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 clothes, enjoying TV, cooking supper. All while reducing your carbon footprint, and without burning fossil fuels or putting a stress on the electrical grid. And while the ecological advantages of solar power are substantial, lots of homeowners discover that the convenience, unique features, and expense savings of owning a solar power system are even more alluring.

Top 10 Advantages of Solar Energy

#1 Considerably minimize or even eliminate your electric bills

Whether you're a property owner, business, or nonprofit, electrical power costs can make up a large part of your regular monthly expenses. With a photovoltaic panel system, you'll produce free power for your system's whole 25+ year lifecycle. Even if you do not produce 100 percent of the energy you take in, solar will reduce your energy costs and you'll still save a great deal of money.

#2 Earn a terrific return on your investment

Solar panels aren't an expenditure-- 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 significant electrical energy bill savings, the typical American house owner pays off their photovoltaic panel system in 7 to eight years and sees an ROI of 20 percent or more.

#3 Safeguard versus rising energy expenses

Among the most clear cut advantages of solar panels is the ability to hedge utility costs. In the previous 10 years, domestic electricity costs have actually gone up by approximately 3 percent every year. By purchasing a solar energy system now, you can fix your electrical energy rate and secure against unforeseeable boosts in electrical energy expenses. If you're an organisation or homeowner with ever-changing capital, going solar likewise helps you better projection and handle your costs.

#4 Increase your home worth

Numerous research studies have actually discovered that houses geared up with solar energy systems have higher property values and offer more quickly than non-solar houses. Appraisers are increasingly taking solar installations into factor to consider as they value houses at the time of a sale, and as property buyers become more educated about solar, need for homes geared up 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 key element of achieving energy self-reliance in the United States. By increasing our capacity to generate electrical energy from the sun, we can also insulate our nation from rate changes in worldwide energy markets.

#6 Create jobs and help your regional economy

Inning accordance with The Solar Structure, the solar industry included jobs at a rate nearly 12 times faster than the overall U.S. economy in 2015, representing 1.2 percent of all jobs in the nation. This growth is anticipated to continue. Due to the fact that solar-related jobs tend to be higher paying and can not be outsourced, they are a considerable contributor to the U.S. economy.

#7 Protect the environment

Solar is a great method to decrease your carbon footprint. Structures are responsible for 38 percent of all carbon emissions in the United States, and going solar can substantially reduce that number. A normal residential solar panel system will eliminate 3 to four lots of carbon emissions each year-- the equivalent of planting over 100 trees annually.

#8 Show your dedication to sustainability

Sustainability and business social obligation are very important parts of an organization's culture and worths. They also produce bottom line results. Increasingly, consumers and neighborhoods are recognizing and rewarding services that decide to run responsibly. Companies are finding that "green" credentials are a powerful motorist of customer getting choices, creating goodwill and enhancing business results.

#9 Start Conserving from Day 1

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

Many house owners opt to fund their solar panels with among the "pay-as-you-go" funding choices. This implies that a third-party business-- the solar service provider-- owns the solar system and looks after installation, maintenance, monitoring and repair works. You just pay the solar company for electricity-- less than you would've paid the energy company.

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 notorious for their varying and unreliable electrical power rates. There is plainly an upward trend.

With solar panels and easy math, we can calculate what does it cost? electrical energy will be generated, and most significantly, at what rate, for at least the next 20 years (fixed energy costs).

Frequently Asked Questions

What Are The Implications Of Requiring Builders And Designers Of New Buildings To Install Solar Panels?

Short run: the price of a house will increase an may out price some people trying to buy houses. The price of solar panel and installing them on existing building will increase perhaps out pricing some who want to install them.
Long run: decrease energy consumption and lowering the price of energy compared to what it would have been without the regulation. May spur investment in panel production and technology lowering LR cost of installation perhaps leading to more existing building having panels but farther out in the future. May pull investment from other alternative energy sources slowing technological advancements in them.

A Few Questions For Someone Who Knows Much About Solar Panels?
I Have Been Looking Into Solar Panels For A Small House That I Am Building. It Would Be Great If I Could Nix A Furnace, And Use Solar Panels To Heat The House With Electric. The House Is Going To Be Less Than 1000 Square Feet. I Have Tried Looking On Google But Did Not Find Much. I Am In Canada. Here Is What I Am Looking For - How Much Do You Think I Can Expect To Spend On Solar Panels? - How Long Do They Last? - Would They Eliminate An Electricity Bill All Together?

Hi this is just my personal opinion but I think that currently solar panels are not advanced enough to really do any good. In the future maybe but right now I don't see you really saving anything. The only reason why you would use solar is to help the environment. The initial cost of getting all the equipment is going to be so much that it will take years to pay for itself. Then when it does pay for itself some parts will need to be replaced costing more money. Right now I don't think it's a good idea. But maybe in the future. Again this is just my opinion.

How Do You Get Electricity In A Rainy Day If You Have Solar Panels?
I Am Working On A Project And I Have To Build A House With Solar Panels. My Teacher Asked Me How Would I Get Solar Energy If It Is Rainy Or Cloudy? I Looked It Up But Didn'T Understand. Please Help Me!!

Solar panels convert light energy into electrical energy with the photovoltaic process. They work best when perpendicular to the incoming sunlight and with no clouds in bright sunlight. They will work at reduced efficiency if there are clouds or rain, but as long as its not dark, they will still produce "some" electricity.

That is one of the real problems with solar energy, as we expect to have electricity available on demand, regardless of day/night cycles and atmospheric conditions. Storing electricity is very inefficient, so we need hydro, nuclear,or fossil fuel energy to provide firm "on demand" energy as a base load.

If Solar Panels Are So Good, Why Do We Sell Them To Silly Americans While Building Coal Plants For Ourselves?

If the argument is that the Solyndra loan was oversold as a job creation engine, maybe that’s true. But that’s not the argument that conservatives want to make. They want to claim that green energy investments must be ended because they cannot possibly work. With a perspective like that, obviously so. But the truth is that the Solyndra bankruptcy represents 1.3% of the total green energy loans put out by the Energy Department. Solar energy, far from being doomed, is booming, and solar PV was even a net exporter to China last year. If there were a level playing field and China wasn’t subsidizing it’s solar industry across platforms at 20 times the level of the US, or if the US met that challenge with a similar level of investment, it wouldn’t be a contest. But there’s still plenty of room for a solar and greentech space in the US, regardless of one company’s troubles.

Net exporter? Yeah!

Does The Heat Bounce Back From Solar Panel? Will It Create More Global Warming If All Roofs Are Solar Paneled?
Imagine If You Put A Mirror Under The Sun, It Heats Up And The Light Is Reflected Back. How Is Solar Panel Different From This Concept? Does It Uses A Special Material So The Heat Will Not Bounce Back To The Atmosphere And Make Our Earth More Warmer Causing More Global Warming And Helping To Melt Down The Iceberg In North And South Pole? Are You A Genius? Answer My Question :P....

don k is right. except solar thermal panels absorb heat to, of course, to heat water. to even think that solar panels heat up so much to attribute to global warming has to be the most idoitic, clueless question i have ever read. we are all dumber to have read it. does your hot breath cause global warming? It gets hot under your arm pits and behind your legs, must be melting ice bergs with that body heat, right?
