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 everyday life: running your ac system, cleaning clothing, viewing TV, cooking dinner. All while minimizing your carbon footprint, and without burning fossil fuels or putting a pressure on the electrical grid. And while the environmental benefits of solar power are considerable, lots of homeowners find that the benefit, special features, and expense savings of owning a solar power system are a lot more enticing.

Top 10 Benefits of Solar Energy

#1 Drastically minimize or perhaps remove your electric costs

Whether you're a house owner, company, or not-for-profit, electrical energy expenses can comprise a big portion of your monthly expenditures. With a solar 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 consume, solar will lower your utility expenses and you'll still conserve a lot of money.

#2 Make a great return on your investment

Photovoltaic panels aren't an expenditure-- they're one of the best methods to invest, with returns measuring up to those of more traditional financial investments like stocks and bonds. Thanks to substantial electrical energy expense cost savings, the average American property owner settles their photovoltaic panel system in seven to eight years and sees an ROI of 20 percent or more.

#3 Protect against rising energy costs

One of the most clear cut advantages of photovoltaic panels is the capability to hedge energy prices. In the previous 10 years, property electrical energy rates have gone up by an average of three percent annually. By investing in a solar energy system now, you can repair your electrical power rate and secure against unforeseeable boosts in electrical power costs. If you're a service or house owner with changing capital, going solar also assists you better projection and manage your expenses.

#4 Boost your residential or commercial property worth

Numerous studies have discovered that houses equipped with solar energy systems have greater home worths and offer faster than non-solar houses. Appraisers are increasingly taking solar installations into factor to consider as they value homes at the time of a sale, and as homebuyers become more informed about solar, demand for residential or commercial properties geared up with photovoltaic panel systems will continue to grow.

#5 Increase U.S. energy independence

The sun is a near-infinite source of energy and a crucial element of accomplishing energy independence in the United States. By increasing our capacity to create electrical power from the sun, we can also insulate our nation from rate variations in global energy markets.

#6 Develop jobs and help your regional economy

Inning accordance with The Solar Structure, the solar industry included jobs at a rate almost 12 times faster than the overall U.S. economy in 2015, representing 1.2 percent of all jobs in the country. This development is anticipated to continue. Due to the fact that solar-related tasks tend to be greater paying and can not be contracted out, they are a substantial contributor to the U.S. economy.

#7 Protect the environment

Solar is a fantastic way to lower your carbon footprint. Buildings are responsible for 38 percent of all carbon emissions in the U.S., and going solar can considerably reduce that number. A common property solar panel system will get rid of 3 to 4 lots of carbon emissions each year-- the equivalent of planting over 100 trees yearly.

#8 Show your dedication to sustainability

Sustainability and corporate social duty are important parts of a company's culture and values. They likewise produce bottom line results. Significantly, customers and neighborhoods are recognizing and rewarding organisations that opt to operate responsibly. Organisations are discovering that "green" credentials are a powerful driver of consumer purchasing choices, producing goodwill and enhancing 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.

Many property owners opt to fund their photovoltaic panels with one of the "pay-as-you-go" financing choices. This implies that a third-party business-- the solar supplier-- owns the solar system and looks after installation, upkeep, tracking and repairs. You merely pay the solar supplier for electricity-- less than you would've paid the energy company.

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

#10. Solar is a Secure Investment

The utility companies are notorious for their changing and undependable electrical power costs. There is plainly an upward pattern.

With solar panels and easy mathematics, we can calculate what does it cost? electrical energy will be created, and most importantly, at exactly what rate, for a minimum of the next 20 years (fixed energy expenses).

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.

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

How Is Drilling For Oil Damaging To The Environment?
I Care About Keeping The Environment But I Know We Need Oil And At The Same Time I Think We Should Look Into Electricity And Solar And Wind And Coal. I Know There Are Ways To Drill On Land That Doesn'T Damage The Environment. I Just Want To Know How It'S Done? How Is Drilling Bad To The World? How Can We Drill With Caution? What Are The Different Ways And Why Doesn'T The Oil Companys Use These Methods To Be Green? I'D Like Done Facts From Both Sides And Storys About How Bad Oil Companys Are To The Environment And How They Mistreat There Workers. Thank You And Please Try Hard Not To Use The Bp Oil Spill Story.

