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

Thanks to considerable electrical energy expense savings, the average American homeowner pays off their solar panel system in 7 to 8 years and sees an ROI of 20 percent or more.

#3 Secure versus increasing energy expenses

Among the most clear cut benefits of photovoltaic panels is the ability to hedge energy costs. In the previous 10 years, property electrical energy prices have actually increased by approximately 3 percent yearly. By investing in a solar energy system now, you can fix your electricity rate and secure against unpredictable increases in electrical power expenses. If you're a service or house owner with fluctuating cash flow, going solar also assists you better forecast and handle your costs.

Appraisers are progressively taking solar setups into factor to consider as they value houses at the time of a sale, and as homebuyers end up being more informed about solar, demand for properties equipped with solar panel systems will continue to grow.

#5 Increase U.S. energy independence

The sun is a near-infinite source of energy and an essential part of attaining energy independence in the United States. By increasing our capacity to create electricity from the sun, we can likewise insulate our country from price changes in global energy markets.

Lots of house owners pick to finance their solar panels with one of the "pay-as-you-go" financing options. This indicates that a third-party company-- the solar company-- owns the solar system and takes care of installation, upkeep, monitoring and repairs. You merely pay the solar provider for electrical power-- less than you would've paid the utility business.

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

Frequently Asked Questions

Information About Solar Energy?
Hey Guys, I Really Need Help Getting Information About Solar Energy. Can You Guys Tell Me How It Works And Why Is It Used For?

The internet can be a marvelous resource. Give it a whirl.

At the _very least_ type the words
solar energy
into Wikipedia

Entering that term into <<any>> internet search engine will give you tons of information.

You question is _so_ general, that someone could type in 10 pages worth of an answer - all of which would end up not being anything you wanted.

You are better off doing this investigation and knowledge gathering yourself.

Why Is Solar Energy Better Than Fossil Fuel?

There are multiple reasons...
1) Less impact. Solar energy comes from (here's the shocker...jk) the Sun! You see our sun is a renewable resource, therefore it won't run out. Or at least not in the next three billion years :) Fossil fuels, however, are in a limited supply and take millions of years of heat and pressure to form. You tell me, which one will run out first?
2) CO2 Emmisions. CO2, or carbon dioxide, is released into the atmoshpherre when fossil fuels are burned. So are other green house gases (methane, nitrogen, etc.) that trap in heat and sunlight, forming global warming. Now, it's totally normal to have CO2 in the air, but humans have put in way to much. This make the whole delicate balance of nature totally off. This takes credit for unusual weather, higher ocean levels, mass extinction, melting ice caps/glaciers, and more.

What Type Of Energy In Nevada?
What Type Of Energy (If Nevada Were To Build A New Plant) Would Be Best Suited For Nevada, And Why? The Choice Is Between Solar Power And Geothermal.

Solar will be best due to all the sunshine the state gets
There is some geothermal potential, (as there are some hot sprngs in the state) but not much. I am unaware of any active volcanoes there

Why Is Oil Drilling So Bad For The Environment?
I Know Nothing About Oil Drilling, But With Modern Technology, Why Does This Have To Equate To Environmental Rape? Can't They Be Careful? Are There Spills? Do You Have To Level Mountains To Begin Drilling? I Thought We Already Brought All Kinds Of Oil Here Through The Alaskan Pipeline, Is This Something New? I'm Non Partisan, Just Trying To Figure Out How Drilling Equals Disaster.

That is a good question. There is no quick answer. I will not bore you with a three page essay, or a three year study of "off shore oil spills". A major problem is oil corporations that exist for bottom line this quarter profits don't reinvest in routine maitenence. West Texas has frequent refinery fires costing lives, and the refineries process crude oil that was drilled. I am sure there are many oil spill related problems we don't hear about because Britney Kfed took the spotlight in the Giganitcorp dog and pony show that is media.

For me the problem is nations that are hostile to western democracy and things like a woman's rights to drive or not have to wear a head to toe bed sheet in public have the most oil reserves on the planet and the solution is alternative fuels. I used to be more liberal about the middle east but though I think there are many nice people trying to be good who profess Islam as a faith of "peace", among them are too many who would force it down our throats and on examination the actual holy books of this faith that rules Oil Rich countries are clearly hostile to all other faiths and systems of law.

Until MIT has found a way to harness solar energy for everyday use, and that day is coming, we must use less oil. Use of fossil fuels increases carbon emissions and that leads to fun things like global warming, increased storms and climate change. If Americans reduce carbon emissions by 2% a year we will reduce them by 80% in the year 2050. Change in our lifetime.

How? Drive less, drive the speed limit, don't tailgate as rapid braking and accelerating eats gas, check tirepressure and use cruise control. I can get 34mpg in my 1990 Cadilac on the Highway and I bike in town or walk if it's less than 5 blocks.

Plastics are petroleum based too, how many water bottles do we throw away because there is not a convienient recycling program nearby? My solution is a 10cent deposit on all individual size beverage containers. But I said no three page answer, so adieu.

In order to figure out how much "load" your house is going to need, you'll need to add up all the projected electrical use that your future home will consume. You'll need to add up things like the fridge, washer, dryer, dishwasher, water heater (could be solar), TV, computer(s), all other misc electronic stuff will really suck up the power. Don't forget about the lights-think LED or compact flourescent. Also-think about adding more insulation than that which is required by your local building codes. A high-effeciency HVAC system will also help curb the electrical usage.
