Who We Are

TJA Clean Energy was established by real estate developer, Alan Alves to make alternative energy solutions a reality for commercial and residential partners in the Northeast. We currently serve MA, NH, CT, and have recently expanded to the NY area.

The need for sustainable energy has led to continued growth of green building, and an increase in solar power markets – proving to be both cost-effective and profitable for those invested. We uncover opportunities for revenue streams via solar fields in underused parcels, and work with commercial brands, solar companies, investors, and municipalities to provide energy solutions that support green initiatives.

TJA Clean Energy’s methodology is unique in that our principals and small team of elite experts are your direct contacts on a project – as opposed to large, multi-faceted corporations that shuffle you though departments and red-tape. This ideology is a welcomed change for many who have struggled to achieve ROI from other companies in a timely fashion. TJA’s approach is more effective when facilitating projects phases from engineering through to connectivity and completion, and when expediting payment from land leasing and real estate acquisitions.
