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 resident to utilize the sun to power everyday life: running your air conditioner, cleaning clothing, viewing TELEVISION, cooking supper. All while lowering your carbon footprint, and without burning nonrenewable fuel sources or putting a pressure on the electrical grid. And while the environmental advantages of solar power are significant, numerous homeowners find that the benefit, distinct features, and expense savings of owning a solar power system are a lot more enticing.

Leading Advantages of Solar Energy

#1 Significantly decrease or perhaps eliminate your electric costs

Whether you're a property owner, service, or nonprofit, electrical energy costs can make up a large part of your regular monthly expenses. With a photovoltaic panel system, you'll generate totally free 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 reduce your utility costs and you'll still conserve a great deal of loan.

#2 Make a great return on your investment

Photovoltaic panels aren't an expenditure-- they are among the best methods to invest, with returns measuring up to those of more traditional financial investments like stocks and bonds. Thanks to substantial electricity bill cost savings, the average American house owner pays off their solar panel system in 7 to eight years and sees an ROI of 20 percent or more.

#3 Protect versus increasing energy expenses

Among the most clear cut benefits of solar panels is the capability to hedge utility rates. In the past 10 years, domestic electrical power rates have increased by approximately three percent yearly. By purchasing a solar energy system now, you can fix your electricity rate and secure against unpredictable boosts in electrical energy costs. If you're a service or property owner with rising and falling money flow, going solar likewise helps you much better forecast and handle your expenditures.

#4 Increase your property worth

Numerous studies have found that houses geared up with solar energy systems have greater property worths and sell faster than non-solar houses. Appraisers are increasingly taking solar setups into consideration as they value homes at the time of a sale, and as property buyers become more informed about solar, need for residential or commercial properties equipped with solar 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 element of attaining energy independence in the United States. By increasing our capacity to create electrical energy from the sun, we can also insulate our country from rate variations in international energy markets.

#6 Develop jobs and help your regional economy

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

#7 Safeguard the environment

Solar is a fantastic way to minimize your carbon footprint. Buildings are accountable for 38 percent of all carbon emissions in the U.S., and going solar can significantly reduce that number. A typical domestic photovoltaic panel system will eliminate 3 to 4 tons of carbon emissions each year-- the equivalent of planting over 100 trees every year.

#8 Show your dedication to sustainability

Sustainability and business social responsibility are necessary parts of an organization's culture and worths. They also produce bottom line results. Significantly, customers and neighborhoods are acknowledging and rewarding businesses that decide to operate responsibly. Businesses are finding that "green" credentials are an effective motorist of consumer buying choices, developing goodwill and enhancing company results.

#9 Start Conserving from Day 1

Solar purchase power contracts (PPAs) and solar leasing has made it possible for property owners to go solar for little or no loan down.

Many homeowners decide to fund their photovoltaic panels with among the "pay-as-you-go" financing choices. This means that a third-party business-- the solar provider-- owns the planetary system and looks after setup, upkeep, tracking and repairs. You simply pay the solar supplier for electrical energy-- less than you would've paid the utility company.

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

#10. Solar is a Secure Financial investment

The utility business are well-known for their varying and unreliable electrical energy rates. There is clearly an upward trend.

With photovoltaic panels and simple mathematics, we can determine what does it cost? electrical power will be created, and most importantly, at what cost, for at least the next 20 years (repaired energy expenses).

Financing

What are the various payment options?

We have many flexible purchasing agreements for customers who would like to install a new home solar system. There are three different payment options, making them a viable choice for customers of all budgets. The payment options include Lease, PPA, and Purchase.

  • Flexible end-of-term options, including system upgrade, lease extension, and free panel removal

Power Purchase Agreement (PPA)

  • We own the solar panel system
  • $0 down for installation
  • Customers only pay for the solar energy that they use

Purchase

  • Customer pays for the system upfront and owns the system
  • System monitoring and maintenance for 20 years
  • Receive 30% federal tax credit
  • See a return on investment within 7-10 years

What happens when the contract for my lease is finished?

We provide our customers with a few different options for when their lease contract is up. Customers can upgrade their equipment to the newest solar technology available, extend the agreement, or have the panels removed at no cost.

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

How Many Solar Panels Would I Need To Run A 5000 Watt Inverter For My House Trailor?

I'm assuming your plan is to have batteries?

It really depends on how much energy you use, not on the size of the inverter. With a 5000 watt inverter, if all you do is run a couple LED lights and a laptop at night, your energy usage will be low. On the other hand, if you run electric heat, a stove, and a refrigerator, your energy needs will be much greater. If the trailer is now connected to the grid, try looking at your bill for the number of kilowatt-hours (kWh) used in the last month. Then post another question here, including that monthly usage, and your location (city and state). People can then give you an estimate.

Do understand that it is almost always more expensive to have standalone solar instead of grid electricity. The kind of solar that saves money is the kind without batteries, for a permanent location connected to the grid. That's the kind almost everyone puts on their houses when they do get solar.

