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 house owners to use the sun to power everyday life: running your ac system, washing clothing, enjoying TELEVISION, cooking supper. All while reducing your carbon footprint, and without burning fossil fuels or putting a stress on the electrical grid. And while the environmental advantages of solar power are substantial, numerous homeowners find that the benefit, distinct functions, and cost savings of owning a solar power system are even more attractive.

Leading Benefits of Solar Energy

#1 Considerably reduce and even eliminate your electrical expenses

Whether you're a property owner, organization, or nonprofit, electrical power costs can make up a large part of your regular monthly costs. With a solar panel system, you'll produce complimentary power for your system's entire 25+ year lifecycle. Even if you do not produce One Hundred Percent of the energy you take in, solar will minimize your energy bills and you'll still save a great deal of loan.

#2 Make a fantastic return on your financial investment

Photovoltaic panels aren't an expense-- they are among the very best methods to invest, with returns matching those of more standard financial investments like stocks and bonds. Thanks to considerable electrical energy expense savings, the typical American house owner pays off their photovoltaic panel system in 7 to 8 years and sees an ROI of 20 percent or more.

#3 Protect against rising energy expenses

One of the most clear cut benefits of photovoltaic panels is the capability to hedge utility costs. In the previous 10 years, domestic electricity rates have gone up by an average of three percent yearly. By purchasing a solar energy system now, you can fix your electricity rate and protect versus unpredictable boosts in electricity expenses. If you're an organisation or property owner with changing cash flow, going solar also assists you better projection and manage your expenses.

#4 Boost your home or business value

Several research studies have discovered that homes equipped with solar energy systems have greater home worths and sell quicker than non-solar homes. Appraisers are significantly taking solar installations 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 solar panel systems will continue to grow.

#5 Boost U.S. energy self-reliance

The sun is a near-infinite source of energy and a key part of accomplishing energy independence in the United States. By increasing our capability to produce electrical power from the sun, we can likewise insulate our nation from rate fluctuations in international energy markets.

#6 Develop jobs and assist your local economy

According to The Solar Structure, the solar industry added 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. This development is anticipated to continue. Since solar-related tasks tend to be greater paying and can not be contracted out, they are a significant contributor to the U.S. economy.

#7 Secure the environment

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

#8 Demonstrate your commitment to sustainability

Sustainability and business social obligation are necessary parts 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. Businesses are finding that "green" credentials are a powerful motorist of consumer acquiring decisions, developing goodwill and improving company results.

#9 Start Saving from Day 1

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

Lots of homeowners decide to finance their photovoltaic panels with among the "pay-as-you-go" funding options. This indicates that a third-party business-- the solar company-- owns the planetary system and looks after installation, maintenance, tracking and repair works. You simply pay the solar supplier for electrical energy-- less than you would've paid the utility 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

The utility companies are notorious for their changing and unreliable electrical energy prices. There is clearly an upward trend.

With photovoltaic panels and simple mathematics, we can calculate just how much electrical power will be produced, and most significantly, at exactly what price, for a minimum of the next 20 years (repaired energy costs).

Frequently Asked Questions

What Kind Of Solar Power Panel Setup Do I Need For This Horse Bucket?
I've Been Figuring Ways To Keep Water Thawed Out For Some Horses This Winter, And This Heated Horse Bucket Seems To Be The Easiest Thing. What Kind Of Set Up (Solar Panel) Would I Need To Feed This 260 Watt Heated Bucket? Http://Www.Kvvet.Com/Kvvet/Productr.Asp?Pf%5Fid=88772&Gift=False&Hslb=False&Mscssid=0F75b25c6ad0e436780637f7352a1ba8

figuring at 4 dollars a watt for solar power, that is very expensive not to mention that the solar panel does not work during darkness and when the sunlight is greatly shaded.

you would need a battery with the ability to supply 260 watts per hour for darkness and that will require a battery

i suggest you place it near a power outlet, if this it not possible, conact the alternate energy store and talk to one of the sales staff and if you go with a panel, look for a dent and scratch, they cost less but still work

What Does My Solar Panel To Laptop Battery Setup Need To Work Properly?
I Have A Solar Panel With A Max Output Of 15.4V At 900Ma (14 Watts) And A Dc To Dc Converter For My Laptop With An Input Rating Of 11-15V And An Output Of 20V And 90 Watts. I Was Assured That The Discrepancy Between 15 And 15.4 Volts Would Not Affect The Converter'S Ability, But It Does Not Appear To Be Charging The Laptop. What Is The Problem?

