Latest Certification Follows Tesla Accredited Installer Status
Vancouver, Canada, & Knoxville, Tennessee, September 16th, 2019 – Solar Alliance Energy Inc. (‘Solar Alliance’ or the ‘Company’) (TSX-V: SOLR, OTC: SAENF) is pleased to announce it is now a pre-approved Certified Installer of electric vehicle (“EV”) chargers for Jaguar/Land Rover, BMW and General Motors. As a pre-approved Certified Installer through the Qmerit platform, Solar Alliance has direct access to electric vehicle customers of all four automakers. Jaguar/Land Rover, BMW and General Motors customers will be directed, through the automakers’ sales personnel and websites, to a customer-facing website that connects EV drivers. Solar Alliance is currently the only pre-approved Qmerit Certified Installer for these four brands in Tennessee. This certification is in addition to the Company’s approval as a Tesla Accredited Installer for electric vehicle chargers and significantly expands Solar Alliance’s ability to take advantage of this growing market.
“As a Certified Installer of electric vehicle chargers for Jaguar/Land Rover, BMW and General Motors we have an incredible opportunity to expand our sales and installation reach,” said CEO Myke Clark. “Solar Alliance can now connect directly with customers of these automakers and provide a seamless, professional EV charger installation. In combination with our Tesla Accredited Installer status we are now well positioned in this growing market. We also see strong synergies between electric vehicle customers and residential solar customers. Our strategy is to provide a great EV charger installation experience to these customers and also show them the benefits of making the switch to solar energy to power their electric vehicles and potentially their homes,” concluded Clark.
According to the latest International Energy Agency forecast, the number of sales of electric vehicles will increase from a record 1.1 million worldwide in 2017, to 11 million in 2025 and then surging to 30 million in 2030 as they become cheaper to make than internal combustion engine cars. This massive shift to electric vehicles will require a substantial shift in terms of electrical demand and drive the further adoption of residential and commercial solar.
