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 house owners to utilize the sun to power everyday life: running your air conditioning unit, cleaning clothing, seeing TELEVISION, cooking dinner. All while decreasing 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, many homeowners find that the convenience, unique functions, and expense savings of owning a solar power system are even more attractive.

Top Ten Advantages of Solar Energy

#1 Considerably minimize and even remove your electrical bills

Whether you're a house owner, business, or nonprofit, electrical energy costs can make up a large part of your regular monthly expenses. With a photovoltaic panel system, you'll create free power for your system's whole 25+ year lifecycle. Even if you do not produce 100 percent of the energy you consume, solar will lower your energy expenses and you'll still conserve a lot of loan.

#2 Earn a terrific return on your investment

Solar panels aren't a cost-- they are among the finest methods to invest, with returns rivaling those of more standard investments like stocks and bonds. Thanks to considerable electrical energy bill cost savings, the typical American property owner settles their solar panel system in 7 to 8 years and sees an ROI of 20 percent or more.

#3 Secure versus increasing energy costs

Among the most clear cut benefits of photovoltaic panels is the ability to hedge utility rates. In the previous 10 years, domestic electrical energy rates have actually increased by approximately three percent yearly. By buying a solar energy system now, you can fix your electrical energy rate and safeguard against unforeseeable increases in electricity expenses. If you're a company or house owner with changing capital, going solar also helps you better forecast and handle your expenses.

#4 Boost your house value

Multiple studies have actually discovered that homes geared up with solar energy systems have higher home worths and sell quicker than non-solar homes. Appraisers are significantly taking solar installations into consideration as they value homes at the time of a sale, and as property buyers become more informed about solar, demand for properties equipped 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 attaining energy independence in the United States. By increasing our capacity to generate electrical power from the sun, we can also insulate our nation from cost fluctuations in international energy markets.

#6 Develop jobs and help your regional economy

Inning accordance with The Solar Foundation, the solar market added tasks at a rate nearly 12 times faster than the general U.S. economy in 2015, representing 1.2 percent of all tasks in the country. This development is expected to continue. Since solar-related tasks tend to be greater paying and can not be outsourced, they are a considerable factor to the U.S. economy.

#7 Safeguard the environment

Solar is a great way to lower your carbon footprint. Structures are accountable for 38 percent of all carbon emissions in the U.S., and going solar can substantially reduce that number. A normal residential photovoltaic panel system will eliminate three to 4 lots of carbon emissions each year-- the equivalent of planting over 100 trees every year.

#8 Demonstrate your commitment to sustainability

Sustainability and corporate social obligation are very important components of a company's culture and worths. They likewise produce bottom line results. Progressively, consumers and communities are recognizing and rewarding businesses that decide to run responsibly. Services are finding that "green" qualifications are an effective driver of consumer purchasing decisions, creating goodwill and enhancing business outcomes.

#9 Start Saving from Day 1

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

Lots of property owners choose to finance their solar panels with among the "pay-as-you-go" funding choices. This suggests that a third-party business-- the solar provider-- owns the solar system and takes care of setup, upkeep, monitoring and repair works. You simply pay the solar service provider for electricity-- 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 energy companies are notorious for their varying and undependable electricity prices. There is plainly an upward pattern.

With photovoltaic panels and basic math, we can determine what does it cost? electricity will be produced, and most notably, at what rate, for a minimum of the next Twenty Years (repaired 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.

Frequently Asked Questions

What Do You Think About The Future Transportation?
Electric Cars, Solar Energy Powered Cars, Flying Vehicles, Robot Controlled...What Do You Think?

Everything you mentioned exists today: electric cars, solar cars, flying cars, RC vehicles... From this we might say that the "future" is here. But these things are not everywhere. They are not popular. In an age of hype and the latest I phone we forget that the general trend is for technology to catch on slowly. It took over 30 years for the cell phone to move from a "brick" to something that could fit in a pocket.

Sometimes what is "popular" is the old technology. A "tipping point" must be reached when the technology becomes acceptable by most people. And so it is the human part of the equation that is the most limiting factor for the "future of transportation."

What Provinces In Canada Use Solar Energy?
Just Wondering, As I'Ve Only Gotten Ontario, But I'M Sure There Are More Provinces In Canada Using It.

All provinces use solar energy. In fact, every country, state, county, and province in the world uses solar energy. Anywhere where there are plants or animals uses solar energy. Plants use solar energy to grow. Animals use solar energy to see.

Why We Choose Solar Energy Compared To Other Resources Of Renewable Energy?
I Need Help For My Summer Project Please (:

Most sources of energy renewable or not are from solar energy. Biomass is solar energy captured via photosynthesis and stored chemically. Wind power is from temperature gradient in the atmosphere due to heating from the sun. Hydro is from the evaporation of sea water and the subsequent precipitation at higher elevations. Fossil fuels are the solar energy captured by photosynthesis millions of years ago and stored chemically. All of these indirect methods of harvesting solar energy are very inefficient, photosynthesis has a maximum theoretical efficiency of 6.6%, then take into account that only a small portion of a plant is used for first generation biofuels and you can see that it's only a fraction of a fraction of 1% in efficiency. Contrast that to the current photovoltaic record of 42.8% efficiency

There are a few sources of "renewable" energy that aren't from solar energy. Nuclear energy is from the decay of radioactive elements left over from the formation of the Earth. Geothermal is heat from the molten core leftover from the formation of the Earth or from the melting of the tectonic plates as they move against each other. Tidal is from the kinetic energy of Earth's rotation and that of the moon's orbit. But these tap energy reserves much smaller than that of the sun.

You'll note that none of these energy sources are perpetual so "renewable" is a bit of a misnomer. But with the exception of fossil fuel, these are the sources of energy that tap energy reserves many times greater than can be conceivably consumed by us during a reasonable expectation for the life of our civilizations. At one time fossil fuels also appeared inexhaustible compared to our energy needs but then our energy needs increased.

If you look at how much energy is available, solar energy is available in quantities of up to 90 PW, that's peta-watts, at Earth's surface. Our entire global energy consumption peaks at 15 TW so solar energy is well in excess of our energy needs while indirect solar such as biomass, wind and hydro can in way theoretically meet our energy needs by themselves. Enough solar energy falls upon the Earth in 40 minutes to provide for the entire world's energy needs for an entire year.

Why Is Tidal Energy Needed?
Tidal Energy

The world needs energy to drive industry, agriculture, transport and to heat and light our homes. Sustainable, non-polluting energy sources are desperately needed, in view of the increasing demand. Tidal energy along with solar and wind is non-polluting and sustainable.

What Are The Advantages And Possible Disadvantages Of Using Solar Energy?

Great way to save power and preserve reasources. But it may be a bit unsitely and it may not be the most efficent use of your money (I would assume solar producing sources would be hard to come by money wise because they are not mass produced as frequently, and most poeple just assume not using them will work). If your going to go for all solar power, then get power saving appliances, that way you help the solar panels that help you.
