The dealer partnership between local installer Solar Pro and solar tracker manufacturer AllEarth Renewables of Williston was announced today.
With offices in Arlington since 2008, Solar Pro is a Vermont-based renewable energy company that provides full service solar engineering, design, installation and equipment services for homes, businesses, municipal buildings, and nonprofits.
The partnership will bring the locally manufactured solar trackers to southwestern Vermont. The company also services upstate New York and western Massachusetts.
Solar Pro's first residential solar PV installation was on Demody Road in Bennington. They have tracker installations scheduled in the coming weeks for Arlington and Manchester.
Designed and manufactured in Vermont, AllSun 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. The ground-mounted solar systems are designed for homes, businesses, non-profits, and commercial-scale installations.
A single 4.2 kW solar tracker will produce enough to power the majority of an average New England home.
"We are committed to meeting our growing customers' needs and the AllSun Tracker is an excellent addition to our installation
Lee added, "It's really exciting to represent such a reputable and innovative leader in the solar industry and the fact that AllSun Tracker systems were developed and manufactured here in Vermont makes me proud."
Now is a great time for Vermonters to go solar and we are excited to be partnering with Solar Pro and to be able to provide our product to southwestern Vermont. Designed to produce more energy from the sun, our trackers make solar practical and affordable for homeowners and businesses," said David Blittersdorf, president and CEO of AllEarth Renewables.
The AllSun Tracker was selected as a top-10 green product for 2012 by BuildingGreen magazine.
AllEarth Renewables, named Vermont's fastest growing company in 2010 and 2011, employs 24 full-time staff and five seasonal staff, and has designed, manufactured, and installed over 1,300 complete grid-connected solar tracker systems. Blittersdorf, AllEarth Renewables CEO, was recently listed among 25 of "America's Most Promising Social Entrepreneurs of 2011" by Business Week.
