Quality Customer Service

A typical solar energy system can provide 25 plus years of operational service, therefore the design and proper sizing of a solar system for your home or business should be a cooperative relationship. Eagle Solar & Light experts will create a system for you with accurate analysis, modeling and design considerations. That way we guarantee to maximize annual energy production for your financial investment.

An initial consultation results in a preliminary system concept using a host of solar-specific software tools, but it does not stop there. We study power bills and use site tools to factor in shading or other limitations. Most importantly, we listen to what you want to achieve from your solar potential. We determine the best alternatives to achieve the operational, aesthetic and financial interests that are important to you – all in a pressure-free environment.

It is our passion to expand renewable energy by developing partnerships driven by trust and integrity, while meeting savings and sustainability goals.

Our History

We believe that everyone should have access to clean, abundant solar energy for reasons beyond just energy savings, such as energy independence from a utility, improving air quality and public health and reducing our carbon footprint.  Up until 2015, there were no professional solar companies in Central Alabama that could provide a “turnkey” solar solution. Eagle Solar & Light (ESL) was founded in early 2016 by Sam Yates to fill this this need. Sam, with his engineering degree from Vanderbilt and MBA from University of Virginia and years of manufacturing experience, set the audacious goal to become the leading Commercial and Industrial (C&I) solar provider in the Southeast.

Sam’s vision continues to motivate us, and we have grown significantly and expanded our territory across the Southeast, installing over 4MW of  solar.  We now have our General Contracting licensure in Alabama, North Carolina, Georgia, Mississippi and South Carolina. Our multi-state team holds certifications and achievements from the North American Board of Certified Electrical Practitioners (NABCEP), electrical licenses, and many hours of training and education on safety, industry-specific products, lighting design and more.  Equally important is the diversity of experience of our team members: non-profit leadership, federal and state government service, environmental/ecosystem protection, general contracting and construction to name just a few.
