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.

#3 Safeguard versus rising energy costs

In the past 10 years, residential electrical energy prices have gone up by an average of three percent yearly. By purchasing a solar energy system now, you can fix your electrical energy rate and safeguard against unforeseeable increases in electrical energy costs. If you're a company or property owner with fluctuating capital, going solar likewise assists you much better forecast and manage your expenses.

Multiple studies have found that houses geared up with solar energy systems have greater property worths and offer more rapidly than non-solar homes. Appraisers are significantly taking solar setups into factor to consider as they value homes at the time of a sale, and as property buyers end up being more educated about solar, demand for homes 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 capacity to produce electricity from the sun, we can likewise insulate our country from price fluctuations in global energy markets.

#6 Create jobs and help your regional economy

According to The Solar Foundation, the solar market included jobs at a rate nearly 12 times faster than the total U.S. economy in 2015, representing 1.2 percent of all jobs in the country.

Solar is a terrific way to decrease your carbon footprint. Buildings are responsible for 38 percent of all carbon emissions in the United States, and going solar can significantly decrease that number.

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

Lots of property owners choose to fund their photovoltaic panels with among the "pay-as-you-go" funding options. This indicates that a third-party company-- the solar provider-- owns the solar system and looks after installation, maintenance, tracking and repair works. 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 homes have access to pay-as-you-go solar.

With photovoltaic panels and easy mathematics, we can calculate what does it cost? electrical power will be generated, and most significantly, at exactly what rate, for a minimum of the next Twenty Years (fixed energy costs).

Frequently Asked Questions

Sunrun Solar Tax Benefits?
When You Get Sunrun To Install Solar Panels On Your House With Their No Down 18/20 Year Power Agreement, Does The Homeowner Get Any Federal Tax Credit? Or Does Sunrun Gets All The Rebates And Tax Credit?

You can bet that Sunrun will still make a return on the investment and since the only way for solar to give a viable return is through the federal subsidies, somehow the subsidies will sink to their bottom line.

Howmany Solar Panels Would I Need To Run My House?

A few months ago I thought about doing the same thing. Forget it, too costly. Cheapest I could find was about $1600.00 to burn a 200 watt light bulb. Would take several of these just for lighting. If it was cost effective, everyone would be doing it. Less than 1% of electricity is produced in the US by solar electric panels. Solar heat is different, cheap ways to do this.

Analogy, How Is A Cell Like A Fort?
I Read A Lot I'M Not Very Good A Science. Thanks For The Help.:) Your The Best! Cell Membrane Cytoplasm Nucleus Golgi Apparatus Ribosomes Mitochondria Vacuole Chloroplast Cell Wall Endoplasmic Reticulum(Smooth And Rough)

The most obvious comparison between a cell and a fort is a barrier surrounding the whole structure. Both closely control what goes in and out of the structure. Beside that they are completely self reliant. In short:
Cell Membrane: Fort Wall
Cytoplasm: Roads/walkways
Nucleus: Control Center
Golgi apparatus (we should leave out) they secrete chemicals out of the cell if that is the cells purpose
ribosomes: Central Mainframe Computer
Mitochondria: Energy Plants
Vacuoles: Waste Management/ Police
Chloroplasts(plants only) Solar Panels for energy collection
Cell Wall: Fort wall for plants
Endoplasmic Reticulum: Mail Service

Urgent Solar Panel Help Needed Asap!!! 20 Volts, 0.7 Amps!?
It'S Been 9 Days Since This Issue Began, And Just Now Did I Realize The Issue Was My Solar Panel Itself. It Gives 17-22 Volts, But Only 0.7 Amps In Full Sunlight An Hour Before Sunset. I Can'T Check It Any Sooner Than That Because I Am Still In School. I Need Help Immediately! I Go On Winter Vacation In 4 Days And I Want This Fixed Asap! In The Above Photo It Reads 0.34 Because The Sun Was Setting Once I Found Out How To Open This Black Box On The Back Of The Panel. It Is Connected To Little Holes That Were There In The Metal Of The Panel. The Best Answer Will Receive 5 Stars If It Fixes The Issue. I'Ve Made Contact With The Manufacturer (Windy Nation Inc.) Just Moments Ago And Still Am Awaiting A Response. Maybe Some Advice From Others Will Help To?

Without the model number and specs of your panel, it's hard to give a detailed answer.

If this is a new setup, possibly this is normal operation. It is near sunset, after all, and the sun is coming in at a low angle. As an example, it's 8 am where I live right now, maybe half an hour after sunrise, and I just read 96 watts coming from our array. At this time of year, we see about 2100 watts at noon.

So look for indications that what you see is not normal. If there is more than one panel in the system, compare your suspect panel with another, for short circuit current, and open circuit voltage. If the system was working at a certain performance level, and suddenly failed, that's also a sign that something went wrong.

Why Doesn'T California Use Solar Energy To Solve Its Power Crises?
Seriously, There Is Not A Single Cloud In The Sky In Sunny Old California, How Could Someone Not Think Of Using Solar There?

Give the politicans some slack huh.

Solar energy is pretty pathetic as an energy source by itself, try it yourself. Get a torch run on solar power with no batteries and see how much light and power you can get out of it. Sure it works, but compared to batteries... its weak, really weak.

Now while solar energy is all good and nice, it is no where near the point where it could save a city from an energy crisis, no where near enough. I wouldn't leave a huge thriving city in the hands of solar power, that would be almost certain chaos.

Solar power won't have its own feet without subsidies for many many years, that science learning period and experimentation will take a while and in the mean time your area needs power. One day without power would mean complete chaos.

Politicians have brains, and if the solution were soo easy they'd do so, but its not all back and white. Drilling in Alaska is the best option to save the energy crisis, support would be good instead of ignorant, naive attacks.
