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 daily life: running your a/c, cleaning clothes, watching TELEVISION, cooking dinner. All while minimizing your carbon footprint, and without burning nonrenewable fuel sources or putting a strain on the electrical grid. And while the environmental advantages of solar power are significant, lots of residents find that the convenience, unique functions, and expense savings of owning a solar power system are much more enticing.

Top 10 Benefits of Solar Energy

#1 Considerably decrease and even remove your electrical bills

Whether you're a homeowner, business, or nonprofit, electrical power expenses can comprise a big portion of your month-to-month expenditures. With a solar panel system, you'll create complimentary power for your system's entire 25+ year lifecycle. Even if you do not produce 100 percent of the energy you take in, solar will lower your energy costs and you'll still conserve a lot of loan.

#2 Make a terrific return on your financial investment

Solar panels aren't an expenditure-- they are among the very best methods to invest, with returns matching those of more conventional investments like stocks and bonds. Thanks to substantial electricity costs savings, the typical American house owner settles their photovoltaic panel system in seven to eight years and sees an ROI of 20 percent or more.

#3 Secure against rising energy costs

One of the most clear cut advantages of solar panels is the ability to hedge utility rates. In the past ten years, property electricity prices have gone up by an average of three percent every year. By purchasing a solar energy system now, you can repair your electrical power rate and safeguard versus unforeseeable boosts in electrical energy costs. If you're a service or house owner with fluctuating capital, going solar likewise helps you better forecast and handle your expenditures.

#4 Increase your house worth

Numerous studies have discovered that homes equipped with solar energy systems have higher residential or commercial property values and sell quicker than non-solar homes. Appraisers are significantly taking solar installations into consideration as they value homes at the time of a sale, and as homebuyers become more informed about solar, demand for homes equipped with photovoltaic panel systems will continue to grow.

#5 Increase U.S. energy independence

The sun is a near-infinite source of energy and an essential part of achieving energy independence in the United States. By increasing our capability to produce electricity from the sun, we can likewise insulate our nation from rate variations in international energy markets.

#6 Create jobs and help your regional economy

Inning accordance with The Solar Foundation, the solar industry added tasks at a rate almost 12 times faster than the overall U.S. economy in 2015, representing 1.2 percent of all tasks in the country. This development is anticipated to continue. Due to the fact that solar-related jobs tend to be higher paying and can not be contracted out, they are a substantial factor to the U.S. economy.

#7 Safeguard the environment

Solar is a fantastic way to lower your carbon footprint. Buildings are accountable for 38 percent of all carbon emissions in the U.S., and going solar can considerably decrease that number. A normal domestic solar panel system will remove 3 to four lots of carbon emissions each year-- the equivalent of planting over 100 trees every year.

#8 Demonstrate your commitment to sustainability

Sustainability and corporate social obligation are essential elements of an organization's culture and worths. They also produce bottom line outcomes. Significantly, consumers and neighborhoods are acknowledging and rewarding businesses that opt to operate properly. Companies are finding that "green" credentials are a powerful motorist of consumer getting choices, producing goodwill and enhancing service results.

#9 Start Conserving from Day 1

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

Many homeowners pick to fund their photovoltaic panels with one of the "pay-as-you-go" funding alternatives. This indicates that a third-party company-- the solar service provider-- owns the solar system and looks after setup, maintenance, monitoring and repairs. You just pay the solar service provider for electricity-- less than you would've paid the energy 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 undependable electricity prices. There is clearly an upward pattern.

With solar panels and basic mathematics, we can compute how much electrical energy will be produced, and most significantly, at exactly what price, for a minimum of the next Twenty Years (repaired energy costs).

Frequently Asked Questions

Why Is Wind Power A Sustainable Form Of Enery?
Need Some Help For An Assignment. Also............ 2 Examples Of Where Wind Power Is Used How Does This Form Of Energy Impact On People'S Live?? Thanks

wind is a sustainable power of energy.

Wind power is the conversion of wind energy into a useful form of energy, such as using wind turbines to make electricity, wind mills for mechanical power, wind pumps for pumping water or drainage, or sails to propel ships.

At the end of 2009, worldwide nameplate capacity of wind-powered generators was 159.2 gigawatts (GW). Energy production was 340 TWh, which is about 2% of worldwide electricity usage; and has doubled in the past three years. Several countries have achieved relatively high levels of wind power penetration, such as 20% of stationary electricity production in Denmark, 14% in Ireland and Portugal, 11% in Spain, and 8% in Germany in 2009. As of May 2009, 80 countries around the world are using wind power on a commercial basis.
Large-scale wind farms are connected to the electric power transmission network; smaller facilities are used to provide electricity to isolated locations. Utility companies increasingly buy back surplus electricity produced by small domestic turbines. Wind energy, as an alternative to fossil fuels, is plentiful, renewable, widely distributed, clean, and produces no greenhouse gas emissions during operation. However, the construction of wind farms is not universally welcomed because of their visual impact but any effects on the environment are generally among the least problematic of any power source.
The intermittency of wind seldom creates problems when using wind power to supply a low proportion of total demand, but as the proportion rises, increased costs, a need to upgrade the grid, and a lowered ability to supplant conventional production may occur. Power management techniques such as exporting and importing power to neighboring areas or reducing demand when wind production is low, can mitigate these problems.

