New energy partnership brings solar tracker throughout northern New England

WILLISTON, Vermont . . . September 14, 2011 . . . A new partnership will bring the innovative Vermont-manufactured AllSun Tracker solar electric system to homeowners and businesses throughout northern New England.

The dealer partnership between installer ReVision Energy and solar tracker manufacturer AllEarth Renewables was announced today.

Designed and manufactured in Williston, VT, AllSun Trackers use innovative GPS and wireless solar technology to follow the sun throughout the day to boost solar energy production by up to 45 percent.  The ground-mounted solar systems are designed for homes, businesses, non-profits, and commercial-scale installations.

In northern Vermont, a single 4.2 kW solar tracker will produce an average of 490kWh of energy per month—enough to power the majority of an average New England home. 

With offices in Exeter, NH, Portland and Liberty, ME, ReVision Energy is a full service renewable energy contracting company that provides solar engineering, design, installation and equipment services for homes, businesses, municipal buildings and nonprofits.  The partnership will bring the locally manufactured solar trackers throughoutNew Hampshire and Maine.  AllEarth Renewables previously established a Vermont-based dealer network for their energy system.

“Committed to meeting our growing clients’ needs and interests, the Vermont-made AllSun Tracker has been an excellent addition to our installation hardware. More and more people are excited about the prospect of creating their own source of energy and with the AllSun Tracker they can optimize their production yielding a better return on investment” said Phil Coupe, partner of ReVision Energy.

“We are excited to be partnering with the experienced team at ReVision Energy and to be able to provide our product to other northeastern states.  Designed and manufactured to produce more energy from the sun, our trackers make solar practical and affordable for homeowners, businesses, and non-profits,” said David Blittersdorf, president and CEO of AllEarth Renewables.  “With more than 800 trackers installed in Vermont alone, this new partnership will continue to help make solar possible throughout northern New England.”

The first AllSun Tracker installed by ReVision Energy will be formally commissioned at an event on September 21 at Lakes Region Community College in Laconia, NH.

AllEarth employs 25 full-time staff and five seasonal staff, and has manufactured and installed over 800 solar tracker systems.  Blittersdorf, the renewable energy company’s CEO, was recently listed among 25 of “America's Most Promising Social Entrepreneurs of 2011” by Business Week and the company was ranked by Vermont Business Magazine as the state’s fastest growing company over the last five years.
