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 a/c, washing clothes, viewing TV, 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, lots of residents find that the convenience, unique functions, and expense savings of owning a solar power system are much more attractive.

Top Ten Benefits of Solar Energy

#1 Considerably reduce and even remove your electric costs

Whether you're a homeowner, company, or nonprofit, electricity expenses can comprise a big portion of your regular monthly costs. With a solar panel system, you'll produce complimentary power for your system's whole 25+ year lifecycle. Even if you don't produce 100 percent of the energy you take in, solar will decrease your energy expenses and you'll still conserve a great deal of cash.

#2 Earn a fantastic return on your financial investment

Solar panels aren't a cost-- they are among the very best methods to invest, with returns equaling those of more conventional investments like stocks and bonds. Thanks to significant electricity costs 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 Safeguard against increasing energy expenses

One of the most clear cut benefits of solar panels is the ability to hedge energy prices. In the past 10 years, domestic electricity prices have gone up by an average of 3 percent every year. By buying a solar energy system now, you can repair your electricity rate and secure versus unforeseeable boosts in electrical energy costs. If you're an organisation or homeowner with changing cash circulation, going solar also assists you better projection and manage your expenditures.

#4 Increase your home worth

Multiple research studies have actually found that houses equipped with solar energy systems have greater residential or commercial property values and sell quicker 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 become more educated about solar, need for residential or commercial properties equipped with solar panel systems will continue to grow.

#5 Increase U.S. energy self-reliance

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 generate electrical power from the sun, we can also insulate our nation from price fluctuations in worldwide energy markets.

#6 Create jobs and help your local economy

According to The Solar Foundation, the solar market included jobs at a rate almost 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. Because solar-related tasks have the tendency to be higher paying and can not be outsourced, they are a substantial factor to the United States economy.

#7 Secure the environment

Solar is a terrific way to minimize your carbon footprint. Structures are accountable for 38 percent of all carbon emissions in the United States, and going solar can significantly decrease that number. A normal residential solar panel system will get rid of 3 to 4 lots of carbon emissions each year-- the equivalent of planting over 100 trees each year.

#8 Demonstrate your commitment to sustainability

Sustainability and business social obligation are essential parts of an organization's culture and worths. They also produce bottom line outcomes. Increasingly, customers and communities are acknowledging and rewarding organisations that choose to operate properly. Services are finding that "green" credentials are an effective chauffeur of customer getting choices, producing goodwill and improving service outcomes.

#9 Start Conserving from Day 1

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

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

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

#10. Solar is a Secure Investment

The utility companies are well-known for their varying and unreliable electrical power prices. There is plainly an upward pattern.

With photovoltaic panels and basic math, we can calculate just how much electrical energy will be generated, and most importantly, at exactly what cost, for a minimum of the next Twenty Years (fixed energy costs).

Financing

What are the various payment options?

Efficient And Effective Solar To Electricity Units For Home Use?
I Have Two South Facing Windows In Beijing, Hot Sunny Summers Mean I Am Going To Cover Those Windows Anyway, I May As Well Cover Them With A Solar/Electricity Generator! I Hope There Is Something That Will Generate A Usable Current, Maybe Charge A Bank Of Batteries That Will Power An Air Conditioner For A Few Hours Then Switch The Air Conditioner Back To The Grid! All Constructive Ideas Are Welcome!

It is not all that easy. A section of solar panels the size of the windows would not produce enough wattage to justify the cost of installation. Don't expect a small system to be useful in charging a bank of batteries to run an air conditioner. A small air window air conditioner (5K BTU)will draw 15 amps @ 120 volts momentarily on start up. Run current will in around 8 to 9 amps depending on the efficiency of the unit. This requires an inverter that can supply around 2 kw @ 120 volts AC. I live in Southwestern Florida, which is sunny about 75% of the time. Even here in order to be piratical the panels have to be mounted on the roof of the house on the South side and cover an area of around 400 sq. feet. This makes the panels generate enough electricity throughout the day to make their use practical. Don't forget it is not just the panels themselves. Those are just a part of the system. There is the DC to AC inverter with its controls and safety circuits and the hookup to your electrical entrance. The average household in the USA uses around 1 kw per hour. Which means to see a useful decrease in your electric bill you would need at least 400 sq. ft. of panels in south Florida. More, the farther you go north. You can have a small system designed for limited use. This industry is rapidly changing and the cost of solar cells and inverters is decreasing rapidly. The price has been kept high due to commercial industry buying up most of the solar cell panels that are manufactured. Due to increased output of panels and somewhat decreasing commercial demand the prices are beginning to drop. Oh well...I did it again. Sorry for the lengthy dissertation. I sometimes talk too much.

Nuclear Power. Where Does The Energy Really Come From - Read Entire Question -?
Any Type Of Energy Generation Tha You Can Think Of Goes Back To The Sun: Fossil Fuels. Energy Stored In Plants That Came From The Sun Which Turned Into Coal, Oil, Natural Gas, Etc,. Wood, The Same. Trees Stored Solar Energy Using Their Leaves As Solar Collectors. Wind. All The Wind On Earth Can Be Attributed To Changes Due To The Warming And Cooling / Weather Patterns Caused By The Sun. You Can Say The Same For Hydroelectric Via Evaporation Of The Oceans And Bodies Of Water Brought About By Hear From The Sun Causing Rain Which Changes The Elevation Of Masses Of Water Which Fall To Earth And Makes It'S Way To Sea Level. The Only Exception I Can Think Of Is Nuclear Energy. Given That One Can Never Create Matter Or Energy, Just Change It'S Form, Where Did This Energy Originate Which We Release Via Nuclear Fusion / Fission?

The heavy elements used in nuclear reactions, Uranium, Plutonium, were created by supernovae. So, theoretically the root source of the energy does go back to solar energy - the solar energy of another sun - a star (or stars) which is (are) long gone. In the case of Hydrogen and Helium, they were created by the Big Bang.
