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 home owners to utilize the sun to power everyday life: running your air conditioning system, cleaning clothing, enjoying TV, cooking dinner. All while decreasing your carbon footprint, and without burning nonrenewable fuel sources or putting a strain on the electrical grid. And while the ecological benefits of solar power are considerable, numerous homeowners find that the convenience, unique features, and expense savings of owning a solar power system are even more enticing.

Top 10 Benefits of Solar Energy

#1 Drastically lower and even eliminate your electric costs

Whether you're a house owner, business, or nonprofit, electrical power expenses can comprise a large portion of your regular monthly costs. With a photovoltaic panel system, you'll produce 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 decrease your utility expenses and you'll still save a great deal of money.

#2 Earn a terrific return on your financial investment

Photovoltaic panels aren't an expenditure-- they're one of the very best ways to invest, with returns measuring up to those of more traditional investments like stocks and bonds. Thanks to considerable electrical energy costs savings, the typical American house owner pays off their solar panel system in 7 to eight years and sees an ROI of 20 percent or more.

#3 Secure versus rising energy costs

Among the most clear cut benefits of photovoltaic panels is the ability to hedge energy costs. In the past 10 years, residential electricity rates have actually gone up by an average of 3 percent every year. By purchasing a solar energy system now, you can fix your electricity rate and safeguard against unpredictable boosts in electrical energy costs. If you're a company or house owner with fluctuating money flow, going solar likewise helps you better projection and handle your expenses.

#4 Boost your property worth

Numerous studies have actually found that homes geared up with solar energy systems have greater property values and offer more quickly than non-solar houses. Appraisers are progressively taking solar installations into consideration as they value homes at the time of a sale, and as homebuyers become more educated about solar, need for residential or commercial properties geared up with solar panel systems will continue to grow.

#5 Increase U.S. energy self-reliance

The sun is a near-infinite source of energy and a key part of accomplishing energy self-reliance in the United States. By increasing our capacity to create electrical energy from the sun, we can likewise insulate our nation from price fluctuations in global energy markets.

#6 Develop jobs and assist your local economy

According to The Solar Foundation, the solar market included tasks at a rate almost 12 times faster than the overall U.S. economy in 2015, representing 1.2 percent of all tasks in the country. This growth is anticipated to continue. Since solar-related tasks have the tendency to be greater paying and can not be outsourced, they are a substantial factor to the U.S. economy.

#7 Protect the environment

Solar is an excellent way to decrease your carbon footprint. Structures are accountable for 38 percent of all carbon emissions in the United States, and going solar can significantly reduce that number. A common residential photovoltaic panel system will eliminate 3 to 4 lots of carbon emissions each year-- the equivalent of planting over 100 trees annually.

#8 Show your commitment to sustainability

Sustainability and corporate social obligation are necessary components of an organization's culture and worths. They also produce bottom line results. Increasingly, consumers and communities are acknowledging and rewarding organisations that decide to operate properly. Services are finding that "green" credentials are an effective motorist of consumer getting choices, developing goodwill and improving organisation outcomes.

#9 Start Conserving from Day 1

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

Many homeowners opt to finance their photovoltaic panels with among the "pay-as-you-go" funding options. This suggests that a third-party business-- the solar company-- owns the planetary system and takes care of installation, maintenance, tracking and repair works. You just pay the solar service 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 business are notorious for their varying and undependable electrical power costs. There is plainly an upward pattern.

With photovoltaic panels and simple mathematics, we can compute just how much electrical energy will be generated, and most significantly, at exactly what price, for at least the next 20 years (fixed energy expenses).

Financing

Frequently Asked Questions

Solar Flare Vs Asteroid Impact:Please Read Be For Answer?
Which Has More Energy And Is More Powerful,A Solar Flare With More Energy Than A Billion 100 Megaton Nuclear Bomb,Or A Asteroid The Size Of Texas Moving At 134,000 Mph.Can'T You Think Of A 100 Megaton Nuclear Blast,But A Billion Of Them Going Off At The Some Time,(The Largest Nuclear Blast Was At 58 Megaton And Look At How Powerful It Was And What It Did)And O Boy The Asteroid Impact,This Is Just Way To Powerful,I Have Read That A Asteroid 18 Miles Wide Moving At 67,000 Mph Would Just Be To Powerful To Add Up,But Try To Think Of A Very High Yield Megaton Nuclear Bomb Going Off Ever Second For More Than 6,000 Year And Compress All Of That Into One Giant Blast, Think Of How Much Energy That Is On Impact,How Powerful Is That,I Love Natural Disasters Of All Kinds And I Like To Talk About Them All Please Email At ([email protected])Sorry About The Long Question I Write.

