value

Several studies have actually found that houses equipped with solar energy systems have greater property worths and sell more quickly than non-solar homes. Appraisers are increasingly taking solar setups into factor to consider as they value houses at the time of a sale, and as property buyers end up being 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 crucial part of accomplishing energy independence in the United States. By increasing our capacity to generate electricity from the sun, we can also insulate our country from rate changes in international energy markets.

#6 Develop jobs and assist your regional economy

According to The Solar Structure, the solar market included tasks at a rate nearly 12 times faster than the total U.S. economy in 2015, representing 1.2 percent of all tasks in the country. This development is anticipated to continue. Since 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 a terrific way to reduce your carbon footprint. Structures are responsible for 38 percent of all carbon emissions in the U.S., and going solar can significantly decrease that number. A typical domestic photovoltaic panel system will get rid of three to four lots of carbon emissions each year-- the equivalent of planting over 100 trees annually.

#8 Show your commitment to sustainability

Sustainability and corporate social obligation are essential parts of an organization's culture and worths. They also produce bottom line outcomes. Progressively, consumers and neighborhoods are acknowledging and rewarding companies that choose to operate responsibly. Businesses are discovering that "green" qualifications are a powerful motorist of customer purchasing choices, creating goodwill and improving service outcomes.

#9 Start Conserving from Day 1

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

Many property owners opt to finance their solar panels with among the "pay-as-you-go" funding alternatives. This implies that a third-party company-- the solar service provider-- owns the planetary system and looks after 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 homes have access to pay-as-you-go solar.

#10. Solar is a Secure Investment

The utility companies are well-known for their varying and undependable electrical power prices. There is plainly an upward trend.

With solar panels and basic mathematics, we can compute what does it cost? electricity will be created, and most importantly, at exactly what cost, for a minimum of the next Twenty Years (fixed energy costs).

Financing

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

  • Low, fixed payments each month
  • System insurance for 20 years, including maintenance
  • Flexible end-of-term options, including system upgrade, lease extension, and free panel removal

Power Purchase Agreement (PPA)

  • We own the solar panel system
  • $0 down for installation
  • Customers only pay for the solar energy that they use

Purchase

  • Customer pays for the system upfront and owns the system
  • System monitoring and maintenance for 20 years
  • Receive 30% federal tax credit
  • See a return on investment within 7-10 years

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

Alternative Energy Thesis?
I Need Help Coming Up With A Thesis Statement Regarding Alternative Energy Being Implemented As Our Dominate Sources Of Energy Rather Than Nuclear And Fossil Fuels. Any Advice Would Be Much Appreciated. Thanks!

Go here:
From Scientific American magazine Jan 2008

http://www.sciam.com/article.cfm?id=a-so...

A proposal to convert U.S. electric grid to 65% solar by 2050 and almost 100% by 2100
Using concentrating photovoltaic and concentrating solar thermal power plants in the U.S. southwest.


Solar panels work almost anywhere. They just need photons, even diffuse photons on cloudy days is enough. Sure sunnier is better but they are practical over a fairly wide range.
The efficiency is up to 20% now at the best, and there are new thin film solar cells and panels that are cheaper to make. The power plants, I mentioned, work much better in a really sunny climate, like our southwest.
Green Wombat

has a bunch of articles about the companies involved and the plants in California already running, being built, and under study. Pilot plants were built in the 80s and 90s and are putting out 350 megawatts. All the proposed and okayed plants in California add up to 2.6 gigawatts.
From 175 megawatts at a plant to be built near San Luis Obispo and a couple of 400 and 500 megawatt ones in the Mojave and two proposed plants of up to 800 and 900 megawatts each

They will be much bigger than the pilot plants. More should follow. Two of the companies are already building factories to mass produce the parts for the plants. For comparison; San Francisco could be powered by 1 gigawatt. Hoover Dam 2 gigawatt
medium size nuclear plant 2 gigawatt.

to see what oil really cost. http://www.setamericafree.org/saf_hidden...
benefits of solar vs oil would be a good topic.

If There Is So Much Unused Oil In Alaska?
It Seems The Reason Bush Said We Weren'T Going To Mess With The Oil In Alaska Was To Save It For Future Generations... Yet We Are Researching New Means Of Energy (Solar, Hydrogen, Etc.) Since It Is Clear That We Will Likely Be Driving Hydrogen Or Electric Powered Cars In The Future, Why Not Harvest The Oil In Alaska?

Some people see all energy options in some kind of good-versus-evil opera, and to them, oil energy is Evil. That's all. From any reasonable perspective, we should use it. What we're doing to the environment by NOT using it is having other countries drill the wells and pump the oil, those being countries that would gladly pave a rainforest without remorse if they thought it would save them a buck just today, i.e. countries that will make quite a sloppy mess getting the oil from the ground to us. Not to mention that these are mostly countries (e.g. Saudi Arabia) that we don't really need to be funding.

What'S The Pros And Cons Of Solar Energy Versus Wind Energy?
I'M Planning On Building A Business. What Would Be The Advantage Of Using Solar Cells Or Windmills To Produce The Power, Or At Least To Keep The Cost Of Electrical Power Down? The Facility Will Be In The Midwest And Will Be Opened Year Round Thru Four Seasons.

Ideally you could install what is called an hybrid system.
It is a combination of solar panels and wind turbine and its working fine.
The turbine will run 24 hours and the solar panels will produce electricity during the day.

Let'S Talk About The Us Energy Policy?
There Is No Liberal Or Conservative Slant To This Question...Democrats, We Have To Face The Fact That Our Party Has Given Into The Extreme Environmentalists, Those Who Favor Artificially Raising Gas Pump Prices (Through Taxes Mostly) To Be On Par With The Rest Of The World. That Does Two Things: It Forces Conservation (Not Entirely A Bad Thing) And Makes Alternative Energy Sources Look More Attractive. In The Meantime We Are Still Sucking Gas As A Nation And Sending Over $1 Billion Per Day To Oil Producing Countries, Many Of Whom Are Our Enemies And Would Like To See Us Dead. (Apparently Including A Guy From Canada On Ya Today) There Is A Solution To High Gas Prices And Protecting Our National Security. It Is Natural Gas. T Boone Pickens Presented (Pre-Obama) A Plan To Greatly Reduce The Use Of Oil By Converting Most Semi Trucks To Natural Gas. Since They Tend To Follow The Major Interstates, It Wouldn'T Be Too Costly To Build (Or Convert Existing) Gas Stations To Natural Gas Dispensing. There Are 5 Million Trucks On The Road, And If Just Half Were Converted It Would Save $125 Billion Per Year In Gasoline. One Issue Is &Quot;Fracking&Quot; And The Means Of Getting Natural Gas Out Of The Ground Safely. If You Ever Travel To Wyoming, You Will See That The Gas Is Practically Coming Out By Itself. The West Has Tons Of It, Enough For Something Like 140 Years. I'D Like To Hear People'S Comments About This. It Seems Like The Easy And Sensible Solution To Our Energy Problems To Me.

When you think of how much energy a massive country like the United States uses, I do not think there is one magic bullet. I am willing to discuss natural gas, wind, solar, nuclear, hydroelectric, etc.
