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, cleaning clothes, watching TV, cooking dinner. All while reducing your carbon footprint, and without burning fossil fuels or putting a stress on the electrical grid. And while the environmental benefits of solar power are considerable, lots of residents discover that the benefit, special features, and cost savings of owning a solar power system are even more attractive.

Top 10 Advantages of Solar Energy

#1 Dramatically decrease and even remove your electrical bills

Whether you're a property owner, business, or not-for-profit, electrical energy costs can make up a big part of your regular monthly costs. With a solar panel system, you'll create free power for your system's whole 25+ year lifecycle. Even if you don't produce One Hundred Percent of the energy you take in, solar will lower your utility bills and you'll still conserve a great deal of money.

#2 Earn a fantastic return on your investment

Photovoltaic panels aren't an expense-- they are among the very best ways to invest, with returns equaling those of more standard investments like stocks and bonds. Thanks to significant electrical energy expense savings, the average American property owner pays off their photovoltaic panel system in seven to 8 years and sees an ROI of 20 percent or more.

#3 Protect against rising energy expenses

One of the most clear cut benefits of solar panels is the capability to hedge utility prices. In the past 10 years, property electricity prices have actually gone up by an average of three percent annually. By investing in a solar energy system now, you can fix your electricity rate and protect against unforeseeable increases in electricity costs. If you're an organisation or property owner with rising and falling capital, going solar also helps you better forecast and handle your costs.

#4 Boost your home value

Multiple studies have discovered that homes equipped with solar energy systems have higher home worths and offer quicker than non-solar homes. Appraisers are increasingly taking solar setups into consideration as they value homes at the time of a sale, and as property buyers become more educated about solar, demand for homes geared up with photovoltaic panel systems will continue to grow.

#5 Boost U.S. energy independence

The sun is a near-infinite source of energy and an essential part of achieving energy independence in the United States. By increasing our capability to produce electricity from the sun, we can likewise insulate our country from cost variations in worldwide energy markets.

#6 Develop jobs and help your local economy

According to 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 tasks in the nation. This growth is anticipated to continue. Due to the fact that solar-related tasks have the tendency to be higher paying and can not be contracted out, they are a substantial factor to the U.S. economy.

#7 Protect the environment

Solar is a great method to reduce your carbon footprint. Structures are responsible for 38 percent of all carbon emissions in the United States, and going solar can substantially decrease that number. A common property solar panel system will get rid of three to 4 lots of carbon emissions each year-- the equivalent of planting over 100 trees each year.

Sustainability and corporate social responsibility are essential parts of a company's culture and worths. They also produce bottom line outcomes. Significantly, customers and neighborhoods are acknowledging and rewarding services that pick to operate responsibly. Businesses are finding that "green" qualifications are a powerful chauffeur of customer getting decisions, producing goodwill and enhancing business outcomes.

#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.

Lots of homeowners opt to finance their solar panels with one of the "pay-as-you-go" financing choices. This means that a third-party company-- the solar provider-- owns the planetary system and takes care of installation, upkeep, tracking and repair works. You merely pay the solar provider for electricity-- less than you would've paid the energy company.

As of 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 well-known for their changing and undependable electricity rates. There is plainly an upward pattern.

With photovoltaic panels and easy mathematics, we can calculate how much electrical energy will be generated, and most importantly, at exactly what rate, for at least the next Twenty Years (repaired energy expenses).

Need Solar Panel Help?
How Does It Work? Is It The Hooter It Is The More Energy It Produce? Please Help. Thank You

Do you mean HOTTER?? HOOTERS have nothing to do with solar panels . . . . :-)

Heat has nothing to do with it. It is the amount of light (sunlight), not the heat. Solar panels work just as well in the cold. Even in space, like on the Space Station, where temperatures can be as low as 300 degrees F below zero.

Very simply put, the solar panels are made of a special chemical that responds to photons of light. When a light photon hits the chemical, it knocks an electron off an atom. When this happens to millions and million of atoms, this causes electron flow -- which is, of course, electricity.

Just like a battery, the solar panels must be hooked "in series" with what ever you are wanting to power. So the electrons flow right around the circut and back into the solar cell, where they go back into place and wait for the next photon of light.

VERY SIMPLE, first-grade explanation of a photo-chemical process that is far too difficult to explain othewise.

There are also solar water heating panels that some people use on their homes. In this case the sunlight is focused onto a tube containing a "volatile" liquid, like an alcohol. The focused light heats up the tube (like a magnifying glass), and the heat goes into the alcohol.

These tubes flow down to the water heater in the garage, where the heat is transferred to the water. The cooled alcohol is pumped back to the roof to cycle again.

While this directly uses heat energy, it comes from the focused light, so these will still work on a cold day, so long as the alcohol doesn't freeze.

Economics Of Solar Power?
Is Solar Going To Become An Affordable Alternative Soon? How Cheap Does It Need To Get? Is It Typically Calculated As Cost Per Watt, Or? How Much Electic Does The Typical Home Use? Any Insight Would Be Apreciated.

solar power is still a new technology. companies that are pursuing it aggressively are for the most part small and arent selling a large volume. low sales means the company must have a high profit margin to survive, this translates into high prices for the equipment. when other forms of energy become to expensive more people will turn to solar allowing the manufacturers to invest in more efficient processes allowing them to charge less for their product. copper is also very expensive at the moment. (used in high quality solar panels)

how cheap? i have no idea. maybe the price of coal needs to get higher! LOL

Can Any One Direct Me To A Web Site That Tells You How To Install Solar Panels On My Home Correctly?
I'M Looking For Instructions To Install Solar Panels. I Have A Place To Buy All The Panels And Inverters.. I Just Need More Detail On The Different Ways To Hook It Up. How Much Power Needed, Etc.

That information should come with the panels. Is there a brand name? (At this point I assume you are buying used equipment.) Go to google.com and type the brand name into the box and see what you get. If that doesn't do it then you need to find someone who happens to know how to do it.
