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 air conditioning unit, cleaning clothing, enjoying TV, cooking dinner. All while reducing 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 significant, numerous property owners find that the convenience, distinct features, and expense savings of owning a solar power system are even more enticing.

Top Ten Benefits of Solar Energy

#1 Dramatically lower or even remove your electrical expenses

Whether you're a property owner, service, or nonprofit, electrical power costs can comprise a large portion of your month-to-month costs. With a photovoltaic panel system, you'll generate totally free power for your system's entire 25+ year lifecycle. Even if you do not produce 100 percent of the energy you consume, solar will decrease your utility bills and you'll still conserve a great deal of loan.

#2 Make an excellent return on your investment

Solar panels aren't an expenditure-- they're one of the very best ways to invest, with returns rivaling those of more standard financial investments like stocks and bonds. Thanks to significant electrical energy bill cost savings, the typical American house owner pays off their photovoltaic panel system in seven to 8 years and sees an ROI of 20 percent or more.

#3 Secure versus increasing energy costs

Among the most clear cut benefits of photovoltaic panels is the capability to hedge energy costs. In the past 10 years, domestic electrical energy costs have actually gone up by an average of 3 percent every year. By buying a solar energy system now, you can fix your electricity rate and secure versus unforeseeable boosts in electrical power expenses. If you're a service or property owner with ever-changing cash circulation, going solar also assists you much better forecast and manage your costs.

#4 Increase your home or business value

Several studies have actually discovered that houses equipped with solar energy systems have greater property values and offer 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 property buyers become more educated about solar, need for properties geared up with solar panel systems will continue to grow.

#5 Increase U.S. energy self-reliance

The sun is a near-infinite source of energy and an essential part of achieving energy independence in the United States. By increasing our capacity to produce electrical energy from the sun, we can likewise insulate our country from price variations in worldwide energy markets.

#6 Develop jobs and help your regional economy

Inning accordance with The Solar Structure, the solar market included jobs at a rate nearly 12 times faster than the general U.S. economy in 2015, representing 1.2 percent of all jobs in the nation. This development is anticipated to continue. Since solar-related tasks tend to be greater paying and can not be outsourced, they are a substantial contributor to the U.S. economy.

#7 Safeguard the environment

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

#8 Show your dedication to sustainability

Sustainability and corporate social duty are essential parts of an organization's culture and values. They also produce bottom line results. Increasingly, consumers and neighborhoods are acknowledging and rewarding services that pick to operate responsibly. Businesses are discovering that "green" credentials are an effective chauffeur of customer buying decisions, producing goodwill and improving company results.

#9 Start Saving from Day 1

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

Lots of homeowners opt to finance their photovoltaic panels with among the "pay-as-you-go" funding options. This implies that a third-party business-- the solar service provider-- owns the planetary system and takes care of setup, upkeep, tracking and repairs. You simply pay the solar provider for electricity-- 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 utility companies are notorious for their changing and undependable electrical energy costs. There is clearly an upward trend.

With photovoltaic panels and easy math, we can determine just how much electricity will be produced, and most importantly, at exactly what cost, for at least the next 20 years (fixed energy costs).

Frequently Asked Questions

Why Aren'T Any Us States Using The Ocean As A Main Water Supply?

Greetings. mainly because we have fresh water available in most of the country. only places where water is in short supply are those that are desert, and our deserts do not have oceanfronts, they are far inland. Most reasonable method that I have heard of is the way it is done in Spain. They use solar energy to evaporate sea water and then condense it on the plastic covers on the evaporation tanks. Nearly cost free way to get fresh water out of salt. As for why such plants are not used in California, which has a critical fresh water situation with limited water and a huge population is not really clear. I assume they think they can simply use the Colorado river forever as their source of water, but the river is being drained dry by the heavy use. May well be that ocean front property in California is so expensive that it would not be a money making proposition. And areas that are not as expensive are located far from population centers so shipping would be prohibitive. The solar evaporation and condensation method is also used on small sea going vessels, like ocean going sail boats and a small fresh water making outfit is often included on life rafts now. Solar water distillation is also used in almost all survival situations to get drinkable water from other unusable sources like water that contains alkyls and metals like arsenic, as well as getting water out of plant saps, even from plants that are toxic to humans. Might not smell too well, but one can even use the solar water making principles to distill water out of our own urine and get drinkable water without the minerals and toxic waste that our body passes out in urine.

Why Is Saving Energy Good?
Can Someone Please Give Me Good Reasons, Im Having An Essay And Im Running Out Of Reasons!

The main source of energy is from fossil fuel (aka oil). We burn oil inorder to generate electricity. We also use it to make gasaline. That oil took millions of years of sitting in the earth to be created. The oil doesnt last for ever. Eventually it will be gone !! And we will be screwed. No more electricity. No more cars. no more refridgerators, No more playstation.

Saving energy means strecthing out the the amount of oil that we have left. The amount of oil in the world is quickly diminishing. Some say that we have another 20 years of oil left. Then we are screwed. The government is now pushing for other forms of energy ..like wind, solar, and fuel cells. The most promising and realistic form of energy is nuclear. But until these things are produed on a mass scale...we all need to try our best to conserve energy consumption.

Which Is The Best Way To Eliminate The Nitrogen Oxides From Energy Cogeneration?
Which Is The Best Way To Eliminate The Nitrogen Oxides From Energy Cogeneration? What Do The Industries Use To Do? Which Treatment Do They Usually Use To Minimize Emissions?

The best option is not to utilize energy sources that give off nitrogen oxides as by products. Moving to greener energy sources/renewable energy can help solve the problem. These energy sources do not involve NOx compounds and can help decrease the concentration in the air. Renewable energy includes biofuels, wind and solar energy, and recycling more materials.

Hope this helps.

Cheapest Energy Fuel?
Is The Cheapest Energy Fuel Necessarily The Best Choice In Terms Of Economic, Social, Environmental.

The price of energy is dependent on your location. If you have oil, gas, coal then those would be cheaper. If not then nuclear or wind may be the answer. Ausra has created a manufacturing plant in USA for solar thermal. The current project is 177 MW from 1 square mile of desert. This technology may be the best if other sources are not available.
Electricity can be the cheapest fuel for transport. Electricity can be sourced from coal, nuclear, wind, solar, tidal, gas, geothermal etc. In an electric car the running costs are about 1/10 that of a petrol car.
I have made a car calculator to compare costs.

Why Does Solar Energy Provide Much Of The Fuel We Need In The Future?

Currently, trees and plants are the only things that use solar energy to any appreciable extent.

If oil runs out then we'll need an alternate. At present it does not seem likely that the alternate will be solar. The problems are : -
a) high cost of solar panels
b) low efficiency (for converting sunlight to electricity)
c) can't be used in winter time or at night.
d) high cost of batteries to store electricity.

This requires new technologies, and that requires research money. It is just not happening.
