Project is part of utility’s Business Solar Program

Vancouver, Canada, & Knoxville, Tennessee, September 11th, 2019 – Solar Alliance Energy Inc. (‘Solar Alliance’ or the ‘Company’) (TSX-V: SOLR, OTC: SAENF) is pleased to announce it has been awarded a contract through Kentucky Utilities Company’s (“KU”) Business Solar Program to build a 200 kilowatt (“kW”) solar system at Maker’s Mark Distillery in Loretto, Kentucky. The solar facility will provide renewable energy for the bourbon producer. Initial work on the project has begun and is expected to be completed by the end of 2019.
“Solar Alliance is proud to be installing solar for Kentucky Utilities,” said Solar Alliance CEO Myke Clark. “Working closely with Whayne Supply, we were able to put forward a strong proposal to KU that will help them support Maker’s Mark’s renewable energy goals. The project is also the result of an increased focus for Solar Alliance in Kentucky, where the solar market is expanding rapidly and we are well positioned to build on our success to date.”
This is the second project Solar Alliance has worked on under the Business Solar Program. The first was a rooftop solar array built in 2018 for KU’s sister company, Louisville Gas and Electric Company, at the Archdiocese of Louisville’s pastoral center. Solar Alliance worked with Whayne Supply to complete both projects, demonstrating the benefits of a successful partnership with Whayne Supply, a Caterpillar Dealer serving Kentucky, West Virginia, South Eastern Ohio and Southern Indiana.
