Why Allterra Stands Apart

Allterra’s distinguishing factor is it’s unique approach to business and solar. Allterra prominently focuses on providing the best solution for every client. That is why Allterra is a proponent of owning your solar system rather than leasing it. Other solar companies tend to recommend PPA or lease agreements because they are easier to sell. Letting a finance company own the equipment limits homeowner’s options and provides only a fraction of the benefits owning does. Allterra will not sell you solar if you are not a good fit. As a referral-based business, customer loyalty is critical to our continued success.

Internally, Allterra strives to create the best working environment possible.  We believe the people at Allterra are integral to Allterra’s success.  We offer healthcare, retirement savings, paid time off, competitive wages, paid driving time to and from job sites, and routinely have staff appreciation events to acknowledge team members doing great work. It is a balancing act to reward staff for great work and reward clients with great services and prices. We hope Allterra exemplifies a better way of doing business where community involvement is part of our marketing plan and support for other locally owned businesses is part of our procurement approach. Businesses can be part of the solution or part of the problem.

Community and Environmental Impact

Allterra has installed at over 4,000 homes and businesses throughout the Central Coast and Silicon Valley and our clients save over $11 million per year.
That is a lot of clean renewable energy being generated. Not only does solar power reduce carbon emissions, it also makes our community healthier and more resilient. With wildfires and extreme storms wreaking havoc on our local infrastructure, the need for decentralized power generation is more important than ever.
Lastly, solar and battery backup represent the only viable alternative to runaway utility prices that have increased 125% over the last decade.
