Knoxville, Tennessee & Vancouver, Canada, May 29th, 2018 – Solar Alliance Energy Inc. (‘Solar Alliance’ or the ‘Company’) (TSX-V: SOLR) is pleased to announce the completion of a 101.2 kW solar panel array on the rooftop of the new barn at Wampler’s Farm Sausage in Lenoir City, Tennessee. This marks the fourth solar system owned by Wampler’s, totaling more than 680 kW of PV solar panels. Harvey Abouelata, Vice President of Commercial Operations at Solar Alliance, has been intricately involved with Wampler’s on the development and installation of each array, starting with the first 30 kW roof mount in 2009.
“Harvey and his team provide a turnkey project, handling everything from design, permitting, installation and funding – allowing us to concentrate on our core business,” said Ted Wampler, Jr., President and CEO of Wampler’s Farm Sausage.
“Installing a rooftop solar array takes advantage of an underutilized asset and builds equity in the business. The savings generated allow our customers to invest back into their business,” said Abouelata. “The result is simple: our clients realize the impact on their bottom line while also securing a competitive position as technology develops and distributive power generation becomes the norm. Further, the solar systems we have installed for Wampler’s Farm Sausage represent the type of long-term relationships we strive to create and maintain,” concluded Abouelata.
Wampler’s Farm Sausage produces the highest quality sausage and pork products in a modern facility that utilizes clean hydrogen and solar energy.
“The twenty-six-month payback of the original 30 kW system inspired us to expand our solar commitment with an on-site, 500 kW array in 2011,” said Wampler, Jr. “Our pursuit of solar energy continued with a partnership with Zoo Knoxville to install a 50 kW PV solar panel array on the roof of the elephant habitat. Fast forward to 2018, and we’ve added the newest 101 kW system at our facility. Investing in clean energy changed the culture of our company. We have also dramatically reduced our water use, implemented strict internal recycling programs, and use boxes from recycled and recyclable materials. Millions of people around the country enjoy our products every day, and we owe it to them, their children and beyond to make our products in the most sustainable way possible,” concluded Wampler.
