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 use the sun to power daily life: running your air conditioning system, cleaning clothing, viewing TV, cooking dinner. All while reducing your carbon footprint, and without burning fossil fuels or putting a stress on the electrical grid. And while the ecological advantages of solar power are significant, many home owners find that the convenience, special functions, and cost savings of owning a solar power system are a lot more attractive.

Top 10 Advantages of Solar Energy

#1 Drastically decrease and even remove your electrical expenses

Whether you're a property owner, company, or not-for-profit, electricity costs can comprise a big part of your monthly costs. With a photovoltaic panel system, you'll generate 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 decrease your utility bills and you'll still conserve a great deal of cash.

#2 Make an excellent return on your financial investment

Photovoltaic panels aren't an expense-- they are among the very best ways to invest, with returns measuring up to those of more conventional investments like stocks and bonds. Thanks to considerable electrical power expense savings, the typical American property owner pays off their photovoltaic panel system in 7 to 8 years and sees an ROI of 20 percent or more.

#3 Safeguard versus rising energy costs

Among the most clear cut benefits of solar panels is the capability to hedge energy costs. In the past ten years, residential electrical power costs have actually gone up by approximately 3 percent every year. By investing in a solar energy system now, you can repair your electrical power rate and secure versus unforeseeable increases in electricity expenses. If you're a business or homeowner with changing money flow, going solar also helps you much better forecast and manage your costs.

#4 Boost your home or business value

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

#5 Boost U.S. energy self-reliance

The sun is a near-infinite source of energy and an essential part of attaining 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 worldwide energy markets.

#6 Develop jobs and assist your regional economy

According to The Solar Structure, the solar market added jobs at a rate almost 12 times faster than the general U.S. economy in 2015, representing 1.2 percent of all tasks in the nation. This development is expected to continue. Because solar-related jobs have the tendency to be greater paying and can not be outsourced, they are a considerable factor to the U.S. economy.

#7 Protect the environment

Solar is a fantastic way to decrease your carbon footprint. Structures are responsible for 38 percent of all carbon emissions in the United States, and going solar can considerably decrease that number. A common residential photovoltaic panel system will remove 3 to 4 tons of carbon emissions each year-- the equivalent of planting over 100 trees every year.

#8 Show your commitment to sustainability

Sustainability and business social obligation are essential elements of a company's culture and worths. They likewise produce bottom line results. Significantly, consumers and neighborhoods are acknowledging and rewarding businesses that select to run properly. Businesses are discovering that "green" credentials are a powerful motorist of consumer buying decisions, producing goodwill and improving business results.

#9 Start Saving from Day 1

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

Lots of homeowners select to fund their solar panels with among the "pay-as-you-go" funding alternatives. This indicates that a third-party business-- the solar service provider-- owns the planetary system and looks after setup, maintenance, monitoring and repairs. You simply pay the solar provider 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 utility companies are infamous for their changing and unreliable electrical power rates. There is clearly an upward trend.

With photovoltaic panels and basic math, we can determine what does it cost? electricity will be produced, and most notably, at exactly what price, for at least the next 20 years (fixed energy expenses).

Frequently Asked Questions

I Have 230 Watt 36 Volt Solar Panel, 1 100Ah 12 Volt Battery And A 12 Volt Inverter. Can I Use Them Together?
Can I Charge My 12V Battery With The 36V Solar Panel? How Can I Connect The 12V Inverter To This Array?

Solar panel output current 6.39A max.

Put a 3.6 ohm resistor rated 200 watt to drop 36V into 14V at charging current 6A. Connect this big resistor in between solar output and +12V battery terminal.

Fully charging 12V battery time is 17 to 20 hours.

If Solar Power Is Better Than Electric Why Aren'T Street Lights Solar Powered?
When There Is A Power Outage Solar Powered Street Lights Would Be More Senseable To Have Enabling Us To Still Be Able To See The Street And Eventually Save Money. And Help Prevent Looting.

Currently solar panels are only 30% efficient; they don't work very well so they aren't used very often. Most street lights are lit with electricity from the electric grid so they will be still lit even if the sun isn't out for a few days.

However, I have seen traffic warning signs like "School Crossing" that have a solar panel on them. I have also seen signs that have to be lit out in the middle of nowhere with a solar panel on them to charge them up. So it is done, it just isn't done very often.

Scientists are trying to increase the efficiency of solar panels to 40% at that point they start to become economical to use. Currently most solar powered panels actually use heat from the sun to heat water. This is one way to replace your large water heater with a smaller less energy using one. Also some houses in the right areas, which get enough sunlight and have the right southern exposure, use solar panels to provide hot water to heat the building.

Solar panels are not always something that transforms sunlight to electricity. Sometimes they are just panels with water inside.

You can’t trust the sun to power street lights, the solar cells are not powerful enough or efficient enough, the battery technology we have isn’t up to the job either. It is best to connect street lights to the main electric grid and that will be true for some time to come.

Your suggestion is a vaild one and has been looked at, but it can't work yet. However, there are some situations where a solar cell can be used to power street signs.

How Does A Solar Powered Camera Work At Night And/Or In Bad Weather?

When they say "solar powered", what they actually mean is "light powered". Such devices are fitted with panels that absorb light particles (photons) and the device then converts the photon energy into a small electric signal, which makes the device run. Even when there is no apparent "sunlight", you do have some light around you, however faint it might be. If there was no light, you will feel pitch-dark and won't be able to see anything.

So if your camera (or any other solar-powered device) has very sensitive solar panels, it would be good enough to catch the photons from this dull light and work from it.

How Does One Help Fight Global Warming?
I Really Want To Cooperate In The Fight Against Global Warming But I Am Faced With Reality Of Also Having To Earn My Keep. When Are Car Companies Gonna Mass Produce Hybrid Cars To Make Them Cheaper? When Will Solar Panels And Wind Turbines Be Cheap Enough So That Majority Of Office And Homes Will Be Able To Use Them? Lastly, When Will America Make A Stand Against Carbon Emissions From Its Factories And Automobiles That Has Made The Most Damage To The Ozone Layer And Has Contributed Much To Global Warming? Im Willing To Use Alternative Sources Of Energy If Only They Were Affordable And Are Available In The Market The Way Celphones And Mp3 Players Are. What'S Your Opinion On This Matter?

How Does A Solar Panel Works?
How Do I Hook Up Solar Panels To My Home

Kinetic energy of the solar photons in the 'light', hit the surface of the compound, displacing the molecular components in it, creating a flow of energy carrying corpuscles down the wire.

These - collected at the end of this circuit - produce energy sufficient to cause movement via the magnetic fields they cross on the either natural or electrically induced magnets they pass through.

Basic principles to have in mind, is that these panels only produce ONE type of energy: direct. From one side (+) to another (-), and you must follow this principle when connecting. My suggestion is find the supplier and get instructions. They usually have detailed information.

In order to hook up this panel, you must follow instructions.
