Vancouver, Canada, and Knoxville, Tennessee, March 4th, 2019 – Solar Alliance Energy Inc. (‘Solar Alliance’ or the ‘Company’) (TSX-V: SOLR) is pleased to announce that it has signed three new Channel Partner Agreements in Tennessee for the marketing and sale of Solar Alliance’s SunBox product. Solar Alliance is pleased to welcome Gervais Electric, based in Nasvhille, Energy Home Basics, based in Loudon County and TerraShares, based in Morristown. The three new channel partners join Mike Stevens Homes on our growing team of partners. There are now a total of four channel partners that have signed on as SunBox Channel Partners and sales are beginning to flow as customers learn about the benefits of the SunBox product.
“We are proud to partner with Gervais Electric, TerraShares and Energy Home Basics for the marketing of our SunBox residential solar product,” said CEO Myke Clark. “These partners allow us to access a greater number of customers as well as multiple distribution points which, over time and with increased sales volume, will drive down the logistical costs of the SunBox program. We are seeing an incredible level of interest in the SunBox product from consumers and potential channel partners. Providing a simple, efficient solar system to builders, developers and channel partners that is permit-ready is clearly something the market has been seeking and we are excited to be at the forefront of this market opportunity. That opportunity is translating into sales and will provde a strong complement to our commercial solar project pipeline,” concluded Clark.
“Gervais Electric is excited to become a SunBox partner and see this as a great opportunity. We are always looking for products and services that offer value to our clients,” said Ben Coleman, VP of Sales. “As a Tesla Electric Vehicle Charger installer we see the SunBox as a complementary upgrade to the package. Having an electric vehicle is a clear statement in protecting the environment knowing the electricity comes from a renewable resource rather than mixed portfolio of fossil fuel.”
“I started in solar energy thirty years ago and have seen it grow from an expensive trinket to the cheapest, fastest growing energy source in the world,” said TerraShares founder John Atkins. “I believe the amazing US solar boom will happen in Tennessee only when home owners and small businesses take the lead. The truly economical SunBox “bundle” is just what is needed to empower Tennesseans to take their energy future — and their utility bills! — in their own hands. An on-site solar system is already one of the best financial investments available to the average home and small business owner. SunBox can only make it better.”
“I’m excited to join the Solar Alliance Channel Partner program and begin marketing the SunBox residential Solar PV Solution,” said Bruce Glanville. “The SunBox product has the potential to revolutionize residential solar by making the Solar PV Solution simple to integrate and available at an affordable price. The strength of this program is its simplicity. SunBox offers ease for the contractor and a lower operating cost for the homeowner. It just makes sense.”
Solar Alliance is selectively partnering with architects, developers and homebuilders who will integrate this permit-ready solar offering into their existing home designs for new construction. The primary target customers are developers building large, multi-home communities. SunBox is a complete Solar PV Solution that includes battery storage to maximize energy savings and provide an added layer of security for high performance homes. SunBox comes in two standard residential systems sizes with options such as a generator for whole home backup and a home Electric Vehicle Charger.
