Carlos Mora

  • Energy Consultant
  • Carlos began his sales and consulting career in 2016 after being inspired by a favorite quote from Confucius: “He who wishes to secure the good of others, has already secured his own.”

Two years later, Carlos was managing multiple telecommunications storefronts and applying his training techniques throughout Northern California. Carlos’ career with Alternative Energy Systems began in 2020. He was seeking a role that would continue to “secure the good for others” and he wanted to promote a company and a product he believed in. Carlos is passionate about reducing his carbon footprint and lessening his dependence on the utility company, so when a close friend suggested looking for a role at AES, Carlos jumped at the chance. It didn’t take long to see that was a perfect fit.

Since his start at AES, Carlos has guided hundreds of customers on their path to a clean energy future and financial savings. Carlos is also bilingual and is able to help share the benefits of solar energy with our Spanish-speaking community members.

In his free time, Carlos volunteers as a local leader in the Chico Rotaract Club to help improve our community and provide safe spaces for people to gather. The rest of his time is dedicated to exploring locally and attempting to “walk” Maine Coon cat, Sharky.

Chelsea Pavone

  • Senior Energy Consultant
  • Chelsea comes to us from RevoluSun, another SunPower® dealer, where she's been riding the "solar coaster" and lots of clear blue waves in the other west coast state of Hawaii. At RevoluSun she was one of the senior project developers in residential sales and got to know the industry as well business development. As an independent employee she focused on networking and building relationships with lead generators. She moved to Chico just a few days ago and even though she grew up in the area it's been almost 20 years since living here and she's enjoying exploring her new town. She's ready to get to know people, so if you have groups, networking clubs, or social event that you are a part of, let her know, she needs some new connections! When not saving the planet by helping people go solar, she enjoys yoga, volleyball, zumba, all things foodie, gardening, cave exploring, lounging at the river, art shows, and, of course, anything ocean related.
