What's the Difference Between altE Store and altE Direct?
Our retail arm, altE Store, services Do-It-Yourselfers, Off-Grid'ers, hobbyists, and students with superb knowledge and friendliness, while our wholesale division, altE Direct, provides personal service and expertise to professional installers and system integrators.
altE's website stands alone in the sheer quantity of educational articles, reference materials, calculators, educational videos, useful tips and detailed product specifications it provides its customers. Our product management staff dedicates it's time to adding new information and making it as accurate and complete as possible so that our customers can make the most educated buying decision.
Our technical sales folks are some of the best trained in our neck of the industry. Nearly all of our sales staff has taken the NABCEP PV Entry Level Exam, and every one that has, has passed.
Throughout the year our sales folks not only stay sharp by attending technical and national code trainings but also participate in installations. Occasionally, you'll even find our guys running experiments on renewable energy gear in the mysterious altE 'Labs'.
