Solar Energy is clean, breathtakingly abundant, and is a reasonable recourse to meet much of the world's energy needs. Harnessing the same sunlight that has kept the earth warm for eons, we can finally achieve a more sustainable balance with nature as humanity advances and find new, cleaner, and more efficient means of meeting its energy needs. Offset or eliminate utility bills in your home or building by generating reliable and clean non polluting solar power.

Construction and Contracting

We can be engaged as a full-blown general contractor working for you as EPC (engineering, procurement, construction), or as sub-contractor with limited scope, or project manager.

We have NABCEP licensed installers in our team to ensure industry specific know-how and continuing education. We have experience in installing fixed-tilt, single-axis, and dual-axis trackers on roof and ground-mount of major manufacturers and suppliers. Some of our work and/or our members’ work contributed to award-winning and international recognition for quality work and services.

Brown Construction began as a site excavation business, over 30 years ago under the ownership of Bill Brown, Sr. Several years later, Bill’s oldest son, Barry, took the reins and expanded Brown Construction into a full service General Contractor, including being state licensed in both Alabama and Tennessee. Barry`s construction experience includes complete site work, utilities, and building construction.

In 2011, Barry qualified the company to install PV Solar Panels for Vis Solis to include turn-key solar projects. Barry had a 25-year telecommunication career prior to becoming a general contractor. His experience with voice, video and data, including fiber-optics, made him a natural for PV Solar work. Transporting telecommunications is quite similar to transporting DC voltage.

Barry manages the day-to-day-business of TVAE, as well as being directly responsible for construction of the PV systems.
