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 daily life: running your air conditioning system, cleaning clothing, enjoying TELEVISION, cooking dinner. All while reducing your carbon footprint, and without burning nonrenewable fuel sources or putting a strain on the electrical grid. And while the environmental benefits of solar power are substantial, many residents find that the convenience, unique features, and cost savings of owning a solar power system are much more alluring.

Leading Benefits of Solar Energy

#1 Significantly minimize and even eliminate your electrical bills

Whether you're a house owner, company, or not-for-profit, electricity expenses can comprise a big portion of your monthly costs. With a solar panel system, you'll generate complimentary power for your system's entire 25+ year lifecycle. Even if you don't produce One Hundred Percent of the energy you take in, solar will decrease your energy expenses and you'll still save a lot of money.

#2 Earn an excellent return on your financial investment

Solar panels aren't a cost-- they are among the finest ways to invest, with returns rivaling those of more conventional financial investments like stocks and bonds. Thanks to significant electrical energy expense cost savings, the average American homeowner pays off their solar panel system in 7 to 8 years and sees an ROI of 20 percent or more.

#3 Secure against rising energy expenses

Among the most clear cut benefits of photovoltaic panels is the ability to hedge energy costs. In the previous 10 years, domestic electrical power rates have increased by an average of 3 percent every year. By buying a solar energy system now, you can fix your electrical power rate and protect against unforeseeable boosts in electricity costs. If you're an organisation or house owner with ever-changing money flow, going solar also assists you much better projection and manage your costs.

#4 Boost your home value

Multiple research studies have found that homes geared up with solar energy systems have greater home values and sell more quickly than non-solar homes. Appraisers are increasingly taking solar installations into consideration as they value homes at the time of a sale, and as property buyers end up being more informed about solar, need 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 key component of accomplishing energy self-reliance in the United States. By increasing our capacity to produce electrical energy from the sun, we can also insulate our nation from rate fluctuations in global energy markets.

#6 Develop jobs and assist your regional economy

Inning accordance with The Solar Structure, the solar market added jobs at a rate nearly 12 times faster than the total U.S. economy in 2015, representing 1.2 percent of all tasks in the country. This growth is anticipated to continue. Due to the fact that solar-related tasks tend to be greater paying and can not be outsourced, they are a substantial factor to the U.S. economy.

#7 Protect the environment

Solar is an excellent method to decrease your carbon footprint. Structures are responsible for 38 percent of all carbon emissions in the United States, and going solar can substantially reduce that number. A normal residential solar panel system will remove three to 4 lots of carbon emissions each year-- the equivalent of planting over 100 trees yearly.

#8 Show your commitment to sustainability

Sustainability and business social obligation are necessary components of an organization's culture and values. They also produce bottom line outcomes. Progressively, consumers and communities are recognizing and rewarding services that decide to run responsibly. Businesses are discovering that "green" credentials are a powerful chauffeur of consumer getting choices, creating goodwill and enhancing business outcomes.

#9 Start Saving 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.

Numerous property owners opt to finance their solar panels with one of the "pay-as-you-go" financing choices. This implies that a third-party business-- the solar service provider-- owns the planetary system and takes care of setup, upkeep, monitoring and repair works. You merely pay the solar provider for electricity-- 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 well-known for their changing and undependable electricity costs. There is clearly an upward pattern.

With solar panels and easy math, we can calculate how much electricity will be generated, and most significantly, at exactly what rate, for at least the next 20 years (repaired energy costs).

Financing

Frequently Asked Questions

A Good Science Fair Topic With Solar Energy?
I Need A Science Fair Topic That Can Be Done In 2 Weeks And Uses Solar Energy.

Theres a power plant out in the south west states that have thousands of mirrors all around a tower at the top is a huge boiler. The mirrors are continously adjusted to reflect the sunlight to the boiler. The water is heated and turns in to steam which can turn turbines to produce electricity. This is just away to convert solar energy to electricity without the use of a solar panel.

Miley Cyrus Admits Shes Lesbo!?
Lolol, I Need Some Help Again. What's An Example Of : Solar Energy Wind Hydroelectric Geothermal I Couldnt Find It On The Net :P

1. Solar Energy
The sun is our most powerful source of energy. Sunlight, or solar energy, can be used for heating, lighting and cooling homes and other buildings, generating electricity, water heating, and a variety of industrial processes. Most forms of renewable energy come either directly or indirectly from the sun. For example, heat from the sun causes the wind to blow, contributes to the growth of trees and other plants that are used for biomass energy, and plays an essential role in the cycle of evaporation and precipitation that makes hydropower possible.

2. Wind Energy
Wind is the movement of air that occurs when warm air rises and cooler air rushes in to replace it. The energy of the wind has been used for centuries to sail ships and drive windmills that grind grain. Today, wind energy is captured by wind turbines and used to generate electricity.

