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 resident to utilize the sun to power daily life: running your air conditioner, washing clothes, viewing TELEVISION, cooking dinner. All while lowering 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, lots of homeowners discover that the convenience, special features, and cost savings of owning a solar power system are a lot more alluring.

Top 10 Benefits of Solar Energy

#1 Significantly minimize or perhaps remove your electric expenses

Whether you're a house owner, business, or not-for-profit, electricity expenses can comprise a big portion of your monthly expenditures. With a solar panel system, you'll create complimentary power for your system's entire 25+ year lifecycle. Even if you don't produce 100 percent of the energy you take in, solar will minimize your utility costs and you'll still save a lot of cash.

#2 Make a great return on your 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 considerable electrical energy expense cost savings, the average American property owner settles their solar panel system in 7 to eight years and sees an ROI of 20 percent or more.

#3 Secure against increasing energy costs

One of the most clear cut benefits of solar panels is the capability to hedge energy rates. In the previous 10 years, residential electrical power rates have actually increased by an average of 3 percent each year. By buying a solar energy system now, you can fix your electricity rate and secure versus unpredictable boosts in electrical energy expenses. If you're a company or house owner with fluctuating capital, going solar also assists you much better forecast and manage your expenses.

#4 Boost your home worth

Several studies have discovered that homes equipped with solar energy systems have greater residential or commercial property values and offer more quickly than non-solar houses. Appraisers are significantly taking solar installations into factor to consider as they value homes at the time of a sale, and as property buyers end up being more educated about solar, demand for residential or commercial 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 a crucial part of attaining energy independence in the United States. By increasing our capacity to create electricity from the sun, we can likewise insulate our country from price changes in international energy markets.

#6 Develop jobs and assist your local economy

According to The Solar Structure, the solar industry added jobs at a rate nearly 12 times faster than the total U.S. economy in 2015, representing 1.2 percent of all jobs in the nation. This growth is expected to continue. Due to the fact that solar-related jobs tend to be higher paying and can not be outsourced, they are a substantial factor to the United States economy.

#7 Protect the environment

Solar is an excellent method to reduce your carbon footprint. Structures are accountable for 38 percent of all carbon emissions in the United States, and going solar can considerably decrease that number. A normal residential photovoltaic panel system will get rid of three to 4 loads 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 very important components of a company's culture and values. They also produce bottom line outcomes. Increasingly, consumers and neighborhoods are recognizing and rewarding businesses that opt to run responsibly. Organisations are finding that "green" qualifications are a powerful driver of consumer purchasing decisions, developing goodwill and improving service outcomes.

#9 Start Conserving from Day 1

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

Lots of homeowners decide to fund their solar panels with one of the "pay-as-you-go" financing options. This means that a third-party business-- the solar company-- owns the solar system and looks after setup, maintenance, tracking and repairs. You simply pay the solar service provider for electricity-- less than you would've paid the energy business.

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

#10. Solar is a Secure Financial investment

The energy companies are well-known for their fluctuating and unreliable electricity prices. There is plainly an upward pattern.

With solar panels and basic math, we can compute just how much electricity will be generated, and most importantly, at exactly what cost, for at least the next Twenty Years (fixed energy expenses).

