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

Thanks to significant electrical power expense cost savings, the typical American homeowner pays off their solar panel system in seven to 8 years and sees an ROI of 20 percent or more.

#3 Secure against increasing energy expenses

One of the most clear cut advantages of solar panels is the ability to hedge energy costs. In the previous 10 years, domestic electrical energy prices have actually increased by an average of 3 percent annually. By investing in a solar energy system now, you can repair your electricity rate and secure against unpredictable boosts in electrical energy costs. If you're a company or house owner with fluctuating money circulation, going solar likewise helps you better projection and manage your costs.

#4 Boost your home or business worth

Several studies have actually found that houses equipped with solar energy systems have greater property worths and offer more rapidly than non-solar homes. Appraisers are progressively taking solar setups into factor to consider as they value houses at the time of a sale, and as homebuyers end up being more informed about solar, demand for properties equipped with photovoltaic 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 part of attaining energy self-reliance in the United States. By increasing our capacity to produce electrical energy from the sun, we can likewise insulate our country from cost variations in worldwide energy markets.

#6 Create jobs and assist your regional economy

According to The Solar Foundation, the solar industry added jobs at a rate almost 12 times faster than the total 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 have the tendency to be greater paying and can not be outsourced, they are a significant contributor to the U.S. economy.

Lots of homeowners choose to finance their solar panels with one of the "pay-as-you-go" funding alternatives. This suggests that a third-party business-- the solar service provider-- owns the planetary system and takes care of setup, upkeep, tracking and repairs. You simply pay the solar supplier for electrical power-- less than you would've paid the energy company.

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

Frequently Asked Questions

How Do Solar Powered Garden Lamps Work?
We Have Just Bought A Pair Of Solar Garden Lamps ( Yesterday) And Have Had Them Outside All Day. It Hasn'T Been Sunny But Just Cloudy. The Lights Haven'T Come On. Just Noticed That They Have On/Off Switches. Are The Switches Just So That The Lights Work Off The Battery ? For The Solar Power To Charge The Lights Do I Need To Have Them On &Quot;Off&Quot; ? Or Will Having It Set To Off Mean That The Solar Power Won'T Work. Or Do The Lamps Just Need A Few Days Of Sunlight. So I Guess My Question Is, Do I Leave The Switch Set At On Or Off. The Lights Are Working Now That I Have Turned The Switch To On. But Is This Just The Battery And Not The Solar Power ? Confused :)

The little solar panel charges the battery during daylight, the brighter the sunlight and the longer the day the longer the light stays on at night. The on/off switch keeps the light off but the battery still charges. It's usually recommended that when first placing the lights in use you keep the switch to off to allow a full charge initially.

Why Do Solar Panels Burn Out?
What Makes Them Stop Working After A While?

You can search on "solar panel failure mechanisms" for scholarly works.

Amorphous silicon thin-film panels go through an annealing, and power drops off after a couple years. This includes most of those flexible rubber mat type panels. That's why those are not used on serious installations.

Serious panels intended for rooftop service generally come with a 25-year warranty, suggesting that the technology is more reliable than your washer, dryer, TV, computer, dishwasher, or water heater. One brand of panel had trouble about 10 years ago, but the manufacturer replaced all that were turned in, even paying shipping both ways. It was a problem with that particular model, not the technology.

Our polysilicon panels have been on the roof for 3 years, now, and I've seen no sign of wear, yet, either electrically or mechanically.

Diy Single Solar Panels With Outlets?
I Wanna Start Going Green, You Know Like Solar Panels, Wind Turbines, Etc. But Where I Live The Companies That Install The Free Solar Panels In Exchange For The Subsidiaries Aren'T Available. To Start Off I Was Just Looking For A Single Panel I Could Drill Into My Roof And Wire It To An Outlet Just For Small Thinks Like Charging My Phone And A Fan Maybe. If Anybody Can Understand My Crazy Idea Please Answer With Links To Where I Can Find These Things. Thanks!

That's not possible, unfortunately. Solar panels produce DC current, while most devices run on AC. Additionally, the voltage and wattage being output depends heavily on amount of sunlight and temperature, making it very ill-advised to attach sensitive electronic devices directly to a solar panel.

At the very least you would need to buy a solar panel and a Micro inverter, which would turn it into AC current, which should then be connected to your grid (don't try that yourself.)

Your other option would be to hook up a few solar panels to a battery bank to collect the energy before using it. Then you would need a small battery inverter to make the power usable by AC applications. Even then it's unlikely that your inverter's output power would be usable by your devices.

If you learn some more about solar energy and want to look at equipment prices, you can find all of these things at www.edisonsolarsales.com/store/ for cheap.

How To Make Electricity From The Sun Without Using Solar Panels?
Solar Panels Are Costly.Do You Know Any Inexpensive Way? So That I Can Make One Of My Own.

Solar things are always costly... You can use concave mirrors and concentrate the heat and heat what and then steam ll be formed and then steam directed to turbines, there you go generating electricity with out solar panels...

If Solar Panels Were Put On Every Rooftop Could That Power The World?
And If So What Are The Obstacles Preventing It (Ie Expnse). I Suppose It Would Be Without A Grid A Have Batteries?

Your question makes little sense > I suppose it would be without a grid a have batteries< Huh?

You can try to put solar on every roof, but in many cases, it is a waste of money.

If your roof does not have a south facing view (for those of us in the northern hemisphere)...

If your region is especially cloudy or rainy (some coastal areas, Seattle, etc)

If your roof is shaded by building or trees, it is a problem...

If your average temperature deviates a lot from 68F (higher or lower, the output goes down)

The problem is not NEARLY as simplistic as you and people here tend to think. All of these factors (and more that I have not even mentioned) effect the viability of doing this and the rate of return.
