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.

"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 power makes it possible for homeowner to use the sun to power everyday life: running your air conditioning system, washing clothes, viewing TV, cooking supper. All while lowering your carbon footprint, and without burning fossil fuels or putting a pressure on the electrical grid. And while the ecological benefits of solar power are substantial, lots of home owners find that the convenience, unique functions, and expense savings of owning a solar power system are much more alluring.

Top Ten Advantages of Solar Energy

#1 Drastically reduce or even remove your electrical costs

Whether you're a house owner, company, or nonprofit, electrical energy expenses can make up a large portion of your regular monthly expenses.

Solar panels aren't an expenditure-- they're one of the very best methods to invest, with returns measuring up to those of more traditional investments like stocks and bonds. Thanks to substantial electrical power costs savings, the typical American homeowner pays off their photovoltaic panel system in 7 to 8 years and sees an ROI of 20 percent or more.

#3 Protect against increasing energy costs

Among the most clear cut advantages of photovoltaic panels is the capability to hedge utility prices. In the past 10 years, residential electricity prices have gone up by approximately 3 percent annually. By buying a solar energy system now, you can fix your electrical energy rate and safeguard versus unforeseeable increases in electrical power costs. If you're a business or homeowner with rising and falling money flow, going solar likewise helps you much better projection and handle your costs.

Inning accordance with The Solar Structure, the solar market added tasks at a rate almost 12 times faster than the total U.S. economy in 2015, representing 1.2 percent of all jobs in the nation. This development is expected to continue. Due to the fact that solar-related jobs have the tendency to be greater paying and can not be contracted out, they are a substantial contributor to the United States economy.

Solar is a great method to lower your carbon footprint. Structures are accountable for 38 percent of all carbon emissions in the United States, and going solar can significantly decrease that number.

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

Numerous house owners decide to fund their photovoltaic panels with one of the "pay-as-you-go" financing options. This means that a third-party company-- the solar provider-- owns the planetary system and takes care of installation, upkeep, monitoring and repairs. You merely pay the solar company for electrical energy-- less than you would've paid the energy business.

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

#10. Solar is a Secure Investment

The utility business are well-known for their fluctuating and undependable electricity prices. There is clearly an upward pattern.

Frequently Asked Questions

How Can I Make A Solar Panel?
I Want To Go Green And Learn How To Make A Solar Panel. I Have Always Thought Of Going Green, And This Is One Way I Would Like To Start. Does Anyone Know Some Websites That Can Guide Me. Thanks.

Go green. It's nice that you are trying to be conscious of the environment. I had to do a
project for a class and I learned how to build a solar panel from http://mybuyweb.com/resources.html

They helped a lot and I learned a great deal of stuff to help make this place a little greener.

Anyone Know If There Is A Solar Panel That You Can Travel With That Is Not Usb Plug In ?
I Am Heading To Nepal And Do Not Want To Lose Power On My Cameras But They Can Only Be Charged Via &Quot;Plugging In&Quot;. A Usb Connection Does Not Work. Looking For A Solar Panel To Clip To My Bag Or Carry That I Can Plug In The Charger As If Plugging In To Wall Outlet. Thanks.

Solar panels require a charge converter before it can be used by an AC source. There is no direct solar panel with built in charge converters that I know of because, when purchasing panels, you must purchase the wattage requirements of the job (this can be several panels linked), and a charge converter that will handle the 1<? panels required.

A chain of stores up here in Canada have a portable battery pack that has a solar panel to increase its charge capacity or duration, but its not something you would want to lug around for long periods of time, because is weights in about 13 lbs.

How Efficient Are Solar Panels...?

The prototype converts 33.9 percent of the sunlight that hits it into electricity, according to separate press releases from the two companies. That’s more than double the most efficient conventional photovoltaic (PV) module on the market, where performance tops out at 16 percent, Forbes magazine found late last year.

How Efficient Are Flexible Solar Panels?

I don't have a number, but in general, no one uses a flexible panel unless they are compelled to. The efficiency is lower, and my experience is that they don't last. I had one a few years ago, and it lasted less than 2 years. My rigid panels came with a 25-year performance warranty, and are still working great after 7 years.

Why Do &Quot;Green&Quot; Liberals Still Say The &Quot;Co2&Quot; Kyoto Treaty Is Good For The Environment?
The Kyoto Treaty Is Nothing But A Welfare Program For 3Rd World Countries. It Closes &Quot;Clean&Quot; Factories In Countries With Good Enviromental Laws (Like The U.S.) And Creates New &Quot;Dirty&Quot; Factories In Countries With Bad Pollution Records (Like China ). The Kyoto Treaty Is A Joke. Communist China And India Don'T Have To Follow The Treaty But They Are Able To Sell Their Pollution Credits To Clean Countries In Europe. Because Of The Kyoto Treaty, Many European Companies Could Not Operate Without Purchasing Pollution Credits From 3Rd World Countries. And If Those Same European Companies Were Located In China Or India Then The Companies Would Be Able To Pollute As Much As They Wanted To. China Sells Pollution Credits To Spain For $375 Million Http://Www.Worldwatch.Org/Features/Chinawatch/Stories/20060123-1

Not only doesn't China have to follow it..In a few years they will far out pollute us...
