Take Advantage of the Benefits of Solar Power

Take Advantage of the Benefits of Solar Power

Reduce (or Eliminate) Electricity Bills

We work with you to get as close as possible to covering 100% of your home’s energy usage with renewable solar energy.

100% Clean Energy for Your Home

By going solar, you’ll be lowering your home’s carbon footprint which will help protect the environment against the effects of climate change.

Residential Solar Incentives

Residential Solar Incentives

Federal and state governments have enacted dramatic legislation to provide incentives for alternative energy. With these tax credits and rebates for photovoltaic (PV) systems, your upfront cost is substantially reduced.

Massachusetts Solar Incentives

Massachusetts Solar Incentives

Income Tax Credit of 15%

($1000 cap)

Property Tax Exemption

(on system value for a term of 20 years)

Sales Tax Exemption

(on all equipment)

Beneficial Net Metering Regulations

(receive full credit for electricity value)

Owning a solar system just got easier with the help of the Mass Solar Loan.

Federal Government Solar Incentives

Federal Government Solar Incentives

The Federal Solar Tax Credit (officially called the ITC, or Investment Tax Credit) allows homeowners to deduct up to 26% of the total cost of their solar energy system from their federal taxes due, and roll any remaining balance forward. 

A major portion of your system cost is offset by these incentives in the first year!

Solar Massachusetts Renewable Target (SMART)

Solar Massachusetts Renewable Target (SMART)

What is SMART?

The SMART program is designed to encourage the continued development of solar panel installations in Massachusetts.

This incentive program pays homeowners for the excess electricity their system produces, direct to you straight from your utility company every month for a period of 10 years after your installation date. In April 2020, the SMART program doubled its available GW capacity!

Site Analysis

Site Analysis

Assessment includes evaluating the solar potential.

During a site assessment, our team will determine the best, most effective location and design for your solar photovoltaic (PV) panel system. Using special instruments and calculation methods, we'll evaluate your home's solar potential and estimate your system's annual energy production. 

We'll also take a close look at your historical and projected energy usage, and provide you with an analysis that includes options for systems that balance your energy generation potential with your projected energy use. 

The result of this analysis is an easy-to-understand report that allows you to select the system that best suits your needs and fits your lifestyle. 

System Design

System Design

We are among the few installers that routinely build systems that we also own.

As the old phrase goes, “We eat our own cooking.” That mentality is applied to every system we build.

Each design decision is made as if we are going to live with that decision for years. Take wire sizing for example. The electric code is written to ensure the system doesn’t present a fire hazard. If we were to simply follow the minimum requirements of the code, the system would be perfectly safe, but those wires are inefficient and will cause a system to lose a significant percentage of the power it produces. Why work so hard to make electricity and then waste it? We carefully size wires to minimize transmission losses and balance the cost of the increased wire size (after all, copper isn't free) against the value of carrying power more efficiently. So like the entire solar panel system, the “extra copper” pays for itself in five years, everything after that is a free bonus.

Some might call this overanalyzing. We call it good engineering.

Installation

Installation

Dependable equipment, installed right.

We install only the best solar panels, inverters, hardware, and electrical components. We select equipment with the longest warranties in the business, zero maintenance, and dependable performance like LG and Solaria for PV panels, Enphase for microinverters and Tesla Powerwall and sonnenBatterie for solar energy storage. We work with industry-leading suppliers and don’t take chances on off-brand equipment.

Our systems use only stainless steel fasteners. To achieve this, we even replace/upgrade the screws that come with standard-service electrical equipment. Our commitment to quality also shows in our compulsive need to use structural and electrical components that exceed the code requirements.

These systems are our legacy. We intend for them to function perfectly for years and years.

We install solar photovoltaic systems like those we have on our own homes. It’s our Golden Rule.

Monitoring and Support

Monitoring and Support

With no moving parts, how do you know it's working?

At a glance, you’ll know exactly how well it’s working. And so will we. With every system we install, My Generation Energy provides an online monitoring service. This is visual, detailed information about your solar panel system at your fingertips. The performance of each day is displayed and archived, so if there ever is a problem and you need solar maintenance work, we’ll know it before you have to think about it. It’ll be diagnosed and solved. There’s no guessing or wondering about how well your system is working.
