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 utilize the sun to power daily life: running your a/c unit, washing clothing, enjoying TV, cooking dinner. All while decreasing your carbon footprint, and without burning nonrenewable fuel sources or putting a strain on the electrical grid. And while the ecological benefits of solar power are significant, lots of residents discover that the convenience, special features, and expense savings of owning a solar power system are a lot more alluring.

Leading Advantages of Solar Energy

#1 Significantly decrease or even remove your electric expenses

Whether you're a house owner, company, or nonprofit, electricity costs can comprise a large portion of your month-to-month expenditures. With a solar panel system, you'll generate free power for your system's entire 25+ year lifecycle. Even if you do not produce One Hundred Percent of the energy you take in, solar will lower your energy bills and you'll still conserve a great deal of loan.

#2 Make an excellent return on your financial investment

Solar panels aren't a cost-- they are among the very best methods to invest, with returns matching those of more standard investments like stocks and bonds. Thanks to substantial electrical energy bill cost savings, the average American homeowner pays off their photovoltaic panel system in 7 to eight years and sees an ROI of 20 percent or more.

#3 Protect versus increasing energy expenses

One of the most clear cut benefits of photovoltaic panels is the capability to hedge energy rates. In the previous 10 years, domestic electrical energy prices have gone up by an average of three percent each year. By purchasing a solar energy system now, you can repair your electricity rate and secure versus unpredictable boosts in electrical energy costs. If you're a company or property owner with rising and falling money flow, going solar also helps you much better forecast and handle your expenses.

#4 Boost your house value

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

#5 Increase U.S. energy independence

The sun is a near-infinite source of energy and a key element of attaining energy independence in the United States. By increasing our capability to generate electrical power from the sun, we can also insulate our nation from cost variations in global energy markets.

#6 Develop jobs and help your local economy

According to The Solar Foundation, the solar industry added 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 growth is expected to continue. Since solar-related tasks tend to be higher paying and can not be outsourced, they are a considerable factor to the United States economy.

#7 Protect the environment

Solar is an excellent method to minimize your carbon footprint. Buildings are accountable for 38 percent of all carbon emissions in the U.S., and going solar can significantly decrease that number. A typical property solar panel system will get rid of 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 responsibility are very important parts of a company's culture and worths. They also produce bottom line outcomes. Significantly, customers and neighborhoods are recognizing and rewarding businesses that opt to operate responsibly. Services are finding that "green" qualifications are a powerful chauffeur of customer purchasing decisions, developing goodwill and improving business results.

#9 Start Conserving from Day 1

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

Many homeowners opt to fund their solar panels with among the "pay-as-you-go" financing options. This indicates that a third-party company-- the solar service provider-- owns the planetary system and takes care of installation, upkeep, monitoring and repairs. You just 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 Financial investment

The utility companies are notorious for their changing and unreliable electrical energy prices. There is clearly an upward pattern.

With solar panels and easy mathematics, we can determine how much electrical energy will be produced, and most notably, at exactly what cost, for a minimum of the next Twenty Years (fixed energy costs).

Financing

Frequently Asked Questions

What Are Some Good Things About Nuclear Energy?
Im Doing A Group Debate Tomorrow, About Why You Should Use Nuclear Energy As Opposed To Fossil Fuels, Hydroelectric, And Solar Energy. I Will Be Presenting Our Opening Statement, And Any Good Things To Include Would Be A Great Help.

Fossil fuels always release more pollutants, including CO2 if you consider that a pollutant. Hydroelectric electricity has limited availability, and it's a resource that is pretty much tapped out - every river which can be dammed for electricity already is. Solar energy is expensive, far more expensive than anything else. There is a lot of variation is solar panels, but it often involves rare earth elements, which limits the total numbers of panels which could be produced (at a number too low to matter). Solar energy is also not very energy dense. The total land it would take to capture the same amount of energy using solar as can be generated using nuclear is tremendous. States worth of land. Unlike oil, we have a lot of uranium locally, and the other nation with big resources is Australia who we're on pretty good terms with. And if we had some modern reactors, there would be much less nuclear waste produced. In fact, some of the new plants can eat material which was previously considered waste.

Is It Possible To Combine Solar And Geothermal Energy For Residence In The State Of Maryland?
What About Creating A Hybrid Of Solar, Geothermal, Wind Energy?

I have both solar electric and solar hot water panels and they are awesome. You can get a wind map to see if you are in the right area for a turbine. I don't know a lot about geothermal. Consult the green companies in your area and make sure they all know about your plans in completion so there is no overlapping. It will be expensive! Good luck.

Solar Energy?
We Have To Conduct An Experiment Regarding Conversion Of Energy...It Involves Converting Solar Energy To Electrical Energy...We Were Given Solar Plats...How The Experiment Could Be Conducted And What Could Be The Reasonable Variables??

Solar panels are semiconductor devices that sensitive to electromagnetic radiation. The amount of energy harvested will be proportional to the incident solar radiation. The incident flux will depend upon the time of day, angle of elevation of the panel, the direction of the panel, and shade from clouds or vegetation. The sensitivity of the device will depend upon the temperature and wavelength. There are too many variables to control everything outside of a lab environment, so I would advise working with those that you can control - specifically the direction and angle of elevation of the panels. These can be calculated based on your latitude, but it may be interesting to discover the optimal values for your location by experiment. Good luck.

What Are The Democratic And Republican Views On Solar Energy?
What Are The Democratic And Republican Views On Solar Energy? What Are The Views, And How Do They Affect America? I Need Both Sides, Democratic, And Reublican Views

In reality - Solar Farms are not practical or cost effective - YET!
They need to be subsidized by government. Solar panels only have a 10-20 year life.
When solar panels go below the 8 cent per watt cost - then they will be more cost effective.

Some Democrats don't want their development or wind Farms.
http://www.nytimes.com/2009/12/22/busine...
"AMBOY, Calif. — Senator Dianne Feinstein introduced legislation in Congress on Monday to protect a million acres of the Mojave Desert in California by scuttling some 13 big solar plants and wind farms planned for the region." - - Plus the Kennedy's stopped a wind farm in Massachusetts.

Sustainable Energy...?
What Else Is There Besides Wind, Solar, Geothermal, Tidal, Hydro Is There Any Else???

Biomass
Nuclear

NB: by definition Sustainable Energy is the provision of energy such that it meets the needs of the present without compromising the ability of future generations to meet their needs.
