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 resident to utilize the sun to power daily life: running your air conditioning unit, washing clothing, enjoying TELEVISION, cooking supper. All while reducing your carbon footprint, and without burning fossil fuels or putting a pressure on the electrical grid. And while the ecological advantages of solar power are considerable, many homeowners discover that the benefit, distinct features, and cost savings of owning a solar power system are much more attractive.

Top Ten Benefits of Solar Energy

#1 Drastically reduce or perhaps eliminate your electric bills

Whether you're a house owner, business, or not-for-profit, electrical power costs can comprise a big portion of your monthly expenditures. With a solar panel system, you'll produce totally free power for your system's entire 25+ year lifecycle. Even if you do not produce One Hundred Percent of the energy you consume, solar will lower your energy bills and you'll still save a great deal of cash.

#2 Earn a great return on your financial investment

Photovoltaic panels aren't a cost-- they're one of the very best ways to invest, with returns equaling those of more traditional investments like stocks and bonds. Thanks to significant electricity expense cost savings, the average American property owner settles their photovoltaic panel system in 7 to 8 years and sees an ROI of 20 percent or more.

#3 Protect versus increasing energy expenses

Among the most clear cut advantages of photovoltaic panels is the capability to hedge utility costs. In the past 10 years, property electrical power costs have increased by an average of 3 percent each year. By investing in a solar energy system now, you can fix your electricity rate and protect versus unpredictable increases in electricity expenses. If you're a business or house owner with changing capital, going solar also assists you much better projection and handle your expenses.

#4 Boost your home worth

Several research studies have actually found that homes equipped with solar energy systems have higher property values and sell more rapidly than non-solar homes. Appraisers are progressively taking solar installations into consideration as they value houses at the time of a sale, and as homebuyers become more educated about solar, need for properties equipped with photovoltaic panel systems will continue to grow.

#5 Increase U.S. energy independence

The sun is a near-infinite source of energy and a key component of achieving energy self-reliance in the United States. By increasing our capacity to generate electricity from the sun, we can also insulate our nation from cost variations in global energy markets.

#6 Create jobs and assist your local economy

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

#7 Protect the environment

Solar is a fantastic way to lower your carbon footprint. Structures are accountable for 38 percent of all carbon emissions in the U.S., and going solar can significantly decrease that number. A typical domestic photovoltaic panel system will eliminate three to 4 tons of carbon emissions each year-- the equivalent of planting over 100 trees each year.

#8 Show your commitment to sustainability

Sustainability and business social duty are essential parts of a company's culture and worths. They likewise produce bottom line outcomes. Significantly, customers and neighborhoods are recognizing and rewarding organisations that opt to run properly. Organisations are finding that "green" credentials are a powerful motorist of customer acquiring choices, developing goodwill and enhancing business results.

#9 Start Conserving from Day 1

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

Numerous house owners decide to fund their photovoltaic panels with among the "pay-as-you-go" financing choices. This means that a third-party business-- the solar company-- owns the planetary system and looks after installation, maintenance, monitoring and repairs. You just pay the solar provider for electricity-- less than you would've paid the utility company.

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

#10. Solar is a Secure Investment

The utility business are notorious for their varying and undependable electrical power prices. There is clearly an upward pattern.

With photovoltaic panels and basic math, we can compute what does it cost? electrical energy will be produced, and most importantly, at exactly what price, for at least the next Twenty Years (repaired energy costs).

Financing

Frequently Asked Questions

Why Don'T They Try Liquid Mirror For Solar Energy?
A Huge 100M Liquid Mirror Would Collect So Much Energy That Would Be Focused To The Boiling Thing At Focal Point. That Thing Would Move During The Day To Be Always At The Focal Point. At 12H, The Collected Energy Would Be Awesome, This Wouldn'T Cost A Lot To Make...I Know It'S Not The Ultimate Solution For Solar Energy, But I Wonder Why They Don'T At Least Try It Once... **I Put The Question In This Section Cuz Its Where Most Knowledge Is...And Of Course That The Physic Section Is Just Full Of Students Asking To So Their Home Works...

OK here's a serious answer. Let's calculate how good this idea really is. The numbers come from Wikipedia, I know they aren't completely reliable, but they do make sense.

The sun's average distance from Earth is 1.496 x 10^11 m, so if we had a device on the surface of Earth with a diameter of 100 m like you said, if would capture a factor of
(pi 50^2) / (4 pi (1.496 x 10^11)^2) = 2.793 x 10^-20
of the sun's total energy output.

