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 everyday life: running your air conditioning unit, washing clothing, 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 ecological benefits of solar power are significant, many property owners discover that the benefit, unique features, and expense savings of owning a solar power system are even more attractive.

Top 10 Advantages of Solar Energy

#1 Dramatically reduce or even remove your electrical costs

Whether you're a house owner, company, or nonprofit, electrical power costs can make up a large part of your month-to-month expenditures. With a photovoltaic panel system, you'll generate free power for your system's whole 25+ year lifecycle. Even if you do not produce One Hundred Percent of the energy you take in, solar will reduce your energy expenses and you'll still conserve a lot of loan.

#2 Make a terrific return on your financial investment

Solar panels aren't a cost-- they are among the very best methods to invest, with returns equaling those of more traditional investments like stocks and bonds. Thanks to substantial electrical power bill savings, the typical American property owner settles their solar panel system in seven to 8 years and sees an ROI of 20 percent or more.

#3 Protect against increasing energy costs

Among the most clear cut benefits of photovoltaic panels is the capability to hedge utility costs. In the previous 10 years, property electricity prices have gone up by an average of three percent yearly. By investing in a solar energy system now, you can repair your electrical energy rate and secure against unforeseeable increases in electrical energy costs. If you're an organisation or property owner with changing cash circulation, going solar also helps you better forecast and manage your costs.

#4 Boost your home worth

Several studies have discovered that houses equipped with solar energy systems have greater property values and offer faster than non-solar homes. Appraisers are increasingly taking solar setups into consideration as they value houses at the time of a sale, and as homebuyers end up being more educated about solar, need for 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 part of achieving energy self-reliance in the United States. By increasing our capacity to produce electrical energy from the sun, we can also insulate our country from rate fluctuations in international energy markets.

#6 Create jobs and help your local economy

According to The Solar Structure, the solar industry added tasks at a rate almost 12 times faster than the total U.S. economy in 2015, representing 1.2 percent of all tasks in the country. This growth is expected to continue. Because solar-related tasks tend to be higher paying and can not be contracted out, they are a significant contributor to the United States economy.

#7 Secure the environment

Solar is an excellent way to decrease your carbon footprint. Structures are accountable for 38 percent of all carbon emissions in the U.S., and going solar can significantly reduce that number. A normal domestic photovoltaic panel system will remove 3 to four lots of carbon emissions each year-- the equivalent of planting over 100 trees annually.

#8 Show your dedication to sustainability

Sustainability and business social responsibility are necessary components of an organization's culture and values. They also produce bottom line results. Significantly, customers and communities are acknowledging and rewarding businesses that select to operate properly. Organisations are finding that "green" qualifications are a powerful motorist of consumer acquiring choices, developing goodwill and improving organisation outcomes.

#9 Start Conserving from Day 1

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

Numerous house owners decide to fund their photovoltaic panels with among the "pay-as-you-go" financing alternatives. This implies that a third-party company-- the solar company-- owns the planetary system and looks after installation, upkeep, monitoring and repair works. You merely pay the solar service provider for electrical energy-- less than you would've paid the utility business.

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

#10. Solar is a Secure Financial investment

The utility companies are infamous for their varying and undependable electrical power rates. There is plainly an upward trend.

With solar panels and easy mathematics, we can determine just how much electrical energy will be generated, and most importantly, at what price, for at least the next 20 years (repaired energy costs).

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.

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

Why Don'T They Try Liquid Mirror For Solar Energy?
A Huge 100M Liquid Mirror Would Collect So Much Energy That Would Be Focused To The Boiling Thing At Focal Point. That Thing Would Move During The Day To Be Always At The Focal Point. At 12H, The Collected Energy Would Be Awesome, This Wouldn'T Cost A Lot To Make...I Know It'S Not The Ultimate Solution For Solar Energy, But I Wonder Why They Don'T At Least Try It Once... **I Put The Question In This Section Cuz Its Where Most Knowledge Is...And Of Course That The Physic Section Is Just Full Of Students Asking To So Their Home Works...

OK here's a serious answer. Let's calculate how good this idea really is. The numbers come from Wikipedia, I know they aren't completely reliable, but they do make sense.

The sun's average distance from Earth is 1.496 x 10^11 m, so if we had a device on the surface of Earth with a diameter of 100 m like you said, if would capture a factor of
(pi 50^2) / (4 pi (1.496 x 10^11)^2) = 2.793 x 10^-20
of the sun's total energy output.

