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 daily life: running your a/c, cleaning clothing, watching TV, cooking supper. All while lowering 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 significant, numerous property owners find that the convenience, distinct functions, and cost savings of owning a solar power system are even more enticing.

Leading Benefits of Solar Energy

#1 Considerably reduce and even eliminate your electrical expenses

Whether you're a homeowner, service, or nonprofit, electrical power expenses can comprise a big part of your regular monthly costs. With a photovoltaic panel system, you'll create complimentary power for your system's whole 25+ year lifecycle. Even if you do not produce One Hundred Percent of the energy you take in, solar will decrease your utility expenses and you'll still save a lot of money.

#2 Earn a terrific return on your financial investment

Photovoltaic panels aren't an expenditure-- they're one of the finest methods to invest, with returns matching those of more traditional financial investments like stocks and bonds. Thanks to significant electricity costs savings, the typical 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 expenses

Among the most clear cut benefits of solar panels is the ability to hedge utility prices. In the past ten years, property electrical energy prices have actually increased by an average of three percent every year. By investing in a solar energy system now, you can repair your electricity rate and secure against unpredictable increases in electrical power expenses. If you're a company or property owner with rising and falling cash circulation, going solar likewise helps you much better projection and handle your expenditures.

#4 Boost your property value

Numerous research studies have actually discovered that houses equipped with solar energy systems have greater property values and sell more quickly than non-solar houses. Appraisers are progressively taking solar installations 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 equipped with photovoltaic 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 attaining energy independence in the United States. By increasing our capacity to create electrical energy from the sun, we can also insulate our nation from price changes in worldwide energy markets.

#6 Develop jobs and help your local economy

According to The Solar Foundation, the solar industry included jobs at a rate almost 12 times faster than the total U.S. economy in 2015, representing 1.2 percent of all tasks in the nation. This development is expected to continue. Since solar-related tasks have the tendency to be higher paying and can not be contracted out, they are a considerable factor to the United States economy.

#7 Secure the environment

Solar is a terrific way to minimize your carbon footprint. Buildings are responsible for 38 percent of all carbon emissions in the United States, and going solar can substantially decrease that number. A common property photovoltaic panel system will get rid of 3 to 4 lots of carbon emissions each year-- the equivalent of planting over 100 trees each year.

#8 Demonstrate your dedication to sustainability

Sustainability and business social responsibility are essential elements of an organization's culture and worths. They likewise produce bottom line results. Progressively, customers and neighborhoods are acknowledging and rewarding organisations that opt to run properly. Services are discovering that "green" credentials are an effective motorist of customer acquiring choices, producing goodwill and improving company outcomes.

#9 Start Conserving from Day 1

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

Many property owners opt to finance their solar panels with one of the "pay-as-you-go" financing options. This implies that a third-party company-- the solar service provider-- owns the solar system and takes care of setup, maintenance, tracking and repair works. You just pay the solar service provider for electricity-- less than you would've paid the utility business.

Since 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 well-known for their fluctuating and undependable electricity prices. There is clearly an upward pattern.

With photovoltaic panels and basic math, we can compute how much electrical power will be generated, and most notably, at what rate, for a minimum of the next Twenty Years (repaired energy expenses).

Frequently Asked Questions

Why Are Solar Panels And Geothermal Energy Sources So Expensive?
Are The Prices Artificially High So That The Oil And Coal Companies Do Not Lose Money? And Is There Anything That Can Be Done To Bring The Prices Down?

Because they are not in high demand. People need to buy into it to drop the price.

How Do Solar Pannels Work?
I Dont Want A Link To A Website! Sorry To Be Blunt Lol :) I Have Tried To Go On Websites And Make Sense Of It But It Makes No Sense. Please Just Simplify Something For Me... But I Need The Question Answered In Full If Possible? X

There are two types of solar panels.

#1 is passive solar panels. Under a pane of glass (or plastic) is a long tube that runs back and forth. the tube is a flat black because flat (dull) black absorbs heat the best.
The heat of the sun is transferred from the hot pipe to the fluid in the pipe. the fluid is pumped down to a storage tank and the heat is stored in this tank.

#2 is active solar panel turns, the sun's radiation energy into electricity.
These are photovoltaic cells--
photovoltaic of, concerned with, or producing electric current or voltage caused by electromagnetic radiation, esp visible light from the sun.
Photovoltaics is the direct conversion of light into electricity at the atomic level. Some materials exhibit a property known as the photoelectric effect that causes them to absorb photons of light and release electrons. When these free electrons are captured, an electric current results that can be used as electricity.

How Can A Car That Runs On Solar Panels Help The Environment?
Other Than Not Polluting The Air

The technology has not yet been developed to have a practical car that's run 100% from solar power. For one thing, you wouldn't be able to drive it at night, which is a big concern for most people. It may be possible at some point in the future to have solar panels used to supplement a battery powered car, but I doubt you'll ever see a 100% solar powered car in public use.

Why Is My Air Conditioner Not Keeping My House Cool?
Ok Heres The Scoop. I Have 2 6 Ton Central Air Units Tied Into 32 Solar Panels (Keeps My Energy Bill Super Low Btw). Anyways My Home Is Only 1100 Sqft. So Only One Of These Should Keep My Home Cool But They Dont I Dont Get It. Their Are No Leaks In The Ductwork. I'Ve Had 3 Techs Come Out They All Said That Both Units Are Blowing Air Out The Vents At 52°. But My Temps Inside Wont Drop Below 80° During The Day. The Front Of My Home Faces Due West ( To Allow For Full Day Solar Power No Trees To Block Sun Accept On North And South Side Of House Maybe I Should Have My Insulation Checked To See If I Need Thicker Insulation Since My Home Recieves Full Sun All Day. Any Thoughts?

First off, I would check the settings to make sure that they are set right (I'm pretty sure you do, but make sure).

Also, have someone check the condition of the system. One or both of the units might have gone bad or the vent parts going through the house might have fallen apart. My house was supposed to have central air, but the guy who installed it didn't do a good job with the vent channels behind the walls and the upstairs doesn't get any. It would take ripping out my walls to fix it and that would cost a lot for me.

Also, don't forget the massive heat wave hitting the US lately, I have 3 air conditioners going in my house with 2 in the main living room area. My house is small, too, but they can barely keep the temp around 75. Chances are that central air systems are not having a lot of luck, either.

What Size Solar Panel Do I Need To Charge A Car Batt?
I Have Two 12V Gel Batteries That I Would Like To Take Camping With Me For Power. What Size Solar Panel I Need To Charge And Maintain These Batteries?

We kind of need the specs on the batteries to figure that out, but lets just say each battery is 125 AH (amp hours) so, 125AH+125AH=250AH, therefore, to charge those batteries in a reasonable amount of time, lets say 14 hours, you will need a panel that puts out around 250 watts. I would suggest using only 1 battery, because a 250 watt panel is not cheap!

You can however build your own panel, its fairly easy, if you have soldering skills.
