Over the last two decades, Alternate Energy Inc. has steadily become one of Hawaii’s top choices for photovoltaic systems.

To accommodate demand, the locally owned and operated solar energy company recently purchased a brand new headquarters in Pearl City Industrial Park, built a state-of-the-art training facility and beefed up its team of employee installers, more than tripling the size of its operation.


The new space features a loading bay and business offices, and a large storage area that can accommodate more photovoltaic product inventory, substantially reducing customer waiting time.

To address the need for highly qualified installers in this fast-growing industry, Alternate Energy added a designated training facility with a classroom and hands-on instruction area outfitted with the most popular roof types used in Hawaii.

“We train all new hires here in the warehouse before they put the first bolt into a customer’s rooftop,” said owner Bruce Ekimura. “Even if installers come to us with some experience, we find that they often benefit from retraining to ensure they are delivering the impeccable service we are known for. We are continually educating our technicians to maintain Alternate Energy’s high standards for quality installation.”


Alternate Energy Inc. was founded in 1993 and is one of Hawaii’s oldest solar energy companies, specializing in the design and installation of photovoltaic systems, solar water heating systems and solar attic fans. It is locally owned and operated, with offices on Oahu and Maui. The company has been a HECO Approved Contractor (Hawaii Energy Efficiency Program) since 1996.

In 2011 Alternate Energy became an official Certified Mitsubishi Installer and Premier Dealer; it is the only authorized dealer based in Hawaii to provide Mitsubishi’s photovoltaic modules, including the new MLU Series.
