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 use the sun to power everyday life: running your a/c, cleaning clothes, seeing TELEVISION, cooking supper. All while reducing your carbon footprint, and without burning fossil fuels or putting a pressure on the electrical grid. And while the ecological advantages of solar power are significant, many homeowners discover that the convenience, unique features, and cost savings of owning a solar power system are even more enticing.

Top Ten Benefits of Solar Energy

#1 Considerably reduce or even eliminate your electrical bills

Whether you're a house owner, organization, or not-for-profit, electricity expenses can make up a large portion of your monthly costs. With a solar panel system, you'll generate totally free power for your system's entire 25+ year lifecycle. Even if you don't produce 100 percent of the energy you consume, solar will minimize your energy bills and you'll still save a great deal of loan.

#2 Make a terrific return on your financial investment

Solar panels aren't an expense-- they are among the very best ways to invest, with returns measuring up to those of more conventional investments like stocks and bonds. Thanks to substantial electricity expense cost savings, the average American house owner settles their photovoltaic panel system in 7 to 8 years and sees an ROI of 20 percent or more.

#3 Safeguard against increasing energy expenses

One of the most clear cut advantages of solar panels is the capability to hedge energy prices. In the previous 10 years, domestic electrical energy prices have actually increased by approximately 3 percent yearly. By investing in a solar energy system now, you can repair your electricity rate and safeguard versus unforeseeable increases in electricity costs. If you're a service or homeowner with changing cash flow, going solar also helps you much better projection and manage your costs.

#4 Boost your residential or commercial property worth

Several research studies have discovered that homes geared up with solar energy systems have greater home values and sell quicker than non-solar homes. Appraisers are increasingly taking solar setups into consideration as they value houses at the time of a sale, and as property buyers end up being more informed about solar, need for homes geared up with solar panel systems will continue to grow.

#5 Boost U.S. energy self-reliance

The sun is a near-infinite source of energy and a key part of attaining energy self-reliance in the United States. By increasing our capability to create electrical power from the sun, we can also insulate our nation from cost variations in global energy markets.

#6 Create jobs and assist your local economy

Inning accordance with The Solar Structure, the solar industry added jobs at a rate almost 12 times faster than the total U.S. economy in 2015, representing 1.2 percent of all jobs in the nation. This development is anticipated to continue. Due to the fact that solar-related tasks have the tendency to be greater paying and can not be contracted out, they are a considerable factor to the U.S. economy.

#7 Protect the environment

Solar is a great way to decrease 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 residential solar panel system will remove 3 to 4 tons of carbon emissions each year-- the equivalent of planting over 100 trees each year.

#8 Show your dedication to sustainability

Sustainability and business social obligation are necessary parts of a company's culture and worths. They likewise produce bottom line outcomes. Progressively, customers and communities are acknowledging and rewarding services that decide to run properly. Services are finding that "green" qualifications are a powerful motorist of consumer buying decisions, creating goodwill and enhancing service results.

#9 Start Saving from Day 1

Solar purchase power arrangements (PPAs) and solar leasing has actually 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" funding options. This indicates that a third-party business-- the solar service provider-- owns the planetary system and takes care of installation, upkeep, tracking and repair works. You simply pay the solar company for electrical energy-- less than you would've paid the energy business.

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

#10. Solar is a Secure Investment

The energy business are well-known for their fluctuating and undependable electrical energy costs. There is plainly an upward trend.

With solar panels and basic mathematics, we can determine just how much electrical power will be created, and most importantly, at what price, for at least the next 20 years (repaired energy expenses).

Frequently Asked Questions

How Is Solar Energy Harvested,Stored,Distributed And Priced?
Please Try To Answer At Lesat One Above

Solar energy is harvested in two ways:

1. The sun's heat is harvested. This is usually done by heating a liquid. For home owners, the sun's heat can be used to heat your hot water by circulating it through a solar panel on your roof.

2. The sun's energy is harvested and turned into electricity. This works equally well in hot climates as cold - you just need sunlight. Traditionally, silicon panels are used. There is a molecular reaction when photons (think of these as parcels of sun energy) strike the panels. This sets of a flow of electrons = electricity.

Solar energy can be stored:

a) Storing the heat ie. hot water, by keeping it in an insulated container

b) When storing electricity, you can store this in batteries.

Distributed:

a) For hot water, by connecting this to your house plumbing

b) For electricity, by connecting to your home's electricity system. You can also connect your solar electricity to the grid - this is known as net metering.

With net metering, you can sell solar energy back to the grid. (this is when you can watch your electricity meter run backwards.)

Priced:

this depends on

a) The price of the solar panel system
b) Your power bills - ie. how much power you can save if you used solar energy instead
c) How much sun is available where you live.

Hope this answers your question :)

What Does This Question Mean?
What Is The Sustainability Of Solar Energy? Whats It Asking Or If You Could Just Answer It For Me You Would Be Doing Me A Huge Favor Thanks ≪3

Solar energy is energy from the sun. Sustainability refers to the ability to keep on keeping on.

The question asks to what extent can we depend on solar energy for the long haul.

I'm sure you can figure out the answer.

Why Is Solar Power Renewable?
Can You Please Explain...B/C I Kind Of Get It But Im Not Too Sure.

The sun provides free and renewable energy, and attempts to make use of it go back well into the 19th century. However, its utilization poses two problems. Solar energy is very diffuse and has to be concentrated if it is to be used as an alternative to fossil fuels. It is also difficult to store, and it must therefore be supplemented by another energy source, such as electricity, to provide energy for heating water, when the sun is not shining. While one does not have to pay for the energy one absorbs sitting in the sun, solar energy in a form suitable for heating requires equipment that has to be paid for. The cost for every known application of solar energy is consequently above that needed to produce the same energy traditionally from fossil fuels.

Reasons Why Nuclear Energy Is The Best?

Well, i dont really think it is, but some reasons are:
It generates more energy than other sources, even if it is more dangerous.
It is an easy source of energy to use, because you dont have to really on region or weather (like wind, hydrolic, and solar energy do with wind and cloudy days and the neeed to be near running water)
It utilizes chemicals and creates more jobs than those needed for other energy sources.
and etc.

Why Solar Energy Is Not Being Used?
I Wonder Why Are We Not Taking Advantage Of Solar Energy ? Our Carss,Electrical Appliances Can Be Built To Consume Solar Energy Which Is Very Economical, Less Pollutant, Save And Environment Friendly.

The reason why it isn't being used more is because solar power is expensive. It also has only about 10-percent output whereas coal and gasoline have more than 30. Fossil fuels are cheap commodities with dense output. Further, the oil companies are doing what they can to stamp out alternative energy because they're afraid they'll lose profit.
