Green Power Energy Recognized as a Top Solar Contractor in New Jersey
Coming off the biggest year ever for U.S. solar installations, local installer Green Power Energy is proud to be named a Top Solar Contractor in the United States by Solar Power World magazine. Green Power Energy achieved a rank of 261 out of top 500 solar companies in the United States.
The Solar Power World Top Solar Contractors list includes Annandale, NJ-based solar firm
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. The list was released on July 25.
“The 2017 Top Solar Contractors list features 500 of the best solar contractors in the United States,” said Kelly Pickerel, managing editor of Solar Power World. “From solar hotbeds on the coasts to the up-and-coming Midwest solar market, every installer adding even the smallest solar array to the grid is making a positive impact on our communities. We’re proud to recognize these companies and their efforts to bring solar power to U.S. homes and businesses.”
The U.S. solar market installed more than 14,700 MW of solar in 2016, nearly doubling the capacity installed in 2015. For the first time ever, solar was ranked as the No. 1 source of new electric generating capacity additions brought online throughout the year. GTM Research and the Solar Energy Industries Association (SEIA) predict the cumulative U.S. solar market to nearly triple in size over the next five years. By 2022, more than 18 GW of solar photovoltaic capacity will be installed annually, Green Power Energy will continue to be a major player in adding solar to the grid.
Green Power Energy employs 35 workers, who installed 2,054 kW of solar in 2016. Since its founding in 2009, the company has installed 7.5 MW of solar. The company, Green Power Energy, is expected to double its installed kW capacity from 2016 into 2017. Green Power Energy is known as “Your Local Solar Company,” and has worked out of the Village Green at Annandale since 2009. The Village Green at Annandale is home to Green Power Energy’s office as well as residential spaces all powered by a 322 kW solar farm. It is unique that Green Power Energy not only promotes the green lifestyle and green technology but actually runs off of solar themselves.
“We are proud to be included on this list for the third year in a row. It is an honor to be in such good company,” said Andrew Contrino, the Vice President of Marketing at Green Power Energy. “The list includes a lot of utility scale developers so when we compare ourselves to those solely in the EPC market, our rank is even higher. As long as we continue to adapt to the latest installation trends, keep our cost per acquisition down, and simply do the right thing, we have a chance to break the top 100 in the coming years.”
