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 property owner to use the sun to power daily life: running your a/c unit, washing clothing, watching 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 benefits of solar power are significant, lots of home owners find that the benefit, unique functions, and expense savings of owning a solar power system are much more enticing.

Top Ten Advantages of Solar Energy

#1 Considerably reduce or even remove your electrical bills

Whether you're a property owner, company, or not-for-profit, electrical power expenses can make up a big part of your regular monthly expenditures. With a photovoltaic panel system, you'll create 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 minimize your energy bills and you'll still save a great deal of cash.

#2 Earn a great return on your financial investment

Photovoltaic panels aren't an expense-- they're one of the very best methods to invest, with returns matching those of more traditional investments like stocks and bonds. Thanks to significant electrical power costs savings, the average American house owner pays off their solar panel system in 7 to 8 years and sees an ROI of 20 percent or more.

#3 Safeguard against rising energy costs

Among the most clear cut advantages of photovoltaic panels is the ability to hedge energy prices. In the past 10 years, residential electrical power costs have actually increased by approximately three percent yearly. By purchasing a solar energy system now, you can fix your electrical power rate and secure versus unpredictable increases in electrical power expenses. If you're an organisation or property owner with rising and falling cash circulation, going solar also helps you much better projection and handle your expenditures.

#4 Boost your home worth

Multiple studies have found that houses equipped with solar energy systems have higher residential or commercial property worths and offer quicker than non-solar houses. Appraisers are progressively taking solar setups into consideration as they value homes at the time of a sale, and as homebuyers become more informed about solar, demand for homes equipped with photovoltaic panel systems will continue to grow.

#5 Boost U.S. energy self-reliance

The sun is a near-infinite source of energy and a crucial element of attaining energy independence in the United States. By increasing our capacity to produce electricity from the sun, we can likewise insulate our country from rate changes in global energy markets.

#6 Create jobs and help your regional economy

According to The Solar Structure, the solar market 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 country. This development is anticipated to continue. Due to the fact that solar-related tasks tend to be greater paying and can not be contracted out, they are a considerable factor to the U.S. economy.

#7 Safeguard the environment

Solar is a great method to minimize your carbon footprint. Buildings are accountable for 38 percent of all carbon emissions in the U.S., and going solar can substantially reduce that number. A common property solar panel system will eliminate three to 4 lots of carbon emissions each year-- the equivalent of planting over 100 trees every year.

#8 Show your dedication to sustainability

Sustainability and corporate social obligation are necessary parts of a company's culture and worths. They likewise produce bottom line results. Increasingly, customers and neighborhoods are recognizing and rewarding businesses that pick to operate responsibly. Businesses are discovering that "green" credentials are an effective chauffeur of consumer purchasing decisions, creating goodwill and enhancing company results.

#9 Start Saving from Day 1

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

Lots of property owners opt to finance their photovoltaic panels with one of the "pay-as-you-go" funding choices. This implies that a third-party business-- the solar service provider-- owns the planetary system and looks after installation, maintenance, monitoring and repairs. You simply pay the solar provider for electrical power-- 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 Investment

The utility business are infamous for their varying and undependable electrical power prices. There is clearly an upward pattern.

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

Frequently Asked Questions

I Have 50Watt Solar Panel And 80Amp Battery, How Much Time Would It Take To Charge?
I Have 50Watt Solar Panel And 80Amp Battery, How Much Time Would It Take To Charge? And How Much Would The Battery Hold?

The 50w you quote your panel's output, is the maximum possible. The chances are that unless it's a very bright day and you track the sun's rise and fall accurately, you won't get 50w, at least for most of the time.

I'd be cautious and halve the output, as that will (unless you are lucky), be more realistic.It will be a slow, but steady trickle charge, not like a AA/AAA fast charger that takes 1 hour.

It would also depend on the condition of the battery and whether the cells are topped up with distilled water.The charge controller efficiency would also affect it.Too many variables.

If you use a completely new battery, (this goes for any kind of rechargable battery) it takes a few charge/discharge cycles to get the chemical reaction working properly.

Too many things that might affect it.The main ways these things work are by trial and error.

Reality Vs Fantasy: Can I Buy A Sailboat And Go Live Out In The Middle Of The Ocean?
So, I'Ve Got Some Money Saved Up And I'M Thinking About Packing Up My Girlfriend And 2 Dogs, Moving To Florida And Buying A Boat And Just Kinda Be A Beach Bum For A While. Actually, The Idea Is To Put A Mini Recording-Studio On A Boat And Record An Album. #1. The First Question Pertains To The Pricing Of A Used Boat: I'M Not Looking For Something Fast Or Fancy, I'M Looking For A Boat With A Lot Of Space Because Recording Music On My Laptop With A Guitar And Keyboard Is A Big Part Of My Life And I Need To Ensure My Boat Has A Room Separate From My Bedroom To Do This. How Much Can I Realistically Expect To Spend On A Used Boat With This Much Space? I Have A Boat Budget Of Around $20K, But If I Need To Save Up Another Year For A $30K Boat, I'Ll Do So. #2. Is There Any Law That Says You Can'T Cruise Out In The Middle Of The Ocean, Drop Anchor And Stay There As Long As You Like? #3. I Realize You Can'T Just Live Out In The Ocean All The Time. You Have To Dock, Refill Your Gas/Water And Empty Your Sewage & Trash. How Does That Work? Are There Boat Yards Or Something Where You Pay A Monthly Or Annual Rent And Get Use Their Sewage & Water Services? Can You Live At These Places Too? #4. Lastly, My Equipment Probably Uses A Lot Of Electricity And I'M Wondering How Exactly Is Electricity Stored On The Boat And Is It Enough? Thanks!

