The Solar Power World Top Solar Contractors list includes Annandale based solar firm
[Annandale, NJ, July 31, 2019] With renewable energy expected to be the fastest growing source of U.S. electricity generation for at least the next two years, local solar installer Green Power Energy is happy to be contributing to the country’s energy mix.
Green Power Energy has been recognized by Solar Power World magazine for its installation efforts, achieving a rank of 172 out of 415 solar companies on the magazine’s 2019 Top Solar Contractors list. This is up from the company’s previous rankings of 202 in 2017 and 261 in 2016.
The Top Solar Contractors list is developed by Solar Power World to recognize the work completed by solar contractors across the United States. Produced annually, the Top Solar Contractors list celebrates the achievements of U.S. solar developers, subcontractors and installers within the utility, commercial and residential markets, and ranks contractors by kilowatts installed in the previous year.
“Solar Power World enjoys assembling the Top Solar Contractors list each year, and our 2019 edition features hundreds of companies making big impacts in local energy markets,” said Kelly Pickerel, editor in chief of Solar Power World. “Solar power is becoming competitive with traditional electricity sources in more markets, and cities and states are demanding more renewable energy options. It’s a great time to be a solar installer, and we’re happy to highlight the best installation companies in the country on our list.”
The U.S. solar market is expected to see 14% growth in 2019, with over 12 GW of new solar power added to the grid this year — enough to power 2.28 million average American homes. This increase in installations is attributed to strong residential solar interest and a rush to get projects in before the 30% federal investment tax credit steps down to 26% next year.
The emerging energy storage market will also influence solar installations going forward. In markets that encourage grid service applications like time-of-use (TOU) shifting, self-consumption and backup power, battery systems paired with solar arrays are attractive options for home and business owners looking to save costs. Solar Power World included the first Solar+Storage Installer sublist in the 2019 Top Solar Contractors edition in recognition of solar installers’ early efforts at coupling the two technologies for customers. This past year, Green Power Energy has been selling Powerwall by Tesla. Powerwall is Green Power Energy’s preferred battery option.
Green Power Energy employs 60 workers who installed 3.982 MW of solar power in 2018. Since its founding 10 years ago in 2009 the company has installed 15 MW of solar. The company has been around since 2009 and is rated the “#1 rated solar company in New Jersey” by Energysage.com and “The Fastest Growing Solar Installer of 2019” by Panasonic Solar.
“We are proud to be included on the Solar Power World list again for 2018. We expect to achieve an even higher number in 2019, having already surpassed 2018’s numbers by July of 2019. We have great employees, customers, and vendors. Thanks to everyone for the support.” – Andrew Contrino, Vice President.
