The Eagle Solar & Light company was founded in early 2016 on a desire to provide the same access to commercial and residential solar energy that can be found in other parts of the country (where the cost of energy drives the need for alternative resources). Even though energy costs in Alabama are among the lowest in the nation, we realized that individuals and businesses should have the access to clean, abundant solar energy for reasons beyond simple energy savings.
Eagle Solar & Light founder, Sam Yates, created a company that would fill the much-needed void in the Central Alabama area of solar energy contractors by setting up the Eagle Solar & Light team to provide a true General Contracting experience. Our true trade knowledge comes from our participation and licensure in the Alabama Home Builder’s Association, as well as our being a licensed General Contractor in Alabama and North Carolina specifically for Solar installations and LED installations.
ESL team members have delivered nationally-recognized expertise to the solar energy industry to our home in Birmingham, Alabama. Our team holds certifications and achievements from the North American Board of Certified Electrical Practitioners (NABCEP), as well as many hours of training and education on safety, industry-specific products, lighting design and more.
Beyond the system components or design of a system, we are a committed community partner. Each member of the Eagle Solar & Light team consistently seeks out opportunities to speak and interface with the public to further the truth about solar energy in our marketplace. Whether it is a solar demonstration for a fourth-grade science class, or a system installation for a Habitat for Humanity home, the team at Eagle Solar & Light is ready and eager to make our community better for all
