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 homeowner to use the sun to power daily life: running your ac system, washing clothing, enjoying TELEVISION, cooking supper. All while lowering your carbon footprint, and without burning nonrenewable fuel sources or putting a strain on the electrical grid. And while the ecological benefits of solar power are considerable, lots of property owners discover that the convenience, special functions, and cost savings of owning a solar power system are much more attractive.

Leading Benefits of Solar Energy

#1 Drastically minimize or even remove your electrical costs

Whether you're a property owner, service, or nonprofit, electricity expenses can comprise a large part of your monthly expenditures. With a photovoltaic panel system, you'll generate free power for your system's entire 25+ year lifecycle. Even if you don't produce One Hundred Percent of the energy you consume, solar will minimize your energy bills and you'll still save a lot of money.

#2 Make a great return on your investment

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

#3 Safeguard against increasing energy costs

Among the most clear cut benefits of solar panels is the capability to hedge utility costs. In the past 10 years, domestic electricity prices have actually increased by approximately three percent every year. By investing in a solar energy system now, you can fix your electrical energy rate and safeguard against unpredictable boosts in electrical power costs. If you're a service or house owner with ever-changing capital, going solar likewise helps you better forecast and handle your expenses.

#4 Increase your home or business value

Multiple studies have actually discovered that houses geared up with solar energy systems have higher residential or commercial property worths and sell more rapidly than non-solar homes. Appraisers are progressively 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, need for homes equipped 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 crucial component of achieving energy self-reliance in the United States. By increasing our capacity to generate electrical power from the sun, we can also insulate our country from price fluctuations in global energy markets.

#6 Create jobs and assist your regional economy

Inning accordance with The Solar Foundation, the solar industry added tasks at a rate nearly 12 times faster than the general U.S. economy in 2015, representing 1.2 percent of all tasks in the country. This development is expected to continue. Because solar-related jobs 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 fantastic way to lower your carbon footprint. Buildings are accountable for 38 percent of all carbon emissions in the United States, and going solar can significantly reduce that number. A common residential solar panel system will remove 3 to four lots of carbon emissions each year-- the equivalent of planting over 100 trees every year.

#8 Show your dedication to sustainability

Sustainability and business social responsibility are necessary components of a company's culture and values. They likewise produce bottom line outcomes. Significantly, consumers and neighborhoods are acknowledging and rewarding organisations that pick to run properly. Organisations are finding that "green" qualifications are a powerful motorist of customer acquiring decisions, developing goodwill and enhancing business results.

#9 Start Saving from Day 1

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

Many property owners select to finance their photovoltaic panels with one of the "pay-as-you-go" funding options. This implies that a third-party company-- the solar service provider-- owns the planetary system and takes care of installation, maintenance, tracking and repair works. You just pay the solar company for electrical energy-- less than you would've paid the utility business.

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

#10. Solar is a Secure Investment

The energy business are infamous for their fluctuating and unreliable electrical power rates. There is clearly an upward trend.

With solar panels and simple mathematics, we can determine what does it cost? electricity will be generated, and most importantly, at what cost, for at least the next 20 years (repaired energy costs).

Frequently Asked Questions

In A Cell,Which Part Stores Substances,And Which Part Gets Energy From Food?Homework Help!?
I Need To Know Also Makes Food! I Need To Know The Parts That Carry Hereditary Information. I Need To Know Which Part Stores Chemicals. Lastly I Need To Know Which Part Most Chemical Reactions Take Place!Help!Help!Help!Help!Help!Help!Help!

The cell nucleus houses the cell's chromosomes, and is the place where almost all DNA replication and RNA synthesis occur.

Mitochondria play a critical role in generating energy in the eukaryotic cell, a process involving a number of complex metabolic pathways. Chloroplasts are larger than mitochondria, and convert solar energy into a chemical energy ("food") via photosynthesis.

