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 daily life: running your ac system, washing clothing, seeing TELEVISION, cooking supper. All while reducing your carbon footprint, and without burning nonrenewable fuel sources or putting a stress on the electrical grid. And while the environmental benefits of solar power are considerable, many residents find that the benefit, distinct functions, and cost savings of owning a solar power system are even more enticing.

Top Ten Benefits of Solar Energy

#1 Dramatically lower or even eliminate your electrical costs

Whether you're a house owner, business, or nonprofit, electricity costs can make up a big portion of your regular monthly expenditures. With a photovoltaic panel system, you'll generate totally free power for your system's entire 25+ year lifecycle. Even if you don't produce 100 percent of the energy you consume, solar will decrease your energy expenses and you'll still conserve a lot of money.

#2 Earn a great return on your investment

Photovoltaic panels aren't an expenditure-- they are among the best ways to invest, with returns measuring up to those of more standard financial investments like stocks and bonds. Thanks to substantial electrical energy bill cost savings, the typical 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 solar panels is the capability to hedge energy prices. In the previous 10 years, residential electrical power costs have increased by approximately 3 percent each year. By purchasing a solar energy system now, you can repair your electrical power rate and protect versus unforeseeable increases in electrical energy costs. If you're a business or homeowner with fluctuating capital, going solar also assists you much better forecast and manage your expenditures.

#4 Boost your house worth

Multiple studies have found that houses geared up with solar energy systems have higher home worths and sell faster than non-solar homes. 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 informed about solar, demand for properties geared up with solar panel systems will continue to grow.

#5 Boost U.S. energy independence

The sun is a near-infinite source of energy and a key element of accomplishing energy self-reliance in the United States. By increasing our capability to generate electrical power from the sun, we can likewise insulate our country from cost changes in global energy markets.

#6 Create jobs and assist your local economy

According to The Solar Structure, the solar market added tasks at a rate nearly 12 times faster than the overall U.S. economy in 2015, representing 1.2 percent of all jobs in the country. This growth is expected to continue. Because solar-related tasks have the tendency to be higher paying and can not be outsourced, they are a significant contributor to the United States economy.

#7 Protect the environment

Solar is an excellent method to lower your carbon footprint. Buildings are responsible for 38 percent of all carbon emissions in the United States, and going solar can considerably reduce that number. A common domestic solar panel system will eliminate 3 to 4 lots of carbon emissions each year-- the equivalent of planting over 100 trees each year.

#8 Demonstrate your commitment to sustainability

Sustainability and corporate social responsibility are necessary elements of an organization's culture and worths. They also produce bottom line outcomes. Increasingly, customers and neighborhoods are recognizing and rewarding businesses that decide to run properly. Businesses are discovering that "green" qualifications are a powerful driver of customer buying decisions, creating goodwill and improving organisation results.

#9 Start Conserving from Day 1

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

Numerous property owners opt to fund their solar panels with among the "pay-as-you-go" funding choices. This indicates that a third-party company-- the solar service provider-- owns the solar system and looks after installation, upkeep, tracking and repair works. You just pay the solar service provider for electricity-- less than you would've paid the utility company.

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

#10. Solar is a Secure Investment

The energy companies are notorious for their changing and unreliable electricity rates. There is plainly an upward pattern.

With photovoltaic panels and easy math, we can compute what does it cost? electrical energy will be created, and most importantly, at exactly what price, for a minimum of the next 20 years (repaired energy costs).

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.
