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 air conditioner, washing clothing, seeing TELEVISION, cooking supper. All while minimizing 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, lots of property owners find that the convenience, unique features, and cost savings of owning a solar power system are even more enticing.

Top 10 Benefits of Solar Energy

#1 Drastically reduce and even remove your electrical expenses

Whether you're a house owner, service, or nonprofit, electricity expenses can comprise a large part of your regular monthly expenses. With a solar panel system, you'll create totally 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 minimize your utility costs and you'll still conserve a great deal of loan.

#2 Earn a terrific return on your financial investment

Photovoltaic panels aren't an expenditure-- they are among the very best ways to invest, with returns matching those of more standard investments like stocks and bonds. Thanks to considerable electricity costs savings, the average American homeowner settles their solar panel system in seven to eight years and sees an ROI of 20 percent or more.

#3 Secure against increasing energy costs

Among the most clear cut advantages of photovoltaic panels is the ability to hedge energy prices. In the past 10 years, property electricity costs have gone up by an average of three percent annually. By buying a solar energy system now, you can fix your electricity rate and safeguard versus unforeseeable boosts in electrical power expenses. If you're a service or house owner with rising and falling cash flow, going solar also assists you better forecast and handle your costs.

#4 Boost your property worth

Multiple research studies have discovered that houses geared up with solar energy systems have higher residential or commercial property worths and sell faster than non-solar houses. Appraisers are significantly taking solar installations into consideration as they value homes at the time of a sale, and as homebuyers end up being more informed about solar, demand for residential or commercial 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 crucial part of accomplishing energy independence in the United States. By increasing our capability to generate electrical power from the sun, we can likewise insulate our nation from price changes in worldwide energy markets.

#6 Develop jobs and assist your regional economy

According to 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 country. This growth is anticipated to continue. Since solar-related tasks have the tendency to be higher paying and can not be outsourced, they are a substantial factor to the United States economy.

#7 Safeguard the environment

Solar is a terrific method to reduce your carbon footprint. Buildings are responsible for 38 percent of all carbon emissions in the U.S., and going solar can substantially reduce that number. A normal property solar panel system will remove 3 to four lots of carbon emissions each year-- the equivalent of planting over 100 trees yearly.

#8 Demonstrate your commitment to sustainability

Sustainability and corporate social responsibility are essential parts of an organization's culture and worths. They likewise produce bottom line results. Progressively, consumers and communities are recognizing and rewarding businesses that decide to operate properly. Companies are discovering that "green" credentials are an effective motorist of customer getting choices, creating goodwill and enhancing company outcomes.

#9 Start Saving from Day 1

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

Many house owners opt to finance their solar panels with one of the "pay-as-you-go" funding choices. This implies that a third-party business-- the solar supplier-- owns the solar system and takes care of setup, upkeep, tracking and repair works. You just pay the solar provider for electrical energy-- less than you would've paid the energy business.

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

#10. Solar is a Secure Financial investment

The energy business are infamous for their fluctuating and unreliable electrical power rates. There is plainly an upward pattern.

With photovoltaic panels and easy math, we can compute how much electrical power will be created, and most significantly, at what rate, for a minimum of the next Twenty Years (repaired energy costs).

Frequently Asked Questions

How Does Collecting Coal Affect The Environment?

collecting coal affects in carbon emission and it can't be renewed.. burning it will even result in more problems causing air pollution, more fossils will be lost, when there is alternate ways to get energy apart from coal its almost impractical to use it....

like in old days it was the major source, but now solar, LPG, gasoline and many other have been discovered More over there is recent invention of bio fuels and bio cells...

collecting coal leads to loosening of soil and and unwanted deposition of carbon resulting in air and soil pollution

How Is Coal Considered A Form Of Solar Energy?
How Is Coal Considered A Form Of Solar Energy?

Coal would not normally be considered a form of solar energy, but since coal is ultimately derived from organic material, mostly wetland plants, which grew via the sun's energy, one could think of coal a form of solar energy; perhaps if you happen to live for a billion years or so.

