Galen Staengl-Afton, VA
“We had a great experience with Altenergy! The staff was personable and knowledgeable and educated us about the solar potential at our home. We were provided with a comprehensive plan for the recommended system that allowed us to make the right decision for our needs. The installation went smoothly and looks great!"
Rhoda Miller-Keezletown, VA
“The technical sales rep was very knowledgeable in helping us determine the size system required. This was not straight forward based on historical power usage since we added a whole house AC unit and heat pump to the mix. Communication was prompt and efficient. The installers did an excellent job in a timely manner. The inspector complemented the all metal conduit component of the installation."
Maria Held-Middleton, ID
“Altenergy is one of the best contractor experiences I have had in a long time. They were very responsive I always felt informed where we were in the project. Every day the workers would clean up the area of work and give me a quick rundown of what was accomplished next steps and gave me the opportunity to ask all sorts of questions (Thanks, Chad). Micah was instrumental in keeping all the official stuff inline from proposals permitting and Idaho power net meter requests on service orders. A big plus was the time Micah spent with the final walk through making sure that we were completely satisfied with every aspect of the installation and how to use the monitoring tools and how the system in monitored to assure we have clean and efficient energy production. Before selecting Altenergy I had received quotes form some local and national competitors none of which were courteous or willing explain why their quotes were so much more for the same grade of equipment and acted put out to even be asked. I would recommend Altenergy to any of my family or friends."
Trent Hansen-Boise, ID
“Micah Hornback was great to work with-always available to answer questions and very knowledgeable and helpful. The installation guys were also great. We would highly recommend Altenergy (and we have.)"
Bobbie Moritz-Boise, ID
“They made the whole process very straightforward and were flexible around my schedule. The panels have worked out well, I haven't had any issues."
Alisa Beyninson-Alexandria, VA
“I think the company that is Altenergy is back in Virginia. So we had no contact with them. However, the local people here in Sun Valley, Idaho, who we cut the deal with and who did the installation of our 3kwH system were fantastic. Absolutely the best people to work with in every way. They made the whole process, from beginning to end, very easy. Our 1st power bill after the install was $11.09. We're good to go."
Mike Wade-Hailey, ID
“This company did a great job intalling our solar power system. They were very respectful of our schedules and maintained a clean organized work environment. They communicated in a timely manner. They explained everything well. The system works great."
Brooke Bostic-Charlottesville, VA
“From the first phone call to the final verification ALTENERGY has been extremely knowledgeable, professional, and courteous. They educated me on the different installation options, they listened and were very attentive to any questions/concerns I had. They even worked with my HOA to ensure the solar panels and installation confirmed to my HOA’s guidelines. ALTENERGY took care of everything including applying for all permits including working with my electric company to get the final go ahead to turn on the system. I would highly recommend ALTENERGY if you are seriously considering solar panels."
Umesh Patel-Fairfax, VA
“Jesse and his team were great to work with. We had enough panels installed to be net zero for our electricity use. Communication was good, they were willing to get us the system hardware we wanted, price was very competitive, and they finished ahead of schedule."
Matthew Thorum-Boise, ID
“Installation went like a dream. Installers were professional in every way. The information and consulting on the operation of the system was very helpful especially since I am totally not very technically inclined. And they even got the installation done in 2017 so I can take advantage of the tax credits."
Genie Weppner-Boise, ID
“They did an excellent job. Thorough explanation of solar options and regulations - answered all my questions promptly and in plain English. The installation crew did excellent work and was very courteous - made sure to take their shoes off when they came inside and cleaned up after themselves. Online/phone app access to power production info works great. Looks like they did a good job sizing the system to eliminate the power bill entirely."
Jerald Taylor-Boise, ID
“We had Altenergy Solar Solutions install a complete solar system at our home. We highly recommend Altenergy! They listened to our requirements and expectations and provided us with a thorough, competitive plan for our installation. The entire team was knowledgeable, experienced, and informed on current technology, practices, and installation. All of the employees we interfaced with were responsive to our many questions and concerns. The quality of the work was superb and the installation team was efficient and got the entire system up and running in a timely manner. We love the idea that we are now making our own electricity and reducing our carbon footprint! Five stars for the great job Altenergy did on our installation!"
