Solar energy technology is improving every day and changes are happening quickly. If you’re considering a solar photovoltaic (PV) investment this year, the timing has never been better.

Celebrating their 20th anniversary in 2013, the PV pros at Alternate Energy have spent the last two decades becoming the state’s solar experts. In the coming months, Honolulu Star-Advertiser readers will be introduced to some of these pros. People like operations team leaders Joe and Stan, both certified Mitsubishi installers; Kathyrn, permitting specialist and microinverter troubleshooter extraordinaire; Sherri, solar water heating guru; Amy, Housing Owners Association genius; Ashley the finance whiz, and many more!

In addition to their crucial back office duties, the entire team is constantly monitoring the industry for technological and quality developments that are particularly well suited to Hawaii’s unique environment — including the state’s tax credit situation.



That’s why Alternate Energy is excited to launch the new Solar Edge inverter and optimizer package with a substantial introductory offer of $1,000 off installation. The offer is available for a limited time only and is certain to be popular. Here’s why:

Up until now, customers had a choice between central inverters, which are highly efficient and a bit less expensive, and microinverters, which allow for individual monitoring, ability to harvest more energy over time, and flexibility with system configuration.

The new Solar Edge inverter/optimizer package is the best of both worlds. It can outperform microinverters by allowing maximum power output, while maintaining individual panel monitoring and tracking. And it offers the ultimate in flexible system configurations for maximum space utilization and the ability to take best advantage of the solar tax credits customers are entitled to.

Alternate Energy founder and owner Bruce Ekimura said, “We’ve always been committed to creating the best experience for customers, from pricing to product to service. Our entire ohana, including our sales team, installers and back office administration team, are united in their dedication to our customers before, during and after their purchase.”
