After working in the renewable energy sector for several years, we saw a lot of great things happening, and also some things that we wanted to change. Wanting the flexibility to realize these changes, and to ensure that we are giving customers the best quality products possible, we started Nunatak Alternative Energy Solutions.
Living and working at 9,000 ft. has its challenges. We are constantly reminded how Mother Nature can punish equipment. We specialize in designing, installing, and maintaining power systems that will last in harsh environments. We have a broad scope of clients with different needs, from the small hunting cabin, to off-setting a grid-tied house or commercial building. We have worked with the first time homeowner barely getting their first off-grid home powered, or clients like the EPA, US Forest Service, and Outward Bound. We take enormous pride in our work, and it is our goal to creatively problem solve design challenges, and install systems built to last in any environment.
The strong desire for independence led Jay to the path of renewable energy. Working for a variety of contractors launched the idea of Nunatak AES. The experience of being employed by both small and nationally scaled companies on residential and commercial projects gave perspective to the quality piece that Jay and Lena wanted to instill in Nunatak. The challenge of being on top of the ever- changing world of renewables provided the conduit to then become North American Board of Certified Energy Practitioners (NABCEP) Certified PV Installers.
