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 use the sun to power everyday life: running your a/c, washing clothes, seeing TELEVISION, cooking supper. All while lowering your carbon footprint, and without burning nonrenewable fuel sources or putting a pressure on the electrical grid. And while the ecological advantages of solar power are considerable, lots of property owners discover that the benefit, distinct functions, and cost savings of owning a solar power system are a lot more attractive.

Top 10 Benefits of Solar Energy

#1 Drastically decrease or perhaps eliminate your electric expenses

Whether you're a property owner, business, or nonprofit, electricity expenses can make up a large portion of your month-to-month expenditures. With a solar panel system, you'll produce totally free power for your system's entire 25+ year lifecycle. Even if you do not produce 100 percent of the energy you take in, solar will decrease your energy costs and you'll still save a great deal of cash.

#2 Make an excellent return on your financial investment

Photovoltaic panels aren't a cost-- they're one of the best methods to invest, with returns measuring up to those of more traditional financial investments like stocks and bonds. Thanks to significant electrical energy bill 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 versus increasing energy costs

One of the most clear cut benefits of solar panels is the ability to hedge utility prices. In the past 10 years, property electrical energy prices have actually increased by an average of 3 percent annually. By buying a solar energy system now, you can repair your electrical energy rate and secure versus unforeseeable increases in electrical power costs. If you're an organisation or homeowner with ever-changing cash flow, going solar also assists you better projection and manage your costs.

#4 Increase your home worth

Numerous studies have found that homes geared up with solar energy systems have greater 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 property buyers end up being more informed about solar, demand for residential or commercial properties 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 a key element of achieving energy independence in the United States. By increasing our capability to create electrical energy from the sun, we can also insulate our nation from price fluctuations in international energy markets.

#6 Create jobs and help your regional economy

Inning accordance with The Solar Foundation, the solar industry included jobs at a rate nearly 12 times faster than the total U.S. economy in 2015, representing 1.2 percent of all jobs in the country. This development is anticipated to continue. Because solar-related jobs have the tendency to be higher paying and can not be contracted out, they are a substantial contributor to the U.S. economy.

#7 Safeguard the environment

Solar is a terrific method to decrease your carbon footprint. Buildings are responsible for 38 percent of all carbon emissions in the United States, and going solar can substantially decrease that number. A normal domestic solar panel system will eliminate 3 to 4 lots of carbon emissions each year-- the equivalent of planting over 100 trees annually.

#8 Show your dedication to sustainability

Sustainability and corporate social responsibility are very important parts of a company's culture and worths. They likewise produce bottom line results. Progressively, customers and neighborhoods are acknowledging and rewarding companies that opt to operate responsibly. Services are finding that "green" credentials are an effective chauffeur of consumer getting decisions, developing goodwill and enhancing service outcomes.

#9 Start Conserving from Day 1

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

Numerous house owners select to finance their solar panels with among the "pay-as-you-go" funding alternatives. 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 simply pay the solar service provider for electrical power-- less than you would've paid the utility 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 utility business are infamous for their fluctuating and undependable electricity costs. There is plainly an upward trend.

With solar panels and simple mathematics, we can calculate just how much electrical power will be generated, and most significantly, at exactly what rate, for at least the next 20 years (repaired energy expenses).

Financing

What are the various payment options?

We have many flexible purchasing agreements for customers who would like to install a new home solar system. There are three different payment options, making them a viable choice for customers of all budgets. The payment options include Lease, PPA, and Purchase.

  • Flexible end-of-term options, including system upgrade, lease extension, and free panel removal

Power Purchase Agreement (PPA)

  • We own the solar panel system
  • $0 down for installation
  • Customers only pay for the solar energy that they use

Purchase

  • Customer pays for the system upfront and owns the system
  • System monitoring and maintenance for 20 years
  • Receive 30% federal tax credit
  • See a return on investment within 7-10 years

What happens when the contract for my lease is finished?

