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 homeowner to utilize the sun to power everyday life: running your ac system, washing clothes, watching TV, cooking supper. All while lowering your carbon footprint, and without burning nonrenewable fuel sources or putting a strain on the electrical grid. And while the environmental advantages of solar power are substantial, lots of homeowners find that the convenience, distinct features, and expense savings of owning a solar power system are much more attractive.

Top Ten Advantages of Solar Energy

#1 Drastically lower and even remove your electrical bills

Whether you're a house owner, organization, or nonprofit, electrical power costs can comprise a large part of your monthly expenses. With a photovoltaic panel system, you'll generate complimentary power for your system's whole 25+ year lifecycle. Even if you do not produce One Hundred Percent of the energy you consume, solar will decrease your energy expenses and you'll still save a great deal of cash.

#2 Make 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 standard investments like stocks and bonds. Thanks to considerable electricity bill savings, the average American homeowner pays off their solar panel system in seven to eight years and sees an ROI of 20 percent or more.

#3 Safeguard against increasing energy costs

One of the most clear cut benefits of solar panels is the ability to hedge energy costs. In the previous 10 years, property electrical power prices have actually gone up by an average of 3 percent annually. By purchasing a solar energy system now, you can fix your electrical power rate and secure against unforeseeable boosts in electrical energy costs. If you're an organisation or property owner with fluctuating money circulation, going solar likewise assists you better forecast and handle your costs.

#4 Increase your house worth

Several research studies have actually discovered that homes geared up with solar energy systems have greater home worths and sell quicker than non-solar houses. Appraisers are significantly taking solar installations into factor to consider as they value homes at the time of a sale, and as property buyers become more educated about solar, demand for residential or commercial properties equipped 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 independence in the United States. By increasing our capability to produce electrical energy from the sun, we can likewise insulate our nation from cost changes in international energy markets.

#6 Develop jobs and help your local economy

According to The Solar Foundation, the solar market added tasks at a rate almost 12 times faster than the general U.S. economy in 2015, representing 1.2 percent of all tasks in the nation. This growth is expected to continue. Because solar-related tasks tend to be higher paying and can not be contracted out, they are a substantial contributor to the U.S. economy.

#7 Secure the environment

Solar is a great way to lower your carbon footprint. Structures are responsible for 38 percent of all carbon emissions in the U.S., and going solar can significantly decrease that number. A normal domestic solar panel system will get rid of three to four lots of carbon emissions each year-- the equivalent of planting over 100 trees every year.

#8 Show your commitment to sustainability

Sustainability and business social responsibility are essential parts of a company's culture and values. They also produce bottom line outcomes. Significantly, customers and neighborhoods are recognizing and rewarding companies that opt to operate properly. Businesses are finding that "green" credentials are a powerful chauffeur of customer acquiring choices, developing goodwill and enhancing company results.

#9 Start Conserving from Day 1

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

Lots of property owners choose to fund their photovoltaic panels with one of the "pay-as-you-go" funding choices. This suggests that a third-party company-- the solar supplier-- owns the solar system and takes care of installation, maintenance, monitoring and repairs. You merely pay the solar company for electrical power-- less than you would've paid the utility 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 companies are well-known for their fluctuating and undependable electricity costs. There is plainly an upward trend.

With solar panels and basic math, we can calculate just how much electrical energy will be created, and most significantly, at exactly what rate, for a minimum of the next Twenty Years (repaired energy expenses).

Frequently Asked Questions

What Do Solar Panel Technician Do?
Its For A Power Point. What Do They Do,What Degree Or Training They Need & Salary. Help Please

Solar Energy Technicians Jobs:
These technicians install, maintain, operate, and test equipment and energy systems that use solar energy. Each solar energy project, from conception to installation, requires the services of many technicians with various skills. Some technicians are construction craft workers, such as plumbers, carpenters, roofers, and sheet metal workers, who install or repair solar energy systems. Others work for architects or engineers, assisting them in the design of solar energy equipment and buildings. Sometimes systems are integrated into new buildings as they are constructed. Older buildings are also renovated to use solar energy equipment.

A solar energy technician may help construct and install active systems, which require solar collectors, concentrators, pumps, and fans. A technician may also help install passive systems, which rely on the best use of windows and insulation to absorb and reflect solar radiation for heating and cooling. Another type of solar energy system uses mirrors to absorb and concentrate the sun's radiation and convert it to heat. A fluid circulates among the mirrors collecting the heat and then transfers it to a central boiler or steam turbine, which generates the electricity.

Degree/Training Needed:
Many workers in the solar energy field are experienced construction trade workers who have completed an apprenticeship program. They have received special training in solar energy technology through programs offered by trade associations and by vocational schools and community colleges. Such programs, which last from several weeks to a year, usually offer a certificate of completion. Courses include hands-on system installation, system maintenance, and retro-fitting
A solar energy technician checks solar panels. High school graduates who want to install or repair solar systems take these training courses to get started in the field. They may also have to apprentice in one of the construction trades. On-the-job training is another possibility.

