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 air conditioning unit, washing clothing, watching TV, cooking supper. All while decreasing 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, many residents discover that the convenience, unique functions, and cost savings of owning a solar power system are a lot more alluring.

Top Ten Benefits of Solar Energy

#1 Considerably minimize and even remove your electric bills

Whether you're a house owner, service, or not-for-profit, electrical power costs can make up a large portion of your monthly expenses. With a solar panel system, you'll produce complimentary power for your system's entire 25+ year lifecycle. Even if you do not produce 100 percent of the energy you consume, solar will reduce your utility bills and you'll still save a great deal of money.

#2 Make a great return on your investment

Photovoltaic panels aren't a cost-- they're one of the very best ways to invest, with returns rivaling those of more traditional investments like stocks and bonds. Thanks to significant electrical power expense cost savings, the typical American homeowner pays off their photovoltaic panel system in 7 to 8 years and sees an ROI of 20 percent or more.

#3 Protect against increasing energy costs

Among the most clear cut benefits of solar panels is the capability to hedge utility rates. In the previous 10 years, domestic electrical power costs have gone up by approximately three percent annually. By buying a solar energy system now, you can repair your electrical power rate and safeguard versus unforeseeable boosts in electricity expenses. If you're a business or homeowner with changing cash flow, going solar also helps you better forecast and manage your costs.

#4 Increase your home worth

Multiple research studies have discovered that houses geared up with solar energy systems have higher home worths and offer more quickly 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 end up being more educated about solar, demand for homes geared up 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 achieving energy independence in the United States. By increasing our capacity to produce electrical power from the sun, we can also insulate our country from rate changes in international energy markets.

#6 Create jobs and help your regional economy

According to The Solar Foundation, the solar market added tasks at a rate nearly 12 times faster than the overall U.S. economy in 2015, representing 1.2 percent of all jobs in the country. This development is anticipated to continue. Due to the fact that solar-related jobs tend to be higher paying and can not be contracted out, they are a considerable factor to the United States economy.

#7 Safeguard the environment

Solar is a fantastic method to reduce your carbon footprint. Buildings are accountable for 38 percent of all carbon emissions in the U.S., and going solar can considerably decrease that number. A common residential solar panel system will remove three to four loads of carbon emissions each year-- the equivalent of planting over 100 trees yearly.

#8 Show your commitment to sustainability

Sustainability and corporate social responsibility are necessary elements of an organization's culture and worths. They also produce bottom line outcomes. Progressively, customers and neighborhoods are recognizing and rewarding organisations that decide to run properly. Services are discovering that "green" qualifications are an effective chauffeur of consumer getting decisions, creating goodwill and improving company results.

#9 Start Conserving from Day 1

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

Numerous homeowners opt to finance their solar panels with one of the "pay-as-you-go" funding choices. This suggests that a third-party company-- the solar company-- owns the planetary system and looks after installation, maintenance, tracking and repair works. You merely pay the solar provider for electrical power-- 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 Financial investment

The energy business are notorious for their changing and undependable electrical power costs. There is plainly an upward trend.

With photovoltaic panels and simple mathematics, we can determine just how much electrical energy will be created, and most notably, at exactly what cost, for at least the next 20 years (fixed energy expenses).


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.

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

How Big Will Will A Solar Panel Need To Be To Produce Around 9 Volts?
I'M Doing An Electronics Gcse And Since The Theme This Year Is The Whole &Quot;Green&Quot; Theme, I Am Thinking To Try And Make My Project Solar Powered. I Need The Panel To Provide At Least 9 Volts (A Pp3 Baterry) To Power My Circuit. Also, If I Decide To Make It Solar Powered, Will It Store The Made Electricity Or Will It Only Power The Circuit When There Is Sun Available?

The output voltage of a single Silicon solar cell is around 0.5V to 0.6V, In order to provide a higher voltage you need several cells in series to produce the required output. A commercially available solar cell may already be configured in this way.

A solar cell will only supply a current whilst it is illuminated, it does not store electrical energy. However you could use a bank of solar cells to keep a battery charged. The battery will supply the necessary current when the light intensity is insufficient to supply your circuit. You would need to use a solar cell whose average current during a day and night period is greater than the average current that your circuit requires during that period in order to keep the battery charged.

The physical size of the solar panel that you require will depend upon the current that your circuit requires as well as the voltage. Without this information, it is not possible to say how large your solar cells need to be.

Low current devices (such as calculators) can be supplied from solar cells of only a few square centimetres surface area, You should spend some time on designing your circuit to use as little power as possible. That will greatly reduce the size (and cost) of the solar cell that you require.

As mentioned in another answer it is possible to buy solar powered garden lights and cannibalise them as a cheap souce of solar cells and batteries.

Where Are Solar Pannels Mostly Located? And Why Are They Put There?
What I Mean Is Like Were There Found In The U.S. And Why They Specifically Place These Solar Pannels In That Location.

#1 Southern exposure of a roof
#2 Southern exposure of a separate panel

They aim south because that's where the sun is.
The roof is good because it avoids a lot of things that might cause a shadow to block the sun.
A separate panel - something that is not built onto/into some other structure is easier to make so that you can change the angle to track the sun either daily or seasonally.

Has Anyone Tried The Solar Panels For Homes N How Do I Know How Much I Need ?

What you should do is look up solar installers in your phone book, and get some free quotes. No one can give you a good estimate without knowing where you live, and how much energy you use each year (they will look at your energy bills for the last year).
