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 homeowner to utilize the sun to power everyday life: running your air conditioning unit, cleaning clothes, seeing TELEVISION, cooking dinner. All while minimizing your carbon footprint, and without burning fossil fuels or putting a pressure on the electrical grid. And while the ecological advantages of solar power are significant, numerous property owners discover that the convenience, distinct features, and cost savings of owning a solar power system are much more attractive.

Top 10 Advantages of Solar Energy

#1 Significantly minimize or perhaps remove your electric costs

Whether you're a homeowner, service, or nonprofit, electrical energy expenses can make up a big part of your month-to-month costs. With a photovoltaic 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 reduce your energy costs and you'll still conserve a lot of cash.

#2 Make a fantastic return on your financial investment

Photovoltaic panels aren't an expenditure-- they're one of the finest ways to invest, with returns equaling those of more traditional financial investments like stocks and bonds. Thanks to considerable electrical energy costs cost savings, the typical American house owner settles their photovoltaic panel system in 7 to 8 years and sees an ROI of 20 percent or more.

#3 Secure against rising energy expenses

Among the most clear cut benefits of solar panels is the capability to hedge utility rates. In the past 10 years, property electrical power costs have actually increased by approximately 3 percent annually. By purchasing a solar energy system now, you can fix your electrical energy rate and secure versus unpredictable boosts in electrical energy costs. If you're a service or house owner with ever-changing capital, going solar likewise helps you better projection and manage your expenses.

#4 Increase your home or business value

Numerous studies have actually found that homes equipped with solar energy systems have greater residential or commercial property worths and offer faster than non-solar houses. Appraisers are significantly taking solar setups into consideration as they value houses at the time of a sale, and as homebuyers end up being more educated about solar, need for properties geared up 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 a key element of attaining energy independence in the United States. By increasing our capacity to produce electrical energy from the sun, we can also insulate our country from price variations in worldwide energy markets.

#6 Create jobs and help your regional economy

Inning accordance with The Solar Foundation, the solar industry added tasks at a rate nearly 12 times faster than the general U.S. economy in 2015, representing 1.2 percent of all tasks in the nation. This growth is expected to continue. Since solar-related tasks have the tendency to be greater paying and can not be outsourced, they are a substantial contributor to the U.S. economy.

#7 Protect the environment

Solar is a great way to reduce your carbon footprint. Structures are accountable for 38 percent of all carbon emissions in the U.S., and going solar can substantially decrease that number. A typical residential solar panel system will eliminate three to 4 lots of carbon emissions each year-- the equivalent of planting over 100 trees annually.

#9 Start Conserving from Day 1

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

Numerous homeowners choose to finance their photovoltaic panels with one of the "pay-as-you-go" funding options. This suggests that a third-party business-- the solar company-- owns the solar system and takes care of installation, maintenance, monitoring and repair works. You simply pay the solar provider for electricity-- less than you would've paid the utility company.

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

#10. Solar is a Secure Investment

The energy companies are well-known for their fluctuating and unreliable electrical energy rates. There is plainly an upward trend.

With photovoltaic panels and basic math, we can compute what does it cost? electrical power will be created, and most notably, at exactly what price, for a minimum of the next 20 years (repaired energy expenses).

More Truth On Gw Coming Out, Why Are People Falling For The Hype?
Amazingly, He Made His Claims Despite Much Evidence Of Their Falsity. A Gallup Poll At The Time Reported That 53% Of Scientists Actively Involved In Global Climate Research Did Not Believe Global Warming Had Occurred; 30% Weren'T Sure; And Only 17% Believed Global Warming Had Begun.

