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 home owners to utilize the sun to power daily life: running your air conditioner, cleaning clothing, watching TELEVISION, cooking supper. All while decreasing your carbon footprint, and without burning fossil fuels or putting a stress on the electrical grid. And while the ecological advantages of solar power are considerable, lots of property owners find that the benefit, unique features, and expense savings of owning a solar power system are much more alluring.

Leading Benefits of Solar Energy

#1 Considerably decrease or perhaps remove your electric costs

Whether you're a property owner, organization, or not-for-profit, electricity costs can make up a large part of your month-to-month costs. With a photovoltaic panel system, you'll create totally free power for your system's entire 25+ year lifecycle. Even if you do not produce One Hundred Percent of the energy you consume, solar will reduce your energy bills and you'll still conserve a great deal of money.

#2 Make an excellent return on your investment

Solar panels aren't a cost-- they're one of the finest methods to invest, with returns equaling those of more standard investments like stocks and bonds. Thanks to considerable electrical power bill cost savings, the typical American house owner settles their photovoltaic panel system in 7 to eight years and sees an ROI of 20 percent or more.

#3 Secure against rising energy expenses

One of the most clear cut advantages of solar panels is the capability to hedge energy costs. In the previous ten years, property electricity prices have actually gone up by an average of 3 percent every year. By buying a solar energy system now, you can repair your electrical power rate and safeguard against unforeseeable increases in electrical energy expenses. If you're an organisation or house owner with changing cash circulation, going solar likewise helps you better forecast and handle your expenses.

#4 Increase your property worth

Numerous research studies have actually discovered that houses equipped with solar energy systems have greater residential or commercial property worths and sell more quickly than non-solar houses. Appraisers are progressively taking solar installations into factor to consider as they value homes at the time of a sale, and as property buyers become more educated about solar, need for properties equipped 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 component of accomplishing energy self-reliance in the United States. By increasing our capability to produce electrical power from the sun, we can likewise insulate our country from rate fluctuations in worldwide energy markets.

#6 Develop jobs and assist your local economy

Inning accordance with The Solar Structure, the solar industry included 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 development is expected to continue. Due to the fact that solar-related jobs have the tendency to be greater paying and can not be contracted out, they are a substantial factor to the United States economy.

#7 Safeguard the environment

Solar is a fantastic 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 reduce that number. A common property solar panel system will eliminate 3 to 4 lots of carbon emissions each year-- the equivalent of planting over 100 trees yearly.

#8 Demonstrate your commitment to sustainability

Sustainability and corporate social responsibility are essential components of an organization's culture and worths. They also produce bottom line results. Increasingly, customers and communities are recognizing and rewarding companies that decide to operate properly. Businesses are finding that "green" qualifications are a powerful driver of customer acquiring decisions, creating goodwill and improving service results.

#9 Start Saving 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 cash down.

Lots of property owners decide to finance their solar panels with one of the "pay-as-you-go" financing options. This means that a third-party company-- the solar supplier-- owns the planetary system and takes care of installation, upkeep, monitoring and repairs. You merely pay the solar service provider for electrical energy-- less than you would've paid the energy company.

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 well-known for their varying and unreliable electrical energy costs. There is clearly an upward pattern.

With solar panels and simple math, we can determine what does it cost? electrical energy will be generated, and most importantly, at exactly what rate, for at least the next 20 years (repaired energy expenses).

What do you mean "operate the environment"?

This guy http://sealbeach.org has solar panels on his house along with his 2 sons. They charge their electric cars from them and drive 100 miles a day for free :-) They also sell excess electricity to the power company.

How Many 80 Watt Solar Panels Do I Need For My Cental House?

There are two pieces of data related to your home's electrical usage that will factor into the design.

The average daily kilowatt-hour (kWh) usage and the peak demand(kW). You consume kWh throughout the entire 24-hour interval, but only have several hours of sunshine. Your peak demand is your highest rate of consumption.

To compare these values to driving a car, kWh is the miles you drive in a day, and kW demand is your stop speed.

If you are going to try and power 100% of the home with solar, then you're going to want to keep your demand as low as possible. It is possible to measure your homes demand if your utility uses the older style mechanical electric meter. By counting the revolutions of the rotating disk in one minute (i.e. RPMs) you can calculate the demand.

RPM x 60 x Kh = watts

Kh is a factor unique to the electric meter. It is usually stamped on the meter face. Typical values in the US are 1.8, 3.6, 7.2, and 12 -- however many other values also exist. If your electric service uses current transformers (CTs) you will need to multiply the watts above by the CT ratio.

