Alternative Electrical Systems (AES) is a division of Carnahan Electric Ltd, (CA Lic 423462) a company long-established in the Placerville area. You can call us at 530.642.2476. Prior to year 2000, Y2K concerns caused many customers of Carnahan Electric to ask about emergency power options. Owner John Carnahan already offered solar panels and generators for emergency back-up, so options were available, and when Y2K concerns faded, Alternative Electrical Systems was started to continue addressing this need.
Alternative Electrical Systems has a reputation for helping you get what you need: no more, no less. We do not represent any one particular product at the expense of “forgetting” to mention one that may be a better choice. We stay up-to-date on equipment and can explain when you need the latest and when you can hold back. We work with certified electricians at Carnahan Electric, and that should matter; you are investing in quality equipment that you can rely on, installed by a company that will be here when you have questions or need technical help. You can be confident in your decision to invest in reliable power, properly installed by a company you can trust to do things the right way. Please call us at 530 642 2476, or send us a note with your questions.Alternative Electrical Systems is all about getting you set up to be prepared for most anything! If you commute to Sacramento, would it be in inconvenience to have the power go out at 6:30 a.m. on a week day? If you one of the growing number of people who work at home, what would you do if the power went out for the day? There are many reasons to plan for the expected unexpected; we know that the power will go out at times, we just don’t know when.
