CHARLOTTESVILLE, Va.—Altenergy Inc. is rebranding under the name Tiger Solar after Tiger Fuel Company’s acquisition of the solar company this year. The solar contractor’s identity system, website, social media profiles and visual brand signature will evolve to Tiger Solar over the next several months.
“While our name is changing to Tiger Solar, our core competencies will remain the same. We will of course continue to execute all projects with the same brilliance, professionalism, and local leadership in each market we serve,” said Altenergy President Russ Edwards.
Over the past three years, Altenergy solar-powered Tiger’s gourmet-to-go convenience stores and began adding solar to the rooftops of the fuel company’s heating plants. Altenergy and Tiger Fuel have a goal to reduce their carbon footprint by 45% in the next five years.
“The fossil fuel landscape is changing,” said president of Tiger Fuel Gordon Sutton. “As it evolves, I view this acquisition and name change as an opportunity to strengthen our company and provide new jobs. We couldn’t be more excited to operate under the name Tiger Solar,” Sutton emphasized.
