TORONTO and KNOXVILLE — Solar Alliance Energy Inc. announces that it has signed a Joint Development Agreement, dated August 9, 2021, with Abundant Solar Power to jointly pursue large-scale utility solar projects in the U.S. Southeast.

Solar Alliance’s regional design, engineering, and construction experience combined with Abundant’s financial experience and large project development experience create a partnership that is well positioned to provide cost-competitive, turnkey solar solutions to utilities. The projects will range in size from 1 megawatt to 10 MW and larger and will typically involve competitive bids to local and regional utilities.

“There are significant utility-scale solar opportunities in the U.S. Southeast and this partnership will provide a strong, proven platform to put forward competitive bids,” said Solar Alliance CEO Myke Clark. “Solar Alliance and Abundant are currently assessing several utility-scale opportunities and this partnership will allow us to provide cost-competitive, turnkey solar systems. We’re thrilled to partner with Abundant and work with them to deliver long-term, recurring revenue streams by targeting power purchase agreements with large utility companies. This platform clearly elevates us into a very competitive position in one of the fastest growing solar markets in the United States today,” concluded Clark.

Under the Agreement, Abundant and Solar Alliance will jointly pursue solar opportunities where Solar Alliance is responsible for utility communication and relationship management, design and engineering, materials procurement, and construction. Abundant will be responsible for identifying and securing sources of tax equity and non-recourse project debt, project design oversight based on their proven track record of building large solar projects and bid pricing intelligence.
