solar is simple!

As the sun shines, the solar panels produce electrons that are captured by wires in the modules. These are connected to an inverter where electricity is converted from DC to AC and then fed to your home electric panel. If the solar generates more than you need, the excess energy is fed back to the grid and where the kilowatt hours are credited on your electric bill (see video on "Net Metering"). 

Verify if your location is viable for solar.

Solar systems are fully automatic

that means virtually no maintenance

To explore if solar is a good fit, we will:

During your site visit we will:

+ Confirm panel layout, looking for obstacles and solutions, 
+ Identify a path to bring power from the roof to the electrical panel,
+ Strategize electrical connection options,
+ Confirm best way to set up online monitoring.

Connect us with your architect or GC and we can work together to design solar into the original scope of work!

"excellent value-added services to make our experience easy and cleaR"

 I had been delaying the decision to go solar for 10 years. Up until 2019, street-facing solar was disallowed by the City, and due to Park Ridge becoming a SolSmart community, this ordinance was changed to allow street-facing panels.

Also, my roof had little sun much of the day, due a mature silver maple (6’ Diameter trunk) on our parkway. In September, the City inspected this maybe 100-year-old tree on the parkway (City property) and said it had to come down. I was saddened by this loss, but was told there was nothing we could do, so I went in the house and called Lisa Albrecht to get a PV installation quote. A few weeks later, my street- facing roof was rocking panels, and we were connected to the grid, net metering.  (...) Lisa provided excellent value-added services to make our experience easy and clear – sizing the system, managing Celestar Solar, taking care of the paperwork and regularly providing key event updates.  We are proud of our investment and are enjoying monitoring energy production, greenhouse gas reduction and net metering savings.


value, experience, communication

"You can have confidence that your project will be done right, on budget and on time."

Excellent company to work with. Very knowledgeable about the Solar industry and State of Illinois regulations/requirements, they handled all the paperwork permits, construction scheduling, etc.. They answered all my questions in a timely manner. You can have confidence that your project will be done right, on budget and on time.


knowledgeable, prepared, experienced

"She answered all my questions-and got answers when she didn't know."

Lisa provides a very in-depth service. Starting from the initial design phase, where she was careful to address both myself and my wife. (Other contractors failed in this area.) She answered all my questions-and got answers when she didn't know. Her careful monitoring of the install process and follow-up afterward was exceptional. She knows her install crew and it shows. Definitely a big step up from the "solar carpetbaggers" which have descended on the Chicago area recently drawn by the generous rebates and incentives. For those of us on the ComEd RRTP (Residential Real Time Pricing) plan, she is knowledgeable of the arbitrage opportunities it presents. I have recommended her to many people, including my own family.


Quality, Responsiveness, Value

 "she personally monitors all systems she installs. "

"I have had my solar panels since June, 2019 and LOVE using the sun's energy to power my home as well as my EV. I chose All Bright Solar over the competition after meeting the owner, Lisa. She had years of experience in the solar industry, and took the time to come to my home and explain all the details involved in permitting and installation. Equally important to me was the fact that she is an active member of Climate Reality Chicago and truly cares about our climate future. The installers were fantastic! They worked efficiently and competently as a team and were friendly and personable in the process. After installation, Lisa has continued to be involved. She was the first person to notice a performance problem with my system because she personally monitors all systems she installs. She then made sure my system was up and running asap. Lisa made sure I received all the credits available for my system and my system will pay for itself in 6 years. That's twice as fast as panel installation in other states that I have researched so NOW is the time to do this."
