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 use the sun to power daily life: running your air conditioner, washing clothes, viewing TV, cooking supper. All while decreasing your carbon footprint, and without burning nonrenewable fuel sources or putting a stress on the electrical grid. And while the environmental advantages of solar power are substantial, numerous home owners discover that the convenience, unique features, and expense savings of owning a solar power system are even more enticing.

Leading Advantages of Solar Energy

#1 Drastically lower or perhaps remove your electric expenses

Whether you're a house owner, business, or not-for-profit, electrical energy expenses can comprise a large portion of your month-to-month expenditures. With a solar panel system, you'll generate complimentary 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 utility bills and you'll still save a great deal of money.

#2 Earn a great return on your financial investment

Photovoltaic panels aren't an expense-- they're one of the very best methods to invest, with returns equaling those of more standard investments like stocks and bonds. Thanks to considerable 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 versus increasing energy expenses

One of the most clear cut advantages of photovoltaic panels is the ability to hedge energy rates. In the previous ten years, property electricity costs have actually gone up by an average of three percent each year. By investing in a solar energy system now, you can repair your electrical energy rate and protect versus unforeseeable increases in electrical power expenses. If you're a company or property owner with fluctuating money flow, going solar likewise assists you better forecast and manage your expenditures.

#4 Increase your home worth

Multiple research studies have found that homes geared up with solar energy systems have greater residential or commercial property values and sell more rapidly 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 homebuyers end up being more educated about solar, demand 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 an essential part of achieving energy independence in the United States. By increasing our capacity to produce electricity from the sun, we can likewise insulate our country from rate changes in international energy markets.

#6 Create jobs and help your regional economy

According to The Solar Structure, the solar industry included jobs at a rate nearly 12 times faster than the general U.S. economy in 2015, representing 1.2 percent of all jobs in the country. This development is expected to continue. Due to the fact that solar-related tasks tend to be higher paying and can not be outsourced, they are a substantial contributor to the United States economy.

#7 Protect the environment

Solar is a fantastic method to reduce your carbon footprint. Structures are accountable for 38 percent of all carbon emissions in the U.S., and going solar can considerably decrease that number. A typical property photovoltaic panel system will get rid of 3 to four tons of carbon emissions each year-- the equivalent of planting over 100 trees every year.

Increasingly, customers and communities are recognizing and rewarding companies that opt to operate properly. Services are finding that "green" credentials are an effective chauffeur of consumer buying choices, creating goodwill and improving service results.

#9 Start Saving from Day 1

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

Lots of property owners decide to fund their photovoltaic panels with among the "pay-as-you-go" financing options. This implies that a third-party business-- the solar company-- owns the planetary system and looks after setup, upkeep, monitoring and repairs. You just pay the solar provider for electrical power-- less than you would've paid the utility company.

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

#10. Solar is a Secure Investment

The utility business are notorious for their fluctuating and undependable electrical energy costs. There is clearly an upward pattern.

With photovoltaic panels and basic mathematics, we can compute what does it cost? electricity will be generated, and most notably, at exactly what rate, for a minimum of the next 20 years (fixed energy costs).

Frequently Asked Questions

What Are The Advantages And Disadvantagesof Using Solar Power?
Mainly What Are The Plus/Minuses Of Solar Thermal Dishes But Any Information You Have On Solar Power Would Be A Great Help! Thanks, 10 Points Best Answer!

* Advantages
- Solar energy is a renewable resource. Oil, on the other hand, is not renewable
- Solar cells are totally silent. This is in comparison to the noise generated by drills, turbines and pumps for oil
- Solar energy is non-polluting. Solar power creates no air pollution, greenhouse gases, or radioactive nuclear wastes
- Solar cells require very little maintenance (they have no moving parts that will need to be fixed), and they last a long time.
- Although solar panels or solar lights, etc., may be expensive to buy at the onset, you can save money in the long run. After all, you do not have to pay for energy from the sun. On the other hand, all of us are aware of the rising cost of oil.
- Solar powered lights and other solar powered products are also very easy to install. You do not even need to worry about wires.
- Solar panels can be used to run small vehicles
- Sun light is a free energy source

* Limitations
- Solar cells/panels, etc. can be very expensive initially
- Solar power cannot be created at night. It must be collected during the day and stored for later use.
- Solar power is still developing and in a state of continuous improvement
- To provide large scale amounts of energy huge areas of panels would be required

Im In Debate And We Are Talking About Solar Energy. If You Have Info On Solar Energy It Would Be Great!! Please Give Your Sourse So That I Can Use Them In My Spech!

points

-Solar energy is expensive: it would cost me about $30,000 to outfit my home with solar cells that could provide my electricity and this wouldn't provide for my summer air conditioner.

