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 use the sun to power everyday life: running your a/c, cleaning clothing, seeing TELEVISION, cooking dinner. All while lowering your carbon footprint, and without burning nonrenewable fuel sources or putting a pressure on the electrical grid. And while the environmental advantages of solar power are considerable, many home owners discover that the benefit, unique features, and cost savings of owning a solar power system are even more enticing.

Top 10 Benefits of Solar Energy

#1 Drastically reduce or perhaps remove your electrical costs

Whether you're a house owner, business, or not-for-profit, electrical power expenses can make up a big portion of your monthly costs. With a solar panel system, you'll produce totally free power for your system's whole 25+ year lifecycle. Even if you don't produce One Hundred Percent of the energy you consume, solar will lower your energy bills and you'll still conserve a great deal of loan.

#2 Earn a fantastic return on your investment

Solar panels aren't an expense-- they're one of the very best methods to invest, with returns measuring up to those of more standard financial investments like stocks and bonds. Thanks to considerable electricity costs cost savings, the typical American house owner pays off their solar panel system in seven to eight years and sees an ROI of 20 percent or more.

#3 Secure versus rising energy expenses

One of the most clear cut benefits of photovoltaic panels is the ability to hedge energy costs. In the previous ten years, domestic electricity prices have increased by an average of 3 percent annually. By purchasing a solar energy system now, you can repair your electrical power rate and protect versus unpredictable increases in electrical power costs. If you're an organisation or house owner with fluctuating money circulation, going solar likewise assists you better forecast and manage your costs.

#4 Boost your home value

Multiple research studies have discovered that houses geared up with solar energy systems have higher residential or commercial property worths and offer more rapidly than non-solar homes. Appraisers are significantly taking solar setups into consideration as they value houses at the time of a sale, and as property buyers become more informed about solar, need for residential or commercial properties 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 key part of accomplishing energy independence in the United States. By increasing our capability to generate electrical power from the sun, we can likewise insulate our country from price changes in global energy markets.

#6 Create jobs and assist your regional economy

According to The Solar Structure, the solar industry included tasks at a rate nearly 12 times faster than the overall U.S. economy in 2015, representing 1.2 percent of all tasks in the country. This development is anticipated to continue. Due to the fact that solar-related tasks tend to be greater paying and can not be contracted out, they are a considerable contributor to the United States economy.

#7 Secure the environment

Solar is a terrific way to minimize your carbon footprint. Structures are responsible for 38 percent of all carbon emissions in the U.S., and going solar can significantly decrease that number. A normal residential solar panel system will get rid of three to four tons of carbon emissions each year-- the equivalent of planting over 100 trees yearly.

Significantly, consumers and neighborhoods are recognizing and rewarding services that decide to run properly. Companies are discovering that "green" qualifications are a powerful chauffeur of customer purchasing choices, creating goodwill and enhancing organisation results.

#9 Start Conserving from Day 1

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

Lots of homeowners decide to finance their photovoltaic panels with among the "pay-as-you-go" funding options. This means that a third-party company-- the solar service provider-- owns the planetary system and looks after setup, maintenance, monitoring and repair works. You simply pay the solar company for electricity-- less than you would've paid the energy company.

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

#10. Solar is a Secure Investment

The energy companies are well-known for their fluctuating and unreliable electricity rates. There is plainly an upward trend.

With photovoltaic panels and simple mathematics, we can compute how much electricity will be produced, and most notably, at what cost, for a minimum of the next 20 years (repaired energy expenses).

Frequently Asked Questions

A Cell Is Like A City Because.?
Okay, So I Have To Do A Project Like This. I Have All Of The Written Part Done, But Now I Have To Draw It :( I Am Not Sure How To Draw An Airport, Costco, Buildings, Construction Workers Etc Etc? How Should I Draw This? Does Anyone Have An Example? Thanks!

