Will using solar panels and batteries help to reduce my carbon footprint?
Using solar panels and solar batteries, you will be producing your own non-polluting power instead of relying on power from the power utilities, where energy can be generated by green-house gas producing sources.
The average New England solar system offsets 9,606 lbs of CO2 per year… That’s equivalent to the annual carbon-sequestering power of 50 trees!

Solar Energy FAQs
A: When considering solar energy pros and cons, it’s worth mentioning that it took four decades for America to install a million solar systems but just three years to install the second. And from here on out almost every projection is that solar growth will only pick up the pace. With that in mind it is hard to conceive of anything particularly negative about solar. Yes, politics will on occasion play havoc with the process, but how we generate electricity is definitely changing. Plus, solar is simply good for the planet, job creation, and in particular your pocketbook. Solar, in short, is here to stay.
A: Solar electric installations are quite simple – that’s part of their beauty and why they are virtually maintenance-free. (Click here to see photos of typical installations.) At its most basic level a system is composed of racking (for mounting the panels on), the panels, wiring, and an inverter for changing the direct-current (DC) electricity the panels generate to alternating-current (AC) electricity used in your house and on the grid. It’s more complex than that of course, but like we said conceptually simple. If you’d like more details, check out our video series on going solar here. (These include some specifics for Massachusetts, but the basics are relevant to our whole service area – and in fact – everywhere.)
A: Our typical installation time-line is two to three months, but it can vary a lot due to the many different variables. The actual installation time, that is while we are at your home, is quick; generally just a few days. However, the big time variable is all the necessary paperwork and approvals. That’s because your local electrical and building inspectors are involved, as is your utility, and is also the state and to some degree even the federal government. Plus, every system is slightly different and our approach is to buy materials and build specific to your project’s plan. It is not a cookie-cutter process. In short, there are many pieces to bring together. But don’t worry, we will handle the entire process and keep you apprised of the timing of each step as your project progresses.
