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 daily life: running your air conditioning unit, washing clothing, viewing TELEVISION, cooking supper. 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 home owners discover that the convenience, distinct features, and cost savings of owning a solar power system are even more alluring.

Leading Advantages of Solar Energy

#1 Dramatically lower or perhaps remove your electrical expenses

Whether you're a property owner, service, or nonprofit, electrical energy costs can comprise a large part of your monthly expenditures.

Even if you do not produce One Hundred Percent of the energy you take in, solar will minimize your energy expenses and you'll still save a great deal of money.

#2 Earn a fantastic return on your investment

Photovoltaic panels aren't an expenditure-- they are among the finest methods to invest, with returns equaling those of more conventional financial investments like stocks and bonds. Thanks to considerable electrical power expense cost savings, the average 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 costs

One of the most clear cut advantages of solar panels is the capability to hedge utility costs. In the previous ten years, residential electricity rates have actually increased by approximately 3 percent yearly. By investing in a solar energy system now, you can fix your electrical energy rate and secure versus unforeseeable boosts in electrical energy expenses. If you're an organisation or house owner with fluctuating capital, going solar likewise assists you much better projection and manage your expenditures.

#4 Boost your residential or commercial property value

Multiple studies have found that homes equipped with solar energy systems have higher property worths and offer more rapidly than non-solar houses. Appraisers are increasingly taking solar installations into factor to consider as they value houses at the time of a sale, and as property buyers become more informed 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 element of accomplishing energy self-reliance in the United States. By increasing our capacity to create electrical power from the sun, we can likewise insulate our country from cost fluctuations in global energy markets.

#6 Create jobs and assist your local economy

#9 Start Saving from Day 1

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

Many property owners pick to finance their photovoltaic panels with one of the "pay-as-you-go" funding choices. This suggests that a third-party company-- the solar supplier-- owns the planetary system and takes care of setup, maintenance, tracking and repairs. You just pay the solar company for electricity-- less than you would've paid the utility business.

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 varying and undependable electrical power costs. There is plainly an upward pattern.

With solar panels and basic math, we can compute just how much electrical energy will be produced, and most importantly, at exactly what price, for a minimum of the next Twenty Years (repaired energy expenses).

Frequently Asked Questions

What'S Up With My Solar Panel?
I Have (2) 22010 Sunlinq Solar Panels And I Decided To Try One Out Today. Each Is Rated At 12W 12V 800Ma. My Batteries In My Xbox Controller Ran Out So I Figured I Would Charge Them With My Solar Panel. I Had Good Sun This Morning. When I Hooked Everything Together The 'Ready' Light Was Lit For About 10 Seconds, Then The 'Charge' Lights In Both Bays Of My Charger Began Blinking. I Switched The Batteries To The Other Bay, But Got The Same Result So I Took Them Inside And Plugged The Same Charger And Batteries Into The Wall Outlet And They Started Charging And Finally Finished. I Tested My Solar Panel In Good Morning Sun And Got 15+ Volts. Does That Sound Probable? I Bought Some Expensive Rechargeable Batteries And Would Like Them Not To Be Destroyed. I Read The Instructions That Came With The Charger And It Says It Has A Bad Cell Detection Feature And Will Flash The 'Charge' Lights When A Bad Battery Is Detected. But They Work Fine When Plugged Into The Wall Outlet. I Am A Novice In The Area So Any Help Is Appreciated.

How were you connecting your batteries to the solar panels? If you were connecting them directly to the 12V output from the panels you were probably overloading the panels and causing the voltage to drop. You could probably charge 10 NiMH or NiCd batteries in series. The voltage of the batteries would add up to 12 volts and be fairly compatible with your solar cells. If you connected them in parallel so the voltage of the batteries were still 1.2 volts and could easily take far more than the 800 mA your solar panels put out. This would cause the voltage from the solar panels to drop and the panels would assume a bad battery and blink the warning.

How Effective Are Solar Panels Now In N E With Our 40&Quot;+ Snowfall This Month?
How Does The Snow Cover Get Removed From The Panels?

Just as there are three types of solar panels there are three answers + to your question. For solar photovoltaic panels that are used to make electricity the fine print that comes with the panels says that you have to remove the snow from the panels in order for them to work. There are actually rakes made for this purpose. http://www.roofrake.com/Productpages/sno... As an aside the efficiency of the panels will also be maintained if the panels are cleaned of dust and debris. The maintenance of removing snow and dust is one argument for having the panels on a rack on the ground.

Solar Thermal panels are intended to capture the sun's heat. Two types that make hot water are flat panels and vacuum tube collectors. The vacuum tube collectors work better in colder and cloudy areas but their efficiency prevents heat loss that might melt snow. Most of a light snow will fall between them but you are back to maintenance with a heavier snow. Flat panels are less efficient and will melt a light snow off of the panels for a heavier snow you will need the roof rake.

The last type of solar panel are solar air panels. These are most often mounted on the side of a house rather than the roof as they are intended to provide hot air to the living spaces. They are essentially like little greenhouses. Unless the snow is building up against the side of the house these should be free from a snow problem.

How Do Solar Panel Led Grow Lights Work?
I'M Just Curious Because Would You Be Able To Put Them On A Timer Like 18/6 On Or 12/12 Because A Lot Of Plants Are Photo-Period

Very expensively.
To replace a $150 400 watt metal halide lamp with solar powered LED's would break down as follows.
60 watts of LED $150
60 watts of solar panel with inverter $250.
2) deep cycle 12V batteries $200.
$600 vs $150

When You Power A House With Solar Panels.....?
The Batteries That The Solar Panels Charge For Nighttime, How Long Do They Last? Like Total Lifetime

Unless you live in a remote location there is no need to have a storage system. I have a system that is tied to the grid, I generate about 75% of my own energy. During the day when I'm generating more than I need I sell it back to my utility, basically my meter runs backwards, then at night I use what I need. This type of system is much less expensive than an off grid system. With my state rebate and fed. tax credit, I will break even no later than my 6th year.

Advantages And Disadvantages Of Using Solar Panels?
Thanks

Solar energy is a renewable energy resource and there are no fuel costs. No harmful polluting gases are produced.

Disadvantages
Solar cells are expensive and inefficient, so the cost of their electricity is high.
Solar panels may only produce very hot water in very sunny climates, and in cooler areas may need to be supplemented with a conventional boiler.
Although warm water can be produced even on cloudy days, neither solar cells nor solar panels work at night.
