Solar Power World releases its top 100 solar contractors list

Thursday, Dec 20, 2012

Solar Power World, the solar industry’s leading media resource with its print publication, web site and social media outlets, today released the industry’s most definitive ranking of solar installers. The Top 100 Solar Contractors list offers the industry a look at how they stack up against their peers across all solar markets —residential, commercial and utility systems.

“We hope that these companies will serve as an inspiration not only to their peers and solar industry colleagues, but to the general public as well. We believe this inaugural Top 100 will become a benchmark for the industry and further help solidify solar as a leading power source.”

The ranking includes companies small and large, privately owned and publicly traded. Coming in No. 11, San Luis Obispo, Calif.-based REC Solar (which boast 675 employees) has installed more than 30.5 megawatts (MW) in six states in 2011. Meanwhile, New York-based altPOWER (with six employees) installed 500,000 kW in 2011 and comes in at No. 93.

“We would like to congratulate the 100 companies who made our list through their hard work and dedication to the solar industry,” says Frank Andorka, editorial director at Solar Power World. “We hope that these companies will serve as an inspiration not only to their peers and solar industry colleagues, but to the general public as well. We believe this inaugural Top 100 will become a benchmark for the industry and further help solidify solar as a leading power source.”
