“Solar Alliance continued to successfully execute on our strategy as our team delivered a 55% increase in revenue year-over-year,” said CEO Myke Clark. “Solar Alliance continues to see strong demand for commercial solar projects, and we remain focused on larger, higher margin commercial solar projects to support our growth. In addition to executing on larger projects, we are now experiencing strong demand for solar projects for small and medium-sized businesses in rural communities. We reduced expenses and overhead during 2023 and we believe we will experience ongoing bottom-line improvements as those cost reductions have an impact on the full year for 2024. We continue to build a stable, growing company that is well positioned to take advantage of the current global shift to renewable energy,” concluded Clark.

Key business highlights and outlook

Large Project focus momentum. The Company continues to target larger customers for third-party solar system sales and installations, specifically for commercial and industrial customers. Solar Alliance’s strategy is to design, engineer and install commercial solar systems ranging in size up to several megawatts.

Small and medium-sized project growth accelerates. A key component for small businesses wanting to reduce utility costs are Rural Energy for America Program (“REAP”) grants and loans from the United States Department of Agriculture (“USDA”).  Supported by funding from the U.S. Inflation Reduction Act, REAP promotes lower energy costs and resilience while opening new income opportunities for the rural small businesses and agri-businesses the USDA serves. Solar Alliance has dedicated sales resources to supporting the increased demand created by the REAP program and has signed several small and medium-sized projects as a result. These projects are in addition to the sales funnel of larger projects the Company continues to pursue.

Affiliate Program launched. In support of the Company’s organic growth strategy in the Southeast U.S., the Company announced the launch of the Solar Alliance Affiliate Program on September 12, 2023 (the “Affiliate Program”). The Affiliate Program provides independent sales organizations with access to branded marketing materials, design, engineering and installation management services. In return, the affiliates bring commercial solar opportunities to Solar Alliance. The Affiliate Program is initially focused on the Southeast U.S. market and has the potential to be expanded to additional regions in the U.S.

BC Call for Power. In British Columbia, Canada, the utility BC Hydro formally launched the 2024 Call for Power on April 3, 2024. The Company has maintained the development rights, wind resource data and environmental data for a potential 77-megawatt legacy wind project in the province and will be reviewing the RFP and any opportunities to participate.
