Solar Power World Announces Top U.S. Solar Contractors
PETALUMA, CALIFORNIA, UNITED STATES, July 20, 2021 /EINPresswire.com/ — The U.S. solar industry is on the upswing, thanks to a pro-renewables presidential administration and increased concern over climate change. Simply Solar has had a front-row seat to this action, with business increasing over the last year. Solar Power World has recognized the company’s installation success by awarding them a spot on the 2021 Top Solar Contractors list.
The Top Solar Contractors list is developed each year by Solar Power World to honor the work of solar installers in the United States. Solar firms in the utility, commercial and residential markets are ranked by number of kilowatts installed in the previous year. Companies are grouped and listed by specific service, markets and states.
“Not even COVID-19 closures and slowdowns could prevent the solar industry from installing fantastic numbers last year,” said Kelly Pickerel, Editor-in-Chief of Solar Power World. “The Solar Power World team is so glad to recognize over 400 companies on the 2021 Top Solar Contractors list that not only survived a pandemic but thrived in spite of it.”
The U.S. solar industry grew 43% in 2020, installing more solar panels on homes, businesses and across the country than any other year on record. The residential market saw an 11% increase, which is remarkable considering the difficulties of maneuvering home solar projects through pandemic precautions.
The federal government passed a two-year extension on the solar investment tax credit (ITC) at the end of 2020, which will further accelerate solar adoption across all market segments. After installing 19.2 GW in 2020, research firm Wood Mackenzie expects the U.S. solar market to quadruple by 2030.
“At Simply Solar we strive to be educators and work daily to give California customers the best experience possible when adopting solar energy. We are thrilled to have sustained a growing business over 2020-2021 and look forward to guiding more customers towards a renewable future.” Sean Green, CTO Simply Solar
