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 use the sun to power daily life: running your air conditioner, cleaning clothes, watching TELEVISION, cooking supper.

Solar panels aren't an expense-- they're one of the very best methods to invest, with returns measuring up to those of more traditional financial investments like stocks and bonds. Thanks to significant electrical energy expense savings, the average American property owner pays off their photovoltaic panel system in 7 to eight years and sees an ROI of 20 percent or more.

#3 Protect versus increasing energy costs

One of the most clear cut benefits of solar panels is the ability to hedge energy prices. In the previous 10 years, property electricity prices have actually increased by approximately 3 percent annually. By purchasing a solar energy system now, you can fix your electrical power rate and secure versus unforeseeable increases in electrical power expenses. If you're a service or house owner with ever-changing cash circulation, going solar also assists you much better projection and handle your costs.

Appraisers are increasingly taking solar setups into consideration as they value homes at the time of a sale, and as homebuyers become more educated about solar, need for homes geared up with photovoltaic panel systems will continue to grow.

#5 Increase U.S. energy self-reliance

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 produce electricity from the sun, we can likewise insulate our country from rate variations in global energy markets.

#6 Create jobs and assist your local economy

Inning accordance with The Solar Structure, the solar market 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 nation. This development is anticipated 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.

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

Many homeowners opt to finance their photovoltaic panels with one of the "pay-as-you-go" funding alternatives. This means that a third-party business-- the solar service provider-- owns the planetary system and looks after installation, upkeep, monitoring and repair works. You just pay the solar company for electrical power-- less than you would've paid the energy company.

As of 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 well-known for their fluctuating and unreliable electricity costs. There is clearly an upward pattern.

With solar panels and simple mathematics, we can calculate just how much electrical power will be produced, and most significantly, at exactly what rate, for at least the next Twenty Years (repaired energy expenses).

Frequently Asked Questions

How Do Solar Panels Work?
Im Fourteen And Looking For A Career I Already Know Solar Panels Capture The Sun And Turn It Into Energy But I Would Like To Know More.

A solar panel is a collection of solar cells (photovoltaic cells) connected together and put in an enclosure.

The solar cells work by taking advantage of the photovoltaic effect. The effect is that in a semiconductor P-N junction, when photons of suitable energy strike the junction, an electron and electron-hole pair are generated. This creates a voltage difference between the two sides. When this voltage is applied to a circuit, the electrons are able to flow through, creating usable energy.

What Needs To Be Done In Order To Make Solar Power Affordable And Available?

Solar hot water heating already makes sense in many locations. It seems like every new house in Honolulu has it.

As for solar electric (photovoltaic panels), the technology is expensive for utility-scale generation, but financially viable for individual homes in increasing areas of the country. That's because a utility can have a nuclear or coal-fired boiler, and produce electricty at (say) 2 cents a kWh. For a consumer, though, the utility may charge 20 cents a kWh, on par with what solar electric costs, so the consumer can break even by putting panels on the roof. Unless a consumer is lucky enough to have running water for hydropower, or solid wind, there isn't a cheaper way to make electricity than solar.

The price of solar panels should be coming down as more manufacturers come on line. I think we will see an evolution rather than a revolution in the next few years, just as the price of PC's was initially high, then slowly came down.

Solar Panels?
Can A Solar Panel Get Energy If There Is A Lot Of Clouds Blocking The Sun?

The efficiency is reduced...that's why you need a heat sink or other storage system to see you through the times when the sun is not out.
You also need to have shutters on your collectors or valves that will shut off the them off otherwise the system can flow backwards and actually lose energy during cloudy days or at night.
In some areas rather then using the collected heat as is its actually more efficient to use it as a tempering or preheating system.
The majority of the energy used to produce (hot water)for example is used to bring the water from cold entry temperature to room temperature say 50-60 percent.
But if you mix your solar heated water into the water to bring it up to room temperature then you only need 40-50 percent to kick it up.

Why Solar Panels Are Expensive?
In Some Countries Where Electric Generation Is Low, They Are Not Available Easily.

Believe it or not, solar panels are so expensive in this country because of government subsides. Without market competition, companies have no obligation to compete with each other on price. If our government would stop paying people to buy solar panels and giving solar panel companies tax breaks, companies would be forced to lower their price and raise their quality in order to get you to buy their product.

This would be true of oil/gas, corn, soy beans and a number of other companies and products as well.

Can Anyone Explain How To Hook Up Solar Panels In Simple Terms?
I Want To Put A 125 Watt Polycrystaline Solar Panel On My Van. Im Not Mechanically Inclined At All. Why Are The Kits So Much More Expensive Then The Panels Alone? Doesnt Seem Right To Charge 4 Times As Much For A Charge Controller And Some Wire. My Undertanding So Far, Mount Panel On Roof, Connect Charge Controller, Drill Hole To Get Wires Inside, Connect To Battery, Connect Power Inverter To Batterry An I Should Have Power? If Anyone Knows How Or Knows A Site That Explains This, It Would Be Greatly Appreciated, Thanks.

Just what do you think you are going to accomplish by doing this? The battery in a vehicle doesn't need a solar panel to keep it charged.... and simply hooking a solar panel up to your single battery will not let you power things if you think you are going to start living in your van.

Just what is the purpose of all of this?