Trina West-Edinburg, VA
“Altenergy installed a 17-panel, 5.61 kW solar panel system on our residential roof. They were very professional and everything was completed as scheduled. They explained the whole system and set me up with an online website to check our solar production. We had an excellent experience working with Altenergy and Fairfax County on this project, and look forward to generating electricity for many years to come."
John Kosco-Falls Church, VA
“The project was completed on time and on budget. The people that worked on this were all very professional. I couldn't be more satisfied with what was done. This project involved putting the system on a townhouse project which I own with leases to occupants. The only issue I have is the lack of follow up from Altenergy in dealing with Dominion on the metering. That would, of course, not be an issue on for most customers."
John Bartelt-Charlottesville, VA
“I had Altenergy install a 6.9 kw system on a roof in Charlottesville. They completed the job efficiently and on time. Their design team did an excellent job on getting the most energy from my site. The kept me informed on progress and completed everything according to the design plan."
Bob Putnam-Charlottesville, VA
“We are very pleased with the system and our interaction with Altenergy. One of the most important criteria for us was the reputation of the company. We found Altenergy by going through a county program to promote solar where the county selected them and one other installer after an RFP and vetting process. After this, we had greater confidence that we would be working with true professionals. Our experience has supported that belief. Customer service has been excellent and the installation and inspection were great."
William Bomersheim-Falls Church, VA
“Altenergy designed and installed a solar system for us and I would highly recommend them. Everyone involved in the project was professional, knowledgeable and always friendly. They went out of their way to be sure we were pleased with the project and our experience."
Patrick Haas-Boise, ID
“I can't say enough good things about our experience with Altenergy. They are competent, professional and an absolute joy to work with! The staff at Altenergy kept us fully informed at every stage of the process, returning calls and emails promptly and answering questions thoroughly. They took care of all necessary permits and served as an intermediary with the electric company. We did not talk to other solar providers but a quick internet check confirmed that Altenergy's prices are competitive. Although everything has been working perfectly with our new system, it is also clear that Altenergy stands by its products and workmanship should we need help in the future. Promotion of solar energy use is clearly more than just a business for this company, it is a passion, and their commitment to make installation and use of solar energy a consumer friendly process is evident. We are delighted with our new solar array. Thank you Altenergy for helping us become part of the solution!"
Pamela Schmoll-Burke, VA
“We had Altenergy install our system as part of Solarize the Valley in Boise this summer. Their quote came in 25% lower than other bids we received. They did a very neat and professional job installing our system. Before signing, we had our son, an electrical engineer, go over the proposal with a fine tooth comb. He could find no faults with the design, or the eventual install. The installers showed up on site with full blueprints and installation diagrams which were followed. The system is up and working as promised. Everyone from Altenergy showed up promptly at appointed times also."
Roger Anderson-Boise, ID
“I'll keep this brief. They're fantastic. This is an investment we are glad we made. Not only do we get our electricity from the sun now, but the value of our house has increased."
Dave Easley-Staunton, VA
“Professional, timely, responsive, and did a great job installing my solar panels. The installation had to be moved a few weeks so I could re-roof my house (and accommodate other home issues beyond my/their time schedule) but the folks at Altenergy were flexible and worked with my schedule and needs. I'm very happy with my choice."
Memo Cordova-Boise, ID
“With the current political stance in our country and my state, I decided this May to jump on board and contracted with Altenergy to evaluate my suitability for solar power. They fulfilled a thorough evaluation of my home site with complete engineering, materials, cost analysis, time frames, etc. The representative, Micah, who spoke with us was very knowledgeable, patient with our limited understanding, thoroughly professional and pleasant! We contracted them for an installation, even though our window for the process was severely limited in time. They worked with us and completed the installation to our 100% satisfaction. The follow-up, education for monitoring, or communication if needed has been immediate and courteous. Everyone who worked on this project was a wonderful human being. I highly recommend this company for quality of materials, workmanship and professionalism all the way."
Barbara Cochrane-Boise, ID
“Brendan, Sal, and the Altenergy team were top notch. My wife and I engaged some solar consultants, solicited a slew of bids, and did a deep dive into the top 4 bids. So let us save you that work: Altenergy was the top choice for both consultants and for us. Also, a few of the other solar energy companies really tried to sell us on payment plans which were better for them and worse for us (they didn't make our final 4, but watch out for that!) The Altenergy team didn't disappoint; they did great work and were a pleasure to communicate with, from start to finish."