Frequently Asked Questions

Why Dont The Solar Companies Start Manufacturing Safe Mirrors For Reflecting Much More Warm Sunlight Into Liv?
I Found Out That There Is Safe Mirrors Already Available That Anyone Can Buy And Mount In Our Yards Or Certain Suitable Locations To Reflect Much More Sunlight Toward Our Living Quarters Of Homes And Apartments.. Those Safe Mirrors Are Commonly Bought For Certain Places Like Gymansiums, Children Centers , Schools, Etc.. Those Mirrors Are Shatterproof And They Are Also Useful For Our Solar Energy Programs .. Why Are We So Focused Or Tunnel Visioned Toward Photovoltaics As If Pvs Is The Only Way We Can Harness Solar Energy ? Mirrors Reflect Over 90% Of Sunlight And They Can Be Trained To Point Toward Windows, Sliding Glass Doors Or Even Over Skylights To Heat Indoors.. We Can Also Use Special Solar Furnaces That Can Receive Concentrated Sunlight From Mirrors. Why Arent We Starting Using Such Mirrors To Help Cut Down Our Dependence On Natural Gas, Heating Oil, Or Electricity From Coal And Nuclear ,Etc Whenever The Sun Is Shining. We Can Add Automatic Sun Tracking Devices To Do The Constant Adjustments Themselves Without Any Of Us Having To Trot Outside To Readjust Them As The Sun Moves Across The Sky.. Sure, Suntracking Devices Has To Be Computerized Based On Gps And Stuff To Suit Everybody'S Own Location. This Is Not A Simple Thing To Make Which Means It Requires Manufacturers To Do So.. Why Is Our Manufacturers Still Sitting On Hands Or Even Worse Our Government Doing Nothing With Tax Credits For Such Wonderful Non-Existentail Products That We Can Have Right Now... Are We Too Overprotective Of Our Fossil Fuel Industries??? Investors Still Believe That Fossil Fuel Producers Is The Only Energy Providers We Need For The Forseeable Future Despite The Increased Potential Of Environmental Damage That Will Happpen Like In Arctic Ocean Or Other Senstive Locations That They Are Now After.. Should We Stop The Pace Of Our &Quot;Crazy&Quot; Fossil Fuel Producers With Solar Mirrors That Are Powerful Enough To Start Taking Lunch Money Away From Them.. We Should Stop Being So Soft On Fossil Fuel Investors And Start Giving Them A Run For Their Money!! Should We ? Safe Mirrors Are A Very Incredibly Powerful Energy Source In Terms Of Home Heating That You Traditionally Receive From Your Central Furnace Or Wall Heaters Or Even Fireplaces ... Safe Mirrors Are Very Incredible !!

Sorry, I'm not about to read through all that. Basically, a window or three is enough to light a room. Look up at the sun- it hurts your eyes. Same thing would happen with a mirror reflecting sunlight. You're right that PV is not any good for heating, unless it's used to power a geothermal heat pump. Solar thermal hot water heaters are the accepted way of harvesting heat from the sun for heating buildings.

Why Don'T Hot Countries Make Use Of Their Potential Solar Energy?
I'Ve Read That Some Areas With Temperate/Cold Climates Have Built Solar Energy Stations While Sunny Countries As Africa, Egypt And Mexico Still Depend On Other Sources. Why Is That? Is Solar Energy Unreliable? Thanks In Advance.

In many places you will find solar panels being used, even in remote African villages, they are simple affairs usually a 10W panel charging a car battery and used in conjunction with 12V appliances (often radios) and lights. The cost of a full solar set up is too high in most cases, the inverters, the battery banks and big panels are beyond the reach of most.
Solar energy is slowly being used more and more. On a large scale using solar for electricity production on a power station scale is fairly new technology and is still quite expensive, many countries invest in hydro systems. Solar power is like wind power very good but it needs a lot of cells or a lot of wind turbines to produce the same output as more conventional electric productions methods.

If Everyone Drove An Electric Car, Would Windmills Produce Enough Energy To Charge Them?
Or Will The 0% Emissions From The Car Be A Moot Point Due To The Production Of Electricity To Charge Them?

Theres a guy on youtube that charges his electric car by solar panels, so I think it actually would, that with solar panel combination. He charges his car every night for free, and he hasn't had to pay for anything except upkeep.

This isn't the exact video, but its the same guy, just look at the videos in his channel, he loves his RAV4-EV

Found the exact video, its kind of techy but its interesting.

Whats A Better Job, Wind Power Technician Or Solar? More Pay Etc?
I Was Thinking About Getting A Certificate In Renewable Energy. . I Was Wondering If I Should Focus On Wind Or Solar. Which One Has A Better Future And Pays More? Also Is Installing/Maintaining A Wind Turbine Harder To Learn Then Solar? Maybe I Can Learn Both But Focus On The Harder Of The Two For My Classes And Learn The Other One On My Own. If Anyone Has Some Insight Or Has Done These Things Id Like To Know What They Think

Wind requires a lot more maintenance compared to solar. With solar technology, there are no moving parts. Therefore, typically you complete a solar installation and do not have to return to the site for maintenance. Wind, on the other hand, requires a large amount of regular maintenance. I'm sorry, but I don't think I can give you information on the salary for a career in wind vs. solar.

I think solar installations will be more prevalent in the future so I would place my bets on solar if I were you.

How Does Solar Panels Save Energy?
Discription How Does Solar Panels Save Energy

Solar panels don't save energy, they just utilize a different source of energy. To the extent that it replaces energy from sources which are limited themselves (such as fossil fuels), solar energy does save those resources.* The main benefits of solar energy are environmental in the sense that it is nonpolluting,* but using solar energy doesn't reduce actual power consumption.

*Excludes environmental costs of producing the solar panels themselves, but these are much smaller than the environmental benefits of solar vs. fossil fuel (which has infrastructure costs of its own).
