Why We're Industry Leaders

We Don’t Just Build Solar

We understand that as renewable energy has become mainstream, you’ll see numerous companies, even with no industry experience, telling you they build solar.  We don’t just build solar.  We build on our years of expertise to design solar solutions that meet your needs.  We build on time and on budget while building professional relationships that last.

We Design Solar Solutions

We start by drawing on years of experience and projects of various types to ask you the right questions.  These questions help us better understand your current situation.  We take a hard look at your business case for conserving energy, needing upgrades, and integrating solar in a way that makes real dollars and sense.

We Work Well With Your Utility

Solar Alliance is proud to be a partner with leading local utilities.  They know our work and respect our portfolio of projects.  Some we’ve even built for the utilities as community solar.  The smooth interconnection process of your solar with the local utility requires professional relationships like the ones we’ve built over time.

“Solar is the right thing to do and you can save money by doing it.  Working with Solar Alliance was very easy and quick.  The installers were courteous, respectful, and knowledeable.  They checked in with us every day and let us know the progress.”

Brad Isbell, Owner | AAMCO in Lebanon, TN

“From its inception, Oak Ridge has been a leader with respect to energy technology, and our members are well aware of the advantages and limitations of most energy sources.  We have studied the feasibility of using solar panels for some time now, but could not quite justify the cost until we met with Solar Alliance, who proposed an affordable installation.  Then when the federal government announced incentives that extended to nonprofits, we were already primed to proceed.”

Associate Pastor George Smith | Faith Lutheran Church in Oak Ridge, TN

“ESG and sustainability is something that fits our mold and image here at TENTE so it was never a question of ‘if’ we would implement some type of renewable energy source, but rather ‘when.’ We set a goal for ourselves here in North America that by 2030 over 50% of our energy needs would come from a renewable energy source.  The current project being supplied by Solar Alliance gets us halfway there.”

Pierce Kohls, CFO | TENTE Casters, Inc. in Hebron, KY

“We have come to rely on Solar Alliance for many of our house projects. Solar Alliance installed two 10 kW solar systems on our rooftops, 2 EV chargers and a generator. We have been so thoroughly impressed with their kindness, professionalism, communication and quality of work through all aspects of the projects – from inception to completion. We could not recommend them more strongly!”

“I had already gone through looking at several companies. I was just about to give up. I didn’t know how I was going to do this. With Solar Alliance, the representative answered everything. She was just there to give me the information I wanted, never pushy. It was just a comfortable experience working with her.”

“Kevin helped me diagnose the issue and effect the repair…If I ever have another issue, want to upgrade, or expand, they will get my business.”

Robert K. |

“Installation went very well. They were really nice and gave me a lot of information so it was a painless process.”

Marian | Knoxville, TN

“They are very professional and trustworthy. They provide great customer support. The products they sell are top notch.”

Suzan B. | Knoxville, TN

“Totally professional. Installation was perfect. Everything operates as it should. The people have gone above and beyond. I am very happy with them. Multiple people have stopped and asked me about the panels and I always tell them how pleased I am with the company.”

Betsy | Bell Buckle, TN

Top video: AESSEAL, Inc. is leading the way with one of the largest commercial solar installations in East Tennessee. This is a 526-kilowatt array designed, engineered and installed by Solar Alliance on AESSEAL, Inc.’s North American Headquarters. It utilizes two different forms of racking atop the 50,000 square foot facility.

This installation supports the leading mechanical seal manufacturer’s Net Zero environmental efforts. AESSEAL, Inc. Operations Manager Chris Staackmann said, “As a global manufacturing business, we recognize that a scope of our operations has consequences for the environment around us.”

“We were able to complete this project on time, ahead of schedule,” said Solar Alliance Commercial Project Estimator Alex Mas.

“And believe it will be an example for other businesses to follow,” said Solar Alliance General Manager Jon Hamilton.
