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 home owners to utilize the sun to power daily life: running your air conditioner, washing clothing, viewing TELEVISION, cooking dinner. All while decreasing your carbon footprint, and without burning nonrenewable fuel sources or putting a pressure on the electrical grid. And while the environmental benefits of solar power are considerable, many residents find that the convenience, unique features, and expense savings of owning a solar power system are much more enticing.

Top 10 Advantages of Solar Energy

#1 Dramatically minimize or even eliminate your electric bills

Whether you're a homeowner, organization, or nonprofit, electrical power expenses can comprise a large part of your month-to-month expenditures. With a solar panel system, you'll create free power for your system's whole 25+ year lifecycle. Even if you don't produce 100 percent of the energy you consume, solar will decrease your utility bills and you'll still save a great deal of loan.

#2 Earn a fantastic return on your investment

Solar panels aren't an expense-- they are among the very best methods to invest, with returns matching those of more traditional investments like stocks and bonds. Thanks to substantial electrical power bill cost savings, the typical American homeowner 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 costs

Among the most clear cut advantages of photovoltaic panels is the ability to hedge energy rates. In the past 10 years, domestic electrical power rates have actually increased by approximately three percent each year. By investing in a solar energy system now, you can repair your electrical energy rate and protect against unpredictable boosts in electricity costs. If you're a business or house owner with ever-changing money circulation, going solar also helps you much better projection and manage your costs.

#4 Increase your house value

Multiple studies have found that houses geared up with solar energy systems have higher home worths and offer more rapidly than non-solar homes. Appraisers are progressively taking solar setups into factor to consider as they value houses at the time of a sale, and as property buyers become more informed about solar, demand for properties geared up 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 key element of attaining energy self-reliance in the United States. By increasing our capacity to create electricity from the sun, we can also insulate our country from rate fluctuations in international energy markets.

#6 Develop jobs and help your regional economy

Inning accordance with The Solar Foundation, the solar industry included jobs at a rate nearly 12 times faster than the general U.S. economy in 2015, representing 1.2 percent of all tasks in the country. This development is expected to continue. Since solar-related tasks have the tendency to be greater paying and can not be contracted out, they are a substantial contributor to the United States economy.

#7 Safeguard the environment

Solar is a great 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 decrease that number. A normal domestic photovoltaic panel system will remove 3 to 4 lots of carbon emissions each year-- the equivalent of planting over 100 trees each year.

#8 Demonstrate your commitment to sustainability

Sustainability and corporate social responsibility are very important components of a company's culture and worths. They likewise produce bottom line results. Increasingly, consumers and neighborhoods are recognizing and rewarding organisations that decide to run responsibly. Services are discovering that "green" qualifications are a powerful driver of customer getting decisions, creating goodwill and improving company results.

#9 Start Saving from Day 1

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

Numerous house owners pick to fund their photovoltaic panels with one of the "pay-as-you-go" funding options. This means that a third-party company-- the solar provider-- owns the solar system and looks after installation, maintenance, monitoring and repairs. You merely pay the solar supplier for electrical energy-- less than you would've paid the energy 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 business are notorious for their varying and undependable electricity costs. There is clearly an upward pattern.

With solar panels and simple mathematics, we can determine how much electricity will be produced, and most significantly, at what price, for a minimum of the next 20 years (repaired energy expenses).

Frequently Asked Questions

Who Can Sell Me Solarcell For Construction Of Solar Panels//A S P.?

You can try a place like this http://www.goldmine-elec.com/SolarItems.... but be aware that building a panel from cells at this price will cost more than simply buying a commercial panel. And the commercial panel will be weatherproof, reliable, and will have a warranty.

How Does Solar Panels Work?

Solar panels collect solar radiation from the sun and actively convert that energy to electricity. Solar panels are comprised of several individual solar cells. These solar cells function similarly to large semiconductors and utilize a large-area p-n junction diode. When the solar cells are exposed to sunlight, the p-n junction diodes convert the energy from sunlight into usable electrical energy. The energy generated from photons striking the surface of the solar panel allows electrons to be knocked out of their orbits and released, and electric fields in the solar cells pull these free electrons in a directional current, from which metal contacts in the solar cell can generate electricity. The more solar cells in a solar panel and the higher the quality of the solar cells, the more total electrical output the solar panel can produce. The conversion of sunlight to usable electrical energy has been dubbed the Photovoltaic Effect.

The photovoltaic effect arises from the properties of the p-n junction diode, as such there are no moving parts in a solar panel.

What Is The Best And Proven Solar Power Unit For Creating Free Power For Your Household?
Something That Is Affordable And You Can Use At Home.

The technology is well-proven for professionally installed systems, so I wouldn't worry too much about anything except the installer's reputation and expertise.

At present, solar electric involves $10k, $20k, maybe even more of capital investment in order to be cost effective in the USA. It varies by location. With rebates in some states, this can be cheaper than the grid electricity you presently buy, over the course of 10 or 20 years. Or, if the power you're buying right now is already very expensive, like 30 cents per kWh or more, then you can save money with solar. You can only SAVE money, it's not really "free".

But take heart! I think panel prices will be dropping in the next year or so. There was a shortage of polysilicon, the raw material that makes the majority of panels today, but new supplies will finally be coming on line.

Also, if saving money is your goal, first and foremost, invest in conservation - efficient appliances, insulation.

Finally, a solar hot water heater, displacing an electric one, can pay for itself in maybe 3 or 4 years, depending on where you live.

We installed solar panels on our house, $12,000 after rebate for a 2.5 kW system, about 2 years ago. A neighbor just installed a system, for about the same price, except they got 3.5 kW, professionally installed. Prices are beginning to soften.

When Will It Be Affordable For The Average Person To Afford Electric Cars, And Solar Panels?
I Hear On This Site That, These Are The Answer To All Our Problems, Problem Is The Average American Can'T Afford Them. Yes They Give You Tax Insentive'S, But At $100,000 An Up A Pop To Make You'Re House Run On Solar Energy, It'S Still A Pipedream For Most Of Us. Hybrid Cars Are What About $50,000 And Up.I Guess Like All Technoligy, We Just Have To Wait For The Price To Go Down With Time,

Ok you have to understand that the average family can not run their house off solar energy even if you you had your whole roof and half your yard covered with cells. you would have to change your stove to gas your frig to something so small you all you could keep in it would be gal of milk. your washing machine would be iffy at best and air dry your cloths and AC don't even think about it. and in 20 years your solar cells are worn out it time to buy new ones.

How To Make Solar Panel?
Hi Everbody Who Help Me Homemade Solar Panel

Buy Photovoltaic cells and your most practical (and cheapest) option is to set them up in cardboard cases.

You might be able to find a instruction video on youtube.

You could also just get a degree in electrical engineering which is ideal, though impractical.