-Solar energy is not generally accepted by the public: try getting a home owners association to allow you to put solar panels on the roof of you home.

-Solar energy is very poorly understood, even by those selling it: I was at a recent solar energy fair in Columbia Missouri and folks behind the counter of a group pushing green energy told me that I could mount a small wind generator on my roof ( about 35 ft. above the ground) and recoup all my costs in under 10 years. A lecture at the same fair later that afternoon by a professional installer pointed out that there are very few locations in Mo. that are viable and those that are need a large generator on a 100 ft. tall tower to recoup the costs in 15 years.

-Solar hot water systems take a fair amount of yearly maintenance: my hot water collectors require at least 8 hours of yearly maintenance my me, some of it on top of my 2 story roof, figure a solar service man would charge me $50 per hour and it exceeds what my yearly propane bill would be to heat my water it in a standard water heater.

-People keep trying to get the government to pay for it: if something is truly worth the money people will purchase it. If the government must subsidize something then it is not self sustaining and should be allowed to die a natural economic death.

How Solar Energy Works?
When Is It Used With Water (Steam)?? When Is It Not Used With Steam?? I Saw Videos On Youtube, Were Electricity Is Created Directly From The Sun Without Steam Http://Www.Youtube.Com/Watch?V=X4ctceusk9i&Feature=Related Http://Www.Youtube.Com/Watch?V=7Oacv7k8qc0 Is This Another Type Of Solar Energy?? Can U Explain The Difference?? Can U Give Videos Or Any Kind Of Sources?? I Really Appreciate It

To generate steam from sunlight, you need lenses or mirrors to concentrate the light. The mirrors or lenses are motorized to follow the sun during the day. Solar energy can also heat water without turning it into steam.
Electricity is generated directly from sunlight with photovoltaic cells, also known as solar cells. You've probably seen calculators that run on solar cells.

Prices Are Rising, The Worth Of A Dollar Is Falling, The Economy Is Pretty Edgy Right Now. Why Not Stand Up?
As All Of You Know, The Price Of Gas Is Pretty High. While I Don'T Mean To Complain, Other Countries Do Have It Worse, But It'S Ridiculous. How Come We Don'T Pull Together And Try And Make This Work? There Are Many Alternative Energies Out There, But The Most Independent Source Of Earthly Materials Is Solar. What Are Your Ideas On Solar Energy? Don'T You Think It Would Benefit The World In Good Ways (Pollution, Money, Etc.)? We'Re All Depending Too Much On The Ground Beneath Our Feet And It Seems Like It Costs Too Much To Depend On It Anymore. What About Boycotts? If We Continue This Way, All The Large Businesses And/Or Governments Could Make A Negative Impact On The Way We Live (Eg., The Great Depression Of The 1920'S). So Ponder A Bit, What Exactly Can We Do? Who'S Even Willing To Help The Country Recover Before It'S Too Late And We Drop Into Recession? Things Aren'T So Bad Now, But Look At The Facts And Stats Of The Last Few Years... What Do You Have To Say?

Alternative energy sources are still extremely inefficient and do not generate enough energy for all of our nation's needs. This is to be expected when you consider that the technology relatively new compared to the burning of fossil fuels. Right now, we can use these sources to supplement our electricity use, but it isn't good enough right now to fully supplant it.

You talk about a boycott, but the question is, a boycott of what? Electricity? Using our cars? When the prices go too high, that's what we'll need to do anyways. When that happens, businesses will lower prices to meet the lower demand. This is called price-seeking behavior, and that's exactly what the market's going through right now.

Yes, this is not pleasant...it means we'll be paying higher prices for our current standard of living. In the United States, our standard of living is extremely high. Now the price is catching up to our habits. It was fun while it lasted, but now we have to adjust our lifestyles accordingly. It sucks, but isn't a disaster scenario by any means.

Solar Energy?
How Do Plants Compare To Solar Cells Specifically, When It Comes To Collecting The Sun'S Radiat Energy (Photons)??

Solar cells (PV) are much more efficient than the average vascular plant.

Example:  Maize produces about 150 bushels (8400 lb, about 3.8 metric tons) of grain per acre per year, and another 2 dry tons of leaves and stalks in excess of the requirement for erosion control.  The embodied energy in this (at 392,000 BTU/bushel for the grain and 17.4 GJ/ton for the other matter) is about 97 GJ/acre/year (sorry about the funny units, multiply by 2.47 to convert acres to hectares).

An acre in mid-Kansas receives about 1550 kWh of sunlight per year; at 15% conversion efficiency in a PV, that's 232.5 kWh (837 MJ)/m²/year.  Multiply by 4047 m²/acre, and you'd get 3.39 TJ/acre/year.
