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.

"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

How Do I Make A Snow Remover For Solar Panels?

If your solar panels are thermal and not photovoltaic then you can reverse the flow and use the heat from the storage tank and melt the snow off of the units.

Alternatively you can invest in a heliostat (a solar following mirror) that will increase the efficiency of the solar panel by directing more of the sun's rays at the panel. A hemostat is usually more vertical than a solar panel as it tracks the sun and snow will more easily fall off of it. In this way you will use the sun to melt the snow off.

One of the reasons that solar panels are good located off the ground is that they are more easily cleaned and snow is removed. If your installation is up high then it is a good idea to also have a catwalk so that you can safely get up and remove the snow and clean them. (I would not install roof panels without a catwalk for this reason.)

Using heat tape can also be a good idea. But there are types made for outdoors to melt snow and ice off of a roof. If you will apply them to the exterior then make sure that it is not a type intended to be placed indoors. Most systems like this work best if they are on while the snow is falling.

So we have melting and physically removing. In the area of prevention there may be a way to physically cover them and then remove the cover. There may be a way to do this with with ropes from the ground. Another approach may be helpful if snow is predominately from one direction and you might create a "snow fence" that will create a micro environment where snow will build up robbing the snow from landing on the collectors.1

Solar Panel Prices - What's The Cost To Build Or Buy A Residential Solar Panel?
I'm Keen On Building My Own Solar-Powered Alternative Energy System In Place This Summer.

A single solar panel with 12V electric output costs between $100-250 to buy or build. Most of these are the portable variety (which cost less) and is a good way to reduce dependence on your utility company and generate your own electricity.

A residential solar panel mounted on rooftops costs more -- like the 185-watt Mitsubishi panel which costs $1020. But with states like CA, MA, IL, AZ (and a lot others) giving you tax incentives up to 30% the installation cost, the reasons for going green are becoming more and more better.
