A solar energy manager

This company revolves around the Sun. Pioneering business selling and installing solar panel systems (photovoltaic) for end-users in Minas Gerais, Brazil,. Founded by Fernando and Marcos, brothers and electrical engineers, with the vision of transforming Brazil’s solar potential into high-performance clean energy.

The company has more than 700 projects already installed in Brazil, and a clear competitive advantage with its retail sales model, broadening access to solar energy to residences and small and medium-sized businesses (‘open-door engineering’).

Rise partnered with Alba in 2017. Together we created a plan to transform the company into a manager of clean energy, expanding its operating models – building new solar farms and increasing ‘roof top’ unit sales geographically through subsidiaries and well-trained and motivated sales teams.

The impact, in addition to contributing to the growth of renewable energy and the reduction of CO2 emissions, is the donation of kits and installations to needy hospitals and schools, with plans to broaden access to energy to low income areas and areas where the government is not present.
