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 house owners to use the sun to power everyday life: running your a/c unit, cleaning clothes, enjoying TV, cooking supper. All while reducing 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 substantial, many residents find that the benefit, unique functions, and cost savings of owning a solar power system are much more attractive.

Top 10 Advantages of Solar Energy

#1 Significantly lower or even eliminate your electrical bills

Whether you're a property owner, organization, or nonprofit, electrical energy costs can make up a big portion of your month-to-month expenses. With a photovoltaic panel system, you'll produce complimentary power for your system's whole 25+ year lifecycle. Even if you do not produce 100 percent of the energy you take in, solar will reduce your utility bills and you'll still conserve a lot of cash.

#2 Make a great return on your financial investment

Solar panels aren't a cost-- they are among the best methods to invest, with returns matching those of more traditional investments like stocks and bonds. Thanks to significant electricity costs cost savings, the average American house owner settles their photovoltaic panel system in 7 to 8 years and sees an ROI of 20 percent or more.

#3 Protect against increasing energy expenses

One of the most clear cut benefits of photovoltaic panels is the capability to hedge utility prices. In the past 10 years, property electrical power prices have actually increased by an average of 3 percent yearly. By investing in a solar energy system now, you can fix your electrical energy rate and secure against unpredictable increases in electrical energy costs. If you're a service or homeowner with rising and falling cash flow, going solar also helps you much better forecast and handle your expenditures.

#4 Increase your house worth

Multiple studies have actually discovered that houses geared up with solar energy systems have greater home values and sell more rapidly 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 end up being more educated about solar, demand for properties geared up 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 crucial element of achieving energy independence in the United States. By increasing our capacity to create electrical energy from the sun, we can also insulate our country from price fluctuations in international energy markets.

#6 Create jobs and assist your local economy

According to The Solar Structure, the solar market added jobs at a rate almost 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. Since solar-related jobs have the tendency to be greater 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. Buildings are responsible for 38 percent of all carbon emissions in the United States, and going solar can substantially decrease that number. A typical domestic photovoltaic panel system will eliminate 3 to 4 lots of carbon emissions each year-- the equivalent of planting over 100 trees yearly.

#8 Demonstrate your commitment to sustainability

Sustainability and corporate social obligation are necessary components of a company's culture and worths. They also produce bottom line results. Increasingly, customers and neighborhoods are acknowledging and rewarding companies that decide to operate properly. Organisations are finding that "green" credentials are an effective chauffeur of customer buying choices, developing goodwill and enhancing service 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 cash down.

Many property owners select to fund their photovoltaic panels with among the "pay-as-you-go" financing choices. This means that a third-party business-- the solar supplier-- owns the solar system and looks after installation, upkeep, tracking and repair works. You simply pay the solar supplier for electrical energy-- less than you would've paid the utility business.

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

#10. Solar is a Secure Investment

The energy business are notorious for their varying and unreliable electrical power costs. There is clearly an upward pattern.

With photovoltaic panels and easy math, we can compute how much electricity will be generated, and most notably, at exactly what rate, for at least the next Twenty Years (fixed energy costs).

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.

The Lease

  • Low, fixed payments each month
  • System insurance for 20 years, including maintenance
  • Flexible end-of-term options, including system upgrade, lease extension, and free panel removal

Power Purchase Agreement (PPA)

  • We own the solar panel system
  • $0 down for installation
  • Customers only pay for the solar energy that they use

Purchase

  • Customer pays for the system upfront and owns the system
  • System monitoring and maintenance for 20 years
  • Receive 30% federal tax credit
  • See a return on investment within 7-10 years

What happens when the contract for my lease is finished?

We provide our customers with a few different options for when their lease contract is up. Customers can upgrade their equipment to the newest solar technology available, extend the agreement, or have the panels removed at no cost.

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

Where Does The Suns Energy Go?
Hi, Ive Recently Learnt The Law Of Conservation (Energy Can'T Be Lost Or Gained, Only Converted), And So I Wondered Where All This Heat Energy Goes To. I Know Some Of It Bounce Back Out (Greenhouse Effect N'All That), But Still, Thats A Lot Of Accumalated Energy.

If Earth stays at a constant temperature, then it is emitting as much light as it's receiving from the Sun (heat in = heat out, so no net heat change). It does this by reflecting about 30% of incoming sunlight and then it heats up and re-radiates the other 70%.

Everything with a temperature radiates light, and this is explained by Planck's law combined with the properties of the object:
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Planck%27s_...

Mostly Earth radiates at infrared. If you heated it up a lot, it would radiate in the visible (like when you heat up iron and it glows red, or a tungsten light bulb heats up and gives out light). That is how the solar energy eventually escapes.



Before it escapes, however, it might move into the ocean, or be used to evaporate some water, or be absorbed and re-emitted loads of time by greenhouse gases. Here's a schematic to try and get your head around!

