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 use the sun to power daily life: running your air conditioning system, washing clothing, enjoying TV, cooking supper. All while lowering your carbon footprint, and without burning nonrenewable fuel sources or putting a strain on the electrical grid. And while the environmental advantages of solar power are substantial, lots of residents find that the convenience, special features, and expense savings of owning a solar power system are much more alluring.

Leading Advantages of Solar Energy

#1 Significantly decrease or perhaps remove your electric costs

Whether you're a house owner, organization, or not-for-profit, electrical energy costs can comprise a big portion 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 One Hundred Percent of the energy you consume, solar will lower your utility bills and you'll still save a lot of loan.

#2 Make a terrific return on your financial investment

Solar panels aren't a cost-- they're one of the very best ways to invest, with returns measuring up to those of more standard financial investments like stocks and bonds. Thanks to significant electrical energy bill cost savings, the typical American property owner settles their solar panel system in seven to 8 years and sees an ROI of 20 percent or more.

#3 Secure versus increasing energy expenses

Among the most clear cut advantages of photovoltaic panels is the ability to hedge energy costs. In the previous ten years, domestic electricity costs have actually gone up by approximately 3 percent each year. By buying a solar energy system now, you can fix your electricity rate and safeguard versus unpredictable increases in electricity expenses. If you're a company or house owner with rising and falling cash flow, going solar also assists you much better forecast and manage your expenditures.

#4 Increase your house worth

Numerous studies have discovered that houses equipped with solar energy systems have higher residential or commercial property worths and sell faster than non-solar homes. Appraisers are increasingly taking solar setups into factor to consider as they value houses at the time of a sale, and as homebuyers become more educated about solar, need for properties equipped 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 an essential part of accomplishing energy self-reliance in the United States. By increasing our capacity to generate electrical energy from the sun, we can also insulate our country from price changes in global energy markets.

#6 Create jobs and assist your regional economy

According to The Solar Structure, the solar market added 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 development is expected to continue. Since solar-related jobs tend to be greater paying and can not be outsourced, they are a significant contributor to the United States economy.

#7 Safeguard the environment

Solar is an excellent method to decrease your carbon footprint. Structures are responsible for 38 percent of all carbon emissions in the U.S., and going solar can significantly decrease that number. A normal property solar panel system will remove 3 to 4 lots of carbon emissions each year-- the equivalent of planting over 100 trees annually.

#8 Show your commitment to sustainability

Sustainability and business social duty are essential elements of a company's culture and values. They also produce bottom line outcomes. Increasingly, consumers and neighborhoods are acknowledging and rewarding companies that decide to operate responsibly. Businesses are discovering that "green" qualifications are a powerful motorist of customer buying choices, producing goodwill and enhancing service 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 loan down.

Numerous homeowners decide to finance their photovoltaic panels with among the "pay-as-you-go" financing options. This indicates that a third-party company-- the solar supplier-- owns the solar system and looks after setup, maintenance, monitoring and repair works. You just pay the solar provider for electrical power-- 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 companies are notorious for their fluctuating and unreliable electrical power prices. There is plainly an upward trend.

With photovoltaic panels and simple math, we can calculate just how much electricity will be produced, and most notably, at what rate, for at least the next 20 years (fixed energy expenses).

Hope that helps.

What Is Photosynthetic Efficiency?
Can Someone Please Explain To Me What The Basic Definition Of Photosynthetic Efficiency? I Am Trying To Calculate How Much Solar Energy The Foods I Eat Take In When They Grow And I Am Told This Depends On Their Photosynthetic Efficiency.

Well, one way of looking at it is to compare how much energy is in the food compared to how much solar energy was available.

How Much Money Was Made From Renewable Energy 2011?
I'M Trying To See How Much Money Was Made From Renewable Energy Sources Such As Solar And Wind.

Thats a good question. perhaps not as much was made as was spent developing those sources. Renewable energy has been a prevailing issue due to our energy dependence and the high cost of oil. While the high cost of oil makes huge amounts of money for oil companies and OPEC, we will undoubtedly one day have to resort to the use of alternative and renewable energy to power our vehicles along with other modes of transportation as well as heat our homes and generate electricity for households and businesses. my speculation is that we will continue to use light sweet crude until the wells in the middle east run dry and then develop corn ethanol and become the primary exporter of fuel in the world bwahahahaha
