The Financial Incentives of Purchasing a System Speak for Themselves!

Buying versus leasing is the most important decision you can make. We’ll show you how owning a system provides you with a quick payback and many years of free electricity and real profits.

We’ll show you how leasing can only generate minimal savings on electric bills. The lease company keeps all the credits and rebates. Furthermore, unlike ownership, solar users with a lease have a lien on their property for the length of the lease.

Take control of your energy costs today! Please contact Higgins Energy Alternatives at 978.355.6343 or Let us help you capture energy from the sun for years to come.

Higgins History

Higgins Energy Alternatives is one of the oldest and largest alternative energy shops in the United States. A family owned and operated business started in 1975 by Ron and Sue Higgins, we originally opened as an antique store which diversified into wood stoves and chain saws during the energy crisis of 1979.

Over the years, we have grown along with our product line, which now includes a full line of Solar equipment for all of your Photovoltaic and Solar Thermal needs. From sales to service, our staff has literally decades of experience in every aspect of self-reliant home energy needs. Several of our employees have been with us for over 30 years.

Although we have grown and expanded in order to better service our customers, we remain located in a small town with a friendly country atmosphere, where our top priority is customer goodwill and satisfaction.