How Can Heat Trapped In Car Interiors Be Converted To Electricity Or Stored For Energy Conservation?
Anyone Who Has Parked A Car In Summer Heat Knows That A Car Acts As A Giant Solar Collector. The Air In The Car Is Warmed By Sunlight; The Heat Is Trapped Inside The Car Interior; And Temperatures Rise To Around 120 Degrees Fahrenheit Or More. This Excess Heat Seems Like A Great Lost Free Energy Resource. I Know That Research Is Being Done In Methods To Convert Heat To Electricity. Is Anyone Looking At A Device To Capture This Heat Energy From Car Interiors? If A Device Is Not Practical For One Individual Car, What About Huge Factories, Office Complexes, Shopping Centers, Or Other Places Where Large Numbers Of Cars Are Parked And Stay Parked For Hours At A Time? Couldn'T A Heat Collection System Be Devised To &Quot;Siphon Off&Quot; The Heat From The Interior Of All Those Autos And Turn It Into Some Sort Of Useful Energy Resource? Does Anyone Have Ideas Or Know Of Developments In Progress To Look At This Idea? I Saw Where A Complex In Sweden Is Recycling/Reusing The Excess Heat That Escapes From People'S Bodies (And Other Sources) And Saving 20 Percent On Heating Costs. If That Can Be Done, Surely Some Practical System Could Be Devised To Reuse The Heat Trapped In All The Cars Around Urban Areas! And If The Method Could Make Your Auto Cooler And More Comfortable At The Same Time, What A Wonderful Bonus That Would Be.

This is basically a solar heating system and not a very efficient one. If you want to use solar power to heat something it can be done much better and economically using a system designed specifically for that purpose.

Why Can'T Solar And Wind Energy Be Stored In Hydrogen?
One Of The Problems With Solar/Wind Energy Is That There Is No Easy Way To Store The Energy Produced. This Means Expensive, Environment-Destroying Transmission Lines Have To Be Built From A Solar / Wind Farm To The Destination Where The Energy Will Ultimately Be Used. The Opposite Is True For Nuclear, Coal, & Gas. Simply Don'T Burn The Fuel, And It Will Remain Unused Indefinitely. You Can Store It As Long As You Want To And Move It From Place To Place And Release The Energy To Do Work Only When You Need To. So Yeah... Unfortunately Wind And Solar Farms Generate Energy That Has To Be Used Immediately. You Can Store Small Amounts In Traditional Batteries, But There Is No Way You Can Store Enough To Power A Whole City For A Year. Here'S My Idea: Use The Electrical Energy From Wind And Solar Farms To Break Up Water Via Hydrolysis Into Oxygen And Hydrogen. Release The Oxygen Into The Air (I'M Sure No One Will Complain That We'Re &Quot;Polluting&Quot; The Air With Life-Giving Oxygen!) And Store The Hydrogen. Yes, It'S A Flammable Gas But With Today'S Technology And Safety Devices, It Can Be Safely Stored And Transported. Then, Whenever You Need Energy, Simply Burn The Hydrogen. Those Of You Who Have Taken Chem 101 Know That The Only &Quot;Waste&Quot; Product From Burning Hydrogen Is 100% Pure Water. It'S A Win-Win Environmentally And Energy-Storage Wise. There'S No Need For Toxic Chemicals In Batteries To Store Energy, And There'S No Need To Burn Anything That Creates Smoke Or Other Toxic Waste Products Or Pollution. I'M Sure I'M Not The First One To Think Of This. So My Question Is... Why Isn'T My Idea Being Implemented On A Mass Scale? What'S Wrong With It?

The problem is that there is little widespread dependency on wind and solar power, and is largely used for specific, small scale applications where nearly all of the power gained is utilised as a 'top up' to conventional power sources. This means there is little to no surplus in energy gains, and if there is then it is unlikely that the facilities would be available (or affordable) due to its limited usage.

The current profitability of wind and solar power is low enough as it is, and it is highly unlikely that small, renewable energy companies, while having to compete with large and well established fossil fuel companies, will be able to afford the facilities for cost effective hydrogen production and storage on a large enough scale. Most renewable energy companies are still fighting to regain the costs of initial project developments; it’s unlikely there will even be a surplus to convert to hydrogen in many cases as these companies are selling all the energy they can at the rate they can supply it.

How Do I Clean My Photovoltaic (Solar) Panels?
I Have Flat Solar Panels (Like This Http://Www.Sanyo.Com/Industrial/Solar/Index.Cfm?Productid=1232) Mounted On My Roof. Even After Hosing Them Down, They Still Have A Fine Coating Of Pollen, Etc. I Really Don'T Want To Get Onto The Roof To Clean Them, So Is There Anything Out There That Will Help Me Get Them Clean From The Ground? Or Something To Make It Easier If I Do Have To Get Up There?

If yours are covered in glass, like mine, try those window washer thingies that they use in gas stations. I know you will have to climb up there to use them, but it makes it quite easy and quick to clean...

How Can You Use The Grant You Get For Repairs To Your House.?
The Program Is 15000 Toward Repairs. I Was Wondering What You Could Do For Repairs. Could You Get A Fridge And Stove If The House Dont Have One. And Carpet And Tile

Would have to know exactly what program you are talking about but typically its only structural/permanent items in the house so appliances usually don't count.

But floors doors windows walls countertops decks patios A/C Furnace hotwater heater all good If you did solar panels you could double up cause theres grant and tax creds out for that now too.
