Vancouver, Canada, and Knoxville, Tennessee, September 10th, 2018 – Solar Alliance Energy Inc. (‘Solar Alliance’ or the ‘Company’) (TSX-V: SOLR) is pleased to announce it has completed the installation of a 22.6 kW solar system at the independently owned AAMCO automotive service center in Lebanon, Tennessee. The project, which was completed in two weeks, was the recipient of a USDA Rural Energy for America Program (REAP) Grant which provides funding for up to 25% of total eligible product cost. The project is one of several completed under the Company’s new Commercial Solar Channel Partner program. The program increases Solar Alliance’s reach through a network of partners that utilize the Company’s design, permitting and installation expertise.
The AAMCO project in Lebanon was completed in partnership with Channel Partner Distributive Solar, a relationship that has grown in the last year and expands the sales reach of the Solar Alliance team of installation professionals. The Commercial Channel Partner Program is another strategy employed by Solar Alliance to demonstrate to residents and businesses that solar can add value to buildings by turning their rooftops into revenue generators.
Brad and Lisa Isbell have owned this AAMCO location for more than ten years and were pleased with the results. “Solar is the right thing to do and you can save money by doing it,” said Brad Isbell. “Working with Solar Alliance was very easy and quick. The installers were courteous, respectful, and knowledgeable. They checked in with us every day and let us know the progress. They got the job done fast and I am glad Distributive Solar brought us to Solar Alliance.”
“I am very glad to see this on the roof of AAMCO,” said Lebanon Mayor Bernie Ash. “Solar can save the city and saving the city money is very important – using different resources for energy is great for that.”
“This project is representative of the care and professionalism the Solar Alliance team brings to each customer,” said Solar Alliance Vice President Harvey Abouelata. “We understand the markets we operate in and that helps us bring the best possible solution to our clients. As we grow our team and expand into other markets in the U.S., our goal is to continue to provide first class products and service so our customers can realize the economic and environmental benefits of solar energy. Our Commercial Channel Partner Program allows us to rapidly grow our project pipeline without the overhead associated with employing large sales teams.”
