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 everyday life: running your a/c, cleaning clothing, seeing TV, cooking dinner. All while lowering your carbon footprint, and without burning nonrenewable fuel sources or putting a pressure on the electrical grid. And while the environmental advantages of solar power are substantial, many residents find that the convenience, unique features, and expense savings of owning a solar power system are even more enticing.

Top 10 Benefits of Solar Energy

#1 Significantly decrease and even remove your electrical expenses

Whether you're a house owner, business, or nonprofit, electrical power expenses can comprise a large portion of your monthly expenses. With a solar panel system, you'll create totally free power for your system's whole 25+ year lifecycle. Even if you don't produce 100 percent of the energy you take in, solar will lower your energy costs and you'll still save a great deal of cash.

#2 Earn a terrific return on your financial investment

Photovoltaic 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 substantial electrical power expense savings, the typical American property owner settles their solar panel system in 7 to eight years and sees an ROI of 20 percent or more.

#3 Secure against rising energy expenses

Among the most clear cut advantages of solar panels is the capability to hedge utility costs. In the previous 10 years, residential electricity costs have increased by approximately three percent yearly. By purchasing a solar energy system now, you can repair your electrical power rate and safeguard against unpredictable increases in electricity costs. If you're a service or homeowner with changing capital, going solar likewise assists you much better forecast and manage your costs.

#4 Increase your home worth

Numerous research studies have actually discovered that houses geared up with solar energy systems have higher residential or commercial property worths and sell quicker than non-solar homes. Appraisers are increasingly taking solar setups into consideration as they value houses at the time of a sale, and as property buyers end up being more informed about solar, demand for properties equipped with solar panel systems will continue to grow.

#5 Boost U.S. energy independence

The sun is a near-infinite source of energy and a crucial component of attaining energy self-reliance in the United States. By increasing our capability to produce electrical energy from the sun, we can also insulate our nation from rate fluctuations in international energy markets.

#6 Create jobs and assist your local economy

According to The Solar Foundation, the solar industry included jobs at a rate almost 12 times faster than the general U.S. economy in 2015, representing 1.2 percent of all jobs in the country. This growth is anticipated 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 Secure the environment

Solar is an excellent method to lower your carbon footprint. Structures are accountable for 38 percent of all carbon emissions in the United States, and going solar can considerably reduce that number. A typical property solar panel system will remove three to four tons of carbon emissions each year-- the equivalent of planting over 100 trees yearly.

#8 Show your commitment to sustainability

Sustainability and corporate social duty are necessary elements of an organization's culture and values. They likewise produce bottom line results. Significantly, customers and neighborhoods are acknowledging and rewarding services that select to operate properly. Organisations are finding that "green" credentials are a powerful driver of customer buying decisions, creating goodwill and enhancing organisation outcomes.

#9 Start Saving from Day 1

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

Many homeowners choose to fund their photovoltaic panels with one of the "pay-as-you-go" financing alternatives. This suggests that a third-party company-- the solar provider-- owns the solar system and looks after setup, upkeep, monitoring and repair works. You simply pay the solar service provider for electrical energy-- less than you would've paid the energy company.

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

#10. Solar is a Secure Investment

The energy business are notorious for their fluctuating and undependable electricity rates. There is clearly an upward pattern.

With photovoltaic panels and easy math, we can compute what does it cost? electricity will be generated, and most notably, at exactly what rate, for at least the next 20 years (repaired energy expenses).

Frequently Asked Questions

With Everyone Thinking Green...How Green Are Solar Panels?
Can Solar Panels Be Recycled? What About The Manufacturing Of These Panels Is It Done In An Eco-Friendly Way?

Most of the early panels were not very green. They were not very efficient and did not have a real long life span. The newer one are getting much better and there are several companies have cropped up that rebuild many different kinds of panels. Some of these newer panels have a life span in excess of 30 years and are much easier to maintain. The biggest problem with solar systems is that they are not kept clean and loose efficiency. If interested in setting up a system for your self, Please be very careful who you have do the work and what system you buy. There are many companies out there that are just trying to make a quick buck at your expense.

