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 utilize the sun to power daily life: running your ac system, washing clothes, seeing TV, cooking dinner. All while reducing your carbon footprint, and without burning fossil fuels or putting a strain on the electrical grid. And while the ecological benefits of solar power are significant, numerous residents find that the benefit, distinct functions, and expense savings of owning a solar power system are much more enticing.

Leading Advantages of Solar Energy

#1 Considerably lower or even eliminate your electrical expenses

Whether you're a property owner, service, or not-for-profit, electricity expenses can comprise a large part of your regular monthly expenses. With a photovoltaic panel system, you'll create free power for your system's entire 25+ year lifecycle. Even if you do not produce 100 percent of the energy you consume, solar will minimize your utility bills and you'll still conserve a lot of loan.

#2 Make a great return on your financial investment

Solar panels aren't an expense-- they're one of the best methods to invest, with returns matching those of more conventional financial investments like stocks and bonds. Thanks to significant electrical power expense cost savings, the typical American homeowner settles their photovoltaic panel system in seven to eight years and sees an ROI of 20 percent or more.

#3 Safeguard versus rising energy expenses

One of the most clear cut benefits of photovoltaic panels is the ability to hedge utility prices. In the previous 10 years, residential electricity rates have increased by an average of three percent annually. By purchasing a solar energy system now, you can repair your electrical power rate and safeguard versus unpredictable boosts in electricity expenses. If you're a company or house owner with changing capital, going solar likewise helps you much better forecast and handle your expenditures.

#4 Increase your home worth

Numerous research studies have found that houses geared up with solar energy systems have higher property worths and offer more quickly than non-solar houses. Appraisers are increasingly taking solar installations into consideration as they value homes at the time of a sale, and as property buyers end up being more educated about solar, need for homes geared up 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 a crucial part of achieving energy self-reliance in the United States. By increasing our capability to generate electrical power from the sun, we can likewise insulate our country from rate changes in worldwide energy markets.

#6 Create jobs and help your regional economy

Inning accordance with The Solar Foundation, the solar market added tasks at a rate nearly 12 times faster than the total U.S. economy in 2015, representing 1.2 percent of all tasks in the country. This growth is expected to continue. Since solar-related jobs have the tendency to be greater paying and can not be outsourced, they are a considerable contributor to the United States economy.

#7 Protect the environment

Solar is a great method to lower your carbon footprint. Buildings are accountable for 38 percent of all carbon emissions in the U.S., and going solar can considerably decrease that number. A normal domestic solar panel system will remove three to four heaps of carbon emissions each year-- the equivalent of planting over 100 trees annually.

#8 Show your dedication to sustainability

Sustainability and business social duty are essential components of a company's culture and values. They also produce bottom line results. Progressively, consumers and neighborhoods are recognizing and rewarding businesses that decide to operate properly. Businesses are finding that "green" credentials are a powerful motorist of customer buying choices, producing goodwill and enhancing 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 money down.

Many house owners decide to fund their solar panels with among the "pay-as-you-go" funding options. This implies that a third-party company-- the solar service provider-- owns the planetary system and takes care of installation, maintenance, monitoring and repairs. You just pay the solar provider for electricity-- less than you would've paid the energy business.

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

#10. Solar is a Secure Financial investment

The utility business are notorious for their varying and undependable electrical power costs. There is plainly an upward trend.

With photovoltaic panels and easy math, we can determine what does it cost? electrical power will be created, and most notably, at exactly what cost, for at least the next 20 years (fixed energy costs).

Frequently Asked Questions

Can Someone Tell Me About Solar Panels For Homes?
I Was Trying To Look Online For Solar Panels For My Home To Take Some Of The Strain Off Of Using Oil And Electricity But I Find It Very Hard To Understand Exactly How They Are Used. Like One That I Looked Up Is 100 Watts.....Is That Like A Light Bulb Watt? How Many Things Can That Power? Is It Really Cheaper In The Long Run Because The Panels Are Very Expensive? If Anyone Has Web Sites That Can Explain This To Me I Would Appreciate A Link, Or Anyone To Answer Part Of My Question.

There are two types of devices that collect energy from the sun:

Solar photovoltaic modules use solar cells to convert light from the sun into electricity.

Solar thermal collectors use the sun's energy to heat water or another fluid such as oil or antifreeze

There is only a one time cost to installing solar panels.
The way to get the most for your money is, really to have them installed at the time of the home being built.
You have to figure, over-time, how long it will take regarding the cost of the solar panels vs the cost of your energy now.

