Allterra Solar

Allterra Solar is an all-around proactive company that educates its employees and peers on environmental technology and sustainability. Allterra Solar focuses on services such as solar electric design and build, environmental consulting, groundwater remediation, environmental assessment reports, water systems, and energy efficiency retrofits. Leading by example, Allterra Solar has its own environmental policy. Allterra Solar tracked and calculated its carbon emissions with the help of the City of Santa Cruz, and then became a Monterey Bay Area Certified Green Business. The process was very educational and made the team even more aware of the different ways that business operations can positively, or adversely, affect the environment. Allterra Solar now provides employee alternative transportation solutions, which have resulted in an estimated $200+ savings per month. The company installed energy efficient lighting through the PG&E and CPUC Right Lights program which has already paid for itself and is now saving Allterra Solar over $25 per month on its electric bill. In addition to conducting education and outreach activities such as hands on training in schools for grey water, rain water, and solar electric systems, Allterra Solar is also the Official Sustainability Partner of the Santa Cruz Warriors (a NBA D-League Affiliate).
