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

Frequently Asked Questions

At What Point Will The Cost Of Gas Make It More Affordable To Start Using Some Of The Other Alternative Energy
Sources: Like Solar Panels To Convert Water To Hydrogen To Fuel Our Cars - We Have The Technology, Just Don'T Want To Spend The Money To Convert Over. So What Is The Break Off Point: $10/Gallon, $20/Gallon?

It will happen much lower than that. With the inevitability of rising prices, and the dangerousness of sending money overseas, allowing foreign nations that much control over us, and basically sending our money to nations that use that money to fund terrorism, the research and development money and conservation measures, long blocked by the influence that Big Oil money has wielded in Washington, will be brought to bear.

The point of profitable return on alternative technology will get lower and lower as the technology improves. They've already increased, many times over, the energy output of solar cells, to the point where they are on par, in terms of energy cost with building a new coal plant.

I think we've already reached the break off point where we WANT to go to other sources, so now technologies that are new or have been ignored will quickly gain on our outmoded status quo.

The huge breakthrough that will happen in ethanol production will be when they figure out cellulose fermentation - then the stalks and wood product and paper waste will be able to be broken down into starches that can be converted to ethanol - basically waste from current agriculture will be used, so there would be ethanol production without putting a hit on the food production, and not requiring additional farming.

Making the switch to solar energy has never been so rewarding. Take advantage of federal tax credits and state rebates, offered to those who install PV and solar thermal systems. In addition to saving money, you actually earn credits (SREC's, Green Tags) for producing solar power - which in turn is then purchased by utility -
I could say is that you have to lay out money upfront.

You can recycle almost everything. Like bottles, plastic, boxes paper, tires, light bulbs and much more.

How Do Solar Panels Help The Environment?
Please Help Me For My Hm

Solar Panels are powered by renewable energy. It captures sun radiation and transform it to energy DC ( direct current) then with help of inverter energy is transformed to AC (alternative current)

Solar panels do not create any pollution during process of creating energy. They are pollution free. By using solar PV you can save some CO2 and make your home environment friendly.

By using Solar Panels you also save natural resources which are used to generate energy in old fashion technology which use coal or even the now technology like nuclear electricity they also sending CO2 to atmosphere.

What Do People Mean When They Say Their Solar Panels Can Give About 20 Cents Per Kwh?
What Do People Mean When They Say Their Solar Panels Can Give About 20 Cents Per Kwh? Do They Base It On What The Panels Costs And How Much You Could Save For An Amount Of Time?

When we buy power we pay about 14 cents per kWh (in NSW). The NSW government will not legislate any buy back scheme because of the power and influence of the coal industry. In SA, the consumer pays about 21 cents - the energy utility has to buy it back, if the consumer is grid connected, at 42 cents. Hence the 20 cents per kWh. VIC and QLD consumers can get an additional 6 cents more than they pay, but it also depends on what your energy provider is prepared to pay. If you are not grid connected, ie you use batteries to store and use the power later, the government refunds half your establishment costs. This is under the Remote Area Power Scheme (RAPS), which helps people who would have to pay in excess of $30,000 to have electricity connected.
I recently advised a client (I am a sustainability consultant/designer) about a system, 2.4kW, that should generate the same amount of energy that they use each year. It should take them 14 years to pay back their investment - less if the price of power increases - most likely with the privatisation of energy in NSW.

Why Dont People Use Solar Panels, Water Ect For Their Electricity?
I Watch This Show Invention Nation And They Are So Awesome On There. They Meet Inventors And Come Up With Awesome Ways To Be Money/Debt Free Of Power Like Solar Panels To Power The Entire House- No Bad Emissions/ Price Free. So Why Arent We Doing This To Everyone's Houses? I Cant Because I Am In Government Housing And I Cant Change Government Property But Other People Can So Why Dont They?

Right now it is prohibitively expensive. The upfront cost of the solar panels is more expensive than the money they would save for most people.
It would cost most houses at least $20k in solar panels and other equipment to generate the kind of electricity they would need, and most people just don't have that kind of money, and while there are some government rebate programs to offset some of the costs, they only cover a fraction of the total costs.
When solar panels start getting cheaper, we will see more and more of this.
