Altsys Solar Inc Overview

Altsys Solar Inc. is a solar energy company that operates out of Tulare, California. The Company operates in the residential and commercial grid-tied systems and Hybrid Solar Systems for Residential Solar. They also do energy monitoring.

They describe themselves as a ‘developing small business’ and rely substantially on word of mouth referrals. They have achieved ninety-two percent five-star ratings. In 2007, they had only three employees, but today they employ over twenty people and have been in business for over fifteen years.



Altsys Solar Services and Features

The Company offers a wide range of products. In line with California State Codes, Altsys Solar offers a ten-year warranty and a free repair service to equipment damaged due to installation faults.

Altsys Solar operates mainly in the Central Valley Area. They pride themselves on providing their customers with a comprehensive quotation detailing the costs of individual items.

They recommend two types of Solar Panels:

  1.  The German-manufactured Hanwha Q Cells Q. Peak -G4.1 has an efficiency rating of over eighteen percent and comes with a twenty-five-year performance warranty, and the Longi LR6-60PB has similar qualities.
  2. The Longi Solar Panel, which is manufactured in China and is a mono-silicon type panel. The Company was founded twenty-two years ago.


Altsys Solar Costs

While the business primarily focuses on residential rooftop installations, they also provide Ground Mounted installations for commercial sites. They use top-quality American and European products and solar panels manufactured in China, emphasising quality above price. However, they suggest that because they can source the solar panels wholesale, they can price their services very competitively.

Reviews suggest that the Company has a very open policy regarding project quoting. In addition, Altsys Solar maintains that they pay special attention to providing the client with detailed and accurate costs for each item.

The Company also has a policy of offering potential clients alternative products to suit the financial constraints of the client.

They offer financing packages ranging from secured and unsecured loans to power purchase agreements. They also operate the PACE (Property Assessed Clean Energy loan system) in conjunction with the relevant government programs.

Reviews suggest that customers felt they had received good value from Altsys Solar and the prices charged were fair and appropriate for the quality of the products supplied.

Most reviews were positive regarding the service levels during the installation phases and post-purchase performance.



Altsys Solar is a certified BBB Company and a member of the Solar Energy Industries Association.

Reviews emphasised the commitment of the Company to dealing promptly with customer queries. 

They have manufacturer partnerships with LG Home Batteries and are Certified installers of the LG Home Battery. They also partner with Eguana Technologies,  a Canadian Company that supplies power control equipment.

The reputation of Altsys Solar indicates a Company that prides itself in dealing honestly and openly with customers.

They have valid C46 and C10 Certificates and have a valid Californian License, CA #944549. The business was incorporated in Two-thousand and nine.

The Website of Altsys Solar provides contact details such as phone numbers and addresses. In addition, there is a contact button on their Webpage to facilitate easy submission of queries and questions.

Email addresses for the CEO, Jack Ramsy, and the Sales Manager, Ricardo Armandarez, are also provided on their website.



Almost all reviews suggested that the Company was very good at responding to queries and provided efficient means of contact. In addition, it seems that many customers were very impressed with the reaction speed of Altsys Solar.

They conform to State law regarding warranties on their products. One review was very complimentary of the way Altsys Solar responded to an installation fault. The fault was repaired within twenty-four hours.

Awesome Company – Awesome Service….
Awesome Company - Awesome Service. I not only received a quote from AltSys Solar, I had three more I sifted through as well. Decided to stay local and small business instead of feeding the corporate beasts. All timelines were on time, maybe a few days that were off a couple. The crew completed the install QUICKLY and had everything ready to go within days. SCE took the longest which we expected and once completed and three months later now I am receiving a negative charge on my SCE bill, that is kinda cool! I was very happy with the service and follow through and would recommend AltSys Solar for any of your solar projects. Go AltSys Solar, well done!

I made an appointment with…
I made an appointment with Eric for a solar project estimate, but he was a NO SHOW. I arranged my work schedule to meet with him which resulted in a waste of my time and money. A simple call to reschedule and/or inform me about any unanticipated delay or other issue would have been the professional thing to do.

What a terrible company. We’ve…
What a terrible company. We've had solar installed for four months from this company and have received ZERO benefits. Our bills have doubled and the company has been ignoring us for weeks. Even after a conversation with PG&E, which led to us finding out that Eric Sustaita has not even processed out paperwork with PG&E. So after telling us we were on solar, not turning in out paperwork properly, they have now been ignoring us. Terrible customer service.

After a living nightmare with…
After a living nightmare with another company in Visalia and hours upon hours of my own time attempting to work with that other company I finally found AltSys Solar and it has been a blessing. Ben was able to assist me greatly as well as Eric and after a whole year of wasted time these guys were able to commission my battery for my solar since that other company just wasted my time. I appreciate Everyone at AltSys Solar and am just thrilled that my backup battery is finally up and running.
