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 a/c unit, washing clothes, viewing TELEVISION, cooking supper. All while lowering your carbon footprint, and without burning nonrenewable fuel sources or putting a strain on the electrical grid. And while the environmental advantages of solar power are substantial, lots of property owners discover that the benefit, special features, and expense savings of owning a solar power system are even more enticing.

Leading Advantages of Solar Energy

#1 Considerably reduce or even remove your electrical bills

Whether you're a property owner, company, or nonprofit, electrical power costs can comprise a big portion of your regular monthly expenses. With a solar panel system, you'll generate totally free power for your system's entire 25+ year lifecycle. Even if you don't produce 100 percent of the energy you consume, solar will decrease your energy costs and you'll still save a great deal of money.

#2 Make an excellent return on your investment

Photovoltaic panels aren't a cost-- they are among the best methods to invest, with returns equaling those of more traditional financial investments like stocks and bonds. Thanks to considerable electricity expense cost savings, the typical American house owner settles their photovoltaic panel system in seven to eight years and sees an ROI of 20 percent or more.

#3 Secure versus increasing energy costs

One of the most clear cut benefits of photovoltaic panels is the capability to hedge energy costs. In the past ten years, residential electrical power prices have gone up by an average of 3 percent every year. By investing in a solar energy system now, you can fix your electrical power rate and safeguard versus unforeseeable boosts in electricity costs. If you're a service or homeowner with rising and falling cash flow, going solar likewise helps you much better projection and handle your expenditures.

#4 Increase your home or business worth

Multiple studies have discovered that houses equipped with solar energy systems have higher residential or commercial property worths and sell faster than non-solar homes. Appraisers are significantly taking solar setups into factor to consider as they value houses at the time of a sale, and as property buyers end up being more informed about solar, demand for properties geared up 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 achieving energy self-reliance in the United States. By increasing our capability to generate electrical power from the sun, we can also insulate our nation from cost changes in global energy markets.

#6 Develop jobs and assist your local economy

Inning accordance with The Solar Foundation, the solar market added jobs at a rate almost 12 times faster than the overall 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 higher paying and can not be outsourced, they are a considerable factor to the U.S. economy.

#7 Safeguard the environment

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

#8 Show your commitment to sustainability

Sustainability and corporate social obligation are very important parts of an organization's culture and worths. They likewise produce bottom line results. Progressively, customers and communities are recognizing and rewarding companies that decide to run properly. Organisations are discovering that "green" qualifications are an effective driver of consumer purchasing decisions, creating goodwill and improving organisation outcomes.

#9 Start Saving from Day 1

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

Numerous property owners select to finance their solar panels with among the "pay-as-you-go" financing alternatives. This means that a third-party company-- the solar provider-- owns the planetary system and looks after setup, maintenance, tracking and repairs. You merely pay the solar service provider for electrical power-- less than you would've paid the utility business.

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

#10. Solar is a Secure Investment

The energy companies are infamous for their fluctuating and unreliable electricity costs. There is clearly an upward trend.

With photovoltaic panels and simple math, we can compute what does it cost? electrical energy will be produced, and most importantly, at exactly what price, for a minimum of the next 20 years (fixed energy expenses).

Frequently Asked Questions

What Is The Cost And Benefit Of Using Solar Panels As An Energy Source For My Home?
Specifically, How Much Does It Cost To Purchase, Install, And Maintain A Solar Panel? How Much Of My Energy Can I Tap Out Of It? I Live In Phoenix, Arizona. It Supposedly Rains Four Days A Year Here.

I'm in the middle of putting in solar/wind to offset the power needs of a 75 unit condo in St Thomas.

Cut to the chase. Solar systems, with batteries to store power for use at night and inverters to change battery power to 120v cost about $7 a watt installed

in Phoenix you'll get about 30 watts a square foot about 10 hours a day

a 1000W panel, at $7,000 installed will run 10 100 watt light bulbs or (maybe)) an energy efficient refrigerator.

Why Aren'T Solar Panels Being Advertised Or Promoted?

It is expensive, but with new technology the prices should be coming down. It is up to grass roots to promote solar panels, and really make them main stream. I see many buildings in Florida with "wasted" roof space for solar panels. I think that big businesses whose power bills soar into the thousands a month, should be required to install them to off set their power usage over 10 years it would pay for the installation of the panels with the reduced power bills that they would have. They are being short sighted to say that it is to expensive.

Why Is Solar Power So Important For The Success Of The International Space Station?
Looking For Opinions And/Or Facts Related To This For A Project.

For electric power. Just as it is so important for the success of our nation - and the rest of the planet, the same reason. Our civilization would collapse without electric power.

Solar power is easily available for the space station, no clouds - ever - to block the sun's 'free' energy. And, many nations on our planet use increasing amounts of solar power - every day. Australia is very big on solar. here in Arizona there are many.. many homes & businesses with solar panels on their rooftops. There is enough solar energy pouring down on our deserts to generate power for the entire planet!

How Do Solar Energy Panels Work?
If The Energy Is Obtained From The Sun, Is It Obtained From The Heat Or Uv Rays Of The Sun? Also, After It Obtains The Energy, How Does It Transfer That Into Usable Energy? Lastly, Is It Immediately Usable Or Is It Stored Until Its Use Is Required?

Solar electric panels (photovoltaic panels) use the light of the sun to produce electricity. They are made out of semiconductor materials like silicon (the same stuff that's in your computer), which is treated so it's positively charged on one side and negatively charged on the other.

When light energy strikes this "solar cell", electrons are knocked loose from the semiconductor material, and at this point they can be captured in the form of an electric current so they can be put to work.

Solar panels produce DC electricity which must be converted to AC by a solar power inverter before it can be used to power household appliances.

If you have a battery bank, the power can be stored for later use.

How Do You Mount A Solar Panel To The Roof Of A Motor Home?
I Just Bought A 100Watt Pv Panel And Was Curious How This Is Done. I Don'T Want It Flying Off The Roof When I'M Going 75Mph Down The Freeway. I Also Don'T Want To Pay $100 For A Few Pieces Of Aluminum. Some Of Those Mount Prices Are Highway Robbery! Am I Supposed To Put A Board Under The Panel For Strength? They Seem Very Fragile. I'D Appreciate Your Help. Thanks For Reading.

Well, you can try to improvise something, and if you fail your $500 solar panel is going to fly off your RV like a kite, potentially decapitating someone behind you and resulting in a criminal negligence lawsuit that might bankrupt you for the rest of your life.

Or you can spend the $100 for the manufacturer-recommended mounting brackets, then have it professionally installed, and rest easy. The $100 is not just for the materials, but the design and testing to ensure it is safe, and the liability in case it does fail.

I'm not saying its impossible to come up with a good DIY mounting system. But if you have to ask, maybe you're better off going with a professional installation?

If not, at least do us the courtesy of posting a link to your rig so we know when to watch out for flying solar panels. :-)
