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.

#3 Protect against increasing energy expenses

One of the most clear cut benefits of photovoltaic panels is the capability to hedge utility prices. In the previous 10 years, property electricity costs have actually gone up by an average of 3 percent each year.

#5 Increase U.S. energy self-reliance

Lots of property owners pick to finance their photovoltaic panels with one of the "pay-as-you-go" financing alternatives. This suggests that a third-party company-- the solar service provider-- owns the solar system and looks after installation, upkeep, monitoring and repairs.

Architecture And Solar Panels?????????????
Can Someone Explain To Me How Solar Panels Can Be Used As Modern Architectural Attributes? Please Help

You could check out "building integrated photovoltaics" (BIPV). BIPV includes things like solar roof tiles and smart energy glass that acts as a window and also creates electricity. BIPV is a great way for people to go solar without disrupting the "modern architectural attributes" of an existing structure.

What Is The Cost Of A Solar Panel
I Am Going To Be Building Green In The Next Couple Of Years And I Need An Idea Of How Many Solar Panels I Need In Addition To A Wind Turbine To Sufficiently Handle A Workshop, House, Green House, Etc. And What The Approximate Cost Will Be.

Photovoltaic solar panels are priced by the watt. Average price today is just under $4.00 per watt. More efficient panels take less space to produce the same amount of electricity. To design a system, you first must decide how much power you are looking to produce. then you look at the various products to find what fits your need. if you have a very compact space, you may pay more for more per watt for really efficient panels, but if you have a good amount of space you can get lower cost panels that take more space and cost less. With a wind turbine complimenting your system you will only need a modest battery storage bank. 15kw system could get you off grid entirely! 15,000 watts x $4.00 = $60,000. 3kw system with net metering mat cost about $12,000. Many homeowners (like me) build their systems piecemeal to keep costs manageable. Good Luck!

P.S. - If you build it with the house, the price can be rolled into the mortgage. $60,000 would add +/- $300.00 a month to your payment, but you would have no Electric bill, a savings of $100-200 a month. Once it is paid for, you only have to pay maintenance costs.
