Solar Alliance to Build Three Commercial Solar Projects at Kentucky and Tennessee Farms
VANCOUVER, British Columbia and KNOXVILLE, Tenn., June 09, 2020 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Solar Alliance Energy Inc. (‘Solar Alliance’ or the ‘Company’) (TSX-V: SOLR, OTC: SAENF) is pleased to announce it has signed agreements to build commercial solar systems at three farms in Kentucky and Tennessee. All three projects include U.S. Department of Agriculture (“USDA”) grant applications that have been submitted, which provide significant support for renewable energy projects for agricultural producers. The USDA program includes grants for up to 25% of total eligible project costs and loans for up to 75% of total eligible solar project costs.
Two of the projects in Kentucky are being built through Solar Alliance’s partnership with Boyd CAT (formerly Whayne Supply), a Caterpillar dealership. The third project, in Tennessee, is for a separate farming customer. These three projects total approximately 108 kW of solar and will be installed in the next two months.“The agricultural sector is a growing part of the Solar Alliance business model and we are excited to be working with Boyd Caterpillar on the Kentucky projects,” said CEO Myke Clark. “Our team continues to sell and install solar systems during these challenging times and we are committed to providing renewable energy solutions to our customers. The combination of low cost, renewable solar power and a USDA grant provides an excellent solution for agricultural businesses to lower their operating costs and reinvest the savings into their business.”Solar Alliance continues to work with Boyd CAT on signing additional solar systems for agricultural businesses located in Southern Indiana and Kentucky. According to the Kentucky Poultry Federation, there are more than 850 large-scale poultry farms in Kentucky, and together, Solar Alliance and Boyd CAT are targeting them for solar deployment.
