Alternative Energy Company Opens Branch in Staunton

Posted: Updated:

The people of Staunton have a new alternative energy option right in their own backyard.

Altenergy just opened its doors near downtown Staunton. The solar company offers sustainable energy in the form of solar panels to provide electricity and solar thermal energy to give homeowners hot water.    

Branch Manager Joe Sadonis compares installing solar panels to getting replacement windows.

"It is a long-term investment - typically 5 to 7 percent return on investment after a period of time. After a while your electricity is going to be free," Sadonis said.

Sadonis says technology continues to get better, driving the cost down.
