I RECENTLY HAVE HAD THE PLEASURE OF WORKING WITH ARIES ENERGY ON THE DESIGN AND INSTALLATION OF A 56KW SOLAR INSTALLATION AT THE ALSTOM, CHATTANOOGA BUSINESS UNIT. ARIES ENERGY WAS CHOSEN AMONG SIX COMPANIES TO ASSIST WITH MAKING OUR SOLAR PROJECT A REALITY. IN PARTICULAR, HARVEY ABOUELATA, PATRICK WEST AND MARY SHAFFER GILL WORKED TIRELESSLY TO IDENTIFY ALL POSSIBILITIES FOR GRANTS FOR OUR PROJECT, AND WORKED IN AN EXTREMELY TIGHT TIME FRAME (DUE TO AVAILABILITY OF CERTAIN GRANTS) TO DESIGN AN AMAZING SOLAR STRUCTURE AND MANAGE ALL SUBCONTRACTORS TO ENSURE THE PROJECT WAS COMPLETED ON TIME AND AT THE HIGHEST LEVEL OF QUALITY. WITHOUT ARIES ENERGY AND THE WORK COMPLETED TOWARDS RECEIPT OF GRANTS, ALSTOM CHATTANOOGA’S SOLAR PROJECT SIMPLY WOULD NOT HAVE HAPPENED. I HIGHLY RECOMMEND HARVEY AND HIS TEAM FOR ANY ENERGY RELATED SOLUTION.
