Altenergy launched 15 years ago as a two-man team installing solar thermal hot water and solar PV systems in the Central Virginia area.

Company founders Paul Risberg and Matthew Dunay have since expanded the company to a total of seven branches across the U.S. with more than 50 full-time employees.

“Altenergy has experienced exceptional growth and development over the past 15 years,” said Ryann Coles, marketing director for Altenergy. “Moving forward, our focus will remain on offering the highest quality, customizable solar energy solutions for commercial and residential clients.”

The company has successfully installed more than 1,200 projects totaling over 20MW of clean energy for federal, state and local governments, private industry and residential clients.

“It has been my pleasure to be around dedicated people who want to change the world for the better, by creating a sustainable place to live and work,” Risberg said.
