Aesthetic Green Power is a solar roofing company that manufactures Building Integrated Photovoltaic panels (BIPV) and solar roof tiles called Sunslates and TallSlates. Aesthetic Green Power is heavily involved in sustainability initiatives and believes strongly in the ability of buildings to generate their own electricity while maintaining an elegant appearance. Climate change and the need for society to move to net zero carbon emissions by 2050 is cited as a major motivating factor for the company.
Beginning as Atlantis Energy Systems, Inc., Aesthetic Green Power has been designing and manufacturing solar products for two decades. With Swiss designs and innovations, it established its first plant in Eastern Virginia in 1996 and started selling its products in North America.
In 2007, the plant moved to Poughkeepsie, NY driven by the need for more accessible shipping options. The company continued to grow as it moved forward with the goal to create aesthetically pleasing solar energy options for buildings.
In 2017, Atlantis Energy Systems, Inc. split into two new companies: Aesthetic Green Power and Sustainable Products Development Laboratory (SPD Labs). Today, Aesthetic Green Power controls the marketing and sales portion of the collaboration, while graduate and postgraduate engineering students with SPD Labs (now controlled by Columbia University) will develop the new solar technology and continue the research done by Atlantis Energy Systems. Recently, a vacuum pressure chamber was built for engineering students to conduct more research.
Aesthetic Green Power and SPD Labs are growing companies, and their technology has been installed in sports stadiums, universities, corporate headquarters, town halls, elementary schools, churches, museums, transportation centers, hospitals, parks, and private residences.
Aesthetic Green Power does not offer contractor certification, though they do have specially trained contractors to install the roofing products. Sunslate roof tiles cannot be installed without a licensed contractor because they require a more sophisticated installation process. However, some of their other products, such as Tallslates, can be installed without certification.
As a solar power manufacturer, Aesthetic Green Power works to reduce the amount of carbon emissions in the atmosphere from electricity. By continuously researching and providing new solar energy and heat storage products, they give homeowners a sustainable, environmentally-friendly option for energy production. Their goal is to end the world’s reliance on fossil fuels by designing aesthetically pleasing solar energy technology for both residential and commercial buildings. In fact, they believe strongly in a building’s potential to sustainably provide its own energy, and they cite climate change as a main motivating factor. Aesthetic Green Power is involved in countless green energy initiatives and expresses a strong commitment to the environment for human survival.
Both the Sunslates and TallSlates have a 25-year warranty for roof integrity and a 20-year warranty on power production. For warranties on commercial roofs, an arrangement must be made with Aesthetic Green Power.
