Who we are...

Control Alt Energy, LLC is a family owned and operated small business located in Schuylkill County PA, founded by Ed and Annette Woll.


Ed Woll President of Control Alt Energy, LLC pictured with his wife, co-founder, and treasurer Annette.

We founded our business in February of 2006 to do our part while two of our children were serving with the US Army in IRAQ.  After obtaining dealer training offered by Energy Alternatives in Victoria BC; we founded the business on the principle of providing residents of Schuylkill and nearby counties with the means to reduce their electric bill.  We would accomplish this goal by employing readily available proven technology such as solar PV, Solar thermal, and wind turbines.  We firmly believe today as we did then, the only way to get America's sons and daughters out of the Middle East is through Energy Independence.

We support our troops and pray for everyoneís safe return.

Today both Greg and Ashley are out of the military and assist with the business.
