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 home owners to utilize the sun to power everyday life: running your air conditioner, cleaning clothing, seeing TELEVISION, 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 environmental benefits of solar power are considerable, many property owners discover that the convenience, special features, and cost savings of owning a solar power system are much more alluring.

Top 10 Benefits of Solar Energy

#1 Drastically lower and even remove your electrical costs

Whether you're a property owner, service, or not-for-profit, electricity costs can make up a big portion of your regular monthly costs. 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 bills and you'll still save a lot of cash.

#2 Make a fantastic return on your financial investment

Solar panels aren't an expenditure-- they're one of the very best ways to invest, with returns equaling those of more traditional financial investments like stocks and bonds. Thanks to significant electrical power bill savings, the typical American house owner settles their photovoltaic panel system in 7 to eight 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 ability to hedge energy prices. In the past 10 years, residential electrical power prices have actually gone up by approximately 3 percent each year. By buying a solar energy system now, you can repair your electrical power rate and safeguard against unpredictable boosts in electricity costs. If you're an organisation or house owner with ever-changing money circulation, going solar also assists you much better projection and manage your costs.

#4 Increase your home worth

Multiple studies have actually discovered that houses equipped with solar energy systems have higher property values and sell quicker than non-solar houses. Appraisers are progressively 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 properties geared up with photovoltaic panel systems will continue to grow.

#5 Increase U.S. energy independence

The sun is a near-infinite source of energy and a key part of attaining energy independence in the United States. By increasing our capacity to create electrical energy from the sun, we can also insulate our country from rate fluctuations in worldwide energy markets.

#6 Create jobs and help your regional economy

According to The Solar Foundation, the solar market included jobs at a rate nearly 12 times faster than the overall U.S. economy in 2015, representing 1.2 percent of all tasks in the country. This growth is expected to continue. Due to the fact that solar-related jobs have the tendency to be greater paying and can not be contracted out, they are a considerable factor to the U.S. economy.

#7 Secure the environment

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

#8 Demonstrate your commitment to sustainability

Sustainability and corporate social duty are essential elements of a company's culture and values. They also produce bottom line outcomes. Progressively, customers and neighborhoods are acknowledging and rewarding services that pick to run responsibly. Companies are discovering that "green" credentials are a powerful driver of customer acquiring decisions, producing goodwill and enhancing company outcomes.

#9 Start Conserving 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.

Lots of homeowners opt to fund their photovoltaic panels with among the "pay-as-you-go" funding choices. This implies that a third-party company-- the solar supplier-- owns the planetary system and looks after setup, maintenance, tracking and repair works. You just pay the solar service provider for electrical energy-- less than you would've paid the energy 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 companies are infamous for their fluctuating and unreliable electrical energy costs. There is clearly an upward trend.

With photovoltaic panels and simple mathematics, we can calculate how much electrical power will be created, and most notably, at exactly what rate, for a minimum of the next 20 years (fixed energy expenses).

What Are 5 Advantages And 5 Disadvantages Of Solar Energy?
Hello Yahooers Im Doing A Project On Solar Energy And I Wanted To Know What Are 5 Advantages And 5 Disadvantages Of Solar Energy

Advantages
clean
minimal upkeep


Disadvantages
very expensive
extremely inefficient (harvests about 15% of potential energy from sun where coal captures around 50%)
The chemicals used for it are very harmful to environment maybe negate the cleanliness of it once its up
only getting full suns power about 25% of the time (clouds/ night)

in my opinion disadvantages outdo the advantages

Green Energy Project For Environmental Science Class, Solar Panels On The Chrysler Building In Ny?
I Need 3 Types Of Clean Energy For An Environmental Science Project, So Far I Have A Wind Turbine, And Hydroelectric Energy. However, I Need To Figure Out If Solar Panels Could Be Placed On The Eastern Side Of The Top Of The Building In Order To Collect Sunlight. If This Is A Reasonable Idea, What Model Of Solar Panels Should I Use? Is There Any Website You Could Recommend That Would Help Me Set This Up (Approx. Costs To Install/Maintain)? Thanks!

You want to ruin the look of one of the most beautiful buildings in NYC? Shame on you. Pick somewhere else, perhaps the Guggenheim. [Yeah, I know that some artsy type will complain. But they probably support solar energy, so ignore them.]

On second though, put panels on the Great Kills landfill sight. No one lives there but seagulls. There are no trees or tall buildings to block the light. The panels could be placed on swivels that make them face the brightest source of light, the sun. I know that they work because my Sister-in-Law has them on her farm. Four panels, each four times the area of a ping pong table produce more electricity per year than they use. They sell the rest to the power company.

The biggest problem would be cleaning the panels (seagulls are messy). They could be cleaned as part of a community service program for first-time DWI offenders. If that doesn't stop them from drinking and driving, then put them under the landfill.

Why Shouldn'T Solar Energy Be Harnessed On The Sides Of Sky Scrapers?
The Public Should Take Pride In The Fact That 'Their' Building They Work In Produces A 'Sum' Of Solar Energy, So Why Don'T Skyscrapers Utilize This Energy?

I agree with you that this should be done. As lawyerslastbreath saw in Las Vegas, those casinos have the $$money and should use it for solar panels.....If they can't afford it who can?

How Long Can Solar Energy Be Stored?

Solar energy can be stored for exactly the same amount of time as energy produced from any other means. It depends on the storage device.

If it's not stored in a device like a battery, it's gone. Same as any other type of energy generation. But the thing with solar is its regular downtime from night non-production.

If you compared it to, say, a coal power station, the coal supplies power all the time, but it's still not stored as such, the turbine needs to be kept operating 24 hours a day to keep that supply going, which is usually referred to as base load. It's always there (unless the station breaks down!).

But equally important is that coal power stations HAVE to keep running at near full capacity, as it's very bad for their boilers to be cooled down and heated up. So a lot of that night time power that's generated is simply lost. Not stored. Gone. This is one reason why solar is so important. It produces energy when we need it the most - Daytime. And doesn't waste any while continuing to pump out greenhouse emissions.
