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 resident to utilize the sun to power everyday life: running your air conditioning system, cleaning clothes, enjoying TELEVISION, cooking dinner. All while decreasing your carbon footprint, and without burning nonrenewable fuel sources or putting a stress on the electrical grid. And while the environmental advantages of solar power are significant, lots of residents find that the convenience, unique features, and expense savings of owning a solar power system are even more enticing.

Top Ten Advantages of Solar Energy

#1 Considerably minimize or perhaps remove your electric expenses

Whether you're a property owner, business, or nonprofit, electricity costs can make up a big portion of your month-to-month costs. With a photovoltaic panel system, you'll create free power for your system's whole 25+ year lifecycle. Even if you don't produce 100 percent of the energy you take in, solar will reduce your utility costs and you'll still save a lot of money.

#2 Make a terrific return on your financial 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 investments like stocks and bonds. Thanks to substantial electrical power expense savings, the average American homeowner pays off their solar panel system in seven to eight years and sees an ROI of 20 percent or more.

#3 Protect against increasing energy costs

One of the most clear cut advantages of photovoltaic panels is the capability to hedge energy costs. In the previous 10 years, residential electrical power costs have increased by approximately 3 percent annually. By buying a solar energy system now, you can fix your electrical energy rate and safeguard against unpredictable increases in electricity expenses. If you're a company or homeowner with rising and falling capital, going solar also helps you much better projection and manage your expenses.

#4 Increase your residential or commercial property value

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

#5 Increase U.S. energy independence

The sun is a near-infinite source of energy and a key part of achieving energy self-reliance in the United States. By increasing our capacity to generate electricity from the sun, we can likewise insulate our nation from cost changes in international energy markets.

#6 Develop jobs and help your local economy

Inning accordance with The Solar Structure, the solar market added tasks at a rate nearly 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. Since solar-related tasks tend to be greater paying and can not be contracted out, they are a substantial factor to the U.S. economy.

#7 Safeguard the environment

Solar is an excellent way to decrease your carbon footprint. Buildings are accountable for 38 percent of all carbon emissions in the U.S., and going solar can substantially reduce that number. A normal property solar panel system will remove three to 4 heaps of carbon emissions each year-- the equivalent of planting over 100 trees yearly.

#8 Demonstrate your commitment to sustainability

Sustainability and corporate social duty are necessary elements of an organization's culture and values. They also produce bottom line results. Progressively, customers and communities are recognizing and rewarding companies that opt to run properly. Companies are finding that "green" credentials are an effective motorist of customer purchasing decisions, producing goodwill and improving company outcomes.

#9 Start Saving from Day 1

Solar purchase power arrangements (PPAs) and solar leasing has actually made it possible for property owners to go solar for little or no loan down.

Lots of house owners pick to fund their solar panels with one of the "pay-as-you-go" funding alternatives. This indicates that a third-party company-- the solar service provider-- owns the solar system and takes care of setup, upkeep, tracking and repair works. You just pay the solar provider for electrical power-- 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 Financial investment

The energy business are infamous for their changing and unreliable electrical energy rates. There is clearly an upward pattern.

With photovoltaic panels and basic math, we can compute what does it cost? electrical power will be produced, and most importantly, at exactly what rate, for a minimum of the next 20 years (fixed energy costs).

Financing

What are the various payment options?

We have many flexible purchasing agreements for customers who would like to install a new home solar system. There are three different payment options, making them a viable choice for customers of all budgets. The payment options include Lease, PPA, and Purchase.

What is the warranty?

The Lease and PPA include a 20-year warranty during the lifetime of the system. This warranty exceeds that of most other solar installers’ warranties.

Frequently Asked Questions

How Much Does A Solar Energy System Cost And Are Their Still Tax Breaks?
Hello, I Have Been Wanting To Buy Solar Panels For A Long Time, Just Bought My Own Home So I Finally Have A Place To Do It! Just Wondering How Much Do They Cost On Average For A 1300 Square Foot House And Is There Anything That Would Help Me Implement Getting Them Like Tax Breaks?

First tax breaks for installing solar panels are primarily based upon local energy companies and the state in which you live. You will find some more specific information about incentives using the sources below. Some of the incentives will be specific to your situation.

Secondly every system is custom designed primarily based upon your usage and needs. This is why you see the cost of a PV system is based upon units (kw)

But you should also know that "solar energy" comes in 2 forms: light and heat. We convert the light to electricity using photovoltaic panels that have a commercial efficiency between 5% to 20%. We convert the sun's heat to .... heat using solar thermal panels that are far cheaper to make and install. Because they are also up to 80% efficient and making hot water can consume 30% of a household's energy they typically have a payback period 4 times faster than the PV panels.

Solar thermal panels come with a built in energy storage system (the hot water tank) while batteries or a grid tie are the only way deal with excess light energy from a PV system. A good time to make the decision to purchase a solar hot water system is at the end of the warranty period of your current water heater.

