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 utilize the sun to power daily life: running your air conditioner, washing clothing, seeing TV, cooking supper. All while decreasing your carbon footprint, and without burning fossil fuels or putting a stress on the electrical grid. And while the environmental advantages of solar power are significant, lots of residents find that the benefit, distinct functions, and expense savings of owning a solar power system are a lot more attractive.

Top 10 Advantages of Solar Energy

#1 Significantly minimize and even eliminate your electric expenses

Whether you're a homeowner, company, or nonprofit, electricity costs can make up a large portion of your monthly costs. With a photovoltaic panel system, you'll create free power for your system's whole 25+ year lifecycle. Even if you do not produce One Hundred Percent of the energy you consume, solar will minimize your utility expenses and you'll still conserve a great deal of loan.

#2 Earn a fantastic return on your investment

Photovoltaic panels aren't an expenditure-- they're one of the very best ways to invest, with returns rivaling those of more standard financial investments like stocks and bonds. Thanks to significant electrical energy expense savings, the average American property owner settles their photovoltaic panel system in seven to eight years and sees an ROI of 20 percent or more.

#3 Safeguard against rising energy costs

One of the most clear cut advantages of solar panels is the capability to hedge utility costs. In the past 10 years, residential electrical power rates have actually gone up by approximately 3 percent each year. By investing in a solar energy system now, you can repair your electrical power rate and protect versus unpredictable boosts in electrical power expenses. If you're an organisation or property owner with fluctuating cash flow, going solar also assists you better projection and manage your expenses.

#4 Increase your home or business worth

Multiple research studies have actually discovered that homes equipped with solar energy systems have greater property worths and sell 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 property buyers end up being more educated about solar, need for properties geared up with solar panel systems will continue to grow.

#5 Boost U.S. energy independence

The sun is a near-infinite source of energy and an essential part of achieving energy self-reliance in the United States. By increasing our capacity to generate electrical power from the sun, we can also insulate our nation from price fluctuations in global energy markets.

#6 Develop 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 total U.S. economy in 2015, representing 1.2 percent of all tasks in the nation. This development is expected to continue. Due to the fact that solar-related jobs tend to be higher paying and can not be contracted out, they are a substantial factor to the United States economy.

#7 Protect the environment

Solar is a terrific method to reduce your carbon footprint. Structures are responsible for 38 percent of all carbon emissions in the U.S., and going solar can significantly decrease that number. A typical residential solar panel system will remove three to 4 lots of carbon emissions each year-- the equivalent of planting over 100 trees annually.

#8 Show your commitment to sustainability

Sustainability and business social obligation are essential parts of a company's culture and worths. They also produce bottom line outcomes. Significantly, consumers and communities are acknowledging and rewarding companies that decide to operate responsibly. Organisations are discovering that "green" qualifications are an effective driver of consumer getting choices, creating goodwill and enhancing business results.

#9 Start Saving from Day 1

Solar purchase power arrangements (PPAs) and solar leasing has made it possible for homeowners to go solar for little or no money down.

Numerous property owners select to finance their solar panels with among the "pay-as-you-go" funding options. This implies that a third-party business-- the solar supplier-- owns the solar system and takes care of setup, maintenance, monitoring and repair works. You simply 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 notorious for their varying and unreliable electricity prices. There is clearly an upward pattern.

With solar panels and easy mathematics, we can determine just how much electricity will be created, and most significantly, at what price, for at least the next Twenty Years (fixed energy expenses).

Financing

What are the various payment options?

We have many flexible purchasing agreements for customers who would like to install a new home solar system. There are three different payment options, making them a viable choice for customers of all budgets. The payment options include Lease, PPA, and Purchase.

What is the warranty?

The Lease and PPA include a 20-year warranty during the lifetime of the system. This warranty exceeds that of most other solar installers’ warranties.

Frequently Asked Questions

With Windmills And Solar Panels Installed, Al Gore'S House Still Uses 20 X The Average Energy Of Americans?

Which house? Maybe the idiotic liberals that worship him will turn off their lights and go back to candles. After all, he should live the way he chooses while the rest of us sacrifice. Don't forget his fleet of FSUVs (fuel sucking utility vehicles) and his private jet. He did buy "carbon offsets"...from his own company.

uno linux: I believe his house in TN is 10-15k sq. ft.

