Alternate Energy Technologies (AET) announces its market expansion initiative as it forms its latest strategic partnership with Green Plumbers USA. As part of this partnership, the two entities will design and execute a solar thermal training course specifically for plumbers to learn the installation best practices for solar water and space heating/cooling systems which are manufactured by AET.
More specifically, Green Plumbers USA will be initiating a national educational awareness and enrollment program, allowing their members to learn the processes of installing, servicing, and selling AET thermal heating/cooling systems, the only product suite on the market that is 100% American-made and federally approved. These AET products can be purchased directly online, and offer complete package solutions including racking and mounting hardware, thermal collectors, water storage tanks, and all components required for the installation.
“This partnership between AET Solar and Green Plumbers has the potential to bring affordable energy and water conservation solutions to customers throughout the US. This partnership represents the first time that a national plumbing organization has partnered with a US manufacturer to deliver quality and value to home and business owners alike,” said Andrew East, EVP of AET Solar.
AET has manufactured and provided products for more than 100,000 residential thermal system installations over the course of decades. The solar energy industry leader will work with the students of Green Plumbers during hands-on lab installation training, utilizing the same systems that they will sell and install to create realistic simulations and work encounters. AET will also provide students with the best practices our instructors have learned over decades in the industry.
"Green Plumbers has worked closely with AET Solar for quite some time now and the time to formally recognize our partnership and take the focus on solar to the next level was right. AET and Andrew East have been strong supporters of our educational program. It just made sense to move forward with a partner that has the same vision. Our Green Plumbers are looking for ways to increase knowledge and revenue and AET Solar provides a precise avenue to both. We look forward to working with AET Solar on making sure all Green Plumbers have the opportunity to expand their business with solar. This Partnership shows our commitment to the industry and a sustainable future for America," said Jon Cruz, EVP of Green Plumbers.
In this manner, Green Plumber USA members will occupy an advantageous position over other local plumbing outfits by being well versed in solar thermal technology, as well as being able to calculate the energy and monetary saving potential of the systems to prospective customers.
“Water, like energy, is a precious and underpriced commodity in the US; providing customers with conservation and production strategies, this consortium will proactively seek to rebuild stronger domestic infrastructures, while informing and educating customers on how to best manage that infrastructure,” concluded East.
AET manufactures solar thermal collectors, solar pool heating panels, water heating systems with tanks, pumps, controls, and other system components. AET is a pre-approved federal vendor and works with government entities, and is an Energy Star rated appliance. It also works with vendors to offer engineering and permitting assistance as well as financing options, and has more than 35 years of experience as a trusted industry name.