There is simply NO way to drill risk free. Even the most sophisticated and carefully thought out regulations are still subject to human error and chance.

The companies that drill constantly fight or even violate regulations that would at least reduce risk in order to save money, both to increase their own profit and since any more money spent would be passed onto the customer in the form of higher prices/taxes

Drilling for oil creates pollution in two ways, the most prevalent being air pollution and smog through the burning of fossil fuels. This leads to climate change, disrupted weather patterns and such.

The second and far more devastating are oil spills (like the one in the gulf) the natural chemicals in crude oil destroy any life it touches, sticks to plant and animal life, seeps into soil, contaminates water and can affect the food chain all the way up.

The only way to truly eliminate the risk of oil drilling is to use less of it and begin changing over our energy methods to cleaner technologies such as solar, wind, hydrogen, or hydroelectric

How Is Solar Powered Energy Used In The North ?
First Of All I Need Help In My Science Project. :| And Second Of All Im Just Wondering That In Like Northern Parts Of The World How Is Solar Powered Energy Efficeint And How Excatly Does It Work ?

Well, it depends how far North you are talking. If you are talking about Alaska, the solar energy would be absorbed during the months when Alaska is in total light. Since the sun is not as strong in Alaska as it is in other places of the world, the energy would take longer to be absorbed at times, but it would still be collected. Believe it or not, even when it is cloudy outside in places, solar energy is still collected.

Do All Solar Powered Calculators Store Energy?
I Have A Calculator That Only Works With Light, But Another Solar Powered One That Works Without Light. Whats Could Be The Problem

The one that works only with light is truly solar-powered.

I have taken apart some cheap "dual-powered" calculators that have an actual battery in them. Those had fake solar cells, and actually ran only off the battery. Look carefully on your calculator and see if there is a place for a little button cell.

From the technical standpoint, it would be possible to charge a small capacitor from a solar cell in a calculator, but that would have little practical value. Even weak indoor lighting is enough to power a calculator, and if the lighting were too dim, you'd have trouble reading the display, anyway. In normal usage, a little button battery lasts for a very long time, possibly years, so there's little to be gained by going to a recharging scheme.

Could Nano Batteries W/Lots Of Solar Panels Be Placed Around The Sun Be Used As Energy For Light Speed Travel?

yes, if you were making light its self travel.

it is not possible to get a ship to go as fast as the speed of light without some how using infinite energy.

just because light is being collected, doesn't mean it can make anything travel at the speed of light.

Are There Resources In Our Solar System Worth Mining Or Harvesting?
Besides On Earth

Depends what you mean by 'worth mining or harvesting'. Right now, the cost of transporting any kind of material from some other part of the Solar System far outweighs the value of the material itself for any practical purpose (right now it is only done for scientific and/or sentimental purposes). However, if you wanted to fly a spaceship to another object in the Solar System and build a base there, there could easily be useful materials present there to support many aspects of the base, including rock to build buildings and radiation shielding out of, water ice to melt down and drink, and soil which could be used to grow plants after some nutrients are added. Furthermore, if you had the technology to make space travel much cheaper than it is now, there are a few resources available elsewhere in the Solar System that might be useful on Earth. The main one is helium-3, which is present on the Moon in much greater quantities than it is on Earth and could conceivably be used in certain types of fusion power plants (although unfortunately we don't have any working fusion power plants yet). The Moon also has uranium which could be used in fission power plants, although the uranium is much heavier (and thus harder to transport) for its energy output than the He3 is. Finally, there is another interesting energy source, sunlight, which is of course present in larger quantities closer to the Sun; it might be useful to build a space-based satellite near the Sun and have it collect sunlight and shoot it back to us in the form of a laser beam. That is rather speculative, though, and with foreseeable technology the energy lost in that process would outweigh the benefit of collecting closer to the Sun.
