Sun Tribe Solar, LLC
Front company for Energix and Alony Hetz

In the news, "Are Israeli Settlers Secretly Installing Solar Panels at Virginia Public Schools?"


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.
