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

#3 Secure versus rising energy expenses

Among the most clear cut benefits of photovoltaic panels is the ability to hedge energy prices. In the past 10 years, domestic electrical energy rates have actually increased by approximately three percent yearly. By investing in a solar energy system now, you can repair your electricity rate and secure against unpredictable boosts in electricity costs. If you're a service or house owner with changing money flow, going solar likewise assists you better forecast and manage your costs.

Numerous research studies have found that houses geared up with solar energy systems have higher residential or commercial property values and offer more quickly than non-solar houses. Appraisers are increasingly 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 homes geared up 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 achieving energy independence in the United States. By increasing our capability to produce electrical energy from the sun, we can likewise insulate our country from rate changes in worldwide energy markets.

#6 Develop jobs and assist your local economy

According to The Solar Structure, the solar market included tasks at a rate almost 12 times faster than the overall U.S. economy in 2015, representing 1.2 percent of all tasks in the country.

Progressively, consumers and communities are recognizing and rewarding businesses that decide to run properly. Businesses are finding that "green" qualifications are an effective chauffeur of consumer purchasing choices, creating goodwill and enhancing business 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.

Many house owners opt to fund their photovoltaic panels with among the "pay-as-you-go" financing alternatives. This suggests that a third-party business-- the solar provider-- owns the planetary system and takes care of setup, upkeep, monitoring and repairs. You merely pay the solar supplier for electrical power-- less than you would've paid the energy company.

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

#10. Solar is a Secure Financial investment

Frequently Asked Questions

How Many Solar Panels Do I Need To Run My Two Bedroom Townhouse Without Electricity From The Grid?
How Many Solar Panels Do I Need To Run My Two Bedroom Townhouse? Are There Different Solar Panels? How Many Solar Panes To Produced 1 Kw Of Electricity?

The issue is more complicated than you might imagine. You can learn how many kilowatt hours you use from your electric bill. This will be an average, but if you want to be off the grid, you will need a system large enough to deliver the maximum amount you use. This will not be practical, unless you have batteries on the system.

My 6 kW system delivers about 20 kWh per day, in an area where the insolation value (suns energy) is about 5. You can find your area's insolation value on the Internet, under SOLAR INSOLATION.

My installation is situated for maximum utility, in that my ridge runs east and west, and the panels are on the south slope.

Using this information and your utility bill, you should be able to approximate the size system you need.

If your utility has net metering, you may be better off not having batteries, but spend the money on the largest system you can afford. This way you will maximize the amount of savings. Batteries cost money, have to be maintained, must be replaced every few years, and take away from the efficiency of the system.

There are many kinds of solar panels. Look them up on the Internet to learn their characteristics. Keep in mind that the system output will be only about 70 to 75 percent of the rated output. This is due to inefficiencies in system components.

Projects Using Solar Panels?
Hi Everyone.. I Wanna Do My Major Project On Solar Panels...So Anyone Kindly Tell Me The Projects Based On Solar Panels..

I have done this in my project too and a solar panel, two wires, a circuit/project board, an LED light/a small fan,a switch and a solderer. Just solder the wires to the positive and negative parts of the panel, put the wires connected to the panel to the board put the LED's on the other side and the switch together with it shine light on the panel and the light/fan will work.(If it dosen't work, please DO NOT consult ME.)

Can A Harbor Freight Solar Panel Resist Hail?
I Just Bought A Harbor Freight Solar Panel Kit And I Am Concerned About Damage It Might Receive From Weather Conditions. It Appears To Have Some Sort Of Plastic Over The Solar Cells.

I have one up and it hasn't destructed yet. It does what they say. I have it connected to 2 5 volt golf cart gel cells in series. You would need about 20 of them to power most things directly.

I Want To Live On Solar Power..?
I Want Solar Panels On My House But There Are Not Even Worth It Cause It Is So Expensive...

Everything is worth it to save energy and to save the environment. Over a course of 20 or so years, it will be worth it (money wise and environment wise). =D

What To Do To Get 110 Charge Out Of 6,75W-17V Solar Panels?
What Must I Do To Charge 8 4D 12V Batteries With 6, 75W Solar Panels,17V Wired In Series,So They Will Stay Charged For More Than A Month.Can I Put A Stepup Transformer After The Cpu,Pcu With A Voltage Regulator Of Some Kind So When The Sun Shines Bright It Will Give A 110?

A 4d battery is about 150 AH. 8 of them, total 1200 AH. Ideally, you would want to charge these at 5%, of 60A. You could probably get away with 3%, which is 36A.

Those 75W panels, lets say have max power at 15V (a round number), and 5A. With 6 of them, that's still a little light for your battery bank. Can you go with just 4 batteries? Or more/bigger panels? From an array that size, you would get 1, maybe 2 kWh a day. You would need to plan your consumption accordingly.

The device you need is called a charge controller, and you can get it from various solar dealers. Given the size of your battery bank, it's probably best to wire it as 12 volts. To get 110 AC out of it, you need to buy and connect an inverter.

If the batteries are already charged, and all you want to do is maintain them (for example, golf cart batteries in storage), then disregard most of what I said above. You can just get a charge controller. But you won't be able to charge the batteries back up once you drain them.
