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 house owners to use the sun to power daily life: running your air conditioning unit, cleaning clothes, watching TELEVISION, cooking supper. All while decreasing your carbon footprint, and without burning fossil fuels or putting a strain on the electrical grid. And while the ecological advantages of solar power are significant, many residents discover that the convenience, distinct functions, and expense savings of owning a solar power system are even more alluring.

Top Ten Benefits of Solar Energy

#1 Significantly minimize and even eliminate your electric costs

Whether you're a homeowner, organization, or not-for-profit, electrical power expenses can comprise a large portion of your month-to-month expenditures. With a photovoltaic panel system, you'll produce complimentary 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 energy expenses and you'll still save a lot of money.

#2 Earn a terrific return on your financial investment

Photovoltaic panels aren't an expense-- they are among the best methods to invest, with returns measuring up to those of more conventional financial investments like stocks and bonds. Thanks to significant electricity costs cost savings, the typical American homeowner settles their solar panel system in 7 to eight years and sees an ROI of 20 percent or more.

#3 Safeguard against rising energy expenses

Among the most clear cut benefits of solar panels is the ability to hedge utility costs. In the past 10 years, domestic electrical energy rates have gone up by approximately three percent yearly. By purchasing a solar energy system now, you can repair your electrical energy rate and safeguard against unforeseeable boosts in electrical energy costs. If you're an organisation or property owner with changing money circulation, going solar also helps you much better projection and handle your costs.

#4 Boost your residential or commercial property worth

Several research studies have actually discovered that homes geared up with solar energy systems have higher property worths and sell quicker than non-solar homes. Appraisers are progressively taking solar setups into factor to consider as they value homes at the time of a sale, and as homebuyers become more informed about solar, need for properties geared up with photovoltaic panel systems will continue to grow.

#5 Boost U.S. energy self-reliance

The sun is a near-infinite source of energy and a key part of achieving energy independence in the United States. By increasing our capacity to generate electrical power from the sun, we can also insulate our country from price variations in international energy markets.

#6 Develop jobs and help your local economy

According to The Solar Structure, the solar industry added jobs 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 development is anticipated to continue. Due to the fact that solar-related jobs tend to be greater paying and can not be contracted out, they are a substantial contributor to the U.S. economy.

#7 Protect the environment

Solar is a fantastic way to decrease your carbon footprint. Buildings are responsible for 38 percent of all carbon emissions in the U.S., and going solar can significantly decrease that number. A normal domestic solar panel system will get rid of three to 4 tons of carbon emissions each year-- the equivalent of planting over 100 trees yearly.

#8 Show your dedication to sustainability

Sustainability and business social responsibility are crucial components of an organization's culture and worths. They also produce bottom line results. Progressively, consumers and communities are recognizing and rewarding services that pick to run properly. Businesses are discovering that "green" credentials are a powerful driver of customer purchasing choices, creating goodwill and enhancing service results.

#9 Start Conserving from Day 1

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

Many property owners decide to finance their solar panels with one of the "pay-as-you-go" funding alternatives. This means that a third-party company-- the solar service provider-- owns the planetary system and looks after setup, upkeep, tracking and repair works. 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 fluctuating and unreliable electrical energy costs. There is plainly an upward pattern.

With photovoltaic panels and easy mathematics, we can compute just how much electricity will be created, and most notably, at what cost, for at least the next 20 years (fixed energy costs).


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.

The Lease

  • Low, fixed payments each month
  • System insurance for 20 years, including maintenance
  • 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


  • 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 Large Of A Panel Or Panels Would I Need To Charge An Electric Car Battery?
I Would Like To Have A Designated Solar Panel Electric System To Charge An Electric Car. Can It Be Designed As A Portable System To Take With Me If And When I Move To A New House? Or Can One Be Designed As A Portable System To Take In The Car And Used To Charge The Car When Needed?

First we need to examine the required parameters. "An electric car battery" is not a standard item. The Volt and I-Miev batteries are 16KW-hr. The Leaf battery is 24KW-hr and the Tesla Roadster battery holds 53KW-hr of energy. The larger the capacity the longer it will take to charge all else being equal.

The second issue is time. Even from the grid you can charge your electric vehicle with a Type I charger at low voltage and amperage or a Type II charger at a higher voltage and amperage. The Type II charger is likely to be 4 times as fast. The same will be true of the size of the solar panel array.