Log Fires And Co2?
Some Of My Friends Tell Me That I Should Find Better Ways To Heat My House With The Environment In Mind. I Heat My House With A Log Fire. I Only Need The Fire On At Night As I Live In A Temperate Climate. I Have No Central Heating And I Have Solar Panels To Heat A Small Swimming Pool. Who Is Correct, My Friends Or Does It Matter What Fuel I Use.

all fuels emit some type of 'waste' product.

logs are a renewable fuel source you must weigh the use verses the cost of a retrofit application. of course you could just plug in a small space heater on those occasions. but fire is so primal and romantic.

but like i said it is a renewable source and fairly inexpensive, the emissions are negligible for the amount that you are using, and this is fairly safe assuming that you keep your fire box and chimney in good repair and swept for obstructions and build up of flammables.

from the sounds of things your are doing just fine to lessen your footprint on the environment. so many people are so quick to criticize. i say enjoy your fire.

Innovative Minds? How Can Waste Energy Be Put To A Beneficial Use?
Who Can Think Of An Innovative Idea/Invention Of An Efficient Power Conversion System That Would Convert Waste Energy From Conventional Energy To Help The Economy Or Environment

This is already happening in various forms all over the world.

The methane gas in cow manure is being used to power generators, providing much of the electricity to run farms and rances.

In other sites, garbage is burned for similar reasons.

The, otherwise, unused energy of wind movement turns huge turbines. Water that, naturally runs down hill is used in the same way.

Most of what makes these forms of energy "wasteful" is in their unused potential. It is not really "waste." Sunlight, falling on the desert sands isn't wasted, but, by putting solar panels up, to capture the energy of sunlight is redirecting it to "other" uses.

Hybrid and all electric vehicles are designed to recapture the energy spent on accelerating the vehicle, which would otherwise be wasted when brakes are applied. The same motors that power the wheels become generators that put some of that energy back into the batteries..

I imagine one of the next big steps in converting waste into useful purposes may be in the development of household appliances that do, for the individual home, what the larger, more sophisticated systems to for industry, captureing household waste and applying the energy savings directly back to the home.

How Much Power Does Solar Energy Use?
If You Also Give Me A Website It Would Be A Big Help Thx.

Solar energy, radiant light and heat from the sun, has been harnessed by humans since ancient times using a range of ever-evolving technologies. Solar radiation, along with secondary solar-powered resources such as wind and wave power, hydroelectricity and biomass, account for most of the available renewable energy on earth. Only a minuscule fraction of the available solar energy is used.

Solar powered electrical generation relies on heat engines and photovoltaics. Solar energy's uses are limited only by human ingenuity. A partial list of solar applications includes space heating and cooling through solar architecture, potable water via distillation and disinfection, daylighting, solar hot water, solar cooking, and high temperature process heat for industrial purposes.To harvest the solar energy, the most common way is to use solar panels.

Solar technologies are broadly characterized as either passive solar or active solar depending on the way they capture, convert and distribute solar energy. Active solar techniques include the use of photovoltaic panels and solar thermal collectors to harness the energy. Passive solar techniques include orienting a building to the Sun, selecting materials with favorable thermal mass or light dispersing properties, and designing spaces that naturally circulate air.

Solar Fan Energy?
Earlier Today I Was Given A Question Where Energy Comes From, From A Solar Fan. There Were 4 Choices, The Motor, The Solar Panel, The Batteries, Or The Fan. Which One Is It? Thanks.

since one of your choices is not "the sun"
I would say the solar panels.

pholtovotaic (PV) panels turn light into electrical energy

I am suprised that a solar fan has batteries, that is so you can charge the batteries by putting it in a sunny place and charging them with the fan off

if it is dark and the fan is running then the energy is flowing out of the batteries, but the batteries are not making energy, they store it.

the motor turns the electrical energy into kinetic(movement) energy

the fan blades turn the movement of the motor into movement of air.


so, of the 4, it is definitely the panels