I Would Like To Know Your Outlook On Renewable Energy In The Urban Environment.?
I Know That Everyone In America Has Pretty Much Heard Of The Infamous Renewable Power Vs. Fossil Fuel Debate. Most People Realize That Oil And Other Fossil Fuels Are Vastly Being Depleted Through The Many Different Machines That Require Fossil Fuels To Run. But What Most People Don'T Understand Is That This Energy Source Is Very Limited. So Much In Fact That In The Next 50 Years, Globally, We Are Expected To Run Out Completely. To Make Matters Worse, The Human Population Is Expected To Skyrocket To Nearly 10 Billion In The Coming Decades. Now I Don'T Know About You, But To Me This Means We Need To Be More Effective And Focus On More Specific Targets With Power. I Believe Urban Power Efficiency Will Become One Of The Top Priorities In The Future. With The Expanding Cities Can Only Mean More Power Usage And More Pollution. Reducing This Increase Of Pollution Sits At The Top Of Switching To Clean Power. Another Driving Force Is The Demand For More Energy. It Is Quite Evident That The More People, The Higher The Demand For Energy. We Need An Exponentially Increasing Amount Of Resources To Compensate For The Population Increase. Lastly, Sustainability Is A Major Issue That Needs To Be Incorporated Into Any Future Power Plans. This Subject Includes A Whole Array Of Sub Points Such As Cost Effectiveness And Ecological Footprints. Some Energy Systems Are Noticeably Cheaper Than Others But Have More Detrimental Effects On The Environment. The Limiting Factor Here Is, When Does The Health Of Nature Overcome The Expenses Of Energy? It Is Only A Matter Of Time Before Engineers, Scientists, And The Human Population Finally Integrate Urban Design Into Every Corner Of Their Lifestyles. It All Comes Down To, Is It Worth It? Do The Ends Justify The Means? Do We Shift Our Energy Systems To Uncertain Renewable Energy, Or Keep Our Trustworthy Fossil Fuels?

I think the first step is to start using energy efficiently. there are so many ways in which people (ESPECIALLY Americans) can reduce energy usage. this would lower our energy needs exceptionally in the future.
I think that renewable sources of energy are fantastic ideas but the current political and social climate is not doing them any favors. Either people are adverse to them, or they are pushed into market before they are ready. I think they need to emerge naturally, rather than trying to implement unproven technologies, which often damages their reputations.
I think the first step to energy sustainability is to use less, as i said. Nuclear energy is a good modern alternative which while not renewable, doesnt pollute that much. the days of chernobyl are behind us. its a safe technology, as is the storing of the wastes until we have something to do with them. The most immediate renewable source i think is wind which has already been implemented (in my opinion too fast.) Hydroelectricity has already been implemented to its maximum i think so that really isnt an option. I think once solar cells become mainstream and technology gives them the practicality and price to be usable they are going to power our long term future.
as for cars, I think hydrogen/electric is the clear Utopian goal but for now biofuels (NOT CORN BASED ETHANOL, that was just a bad idea) will supplant some fossil fuels. I think that this option should stay around for people like me who enjoy our cars, its a clean alternative and provides all the thrills if not more than a fossil fuel powered engine.

Some Easy Environmental Questions?
Is A Natural Gas Plant More Environmentally Friendly Than A Coal Plant? What Other Energy Options Out There That Are Better Than Wind Turbines Is It A Case Of Where You Think A Power Plant Is Rather Than Its Location?

There are many sites out there that compare and constrast gas versus coal. This is just one of them:
http://www.global-greenhouse-warming.com...

'Better' is always a relative word. Wind turbines have some advantages, solar has others, geothermal is great -- and here on the East Coast of the US, we are even looking at tide and/or wave generators. Which is 'best'? Depends on what you use to compare.

Solar Energy Again: Will This Kill My Batteries?
Ok,I Have Two Panels, 165W Each, 24.2 V I Have Them Connected In Parallel To Two 6V Connected In Series And A 12V Thats Connected In Parallel Vith The 6 V Ones...If I Connect The Panels In Series Will This Kill The Batteries Or Will It It Give It More Charge? I'M Experimenting With Solar Energy :) And Loving It1 Thanks For Your Time And Help.

What you are doing is DANGEROUS, you should study much more before experimenting with batteries and any others power sources.

Hint: get the book "The Solar Electric House"

Regarding you question, it is not definitely a good idea to connect in parallel a 12 volts power supply with a 24 volts power supply.

In any case, normally solar panels are not connected directly to batteries, it is usually to use a "battery charger" which is a device that makes suitable the voltage and the current to the battery.

What Other Ways Are There To Create Energy Without Using Fossil Fuels And Minerals?
Some Of The Ways I Know How To Save Energy Are: Land Fill Gases Used For Energy Wind Power Solar Power Wave Energy Are There Any Others? What Are They?

I think biofuels could be an effective way to produce energy...but not the kind derived from corn (which actually has a net energy production of zero, considering the energy needed to plant, harvest, fertilize, etc. outweighs the energy of the produced ethanol). I'm talking about using either a) food/organic waste (which can be decomposed in anoxic conditions to produce methane via bacterial decay, much like landfill gas), or by using algae, which can essentially grow in a slimy brine pit if needed, or in the ocean, and actually would be carbon-neutral (since the carbon released in combustion was already removed by them in growth).

Essentially anything that contains heat, moves, contains high energy chemical bonds, etc., can theoretically be harnessed to produce energy. For example, your body heat, the heat of the Earth [geothermal], nuclear fission reactions which produce heat as a byproduct, or solar heating, which involves heat absorbed via sunlight, are all thermal sources of energy. Things that move, which have kinetic energy, are the wind, tides in the ocean, waterfalls, etc. Things that can be burned/oxidized, such as fossil fuels and the sugars we eat every day to keep us alive, also contain energy. This is only a small sample of things that could be used, if you use your imagination.

From physics, energy is neither created nor destroyed, but simply transferred from one form to another...the problem is in harnessing the energy as it changes forms (efficiency). Any of the above forms of energy can ultimately be turned into electricity through motors or generators (which convert energies into useful forms, like electricity).

By the way, landfill gas is essentially methane, and is actually a hydrocarbon (like fossil fuels) that is only carbon neutral if the material being decomposed in the landfill recently extracted CO2 from the atmosphere (i.e. not a fossil fuel).
