Solar trackers from Vermont-based AllEarth Renewables keep steadily moving across the country, this time heading to Washington state after forming a new partnership with local installer West Seattle Natural Energy. The first install came last month as a home in Port Orchard (pictured above).
From its office in West Seattle, West Seattle Natural Energy is a family and veteran-owned and operated company providing design, installation and maintenance for solar PV systems in Washington State.
Designed and manufactured in Williston, VT, AllEarth Solar Trackers use innovative GPS and wireless technology to follow the sun throughout the day to boost solar energy production by up to 45 percent over roof-top installations and more than 30 percent of fixed ground-mounted systems. The pole mounted, grid connected solar systems are designed for homes, businesses, non-profits, and commercial-scale installations.
A single 6 kW solar tracker will produce enough to power most of an average Seattle-area home.
“We are excited to be partnering with the team at West Seattle Natural Energy and to be able to provide our product to Washington State. Designed to produce more energy from the sun, our trackers make an investment in solar practical and affordable for homeowners and businesses,” said David Blittersdorf, president and CEO of AllEarth Renewables.
Have you checked out our YouTube page?
We have a ton video interviews and additional content on our YouTube page. Recently we debuted Power Forward! -- a collaboration with BayWa r.e. to discuss higher level industry topics as well as best practices / trends for running a solar business today.
Our longer running side project is The Pitch -- in which we have awkward discussions with solar manufacturers and suppliers about their new technology and ideas so that you don't have to. We've discusses everything from residential rail-less deck attaching and home solar financing to large-scale energy storage value stacking and utility-driven new home solar + storage microgrids.
We also post our Project of the Year announcements there! Interviews with this year's winners will be up starting the week of Nov. 8. Head there and subscribe today to stay on top of all this extra stuff.
