Toronto, Canada and Knoxville, Tennessee, June 21st, 2023 – Solar Alliance Energy Inc. (‘Solar Alliance’ or the ‘Company’) (TSX-V: SOLR), a leading solar energy solutions provider focused on the commercial and utility solar sectors, is pleased to announce it has sold a 67% interest in the Company’s two operating solar projects in the state of New York for consideration of USD $973,360.72. Solar Alliance will maintain a 33% interest in the two projects (the “Projects”), enabling the Company to continue to benefit from the economics of the Projects.

VC1, a 298-kilowatt (“kW”) project located in the Village of Cazenovia, and US1, a 389-kW project located in the Village of Union Springs, both received permission to operate in December 2022 and are now generating clean, renewable electricity under long-term power purchase agreements with the local communities. The Projects were constructed by Solar Alliance during 2022 as a proof-of-concept for the Company’s asset ownership strategy.

“Solar Alliance created significant value by taking these projects from late-stage development, through construction and financing, and into operation,” said CEO Myke Clark. “The decision to monetize a portion of that value reflects our prudent approach to capital allocation and focus on maximizing returns on our capital deployed, while enabling us to maintain a meaningful ownership interest in these projects moving forward.”

“These community solar projects provided the perfect opportunity for our team to illustrate proof-of-concept in the construction management, tax equity financing and legal structuring of solar asset ownership. Armed with this invaluable experience, the next phase of our asset ownership strategy involves seizing ownership opportunities in the thriving commercial solar sector, where our design, engineering and installation division is already seeing strong deal flow. Our strategic divestment of interests in our first two owned projects represents a pivotal moment in our asset ownership strategy, propelling Solar Alliance towards additional value generating opportunities,” Mr. Clark concluded.

The sale of the interest in the Projects was completed through the settlement of a promissory note due to the acquirer that had a principal and interest balance of USD $973,360.72, eliminating this obligation from Solar Alliance’s balance sheet.