Luminosity of sun = 3.846 x 10^26 W
So the maximum amount of power potentially captured by your device is
3.846 x 10^26 W * 2.793 x 10^-20 = 10.74 MW

If you take the efficiency factor of power conversion into account, which is currently very low (<5%) for sunlight, you'd be getting less than a megawatt out of your enormous machine. In comparison, the Big Allis generator in New York generates nearly 1000 MW and is not much bigger than your mirror.

So the conclusion is: it would be great if there was something like that on top of each roof to supply a single house's energy needs. But it's not a practical idea for large-scale distribution.

Bc big oil doesn&#x27;t have its tentacles everywhere in china?

Just Saw Pickens New Commercial And.......?
Went To His Site To See What He's All About. Independent From What You Think About Agw; What Do You Think About His Plan? I Personally Liked What He Said, That When It Comes To The Debate Of Drilling Domestically He Believes We Should Drill, But That We Will Still Be Dependent On Foreign Oil. Because Of That We Are Going To Need To Develop New Technologies Such As Wind (What He Is Mainly Pushing), Solar, Natural Gas Etc. What I Mainly Got Is That We Need To Build A Bridge To Those New Technologies, And In Essence Have Domestic Oil Hold Us Over Until The New Tech Is Here In A More Economically Viable Way. So, Independently From What You May Believe When It Comes To Agw, What Do You Think About Pickens Plan, Drilling And How Much Do You Think The Government Should Get Involved In Business And Free Market?

We don't need to be completely energy independent. Trade makes us stronger and with a global economy it's a good thing.

Also, when Pickens says we are transfering wealth, he's lying and should know better. We are just trading. Admittedly we could provide for ourselves more and that's also good, but there's nothing wrong with buying energy overseas.

Unfortunately, wind only provides about 1% of our energy needs and those turbines are unreliable as well as dangerous to the environment. Did you see that one in Denmark that just exploded from strong winds? Search on Youtube for the video. It's incredible.

Drilling is part of the solution because we can't ever get away from oil. If we quit using it as a fuel for cars and planes, we'd still need billions of barrels just for all the plastics and asphalt we use. Not to mention clothing, cosmetics and medicines. Besides, we have trillions of barrels of untapped sources in the US. We just need the obstacles to be removed so we can get at it.

Note that Pickens is looking out for himself mostly. That's not a bad thing, but understand that when you listen to him talk. Also note that Pelosi is invested in his plan and that explains why she and most other Democrats are dead against drilling. Keeping gas prices high is beneficial to them.

Oh, and the reason the oil companies don't drill much on leased lands is because of the constant lawsuits from environmentalists. They are the real enemies of the environment and the economy. The oil companies are the only ones with solutions right now, so let's quit blaming them for high prices.

Remember, they only make 8 cents a gallon while the government makes at least 13 cents on every gallon sold. And the government doesn't have to invest in research and development. They just take the money and pass the blame.

So Nuclear is still a great solution, but don't forget that coal is very abundant and there are some very clean ways of getting energy from coal these days.

If There Are Solar Energy Panels, Is There Anything To Save Water?
I Know There Are Solar Energy Panels And Wind Turbines But Is There Anything For Water? Also, How Much Money Would You Save A Year If You Installed A Solar Panel And Wind Turbine? No Rude Comments.

to save water .here r some methods
Water-saving technology for the home includes:
Low-flow shower heads sometimes called energy-efficient shower heads as they also use less energy,
Low-flush toilets and composting toilets. These have a dramatic impact in the developed world, as conventional Western toilets use large volumes of water.
Dual flush toilets created by Caroma includes two buttons or handles to flush different levels of water. Dual flush toilets use up to 67% less water than conventional toilets.
Saline water (sea water) or rain water can be used for flushing toilets.
Faucet aerators, which break water flow into fine droplets to maintain "wetting effectiveness" while using less water. An additional benefit is that they reduce splashing while washing hands and dishes.
Wastewater reuse or recycling systems, allowing: Reuse of graywater for flushing toilets or watering gardens
Recycling of wastewater through purification at a water treatment plant. See also Wastewater - Reuse

Rainwater harvesting
High-efficiency clothes washers
Weather-based irrigation controllers
Garden hose nozzles that shut off water when it is not being used, instead of letting a hose run.
using low flow taps in wash basins
Automatic faucet is a water conservation faucet that eliminates water waste at the faucet. It automates the use of faucets without the use of hands.
A valve which reduces water, gas, time, money and CO2 known as a Combisave

Water can also be conserved by landscaping with native plants and by changing behavior, such as shortening showers and not running the faucet while brushing teeth.