How Is Electrical Energy Produced From Solar?
How Does Solar Energy Work? How Does It Produce Energy?

Solar energy IS energy. It doesn't produce energy.

To get ELECTRICAL energy from solar energy the light impinges on a semiconductor surface.

Photons of light knock electrons from atoms near the surface. These electrons are collected and pass through a circuit until they arrive at the other side of the semiconductor.

Naturally the electrons have the energy that was given to them by the light. Less the amount needed to escape from the surface of the material. This energy is used as the electrons pass through the circuit.

Then they must diffuse through the material until once more they are irradiated by the light.

How Does The Greenhouse Effect Affect Weather And Living Things On Earth?

The greenhouse effect is caused by various compounds in the air (including water vapor and carbon dioxide) that absorb infrared radiation emanating from the earth after solar rays hit the surface (they lose energy when they hit and come off at lower energy, which usually comes off as infrared). If there were no infrared-absorbing compounds in the atmosphere, the average temperature on the Earth's surface would be about -60 degrees Fahrenheit, even though 99% of the Earth's atmosphere does not absorb infrared radiation (the three major components, N2, O2, and Ar are molecules which do not have dipole moments and cannot absorb infrared radiation).

As such, the greenhouse effect allows Earth to be warmer on average than it would normally, given the distance from the Sun, etc. The problem lies in the increase in carbon dioxide due to the burning of fossil fuels, etc. and the decrease in plant life which cannot help to convert the CO2 into O2 via photosynthesis. Increased CO2 in the atmosphere leads to excess heat being trapped, and global temperatures on average rising. It is not known completely what will happen with higher temperatures, but it's assumed that the weather patterns can change, causing extremes in certain areas (droughts in some areas, flooding in others) and increased melting of the polar ice caps, leading to rising ocean levels and flooding of low-lying areas. It can also lead to decreased plant growth and decreased food supply.

Which Has The Lower Carbon Footprint (In General), Solar Or Wind?

Hey Dook, linlyons has a pretty good swag, but the question is more complicated than that. What you are talking about is "embodied energy." This is the amount of energy used to produce something, including mining the raw materials, transporting them, making the final product, and transporting and installing. There have been studies done on this very thing on both solar panels and wind turbines. The problem is the variables are quite broad, and the end use of the product affects the timeline it takes to recover the embodied energy. In general, solar panels earn back their embodied energy in 1.5 to 6.25 years. Obviously if you install on in a shady location or cloudy climate, the number might be larger. Wind has larger variables, but in the end a modern turbine earns back its embodied energy in .75 to 8.5 years, again depending on the wind available, and even more so on the tower, on shore versus off, and so on. So it's hard to nail down.

The achilles heel to solar however is no matter how efficiently you produce it, and how short the shipment, even in a good sunny climate, it won't work at night, where a well placed turbine can produce 24/7, this is why linlyons swag is probably more accurate than most.

What is worth mentioning is that neither sources is better than the other. We have both here at our home, and in most locations they are "complimentary," meaning they work well together. In general, when it's sunny, it is usually quite calm. When it is cloudy, or the days are short, such as in winter, it's windy. Most renewable homes that have one technology also have the other as well. It isn't important which is better, they are both better when they work together.

A common argument you might hear goes like this, "A solar panel will never earn back the energy used to manufacture it during its lifetime." Even if this was correct (it isn't ), it wouldn't matter. Electricity has been around for over a century now, so it isn't going away any time soon. The question should be, "What is the best way to produce it?" Suppose you build a solar array that peaks out at 1 megawatt (MW). Then you build a coal fired plant next to it that also produces 1 MW, which earns back its embodied energy first? The answer is the coal plant never does. We forget that once you build a power plant that works on any non renewable source, such as coal, oil, natural gas or nuclear, we then have to feed it coal, oil, gas and so on the rest of its life, which it converts to electricity at a rate somewhere below 100%, so it keeps on digging itself a deeper and deeper carbon hole it can never crawl out of. At least a wind turbine and solar panel will one day get even, or at least get closer to zero. Remember this, it will come up one day talking with your friends. Take care Dook, Rudydoo
