The Ruizes of Aiea are the latest family to find good service, a trusted product and a great deal for their PV installation with Discount Solar Co., a division of Alternate Energy Inc.

Discount Solar Co. was established by the founders of Alternate Energy Inc. (AEI) in 1993, to provide homeowners with superior solar water heating systems at a reasonable price. Today, the company has been revamped to offer price-conscious homeowners the ability to purchase quality, brand-name PV systems at a moderate price point — expertly installed by AEI’s highly trained technicians.


Poia Fagafa is the Discount Solar Co. sales rep who helped the Ruizes in 1995 when they made their first solar investment, a new solar hot water heater for their family. Over the years, Poia checked in from time to time to make sure their water heater was performing well and continuing to save money for the family.


So of course they chose Discount Solar Co. and Poia when they decided to purchase PV this year. After hearing all the horror stories about solar saturated neighborhoods and permitting delays, the Ruizes were extremely pleased with the speed and efficiency with which Discount Solar Co. worked with inspectors and HECO to expedite their Net Metering Agreement and start putting the sun to work reducing their electric bill. No delays, no confusion — just an expert team getting the job done.

Poia is understandably proud that Andy and Leonita Ruiz came back to him this year, almost 20 years later, for their PV purchase. But the Ruizes wouldn’t have had it any other way. Only terrific service and a top-notch product can create that kind of long-term trusting relationship.


In the case of the Ruizes, the product is LG — a trusted manufacturer producing solar electronics products at an affordable price point, yet not associated with the questionable products seen coming out of China and other similar regions. Backed by 25 years of intense research and development far surpassing industry standards, LG Solar’s photovoltaic modules are uniquely designed to offer the quality and reliability customers the world over have come to expect from LG.

Celebrate the return of Discount Solar Co. where you can count on quality, affordable photovoltaic systems, expert installations and backing by the AEI guarantee. Contact the company for a free estimate.
