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 clothes, enjoying TV, cooking dinner. All while decreasing your carbon footprint, and without burning fossil fuels or putting a pressure on the electrical grid. And while the ecological benefits of solar power are substantial, numerous residents find that the benefit, unique features, and expense savings of owning a solar power system are much more enticing.

Top 10 Advantages of Solar Energy

#1 Significantly minimize or even remove your electric costs

Whether you're a homeowner, organization, or not-for-profit, electricity costs can make up a big portion of your month-to-month expenditures. With a photovoltaic panel system, you'll produce free power for your system's whole 25+ year lifecycle. Even if you don't produce 100 percent of the energy you take in, solar will decrease your energy bills and you'll still save a great deal of loan.

#2 Earn an excellent return on your financial investment

Solar panels aren't an expenditure-- they're one of the finest methods to invest, with returns measuring up to those of more conventional investments like stocks and bonds. Thanks to significant electricity expense savings, the average American house owner settles their photovoltaic panel system in 7 to eight years and sees an ROI of 20 percent or more.

#3 Protect versus increasing energy costs

Among the most clear cut benefits of photovoltaic panels is the ability to hedge utility rates. In the previous 10 years, residential electrical energy rates have actually increased by approximately three percent yearly. By buying a solar energy system now, you can repair your electricity rate and safeguard versus unpredictable boosts in electricity costs. If you're a business or property owner with changing capital, going solar also helps you better forecast and handle your expenditures.

#4 Boost your home value

Multiple research studies have actually discovered that houses geared up with solar energy systems have greater home worths and offer quicker than non-solar homes. Appraisers are significantly taking solar installations into consideration as they value houses at the time of a sale, and as property buyers end up being more educated about solar, need for homes 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 an essential element of achieving energy self-reliance in the United States. By increasing our capacity to generate electrical power 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 market added tasks at a rate almost 12 times faster than the overall U.S. economy in 2015, representing 1.2 percent of all tasks in the nation. This growth is anticipated to continue. Since solar-related jobs tend to be higher paying and can not be outsourced, they are a significant contributor to the United States economy.

#7 Safeguard the environment

Solar is an excellent way to minimize your carbon footprint. Buildings are accountable for 38 percent of all carbon emissions in the U.S., and going solar can significantly reduce that number. A normal residential solar panel system will get rid of three to four lots of carbon emissions each year-- the equivalent of planting over 100 trees annually.

#8 Demonstrate your dedication to sustainability

Sustainability and corporate social obligation are crucial elements of an organization's culture and values. They also produce bottom line outcomes. Significantly, consumers and neighborhoods are acknowledging and rewarding businesses that pick to operate properly. Businesses are discovering that "green" credentials are a powerful driver of consumer buying decisions, developing goodwill and improving business outcomes.

#9 Start Conserving from Day 1

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

Many homeowners select to fund their photovoltaic panels with among the "pay-as-you-go" financing options. This suggests that a third-party business-- the solar company-- owns the solar system and looks after setup, maintenance, tracking and repair works. You merely pay the solar provider for electrical energy-- less than you would've paid the utility business.

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

#10. Solar is a Secure Financial investment

The energy business are notorious for their changing and undependable electricity prices. There is clearly an upward pattern.

With solar panels and basic math, we can compute how much electrical power will be generated, and most importantly, at what price, for at least the next 20 years (repaired energy costs).

Frequently Asked Questions

Solar Energy For Home - Does My Solar Electric System Have To Include Batteries?
I'm Going For A Solar Electric System In My Home To Reduce Energy Bills And Save Money.

Batteries are required only if you want backup power in case of a utility outage. Solar energy for home use is basically meant to be 'on-grid' - i.e., connected with your utility supplier to reduce dependence on them, but not completely eliminate them.

This means, you have 'both' your solar electric system and your utility-supplied power available at all times, working in tandem. Any excess energy that your system generates is sent back to the utility company, which results in you getting lower bills. The savings potential through this method can be both huge and lifelong.

Why Is Solar Power Important?
Reasons?

Solar power allows life as we know it on earth to exsist. In the beginning of the earth's exsistance it provided the heat nessecary for bacteria and cellular organisms in the oceans to survive. As they evolved it allowed larger animals to exsist. Plant life on the earth survives by a process called photosynthesis in which they take in the energy provided by the sun and the carbon dioxide gasses in the air and produce oxygen. Oxygen is essential to animal life. So without the sun providing the energy it does, we would have never even began to exsist in our world.

Solar power on a more modern standpoint allows for energy to be collected and used without poluting the earth with the waste material that all fossil fuels leave behind when burned or used for powersources.

How Much Do You Know About Solar Energy?
Http://En.Wikipedia.Org/Wiki/Solar_Energy

Hi, Solar energy is God's power supply for the earth. It causes plants to grow to give us food and fuel. It causes the temperature difference in the air to make wind.Without it we would freeze over very soon. It is atomic radiation energy. God put layers and the atmosphere around us or we could not live here. The sun gives light too or we would be in the dark. Seems God thought of everything for us. Pity we wouldn't think of him and thank Him for the wonderful place He made. nev r

Forms Of Energy..Homework Help.?
How Many Forms Of Energy Are There..? Kinetic Potential Gravitational Electrical Heat Sound... Etc..

energy cn be kinetic and potential... it has many types, geothermal energy(energy from the land) solar energy(energy from the sun) radial energy(energy formed by a radiation) hydroelectric energy(energy from the water) Heat energy, lunar energy (energy from the moon) biomass and biofuels. electrical energy, radiant energy, chemical energy, fossil fuels, wind energy, mechanical energy

What Other Ways Can I Save My Solar Power For Night Use Without Batteries?
Anything I Can Do During The Day When I Have Power Coming In I Do, But The Nights Are The Hard Part. I Charge My Laptop During The Day, Heavily Insulate My Freezer And Run Excess Electricity Into It During The Day To Freeze Jugs Of Water In It, Place Jugs Of Ice In My Fridge At Night, Pump Water To A Large Tank Upstairs In The Morning To Be Heated By Sun Through Solar Water Heater Tubes In The Day And Bring It Downstairs Through Baseboard Pipes At Night To Keep The House Warm + Hot Water For Showers In The Morning. My Radio Has A Wind Up Generator. I Plan On Getting Led Lights To Run Off A Battery, But Still Am Drawing Some Current From The Grid. Would Like To Get Off Completely Sometime Soon.

Sounds like you've got it well covered today.

If you have the grid there today, have you considered grid-tied solar electric? If you can run the meter backwards during the day, and forward at night, the net effect might be zero energy billed, the same effect as batteries.
