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 use the sun to power everyday life: running your air conditioning system, cleaning clothes, seeing TV, cooking dinner. All while lowering your carbon footprint, and without burning nonrenewable fuel sources or putting a stress on the electrical grid. And while the ecological benefits of solar power are substantial, numerous residents find that the benefit, special features, and expense savings of owning a solar power system are a lot more attractive.

Top Ten Benefits of Solar Energy

#1 Significantly lower or even remove your electric expenses

Whether you're a homeowner, service, or not-for-profit, electricity costs can comprise a large portion of your regular monthly costs. With a solar panel system, you'll generate totally free power for your system's entire 25+ year lifecycle. Even if you do not produce 100 percent of the energy you take in, solar will reduce your utility bills and you'll still save a lot of cash.

#2 Earn a great return on your investment

Photovoltaic panels aren't an expense-- they are among the very best ways to invest, with returns rivaling those of more conventional investments like stocks and bonds. Thanks to significant electrical energy bill savings, the typical American house owner settles their solar panel system in seven to eight years and sees an ROI of 20 percent or more.

#3 Secure versus rising energy costs

One of the most clear cut advantages of photovoltaic panels is the ability to hedge utility costs. In the past 10 years, residential electricity costs have actually increased by an average of 3 percent annually. By investing in a solar energy system now, you can repair your electrical energy rate and secure versus unforeseeable boosts in electrical energy costs. If you're an organisation or property owner with fluctuating cash flow, going solar also assists you much better forecast and manage your costs.

#4 Boost your property value

Several research studies have actually found that homes equipped with solar energy systems have greater home worths and sell more quickly than non-solar homes. Appraisers are increasingly taking solar installations into factor to consider as they value houses at the time of a sale, and as property buyers end up being more educated about solar, need for residential or commercial properties equipped 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 element of attaining energy independence in the United States. By increasing our capability to produce electrical energy from the sun, we can likewise insulate our country from cost changes in worldwide energy markets.

#6 Create jobs and help your regional economy

According to The Solar Foundation, the solar market added jobs at a rate nearly 12 times faster than the overall 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 tasks tend to be higher paying and can not be outsourced, they are a substantial factor to the U.S. economy.

#7 Safeguard the environment

Solar is a fantastic method to lower 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 common domestic photovoltaic panel system will get rid of three to four lots of carbon emissions each year-- the equivalent of planting over 100 trees each year.

#8 Show your dedication to sustainability

Sustainability and corporate social responsibility are essential elements of an organization's culture and worths. They likewise produce bottom line outcomes. Significantly, consumers and communities are acknowledging and rewarding companies that choose to run properly. Businesses are discovering that "green" credentials are a powerful motorist of customer acquiring decisions, producing goodwill and improving service results.

#9 Start Conserving 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 fund their solar panels with among the "pay-as-you-go" funding options. This indicates that a third-party business-- the solar supplier-- owns the planetary system and takes care of setup, maintenance, monitoring and repair works. You just pay the solar provider for electricity-- 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 Financial investment

The utility companies are well-known for their varying and unreliable electrical power costs. There is clearly an upward pattern.

With solar panels and easy mathematics, we can calculate just how much electrical energy will be produced, and most importantly, at exactly what rate, for a minimum of the next 20 years (fixed energy expenses).

Frequently Asked Questions

Want To Combine My 1St And 2Nd Mortgage. Problem: The 2Nd Is $60,000 I Spend On Solar Panels; No Appraise Val?
I Can'T Find An Appraiser To Give Any Value To My Solar Panels. At Least My Swimming Pool Is Getting Half Of Its Value. Why Are Appraisers Giving Value To The Solar Panels, They'Ve Been Around For A Little While.

According to the Appraisal Institute, solar increases the value of your home. A study suggested that the selling price of homes increased by $20.73 for every $1 decrease in annual utility bills (Appraisal Journal, October 1999).

If you cannot find the original article from 10 years ago, one of the pages that referenced it is below.

But your local appraisers should know what local people will pay. Maybe your market doesn't attribute value to solar panels.

Why Are Cinder Blocks Good For Energy Efficient Houses?
Also, Solar Panels, Cool Metal For The Roof, And The Double Pan Windows?