Those who are interested in the design, planning, or research aspects of solar energy should enter a community college or two-year vocational school program leading to an associate degree. Such programs provide practical and theoretical courses, including math, science, photovoltaics, solar-thermal systems, and solar architecture. Students who want professional engineering training can transfer some of the credits.

Salary:
Salaries vary widely. Most solar energy technicians earn between $18,000 and $40,000 per year, depending on education, geographical location, and type of position. Technicians who are employed by large companies usually receive benefits, including health insurance and paid vacations and holidays.

Can You Have Solar Panels Installed To Where You Pay No One A Monthly Fee For Anything?
Simply Free Energy, Besides Paying For The Equipment. I Want To Also Know If It Could Be Self-Sustainable.

Mpfffffff.....

A few things:

Running your entire house from solar panels requires a massive installation and battery storage for those times when there is no sun (night, rain, snow, whatever). Effectively, the installation will need to be at least three times larger than the house peak load. If you have a small house and few electrical requirements that is one thing. But if you cook, heat, cool and make hot water with electricity that is entirely something else.

The typical solar panel gives very roughly 15 watts per square foot (150w/square meter), so you would calculate the amount of power you need at peak load (water heater + stove + heat), derive the number of square feet to make that peak, multiply it times three and you would have the area required. If you can control and limit your load at some arbitrary level, use that.

So, assume that you want to be able to heat or cool and cook at the same time, run a refrigerator, have some light, but you can restrict your hot water use and other appliance use to times when you are not cooking. A stove will use about 8800 watts of power. A refrigerator will use about 800 watts. Heating/cooling in say.... six rooms in a moderate climate will use about 18,000 watts.
800 + 18,000 + 8,800 = 27,600. Divide that by 15. That comes to 1840 square feet. Multiply that times three - that comes to 5,520 square feet of solar cells in order to create a self-sustaining system. That is the equivalent of a square 75 feet on a side.

The average cost per watt for solar power is about $4 - that is without any credits or subsidies. And you will have to add inverters and battery storage as well as the infrastructure. So, your cost for the installation will exceed US$100,000 - actually it will be very close to $150,000 when all is said and done. Deduct any credits and subsidies applicable for your final cost.

Our average power bill in Pennsylvania in an unregulated environment runs to about $140/month, or $1680/year. That works out to a payback at around 89 years - well past the expected service-life of the panels. With available subsidies and legislation pending in Harrisburg, that may be reduced to about a 25 year payback - about the life of the panels. And we would cover the entire roof + half of the rest of the property. Just not practical if the goal is to be off the grid.

How To Prepare Solar Panels?
I Need To Prepare Solar Panels For Using In Home Needs Electricity Purpose. Can Anyone Could Help Me To Know Much More About It.

Unfortunately, there isn't a way to make your own cheap and reliable photovoltaic (solar electric) panels today. Be cautious of sites that suggest you can power your entire house with just $200 of homemade panels. Here is an analysis: http://www.nlcpr.com/Deceptions6.php

You could make your own solar water heater, and poasibly save money that way.

You could pay a professional to install solar panels for you, and it might actually save money in the long run, depending on where you live. But the up-front investment is usually on the order of $10,000.

What Is The Diffenence In The Way Sunpower And First Solar Make Solar Panels? Which Is Better?

Sunpower is a conventional crystalline silicon cell, except with contacts all on the back. These are the most efficient cells widely available commercially. However, Sunpower panels are generally more expensive per watt than other silicon panels.

First Solar is a Cadmium Telluride thin film, theoretically, a lower cost per watt. Per unit area, it's less efficient than any crystalline silicon panel. The general public cannot buy their product.

Neither of these companies is making very much money, and with current economic conditions, I would not be surprised to see losses for both. First Solar has the distinction of being low cost, and having an actual product - something that all the thin-film startups do not.

I don't find the price of either company's stock attractive at present, if that's what you're looking for.

What Are Some Unique Ways In Which Solar Panels Can Be Used?
I Have A Tech Project In Which I Have To Pick A Recent Technology( I Chose Solar Panels) And Think Of How It Can Be Applied To A Different Technology/Purpose. The Different Technology Has To Be Something That Has Not Been Invented Before. ( Like I Cant Do Solar Cooking Cause We Already Have That) Any Ideas??! Thanks!

With the evolution of solar energy and its various forms of utilizing it, the energy has gained massive popularity. This energy is the most famous renewable energy as it is available in vast quantity and its available all time. The energy is viewed to be the best alternative energy to other conventional sources of energy. This energy is mostly utilized using solar panels which are used in arrays that form a grid like structure to harness the solar energy. These solar panels are readily available in market and can be easily used to harness the solar energy effectively. There are plenty of ways these solar panels can be used to convert the solar energy into electrical energy but only few of them are considered to be the best ones as they generate electricity in higher quantity.

So here is a list of seven creative ways to use solar panels to harness the most out of solar energy.

1. Solar powered stadium
2. Solar powered artificial plant
3. Solar paint
4. Solar powered desert structure
5. Solar sunflower field
6. Lunar cubit solar pyramids
7. Solar powered airplane
