Boxborough, Massachusetts (May, 2019) - altE Store, a Boxborough-based distributor of solar energy products and systems, turned 20 years old this May.

Today altE employs 29 people and does over $24 million a year in business, with customers across the country and around the world.


Founding CEO Sascha Deri reflects on this milestone, "Since 1999 we have helped out over a quarter of a million people across this beautiful planet of ours - making renewable do-able on person at a time."
