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 resident to use the sun to power daily life: running your air conditioning system, washing clothes, watching TELEVISION, cooking supper. All while reducing your carbon footprint, and without burning fossil fuels or putting a strain on the electrical grid. And while the ecological benefits of solar power are substantial, many home owners discover that the benefit, distinct functions, and expense savings of owning a solar power system are a lot more alluring.

Top 10 Advantages of Solar Energy

#1 Drastically decrease or perhaps remove your electrical costs

Whether you're a house owner, business, or nonprofit, electricity costs can comprise a big portion of your regular monthly costs.

Even if you do not produce One Hundred Percent of the energy you take in, solar will lower your energy bills and you'll still conserve a lot of cash.

#2 Earn an excellent return on your investment

Photovoltaic panels aren't a cost-- they're one of the very best ways to invest, with returns measuring up to those of more traditional investments like stocks and bonds. Thanks to significant electrical energy expense savings, the average American house owner settles their photovoltaic panel system in 7 to eight years and sees an ROI of 20 percent or more.

#3 Secure against rising energy expenses

Among the most clear cut advantages of solar panels is the ability to hedge utility rates. In the past 10 years, residential electricity costs have actually gone up by an average of three percent annually. By purchasing a solar energy system now, you can repair your electrical power rate and secure versus unpredictable boosts in electrical energy costs. If you're a business or homeowner with fluctuating cash flow, going solar likewise assists you better forecast and handle your expenditures.

#4 Boost your house value

Numerous studies have actually found that homes equipped with solar energy systems have greater residential or commercial property worths and offer more quickly than non-solar homes. Appraisers are increasingly taking solar installations into consideration as they value houses at the time of a sale, and as property buyers become more informed about solar, need for residential or commercial properties equipped with solar panel systems will continue to grow.

#5 Boost U.S. energy independence

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 capability to create electrical power from the sun, we can likewise insulate our country from price fluctuations in international energy markets.

#6 Develop jobs and assist your regional economy

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

#7 Secure the environment

Solar is a great 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 photovoltaic panel system will get rid of three to four lots of carbon emissions each year-- the equivalent of planting over 100 trees annually.

#8 Show your commitment to sustainability

Sustainability and corporate social responsibility are very important components of a company's culture and worths. They likewise produce bottom line results. Significantly, customers and communities are acknowledging and rewarding businesses that choose to operate responsibly. Businesses are discovering that "green" qualifications are a powerful driver of consumer getting decisions, developing goodwill and improving service results.

#9 Start Saving from Day 1

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

Numerous house owners opt to finance their photovoltaic panels with one of the "pay-as-you-go" financing options. This suggests that a third-party business-- the solar service provider-- owns the solar system and looks after installation, maintenance, tracking and repairs. You merely pay the solar provider for electrical power-- 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 Financial investment

The energy business are infamous for their fluctuating and undependable electricity rates. There is plainly an upward pattern.

With photovoltaic panels and simple math, we can compute just how much electricity will be produced, and most importantly, at what price, for at least the next Twenty Years (repaired energy costs).

Frequently Asked Questions

Solar Energy≫ If We Went Back To Solar Energy Would That Allow Us To Have A Reconection With Spirts.?
From What I Think, Artificial Energy As In The Energy That Comes From Fossil Fuels And So On Broke Our Connection With The Spirt World, Because It Is Falsified And Not Coming From The Infinite Source Of Energy That Comes From The Sun The Universe And Outer Space.

I don't think it would cause us to go back to the old gods, no. I do think that if everyone had their own solar energy devices that we would become more aware of our enviorment and possibly more concerned with preserving it.

I live in a remote area where I provide all my own utilities with the exception of electricity. Being self reliant tends to make a person more aware of their environment. For example I attempt to manage my land to produce adequate wood to assist me in heating my house. If I just turned on a thermostat like most people do, I would never think about where that heat was coming from.

What Is Solar Energy???
Whats Is Solar Energy? Is Solar Energy A Renewable Source? Without The Sun Will We Be Able To Survive Why Or Why Not? How Can We Use Solar Energy? How Can We Use Solar Energy On A Cloudy Day Or Night? How Can We Save Solar Energy?

The sun has produced energy for billions of years. Solar energy is the solar radiation that reaches the earth.

Solar energy can be converted directly or indirectly into other forms of energy, such as heat and electricity. The major drawbacks (problems, or issues to overcome) of solar energy are: (1) the intermittent and variable manner in which it arrives at the earth's surface and, (2) the large area required to collect it at a useful rate.

Solar energy is used for heating water for domestic use, space heating of buildings, drying agricultural products, and generating electrical energy.

In the 1830s, the British astronomer John Herschel used a solar collector box to cook food during an expedition to Africa. Now, people are trying to use the sun's energy for lots of things.

Electric utilities are trying photovoltaics, a process by which solar energy is converted directly to electricity. Electricity can be produced directly from solar energy using photovoltaic devices or indirectly from steam generators using solar thermal collectors to heat a working fluid.

Out of the 14 known solar electric generating units operating in the US at the end of 2004, 10 of these are in California, and 4 in Arizona. No statistics are being collected on solar plants that produce less than 1 megawatt of electricity, so there may be smaller solar plants in a number of other states.

What Types Of Energy (E.G Tidal, Solar, Wind) Dont Use The Sun, I Need Three, I'M Told That There Only Is Three???? Also Any Info About Nuclear Energy(How It Is Made) Would Be Useful Aswell :) :) :) :) Thanks

all renewable energy is caused from the sun. Without sun there would be no solar, and there would be no wind or tidal as the sun causes all life on earth so without it there would be no anything.
Only nonrenewable energy sources are not run by sun, such as burning coal or oil.
I should probably say now that renewable energy is energy that will always be around (solar, wind ect) or that can replenish itself before it is all used, like timber.
Non renewable energy is energy that will eventually run out. This is mainly fossil fuels. Coal and oil take millions of years to be created from fossilized products like plant and animal material. This is then buried underground from erosion or other natural ways. It is pressurized and turns to coal, or turns to oil. Because of the millions of years underground, there is high carbon levels in the energy sources, so when they are burnt cause lots of carbon to be released and heat to be emitted, causing the power plants to run. As your question doesn't ask about that I wont explain it because you probably don't want to know, and I want to stay on topic.
I hope I helped to explain a little and I hope you can see the difference in the energy sources and which would rely on the sun. Once knowing this basic information it is easy to tell which energy sources need the sun.

How To Convert Solar Energy To Electrical Energy ?

There are two ways to convert solar radiation to electricity - directly, with a solid state device that absorbs photons and releases electrons, and indirectly, by absorbing the solar energy in some other way and using the heat to do the work of producing electricity "conventionally".)

Solar energy is delivered mostly as visible light, so a medium that can absorb photons at most visible wavelengths would be best. This does not yet exist: neither plants nor engineers have developed such a medium. In addition, direct conversion is possible only during the period that the site is in daylight, so a mechanism for storing energy to operate "in the dark" is required for the sun to provide "base load" power.

Solar thermal systems can store energy, but no commercial system has been demonstrated that can collect solar energy by day, continue to use it overnight, and have enough left at daybreak to carry on until solar input picks up again. Otherwise, a solar turbine would work like any steam turbine - the stored heat is used to make steam, the steam turns the generator, there is your electricity. The trick is collecting and storing enough heat to make the steam pressure required to generate electricity. Research on this is underway.

Which Type Of Energy Is Better?
Which Energy Source Is Better, Wind Energy Or Solar Energy, And Why?

wind or sun, they both produce similar
but i think that solar is cleaner energy
