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 daily life: running your air conditioning unit, washing clothing, watching TV, cooking supper. All while minimizing 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 substantial, many residents find that the benefit, unique functions, and expense savings of owning a solar power system are much more enticing.

Top Ten Benefits of Solar Energy

#1 Drastically lower or even eliminate your electric costs

Whether you're a homeowner, company, or nonprofit, electrical energy expenses can make up a large portion of your month-to-month expenditures. With a photovoltaic panel system, you'll produce free 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 energy costs and you'll still conserve a great deal of money.

#2 Earn an excellent return on your investment

Photovoltaic panels aren't an expense-- they're one of the finest methods to invest, with returns measuring up to those of more conventional investments like stocks and bonds. Thanks to substantial electrical power bill savings, the typical American property owner settles 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 advantages of solar panels is the ability to hedge energy costs. In the past ten years, domestic electrical power prices have gone up by approximately 3 percent yearly. By investing in a solar energy system now, you can repair your electrical energy rate and safeguard against unforeseeable increases in electrical power costs. If you're a business or property owner with rising and falling capital, going solar also helps you better forecast and handle your expenses.

#4 Increase your home worth

Numerous research studies have found that homes equipped with solar energy systems have higher residential or commercial property worths and sell more quickly than non-solar homes. Appraisers are significantly taking solar setups into factor to consider as they value homes at the time of a sale, and as property buyers become more educated about solar, need for homes 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 crucial component of achieving energy independence in the United States. By increasing our capability to generate electrical power from the sun, we can likewise insulate our nation from rate fluctuations in global energy markets.

#6 Create jobs and help your regional economy

According to The Solar Structure, the solar industry added jobs at a rate nearly 12 times faster than the general U.S. economy in 2015, representing 1.2 percent of all tasks in the nation. This growth is expected to continue. Because solar-related tasks tend to be greater paying and can not be outsourced, they are a considerable factor to the United States economy.

#7 Safeguard the environment

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

#8 Demonstrate your dedication to sustainability

Sustainability and business social responsibility are very important elements of an organization's culture and worths. They likewise produce bottom line outcomes. Progressively, customers and neighborhoods are acknowledging and rewarding organisations that select to operate responsibly. Companies are finding that "green" credentials are a powerful motorist of consumer acquiring choices, producing goodwill and enhancing company outcomes.

#9 Start Conserving from Day 1

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

Many house owners decide to finance their solar panels with among the "pay-as-you-go" financing choices. This suggests that a third-party business-- the solar company-- owns the solar system and looks after setup, upkeep, monitoring and repair works. You simply pay the solar supplier for electrical power-- less than you would've paid the energy 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 energy business are well-known for their fluctuating and undependable electrical power prices. There is clearly an upward pattern.

With solar panels and basic mathematics, we can calculate how much electrical energy will be produced, and most importantly, at exactly what cost, for at least the next Twenty Years (repaired energy costs).


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.

The Lease

  • Low, fixed payments each month

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

What Has Been The Impact Of Climate Change Measures Taken On Economic Growth?
I'M Doing A Report For School On How Measures To Slow Down Global Warming Have Effected The Economy And Economic Growth. Since This Is A Report, It Would Be The Easiest If You Guys Could Help Me With Some Of The Bigger Topics Involved With This And I'Ll Do Research On That. So I Guess It'S Best If It'S General. 10 Points To The Best Answer!

europe has adopted a cap and trade policy for carbon emissions which caps each company's carbon emissions but allows them to buy and sell carbon allowances from each other. you can see if this has had economic growth affects.

germany has adopted solar power in a big way. see if there has been any growth impact. spain has adoped wind power.

there are other means such as improving efficiency of energy use but i strongly doubt any of these measures has really affected econ growth in any way.

What Is The Next Big Energy Source ?
Ok So I Am Doing A Science Report On The The Next Alternative Renewable Sources Of Energy That I Would Like To See Become The New Mainstream Sources Of Energy. I Then Need To Find Out If People Feel The Same Way About The Alternative Sources I Have Selected And That'S Where You Come In. Your Time Is Greatly Appreciated. Note : I Have Spent Months Researching These Please Do Not Give Me Info I Just Need Your Opinion Of Whether You Like/Dislike My Choices Or If There Are Any Others You Would Like To See As Well. Also If You Add Why / Why Not That Would Be Great To. Ok So My Next Big Alternative Energy Sources Are : #1) Nuclear ( Though It Is Debatable As To Whether It Is Renewable It Has Not Yet Been Proven ) #2) Solar Energy I Do Not Believe Wind Is Suitable As I Find It To Be Kinda Unreliable And Has Proven To Be Not As Effective. Though I Suppose Soem Of You Could Debate This As It Is Cheaper :P So Lets Hear It. Discuss...

The answer is we're going to need both. The gap left by oil will be so big that no single source can deliver, and all the alternatives have problems.

