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 homeowner to use the sun to power everyday life: running your air conditioning unit, cleaning clothes, enjoying TELEVISION, cooking dinner. All while minimizing your carbon footprint, and without burning nonrenewable fuel sources or putting a stress on the electrical grid. And while the ecological benefits of solar power are considerable, lots of homeowners discover that the convenience, unique functions, and expense savings of owning a solar power system are much more alluring.

Top Ten Benefits of Solar Energy

#1 Dramatically reduce or perhaps eliminate your electric expenses

Whether you're a house owner, business, or nonprofit, electricity costs can comprise a big part of your monthly expenditures. With a photovoltaic panel system, you'll create totally free power for your system's entire 25+ year lifecycle. Even if you don't produce 100 percent of the energy you take in, solar will minimize your utility bills and you'll still save a great deal of money.

#2 Earn a fantastic return on your financial investment

Solar panels aren't an expense-- they are among the very best ways to invest, with returns matching those of more traditional financial investments like stocks and bonds. Thanks to significant electrical power expense savings, the typical American property owner pays off their photovoltaic panel system in 7 to 8 years and sees an ROI of 20 percent or more.

#3 Protect versus increasing energy costs

Among the most clear cut benefits of solar panels is the ability to hedge energy prices. In the past ten years, property electrical energy costs have actually increased by an average of three percent annually. By purchasing a solar energy system now, you can repair your electricity rate and safeguard versus unforeseeable boosts in electricity costs. If you're a company or homeowner with rising and falling money circulation, going solar also helps you better projection and handle your costs.

#4 Boost your house worth

Multiple research studies have actually discovered that houses equipped with solar energy systems have greater residential or commercial property worths and sell more rapidly than non-solar homes. Appraisers are significantly taking solar setups into consideration as they value houses at the time of a sale, and as property buyers become more educated about solar, demand for properties equipped 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 crucial element of accomplishing energy independence in the United States. By increasing our capability to produce electricity from the sun, we can likewise insulate our country from price changes in worldwide energy markets.

#6 Develop jobs and help your regional economy

Inning accordance with The Solar Structure, the solar market added tasks at a rate almost 12 times faster than the overall U.S. economy in 2015, representing 1.2 percent of all jobs in the country. This development is expected to continue. Because solar-related tasks have the tendency to be higher paying and can not be contracted out, they are a substantial factor to the U.S. economy.

#7 Secure the environment

Solar is a terrific way to minimize your carbon footprint. Structures are responsible for 38 percent of all carbon emissions in the U.S., and going solar can considerably decrease that number. A typical domestic photovoltaic panel system will eliminate 3 to 4 lots of carbon emissions each year-- the equivalent of planting over 100 trees every year.

#8 Show your commitment to sustainability

Sustainability and corporate social duty are essential elements of a company's culture and worths. They also produce bottom line results. Increasingly, consumers and neighborhoods are acknowledging and rewarding businesses that opt to run responsibly. Organisations are finding that "green" qualifications are a powerful driver of consumer acquiring choices, creating goodwill and enhancing company outcomes.

#9 Start Conserving from Day 1

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

Lots of homeowners decide to finance their solar panels with one of the "pay-as-you-go" funding alternatives. This suggests that a third-party company-- the solar company-- owns the planetary system and looks after installation, upkeep, monitoring and repair works. You merely pay the solar service provider for electrical energy-- less than you would've paid the utility business.

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

#10. Solar is a Secure Investment

The energy business are well-known for their changing and unreliable electrical energy costs. There is plainly an upward pattern.

With solar panels and basic math, we can compute just how much electricity will be created, and most importantly, at exactly what cost, for a minimum of the next 20 years (repaired energy expenses).

Frequently Asked Questions

Which Countries Use Solar Panel The Most?
Well You Know What I Mean Right?

solar energy is so far off from being commercially viable it isn't even funny. They cost literally thousands of dollars and require expensive maintenance on not so environmentally friendly batteries.

They are only viable in countries where the existing energy company is not reliable or under threat of terrorists.