We provide our customers with a few different options for when their lease contract is up. Customers can upgrade their equipment to the newest solar technology available, extend the agreement, or have the panels removed at no cost.

What is the warranty?

The Lease and PPA include a 20-year warranty during the lifetime of the system. This warranty exceeds that of most other solar installers’ warranties.

Frequently Asked Questions

Kinetic Or Potential Energy? ?
Classify Each Of The Following As Having Either Kinetic Energy,Potential Energy Or Both A.A Pile Of Fire Wood B. Light C.Wind D. A Gallon Of Gasoline

A pille of fire wood would have potential energy, because it could burn, or the pile itself could fall if nudged.

Light is moving photons, or kinetic energy. Solar sails could use photons to accelerate space ships.

Wind is kinetic energy, it is moving air molecules.

A gallon of gasoline is potential energy, because it could burn and release its chemical energy. Unless it were moving in the tank of your car, it would not have any kinetic energy on its own.

Why Are &Quot;Conservatives&Quot; So Bent On Not Conserving Energy?
They'Re Always Saying Or Writing Things Like: &Quot;Ain'T No Such Thing As Peak Oil. Shale Will Save Us!&Quot; (Failure To Understand The Difference Between Hypothetical Reserves And Usable Flow-Rates; See: 1970 U.S. Oil Production Peak) &Quot;Idling An Engine For Many Minutes Uses Less Energy Than Stopping And Restarting It.&Quot; (Simply False For Periods Over 30 Seconds Or So; No Big Surge Of Fuel Is Needed To Restart An Engine) &Quot;It Takes More Energy To Turn A Light Off And On Vs. Leaving It On For Hours.&Quot; (Bogus For The Same Reason As The Engine-Idling Lie) &Quot;Hybrid Car Batteries & Cfl Bulbs Are Major Pollution Sources.&Quot; (They Claim To Care About Pollution When Mocking Energy-Conserving Technologies, But When Fracking Pollutes Ground Water It'S No Big Deal) Why Are These People So Compelled To Waste Energy, Cause Pollution And Label It As &Quot;Patriotism&Quot; Or &Quot;God'S Will?&Quot; You'D Think Conservation Would Be A Conservative Value. Try To Answer This Question Without Changing The Subject To Taxes.

They're being conservative in terms of where our jobs are from and wish to expand on what we have now.

Shale oil is called tight oil because it could not be easily accessed. The reserves are proven and we've known they existed for a very long time but wells would run dry within days due to how shallow the reserve is, sometimes as little as 30 feet thick. With modern horizontal drilling and fracking, it's become possible to access tight oil and it is a reserve much larger than Saudi Arabia. However fracking comes with a significant threat to ground water despite a separation of hundreds to thousands of feet of solid rock mostly because we know little about microfractures. I believe that the pipeline and tar sands debacle is just to distract the public by pushing tar sands as the whipping boy while shale oil is developed, people are so easily manipulated.

EV batteries are to some extent an unnecessary expense. Both hydrocarbon fuels and batteries are just chemical stores of energy, fossil fuels being solar energy captured millions of years ago. Since the 1920's we've known how to synthesize fuels from syngas, a mixture of carbon monoxide and hydrogen gases which can be made from fossil fuel, from biomass such as trash and dried sewage or even directly from CO2 and water. We can in fact "recharge" gasoline and diesel from other energy sources just as you would recharge an EV. All of the billion vehicles existing today could be made "green" just by addressing how we make our fuel. But this doesn't sell new cars. Hybrids, flexfuel, hydrogen and EV's are greenwashing to sell new cars and so many people fall for that.

Conservatism is a resistance to change, a preference for the tried and true, this often isn't the best answer and may be horribly insufficient given the threats of the next few decades but it slows down the rate at which people are so easily misled, it also entrenches mistakes but the idea is to minimize them. All that people think is green is not green.