Are you attempting to power the laptop AND charge the battery? Are you attempting to charge the battery through the laptop, but with the laptop off? Are you attempting to charge the battery directly?

Chances are, you can trickle charge the battery directly from the solar panel, since the battery itself may only be a 15 volt battery... of course, without any information on the laptop or battery, it is hard to say for sure.

Have you put the output of the solar cell on a multimeter? Have you put the output of the solar cell connected to the DC-to-Dc converter on a multimeter to see how many volts it is putting out?

There are multiple reasons why this setup might be failing, and you need to check every one.

Can You See Small Things On Top Of Roofs Like Small Wires, Small Notebook, Small Ball Etc On Google Earth. Sorry To Bother You!?

Sometimes you can sometimes you can't.
You have to bear in mind that Google Earth is made up of pictures stitched together, some pictures are more clear than others.
On some houses, the picture is so clear you can count the number of tiles used on the roof, while a few meters away the picture is so blurred you can barely make out a solar panel.

Why Does The Whole World Fight Against Energy That Is Free, Like Solar And Wind?
Seems Like Everyone Would Be In Favor Of Such Energy, But Alas, It Cant Be Regulated Nor Taxed. Neither Can These Resources Be Owned By A Man. Oops. I Answered My Own Question. Lets Wake Up People. Were Being Screwed. To The Point Where Nobody Even Asks The Right Questions, Let Alone Have Good Answers.

Solar and wind energy are not free.

To prove this go purchase the hardware needed to convert it into power you can use in your home.

I've been given quotes of $50,000 to $60,000 to outfit my home with enough solar panels to produce almost all of the energy I use each year (it won't cover the energy needs of my air conditioner in the summer... it was sized by a professional HVAC firm and can't be made smaller or it will run without stopping thus consuming excess energy and wearing it out very quickly).

My home is heated with 400 square feet of hot water solar collectors piped through tubes in my floors. My walls are insulated to R30 and ceiling/attic is R65 (my home is far beyond the average energy waster most people live in).

Also note that the local tax collector lists my collectors as adding value to my home and my taxes are higher than my neighbors due to this so YES, you can tax solar energy.

Don't forget that solar panels have a life of about 20-25 years before their electrical production suffers major degradation.

So every home owner needs to pony up the $50,000 to get their "free" 25 year supply of energy.

Is Global Warming A Real Threat To Our Earth?
Is It Gunna Ruin Anything Or Any Place In Particular, Or Is A Threat To The Whole Earth?.... Maybe Just Some Of It? Please Explain

Global warming is the increase in the average temperature of the Earth's near-surface air and oceans since the mid-twentieth century and its projected continuation. Global surface temperature increased 0.74 ± 0.18 °C (1.33 ± 0.32 °F) during the last century.The Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) concludes that anthropogenic greenhouse gases are responsible for most of the observed temperature increase since the middle of the twentieth century, and that natural phenomena such as solar variation and volcanoes probably had a small warming effect from pre-industrial times to 1950 and a small cooling effect afterward.These basic conclusions have been endorsed by more than 40 scientific societies and academies of science, including all of the national academies of science of the major industrialized countries'

Climate model projections summarized in the latest IPCC report indicate that global surface temperature will probably rise a further 1.1 to 6.4 °C (2.0 to 11.5 °F) during the twenty-first centuryThe uncertainty in this estimate arises from the use of models with differing climate sensitivity, and the use of differing estimates of future greenhouse gas emissions. Some other uncertainties include how warming and related changes will vary from region to region around the globe. Most studies focus on the period up to 2100. However, warming is expected to continue beyond 2100 even if emissions stop, because of the large heat capacity of the oceans and the long lifetime of carbon dioxide in the atmosphere'

Increasing global temperature will cause sea levels to rise and will change the amount and pattern of precipitation, probably including expansion of subtropical deserts. The continuing retreat of glaciers, permafrost and sea ice is expected, with the Arctic region being particularly affected. Other likely effects include shrinkage of the Amazon rainforest and Boreal forests, increases in the intensity of extreme weather events, species extinctions and changes in agricultural yields.'

Political and public debate continues regarding the appropriate response to global warming. The available options are mitigation to reduce further emissions; adaptation to reduce the damage caused by warming; and, more speculatively, geoengineering to reverse global warming. Most national governments have signed and ratified the Kyoto Protocol aimed at reducing greenhouse gas emissions'