Have no idea what motivated this question and the additional rhetoric. A solar Flare is more apt to cause the greatest damage. The Magnetos sphere protects the Earth. The asteroid as per your example would wipe us out for the fact that there is no protection. Damage is one thing, but a wipe out is just that, thus, damage is not relevant.

How Would Bio-Mass Generated Electricity Power Cars?
I'M Currently Doing Research For A Report Involving The Practicality And Use Of Bio-Generated Electricity To Fuel/Power Cars. What I Am Sketchy On Is How Exactly Is The Energy Transferred? It Is My Understanding That Turning Bio Mass Into Electricity First And Then Transferring It Is More Efficient Than Simply Pouring Ethanol In The Tank. What I Have Not Found Out Is How The Electricity Then Gets Put In The Vehicle. Is It Battery Packs? A Plug? Etc? I Also Need The Website Where You Received Your Information As Works Cited Since I Cant Use Yahoo Answers As A Viable Source =__=. Also, Some Advantages/Disadvantages Over Lithium Battery Powered Cars Information Would Be Appreciated As Well. I Realize I Am Being Lazy By Asking Here, But I Have Been Searching Google For A While Now And I Am Getting Frustrated At Not Getting The Information I Need. Working While Frustrated Is Unhealthy And Counter Productive. So. Who Will Allow Me To Leech Off Their Research Skills And ?Hard? Work For My Own Benefit And Points On Yahoo :D

Bio mass generated electricity is probably one of the least efficient methods of powering a car. A better use of biomass would be to use straight vege oil or at the worst bio diesel. You could use ethanol using a solar still but even that is pretty inefficient.

A better way of using electricity in cars is via solar cells or micro and large scale hydro generation.

Basically an electric car uses a storage device to store an electrical charge. A battery normally but there are some more novel methods being researched. Hydrogen fuel cells and liquid electrolyte transfer/ Vanadium oxide. This charge is then used to propel the wheels. The usual method of charging the device is to plug it into a power source usually the grid.

When Splitting Water Atoms(H2o), Is The Hydrogen Able To Produce More Energy Than What It Would Take To Split?
If I Used Solar Power To Generate The Energy To Separate Water Into Oxygen And Hydrogen, And Then I Burnt The Hydrogen For Energy, Would It Be More Beneficial Than If I Had To Just Use The Initial Solar Power Energy?

The main benefit of this concept is that you can store the solar energy for later use. Other than that, you will probably be losing some power in the process (resistance on wires will incur some power loss), so using the solar power directly provides the most benefits.

However, using fuel cells to "burn" the hydrogen and oxygen back to water is more efficient (but more expensive) than ligthing the hydrogen up.

What Are The 3 Main Natural Causes Of Global Warming?
Links Will Also Be Helpful... Not Too Complex Please, As I Am Only 15, Thanks!

Appologies, but yours is a very complex question, simple though it seems. It can't be answered very well here because you did not define your terms. "Global Warming" is a slang term that refers to current, ongoing, rapid and one-direction warming whereas natural climate changes are cyclical and/or temporary and are most often very slow.

I'll assume you are asking for natural causes of past climate change. This give a different answer then were we to give some of the guesses at natural causes of the current warming.

Then, not to be obtuse but this is a problem, you have not defined what you mean by "cause". If you threw a rock at me and broke my tooth, what would be the cause of my broken tooth? You threw a rock? A rock hit my tooth? Or the energy applied horizontally overcoming the physical bonds of the enamel in my tooth? All correct, all different answers. All related.

I'll try some categories of processes that cause natural climate change ...

1) Greenhouse effect: The amount of heat that the atmosphere retains, which is determined by it's chemical composition. Changes in the amount of greenhouse gases change the amount of heat the the atmosphere retains. Events that can change the amount of greenhouse gases in the atmosphere include warming/cooling (CO2 is naturally a feedback, a little warming causes more CO2 out of the oceans and into the air, and therefore much more warming), volcanic activity (temporary), combustion.

2) Reflectivity: A reduction in the amount of sunlight that is reflected back to space causes more warming. Things that affect reflectivity include cloud cover which is decreased by solar activity (which seems to be how sun spots affect climate, they reduce gamma rays thus reducing clouds), aerosols in the air either from human products or volcanic activity.

3) The amount of solar energy. The sun does change in radiant output, and the Milankovitch cycles change the amount of energy the earth receives from the sun. The Milankovitch Cycles are the cycles of the earth's orbit and tilt.

4) Warming of the air versus warming of the oceans. The types of things that affect this include plate tectonics over millions of years, or ocean currents over years. (The La Nina pattern in the Pacific causes more icy cold water to churn to the surface which cools the air and pulls more heat into the ocean.)

These are the types of natural events that cause climate change over millions of years. If you really wanted what natural factors may be contributing to warming over the past 40 years, then the answers are somewhat different dominated by the ocean currents and perhaps the solar activity -> clouds connection.
