Operations Update

  • On November 9th, 2020 Solar Alliance signed a contract for a 500-kilowatt solar project in Kentucky. The contract also includes an option for the customer to select Solar Alliance to build an additional 500 kW system at the same location.
  • On October 28th, 2020 the Company signed a Design Contract for a 4.6-megawatt solar project at a hyperscale data center in Illinois. The capital cost of the solar project is expected to be approximately $4.8 million. The project is expected to generate margins in the range of the Company’s other large-scale solar projects. The final project size and capital cost will be determined as part of the design process.
  • The Company is shifting additional resources into the project development side of the business, which is focused on larger micro-grid and utility requests for proposals for multi-megawatt solar projects. With a stable flow of revenue being generated through residential and small commercial solar projects, the Company is now targeting residential communities for micro-grid solutions and utilities that are issuing bids for multi-megawatt solar contracts.
  • On July 15, 2020 the Company launched an innovative new solar charging station for robotic lawnmowers. Powershed is a new product that allows you to cut the cord and place a robotic mower anywhere the sun shines. Solar Alliance developed the design in cooperation with a researcher from the University of Tennessee and a provisional patent application has been filed with the U.S. Patent office, which provides intellectual property protection pending a full patent application.
