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

Numerous homeowners select to fund their solar panels with one of the "pay-as-you-go" financing choices. This suggests that a third-party company-- the solar supplier-- owns the solar system and takes care of installation, maintenance, monitoring and repairs. You just pay the solar provider for electrical energy-- less than you would've paid the utility business.

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

#10. Solar is a Secure Financial investment

The energy companies are well-known for their changing and unreliable electricity rates. There is clearly an upward pattern.

Frequently Asked Questions

What Do Environmentalist Groups Intend We Use For Energy?
No Nukes No Coal No Power No Computers No More Comments Oh And Windmills Kill Birds I Suppose We Should Go Back To The Caveman Day'S

Most "Environmentalists" know little of physics, engineering, and economics. They just follow like sheep other "Environmentalists" over the cliff of ignorance believing Solar and Wind will save us.

After all, it was our intelligent, well educated "Environmentalists" that killed our Nuclear Program when our power engineers tried to tell them it was the only alternative using today's technology that even has a chance of significantly reducing our dependence on foreign oil and produce the massive amount of reliable 24/7 energy we need that does not pollute.

So much for our University education system!

Help On Homework In Science Class!?
What Is Chemical Energy? I Just Need The Definition Of It. Thanks!

Chemical energy is a form of potential energy related to the structural arrangement of atoms or molecules. This arrangement may be the result of chemical bonds within a molecule or otherwise. Chemical energy of a chemical substance can be transformed to other forms of energy by a chemical reaction. For example, when a fuel is burned the chemical energy is converted to heat, same is the case with digestion of food metabolized in a biological organism. Green plants transform solar energy to chemical energy through the process known as photosynthesis, and electrical energy can be converted to chemical energy through electrochemical reactions.

What Is The Most Cost Effective Way To Make Gases Such As Hydrogen From Seawater, Using Pt In Electrolysis?
What Is The Most Cost Effective Way To Make Gases Such As Hydrogen From Seawater, Using Pt In Electrolysis?

Since energy is required to split the water to make H2, the cheapest source is the sun. Solar energy is the energy of choice for making hydrogen from sea water. Next would come nuclear. Do electrolysis during off-peak hours when there is generating capacity, but less demand. A source of energy that has not been developed is the energy in the sea itself. There is a lot of untapped energy in wave action, but there are no current methods for harnessing the energy in waves.

What Are The Advantages And Disadvantages?
What Are The Advantages And Disadvantages Of Using Solar Energy To Heat Water Rather Than Using Electric Immersion Heaters? For 6 Marks Please Help

hi well the advantages are obvious
if you are using 3 kw of energy tofor say 1 hour to run a bath full
and say it costs 20 pence a kw
and its bath night or if you have a power shower and you have a fomily of 5
thats £1 for he night
if you have a solar system with a larger tank it dont cost nothin lol
solar hw works better in sunny climes though and also
i know of a few systems that have to be covered if the people go on holiday
because the water isnt used the water in the indirect system (damn ok the water in the solar panels is not the water in your hot tap ,that water is heated indirectly via a coil of pipe that is inside of youre hot water tank ,so the indirect system is a solar panel piping going to the tank then from the tank with an extra bit to feed the system and in case it boils over )phew so if the solar pannel isnt covered it boils over

Why Is Mitt Romney So Much Better Than Obama?
I'Ve Been Watching All The Debates And He Is Just Amazing And Obama Is So Unconvincing, How Did Obama Even Get Elected? And Using Coal And Gas Is So Much Better Than Solar Energy.

I don't know much but I have to put the other answers in their place. First of all Mitt has experience running major businesses, that is something a president needs, Mitt is just so much smarter than Obama because he has excellent education and experience. Mitt also is simply appealing to the people because he is so smooth, he has good facts and is able to keep his cool. Obama tried to do his best but honestly it is time for him to give someone else a chance, someone who actually knows what he is doing. in 2008 neither candidate was great, the fact that he was black got many people interested in making history, so that is why he won. I am sorry but I don't have anything to say about coal and gas compared to solar.
