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

Thanks to substantial electrical power costs savings, the average American property owner pays off their photovoltaic panel system in seven to 8 years and sees an ROI of 20 percent or more.

#3 Secure versus rising energy expenses

Among the most clear cut advantages of solar panels is the capability to hedge utility prices. In the past 10 years, residential electrical energy costs have increased by an average of 3 percent annually. By investing in a solar energy system now, you can fix your electrical energy rate and safeguard against unpredictable boosts in electrical energy costs. If you're a business or homeowner with changing capital, going solar likewise assists you better projection and manage your expenditures.

#4 Boost your house value

Numerous studies have actually discovered that houses geared up with solar energy systems have greater property worths and offer more rapidly than non-solar houses. Appraisers are significantly 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 properties geared up 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 attaining energy self-reliance in the United States. By increasing our capacity to create electricity from the sun, we can likewise insulate our country from price fluctuations in international energy markets.

#6 Create jobs and assist your local economy

According to The Solar Foundation, the solar market added jobs at a rate almost 12 times faster than the total U.S. economy in 2015, representing 1.2 percent of all tasks in the nation. This development is anticipated to continue. Because solar-related tasks have the tendency to be greater paying and can not be outsourced, they are a substantial contributor to the United States economy.

#7 Secure the environment

Solar is a great method to reduce your carbon footprint. Buildings are responsible for 38 percent of all carbon emissions in the United States, and going solar can significantly decrease that number. A normal property solar panel system will eliminate 3 to four lots of carbon emissions each year-- the equivalent of planting over 100 trees annually.

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

Numerous property owners decide to fund their photovoltaic panels with one of the "pay-as-you-go" funding alternatives. This indicates that a third-party business-- the solar supplier-- owns the planetary system and looks after setup, upkeep, tracking and repair works. You merely pay the solar supplier for electrical power-- less than you would've paid the utility business.

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

The utility business are well-known for their varying and undependable electrical energy prices. There is plainly an upward pattern.

With solar panels and simple mathematics, we can compute what does it cost? electrical power will be produced, and most notably, at what price, for a minimum of the next 20 years (fixed energy expenses).

Why Aren'T New Homes Built With Solar Panels?

Because they're ugly, expensive, and need huge, toxic batteries. In areas with a lot of snow, they could be destroyed during the winter.

How Much Does It Cost To Get Solar Panels Installed In Ut?
There Is A Problem In Utah That You Can Get Reimbursed For Some Of The Cost Of Getting Solar Panels Installed. I Think My House (Facing South) Is Perfect For It. But They Only Cover Much Of The Cost.

Check for Rocky Mountain Power incentives. They have a lottery now so you have to apply with your proposal and then only a limited number are chosen. Next applications are accepted 15 Jan 2014.
The system that the Clark Planetarium has on the roof is grid-tied 25 kW. It cost $100,000 with incentives and tax allowances. It saves us about $4,000 per year, so when it is about worn out (it has a 25 year warranty), it will have paid for itself.

You can probably get a 3 kW system for your home for around $15,000. The RMP incentive would be around $3,000 if you can win the lottery, and Utah gives a maximum $2,000 tax credit. That system would save you about $500 per year on your electricity, making your pay-back period about 20 years. Maybe there are federal tax credits. The tax credits and utility incentive are piracy in my opinion, but making my own electricity is enterprising and productive, and I want to do it myself as soon as I get $10,000 saved.

Info On Solar Panels And Heated Water Required?
I Thought That Solar Panels Heated Water That Could Be Put Into The Central Heating System But I Have Been Told That Only The Very, Very Expensive Ones (£20,000) Do This. It Seems That The Others Heat The Non-Central Heating Water Supply Only. Can Anyone Expand On This? My Objective Was To Reduce All My Bills By Using Solar Energy To Heat All Water Used In My Home And Just 'Top' This Up As Required.

Bullsh*t...www.solarheating.com............ can make your own and use the central water heaters and radiators.....old black garden hoses in a black box with glass will give u 160 f. hot water even on a bad day....please check the internet and get FREE HOT WATER.......FORGET the 20,000 quid dude...

Ac Watts Vs Dc Watts - Solar Power Question?
Is The Formula For Calculating Watts For Dc The Same As For Ac (Volts X Amps = Watts)? I'M Trying To Figure Out The Details Of A Solar System. There Is A Company Selling Controllers That Are Rated For Either 10 Amps, 20 Amps Or 30 Amps 12/24 Volt Dc. At 30 Amps 12 Volt Dc You Would Only Be Getting 360 Watts Right?

Yes! you only will be getting 360 watts.
You didn't explain if the 360 watts was input from the PV panel or if that was load.
Either way 360 watts though, so your correct.
Voltage times amperage = wattage =====> AC or DC, it doesn't matter.
Contact me at [email protected] if you need more help, I built an emergency solar power system for my home before.
