Sun Tribe Solar, LLC is composed of three front companies organized
by the law firm Williams Mullen in
the state of Virginia for the ultimate beneficial owners, the Israeli solar energy company Energix, which is owned by
real estate giant
Alony Hetz. Both are heavily involved in businesses operating in
territories illegally occupied by Israel.
Sun Tribe's public image is that of a hip, youth-oriented startup trying
to create clean energy jobs across the state, including through Twitter
postings featuring bicycle riding employees and their pets. It relies on
this image to win 20-30 and 35 year leases for solar arrays at colleges,
universities and public schools.
Before Sun Tribe was launched as the new U.S. public image of Energix
and Alony Hetz, Virginia Israel Advisory Board board member Aviva Frye
also worked as an Energix executive, clearing regulatory and permit
hurdles for important projects such as the Mineral Gap Data Center.
As Mineral Gap moved into design and project management, it suddenly became a Sun
Tribe Solar, LLC project, as revealed in project proposals released
under the Virginia Freedom of Information Act.
