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 conditioning system, cleaning clothes, seeing TELEVISION, cooking dinner. All while reducing your carbon footprint, and without burning fossil fuels or putting a pressure on the electrical grid. And while the ecological benefits of solar power are considerable, lots of homeowners find that the benefit, special functions, and expense savings of owning a solar power system are much more attractive.

Top 10 Benefits of Solar Energy

#1 Dramatically minimize or even eliminate your electric bills

Whether you're a property owner, business, or nonprofit, electricity costs can make up a large part of your regular monthly costs. With a solar panel system, you'll produce totally free power for your system's entire 25+ year lifecycle. Even if you don't produce One Hundred Percent of the energy you consume, solar will minimize your energy bills and you'll still save a great deal of loan.

#2 Earn a fantastic return on your financial investment

Photovoltaic panels aren't an expenditure-- they're one of the very best methods to invest, with returns rivaling those of more traditional financial investments like stocks and bonds. Thanks to substantial electricity expense 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 costs

One of the most clear cut benefits of solar panels is the ability to hedge energy rates. In the previous 10 years, property electrical energy rates have actually gone up by an average of 3 percent every year. By buying a solar energy system now, you can fix your electrical power rate and safeguard versus unforeseeable boosts in electrical energy costs. If you're a business or house owner with ever-changing money circulation, going solar likewise helps you much better projection and manage your costs.

#4 Increase your home or business worth

Numerous studies have actually found that homes equipped with solar energy systems have higher property worths and offer quicker than non-solar homes. Appraisers are significantly taking solar installations into consideration as they value homes at the time of a sale, and as homebuyers become more informed about solar, demand for homes equipped with photovoltaic panel systems will continue to grow.

#5 Increase U.S. energy self-reliance

The sun is a near-infinite source of energy and a crucial component of achieving energy self-reliance in the United States. By increasing our capability to create electrical power from the sun, we can likewise insulate our country from price changes in global energy markets.

#6 Develop jobs and help your local economy

According to The Solar Structure, the solar market added jobs at a rate almost 12 times faster than the overall U.S. economy in 2015, representing 1.2 percent of all jobs in the country. This growth is expected to continue. Because solar-related tasks tend to be higher paying and can not be outsourced, they are a considerable contributor to the United States economy.

#7 Protect the environment

Solar is a terrific method to minimize your carbon footprint. Buildings are accountable for 38 percent of all carbon emissions in the U.S., and going solar can substantially decrease that number. A normal residential photovoltaic panel system will remove 3 to 4 lots of carbon emissions each year-- the equivalent of planting over 100 trees each year.

#8 Demonstrate your dedication to sustainability

Sustainability and corporate social obligation are necessary components of an organization's culture and worths. They also produce bottom line outcomes. Progressively, customers and neighborhoods are acknowledging and rewarding services that decide to run responsibly. Organisations are finding that "green" credentials are an effective chauffeur of consumer acquiring decisions, creating goodwill and improving company results.

#9 Start Conserving 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 loan down.

Many house owners select to fund their solar panels with among the "pay-as-you-go" financing alternatives. This means that a third-party company-- the solar service provider-- owns the solar system and takes care of setup, maintenance, monitoring and repairs. You just pay the solar provider for electricity-- 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 utility companies are notorious for their changing and undependable electrical power costs. There is clearly an upward pattern.

With photovoltaic panels and simple mathematics, we can determine just how much electrical energy will be created, and most significantly, at what rate, for at least the next Twenty Years (fixed energy costs).

Frequently Asked Questions

How Much Energy You Need From A Solar Panel To Charge A Battery That Has 3.75 Volts?
What Is The Difference Between The &Quot;Output&Quot; And &Quot;Input&Quot; In A Charger? What Do You Call The Power From The Charger That Goes To The Cellphone? Output Maybe? Or Input? How Much Power The Charger Produces To Charge A Cellphone? Please Answer My Questions... Thank You!

To make things simple.....
I would look at the regular cell phone charger (wall plug type), and it says on it, for example, Output 5V DC 0.7 A
This is what your solar cell should deliver at full sun blast.
The regulating circuit for charging your cell phone battery is inside the phone, so even if your battery is 3.7Volt, the charger delivers 5 Volt.

Electrolysis Of Seawater To Form Hydrogen From Solar Energy.What Are The Pros And Cons?
If Possible, Please Explain The Pros And Cons In Detail. If There Are Cost Problems, What Exactly Would Be The Cost? Or Just Write The Pros And Cons

Here's the biggest problem: Hydrogen storage.

There's a reason why hydrogen engines aren't around, because transporting the hydrogen just isn't safe or effective.

What Are The Benefits Of Using Solar Energy To Heat Water In My Home?

1. Solar energy is renewable. We never have to worry about running out of sunlight or using it all up. The sun is a consistent power source meaning it's always going to be there every day.

2. Solar energy is environmentally friendly. Compared to fossil fuels which release greenhouses gases, carcinogens and carbon dioxide, solar cells don't release anything into the air.

3. Solar panels are extremely reliable. There are no moving parts so you don't have to worry about replacing anything. In fact, most people generate electricity for 1000s of hours with little or no maintenance.

4. Solar cells make no noise while collecting energy. There are no other renewable energy sources that are completely silent.

Can 1 Solar Panel Of 100 Watt Charge 2 Or More Batteries At One Time.?
I Am Trying To Design Back Up Power System Of 1000 Watt But I Am Confused, Do I Need A Solar Inverter (Charger) Or I Can Use A Regular 230 Volt Inverter( Charger) While I Can Use A Charge Controller With Solar Panel .

It all depends on your batteries.
If your solar panel provides a 12-13 volt charge with a 8.3 amp current (to dictate a 100 watt output) you should be able to directly connect this to your two 12 volt batteries (connected in parallel I hope!). You can then just get an inverter to run domestic appliances off the batteries, no other charging devices needed. Follow the maintainace instructions of your batteries though, using a decent 3 charger on them every other month and checking the electrolyte levels twice a year may double their lifespan. Never let them discharge below 40% if you can help it.

How long will you want a 1000watt draw from the backup system? If you're using two 100 amp hour batteries a drain from full to 40% of charge would only take about 1 and a half hours. If you need longer you'll need more batteries but beware, add too many and the resistance from the battery bank will prevent the solar panel from charging them.

update: Sounds like a reasonable use, you should be able to get away with a cheap modified square wave inverter plus a car battery charger which will keep your costs down. I'd reccomend phoning up the manufacturer of the solar panels to discuss their connection on your system but as far as I am aware you can connect them with no problems directly to the batteries.
