Net Zero of Chester partners to bring AllSun Trackers to S. VT; SBA honors six small businesses

A dealer partnership between installer Net Zero Renewable Resources LLC of Chester and Williston, VT-based solar tracker manufacturer AllEarth Renewables has been announced that will bring the Vermont-made AllSun Tracker solar systems to southern All earth Net ZeroVermont.

AllSun Trackers use innovative GPS and wireless technology to follow the sun throughout the day to boost solar energy production by up to 45 percent over roof-top installations. The ground-mounted solar systems are designed for homes, businesses, non-profits and commercial-scale installations.
Electrical boards for the tracker are produced in Springfield, VT, at PCM Manufacturing. A single solar tracker will produce enough to power most of an average Vermont home.

“We are committed to helping our customers meet their energy needs, and the AllSun Tracker is an excellent addition to our solar design options. More and more people are excited about generating their own energy, and with the AllSun Tracker they can optimize production and get a better return on their investment,” said Lee Gustafson, managing member of Net Zero Renewable Resources.

The first AllSun Trackers installed by Net Zero Renewable Resources were commissioned on June 4 at a home in Springfield, where solar energy will offset both the home’s traditional electric use as well as the electricity used for geothermal heating. The project, consisting of two 7.2kW trackers, paired high efficiency, 300 watt LG panels with the high efficiency dual-axis tracker.

Net Zero Renewable Resources is a renewable energy company that provides full service solar engineering, design, installation and equipment services for residential and commercial customers.

“We are excited to be partnering with the team at Net Zero Renewable Resources and to be able to provide our product to southern Vermont. Designed to produce more energy from the sun, our trackers make solar practical and affordable for homeowners and businesses,” said David Blittersdorf, president and CEO of AllEarth Renewables.
