“Solar Alliance continued to successfully execute on our strategy as our team delivered the highest revenue quarter in our company’s history,” said CEO Myke Clark. “Our transition to larger commercial and utility projects has resulted in strong growth and a substantial backlog of projects under contract.”
“In addition to this strong revenue growth, we have almost completed construction on our two company-owned solar projects in New York. These strong results are further supported by the recently passed Inflation Reduction Act in the United States which includes significant climate initiatives, and which is expected to drive long-term growth in the solar industry and contains several provisions that projects to directly benefit Solar Alliance and our customers,” said Clark.
