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 property owner to use the sun to power daily life: running your air conditioner, washing clothes, viewing TV, cooking dinner. All while minimizing your carbon footprint, and without burning nonrenewable fuel sources or putting a stress on the electrical grid. And while the ecological benefits of solar power are significant, numerous property owners find that the benefit, distinct functions, and expense savings of owning a solar power system are even more attractive.

Top 10 Benefits of Solar Energy

#1 Considerably reduce or perhaps remove your electrical bills

Whether you're a house owner, service, or not-for-profit, electrical power expenses can make up a large part of your monthly costs. With a photovoltaic panel system, you'll generate complimentary power for your system's whole 25+ year lifecycle. Even if you do not produce 100 percent of the energy you consume, solar will reduce your utility costs and you'll still conserve a great deal of cash.

#2 Make a fantastic return on your financial investment

Solar panels aren't an expenditure-- they're one of the very best methods to invest, with returns rivaling those of more traditional investments like stocks and bonds. Thanks to significant electricity expense cost savings, the typical American house owner pays off their solar panel system in 7 to eight years and sees an ROI of 20 percent or more.

#3 Protect versus rising energy expenses

One of the most clear cut benefits of solar panels is the capability to hedge energy prices. In the past 10 years, residential electrical power prices have increased by an average of three percent each year. By purchasing a solar energy system now, you can fix your electrical energy rate and protect versus unforeseeable increases in electricity costs. If you're a service or homeowner with ever-changing capital, going solar likewise assists you much better forecast and handle your expenditures.

#4 Increase your residential or commercial property value

Numerous research studies have actually discovered that houses equipped with solar energy systems have greater property values and sell more rapidly than non-solar homes. Appraisers are significantly taking solar installations into consideration as they value homes at the time of a sale, and as homebuyers end up being more informed about solar, demand for homes equipped with solar 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 component of achieving energy self-reliance in the United States. By increasing our capability to create electricity from the sun, we can likewise insulate our nation from cost fluctuations in global energy markets.

#6 Create jobs and help your local economy

According to The Solar Structure, the solar industry included jobs at a rate almost 12 times faster than the general U.S. economy in 2015, representing 1.2 percent of all jobs in the nation. This growth is anticipated to continue. Because solar-related tasks tend to be higher paying and can not be contracted out, they are a substantial contributor to the U.S. economy.

#7 Protect the environment

Solar is an excellent method to reduce your carbon footprint. Buildings are accountable for 38 percent of all carbon emissions in the U.S., and going solar can considerably decrease that number. A common domestic photovoltaic panel system will get rid of three to 4 heaps of carbon emissions each year-- the equivalent of planting over 100 trees each year.

#8 Show your commitment to sustainability

Sustainability and business social responsibility are essential parts of an organization's culture and values. They also produce bottom line results. Progressively, consumers and communities are acknowledging and rewarding companies that opt to run properly. Services are finding that "green" credentials are an effective chauffeur of customer buying decisions, creating goodwill and enhancing service outcomes.

#9 Start Saving from Day 1

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

Many homeowners decide to finance their solar panels with among the "pay-as-you-go" funding choices. This means that a third-party business-- the solar company-- owns the solar system and takes care of setup, maintenance, monitoring and repairs. You just pay the solar supplier for electrical energy-- less than you would've paid the energy business.

Since June 2013, 75% of all American houses have access to pay-as-you-go solar.

#10. Solar is a Secure Investment

The energy business are well-known for their varying and undependable electrical energy rates. There is plainly an upward trend.

With solar panels and simple mathematics, we can determine what does it cost? electrical energy will be produced, and most significantly, at what cost, for at least the next Twenty Years (fixed energy costs).

Frequently Asked Questions

How Much Energy Is Used Making A Solar Panel?

A100 watt solar panel retails for about $500. Chances are it costs less than a quarter of that to build. Over its lifetime it will generate somewhere around 35,000 kilowatt hours of electricity. At ten cents a kilowatt hour that is $3,500. Is it worth it? You bet.

How Can I Get My House Converted To Work On Solar Energy And Is It Expensive?
I Saw An Episode In Extreme Makeover Home Edition Were They Built A House For A Family And They Used Solar Energy To Power The House I Like That Not Just Because Is Good For The Envirorment But Because I Think Is Better For Us Too, If We Take Care Of The Earth We Live In I Think Is Going To Last More.

Hurray for caring about Mother Earth. The cool thing about converting to solar energy is that you can do it a little at a time if you want to. One of the best sources in checking out all the options is the magazine Mother Earth News. This magazine has been around for as long as I can remember and have hundreds if not thousands of articles about solar energy projects. A good library will probably have back issues and I imagine you can go on line and get some article straight from the source if you are so inclined. As with any project it is the proper installation that is key in making the project worthwhile. So you either do it yourself, right, or hire people who have many years of experience in doing these types of installations. You might also be interested to know that the government gives very nice tax right offs for folks who convert to solar energy and some states can be very generous indeed. So check out all your different sources both on line and at the library to get the best information you can. Enjoy the process it is really fascinating overall.

What Do You Believe In For Energy?
I Believe In Nuclear For Electricity And Hyrdgogen For Personal Transportation. What Do You Believe In?

Hydrogen and wind energy are not stable forms of energy. They do produce good amounts but the are subject to the environment (or climate). Solar is a good option as far as producing energy goes, however, right now the technology to produce it is so costly, that it is not possible to use on a mass grid system and like the others is still subject to daily change (I mean the sun does set)! Nuclear is a clean form of energy. The risks are huge if something was to go wrong. But in all honestly, nuclear energy plans have far better service records than any major industry. They have little to no major accidents (excluding 3-mile Island - the was a major fluke as far as statistics go). But there is always a chance with anything. I think the combination of all would serve us best for now. And recapture of emssions from stream and ethenoyl get better each day, reducing cost for all of us. Alternative fuels, such as those from corn, soy beans, algea, sugarcane are our future! Once we master the technologies of using those the use of coal, oil and natural gas will decrease alot. Just my two cents!

How Can Solar Satellite Energy Be Used To Generate Electricity?
Where Is This Energy Source Used In The Us? Where Can This Energy Be Used? How Is The Energy Source Transported? What Are The Advantages Of Using It? What Are The Disadvantages? Thanks So Much. =)

NASA use high-efficiency Gallium-Arsenide photovoltaic arrays to generate electricity for satellites including the Space Station, Hubble telescope, spy satellites, communication satellites etc. These are about 40% efficient.

On a much larger scale such arrays could generate electricity in space, but would have to be transported back to earth perhaps in the form of a very high-energy microwave beam. The receiving station on earth would regenerate the electricity from the microwave energy.

Advantages? - zero carbon, 24/7 energy (The sun always shines in space)

Disadvantages? - the microwave beam could do serious harm if it went off-course. Also if the satellite is geo-stationary the earth's shadow would reduce the overall energy output.

How Did Germany Become A World Leader In Solar Energy Technology ?
Despite Being A Nation Of Cloudy And Sometimes Cold Weather.

in short, its because they came up w the technology though the weather least permits it.

the germans were the first to come up with the siemens reactor process technology back in mid 1900s. the siemens reactor its a highly efficient and cost, energy effective process to convert silicon to polysilicon where the end product, polysilicon are used to manufacture solar cells for the solar panels.

today, the siemens reactor is a much sought after silicon process (though there are other methods of extracting polysilicon), and so have been patented and kept under strict confidentiality, to only the big players of the solar energy industry companies from well developed countries like usa, germany, uk while china and taiwan as major stake holders are catching up in the game.
