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 property owner to utilize the sun to power everyday life: running your ac system, cleaning clothing, watching TELEVISION, cooking supper. All while lowering your carbon footprint, and without burning fossil fuels or putting a stress on the electrical grid. And while the ecological benefits of solar power are significant, numerous residents find that the convenience, unique functions, and cost savings of owning a solar power system are much more attractive.

Top Ten Advantages of Solar Energy

#1 Dramatically minimize and even remove your electric bills

Whether you're a homeowner, business, or nonprofit, electricity costs can comprise a large part of your regular monthly expenditures. With a solar panel system, you'll generate free power for your system's entire 25+ year lifecycle. Even if you don't produce 100 percent of the energy you consume, solar will lower your energy costs and you'll still conserve a lot of cash.

#2 Earn an excellent return on your financial investment

Solar panels aren't an expenditure-- they're one of the finest methods to invest, with returns matching those of more conventional financial investments like stocks and bonds. Thanks to significant electrical power expense cost savings, the typical American homeowner pays off their photovoltaic panel system in seven to 8 years and sees an ROI of 20 percent or more.

#3 Safeguard versus increasing energy costs

One of the most clear cut advantages of photovoltaic panels is the capability to hedge utility prices. In the previous 10 years, property electrical energy rates have increased by approximately three percent each year. By investing in a solar energy system now, you can repair your electricity rate and protect against unpredictable increases in electrical power expenses. If you're a company or homeowner with changing capital, going solar also helps you better projection and handle your expenses.

#4 Increase your property worth

Multiple studies have discovered that homes geared up with solar energy systems have greater property values and offer more quickly than non-solar houses. Appraisers are significantly 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, demand for homes geared up with solar panel systems will continue to grow.

#5 Boost U.S. energy independence

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

#6 Develop jobs and assist your local economy

According to The Solar Foundation, the solar market added jobs at a rate almost 12 times faster than the overall U.S. economy in 2015, representing 1.2 percent of all tasks in the nation. This development is anticipated to continue. Because solar-related jobs tend to be higher paying and can not be outsourced, they are a substantial factor to the United States economy.

#7 Safeguard the environment

Solar is a terrific method to reduce your carbon footprint. Buildings are accountable for 38 percent of all carbon emissions in the United States, and going solar can considerably reduce that number. A typical property solar panel system will eliminate 3 to 4 lots of carbon emissions each year-- the equivalent of planting over 100 trees each year.

#8 Demonstrate your dedication to sustainability

Sustainability and corporate social obligation are necessary parts of an organization's culture and values. They likewise produce bottom line results. Progressively, consumers and communities are recognizing and rewarding services that opt to run properly. Businesses are finding that "green" qualifications are a powerful driver of customer getting decisions, developing goodwill and improving business outcomes.

#9 Start Saving from Day 1

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

Many homeowners select to fund their solar panels with among the "pay-as-you-go" funding options. This means that a third-party business-- the solar supplier-- owns the solar system and looks after installation, upkeep, monitoring and repairs. You simply pay the solar company for electricity-- less than you would've paid the utility company.

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

#10. Solar is a Secure Financial investment

The utility business are well-known for their changing and unreliable electricity costs. There is clearly an upward trend.

With photovoltaic panels and basic math, we can determine just how much electrical power will be produced, and most notably, at what cost, for a minimum of the next 20 years (repaired energy costs).

Financing

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

If Solar Energy Is So Free Why It Is Not Widely Used??

Solar energy is widely used by nature and has long been used by man for drying and heating. However, I suspect you're speaking of electricity from solar energy. The short answer is that the equipment is rather expensive from a capital cost point of view.

Most photovoltaic (PV) systems cost on the order $7 to $12 per Watt of capacity. By the time you divide that installation cost over the actual electricity produced by the system in the 20 to 30 years of its life, you end up paying $.35 to $1.00 per kWh vs the $.10 to $.30 your electric company charges you.

These systems are getting cheaper though, and there are other technologies, such as concentrating solar power, that in the long term will be as cheap as coal or natural gas plants. In the meantime, there are a variety of federal and state programs that will help individuals and corporations pay for solar energy equipment.

