What we do

Bold Alternatives is the largest solar installer based in Northeast Ohio and creates solar energy solutions for commercial, residential, and nonprofit customers. What makes us different is that we are based out of Northeast Ohio and take the time to design solutions that will create the maximum amount of electricity possible, install the system, and monitor the system to make sure it is preforming at peak output. We work with the our clients to create a custom financial solution. Depending on the type of property, we will recommend one or two of our four different ways to fund a project. Explore our Learn page to understand more about different ways to fund a solar project and what way would be best for you. In addition to installing and monitoring systems, Bold Alternatives can assist new and current solar PV system owners with sREC registration and sales as well as Operations & Maintenance Contracts. 

Located in Northeast Ohio, we assure all potential customers that it is possible for solar arrays to produce electricity in our cool cloudy climate. Solar arrays actually work better in cooler climates and still produce electricity when it is cloudy. For example, one of our recent residential projects on a home in Auburn produces more than enough electricity to power their home. This customer sells the excess electricity to the grid and receives a credit from the utility company.

Our experienced team provides superior customer service in solar technology. Each system is custom designed and professionally installed to ensure our systems produce more kWh than installed kW. In other words, for every watt that is installed, our systems will produce the maximum amount of electricity. For example; one of our 104 kW systems produces between 120,000 and 136,000 kWh annually.