Luminosity of sun = 3.846 x 10^26 W
So the maximum amount of power potentially captured by your device is
3.846 x 10^26 W * 2.793 x 10^-20 = 10.74 MW

If you take the efficiency factor of power conversion into account, which is currently very low (<5%) for sunlight, you'd be getting less than a megawatt out of your enormous machine. In comparison, the Big Allis generator in New York generates nearly 1000 MW and is not much bigger than your mirror.

So the conclusion is: it would be great if there was something like that on top of each roof to supply a single house's energy needs. But it's not a practical idea for large-scale distribution.

Bc big oil doesn&#x27;t have its tentacles everywhere in china?

Just Saw Pickens New Commercial And.......?
Went To His Site To See What He's All About. Independent From What You Think About Agw; What Do You Think About His Plan? I Personally Liked What He Said, That When It Comes To The Debate Of Drilling Domestically He Believes We Should Drill, But That We Will Still Be Dependent On Foreign Oil. Because Of That We Are Going To Need To Develop New Technologies Such As Wind (What He Is Mainly Pushing), Solar, Natural Gas Etc. What I Mainly Got Is That We Need To Build A Bridge To Those New Technologies, And In Essence Have Domestic Oil Hold Us Over Until The New Tech Is Here In A More Economically Viable Way. So, Independently From What You May Believe When It Comes To Agw, What Do You Think About Pickens Plan, Drilling And How Much Do You Think The Government Should Get Involved In Business And Free Market?

We don't need to be completely energy independent. Trade makes us stronger and with a global economy it's a good thing.

Also, when Pickens says we are transfering wealth, he's lying and should know better. We are just trading. Admittedly we could provide for ourselves more and that's also good, but there's nothing wrong with buying energy overseas.

Unfortunately, wind only provides about 1% of our energy needs and those turbines are unreliable as well as dangerous to the environment. Did you see that one in Denmark that just exploded from strong winds? Search on Youtube for the video. It's incredible.

Drilling is part of the solution because we can't ever get away from oil. If we quit using it as a fuel for cars and planes, we'd still need billions of barrels just for all the plastics and asphalt we use. Not to mention clothing, cosmetics and medicines. Besides, we have trillions of barrels of untapped sources in the US. We just need the obstacles to be removed so we can get at it.

Note that Pickens is looking out for himself mostly. That's not a bad thing, but understand that when you listen to him talk. Also note that Pelosi is invested in his plan and that explains why she and most other Democrats are dead against drilling. Keeping gas prices high is beneficial to them.

Oh, and the reason the oil companies don't drill much on leased lands is because of the constant lawsuits from environmentalists. They are the real enemies of the environment and the economy. The oil companies are the only ones with solutions right now, so let's quit blaming them for high prices.

Remember, they only make 8 cents a gallon while the government makes at least 13 cents on every gallon sold. And the government doesn't have to invest in research and development. They just take the money and pass the blame.

So Nuclear is still a great solution, but don't forget that coal is very abundant and there are some very clean ways of getting energy from coal these days.

If There Are Solar Energy Panels, Is There Anything To Save Water?
I Know There Are Solar Energy Panels And Wind Turbines But Is There Anything For Water? Also, How Much Money Would You Save A Year If You Installed A Solar Panel And Wind Turbine? No Rude Comments.

to save water .here r some methods
Water-saving technology for the home includes:
Low-flow shower heads sometimes called energy-efficient shower heads as they also use less energy,
Low-flush toilets and composting toilets. These have a dramatic impact in the developed world, as conventional Western toilets use large volumes of water.
Dual flush toilets created by Caroma includes two buttons or handles to flush different levels of water. Dual flush toilets use up to 67% less water than conventional toilets.
Saline water (sea water) or rain water can be used for flushing toilets.
Faucet aerators, which break water flow into fine droplets to maintain "wetting effectiveness" while using less water. An additional benefit is that they reduce splashing while washing hands and dishes.
Wastewater reuse or recycling systems, allowing: Reuse of graywater for flushing toilets or watering gardens
Recycling of wastewater through purification at a water treatment plant. See also Wastewater - Reuse

Rainwater harvesting
High-efficiency clothes washers
Weather-based irrigation controllers
Garden hose nozzles that shut off water when it is not being used, instead of letting a hose run.
using low flow taps in wash basins
Automatic faucet is a water conservation faucet that eliminates water waste at the faucet. It automates the use of faucets without the use of hands.
A valve which reduces water, gas, time, money and CO2 known as a Combisave

Water can also be conserved by landscaping with native plants and by changing behavior, such as shortening showers and not running the faucet while brushing teeth.
