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 daily life: running your a/c, washing clothing, enjoying TV, cooking dinner. All while decreasing your carbon footprint, and without burning fossil fuels or putting a pressure on the electrical grid. And while the ecological advantages of solar power are significant, numerous residents find that the benefit, unique functions, and expense savings of owning a solar power system are much more attractive.

Top 10 Advantages of Solar Energy

#1 Significantly decrease and even eliminate your electric bills

Whether you're a property owner, service, or nonprofit, electrical power expenses can make up a big part of your monthly expenses. With a photovoltaic panel system, you'll create totally free power for your system's whole 25+ year lifecycle. Even if you don't produce 100 percent of the energy you consume, solar will decrease your energy bills 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're one of the very best ways to invest, with returns measuring up to those of more traditional investments like stocks and bonds. Thanks to substantial electrical energy expense savings, the typical American property owner pays off their solar panel system in 7 to 8 years and sees an ROI of 20 percent or more.

#3 Secure against rising energy expenses

Among the most clear cut benefits of solar panels is the ability to hedge utility prices. In the past 10 years, residential electrical energy rates have increased by approximately 3 percent every year. By investing in a solar energy system now, you can repair your electrical energy rate and safeguard against unpredictable increases in electricity costs. If you're a service or property owner with fluctuating capital, going solar also helps you better forecast and handle your expenses.

#4 Boost your home or business value

Multiple research studies have found that homes geared up with solar energy systems have higher home values and sell quicker than non-solar homes. Appraisers are significantly taking solar installations into factor to consider as they value homes at the time of a sale, and as property buyers become more educated about solar, demand for properties geared up with solar panel systems will continue to grow.

#5 Increase U.S. energy independence

The sun is a near-infinite source of energy and a key element of achieving energy independence in the United States. By increasing our capacity to create electrical energy from the sun, we can also insulate our nation from cost variations in global energy markets.

#6 Develop jobs and assist your local economy

Inning accordance with The Solar Structure, the solar market added tasks at a rate nearly 12 times faster than the general U.S. economy in 2015, representing 1.2 percent of all jobs in the nation. This development is expected to continue. Because solar-related jobs tend to be greater paying and can not be outsourced, they are a substantial contributor to the U.S. economy.

#7 Secure the environment

Solar is a great way to reduce your carbon footprint. Buildings are accountable for 38 percent of all carbon emissions in the U.S., and going solar can considerably reduce that number. A normal residential solar panel system will eliminate three to 4 lots of carbon emissions each year-- the equivalent of planting over 100 trees annually.

#8 Demonstrate your dedication to sustainability

Sustainability and business social duty are essential elements of a company's culture and worths. They also produce bottom line outcomes. Increasingly, consumers and neighborhoods are recognizing and rewarding businesses that decide to operate responsibly. Companies are discovering that "green" credentials are a powerful driver of consumer acquiring decisions, developing goodwill and enhancing business results.

#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.

Numerous property owners decide to fund their photovoltaic panels with among the "pay-as-you-go" financing options. This suggests that a third-party business-- the solar provider-- owns the solar system and looks after setup, maintenance, monitoring and repairs. You merely pay the solar provider for electricity-- 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 companies are infamous for their fluctuating and unreliable electricity rates. There is plainly an upward trend.

With solar panels and easy math, we can determine how much electrical power will be created, and most significantly, at exactly what price, for a minimum of the next 20 years (repaired energy costs).

Frequently Asked Questions

Building Solar Panel What Is The Most Effective One And Chippest?
Hi , I Am From Argentina. The Prostitue We Have As A President Dediced To Get Electricity Bill 400 % Higher. So, What Is A Good Way To Start Getting Everything With Solar Energy, I Have Seem Somebody Doing A Solar Panel With Black Painted Cans Of Soda. What Other Alternatives Do I Have. Thanks

