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 use the sun to power everyday life: running your air conditioning system, cleaning clothing, viewing TELEVISION, cooking dinner. All while lowering your carbon footprint, and without burning fossil fuels or putting a strain on the electrical grid. And while the environmental advantages of solar power are significant, lots of home owners find that the convenience, unique features, and cost savings of owning a solar power system are even more enticing.

Leading Advantages of Solar Energy

#1 Significantly minimize and even remove your electric bills

Whether you're a homeowner, company, or nonprofit, electrical power costs can make up a big part of your monthly expenses. With a photovoltaic panel system, you'll create complimentary power for your system's entire 25+ year lifecycle. Even if you don't produce 100 percent of the energy you take in, solar will minimize your energy expenses and you'll still conserve a lot of money.

#2 Make an excellent return on your financial investment

Solar panels aren't a cost-- they are among the very best methods to invest, with returns equaling those of more traditional financial investments like stocks and bonds. Thanks to considerable electrical power costs cost savings, the typical American house owner settles their photovoltaic panel system in seven to 8 years and sees an ROI of 20 percent or more.

#3 Secure versus rising energy expenses

Among the most clear cut advantages of photovoltaic panels is the capability to hedge energy rates. In the previous ten years, property electricity costs have actually increased by approximately 3 percent annually. By purchasing a solar energy system now, you can repair your electrical energy rate and safeguard against unforeseeable increases in electricity costs. If you're a business or house owner with fluctuating capital, going solar also helps you better projection and handle your expenditures.

#4 Increase your house value

Several studies have found that houses geared up with solar energy systems have greater residential or commercial property worths and sell faster 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 homebuyers end up being more informed about solar, need for properties geared up with solar panel systems will continue to grow.

#5 Increase U.S. energy independence

The sun is a near-infinite source of energy and an essential part of attaining energy independence in the United States. By increasing our capability to create electrical energy from the sun, we can also insulate our country from cost variations in international energy markets.

#6 Create jobs and help your local economy

According to The Solar Foundation, the solar industry included tasks at a rate nearly 12 times faster than the total U.S. economy in 2015, representing 1.2 percent of all tasks in the country. This development is anticipated to continue. Due to the fact that solar-related jobs have the tendency to be higher paying and can not be outsourced, they are a significant factor to the U.S. economy.

#7 Protect the environment

Solar is a fantastic method to reduce your carbon footprint. Buildings are accountable for 38 percent of all carbon emissions in the United States, and going solar can considerably decrease that number. A normal residential photovoltaic panel system will remove three to 4 lots of carbon emissions each year-- the equivalent of planting over 100 trees annually.

#8 Demonstrate your dedication to sustainability

Sustainability and corporate social obligation are crucial elements of a company's culture and values. They likewise produce bottom line results. Increasingly, consumers and neighborhoods are recognizing and rewarding companies that opt to operate properly. Businesses are discovering that "green" qualifications are an effective driver of customer acquiring choices, developing goodwill and improving business outcomes.

#9 Start Conserving from Day 1

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

Numerous house owners opt to fund their solar panels with one of the "pay-as-you-go" funding alternatives. This implies that a third-party business-- the solar supplier-- owns the solar system and takes care of installation, upkeep, monitoring and repairs. You merely pay the solar company for electrical power-- 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 business are infamous for their changing and undependable electrical power prices. There is clearly an upward pattern.

With solar panels and basic mathematics, we can calculate what does it cost? electrical power will be produced, and most importantly, at exactly what rate, for a minimum of the next 20 years (fixed energy expenses).

Frequently Asked Questions

How Long Can Solar Energy Be Stored?
I Am Purchasing Panels To Help Consume Less Energy. I Need To Know If The Storage Is Long To Buy Less Panels. Trying To Figure If I Should Buy More Than Two. I Would Like To Run Normal Usage Of Lights In The Home.

Solar energy can't be stored at all.
As soon as the sun stops shining (at night) there is zero energy available.
What happens is that solar energy is transformed into electricity which can be stored in a battery.

The storage batteries are a crucial (and expensive) part of using solar energy.
You buy as many batteries as you require to run appliances during the night time. It needs to be tempered with the ability of the solar panels to charge up the batteries.

I think you better swap over to LCD lights if you want to run them off batteries. Even the "energy efficient globes use a lot of power.

How Is Solar Energy Converted Into Electrical Energy?
How Is Solar Energy Converted Into Electrical Energy?

Special crystals in the panels collect electrons as they hit the plates, sending them all through current gathering it in one system

Why Should The Us Use An Alternative Energy Source?
Writing A Persuasive Essay On It But Know Nothing About It

I would suggest to answer with questions that should have been asked alternately.
like.... "Why should the US use an alternative energy source for _________?"

For Cars- Why? I really do not know. We have had alternatives in the forms of electricity, steam, black powder, and solar for even up to 100 years! There just isn't a better "bang for the buck" so to speak... Or there isn't an alternative that is more efficient for less money than fossil fuels.

For USA's Power- We use several forms right now including: coal, water/hydro, natural gas, oil, and nuclear. What we should invest more in is the use of Nuclear Power Plants. It has a history of misinformation and misunderstanding around the world and especially in the United States. It is our cleanest, safest, and cheapest option for the money.

When Will We Have Solar Powered Vehicles On The Streets ?
I Know That Solar Roof Tops Are Available For Cars, But The Range Is Minimally Boosted. And Then The Solar Cars For Endurance Races.. But They Are Not Designs For The General Public. I Like To Know When Electric Vehicles Will Be Powered By At Least 50% Through Solar Energy And Built In Vehicle Solar Panels ?

All the vehicles Ive seen online are still just too heavy to use all the on board solar power to transport someone down the road. It becomes a trade off... you need more surface area to have more solar panels, and this adds more weight..

Some bikers have mounted solar panels on the roof, side, or pulled a trailer... and that's a good start, but my favorite is THEKPV.

This vehicle has solar panels as the wind fairing, plus the bike is only 50lbs.. He doesn't say how much solar power it uses riding down the road.. But the site mentions using the solar power to charge batteries, and capacitors in smaller groups so I assume he can utilize the 50 watts of on board solar power to match 50 watts from the battery and ride down the road on 100 watts @ 50% solar. This is probably very slow.. compared to a car.

Why Is China Investing In Green Technology When They Have More Coal Than Anyone?
Not Just To Export, But To Produce Their Electricity. Why Would They Do That? Is The Problem That They Have A Leftist Liberal Government That Isn'T Very Bright? Is The Problem That They Just Don'T Understand Fauxnews Science? Is The Problem That, Maybe It'S Warming There, But Not Over Here In N. America?

This is just my opinion which may not conform with the truth but a friend of a friend had been to China back in the eighties consulting to the Chinese companies building underground storage facilities for the Chinese government that had the capacity to house billions of barrels of oil, huge quantities of processed iron ores and other precious metals.
As the bloke's curiosity got the better of him, he asked one of the facility guides what the Chinese government was doing mass hoarding so much natural resources that weren't being released to the mass market, the guide replied 'They are preparing for the inevitable future when everything will become scarce and the price will eventually skyrocket'.
So just as the Chinese were preparing for all contingencies even as far back as the eighties, I would assume that they are still preparing for the contingencies for the future now by tapping into all avenues of energy generation knowing that eventually the domestic consumption of energy will only increase with increasing demand placed by ever increasing population not to mention geopolitical considerations and future projection of the price of natural resources as time factor will eventually deplete all conventional source of energy.
