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 ac system, cleaning clothes, enjoying TELEVISION, 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 ecological benefits of solar power are considerable, numerous property owners find that the benefit, distinct functions, and expense savings of owning a solar power system are even more attractive.

Top 10 Benefits of Solar Energy

#1 Considerably decrease or even remove your electric expenses

Whether you're a property owner, service, or nonprofit, electrical energy expenses can make up a big part of your month-to-month expenses. With a solar 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 consume, solar will reduce your energy expenses and you'll still conserve a great deal of loan.

#2 Earn an excellent return on your investment

Photovoltaic panels aren't a cost-- they're one of the best ways to invest, with returns matching those of more traditional financial investments like stocks and bonds. Thanks to considerable electricity bill cost savings, the average American homeowner pays off their photovoltaic panel system in 7 to 8 years and sees an ROI of 20 percent or more.

#3 Safeguard against rising energy costs

One of the most clear cut benefits of solar panels is the ability to hedge utility costs. In the previous 10 years, residential electrical power costs have actually increased by an average of three percent yearly. By investing in a solar energy system now, you can repair your electrical power rate and safeguard versus unpredictable increases in electrical energy costs. If you're a business or homeowner with changing money circulation, going solar likewise assists you better forecast and manage your costs.

#4 Boost your property worth

Several studies have actually found that houses geared up with solar energy systems have greater property values and offer quicker than non-solar homes. Appraisers are progressively taking solar setups into factor to consider as they value houses at the time of a sale, and as property buyers become more informed about solar, demand for homes geared up with solar panel systems will continue to grow.

#5 Boost U.S. energy self-reliance

The sun is a near-infinite source of energy and a crucial part of achieving energy independence in the United States. By increasing our capacity to produce electrical energy from the sun, we can also insulate our nation from price fluctuations in worldwide energy markets.

#6 Develop jobs and assist your local economy

According to The Solar Foundation, the solar industry added jobs at a rate almost 12 times faster than the general U.S. economy in 2015, representing 1.2 percent of all jobs in the nation. This development is anticipated to continue. Because 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.

Increasingly, consumers and communities are acknowledging and rewarding services that decide to run responsibly. Services are discovering that "green" qualifications are a powerful motorist of consumer buying decisions, producing goodwill and improving company results.

#9 Start Conserving from Day 1

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

Lots of house owners opt to fund their solar panels with among the "pay-as-you-go" financing alternatives. This implies that a third-party business-- the solar supplier-- owns the planetary system and looks after setup, maintenance, monitoring and repair works. You merely pay the solar company for electrical power-- 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 well-known for their changing and unreliable electrical energy costs. There is plainly an upward pattern.

With solar panels and simple math, we can calculate just how much electricity will be generated, and most significantly, at what rate, for at least the next 20 years (fixed energy expenses).

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.
