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 everyday life: running your a/c, cleaning clothing, seeing TV, cooking supper. All while lowering your carbon footprint, and without burning nonrenewable fuel sources or putting a stress on the electrical grid. And while the environmental advantages of solar power are significant, lots of home owners discover that the convenience, unique functions, and cost savings of owning a solar power system are a lot more attractive.

Top Ten Advantages of Solar Energy

#1 Drastically decrease or perhaps eliminate your electric costs

Whether you're a house owner, organization, or nonprofit, electricity costs can make up a big part of your month-to-month expenditures. With a photovoltaic panel system, you'll produce free power for your system's entire 25+ year lifecycle. Even if you don't produce 100 percent of the energy you take in, solar will minimize your energy bills and you'll still conserve a great deal of cash.

#2 Earn a great return on your financial investment

Solar panels aren't a cost-- they're one of the best ways to invest, with returns matching those of more standard 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 seven to 8 years and sees an ROI of 20 percent or more.

#3 Secure versus increasing energy expenses

Among the most clear cut benefits of photovoltaic panels is the capability to hedge energy prices. In the past 10 years, residential electrical power rates have actually gone up by an average of 3 percent each year. By purchasing a solar energy system now, you can repair your electricity rate and safeguard versus unforeseeable boosts in electrical power expenses. If you're an organisation or property owner with fluctuating cash circulation, going solar likewise helps you better projection and handle your costs.

#4 Increase your home value

Multiple studies have actually discovered that houses equipped with solar energy systems have greater residential or commercial property values and sell more rapidly than non-solar homes. Appraisers are significantly taking solar installations into consideration as they value houses at the time of a sale, and as homebuyers become more educated about solar, demand 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 a key component of achieving energy self-reliance in the United States. By increasing our capacity to generate electricity from the sun, we can likewise insulate our nation from rate variations in worldwide energy markets.

#6 Develop jobs and assist your local economy

Inning accordance with The Solar Foundation, the solar industry included tasks at a rate nearly 12 times faster than the general 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 higher paying and can not be outsourced, they are a significant contributor to the United States economy.

#7 Secure the environment

Solar is an excellent way to reduce your carbon footprint. Structures are accountable for 38 percent of all carbon emissions in the United States, and going solar can considerably decrease that number. A common domestic solar panel system will eliminate three to four 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 necessary parts of an organization's culture and values. They likewise produce bottom line outcomes. Increasingly, consumers and neighborhoods are acknowledging and rewarding organisations that opt to run responsibly. Companies are finding that "green" qualifications are a powerful chauffeur of consumer buying decisions, producing 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 money down.

Many house owners opt to fund their photovoltaic panels with among the "pay-as-you-go" financing options. This means that a third-party company-- the solar provider-- owns the planetary system and looks after setup, maintenance, monitoring and repairs. You merely pay the solar provider for electricity-- less than you would've paid the energy business.

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

#10. Solar is a Secure Financial investment

The energy business are infamous for their fluctuating and unreliable electricity prices. There is clearly an upward pattern.

With photovoltaic panels and easy math, we can compute what does it cost? electrical energy will be produced, and most notably, at what cost, for a minimum of the next Twenty Years (fixed energy costs).

Frequently Asked Questions

What Is Thermal Energy?

Thermal Energy is heat energy. There are different types. Solar could be considered thermal since you use the suns heat, there is also geothermal. This is the first type that came to mind when i saw the question. Geothermal energy is when you use the earths internal heat as an energy source. This is often used to heat water supply for homes. It is often difficult to use on large scales due to "hotspots" being inconsistent and random. They will not be widespread and you will have to go certain depths to get the same amount of energy.

How Big Should Be The Solar Cells To Power An Office Cool/Warm Water Dispenser?
I Want To Design A Solar Powered Water Dispencer And It Also Cools And/Or Warms The Water For Drinking.Is It Practical To Install A 1Square Meter Solar Cell?

I just checked our water cooler, and it has a maximum draw of 144 watts. There is a type of cooler that dumps transfers heat from the cold side to the hot side, and that might do what you want. But I would not expect boiling water for tea, just warmer than room temperature, and chilled on the other side. A solar panel of 1 square meter could do this, but you would have to charge NiMH batteries to power the compressor, as the power draw is on and off, and you would not want to waste the energy of the solar panel when the compressor is off. The reason I say NiMH is that lithium would be expensive, and any kind of lead-acid, even sealed, is inappropriate for a food appliance.

You would want to heavily insulate the hot and cold reservoirs, and I assume that warm and cool water is not a critical application, so if the sun doesn't shine or the batteries run out, there's no harm.

How Can You Use Passive Solar Energy To Save On Heating And Cooling Bills In Your Home?
Please Help! I Have A Test Coming!

On an existing home, for heating it is a simple as opening the blinds on windows during the day to let sunlight in and closing them at night to keep the heat from escaping through the glass.
To keep the home cool, keep the blinds closed on the side of the home that has the sun shinning on it. This keeps the heat out and you use less A/C to cool the home.

If Electric Cars Such As The Chevy Volt Are Successful,Do We Have Power Station Capacity To Charge Them All? ?
Can We Charge Several Million Electric Batteries Daily?? If By Chance It Works, And I Do Have Doubts, Wouldn't It Cause Massive Increase On Electrical Demand At Out Power Generation Facilities? Of Course It Would, So My Real Question Is Can We Handle It Without A Massive Infusion Of Cash Into Building New Power Plants? Sounds Like Building Dams Would Drive Environmentalists Absolutely Crazy. Some Hard Decisions Must Be Made On Our Energy Choices By The Way- I Would Probably Buy At Least One Electric Car For The Family If The Economics Work Out.

No one has talked about the cost of electricity to consumers from charging these cars or the fact that electrical generation requires energy too - of which many sources are not green. The car may not have emissions but the coal-fired plant generating electricity does.

Since the car will be more expensive than a conventional car and there is a cost in the form of your electric bill, I'm not convinced the economics work out or that the vehicle is as green as billed unless we really ramp up solar and wind power.

There is no free lunch. I waited to buy my hybrid until it was proven technology and I was able to get a really good rebate on the vehicle from the manufacturer to offset some of the additional costs.
