Solar Alliance completes half-megawatt array for Kentucky utility companies

Solar Alliance Energy announced it has completed construction of a 500 kW solar power project in Kentucky for Louisville Gas and Electric Company (LG&E) and Kentucky Utilities Company (KU).

“Solar Alliance is proud to be part of the accelerated decarbonization of the grid in the Southeast and beyond, and we will continue to do our part to support the economic development of clean energy in communities,” said CEO Myke Clark. “Our contracted pipeline of large solar projects continues to grow, and this is the latest example of the type of project we consistently deliver for our customers.”

The project, the fifth part of LG&E and KU’s Solar Share facility, is now operational and part of a subscription-based program available to residential, business and industrial customers looking to support local solar.

“Our portfolio of sustainable tools and programs, such as Solar Share, enables customers to support local and regional renewable energy on their own terms by tailoring their participation levels to their interests,” said LG&E and KU President John Crockett. “Together with our customers, we are ensuring a cleaner, sustainable energy future for Kentucky.”

This project represents a total of 1.5 MW of photovoltaic infrastructure designed and installed by Solar Alliance for the utility companies. The contract for this project includes an option for LG&E and KU to select Solar Alliance to build an additional 500 kW system on the same site.