Can you buy a boat and go live on it "anchored out" in the middle of the ocean? No - that is a fantasy.

1. $30,000 will certainly buy you a great live a-board size vessel with money to spare - but it will not come near buying you enough "space or electric" for a music studio - unless you forget the ocean, forget the "yacht", look for a good used houseboat to keep it at a permanent dock w/electric - that's reality! In addition, you have an entire multitude of issues here. . . living on the water is not a friendly place for electronics. In addition, you will have "sound" issues both inside and outside your vessel (or houseboat). Sound & sound waves across the water will result in a million complaints from your boating neighbors, and it will do so at distances you can't even begin to imagine. Your "studio" will have to be sound proof and humidified.

2. You can not anchor out in the middle of the ocean. . . Simply put, it is miles deep. Besides, with all the wind, waves and swells - you, your girlfriend, and your dogs would be absolutely miserable.

3. You can rent a permanent slip and live on your boat at most any Florida area marina - this way, you have water, sewage dump, and (in your case) more importantly, electricity to take care of your electric needs. But you will have to limit your music volume to within the sound proof walls of your vessel - or your friendly neighborhood boaters will have you kicked out of the marina.

4. For what you describe - your electric solution will be your single biggest expense & problem. You will need to reconsider your "recording studio" if you plan on living on a boat. Electric is stored on your boat via batteries. Batteries are kept charged with a generator and/or solar panels.

PS. To give you an idea: I live on my boat and (for the most part) off the electric grid. I have $2,000 in batteries, $4,000 in solar panels - and that simply keeps by anchor & navigation lights burning when needed, my navigation electronics & VHF radio running, and my cabin lights, laptop, TV & ac going. . . along with my coffee pot, George Foreman grill, toaster oven, & crock-pot working - all of which is used "very sparingly" and only when needed - otherwise, I would be, as the saying goes: "up the creek without a paddle". .

What Amount Of Power From Solar Panels Is Needed To Drive A Weight Up A Height Of 5 Meters. ?
Please Explain Whether This Depends Of The Surface Area Of The Solar/Solar Panels, The Type, Or The Sunlight'S Intensity.

missing a lot of data.

If you have the weight of the weight, then you could calculate energy or work. If you have the time you want it to take to move the 5 meters, then you can get the power.

Of course the power out of a solar array depends on the area, and the type, and the sunlight, and the angle the array makes with the sun.

Without more data, the power can vary from millionths of a watt up to the power to light a city.


edit:
If you want the math, power = mgh/t where m is mass, g is force of gravity, h is height, t is time. So to lift a 10kg weight 5 meters in 1 second takes work of 10*9.8*5 = 490 Joules, and dividing by 1 second gives you 490 watts.

How Is Solar Heating [Resource] Transformed Into A Form Of Energy That We Can Use?

Hey Mesut, there are two ways we currently use solar energy. First is in heating something. In most cases, it is a panel with copper or steel pipes inside that water or some other medium is circulated through. When the sun shines on the panel, heat is trapped inside below the glass, and the liquid is warmed up for other uses. The other common use is with a photovoltiac, or solar electric panel. In this case, the panel is made of two laters of silicone. One layer is doped with boron and the other with phosphorous. When the sun shines, particles from the sun called photons strike the layers of silicone, and a reaction occurs forcing electrons from one layer onto the other, this is referred to as the photovoltiac effect.

We live in a home in the upper midwest that uses both of these technologies. In the yard there is a box about the size of a doghouse with a 30 gallon metal black tank inside and a glass top and side. Water is fed through this tank first before going to the regular water heater. On warm summer days, the water in the tank gets above 120 degrees in the afternoon, and when we use hot water, the water heater does not have to come on at all. We also have an array of solar electric panels on the garage that charge batteries, which power a large inverter, which then runs all the lighting and electronics and appliances in the home. It all works pretty nicely. If you want to learn more, I have some places you could check out online, I will list them below. Take care, Rudydoo

Are Solar Panels On You Re House Effective?

Forget the last two that answered, solar panels can now be built by yourself for under 200 dollars each. In a short time they will pay for themselves, safer for our environment and will save you money. The utility company will credit your excess electric that you didn't use that the panels generated. So go green and save money!
