Solar Energy for Businesses - Trust an Established Expert

Advanced Energy Systems (AES) is Oregon's most successful commercial Solar Electric and Solar Water Heating contractor, by virtue of the most installed generating capacity of any solar contractor working in Oregon. We believe in what we are doing, and that shows in our work. Since 2002, our team has worked exclusively on renewable energy projects. Our electricians and technicians have honed their skills over the years on various facets of installation specifically relevant to solar energy applications. AES has remained on the leading edge of new technologies and techniques. We have a thorough understanding of the shifting landscape of available incentives.

We offer a "turnkey" product, meaning that we can manage your project from start to finish, beginning with a conceptual design all the way through the final inspection. Our process starts with a solar site survey. Once we have determined site feasibility, we will design a system that maximizes the return on your investment, and fulfills the goal of supplying clean renewable power to your business. We will present a detailed proposal and explain our choices of what technologies to use. As a strong proponent of locally sourced materials, we promote "made in Oregon or "made in America" components. We have found that most clients prefer this. By request we can provide any components from worldwide leading suppliers. Over the life of your renewable energy system, we will provide local service and support.
