    Client Feedback:
    I am a high school teacher and we have purchased two RA solar power chargers to use in our Virtual Enterprise program. We originally bought these as display products to use at trade shows, but we have found out it is an amazing charger. It keeps a charge, even when it is stored in a dark closet. It does a great job charging my phone. I was so impressed, I asked for my own charger for Christmas and carry it in my purse. We hike a lot and I am glad to have a solar powered charger that can be charged in the sun. Windsoleil has excellent customer service and has been very helpful to my students. We have ordered from them twice and both times the products are received within three days. I highly recommend this company and their products!

    Ailey Solar

    Electric rates are inevitably going to go up. By installing a solar electric system you are buying your electricity for the next 25 years in advance. In a few years you will have made back the cost of installation. For the rest of the life of the system, you will get free electricity. Furthermore, you can get 26% of the cost of the system back as a federal income tax credit as well as receive the benefit if SREC income for your solar production.

    Global warming has already caused serious damage both here in the U.S. and around the world. We need to move away from burning fossil fuels as rapidly as possible. Getting some or all of your electric power from the sun is a great way to help. Illinois has plenty of sun and plenty of good roofs. We could get a lot of our energy from the sun.

    The prices of photovoltaic modules have dropped dramatically in last couple of years. In addition, solar system costs are at historic lows. Some municipalities have also reduced the permitting costs.

    The SREC program in Illinois reduces in the value of the benefit to customers as each tier is filled with homes and businesses purchasing solar systems. The earlier an adopter of solar at the moment in Illinois, the more valuable the SREC credits and the greater the SREC income for the customer.

    We want to see a lot of solar electric systems installed in Illinois. We are fighting hard to keep our costs as low as possible.

    We follow best practices regardless of whether they are technically required by code. We make sure that our installations will give you the maximum electrical production at the lowest possible price while maintaining quality.

    Fresh Coast Solar

    After years of experience developing and installing solar projects throughout the Midwest, founders Jeremy Vavrik and Adam Kay formed Fresh Coast Solar in 2018. They met while working for a solar firm in Michigan, and had a shared vision of returning to their native Chicago to build a solar business. Their goal was accelerating the adoption of clean, renewable energy through efficient design, installation and project management services.

    The partners started with a van and a plan. Their motivation and industry expertise gave them an understanding of the multifaceted complexities of bringing clean energy projects to fruition, from point of sale to energization. They focused on this niche, and were soon securing residential and commercial installation projects.

    Just as the new company was finding success, they had a chance connection with the founder of Altimus Capital, a large holding company with successful operations in multiple energy sector markets. The potential synergy was ideal and Fresh Coast Solar was brought under the Altimus Capital umbrella, which supports our mission of shaping the success of the Illinois’ Future Energy Jobs Act and becoming a major player in the Midwest’s energy transformation.

    Madison Street Energy

    Madison Street Energy (“MSE”) is an employee owned company founded by seasoned energy professionals that have worked on originating, developing, acquiring, financing, constructing, owning and operating numerous large scale wind, solar, and energy storage projects which provide thousands of megawatts of clean energy throughout the United States.

    Since leasing land is an essential first step for every proposed energy project, the MSE’s founders’ have gained a deep understanding of the value of these wind and solar leases which require project owners to guarantee to pay a predetermined set amount of rent over terms ranging from 20-50 years. In addition, MSE’s first hand experiences with landowners has taught them that oftentimes they have a strong desire to receive a upfront cash payment for leasing their land but that project owners have universally rejected requests to pay rent in any manner other than in annual installments over the 20-50 years.

    As a result of these unique experiences and knowledge, MSE was formed to serve a currently non-existent market that would allow landowners to receive their desired upfront payments while at the same time providing MSE investors with the opportunity to realize the value of these stable income streams.

    MSE acquires interests in rental streams owed by energy companies who have entered into long term wind and solar leases with landowners in order to construct for wind turbines or solar projects the leased land. MSE provides Landowners with the option to monetize these long term leases by making lump sum cash payments in exchange for the landowner assigning the rights to future rental payments to MSE.

    As a result of MSE’s founder’s extensive experiences working on developing utility scale wind and solar projects, MSE has a unique knowledge of the industry and relationships with those involved in renewable energy sector.

    MSE understands that turning project ideas into reality requires the time, effort, involvement, cooperation, and compromises of countless numbers of landowners, developers, governmental agencies, financial institutions and others (the “Stakeholders”).

    The mere scale and number of parties involved or impacted by these projects inevitably results in difficult situations that require knowledgeable and reasonable partners. We’ve been through these situations countless times and we can guarantee you that MSE is and always will be that knowledgeable and reasonable partner in any opportunity we are involved in.
