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 homeowner to use the sun to power everyday life: running your a/c, washing clothing, viewing TV, cooking supper. All while decreasing your carbon footprint, and without burning nonrenewable fuel sources or putting a strain on the electrical grid.

Photovoltaic panels aren't a cost-- they're one of the best methods to invest, with returns measuring up to those of more conventional investments like stocks and bonds. Thanks to considerable electrical energy costs cost savings, the average American property owner settles their solar panel system in 7 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 utility costs. In the previous 10 years, residential electricity prices have gone up by approximately three percent each year. By purchasing a solar energy system now, you can repair your electrical power rate and secure versus unpredictable boosts in electrical energy expenses. If you're a business or house owner with fluctuating capital, going solar also helps you much better projection and handle your costs.

Several research studies have actually found that houses equipped with solar energy systems have greater residential or commercial property values and sell faster than non-solar houses. Appraisers are progressively taking solar setups into factor to consider as they value homes at the time of a sale, and as homebuyers end up being more educated about solar, demand for properties equipped with photovoltaic 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 accomplishing energy self-reliance in the United States. By increasing our capability to produce electrical energy from the sun, we can likewise insulate our country from price variations in worldwide energy markets.

#6 Develop jobs and help your regional economy

According to The Solar Foundation, the solar market added jobs at a rate almost 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. Because solar-related jobs have the tendency to be greater paying and can not be outsourced, they are a significant factor to the United States economy.

Lots of property owners choose to finance their photovoltaic panels with among the "pay-as-you-go" funding alternatives. This indicates that a third-party business-- the solar company-- owns the solar system and looks after installation, maintenance, monitoring and repairs. You simply pay the solar service provider for electricity-- less than you would've paid the utility company.

Frequently Asked Questions

Solar Panels At School..How Can They Help?
How Can Solar Panels Improve The School Environment?

Get off the grid, then the Coal Burning electric company makes less pollution.

Little Solar Panel Question?
I Have A Mini 3 Led Mini Torch Light That Is Powered By A Battery Charged By A Tiny 9 Cell Solar Panel. Can I Remove The Little Button Battery And Connect It To A 3.6V Old Cell Phone Battery, Would It Charge The Cell Phone Battery Instead Of The Button Battery?

Considering how small the panel is,
it probably wouldn't do any good at all for a phone battery.



As for the idea of using solar energy to charge a cell phone:

There is always a good reason why an accessory
isn't offered for a particular item, such as a cell phone.
The most common reason is that it wouldn't work.

Price And Energy Production Of Solar Panels?
I Have Been Thinking About Getting Solar Panels For My House. What Do You Think I Should Get? Companies? Prices? I Also Have Another Question. How Much Energy Can A Small Solar Panel Produce?

A small panel will not produce much power. When people put solar electric panels on their house with the goal of saving money, they generally put up a lot of large panels - 200 or 500 square feet worth. Its hard to save money with just one panel.

The only way to get close on how much it will cost and whether that represents a savings is to get out your electric bills for the past year, and call a local solar installer for a quote. The system on our house cost $20,000 and we got back $8,000 in incentives, so $12,000 net. It can save money, but that will be over many, many years.

How To Connect Solar Panels To Batteries?
I Have Two Solar Panels That Were Going To Be Trashed At Work. I Want To Use Them To Charge Batteries On My Rv But I Noticed They Put Out Around 20 Volts In Direct Sunlight. So I Am Wondering: -Isn'T This Way Too Much Voltage For A 12 Volt System? -Do A Need Some Sort Of A Regulator Connected To Keep Them From Overcharging?

20 volts is a common open-circuit voltage for nominal 12v panels. The panels put out about 15v at full load. If the panel puts out little enough that it takes 20 hours or more to put a full charge in the battery you can get by without a charge controller - just keep the cells topped up with distilled water. A charge controller will do a more efficient job, though. The most efficient charge controllers use what's called Maximum Power Point Technology (MPPT) which lets the panels operate at their most efficient point throughout the battery's charging cycle. Available on E-bay. The charge controller should have the same or higher wattage as the panels it controls - if you're not sure of wattage, assume that they are the same as similar area panels you find for sale.

Before buying a charge controller, connect the panels through an ammeter to a discharged battery. They may have been trashed because of damage and low output. You need at least an amp for trickle charge, 5 amps for reasonable recharge times.

Should The Uk Be Proud Of It'S Carbon Emission Levels?
We Make Practically Nothing In The Uk Any More, We Used To Churn Out All Manor Of Goods, But The Manufacturing Industry Was Destroyed By The Tories And By Way Of Making It Look Better They Crow About How Carbon Neutral We Have Become. Yet Now All The Stuff We Made Before Is Made In China, Who Don'T Care How Much Crap They Shove Into The Air, And Having Made The Goods In A Far Less Green Way Than We Did, The Carbon Is Added To Because We Have To Ship Or Fly It Across The World To Get To Our Shops. So Should We Be Proud Of The Carbon, Or Admit We Have Been Mugged Off.

You've been had. You guys will really be in trouble if a cold winter sets in. Your windmills and solar panels will not make a dent in the demand for fuel. You will wish you had all those decommissioned coal plants back in action.
The socialists and greenies risk rendering you the next Spain.