The need for reliable sources and politics will push us towards nuclear becasue it delivers a huge bang (tee) with certainty. If we're lucky, we'll move to Tritium as a fuel. Wind will be niche until we are desperate enough to accept the need for land based wind farms on every hill top. Then wind will get some traction.

Wind is the long term bet because, as soon as nuclear becomes popular, we'll notice there's only 40 years woht of Uranium inthe world.

Generating Your Own Solar Energy, Is It Worth The Effort?
Just Need To Get Your Opinion If It's Worth The Hassle Setting A Solar Power Generator At Home? How Do You Compute How Much Money You Can Save? How Do You Determine If It's Viable? Your Detailed And Meaningful Answers Will Be Very Much Appreciated. Thanks

Solar hot water almost always pays back in about 4 years, if displacing electric hot water, if you live in a warm climate.

For solar electric, whether you will really save money varies widely by area.

The usual computation is to take the cost of the solar electric system (including panels, mounts, inverter, labor, tax, and fees - but minus tax breaks and incentives) and assume that the cost will be spread over 25 years. So if your system ends up costing you $25,000 net, that would be $1000 per year. You would compare that with your electric bills for a year, and see if it's cheaper.

I've left some things out, such as the cost of money over time, the possible rising price of electricity relative to inflation, and the maintenance cost of replacing the inverter once during the system's lifetime, but the above is the general idea.

The best way to get an idea is to call several professional installers for free quotes. They will generally run the analysis, and inform you as to how much you could save. You can compare their answers with each other, and with common sense, and judge for yourself. Don't rush into anything.

Why Is There So Much Resistance To Embracing The Future In The Usa In Regards To Alternative Energy???
Its Almost Like The Country Is Bent On Staying In The Past As Long As Possible. This Is Very Sad To See From What Used To Be The World Leader In Innovation And Pioneer Spirit.

Hi: I agree with some of the previous answers that stated the issue is not about resistance. We can leave that word to the psychotherapists, at least in this context.

Unfortunately, in the year 2008, there is no large-scale alternative energy available. It really is that simple. Where is the solar energy, wind energy, or any other alternative energy source that can sustain the needs of even one small US town (in 2008)?

Every middle-class American who has to shell out big bucks just to drive to work each day would love some alternative to the oil companies.

However, substantive progress in alternative will emerge only after years (hopefully, not decades) of research and development.

I Have A Question About A Question On My Science Test...?
I'M In Grade 9 We'Re Doing A Really Stupid Ecology Unit. We Learned About Cellular Respiration And Photosynthesis; How Plants Intake Water And Co2 And Convert That Into Sugar And Oxygen By Solar Energy, And Cellular Respiration Is Basically The Opposite Process (And Occurs For All Organisms, Not Just Plants). The Question Was Something Like This: &Quot;Technically, Cellular Respiration And Photosynthesis 'Cancel Each Other Out' Meaning There Should Be An Equilibrium Of Oxygen And Co2 In The Environment (This Is Important It Says Environment, Not Just The Atmosphere). Why Then, Is There More Co2 In The Environment? I Wasn'T Exactly Sure Of The Answer, Can I Please Get An Answer And Explanation? Thank You.

That cellular respiration and photosynthesis "cancel each other out" is nonsense. During the Carboniferous the oxygen levels were 60% higher than today's. Was the level correct then or now?

Equilibrium is being taught to you as if it is stagnant. It is not. As factors change the equilibrium changes. I know that sounds contradictory, but think of what happens when you adjust the thermostat on a water heater. The water temperature changes to meet the new equilibrium.

What are the factors that are adjusting the equilibrium level of carbon dioxide away from that in the historical record? It is very likely the burning of long sequestered carbon in fossil fuels is the cause.

If the current level of usage of fossil fuels is maintained for some long length of time it is likely an equilibrium will be reached where the levels in the environment will no longer increase because the CO2 is scrubbed as quickly as added. Will the new equilibrium be beneficial or harmful is another question. Or will it be something we adjust ourselves to?

It is also possible that there is a level of CO2 that causes a runaway greenhouse effect. This is essentially a positive feed back loop. As CO2 levels increase, the Earth's average temperature increases. As the temperature of the oceans increase they are less able to scrub CO2 from the atmosphere. That means the rate of increase of CO2 in the atmosphere increases without a necessary increase to the rate at which it is added.

Think of the money in a bank account. If the account has an automatic withdrawal $1 for monthly service charges and direct deposit of a $100 monthly annuity. The rate of increase will be $99/mo. What happens if the service charge is reduce to 50¢ because the service charge is halved for every $10,000 in the account? When the account gets to $10,000 the rate of increase will then become $99.5/mo.

This may be similar to what happens in the atmosphere. In the atmosphere the additional CO2 was the cause of the reduction in CO2 scrubbing. This causes faster CO2 increases which causes more heating which causes still less scrubbing. And around and around.

Let's hope it achieves a new equilibrium and not a runaway.
