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 ac system, cleaning clothes, viewing TELEVISION, cooking supper. All while decreasing your carbon footprint, and without burning nonrenewable fuel sources or putting a stress on the electrical grid. And while the environmental benefits of solar power are considerable, numerous home owners discover that the benefit, special features, and expense savings of owning a solar power system are even more enticing.

Top Ten Benefits of Solar Energy

#1 Considerably minimize and even eliminate your electric bills

Whether you're a property owner, business, or nonprofit, electrical energy expenses can comprise a large part of your month-to-month expenses. With a photovoltaic panel system, you'll generate totally free power for your system's whole 25+ year lifecycle. Even if you do not produce 100 percent of the energy you take in, solar will decrease your energy bills and you'll still save a lot of loan.

#2 Make a great return on your investment

Solar panels aren't an expenditure-- they're one of the finest methods to invest, with returns measuring up to those of more traditional investments like stocks and bonds. Thanks to considerable electricity expense savings, the average American property owner pays off their solar 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 advantages of solar panels is the ability to hedge energy rates. In the past 10 years, property electricity rates have actually increased by an average of 3 percent each year. By investing in a solar energy system now, you can fix your electrical power rate and safeguard versus unpredictable boosts in electricity expenses. If you're an organisation or house owner with ever-changing money flow, going solar also helps you much better forecast and manage your expenses.

#4 Boost your residential or commercial property value

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

#5 Increase 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 capacity to produce electricity from the sun, we can likewise insulate our country from rate fluctuations in international energy markets.

#6 Create jobs and assist your regional economy

Inning accordance with The Solar Structure, the solar industry added tasks at a rate nearly 12 times faster than the general U.S. economy in 2015, representing 1.2 percent of all tasks in the nation. This development is expected to continue. Because solar-related jobs tend to be higher paying and can not be contracted out, they are a considerable contributor to the U.S. economy.

#7 Protect the environment

Solar is a great way to minimize your carbon footprint. Buildings are accountable for 38 percent of all carbon emissions in the United States, and going solar can considerably reduce that number. A common domestic photovoltaic panel system will get rid of 3 to four lots of carbon emissions each year-- the equivalent of planting over 100 trees each year.

#8 Show your dedication to sustainability

Sustainability and business social duty are necessary components of an organization's culture and worths. They also produce bottom line results. Progressively, consumers and communities are acknowledging and rewarding services that opt to run responsibly. Organisations are finding that "green" credentials are an effective driver of customer buying decisions, developing goodwill and improving service outcomes.

#9 Start Conserving from Day 1

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

Numerous house owners opt to fund their solar panels with among the "pay-as-you-go" funding choices. This indicates that a third-party business-- the solar company-- owns the planetary system and takes care of setup, upkeep, tracking and repairs. You just pay the solar supplier for electricity-- less than you would've paid the utility company.

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

#10. Solar is a Secure Investment

The energy companies are infamous for their varying and unreliable electrical power prices. There is plainly an upward trend.

With solar panels and simple mathematics, we can calculate how much electrical energy will be created, and most importantly, at what cost, for a minimum of the next 20 years (repaired energy expenses).

Frequently Asked Questions

Solar Panels Save Money Right?
So Why Dont' More Pople Use Them? If They Save You Money In The Long Run, Its Like An Investment, Why Wouldn'T You Spend A Little Now To Save In The Future? Or Is There Some Kind Of Catch With Using These Things That I'M Missing?

"The dollar-per-watt ratio is the best way to compare the prices of solar cells. How does this ratio work? If we assume that a solar array costs $500 and generates 100 Watts, the dollar-per-watt ratio is $5.00 per watt. The current best deals on solar cells is around $4.30 per watt.", here's more info if interested

With My Solar Panels During Winter?
How Do I Keep Ice From Building Up On The Surface, And Snow From Accumulating On Them?

Do not put salt on your solar panels. I would not worry with the clear ice because the panels will heat up and melt it same with snow as long as some part of the panel can get sun light. Mine have been covered many times with snow and I just lightly sweep them off just enough to get some of the black cells to show and in a couple of hours they will be clear on their own.

The colder the solar panels are the better they work. And if you live in a snowy area you might want to do a ground mount so you can go sweep without getting on a roof.

Can A Solar Panel Run Without An Inverter? If So, How Effecient Will It Be And For How Long It Might Run?
Public Electric Is Almost Nonexistent In My Country And With Plenty Of Subshine; Sometimes 10 Hours Or More Per Day, I Am Becoming Freak-Up About Solar Panel. Most People Here Use Generators That Are Very Unstable Subsequently Leading To Destruction Of Property.

Yes. The inverter is used convert DC to AC power. You can connect the solar panel to batteries to store power, but to use the power it will be DC only. So it can power on equipment that uses DC. If you want to power things that normally use AC, then you will need to convert to AC, which requires an inverter.

Storing Solar Energy?
If I Install A 250Wp Solar Panel On My House And I Get 10 Hours Of Peak Sunshine (In Theory), How Would I Store This 2.5Kwh? What Type Of Battery Could I Buy So That I Could Run Lights, Fridge, Tv From The Battery. What Sort Of Amps Or Specs Should I Consider? I Know I Need An Inverter For Ac/Dc And Other Stuff, But I Just Need To Know About The Battery.

I know you said "in theory," but most of the question is on practical matters, so I'll answer that way.

A 250 watt peak panel is more likely to deliver about 220 watts, given the way the rating system works for panels. Also, peak sunshine is not the number of hours that the sun is out. Even in the summer in California where I live, when the days are 16 hours long, we only get 6 hours peak sun.

Also count on losing 25% of the energy, just in the inefficiencies of charging and discharging a battery.

Lead-acid batteries are the typical choice for cost reasons. This type of battery will be damaged if allowed to discharge too far, so you probably would not connect a fridge to such a small system, only things that are non-critical, and you could turn off at any time. Either that, or you would have a much larger system.