The nucleus is like City Hall. The mitochondria are the power plants. The ribosomes, the endoplasmic reticulum and the Golgi apparatus are assembly lines. The plasma membrane is like the City Limits. The lysosome is like the sewage treatment plant. The peroxosome is like a hazardous waste treatment plant. In plant cells, chloroplasts are like solar panels and the vacuole is like the landfill.

What Is The Maximum Amount Of Energy That Can Be Collected From Solar Power?
I Was Wondering What The Upper Limits Of Solar Power Is (If We Had 100% Efficient Solar Panels, How Much Power Would They Generate In Full Sunlight). I Know That It'S Impossible To Achieve 100% Efficiency But As I Said Before I'M Interested In How Much Energy Is Theoretically Available From Solar Power.

The Earth receives 174 petawatts (PW) of incoming solar radiation (insolation) at the upper atmosphere. Approximately 30% is reflected back to space while the rest is absorbed by clouds, oceans and land masses. The spectrum of solar light at the Earth's surface is mostly spread across the visible and near-infrared ranges with a small part in the near-ultraviolet.

Average over the entire earth = 164 Watts per square meter over a 24 hour day

8 hour summer day, 40 degree latitude 600 Watts per sq. meter for those 8 hours

2000 Watts per sq. meter in the tropics with the sun directly overhead.

How Do These Energies Work?
How Do Wind Energy, Hydro Power Energy, Solar Panel Energy, Geothermal Energy, And Natural Gas Energy Work? How Do They Save Energy Resources,Money, And The Environment?

First of all, they do not save energy resources. They are alternate energy sources. Whichever one you use the others are conserved. Wind energy turns blades attached to a generator. Solar panels convert sunlight to electric energy. Geothermal energy use steam to power a turbine generator. Natural gas is burned to turn water to steam to power a turbine generator.

Good Time To Buy Solar Panels?
Everyone In My New Neighborhood Seems To Be Buying Solar Panels Right Now With All The Incentives There Are...There Is A Company Called Astrum Solar Out Of Maryland That Destroys Any Competitor Prices Here In Pa. Because Of Extra Incentives I Guess. Right Now I Can Buy A System For $18,000 After All Promotions And Incentives....That Is For An 8.00 Size System And Quality Is 1,168 / 85% Is That A Pretty Good Prices? I Would See True Savings In 7 Years ....After That, $1500 Per Year Savings. I Just Worry About Warranty And Maintenance With The Buy Option.

Hey, that doesn't sound unreasonable. Also you know you don't have to worry about maintenance or warranty if you lease a system? You can save a bunch of money on your bill without any of the risk. Also, the size and price of your system is much less important than how much energy you use and then design the system around that since a system that is too big can end up costing you more money in the end than a smaller system since the rates utilities buy back power from you is so low. Let me know if you have any more questions. Also, you can get a fast quote from my company, Sungevity to see how what we design for you would compare to the quote you're looking at now.

Solar Panels, 1Kw Per Hour Or Day ?
Solar Panel Packages Have Different Levels Of Power. For Instance You Can Get A 1Kw System But Is This 1 Kw Per Hour Or Day. How Does This Work?

1 kW is the unit of measurement used. 1 kWh means you have 1 kW steady for an entire hour. In the case of solar panels, say you are using 100W panels. That means at any given time assuming ample sunlight is hitting the panel, it is producing 100W.

You wanted a kW so you will need ten panels at 100W (less or more depending on the rating of the panel) this will give you 1kW. That means at any given time you can get as many watts as needed up to 1kW (1000W). Say the sun hits the panels for eight hours a day, you will have 1kWh each of those eight hours, or 8kWh per day. Unless you have a system of batteries to capture unused power, you will only be able to use up to 1kW (1000W) at any given time, any unused power will be wasted.

Solar panels alone are not like a generator, they do not slow down or speed up depending on demand. Even with no load on them, they will produce as much power as they are able, and without batteries that power is lost.

To simply answer your question, if you get a 1kW system, that means 1kW per hour.
