Entrepreneur, Sharon Altman, takes helm of Philadelphia area's premier solar installer helping deliver a cleaner & greener Pennsylvania

As a life-long entrepreneur, I have been creating new lines of business for a long time, and I have always prided myself for being on the cutting edge. Now, as CEO of Aztec Solar Power, I am able to offer my current, former and future customers solar energy solutions for unheard of prices

Twenty years after the oil industry's darkest day -- when the Exxon Valdez ran aground spilling over eleven million gallons of the dirtiest source of energy in Prince William Sound -- Aztec Solar Power , Philadelphia's leading clean-energy solar company, welcomes Sharon Altman, as Chief Executive Officer.

"Its been two decades since the infamous oil tanker devastated the lives of thousands in Alaska, but, closer to home in the Delaware Valley, what is more alarming is that the local utility companies plan to lift the cap on energy prices by the as early as 2010," said Ms. Altman. "Energy costs to local consumers are anticipated to soon skyrocket by a rate of more than thirty-percent. Coupled with a hemorrhaging financial climate, both businesses and homeowners are seeking alternative ways to secure their future fiscal and natural environments. The Aztec Solar Power team has an outstanding reputation in the Tri-State real estate industry as a trusted, knowledgeable, renewable energy provider, and I'm thrilled to be on board," she continued.    

Sharon Altman, 61, of the Altman Builders and Developers family, has now entered a new frontier of business development; where builders and real estate developers now recognize solar thermal and solar electric system designs as quickly becoming a customer's number one priority. In fact, Sharon Altman's first success as CEO of Aztec Solar Power was to acquire the first solar permit ever issued by ultra-strict Lower Merion Township (Montgomery County, PA) for a residential ground-mount solar system. Under Sharon Altman's leadership, Aztec is doing their part to address the dire economic and employment landscape across the state as well. The company is working on the construction of a $10 million dollar manufacturing facility in York, PA where they will produce solar panels and create over one hundred new jobs.

Additionally, Sharon Altman has tapped a diverse crew to lead the Aztec Solar Power team; with backgrounds in finance, engineering, government and politics. For instance, they are able to easily translate the often miss-understood federal and state government credit and rebate information. This new information offers residents of the Delaware Valley a unique window of opportunity to install solar energy systems and save significantly on their electric bills while at the same time increasing property value. The Aztec team's breath of knowledge can also demystify renewable energy, electric, engineering and more. Here are a few things the Aztec Solar Power team wants consumers to know:

  •     Solar power is very affordable. Most consumers see ROI in five years.
  •     Twenty-percent of PA's energy must come from renewable energy by 2020.
  •     The Mid-Atlantic region has plenty of sun to support ones utility needs. Snow, darkness and cloud-cover is not an issue because customers are never off of the grid.    
  •     The federal government is currently offering anyone who builds a solar panel     system a 30% rebate.
  •     The state of Pennsylvania has passed and is funding up to 30% in refunds for homeowners and businesses that wish to install PV (electric) systems on their houses or businesses.
  •     In some cases, you can sell power back to the utility company and receive credits, called SREC's (State Renewable Energy Credits), which pay back quarterly.
  •     New Jersey residents and business can also benefit with incentives on Energy Star appliances, solar water heaters and more.

"As a life-long entrepreneur, I have been creating new lines of business for a long time, and I have always prided myself for being on the cutting edge. Now, as CEO of Aztec Solar Power, I am able to offer my current, former and future customers solar energy solutions for unheard of prices," said Sharon Altman. "We, at Aztec, are doing something that helps people, and may even put money back in their pockets when they need it most. And, as we create more and more clean energy, we reduce our dependence on foreign oil and better yet reduce the risk to our environment."