In A Dc Circuit Running From Solar Panels To Batteries Do I Only Need One Diode In Series?
In A Dc Circuit Running From Solar Panels To Batteries Do I Only Need One Diode In Series? I Am Connecting A Small Solar Panel To A Battery And Put Two Diodes In Series On The Positive And The Negative, But When I Only Put One In Circuit It Works Fine. Will This Prevent Backfeed Back Into The Solar Panel With Only One Diode In Series?

You only need a single diode inline between the solar panel and the battery. A diode acts like a one way valve. Place a diode on either wire effectively blocks reverse flow.

You may also consider a charge controller, unless you want to manually check voltages during the day and disconnect the solar panels when the battery is charged. Otherwise, you may overcharge the battery and damage it.

What Does Having Solar Shingles Or Panels Installed On The Roof Involve?
For A Small House, Can It Be Done In Conjunction With A Regular Asphalt Shingle Roof Replacement? How Does The Electrician Then Wire It Into The Existing System? Do They Need To Get Into The Walls Or Attic Or How Do They Connect It? In Other Words, How Much Disruption Would Be Expected In The Process And How Long Would It Take? Thanks!

Solar shingles are special shigles with a photo voltaic film on it that makes direct current electrcity (like a battery) when energized by converting the sun's rays. You need to have new solar shingles installed over the old ones.

Solar panels are installed either on the roof or on the ground.

Either way they need a collector box where all the panels or shingles are wired together, a disconnect (on off switch), and inverter (changes d.c. voltage to a.c.voltage energy to run household appliances or sell the excess back to the power company).

Some units require transformers if the output a.c. voltage is either to high or to low for your use.

Some people buy storage batteries to store up excess energy made from the sun to use during the night when the sun has set.


The time to get it installed varies on how complicated the system is.

Normally you get a survey first to see where is the best place to place it is. Shade from trees, buildings etc. can either loose part of the panels efficency or cause the whole panel to put out 0 volts.

A average installer with some mechanical and electrical ability can do it in a week end. A good installer can do it in less tah 1 day. But it may cost a couple hundred dollars.


Check with your state and the federal government. It can take 30% off the top or more in savings. Federal or off your income tax is easiest. State money is a first come first surve and the funds may be used for that year.

Plant Cell Analogy To A House?
I Need This Tonight Please Answer Now

Walls = Cell wall (because its a wall!)

Chloroplasts = Solar panels on the roof (gain energy from light)

Mitochondria = Generator in the basement (produce energy from fuel already in the cell/house)

Vacuole = Refrigerator/Storeroom (vacuoles store nutrients [they also keep the cell turgid, but I'm not sure how that analogy could apply to the house])

Nucleus = Study? (Nucleus is where all of the cell's functioning is ultimately determined, I guess instead of a study, you could decide to include the person who makes all the decisions in the house)

cell membrane = Windows (Lets things into the cell when needed, otherwise keeps them out, almost like how we can close/open windows in a house)

Endoplasmic reticulum OR ribosomes = Kitchen (ribosomes along with the ER produces all the goods the cell needs, and may also be involved in exporting those goods outside [in the kitchen analogy, this would be like people walking out with packed lunches I guess...])

Cell cytoplasm = hallway (everything has to travel through the cytoplasm to get anywhere else)


That's about all I can think of, hope it helps!

What Is A Reasonable Price For Enough Solar Panels To Power A Large Amount Of Condos And Other Buildings?
I'M Doing A School Project And We Need Ways To Be Green. I Have To Power A Retirement Community In Florida. I Have 15 Large Condos, 3 Beach Houses, 3 Restaurnats, A Pool, Gym, Hot Tub, Sauna, Grocery Store, Gas Station, And Several Offices. They Don'T Have To Power Everything But I Would Like To Be As Green As Possible. Also Maybe Other Suggestions On Good Ways To Go Green.

i would look at this in a diverse approch.
1. being that it is florida, i would start with using PV on the houses in combination with a couple of small peak mounted wind turbines (sources oynot.com, solardyne.com, sunwize.com and on and on).
2. condo's are different. they usually have flat roofs so the turbines would be out of the question and so would PV. Instead i would use hard mount solar panals, and try to be energy efficent in other areas of the construction.
3. the pool is an easy one. your in florida, unless you want to cool it in the summer, and heat it in the winter, then just run the water through a condenser that is in a solar water heater loop. and the same answers apply to the rest.
But the best ans is think about it before you build, build with the surroundings, and plan for it by being construction wise.
