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 utilize the sun to power daily life: running your ac system, cleaning clothes, seeing TELEVISION, cooking supper. All while decreasing 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 considerable, lots of property owners find that the benefit, distinct features, and cost savings of owning a solar power system are even more attractive.

Top Ten Benefits of Solar Energy

#1 Considerably decrease and even remove your electrical expenses

Whether you're a homeowner, service, or nonprofit, electrical energy expenses can comprise a big portion of your month-to-month expenses. With a solar panel system, you'll create totally free power for your system's whole 25+ year lifecycle. Even if you don't produce 100 percent of the energy you consume, solar will decrease your energy bills and you'll still save a lot of cash.

#2 Earn an excellent return on your investment

Solar panels aren't an expenditure-- they're one of the finest methods to invest, with returns measuring up to those of more standard investments like stocks and bonds. Thanks to significant electricity bill cost savings, the typical American property owner settles their photovoltaic panel system in 7 to eight years and sees an ROI of 20 percent or more.

#3 Protect versus increasing energy expenses

One of the most clear cut advantages of solar panels is the capability to hedge energy prices. In the previous 10 years, residential electrical power prices have gone up by an average of 3 percent each year. By investing in a solar energy system now, you can fix your electricity rate and safeguard against unforeseeable boosts in electrical energy costs. If you're a company or house owner with fluctuating capital, going solar also helps you better projection and handle your expenses.

#4 Increase your home or business worth

Several research studies have actually discovered that homes geared up with solar energy systems have greater home worths and sell quicker than non-solar homes. Appraisers are increasingly taking solar setups into consideration as they value houses at the time of a sale, and as property buyers end up being more educated about solar, demand for homes equipped with photovoltaic 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 achieving energy independence in the United States. By increasing our capability to produce electrical energy from the sun, we can also insulate our country from price variations in global energy markets.

#6 Develop jobs and assist your local economy

According to The Solar Foundation, the solar industry included tasks at a rate nearly 12 times faster than the total U.S. economy in 2015, representing 1.2 percent of all tasks in the country. This growth is anticipated to continue. Because solar-related jobs tend to be greater paying and can not be contracted out, they are a considerable contributor to the United States economy.

#7 Secure the environment

Solar is a fantastic way to minimize your carbon footprint. Structures are accountable for 38 percent of all carbon emissions in the United States, and going solar can significantly decrease that number. A typical property solar panel system will remove three to four lots of carbon emissions each year-- the equivalent of planting over 100 trees each year.

#8 Show your dedication to sustainability

Sustainability and business social duty are essential elements of an organization's culture and values. They also produce bottom line results. Progressively, customers and neighborhoods are recognizing and rewarding companies that opt to run responsibly. Businesses are finding that "green" credentials are a powerful driver of consumer getting choices, developing goodwill and improving company outcomes.

#9 Start Conserving from Day 1

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

Numerous homeowners decide to finance their solar panels with among the "pay-as-you-go" financing alternatives. This indicates that a third-party business-- the solar supplier-- owns the solar system and looks after setup, upkeep, monitoring and repair works. You just pay the solar service provider for electrical energy-- less than you would've paid the energy business.

As of 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 notorious for their varying and undependable electrical power prices. There is clearly an upward pattern.

With solar panels and basic mathematics, we can calculate how much electrical energy will be generated, and most notably, at exactly what price, for at least the next Twenty Years (repaired energy costs).

Frequently Asked Questions

Are They Still Going To Sell Solar Panels For Two Dollars A Watt?
I Heard That They R Going To Sell Solar Panels For 2$ Is This True

I don't think a consumer can expect to pay this price, soon. Solarbuzz has been tracking retail panel prices for several years, and you can see that it's a little under $5 a watt, average, now. That means if you shop, you can find $4 a watt.

Depending on whom you believe, the manufacturer's prices should be around $3 a watt by the end of next year, for conventional crystalline silicon panels. But that's only for distributors that buy huge quantities.

Every year, there is hype about breakthroughs that will make panels $2/watt, or even $1/watt. While I feel confident they will get to this price eventually, it's been more like a gradual evolution, like the price of personal computers.

Does The Solar Panel Must Have The Exact Formula In The Output Of The Charger To Charge A Cell Phone Battery?
In My Case, The Output Of The Charger To Charge A Cell Phone Battery With 3.7 Volts Is 3.7 Volts And 355 Ma Which Equals To 1.3135 Watts… So If I Want To Charge My Cell Phone Battery Thru A Solar Panel, The Solar Panel Must Have 3.7 Volts And 355 Ma Which Equals To 1.3135 Watts... Is This Ok?? How Long (Hours) This Would Take?? Does The Solar Panel Must Have 3.7 Volts And 355 Ma To Charge My Cell Phone Battery Or Is It Ok That The Solar Panel Will Have Different Volts Or Only The Ma As Long As It Equals To 1.3135 Watts?? If It’S Alright, What Is The Maximum Volts Or Ma It Can Have?? I’M Very, Very Confused… Please Help Me…. Thank You Very Much!!!!! : )

I wonder how often you are going to ask this same question.....?
The answer is so simple:
Look at your "normal" (wall plug) charger for your phone.
It says there "Output: <soandso> V= (or DC), <soandso> mA".
And this is what your solar panel has to provide.

How Much Does It Cost To Buy Solar Panels?

If you means a house-sized installation (thousands of watts), then the panels cost about $4 a watt, so $8000 for 2000 watts worth of panels. But then, you need some other incidental parts, and someone has to install them. The installed price could be as high as $8-10/watt.

On the positive side, many areas have a federal and/or state tax credit or rebate. I know someone who ended up with a final price of $3/watt after getting back all the rebates.

The best way to find out about what's invovled is to look in your local phone book, and contact a solar installer for a free quote. You can always say no to the quote, but they'll help you understand how much energy you use, and what kind of system would be best for you.

Why Is Solar Panel Is So Expensive?
Even A Single Cell Is So Expensive.

Most solar cells (the best ones) are made from
silicon crystal that is grown very slowly.
Silicon crystals growth from pure silicon is
an extremely slow and expensive process.
Because of gravity and how the crystals are grown
it is very hard to grow large flawless crystals.
The biger the crystal the harder it is to make it
perfectly flawless, a requirement for it to work.
Pure silicon crystal ingots are very expensive items flawless or not.
I'm not sure what it runs but it is likely to be
more expensive that gold ingots.
Fortunately, most chips are small and one waffer
which is a very thin slice from an ingot
can make thousands of chips,
but only one solar cell.
There are new types of solar cells now that
do not cost so much...but the technology is new
and the cost has not come down yet.
Here is an example that uses nanostructure diamonds
of all things: http://www.advanceddiamond.com/
