The Worcester Business Journal has been recognizing companies in central Massachusetts for a number of years, offering the business community a glimpse into the success stories and strategies used by all of these companies. According to the Worcester Business Journal, "The companies on this year's list have paved their way to success with varying combinations of hard work, forethought and imagination -- and many of them stress the importance of relationship-building."

The Alternative Energy Store exemplifies many of these traits as the founders showed forethought by becoming a part of a fast growing market of smart energy manufacturing and retailing. By offering a wide selection of alternative energy products from energy saving light bulbs to solar panels and wind turbines, they appeal to anyone in the market for energy efficient products.

"We have worked hard this year to keep up with our growth and plan for the future simultaneously," said Deri. "It has been challenging, and has required a lot of hard work from our partners and our team but we are having a great time rising to the challenge and hope to continue to grow at this rate in the coming years!"