3. Hydropower
Water flowing downstream is a powerful force. Water is a renewable resource, constantly recharged by the global cycle of evaporation and precipitation. The heat of the sun causes water in lakes and oceans to evaporate and form clouds. The water then falls back to Earth as rain or snow, and drains into rivers and streams that flow back to the ocean. Flowing water can be used to power water wheels that drive mechanical processes. And captured by turbines and generators, like those housed at many dams around the world, the energy of flowing water can be used to generate electricity.

4. Biomass Energy
Biomass has been an important source of energy ever since people first began burning wood to cook food and warm themselves against the winter chill. Wood is still the most common source of biomass energy, but other sources of biomass energy include food crops, grasses and other plants, agricultural and forestry waste and residue, organic components from municipal and industrial wastes, even methane gas harvested from community landfills. Biomass can be used to produce electricity and as fuel for transportation, or to manufacture products that would otherwise require the use of non-renewable fossil fuels.

5. Hydrogen
Hydrogen has tremendous potential as a fuel and energy source, but the technology needed to realize that potential is still in the early stages. Hydrogen is the most common element on Earth—for example, water is two-thirds hydrogen—but in nature it is always found in combination with other elements. Once separated from other elements, hydrogen can be used to power vehicles, replace natural gas for heating and cooking, and to generate electricity.

6. Geothermal Energy
The heat inside the Earth produces steam and hot water that can be used to power generators and produce electricity, or for other applications such as home heating and power generation for industry. Geothermal energy can be drawn from deep underground reservoirs by drilling, or from other geothermal reservoirs closer to the surface.

7. Ocean Energy
The ocean provides several forms of renewable energy, and each one is driven by different forces. Energy from ocean waves and tides can be harnessed to generate electricity, and ocean thermal energy—from the heat stored in sea water—can also be converted to electricity. Using current technologies, most ocean energy is not cost-effective compared to other renewable energy sources, but the ocean remains and important potential energy source for the future.

Is There Somebody Who Can Help Southernland To Developed Technology In Solar Energy.?

Who is Southernland? Where is he from?

Ok, I'm guessing that you mean in the southern part of the USA. That is very simple if you just want to develop home or business systems.. Just search the internet for Grid Tie Systems or Solar Electric Backup. Any solar electric business owner would be more then happy to increase their sales. And would give out all the information needed.

Now if you are trying to develop something new you are on your own because if someone else develops it they will put a price on it and sell it to you anyway.

You are not real clear in your question.

Can I Easily Build My Own Solar Panels For My Home?
Is It Really Possible For Me Living In Denver To Build And Install And Setup My Own Solar Panel To Help Make Electricity For My Home?

It's possible, but not as easy or cost-effective as the sites selling information suggest.

You can build your own solar panels from individual cells or broken cells. Possibly you would end up with a panel that costs less than a commercial one, but it would not have the UL safety certification, and thus would not legally be allowed to be connected to the grid in any place that I know. So you would have to go with charging a battery, and that alone doubles the cost of the system. It could be a fun and educational thing to do, but would not be a money saver.

You could also build a solar water heater - plans and videos abound on the web. However, Denver gets hard freezes in winter, so you would need to drain your home built system during those months. There are solar water heaters designed to take sustained freezing temperatures, but unless you're an engineer, that type would be really hard to make.

The site http://www.nlcpr.com/Deceptions6.php has something to say about various scams, including solar.

Can I Set Up A Diy Solar System In Utah And Still Stay Connected To The Grid?
I Purchased My Home Last Year And Would Like To Build Myself Some Solar Panels To Supplement My Energy Use. The Purpose Would Be To Reduce My Power Consumption And Power Bill. I Am Not Interested In, Or Capable Of, Spending Several Thousand Dollars For A Pro-Installed System. I Am Not Interested In Being Completely Off-Grid. Net Metering Is Not Necessary, But Would Be Nice. I Have Experience With Electrical And Worked With My Father (Master Electrician) For Several Years Wiring Homes. What Are My Realistic Options To Make A Substantial Dent In My Bill? There Appear To Be Many Regulations Concerning Grid-Tie Systems. How Do I Get Around Them And Still Be Safe? I Don'T Particularly Care If Some Bureaucrat Says My System Is Safe. Thanks.

.

A lot depends on where you live..ie in city or out in the sticks
Im off grid and not useing a lot of juice so I have a lot cheaper system then what you will require.
tied into the grid....there are alot more things you need to explore...
I belive U.P.& L. Has some info you may want to look into in regards to tieing into their system. Im assumeing that who your dealing with. Then you will need permits. Inspections. Etc to tie into their system........