As long as a solar panel will add more to batteries than the losses it will charge the vehicle. So are we considering only standing losses of about 3% per month, daily driving up to the battery range of the vehicle, or do you want to consider the continuously running the vehicle? Lets use the Nissan Leaf as an example:

The leaf battery is 24KW-hr. In a month such a battery would lose about 3% of its charge just sitting around. This amounts to (24 x .03) .72KW-hr / month. On a daily basis this would be (.72 x 12/365) .02KW-hr Solar insolation varies by location and time of year. The daily average in Arizona at the peak time of the year is about 7KW-hr / sq meter / day. Solar panels vary in efficiency but 10% is not an unreasonable number with today's technology. This would give us .7KW-hr of electricity / sq meter for our panels and a maintenance panel would only have to be (.2/.7) .286 sq meter in size. This would probably fit on your dashboard and such items are already sold:

If however you anticipated using the full EPA range of the vehicle on a charge (73 miles) you would need 24 KW hr / day. Our best case solar panels would then have to be (24 / .7) about 34.29 sq meters (or 369 sq ft in size) This would approximately be equal to a surface area of 8 feet by 46 feet long. While this is hardly portable there have been some efforts to combine stationary and portable solar panels to drive electric cars: Here also is a portable solar panel trailer: There are solar cars but these are not passenger vehicles. They are built ultra light and efficient:

Last if you were to try to power your Nissan Leaf continuously like a solar vehicle we might derive that the Leaf would require (24KW-hr/73 miles) about .329 KW-hr/mile. Traveling at 60 mph in one hour the vehicle would need 19.72 KW-hr / hour or about a 20 KW power supply. Commercial solar panels you might put on the roof of your house are rated from about 165 watts to just over 300 watts power output. You would need from about 66 to 121 of these panels to continuously power the vehicle. A genset trailer might be a better option:

Could Hydrogen Fuel Cells Be Created And Or Maintained Using Solar Energy?
I Think A Hydrogen Fuel Cell Could Be Powered By Solar Energy-But I'M Not Exactly Sure How.

Yes, they can. But it's a kind of inefficient process.

Solar panel powers two electrodes, sunk into water.

The electricity of the electrodes causes electrolysis, breaking water down into hydrogen (at the anode) and oxygen (at the cathode).

The separate hydrogen and oxygen gases are collected.

They are then combined to create energy.

Thermal Energy Experiment That I Need Help On. Please!?
We Have To Show How In An Experiment How Certain Types Of Energy(Mechanical, Electromagnetic, Chemical, Solar...Ect.) Can Be Converted Into Thermal Energy. So Far The Only Thing My Group And I Can Think Of Is Melting Ice Or Boiling Water. Teacher Said No. Any Suggestions?

LOL.. Wow.. back to basics..

Mechanical energy to Thermal.. Think.. Friction

Chemical.. think.. Vinegar and Baking Soda.. gets hot and foams.. watchout..

Chemical think.. Burning Hydrocarbons.. gasoline is a good example.. oxidation is good also

Solar.. well, radiaition has a low transferance..but think Black and enclosure..

That's all the homework help today.

Is Obama'S Victory, America'S Demise?
Explain Your Answer... Or Prepare To Get Blocked. I Have No Time For Insults Or Trolls.

Yes. The EPA is trying to stop fracking which would cause our electricity to sky rocket just like Obama said. The EPA is also closing many coal fired power plants which will also make our energy bills sky rocket. They are closing many coal mines but the ones that pass muster currently will sell their coal to China and are doing so now. He will never permit the pipeline and has stopped 30% of drilling permits on federal land that had already been issued as well as preventing exploration and deep water drilling while funding Mexico and Brazil with billions of dollars to do so.

You see, without cheap energy, this country is going no where but down. Your electricity will become so expensive that your quality of life will nose dive. That is just the main issue. Add to the the many effects of Obamacare. Yes we are going to experience the complete demise of the USA. Solar panels? There are 167 solar panels on the roof of the white house. They heat the swimming pool and provide the domestic hot water. How many solar panels and wind turbines will it take to replace fossil fuels. One unit of fossil fuel electricity costs 22 cents vs one unit of wind turbine energy $22 dollars.

So If I Put Very Little Paint...- Like One Side Of It The Solar Panel, And The Other Side Blank... Its An Experiment!! Best Answer Goes To People Who Actually Answer My Question... Not Critiizize My Project!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

it will not blow up
but it may crack and get destroyed
the light hitting the photovoltaic panel has to be uniform and the same wavelength (color)

PV panels are sensitive to infrared light
so if you get translucent paint that is clear to IR
