The Asato Family

Ronald and Patti Asato, returning AEI customers, worked with representative Jeff Lum to install a 31-panel PV system on their home. According the Mrs. Asato, "The one thing about Jeff that I really like is that he's not a high pressure salesman. He told us what the advantages were and about the product, but he left it up to us. There was no pressure, which was a big plus." This is their second PV system from AEI. The first system was installed on a home that they now rent out.

The Asato Family got quotes from three different solar companies. As a friend of Bruce, the owner of AEI, Ronald knew that the company is always looking into new technologies and that it provides excellent customer service and high quality products. For all of these reasons, the Asato's ultimately decided to work with AEI again. According to Mrs. Asato, "The installation was so smooth both times. They came in and next thing you know, they're done. They are really efficient and they explain stuff to you."

The Asato Family's electric bills are now $18/month, a savings of more than $250. The PV panels provided the family with comfort during the hot summer, allowing them to run the AC with worrying about the electric bill. Mrs. Asato recently referred a coworker who ordered an efficient air conditioner and PV system. "I tell people that PV is a no brainer. It pays for itself through monthly savings," said Mrs. Asato.

    The Adams Family

    The Adams Family worked with AEI representative Jeff Lum to purchase a 10-panel PV system.

    While Mr. Adams looked into a few other solar companies, he ultimately decided to work with AEI because the company made things simple, convenient, and easy to understand. He was so happy with the installment and service that he recommended AEI to his parents.

    The Adams Family's monthly bills went from $600/month to $200/month. He plans to install more panels in the future.

    The Benros Family

    The Benros Family, a first time Alternate Energy customer, decided to purchase a PV system because they wanted to reduce their electric bills. 

    AEI representative Dave Thompson showed them all of their options, walked them through how to get tax credits, and worked with them on the set up and installation. The Benros Family ultimately decided to hire AEI because their entire PV system is from Mitsubishi.

    Overall, the Benros Family had a "great experience" and have referred four people to AEI since their system was installed.

    The Matsumoto Family

    The Matsumoto Family, a first time Alternate Energy customer, worked with AEI representative Roy Skaggs to purchase an energy efficient air conditioner and compressor. Mr. Matsumoto wanted AC because it was so hot in the house.

    Out of all of their options, AEI gave them the best possible quote for a quiet, energy efficient AC that included a HEPA filter. The installation was seamless and even with the AC running all day and night, the family's montly electric bill went down.

    According to Mrs. Matsumoto, "Roy was very responsive. It's rare to find a sales rep that remembers you one year later. I didn't feel like I was speaking with a sales rep, it felt like I was speaking with a member of my family."'
