Future of KY. Solar Panels Bright

The sun shines bright on our Kentucky homes, and Alternative Energies Kentucky LLC thinks that could become a great business opportunity.

The company has rented office and manufacturing space in the old ATR Wire & Cable plant on Danville's bypass, trained 10 employees and set up a side business in security systems to cushion its startup.
