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 property owner to utilize the sun to power everyday life: running your ac system, cleaning clothes, seeing TELEVISION, cooking dinner. All while lowering your carbon footprint, and without burning fossil fuels or putting a strain on the electrical grid. And while the ecological advantages of solar power are substantial, lots of home owners find that the benefit, unique functions, and cost savings of owning a solar power system are a lot more enticing.

Top 10 Advantages of Solar Energy

#1 Dramatically minimize or perhaps remove your electric costs

Whether you're a house owner, service, or nonprofit, electrical power expenses can comprise a big part of your month-to-month expenditures. With a photovoltaic panel system, you'll create totally free power for your system's whole 25+ year lifecycle. Even if you do not produce 100 percent of the energy you take in, solar will minimize your utility expenses and you'll still save a great deal of loan.

#2 Make an excellent return on your financial investment

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

#3 Safeguard versus increasing energy costs

Among the most clear cut advantages of photovoltaic panels is the ability to hedge utility costs. In the past ten years, domestic electrical energy prices have gone up by an average of three percent yearly. By investing in a solar energy system now, you can repair your electrical power rate and secure against unforeseeable boosts in electrical energy expenses. If you're a company or homeowner with ever-changing cash circulation, going solar also assists you much better projection and manage your expenditures.

#4 Boost your home or business worth

Numerous research studies have found that homes geared up with solar energy systems have greater residential or commercial property worths and sell more rapidly than non-solar homes. Appraisers are progressively taking solar installations into factor to consider as they value houses at the time of a sale, and as homebuyers end up being more educated about solar, need for properties equipped with photovoltaic panel systems will continue to grow.

#5 Boost U.S. energy independence

The sun is a near-infinite source of energy and a key component of attaining energy self-reliance in the United States. By increasing our capacity to create electrical energy from the sun, we can likewise insulate our nation from rate fluctuations in global energy markets.

#6 Develop jobs and help your regional economy

According to The Solar Structure, the solar market added jobs at a rate almost 12 times faster than the general U.S. economy in 2015, representing 1.2 percent of all tasks in the country. This growth is expected to continue. Since solar-related tasks have the tendency to be higher paying and can not be contracted out, they are a significant contributor to the U.S. economy.

#7 Safeguard the environment

Solar is a great way to reduce your carbon footprint. Structures are accountable for 38 percent of all carbon emissions in the U.S., and going solar can substantially decrease that number. A typical residential solar panel system will remove 3 to 4 heaps of carbon emissions each year-- the equivalent of planting over 100 trees each year.

#8 Show your dedication to sustainability

Sustainability and corporate social responsibility are necessary elements of an organization's culture and worths. They likewise produce bottom line results. Significantly, consumers and neighborhoods are acknowledging and rewarding businesses that pick to operate responsibly. Companies are finding that "green" qualifications are a powerful chauffeur of consumer getting choices, producing goodwill and enhancing company results.

#9 Start Conserving from Day 1

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

Lots of homeowners decide to fund their solar panels with among the "pay-as-you-go" financing options. This indicates that a third-party business-- the solar service provider-- owns the planetary system and looks after installation, upkeep, tracking and repair works. You merely pay the solar service provider for electrical energy-- less than you would've paid the utility business.

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

#10. Solar is a Secure Financial investment

The energy companies are infamous for their changing and unreliable electricity rates. There is clearly an upward pattern.

With photovoltaic panels and easy math, we can compute how much electrical energy will be created, and most significantly, at what price, for at least the next 20 years (repaired energy expenses).

Frequently Asked Questions

How To Produce Steam And Electricity From Solar Energy?
What Would Be The Best Way (Mirror Configuration, Pv Types..Etc) To Produce 240 Ton/Hour Of Steam ( 6 Barg) And In The Same Time 20 Mw Of Electricity?

A lot of single or double mirror assemblies (sun tracking?) could eventually do it. The problem is amount and how you use it. Solar laser? I don't believe you could get that electricity without a huge amount of solar electric conversion units so that would probably best be done with steam power generator units. The sun is powerful enough, but the tech to convert it is still in it's adolescence.

How Do You Transport Solar Power Tower Energy To A Building That Is 4 Kms Away?
And Is An Area Of 1 Km^2 For A Solar Power Tower Enough To Produce Energy For Five Houses? Can You Make An Approximation Of How Much It Could Supply?

If you want the heat energy, consider tracking mirrors at the site and solar collectors on the houses. If you want electric energy, that area is enough to support a traditional steam turbine, much more cost-effective than photovoltaic. That area is about 15 times the area that Solar One used to generate 10 megawatts in the Mohave Desert, so it could supply a theoretical maximum of 150 megawatts during peak sunshine. That's probably enough to match the demand of about 25,000 homes. Best bet would be to feed it to the electric power grid.

Are There Are Any Solar Powered Digital Cameras That Are Out Or Being Developed?
Or Maybe Rechargers That Could Recharge The Batteries With Solar Energy. The Reason I Ask Is Because I Want To Travel Around The World Even To Some Remote Areas Where They Might Not Have Electricity So It Would Be Nice To Have A Camera That I Could Recharge Without Electricity.

If your camera runs on AA, AAA, or larger batteries, then check out the following links to learn more about solar rechargers.

How Many Will Vow To Only Buy A 100% Electric Car? ?
If People Started Vowing Not To Buy Another Car Until They Can Buy An Affordable 100% Electric Car Would You Make The Same Commitment? Imagine, Filling Your Car Up For Less Then $5.00 Of Electricity At Home (Or Completely Free With Solar Panels On Your Home). People Are Already Doing It! Never Going To The Gas Station Again. And No Longer Being Controlled By The Oil Companies.

heeeeeeeeeeeeelllllllllllllllllllllllno.

one...if you're green enough to buy a car that runs solely on electricity, and live close enough to your job to make a successful roundtrip commute with the limited range of an all electric car, just frickin take your bike! good for you and the environment and i wont have to deal with you clogging up the highway barely getting up to the speed limit.

two...the idea of electric cars is the biggest joke on environmentalists everywhere. kudos if you can charge your car with your own solar cell, but for everyone else, guess where all that energy comes from? FOSSILE FUELS! and with everyone driving an all-electric car, electric companies could wipe their asses with the profits

Can You Store Solar Energy?
1.Can You Use It To Heat Water? 2.Can You Use It To Charge A Battery? 3.Can You Use It To Heat Wood? Need Info. Before The 8Th Of April! Thank You!

1) yes.....solar energy has been used for ages to heat water. There are many ways to do this. I have even used Plastic pipe painted black with a small pump pumping water through the pipe to heat a small pool.
We are even heating water with sloar reflectors to the point that it creates steam used for power generation.

2) yes....solar voltaic battery chargers are all over the place now.

There are much larger systems that will power your home all day while charging batteries that you switch over to after the sun goes down.
