Meet the Crew at All Energy Solar - January

It's the start of a New Year at All Energy Solar, and as we're planning for the future, we're taking a look at how we did in last year. At the beginning of 2022, we were proud to announce the major milestones of our 6,000th solar installation and our 200th employee, and we're excited to see how the final numbers will roll out this time around.

As our company grows, we want to keep the family-owned, family-friendly culture envisioned by our founders. We're proud of the exceptional team that we've built and continue today with the introductions to some of our teammates. You can see our first installment from August, as well as Meet the Crew from September, the teams we met in October, the great people we saw in November and the lineup from December.