Javier, those black painted cans were most likely for a passive collector to get heat from the sun. This is one way of using solar energy. This leads into a vast array of applications. There are units that reflect the sun light into a narrow beam that is a few millimeters thick, but is as long as the reflector is with the light focused on a pipe that carries water, or some other working fluid to where the heated fluid is to be used. If done properly, and safely, you could make water into steam to drive a turbine to make electricity. That, however, requires tracking systems to keep the reflectors pointed at the sun. The best way, least expensive of any, but still will be expensive to set up, is photo=voltiac panels. These absorb sunlight and turn it into electricity. These should be used to charge batteries for the time when the sun is not out, or at night. Within practical limits, your battery bank can not be to big. Trying to make your own photo-voltiac panels is out of the question. Those silican wafers from which the electricity producing panels are made require special manufacturing processes, which unless you are extremely rich, are beyond your means. You will need to buy such panels, and yes, they are expensive. That is out weighed by how long they will last, which barring physical damage, or a high enough reverse voltage applied to them, those panels should last for 20 or more years. Good luck with what you want to do. Begin small and work up to a large system, as large as you need it to be.

I Want To Use Solar Energy In My Workshop Which Has Some Welding Machines.What Type Of Solar Panels Do I Use?

You want a grid tie solar power system being you already have the grid or you could not use the welders right now.

The idea is back feed the grid. You would want to balance out your power usage with solar. You do not have to be able to run every thing in your shop with solar. You run everything from the local utility and allow the solar no matter how large or small to offset the power usage. If you are not using much power the solar will supply all your needs and the extra will turn your meter backwards saving you a little money. Plus that makes anyone on the utility grid use solar power because you are feeding it into the system.

Increasing The Efficiency Of Solar Panels Using Concave Mirrors - Is It A Good Project?
Is It Good Enought To Try To Compete In Isweeep? What About : Cleaning Sitnica River (River In My Country) Using Ferronickel Slag ? Is Any Of Them Good Enough ?

What is "good enough" can be a challenge. The International Sustainable World Energy, Engineering, and Environment Project (Isweeep) With the new catagory of health and disease prevention and an emphasis of being proud of where you come from cleaning a river in Kosovo seems like it may be a better project than using concave mirrors which has already received extensive research attention.

You would have to describe the defects in the water, typical methods to clean up biological and mineral contaminants, and a comparison between your solution and other alternatives.

I Want To Provide Solar Power And Heated Water To A 1500Sqft Home For A Family Of 4, What Do I Need?
If Building From Scratch What Components Do I Need And How Much Would It Cost?

You'll need to determine how much electricity you will ever need. Will you expect to do some heating? If you're using electric then you'll need to factor that into the size as well. Also, if you're not planning on connecting to the electric grid, then you'll need to determine how much energy you'll need for several cloudy days in a row - and size your system so that you can make that much energy in one sunny day.

Once you have the size of the system you'll need, you can figure on paying between $7 and $10 per watt for the solar system - not including batteries. The components you'll need will be solar electric panels and connectors. You'll need an inverter if you're planning on wiring your house for AC power. If you're going off grid, you'll likely want to look at DC appliances and save on inverter costs.

I've done a quick calc below, just for kicks.


National average household electric use was about 10,500 kWh in 2001. Let's assume that you'll be really energy efficient in your choice of appliances and knock that back to 8000 kWh per year.

Let's also assume, just for kicks, that this electric use will be evenly consumed over the whole year. That means you'll use about 22 kWh per day. This is certainly not true, but it at least gives us a starting point for our costing.

You'll be able to harvest solar power for a maximum of about 5 hours per day, on average (a bit more or less, depending on where you live). So you'll need at least 4400 watts of solar power. At a cost of $7 per watt, that means you'll be paying roughly $30,000, not including batteries, to set up your system.

For comparison, to purchase 10,500 kWh of electricity from the utility, at a price of perhaps 12 cents per kWh, you'd pay $1300 per year in electric costs.

I know that all these costs are wrong, but sometimes it is helpful to get an idea of the relative cost and savings of different options, just so you understand what you're dealing with. Your system will NOT cost less than $30,000, probably quite a bit more. You will almost certainly not pay MORE than $1300 per year in electric costs if you choose not to install the solar system.

If, with all this said, you are still interested in a solar system, then I would find a local vendor and start getting some sizing and costing information from them. Two good resources for finding local vendors of solar systems are below

Hope this helped.

What Is The Most Efficient Way Of Making Electricity?
To Make Electricity In Most Efficient. Solar Panels Take Very Less From Sunlight. And So I Need More Efficient.

If by efficiency you mean (electrical energy output) / (basic resource energy input) then hydro power must be at or near the top of the list.