What Are The Benefits Of Using Hydrogen To Produce Energy?
Safe For Ur Help

Hydrogen does not "produce" energy. Hydrogen is a great energy carrier.
The energy (less losses in the system of producing it) is simply transferred to a different form.
Hydrogen is not found naturally on its own. We cannot drill a well somewhere and tap hydrogen. It has to be made.

If for example, you use a solar cell (not better than 14% efficient) to convert sunlight to electricity which is stored in a battery, and then use electrolysis to separate hydrogen and oxygen from water, then the electrolysis process (only about 12% efficient) will turn what energy is left into a fuel that may be burned.

The engine (say a internal combustion engine at around 30% efficiency) burns the gas for some mechanical effort being produced.

The only way I can see this working on large scales is to harness the power of the waves to produce electricity. That electricity would be used on the spot to electrolyze sea water to produce Hydrogen, Oxygen and some Chlorine. This is the way salt water pool chlorinators work. The chlorine breaks down quickly in sunlight and is not an ongoing issue.
The wave energy is also able to be used to pump the hydrogen to shore for distribution in conventional pipelines and gas distribution systems.

As far as generating hydrogen from a battey bank to run a car - you can see that because of the losses in converting from one form to another, there is little point in doing this. We may as well have used the energy from the battery to drive a high efficiency electric motor to move the car. Some rare earth magnet motors are now well over 90% efficient.

The benefits of using hydrogen are that it REMAINS a good energy carrier even after many years of storage - something that is not true of batteries.

What Are Some Positive And Negative Economic Or Environmental Consequences Of Solar Energy Short Or Long Term?

One of the most important negative issues regarding solar is the lack of public knowledge about the current status of solar. A second negative is that there is a high up front cost for purchase and installation. A third negative is that the main components of the solar panels has been a limiting factor. A fourth negative is that the current producers of electric energy are not eager to give up their big profits. A fifth negative is that solar manufacturers do not yet have large expendable financial resources to buy political clout. The oil industry seems to toy with solar investors, driving oil prices high, teasing investors to buy solar, then drop oil prices, causing solar companies to go broke. Once the investment money is gone, it can take a long time to recover. Once an investor loses on their solar investment, they are much less likely to invest again. Maybe the scariest of the negatives is that so many people have again fallen prey to the belief that nuclear can save us and is clean and safe. Uh huh!

The first positive fact about solar is that a lot of companies are finally starting to see that solar, even without the subsidies that all other energy companies have enjoyed is catching on. Google, for example is really making an extreme effort to use it at their own buildings. The second positive fact is that while the cost of purchase and installation has a higher up front cost, nothing has to be purchased again and after 5-10 years the panels will be paid off and from that time forward, there will be no energy cost increases and any electricity produced will get a refund from the power company. It appears also that photovoltaic solar units are on the verge of a major decrease in costs and may soon be favorably or similarly competetive with current energy sources. A third positive feature of solar is that there is absolutely no waste produced. When panels reach their end of life, they can be safely recycled. There is no soot, no radioactive waste, no carbon dioxide, no fear of oil embargos, just cash in your pocket year after year.

I Have Got To Make A Symposium On Ethanol As Fuel And Other Future Fuels Please Help?
Donot Post Wikipedia Articles Site Names Will Be Appreciated

Weelll, theoretically there are 7 forms of energy, so any one of them could move a vehicle.

For example:

compressed air, no need for combustion to produce differential pressure (browse "air car");
nuke ... not really an option for a car;
electricity ... lots of "potential" there *lol*, taking either batteries, fuel cells or both (browse "Ballard fuel cell").
magnetic induction ... the highway provides the power ... no need to elevate the car or go 400kph, but it could be applied to cars(browse high speed trains);
combustibles ... are there any that are benign or are they all based on H-C-O chemical reactions; and
solar.

I would approach it from an energy density perspective. Nuclear is the most dense form of energy, oil the second, H2 is probably the least, at least @STP. You can also correlate hazard versus energy density to see which forms "are worth it".
