Solar Alliance Energy has signed a Joint Development Agreement with Boyd Company, a regional Caterpillar dealer, and will be opening an office in Louisville, Kentucky. Boyd CAT is the authorized dealer of CAT solar equipment for businesses and contractors across Kentucky, Southern Indiana, West Virginia and Southeastern Ohio.
Under the agreement, Boyd CAT and Solar Alliance will jointly pursue solar opportunities where Boyd CAT provides sales support and solar equipment, and Solar Alliance provides solar design, engineering and installation services.
Together, the two companies will aggressively pursue larger utility-scale solar projects while also continuing to target commercial solar customers in the agricultural, manufacturing and small business sectors. To date, Boyd CAT and Solar Alliance have partnered on several projects including the recently completed 1-MW solar project for Louisville Gas and Electric Company and Kentucky Utilities Company.
“This joint development agreement is a perfect fit as we accelerate our growth in Kentucky and surrounding states, working closely with Boyd CAT to bring the benefits of solar energy to a greater number of customers,” said CEO Myke Clark. “The Cat solar panel we use is a quality product with a warranty backed by Cat, providing value combined with a brand that customers can trust. That exceptional product combined with Solar Alliance’s technical and installation expertise results in a turnkey solar solution that customers know they can trust. The value in this partnership is immense.”
Opening an office in Louisville will provide an ideal location to collaborate closely with Boyd CAT and will also increase efficiency as the two companies continue to grow quickly in Kentucky. The benefits of this joint development agreement will also be realized beyond Kentucky as the two companies will also be pursuing opportunities together throughout the Southeast.
“Solar Alliance is committed to becoming the top commercial and industrial solar provider in the U.S. and partnering with top tier businesses like Boyd CAT will allow us to bring solar to a greater number of consumers. Combined with our build-own-operate strategy that has seen Solar Alliance acquire two construction-ready projects in New York, it is clear the Solar Alliance team continues to execute on our strategic growth plan and that will continue to create value for customers and shareholders,” concluded Clark.
