The Alternative Energy Store, providers of cost competitive, high-quality alternative energy products and educational opportunities on renewable energy topics, ranked 24th in the Hardware/Home Improvement Category and 470th in Web Sales.
Internet Retailer's definitive ranking and analysis of America's 500 largest e-retailers is based on annual 2006 Internet sales, researched by Internet Retailer and confirmed by retailers.

Sascha Deri, president and one of Alternative Energy Store’s founders, “We’re thrilled at being named a top e-retailer. It means that we have made our mark in the e-retail industry and we believe we are the first to do so in our rapidly growing industry of renewable energy. This recognition goes beyond sales for us, it is indicative that there is a greater awareness about renewable energy and more people are opting to use renewable energy such as solar, wind, or hydro power.”
“Their annual growth rate of 30 percent is testimony to Alternative Energy Store’s ability to find a profitable retailing niche and stick with it,” says Internet Retailer editor-in-chief Kurt Peters. ”We expect to see Alternative Energy Store move up steadily in the rankings in the years to come.”
