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 use the sun to power everyday life: running your ac system, cleaning clothes, viewing TELEVISION, cooking supper. All while decreasing your carbon footprint, and without burning nonrenewable fuel sources or putting a stress on the electrical grid. And while the ecological advantages of solar power are substantial, lots of property owners find that the convenience, unique functions, and expense savings of owning a solar power system are a lot more alluring.

Leading Benefits of Solar Energy

#1 Drastically reduce or perhaps remove your electric expenses

Whether you're a house owner, organization, or nonprofit, electrical energy costs can comprise a big portion of your regular monthly expenses. With a photovoltaic panel system, you'll produce complimentary power for your system's whole 25+ year lifecycle. Even if you do not produce 100 percent of the energy you take in, solar will minimize your energy expenses and you'll still save a great deal of cash.

#2 Earn a terrific return on your investment

Photovoltaic panels aren't an expenditure-- they are among the finest methods to invest, with returns equaling those of more traditional investments like stocks and bonds. Thanks to significant electricity bill savings, the typical American homeowner settles their solar panel system in seven to 8 years and sees an ROI of 20 percent or more.

#3 Secure versus rising energy expenses

Among the most clear cut benefits of photovoltaic panels is the ability to hedge utility costs. In the previous 10 years, domestic electrical energy prices have gone up by approximately three percent every year. By investing in a solar energy system now, you can fix your electrical energy rate and safeguard versus unforeseeable increases in electrical energy expenses. If you're a company or house owner with ever-changing cash flow, going solar also assists you much better projection and handle your expenses.

#4 Increase your home value

Numerous studies have actually found that houses geared up with solar energy systems have greater residential or commercial property values and sell faster than non-solar homes. Appraisers are significantly taking solar installations into consideration as they value houses at the time of a sale, and as property buyers end up being more educated about solar, demand for properties equipped with solar panel systems will continue to grow.

#5 Increase U.S. energy independence

The sun is a near-infinite source of energy and a crucial component of achieving energy self-reliance in the United States. By increasing our capacity to produce electrical power from the sun, we can also insulate our nation from price changes in worldwide energy markets.

#6 Create jobs and help your regional economy

Inning accordance with The Solar Foundation, the solar industry included tasks at a rate almost 12 times faster than the general U.S. economy in 2015, representing 1.2 percent of all jobs in the nation. This development is anticipated to continue. Since solar-related tasks tend to be higher paying and can not be outsourced, they are a significant factor to the U.S. economy.

#7 Protect the environment

Solar is a terrific way to reduce your carbon footprint. Structures are responsible for 38 percent of all carbon emissions in the United States, and going solar can considerably reduce that number. A common 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 commitment to sustainability

Sustainability and corporate social responsibility are very important components of a company's culture and values. They likewise produce bottom line outcomes. Significantly, customers and neighborhoods are acknowledging and rewarding services that select to operate responsibly. Organisations are discovering that "green" credentials are a powerful chauffeur of consumer buying decisions, producing goodwill and enhancing company results.

#9 Start Saving from Day 1

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

Numerous house owners pick to finance their photovoltaic panels with one of the "pay-as-you-go" funding options. This implies that a third-party business-- the solar supplier-- owns the planetary system and takes care of setup, upkeep, monitoring and repair works. You merely pay the solar provider for electrical power-- less than you would've paid the utility company.

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

#10. Solar is a Secure Investment

The utility companies are notorious for their changing and unreliable electricity costs. There is plainly an upward trend.

With photovoltaic panels and easy mathematics, we can determine just how much electrical power will be produced, and most notably, at what cost, for a minimum of the next 20 years (repaired energy costs).

Frequently Asked Questions

How Does Alternative Energy Benefit The Economy And The Environment?
Please Explain For Both: Evironmental: And Economy: Thanks In Advance :)

Alternative energy can be good for the environment and the economy several ways. Common sources of energy, especially in the developing world are based on the burning of fossil fuels. The byproduct of this process is a high output of Carbon into the air. It's been discovered that such emissions are primary causes for acid rain as their are incorporated into the cycle of precipitation and evaporation in neighboring region. This is called a negative externalities as it generates a negative effect on the regions surrounding the source of emissions. This has effects on industries from agriculture and forestry to fishing. This is a basic example, and I'm sure you could find many case-specific examples if you spent the time doing the research.
Alternative sources of energy like geothermal power, wind power, hydro power and solar power open the door to a whole new phase of expansion in the energy sector. Thousands of jobs can be created to thus help the economy. Energy trading between countries is one of the most profitable traded commodities, and generating energy through renewable (free) resources like wind and the sun can only be a positive if they increase the amount of energy available to be consumed and used.
Everything from appliances to cars require energy and as developing nations around the world become more advanced, the need for energy will only increase.
Essays can be written on this with many more examples.

What Has Renewable Energy Done For Us In The Past?
Sociology

Over usuage of renewable energy resources have resulted in deforestation of our forest lands.
Hydroelectric energy has resulted in endangering the salmon due to dams built on water ways and polluting the rivers due to impounding the water.

Photovoltaic energy from solar cells is not a true "renewable" energy. It cost more in pollution to make the solar cells than the other sources of nonrenewable energy. The same is true of Wind Generators.

How Can I Convert My Homemade Solar Panel (15.3 Dcv And 3 Amp) To Ac?
I Made My Own Solar Panel At Home And Im Trying To Use It To Power An Ac Fan Or Something Small Like That. If You Have Any Tips Or Tricks Or Specific Inverters That Might Help Me Out, Let Me Know. Thank You

How did you measure the 15.3 volts and 3 amps? Do you mean 15.3 volts at 3 amps? Or do you mean 15.3 volts open circuit? If you haven't measured it under load, now is the time to do it.

Assuming you measured it under load, you have about 45 watts of power at the panel.

Motors draw more current at start up than they do while running. So you need 2-3 times the running current at start up.

Do you plan to use a battery? Or directly connect the panel to the inverter? Charging a suitable battery through a charge controller will give you a lot more stable results.

Consider getting a 12 volt fan (sold for truck/RV usage). This would avoid a number of potential headaches with the inverter idea. 15 watts or less is my guess. If the voltage runs too high you can always add a power resistor to drop the voltage.

But if you really want the AC, note the following:
-You lose power in the inverter. Probably quite a bit. An inverter draws power even if it isn't supplying power to anything.
-Any cheap inverter will probably act "squirrely" under under volt & over volt conditions. Hooking a panel directly to an inverter sounds like a recipe for problems.

Which Manufacturing Company(Not Installing Company) Makes The Best Solar Energy Panel?

i know you didn't ask about installing, so i apologize but thought i would point you towards this website that has a wealth of info and helps calculate how many panels, how much space is needed and other details, in case you didn't know of it. it is more centered towards installs though. i'm looking into this as well right now and found this site to be rather useful though.

How Is Convection, Percipitation And Fossil Fuels A Form Of Solar Energy?

fossil fuels were either vegetation or marine microbes. the energy in them, they got it from the sun and thats the energy in fossil fuels.
for precipitation cloud formation is necessary. clouds form because of water evaporating from the earth and evaporation is caused by solar energy. here the solar energy is converted into kinetic energy of water molecules. the KE is converted to potential energy when they form clouds. the pe is converted into the ke of rain or snow or hail during precipitation.
convection means a type of heat transfer. in the case of air, the particles of air obtain heat from the earths surface, heated by the SUN. then they move up(ke). then a low pressure is created which is filled by surrounding air and that is wind.