So you will want to look at costs and incentives for both types of panels.

This Q & A forum is probably not the best place for what should essentially be a more specific search (see sources below) but you will see in many places the "average" cost of an installed PV system as it slowly becomes lower: https://emp.lbl.gov/sites/all/files/pv_s...

Here are two views on the cost of a solar hot water system:

5-10 Reasons Why Solar Energy Is Better Than Fossil Fuels Please Answer!!!!!?
I Need 5-10 Reasons Why Solar Energy Is Better Than Fossil Fuels. Please Answer Because This Is For An Argumentative Essay Due Tomorrow For Me!

1) Fossil Fuels can be used 24 hours per day, while solar energy can only be "harvested" during daytime.
2) Fossil Fuels work rain or shine, while solar power is limited to periods of clear sky or thin clouds.
3) Fossil Fuel power production plants require only a few dozen acres to provide continuous power to hundreds of thousands of homes, while solar power requires thousands of acres of farmland or desert (flat areas) to produce the same amount of power.
4) Fossil Fuels contain energy that can be moved anywhere and used anytime, while solar energy must be harvested in real time and used in real time, because we lack the battery capacity to store enough solar energy for times when no sunlight is available.
5) Fossil Fuels are cheap and abundant, with a worldwide estimate of over 100 years of oil, 250 years worth of natural gas, and as much as 1000 years worth of coal, all in our current proven reserves. Solar power will be available for several billion years, but takes an enormous amount of land and expense to use.
6) Fossil Fuels provide the resources necessary for manufacturing everything from clothing to plastics and cannot be replaced by solar power, so fossil fuels will still need to be mined and tapped even if solar power could provide enough power to replace fossil fuels.
7) Fossil fuels work anywhere on the planet, including areas that have little sunlight due to latitude or normal climate (cloudy, foggy, etc). Norway, Sweden, Finland and the northern half of the USSR could not depend upon solar power in the winter when days are either extremely short or non-existent (above the arctic circle).
8) Fossil Fuels can replace solar energy, but solar energy cannot replace fossil fuels. In order to be sure that we have enough energy available always, fossil fuel power plants have to be ready to go all the time, which means that mining and drilling must continue so that there will be a ready supply of fuel for the fossil fuel power plants.

9) Oh, wait. You wanted to know why solar energy was better, not fossil fuels. My bad.

Solar Energy For Brooding(Poultry) Purpose? Any Idea How To Develop One?

This is one of the classic Permaculture design tutorials; so get on a permaculture course. I recommend any books by Patrick Whitefield http://www.patrickwhitefield.co.uk/

eg put the chicken house on the north of a greenhouse - provides fodder, heat, extra water harvesting. & extra CO2 & compost material from chicken help plants grow .

What Are Some Rising, Or Already Well Established, Solar Or Wind Power Companies?
International Companies Are Acceptable As Well. Does Anyone Know Of Any Companies Which Are In The Solar Or Wind (Or Any Alternative Source Of Energy) Power Industry? Or Any Innovative Companies As Well. Thank You

I think rather than asking people here you'll get better results by searching for the answer in Google.

A Question For Creationists...?
Why Do You Denounce The Theory Of Evolution Simply Because You Think That It Contradicts The Bible? The Heliocentric Theory (Ie, The Theory That States That The Sun Is The Center Of Our Solar System And The Earth Revolves Around It) Contradicts The Opening Passages Of Genesis So Much More Than The Theory Of Evolution Does, Yet You Don'T Deny This Theory Because It Has Been Observed And Objectively Proven Countless Times Over. Besides, Evolution Only States That The Genetic Makeup Of A Group Of Organisms Changes Between Successive Generations. It Makes No Claims About How Life Began, How The Universe Began, Or How Exactly Life Developed Along The Evolutionary Path. This Obviously Does Not Contradict The Idea That God Created Life, And If You Have Faith In God It Is In No Way A Stretch To Say That He Guided Evolution To Serve His Purposes. And Just For Clarification: A Scientific &Quot;Theory&Quot; Is Not An Opinion. It Is A Model To Explain Natural Phenomena That Can Be Empirically Observed And Tested. The Colloquial Meaning Of The Word &Quot;Theory&Quot; Is Called A Hypothesis In Scientific Terms, And Evolution Passed That Stage A Long Time Ago.

Gee whiz. What scripture says that the earth is the center of our solar system? That's a new one for me. Show he proof and I won't argue.

..and sure God can guide evolution, but Genesis sounds more like genetic engineering on God's part. For example it says he made modern animals "after their kind," that is similar in DNA structure to their prehistoric counterparts. Ofcourse, it means one could mistakenly apply evolution in this case, as we have.

Also be careful about believing that a theory is proven. On these very same pages and in scientific journal you can find the term String Theory, yet this explanation about the nature of the universe is completely unproven. Evolution is still just a logical suggestion of how life progressed on earth, yet it need not be the only logical suggestion, as so many demand.