And who said this?

Cinder block houses are terrible for energy efficiency in the winter.A better choice would be ICF construction for both summer/winter.Solar panels are a great choice as a heating aid to help cut energy costs in the winter.A cool metal roof is desired for heat reflection in the summer,and the metal roof can virtually last a lifetime.Double pane windows are dual function,it helps retain heat in the winter and also helps keep the cool on the inside.

Google search "green homes" to help better understand.

What Size Solar Panel Would You Need To Run A 120V Motor 3.0Amp?
What Size Solar Panel Would You Need To Run A 120V 3.0 Amp Motor?

Depends on how long you are running the motor. You will need to determine the load watt hours, and size it from there. 120V x 3A = 360W. If you run it for 1 hour, that's 360watt hours . If you run it for 10 hours, it's 3600 watt hours (360W x 10 hours). Once you have that number, put it in a off-grid calculator like this one, http://www.altestore.com/store/calculato... It will tell you what size solar array and what size battery bank you need.

You are also going to need an inverter to convert the DC voltage from the panels and battery to AC to run the pump. You'll need something that can handle the surge of the motor, so check out the specs. http://www.altestore.com/store/Inverters...

How Long Would It Take To Build A Castle?
Not In The Past Present Time, A 100X100foot In Length And 50 Feet In Height Cinder Block Castle With A 50X50foot Courtyard In The Center And Solar Panels On The Roof And Electricity Through Out The Castle, My Dad Said Its His Dream Place To Leave And I Plan On Making It Reality, Money Won'T Be A Problem Cause I Can Get My Own Money To Build It. I Am Good With Working With Concrete And Electrical I Have No Idea About Plumbing So I'D Have To Hire Someone, I'Ll Be Building This In Texas And I Was Just Going To Put Fire Places In Bedrooms And The Main Rooms, I Was Going To Have It 3 Stories With 15 Foot Ceilings (My Dad Likes High Ceilings). And I Can Get 40 Or 50 People To Help Me With Construction, My Dad Wants A Glass Ceiling Over The Courtyard To I Was Going To Use Ballistics Glass At A 38 Degree Angle (So Water Won'T Build Up) What Kind Of Metal Would I Use To Hold The Glass? Also My Dad Would Like An Under Ground Bunker How Would I Go About Doing This? Could I Use Cinder Block For The Walls In The Bunker And Have Electrical And Plumbing Hooked Up With The Castle? And How Many Feet Down Would I Need To Make The Foundation To Support This? Would It Be Best To Put Layers Of Concrete So It Will Dry Better? Not Trolling People I Just Wanna Do Something For My Dad

First thing you need is a commercial architect. He will design the structure for you so it will be safe and pass zoning codes. 100X100ft isn't all that big so could be finished in a year. The fastest way to build this isn't with block but forms and reinforced concrete. Look at how fast they can build a supper wally-world store form start to finish.

Compare Wind Energy To Two Other Renewable Resources. Thuroughly, Site Sources?
Site The Sources And Compare Thuroughly Please :)

Wind energy requires no other source of energy, it fuels itself. Windmills have very little environmental impact, they are made, and go into the ground and are up in the sky away from planes and land dwellers below. The wind spins the wheel and energy is provided. The only down fall is windmills upset migratory bird patterns, often killing birds. also they are noisy and not atheistically pleasing.
Another renewable source of energy that has not yet been fully created, but is under debate is Tide Mills. Underwater windmills, if you will, are put under the ocean near tide, and as the waves move it generates the mills. This also could negatively affect underwater animals.
Another is using poop and other animal waste or wastes in general to use as fuels. By burning it then using the steam or smoke generated to use as energy.
Also there is solar energy. The solar panels pick up the uv rays and generates energy. Only problem with solar panels is the chemicals used to make them are toxic to humans and the environment. Arsenic and other hazardous chemicals are used to make the solar cells ( the cell with in the panel that catches the UV rays)
There is also Geothermal energy. This is natural gases from underground used to make energy. this is harder to come by being it that the gases are accessible in certain countries.

Renewable energy is energy that replenishes itself.

Wheeh! I hope this helped! Let me know if it did. Please! Thanks!
