A new partnership will bring the innovative AllEarth Solar Tracker solar electric system to homeowners and businesses in Washington State.


The dealer partnership between local installer West Seattle Natural Energy and solar tracker manufacturer AllEarth Renewables was announced today.

West Seattle Natural Energy installed the first American-made solar tracker last month at a home in Port Orchard.

From its office in West Seattle, West Seattle Natural Energy is a family and veteran-owned and operated company providing design, installation, and maintenance for solar PV systems in Washington State.

Designed and manufactured in Williston, VT, AllEarth Solar 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 and more than 30 percent of fixed ground-mounted systems. The pole mounted, grid connected solar systems are designed for homes, businesses, non-profits, and commercial-scale installations.

A single 6 kW solar tracker will produce enough to power most of an average Seattle-area home.

"There is an old Buddhist saying, 'If you light a lamp for someone, it will also brighten your own path.' At West Seattle Natural Energy, we view our work as a mission that goes beyond a simple profit motive. We truly believe that providing solar energy is a vital part in securing everyone's future," said Keith Hughes, owner of West Seattle Natural Energy.

"We are excited to be partnering with the team at West Seattle Natural Energy and to be able to provide our product to Washington State. Designed to produce more energy from the sun, our trackers make an investment in solar practical and affordable for homeowners and businesses," said David Blittersdorf, president and CEO of AllEarth Renewables.

Among the AllEarth Solar Tracker product awards, the dual axis tracker was named a "Top-10 Green Product" by BuildingGreen magazine and "Top Product of the Year" by Solar Power World.
AllEarth Renewables, a previous Inc 500 company for fastest growing businesses nationwide, has designed, manufactured, and installed over 3,300 solar tracker systems which are installed throughout the United States.

LG Solar Unveils NeON R with Enhanced Aesthetics and Energy Savings

The NeON R module features "Back Contact" cell technology delivering an entirely black panel that is aesthetically pleasing and energy efficient. The cell's seamless, surface blends perfectly into nearly all rooftop designs while the module's electrodes are positioned on the rear of the cell. Using LG's N-type cell structure, the panels produce 365W of energy, up to 7.3kWp, compared to 5.8kWp of the p-type cell. The module's new design minimizes LID, thereby delivering a longer lifespan and increased energy output.
