After installing solar panels on his own home nearly two decades ago, Mike Jackson knew he wanted to help others reap the benefits of solar technology.
And with government credits and utility rebates currently at their peak, savings on a system can be anywhere from 50 to 70 percent.
In 1993, Jackson, a licensed electrical contractor, started Apex Alternative Energy, at 47 E. Brown Road, in Star Valley.
The team at Apex Alternative Energy works with residential and commercial customers, both large and small, switching new and existing structures to solar power.
“When you do business at Apex Alternative Energy, I maximize your investment by showing you how switching to solar power is the best investment anyone can make,” Jackson said. “I utilize state-of-the-art equipment and offer the best prices by using various products and suppliers.”
Jackson added that he is not a salesman, but rather a manager that monitors a job from beginning to end, including the design, evaluation and installation stages.
“We offer products with a proven track record of quality and performance, including SunPower products which deliver up to 50 percent more power per unit area than conventional solar panels,” he said.
“The SunPower panel efficiency is the highest commercially available for residential applications.”
In addition to being a licensed electrician, after in-depth evaluation with SunPower, Jackson was awarded an authorized dealer certification. After attending the Solar Energy International grid-tie course, Jackson can also now work with various solar manufacturers. Further training with the North American Board of Certified Energy Practitioners was completed through New Mexico State University.