You can measure your daily kWh usage by reading the electric meter each day around the same time. The incremental usage represents the kWh used in each 24-hour interval.

A 2000 ft² midwestern home with central AC and natural gas for heating will have a summer peak demand of around 5 kW. Without central AC, the peak load is probably closer to 2 kW.

Once you have the kWh and kW, you can begin designing your solar array. Keep in mind that you will likely NOT get 80 watts out of a panel -- That's the ideal setting with perfect positioning to the sun on a cloudless day near the equator.

Building solar panels that track the sun will maximize the power output during the hours of sunshine.

Not all the energy you put into the battery is available for usage in the home. Some will be lost due to the inefficiencies in the battery and inverter systems.

What are you going to do on cloudy/rainy days with very low solar power output? If you want “life as usual” you’ll need to oversize the system to have sufficient battery capacity to ride through the days without sunshine.

Throughout the seasons you will have longer and shorter periods of sunshine. Your system will need to be sized for the limited solar power available on the shorter days.

Perhaps a mix of solar and wind power will help diversify your power needs across two energy sources.

Will A Solar Installation Company Just Install Solar Panels Without Buying Them From The Company?
I Can Get A Really Good Deal On Some Solar Panels That Could Come With The Racking And Install Equipment, But Neglects The Installation. The Only Problem Is That I Don'T Want To Install The Wiring, Racking, And Everything Myself With A Fear Of Doings Things Wrong. Do Any Companies In Northern California Offer A Deal Where They Do The Install For Me And Charge Me Only For The Installation? If So, What Should I Expect To Pay For Just The Installation?

The lack of installation is exactly why it's such a "good deal". If I were you I'd look for a roofer who is also an electrician or vice versa. Also, make sure to do your research about system production metering and monitoring. This service is built-in when you purchase a system from professional solar installer, but it appears that there are companies that provide this service independently.

Good luck.

Can A Home Owned Solar Panel Support The Entire House'S Electrical Needs?
Pretty Much, Can Solar Panel'S Support The Entire Houses Electrical Needs Generally, Because I Know Sometimes The Owner'S Can Sell Unused Electricity Back, Any Ideas Or Any Ideas On How Much The Average Home Uses In Kwh

It all depends on how you define 'needs'. Could you have enough lighting and enough power to keep the fridge running? Easy that. A passive solar water heater would produce enough hot water for showers and cleaning, no problem there. If the majority of the folks now living on this planet had all that they'd be dancing in the streets. Heating and air conditioning is another subject. Both of these are energy hogs so they require an entirely different approach that at the current state of the art is beyond the average homeowners ability. If cities, counties and states demanded that all homes have solar water heaters and solar panels a whale of a lot of electricity could be generated on site. Expensive? True, but for a century state and local governments have demanded that every home must have electricity, running water and flush toilets. I imagine when those rules were set there were 'teabaggers' who complained that 'government' had no right to demand such an imposition'. Yeah, the government does have that right so lets move past that. As a nation we're going to have to set some priorities, priorities that insist on the 'greatest good for the greatest number'. Burning coal and oil and also wasting electricity on outdoor advertising signs, excessive lighting and mal-insulated buildings can't continue. Such things as single pane windows are going to have to go as will the will the 150 year old incandescent light bulb...energy hogs in general will have to go. The US will have to move as rapidly as possible to public utilities that produce electric power via solar and wind. Private energy companies who have deals with coal producers simply aren't going to fold up their coal burning electrical plants on their own. The government is going to have to shut them down. Tax money, instead of paying for a bloated military should be used to build a 21st century electrical grid based on solar and wind to take care of the electric overload that homes and business can't produce on their own. All other electrical needs can be produced by conventional power as stand by units. Tax breaks and subsidies and direct cash grants could make this happen. We did far more than that in WW2 in less than a years time. Very doable technically...politically, that's a different story!

Solar Panels!!???!!!?
Im Doing This Project On Solar Panels And Im Not So Sure What They Are! Some Questions I Have Are Who Invented Them And What Were They Invented? If U Could Know Anything On Solar Panels I Would Love To Hear It. Thanks!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Solar Panels are collections of solar cells. These panels basically collect the incoming sun's electromagnetic radiation and convert it into electrical energy.

A solar cell is any device that directly converts the energy in light into electrical energy through the process of photovoltaics. The development of solar cell technology begins with the 1839 research of French physicist Antoine-César Becquerel. Becquerel observed the photovoltaic effect while experimenting with a solid electrode in an electrolyte solution when he saw a voltage develop when light fell upon the electrode.