Does State Solar Exist Os Or Here? Anyone Know Much About Them And Their Panels?
I Was Interested In Getting Solar Panels And Saw Their Add. What They Offer Seems Good. A Friend Did A Quick Visit And Was Very Suprised When Phoning Everyone Was A Traveller, Popped In And Found The Same Thing When There As Well. Are They Australian Company Or Not? I Can'T Seem To Find Anything On Them Or Who They Are. I Tried Ringing A Few Times And They Sounded Very Far Away, I Couldn'T Tell If They Were Os Or Not. Sort Of Weird They Seem Not To Exist And Not Hire Many Locals And Well... Just Marketing A Lot As Seem To Be No History. Anyone Had Any Prior Dealings With Them Or The Owner? How Is Their Reputation And Standing With Tax Office? I Have Heard Some Places Now Prefer Travellers For Tax And Not Sure If Its Who I Want To Do Business With. I Know Vegemite Is Not Really Local But Geesh..Solar Should Be I Think. Doesn'T That Mean That Locals Miss Out A Bit ..Is This A New Kind Of Sweat Shop? I Find It Odd That I Get A Different Traveller Every Time And They Can'T Tell Me Much About Themselves Just The Solar Panels. Who Are They Exactly And Does Anyone Know Why They Would Be Bringing In Travellers...That Would Be What A Tourism Role Might Do. Why? My Ethics Sort Of Make It That I Prefer To Deal With Locals And Last I Heard They Fired Someone For Asking For Their Rights. Has Anyone Else Seen This Kind Of Thing? Had Been Toldl Its Might Be A New Type Of Sweat Shop That Hires Western Tourists Instead And Heard Of Yet Another One That Hires, Then Takes Sales And Is Dont Pay Them To The Owner Of The Sales. I Would Like To Know If Anyone Knows Much About Their Solar Panel Scheme And If They Heard Of Them Or Dealt With Them?

I live in the USA, and haven't heard of that company. Your best source of references may the company, itself. Call and ask them for local references, that is, a successful installation that you can visit.

Also, call their competitors. I would expect to hear things like, "Oh yes, they do quality work, BUT [we are cheaper, faster, offer more features...]" On the other hand, if you hear words like "scam," take notice.

Can I Contract To Buy My Neighbor'S Federal Tax Credit From Installing Solar Panels On His Roof?
Anyone Know The Irs Rules With Respect To Purchasing Tax Credits From Another Taxpayer?

I'm not sure why you would want to do this. It's a tax credit, not a deduction, so would not change your tax bracket even if you could/did buy it. Usually, a contract has an advantage for both parties, and I'm not sure what each of you would gain in this case.

If your neighbor is short of cash to install a solar system, you could do an ordinary loan to him (even draw up legal documents). Your neighbor would repay you over time, either in several installments, or one lump sum. Presumably, the neighbor would have extra funds at tax time, because of the tax credit, with which to pay you. The federal credit is not refundable, so if the neighbor's taxes do not exceed the credit, they will have to spread the credit out over several years.

All this said, financial deals gone wrong can make for horrible neighbor situations. You probably shouldn't do it, unless you love them so much that you'd just give them the money, without expectation of being paid back.

Solar Panels How Much Money Do They Save On An Electric Bill?
I Know There Are Variables Such As Sun Light, Seasons Ect. I Just Want To Veiw Other Peoples Experience With Their Own Solar Panels

after the first pay out, [your cost] nothing, your in the hole around $ 3,000 or more
not only do you have to install solar panels , but storage batteries, deep cycle around $90 ea ,
an inverter, $400, or more , transfer switches, wiring, and cost to install all of this
and a LOT of solar panels
one 45 watt panel is around $200,

How Would I Get A 5W Solar Panel To Power Standard Wall Outlet Chargers?
My Electrical Engineering Skills Are Pretty Nonexistent, But I Was Curious How I Would Go About Using A 5 Watt Solar Panel To Terminate In A Standard Wall Outlet And, For Instance, Charge A Cell Phone. I Was Thinking Something Like This Solar Panel: Http://Www.Amazon.Com/Sunforce-50022-Battery-Trickle-Charger/Dp/B0006jo0tc/Ref=Pd_Sim_Auto_3 Ideally This Would Be Without A Battery In Between The Panel And The Device. Could I Just Skip The Wall Outlet And Use A 12V Car Charger Straight From The Panel? Or Use A Car Power Inverter? Like I Said, I Really Have No Idea How Practical This Would Be, But I'M Just Curious About It.

Why not just check the web for solar battery chargers. I am sure there are several that will fit your needs.