What Are Some Ways That Solar Energy, Wind Energy And Food Energy Are Used In Our Everyday Lives At Home?

there are their uses......................
1. we are able to see things or world around us only due to visible light of sun
2. Life exists on earth due to optimum temperature of 10-40 degree which is only possible due to sun..............we also use this heat energy of sun to dry our clothes ,take sun bath and to feel better in winters.
3. wind energy helps to produce electricity in remote areas through wind mills.......,also responsible for rain and season formation,,,,,,, moreover, it has also a entertaining side as - flying kites is only possible due to wind...........
4.food keeps us alive ...........what can i say more
Hope u have met ur answer................

What Is The Cost Of Using Solar Energy?
I Need It 4 A Project Due This Wednesday..........Help Please

Solar is expensive to start and if the sun does not shine not so good. I like the idea and in my area it is impractical but any clean energy helps.

Is It Possible To Power The Whole United States By Solar Power?
I Saw A Movie At School A While Ago That Said We Could Power The Whole United States If We Made A Certain State All Solar Power (I Can'T Remember Which State). Also How Many Watts Does The United States Use That Way I Can Calculate How Many Solar Panels Would Be Needed.

Yes, of the 174 PW of energy that strikes the Earth 86,000 TW reaches the surface. Our global energy consumption is currently 15 TW. True, our current technology can only recover a small fraction of the energy that is available but this is the only source of energy that is greater than the amount of energy that we currently consume.

Current Photovoltaic technology only captures energy in a single wavelength determined by the valence electron shells of the semiconductors used, multiple layer cells can capture more wavelengths by using different semiconductor materials and both dye and quantum dot technology absorbs different frequencies and reemits the energy in the desired frequency. In the past few years, we've seen the efficiency of photovoltaics go from 10% to 42% and 65% is expected soon.

Energy can be stored in numerous ways including chemically in forms that can be used by our current infrastructure. Sandia Labs uses a solar furnace to produce methane, methanol, synthetic gasoline and synthetic diesel from CO2 and H2O.

Nano tubes promises to make artificial photosynthesis a reality and there are several other approaches that are promising.

Keep in mind that all sources of energy on Earth with the exception of nuclear and tidal are solar energy. Very inefficient solar energy and with the case of fossil fuels, accumulated over a long period of time. Also, most of the energy we use was collected by plants through photosynthesis which has a maximum efficiency of 6.6%. This means that current fossil fuels, biofuels, biomass, wave and wind energy are all forms of solar energy at efficiencies of much less than 1%. We only have to achieve minimal improvements of efficiencies in our chemical energy storage methods or other energy storage strategies to access a greater source of energy that what we currently use today.

Theoretically, we should be able to provide for our energy needs through solar power for the foreseeable future and we wouldn't even have to change our cars and factories as the energy could be stored as synthetic liquid fuels. Solar is the only available source of energy that will allow us to grow our industrial and economic base but Solar does require a lot more research and development and the public needs to be educated as to what is possible with solar power and with chemical energy storage.

For economic reasons, other alternate energy forms such as biomass/fuels, hydro, and wind will play a part in our near future but ultimately solar is the only game in town. Note that the use of fourth generation bio-fuels from pyrolysis/gasification of biomass and with biochar carbon sequestration of the pyrolysis/gasification charcoal byproduct will actually be carbon negative and undo some of the damage we've already done to our environment so it's actually necessary to have some gas guzzlers to help undo the damage.

What Is An Albedo, And How Does It Affect Climate Change?

By definition, albedo is the fraction of solar energy (shortwave UV radiation) reflected from the Earth back into space. As far as climate, the more energy reflected back into space, the less UV radiation is absorbed by the Earth.

Factors that increase albedo (cause reflection) are certain types of low layer clouds, aerosols and snow and ice cover as well as non-vegetative land cover. Factors that decrease albedo are vegetative land cover and open oceans and water.

Humans can have a direct influence on albedo by deforestation for harvesting wood and other products, clearing forests and land for agriculture and clearing land for cities and other inhabitant structures. So in addition to the proposed theory that increased greenhouse gasses add to global warming, humankind use of land is also a factor due to the decrease in albedo.

Albedo can be positive climate feedback with regard to snow and ice cover. In other words, if the globe warms, snow and ice will melt which results in lower albedo which enhances further warming. The main question is how much this effect is in comparison to other other climate feedbacks. other albedo feedbacks (some negative) and other climate factors in general. It appears to be a relatively small effect.