Why Are Semiconductors Use For Solar Panels?
I'M Wondering On What About Semi-Conductors That Make Them Ideal For Solar Panels

To answer this question, one must first understand that electricity consists of free moving charges such as electrons in metal wire that are induced in move in a certain direction in the presence of an applied electric field. There are three (basic) types of electrical material -- insulators, conductors, and semiconductors. Insulators don't conduct electricity because they have no free charges that can move under an applied electric field. Conductors such as metals are just the opposite -- they have a "sea" of free electrons that can be made to move in an applied electric field. Semiconductors are materials that are neither good conductors or good insulators -- they can conduct electricity but only poorly unless you introduce free charges (electrons or holes) into the material by doping or by shining light onto them. Shining light on a semiconductor frees electrons in the material. Then, when an electric field is applied, the introduced charges can move creating a current.

Solar Panels?
Has There Been Any Break Throughs In Solar Panels? And If Not What Is Taking So Long To Make This A Viable Source Of Energy For Humans!

Production of solar panels has been growing at an annual rate of 40% per year for the last 5 years. That means the Solar industry is more than 7X larger in 2006 than it was in 2000.

Solar panels are now consuming more silicon than all other electronic uses combined. That has actually caused a world wide silicon shortage that is temporarily limiting solar panel growth. Even at these astronomic growth rates it will take several decades for the solar industry to grow big enough to supply most of our power. Electrical generation in the world is one of its largest industries if not the largest it took 100 years to create the existing electrical industry. Creating a brand new world's-largest-industry, which is what solar will become, will take some time.

There are literally dozens of new companies working madly on new types of solar panels. One in particular Nano Solar was just funded with $100 million dollars to build a new production facility that will increase the worlds production of solar panels by almost 25%. There are many other examples I could list.

Back in the 1980's most of the solar panel makers were bought out by ... oil companies. And surprise surprise, solar really stalled in the '80's. Solar did not get back on track until new startup companies started to form about 10 years ago in response to increasing energy prices.

Right now solar power is the fastest growing investment field. Do some research on what is happening now. It is very encouraging.

I Need Help Understanding Solar Panel Wiring?
Are There Any Sites That Explain The Wiring Or Where To Get The Wire Or How To Hook The Wire Together. They Are Making Fortunes On The Plug And Play Panels Just Because They Keep The Information Hidden. It Really Couldn'T Be That Hard. There Are Mc4 Connectors Coming From The Solar Panel...What Do They Hook To? I Need To Get It To Hook To The Charge Controller And Then Hook The Charge Controller To My Batteries. Any Help Would Be Appreciated. Do They Happen To Have A Solar Wiring Kit, Minus The Panel For A Reasonable Price Anywhere. If You Know Anything About This You Could Make A Fortune Assembling Wiring Kits And Selling Them.

The charge controller should have directions with it. The MC4 connector is just a waterproof male / female connector. Hopefully the manufacturer installed male or female MC4s to the solar panel wires. You would then need to crimp the opposite (male or female) inner metal MC4 fitting to your wire and slip the plastic MC4 housing over the inner metal piece- it should snap into place. Follow directions in Source. The tools look expensive.

Can I Increase The Efficiency Of A Solar Panel If I Use A Large Lense In Front Of It?
I Saw Some Videos Where Large Lenses Can Even Melt Iron, I Wonder If I Can Point Some Lense On A Solar Panel To Increase It'S Efficency, Do You Think Is Possible Or Not Worth It? I'Ve Taken In Consideration The Earth'S Rotation, So I Was Planning To Mount The Solar Panel (Together With The Lense/S) On An Automated Base, Which Rotates According To The Hour (Like Sunflowers).

Yes and in the 70's when photovoltaic cells were expensive, they did try that however it also increases the heat generated which decreases the efficiency therefore it is no longer an economic approach with today's cost structures. It's simply not worth it especially since it requires tracking the Sun.

The concept is called CPV for Concentrated Photovoltaics and it is used with expensive multijunction photovoltaic cells which uses materials such as Germanium to capture more than one frequency of light.