Does It Make Sense To Put Solar Panels On My House?
I Live In The Twin Cities (Minnesota) I Am Going To Build A Home, And I Am Thinking Of Going Green, I Probably Won'T Do Some Of The &Quot;Green Things&Quot; Like Using All Recycled Materials, Or Even Bamboo Flooring, But More So, Radiant Floor Heating, All Energy Star Appliances (Even Getting An Led Tv), Tankless Water Heater, French Drain Water Collection (For Water The Lawn) Led Lights, Spray Foam Insulation Etc. Does It Make Sense To Get Solar Panels? I Know That Building Rather Thatn Buying Saves Me 25%, But Going Full On Green Costs About 40% More. My Ultimate Goal It To Have A Home That Is Comfortable, Cool In The Summer, Warm In The Winter, Not A Lot Of Energy Loss, And Especially Low Utility Costs. I Know Solar Cells Are Expensive, And I Going To Build A 3000-4000 Sq Ft House... What Do You Think?

Michael, since you're designing the house, you should take advantage of passive solar building techniques - south facing windows, earth sheltering, a lot of interior thermal mass, etc. Check into using insulated concrete forms for the walls. Next, consider where dollars are most effectively spent for active energy recovery. Rather than gathering sunlight and converting it to electricity, convert it to heat and store it in a hot water tank - which provides both household heat and domestic hot water. How to air condition a house with hydronic heat? Look further into earth sheltered construction, and plan landscaping to provide some shade. You may find your AC needs are minimal or non existent. Do this correctly, and you'll save tons of $$ in utility bills while the rest of the nation is up in arms about rising energy prices. You should be able to name that tune for about 20 - 25% above normal construction costs. Good luck!

Solar Power Energy?
Im Doing A Report On Solar Power Energy So If You Would Help Me By Either Giving Me Answers To Theses Questions Or Giving Me Links That Will Answer Them That Will Be Great! Thankz! -Who Are The People Or Groups Of People That Came Up With The Idea Of Using The Sun For Energy? -Do The Costs Of Solar Panels Make It Functional? -Is Solar Power Energy Widely Accepted Today? Why Or Why Not? -What Are The Advantages And Disadvantages Of Using Solar Power Energy Vs. Fossil Fuels? -Were There Different Designs Of Solar Panels In The Past Versus Today? Thanx

Solar energy was a direct outcome of early observations of semiconductors at Bell Laboratories where they invented the transistor.

Solar energy is economical now, and it is functional. The economy must be viewed as something where the payback is a few years.

Solar energy is widely accepted.

Solar energy does not produce greenhouse gases. It is not controlled by someone else. It will not run out. The energy source is freely available to everybody.

The direction of solar electric panels is toward amorphous (as opposed to crystaline) photoelectric cells. Of course, there are new projects starting that use the thermal energy to heat water and other materials, producing electricity with boilers and generators.

Any Scientific Proyect That Can Help The Environment?
Like A Solar Panel

there are lots of toxic compounds in the water- such as DDT.
You can create a dipstick (such as what they have for the pool to measure pH and chlorine)
it should work like this:
1) dip it in the water for 10 seconds (or any amount of time)
2) compare the color with the colors on the box (each color represents a different toxicity of the water)

Someone in a science symposium did this for bisephenol (i think..? It is used in many plastics)

Solar Panel Question..?
I Don'T Know Very Much About It, But Can You Somehow Take Off The Little Solar Panels Off Of The Outdoor Light Things And Make It So You Can Hook An Outlet Up To It And Plug In To It Like A Phone Charger For Electricity.

Little solar panels on lights are very low power. The battery in one such may be 0.5 Amp-hours and 1.2 V ; it may be different but it should be marked on the panel/battery/manual. An outlet in your house is designed to run on 120 V (typically in N. Am.) and they run on alternating current (AC) whereas the panel generates direct current (DC). (If you don't know the difference, do not worry to much but just understand that they are not directly compatible.) You therefore need an inverter to change DC to AC (and lose some although inverters are now very efficient). But the amount of power generated by those panels is still very small. That is why solar lights are low power (just a few watts in most cases).

To make things even more irritating, phone chargers do not work off 120 V AC as you are charging the battery and need a low voltage DC -- which is what the solar panel is giving you. It is almost certain that the voltage from the panel will be less than the voltage required for the phone. The charger is mostly cable but there is a black box incorporated and it should say what the voltage and current output are (the input will be 120V).

So you should be able to overcome this not by hooking up the panel to a 120V outlet and then plugging the charger in but by hooking up the panel to the phone directly if you can get enough voltage out of the solar panel (or hook up several) and if you fashion a connection device. They already make them -- solar battery chargers and I am sure you can enter that into a search engine and find loads. Typically the panel alone is much more than a solar light -- which shows the relative power requirements.