Sustainable energy is the provision of energy that meets the needs of the present without compromising the ability of future generations to meet their needs. Sustainable energy sources are most often regarded as including all renewable energy sources, such as hydroelectricity, solar energy, wind energy, wave power, geothermal energy, bioenergy, and tidal power. It usually also includes technologies that improve energy efficiency.

So yes, wind energy is pretty sustainable.

How Solar Energy Can Be Used Most Effectively In India ?

In rural sector. In remote areas where it is uneconomical to pull distribution line and install a transformer, solar power will be definitely economical as well as useful.

Another area is highways - automated telephonebooths using solar power.

Solar power plants can be installed in desert areas of Thar where sunlight and land have no limits.

Providing telecom in rural areas using setellite and solar power will make stand alone units.

How Is Solar Energy Produced?
Give Me All The Details.

I hope I can give you a decent answer.

There are different forms of solar power: "solar thermal" and "solar photovoltaic".

Solar thermal involves the sun directly heating a fluid, say air or water, which is then used directly, i.e. to heat a house or hot water for a shower.

Solar photovoltaic, or "PV", as mentioned above, uses the sunlight itself. The light hits a PV panel made of semiconductors, which frees electrons which form a current. This is how we get electricity directly from sunlight. The brighter the light, the more power we get from this technology. It evens works when it's cloudy.

I talk about this more at my site, as http://www.howtopowertheworld.com/solar-power.html

I hope this helps

EDIT: I just realised I said pretty much the same thing on another of your questions! I didn't realise you were the same person. I think this is the better of the two, though :P

Which Alternative Energy Source Do You Think Is Most Practical?
There Are Many, Many, Alternative Energy Sources Solar, Hydro-Electric, Wind, Electricity, Bio-Fuels And Such, Geo-Thermal, Nuclear, And The List Could Go On For A Long, Long Time, But Which Energy Source Do You Think Is The Most Practical? Like In The Future, Which Energy Sources Will Be Used. I Think Solar Energy Is A Great Idea, And That We Have Only Scratched The Surface Of What It Could Do For Us. However, As Of Now Solar Energy Has Some Flaws, For Example You Could Use Solar Energy In California Easily Because It Is Sunny For Most Of The Year, But In States Like Oregon/Washington Where It Rains A Lot, You Couldn't Use It As Efficiently. I Don't Know Why, But I Have Never Been A Big Fan On Hydro-Electric Power... I Mean, I Know Dams Can Produce Enough Power To Give Energy To Entire Cities, But There Is Always The Chance Of The Dam Breaking, If You've Happened To Watch A Special About Dams, You Might Have Heard That Many Dams That Have Been Inspected Are Classified As Not Safe... I Dunno... Lots Of People Like Hydro-Electric, It Just Never Seemed To Turn Me On.. Wind... Lots Of People Like Wind Power.... I Mean, It, Out Of All The Energy Sources Is Probably The Cleanest... Its Just That, They Don't Generate A Tremendous Amount Of Power As Of Now At Least... Electricity Is My Favorite, Thus I'd Give A Biased Explanation Favoring It, So I Won't Even Bother. Bio Fuels... The Only Problem That I Really Have Is, What If There Is A Blizzard Or Drought How Are You Going To Get Your Bio Fuel? Like Solar, I Think Geo-Thermal Could Be Used To Generate More Energy Than It Does, But I Have Always Thought It As.. I Don't Know How To Explain It... Sort Of An Old Idea... I Know Lots Of People Use It To Heat There Homes But I Think It Can Be Reinvented To Be Greater Than It Is. Nuclear-Powerful, Dangerous. So, Which Source Do You Think Is The Answer? Or Do You Think A Combination Of Some Of The Energy Sources Will Be The Future. Or Do You Think We Will Find A New Source Of Energy In The Future That Will Surpass All The Current Forms, Maybe From Space Or Something. Or Do You Think We Won't Survive To Find Out... So Yeah... What Do You Think?

I think you have to look at the particular climate and environment you live in, e.g. hours of sunlight, amount of wind, closeness to a suitable river system, closeness to the ocean, availability of hot-rocks and geothermal activity. All of these natural assets can be used to provide power in a clean and economical way. I think the best sources of "Green Power" are Hot-rocks/Geothermal sites and wave power as they seem to use the least use of expensive technology to utilise them. I think they would also leave the smallest "footprint" on our precious environment.

What Other Energy Sources Other Than Fossil Fules That Can Be Nonpollutable?
Other Than &Quot;Hydorelectri Energy&Quot; &Quot;Air Energy&Quot; And &Quot;Underwater Energy&Quot;

Solar energy, which can be used in two ways, as Solar Thermal energy which uses the heat of the Sun, or Solar Photovoltaic energy which uses the Sun's light.

You may also have a number of different types of Marine energy such as Tidal Energy, Wave Energy, and Deep Water Heat Pumps which rely on the temperature gradient between warm surface water and colder deep water.

There is also a method of extracting energy from the movement of mountain and ice-cap glaciers.

Finally there are several types of Geo-Thermal Energy, which use the internal heat of the Earth in areas where there are volcanoes, geysers, hydro-thermal vents, hot springs and hot mud pools.
