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 homeowner to utilize the sun to power everyday life: running your ac system, cleaning clothing, watching 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 benefits of solar power are significant, many residents find that the benefit, unique features, and cost savings of owning a solar power system are much more enticing.

Leading Advantages of Solar Energy

#1 Significantly lower or even eliminate your electric expenses

Whether you're a house owner, service, or not-for-profit, electrical power expenses can make up a large part of your regular monthly expenditures. With a solar panel system, you'll produce totally free power for your system's entire 25+ year lifecycle. Even if you do not produce One Hundred Percent of the energy you take in, solar will lower your utility bills and you'll still conserve a lot of cash.

#2 Make a great return on your investment

Photovoltaic panels aren't an expense-- they're one of the very best ways to invest, with returns matching those of more standard financial investments like stocks and bonds. Thanks to significant electricity costs savings, the average American property owner pays off their solar panel system in seven to 8 years and sees an ROI of 20 percent or more.

#3 Secure against increasing energy costs

One of the most clear cut advantages of photovoltaic panels is the ability to hedge utility rates. In the previous 10 years, property electrical energy rates have actually increased by approximately three percent every year. By investing in a solar energy system now, you can fix your electrical power rate and secure against unpredictable boosts in electricity costs. If you're a service or property owner with rising and falling capital, going solar likewise helps you much better projection and handle your costs.

#4 Increase your home or business value

Multiple studies have discovered that houses geared up with solar energy systems have higher property worths and offer quicker than non-solar homes. Appraisers are increasingly taking solar setups into factor to consider as they value homes at the time of a sale, and as homebuyers end up being more informed about solar, demand for homes equipped with photovoltaic panel systems will continue to grow.

#5 Increase U.S. energy self-reliance

The sun is a near-infinite source of energy and an essential component of achieving energy self-reliance in the United States. By increasing our capability to produce electricity from the sun, we can also insulate our country from price variations in worldwide energy markets.

#6 Develop jobs and help your regional economy

Inning accordance with The Solar Foundation, the solar market added jobs 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 have the tendency to be higher paying and can not be contracted out, they are a substantial contributor to the United States economy.

#7 Safeguard the environment

Solar is a fantastic method to decrease your carbon footprint. Structures are accountable for 38 percent of all carbon emissions in the United States, and going solar can considerably reduce that number. A common residential solar panel system will eliminate three to four loads of carbon emissions each year-- the equivalent of planting over 100 trees every year.

#8 Show your dedication to sustainability

Sustainability and business social responsibility are necessary components of a company's culture and values. They also produce bottom line results. Increasingly, consumers and communities are recognizing and rewarding businesses that decide to run responsibly. Businesses are finding that "green" qualifications are an effective driver of consumer buying choices, creating goodwill and improving organisation results.

#9 Start Conserving from Day 1

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

Numerous house owners pick to fund their solar panels with one of the "pay-as-you-go" funding choices. This means that a third-party business-- the solar supplier-- owns the solar system and looks after installation, upkeep, tracking and repairs. You merely pay the solar company for electrical energy-- 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 Investment

The utility business are notorious for their varying and unreliable electrical energy rates. There is plainly an upward pattern.

With solar panels and simple mathematics, we can compute how much electricity will be generated, and most significantly, at what price, for a minimum of the next 20 years (fixed energy costs).

Frequently Asked Questions

Costs Of Solar Thermal Energy?

Solar thermal is one of the least expensive and most effective ways to use solar energy.

There are different ways of using it to heat water or your home, some more costly than others. The overall cost will depend on where you live. The more temperate the climate the cheaper it'll be.

What Are The Benefits If All Cars Were Electric Versus All Gas?
So Heres My Thought. If All Cars Ran On Electricity, We Would Be Burning More Coal To Produce That Energy And Still Release Co2 Into The Atmosphere, So Whats The Exchange In This Case. Anyone Out There With Education In Environmental Chemistry/Science Be Able To Answer This?

Coal pollution should not increase if most cars switched to electric, and here's why:
*
1) It takes nearly the same amount of electricity to refine gasoline as it takes to charge electric cars (about 6 kilowatt-hours per gallon of gas, according to US Dept. of Energy.) So if gas usage goes down as EV usage goes up, electricity usage barely changes.
*
2) Coal usage is already declining. Today it makes up less than half the energy on the grid. This trend will continue. Solar is poised to become less expensive than coal in as little as 10 years from now.
*
3) Electric vehicles are 3 to 5 times more efficient than gasoline vehicles. More miles on less energy equals less overall pollution, no matter what you burn to make electricity.

Solar Powered Cell Phones?
Solar Powered Cell Phones Are Now Available In China And Prototypes Are In The Making In Germany. How Soon Will This Technology Make It To The Us?

Cell phones normally last a week or longer on a charge so why would you want to leave your cell phone setting in the sun to charge? Not many people stand in the sun with their cell phone hooked on the top of their heads?

This would be a useless product as far as I can tell. There are already portable solar cell phone and laptop chargers in the USA and I am sure in all other countries as well.

Nuclear Vs. Renewable Resources?
Are You Pro Or Anti-Nuclear Energy? Why Or Why Not? Preferably I Wanted To See The Points Of The Other Side - Because I'M An Anti One; I Don'T Want Another Technology That Will Harm The Environment.

Cautiously pro. The nuclear power industry does have an extremely good safety record. Chernobyl was a big exception, and was caused by poor engineering, poor maintenance, and poor training. More people die every year mining coal or drilling for oil than have ever died from nuclear power. However, the big unsolved problem is what to do with the nuclear waste. None of the "solutions" dreamed up so far are satisfactory, so until this is solved I would prefer to leave nuclear power alone and investigate other options (solar, wind, tidal, geothermal). These technologies could become cost effective if enough money is put into the necessary research and development.

Why Is Biofuel The Best?
My Class Is Doing A Debate On What Energy Is The Best. I'Ve Been Assigned To Be A Hippie Who Thinks Biofuel Is The Best Energy Source. I'M Making Signs (For The Hippies) And I Can'T Think Of Any Puns Or Phrases That Promotes Biofuel. I Also Need Possible Information About Biofuel And What They'Re Doing About The Food Shortage. Also, My Classmates Will Ask Tough Questions. So Providing Me With Possible Answers And Hard Questions So I Can Practice Would Be Great. Plus The Puns And Phrases For Biofuel. Thanks In Advance =]

It's not the best. Ethyl Alcohol produces more carbon dioxide than gasoline does. Further, it takes more fertilizer to grow nitrogen intensive corn, thus contributing to the consumption of large amounts of fossile fuels to make the fertilizer. Plus the fertilizer contaminates lakes, streams and the oceans. Biofuel is not the answer to the energy problem.

Mark my words - hydrogen fuel is the answer because combustion of hydrogen produces water and this produces no contamination, does not require the consumption of fossile fuels. Hydrogen could be created using solar power to generate electricity to split pure water into hydrogen gas and oxygen. An engine can be built that does this, splitting water into hydrogen gas through electrolysis and then combusting it with the oxygen which is separated - however, our government and strong corporate interests surpress this knowledge because too much money is at stake by corporate interests to make it happen yet on a large scale. Eventually, it will happen, but its going to take a lot more suffering on the part of humanity before those corporate interests get out of the way of common sense and progress.