How Much Do Solar Panels Usually Cost?
I Was Thinking Of Having Some Installed On Our Rooftop And Was Wondering If It Would Be Worth The Cost? The House Is Located In Sac, Cali. The Panels Would Face The Sun 12 Months Out Of The Year And In The Summer Roughly 14 Hours Of Straight Sun.

Solar panels are currently selling for between $4 and $6 per watt of rated power output. A typical panel that you might install on your roof would be rated for between 100 and 300 watts and therefore will cost between about $400 and around $1500 or so.

A complete solar power system also needs some other components and will have some installation costs and so the total installed cost of a solar system is typically in the range of $8 - 10 per watt of rated power.

Most home sized systems are rated in the 1000 to 10,000 watt range and therefore cost between about $8000 and $100,000 dollars to install. Many states offer rebates and tax savings that can reduce this cost by as much as 50%.

These systems will typically generate between about $300 and $2500 worth or electricity per year.

Solar panels are expected to last between 30 and 50 years and so these systems will likely generate between $9000 and $120,000 worth of electricity over their life time in current dollars. This will vary widely though based on local electricity costs and may well increase greatly in the future if electricity rates rise.

Simple Hw Help?
Sorry Im Currently Braindead And I Cant Think Strait So I Have To Do This Project Using An Island And Describing Four Renewable Energy Sources That Can Be Found Or Set Up On The Island. I Already Have The Two Easiest; Wind Farms And Solar Energy I Have A Couple Of Questions That I Would Glad If Someone Answered. 1) The Direction The Windfarm Must Face Is Opposite Of The Direction The Wind Blows In The Summer. Why Is This? Is It Because Summer Winds Are Longer Then Winter Winds Or Something? 2) The Solar Panels Should Be Facing South In Order To Catch The Energy From The Sun For The Entire Day. Why Cant It Face North? 3) What Other Sources Can I Use? (Ex Tidal) And Explain How I Can Use Them The Island Is A Slim Island In A Slight C Shape. It Looks Kinda Like A Fat String Bean Or Something. Help

Wind changes directions at different times of the year

It cannot face north because it would not catch all of the solar energy. They get more sunlight facing south.

Tidal energy would work. Hawaii is doing that now. You find the direction of the tidal current, and it works almost like a wind turbine, only it is for current. http://www.eia.doe.gov/kids/energyfacts/... This is a good well explained site with an illustration to help you see and understand it.

you can also use geothermal energy as a natural source. http://geothermal.marin.org/pwrheat.html... this site will help explain what it is.

What Makes Solar Panels So Expensive In The Us?
I Recently Got A Quote To Get Solar Panels For My House And It Was Over $30,000! I Want To Do My Part To Reduce Global Warming And Support Renewable Energy, But How Can The Average Person Do It When It Costs So Much? Even With Federal And State Rebates, Its Way Too Expensive? Did Anyone See 'Who Killed The Electric Car?'

-----
Yes, they are too expensive - but if more people bought them, the cost would come down. Even 30K is a good investment, though, if you plan to stay in that house a few years. Let's look at some numbers:
*
In my neighborhood (cold climate here) my heat plus electric bill averages about $350/month (about $4200/year.) Assuming I switch to electric heat, and I can provide for all of my energy needs from the panels, they would pay for themselves in about 7 years.
*
How much better would this be if you drove an electric car? (I drive one.) The average driver puts about 15,000 miles/year on his car. The average car gets 18mpg. At $2.50/gallon, that driver spends $2083/year on gasoline. And this number, along with the price of gasoline, keeps going up.
*
Total cost savings: $6283 per year. So those $30,000 panels pay for themselves in about 4.77 years. If the price of gas and utilities keep going up (they will), you'll be paid off even faster.

How Do Pv Cells Convert Radiant Energy Into Electricity.?
Im Doing A Science Final And I Need To Know How Pv Cells Convert Radiant Energy Into Electricity. Thanks.

1. Photons in sunlight hit the solar panel and are absorbed by semiconducting materials, such as silicon.
2. Electrons (negatively charged) are knocked loose from their atoms, allowing them to flow through the material to produce electricity. The complementary positive charges that are also created (like bubbles) are called holes and flow in the direction opposite of the electrons in a silicon solar panel.
3. An array of solar panels converts solar energy into a usable amount of direct current (DC) electricity.
