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 air conditioner, cleaning clothing, viewing TV, cooking supper. All while decreasing your carbon footprint, and without burning nonrenewable fuel sources or putting a pressure on the electrical grid. And while the ecological advantages of solar power are significant, lots of property owners find that the convenience, distinct functions, and expense savings of owning a solar power system are even more attractive.

Top Ten Advantages of Solar Energy

#1 Dramatically lower and even remove your electric costs

Whether you're a homeowner, business, or nonprofit, electricity expenses can make up a large part of your monthly costs. 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 consume, solar will reduce your energy costs and you'll still save a lot of money.

#2 Earn a fantastic return on your financial investment

Solar panels aren't an expenditure-- they are among the very best methods to invest, with returns measuring up to those of more standard investments like stocks and bonds. Thanks to considerable electrical energy costs savings, the typical American homeowner settles their solar panel system in seven to 8 years and sees an ROI of 20 percent or more.

#3 Safeguard versus rising energy expenses

Among the most clear cut benefits of solar panels is the ability to hedge utility costs. In the past 10 years, property electrical energy rates have actually increased by an average of three percent yearly. By buying a solar energy system now, you can repair your electrical energy rate and secure against unforeseeable increases in electrical power costs. If you're a business or property owner with changing capital, going solar likewise helps you better forecast and manage your costs.

#4 Boost your property value

Multiple research studies have discovered that houses geared up with solar energy systems have greater home worths and offer more rapidly than non-solar homes. Appraisers are progressively taking solar setups into consideration as they value homes at the time of a sale, and as property buyers become more educated about solar, need for residential or commercial properties equipped with photovoltaic panel systems will continue to grow.

#5 Boost 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 capability to produce electrical energy from the sun, we can also insulate our nation from cost changes in worldwide energy markets.

#6 Create jobs and help your regional economy

Inning accordance with The Solar Structure, the solar industry added tasks at a rate almost 12 times faster than the total U.S. economy in 2015, representing 1.2 percent of all jobs in the nation. This growth 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 considerable contributor to the United States economy.

#7 Protect the environment

Solar is a terrific way to reduce your carbon footprint. Structures are accountable for 38 percent of all carbon emissions in the U.S., and going solar can significantly reduce that number. A typical domestic photovoltaic panel system will eliminate 3 to four lots of carbon emissions each year-- the equivalent of planting over 100 trees every year.

#8 Demonstrate your dedication to sustainability

Sustainability and business social duty are important elements of a company's culture and values. They also produce bottom line results. Significantly, consumers and communities are acknowledging and rewarding businesses that decide to run responsibly. Companies are discovering that "green" credentials are an effective driver of customer purchasing choices, producing goodwill and enhancing organisation results.

#9 Start Saving from Day 1

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

Lots of homeowners decide to fund their solar panels with one of the "pay-as-you-go" financing options. This implies that a third-party company-- the solar supplier-- owns the solar system and looks after setup, upkeep, monitoring and repair works. You merely pay the solar supplier for electricity-- less than you would've paid the utility business.

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

#10. Solar is a Secure Financial investment

The utility companies are infamous for their fluctuating and unreliable electrical energy prices. There is plainly an upward pattern.

With photovoltaic panels and simple mathematics, we can determine what does it cost? electrical power will be created, and most notably, at what price, for at least the next 20 years (fixed energy expenses).

Frequently Asked Questions

How Would A Person Set Up A Solar Sytem With Battery Backup For A 1500W Quartz Heater?
I Have A 110V 1500W 13.63 Amp Quarts Heater. I Am Confused About What Kind Of Battery System It Would Require To Power The Heater For 8 Hours At Night And How Many Panels It Would Take To Charge The Batteries To Full Capacity.

This heating strategy is not really plausible or cost effective.
The calculations should explain why not.
1500W×8hrs=12kWh
A 100 Ampere hour battery supplies 5 Amperes for 20 hours (design basis duty cycle).
110/12×13.63= 125 Amperes continuous battery drain.
Ideally, you would need 25 100AH batteries for a stable power supply which is not self destructive,
and which will have a reasonable (5 year) service life.
The charging requirement would be 12 kWh per day plus losses (10-15%).
The area of solar panels depends on the average values of insolation (solar energy), and
whether the panels are rigid or capable of tracking.

A better alternative is "Trombe" storage (qv).
Other alternatives are propane, butane, wood, and coal.

How can solar energy be used for heating?

Water can be pumped through solar panels that collect heat energy from the sun. Often these are mounted directly on the roof of homes at an angle approximately equal to the latitude. It is pointed South in the Northern hemisphere and North in the Southern hemisphere.

What are the advantages of using lenses or mirrors in systems that collect solar energy?

By focusing the light you can increase the temperature of the water. The water can be used with less water pumped and it can even get hot enough to generate electricity through a steam generator.

In which area or region (polar or equatorial region) can benefit most from the application of solar energy? Why?

Equatorial regions benefit most, because a smaller surface area is required to collect equivalent energy. A smaller surface energy means less cost.

Measuring solar power.

How can you measure the local power output from the nearest continuous running fusion reactor, the sun?

Voltage output from a PV cell on a clear day.

You are planning to install 15 sq. meters of solar cell on your roof. How much power will you expect them to produce?

10 sq ft can produce about 125 watts
15 sq ft is about 188 watts.

But on cloudy days and at Northern latitudes and Winter it will be less.

The most efficient solar panels PV are about 15% of the light energy. It works more efficiently on sunny days, and will not generate power at night.

Relating color and radiation absorption

What color absorbs infra red radiation best?

Black.

If you wanted the roof of your house to absorb the sun's radiation to help heat your house, would you buy black or white shingles?

Black

What color shingles would you buy if you lived in a climate that was always sunny and warm?

White to reflect the unwanted heat.

Reflections

How does the angle at which light strikes a mirror compare with the angle at which the same light is reflected?

The reflection of light on a mirror is the same angle relative to the surface of the mirror (in the opposite direction of course).

How Do You Purify Water Without Solar Energy?
How Do You Purify Water Without Solar Energy In Emergency?

You can use iodine tablets, add a small amount of bleach, boil it, or use an ultrafilter.

What Is The Future Of Solar Energy?
I Want To Know, What You All Think About The Future Of Solar Energy?

I don't think the cost of solar energy will go up, at least not until it is a commodity energy source and everyone uses it. On the other hand, I see all centrally-generated energy going up in price, as it always has. So solar will become a better and better deal as the years pass. It's already a good deal in places like Hawaii and California, even without subsidies.

Whats Best: Electric, Water, Solar, Or Wind Technology?
And Why Is It The Best One?

Solar is the best of them all !!!

Why?

B'coze Its the only energy that is evenly distributed around the earth and you can harvest solar energy form any where .

BUt wind energy can be obtained only in windy areas.
and hydro energy can be obtained in mountain valley .


So SOLAR IS THE BEST !!! :) :)
