WILTON, CT -- Solar Works, Inc. and SolarWrights, Inc, announced the new name of their united enterprise - Alteris Renewables, Inc. The name change is intended to better convey the company's expanded offering of renewable energy solutions that include solar electric, solar thermal, and wind energy systems.
"Alteris Renewables is well positioned to play a meaningful role in the growing renewable energy industry," said Ron French, President of Alteris. "Bringing together Solar Works and SolarWrights under one name will allow us to build upon our growth and experience as the two largest commercial and residential integrators in the Northeast region. We will now be able to offer an expanded suite of renewable energy solutions for the entire region in addition to our mainstay of solar."
Wilton, CT will serve as the corporate and commercial headquarters with Bristol, RI serving as the operation center for the residential division. The company will maintain its extensive sales and service network, with additional offices in Connecticut, Vermont, New Hampshire, New York, Rhode Island, and Massachusetts. Earlier this month, the company opened a new sales and production office in Natick, MA.
In addition to solar electric and solar thermal expertise, the company will provide wind energy solutions through the integration of WindWrights, the wind division of the former SolarWrights. The scale of the new entity will enable advantages in supply chain management, and will also allow the company to further enhance its superior customer service and extensive sales and marketing capabilities.

Solar Works was founded in 1980, and SolarWrights in 2000, bringing together many years of renewable energy expertise and a seasoned staff of over 100 employees to provide a full spectrum of sales, service, and support to residential and commercial customers in the Northeast.
