POWERHOME doesn’t grow at the rate it has in the last three years without vision and innovation, and it is always incredibly exciting to be honored for those things. The most recent case in point: POWERHOME has been named to Fast Company’s prestigious annual list of the world’s Most Innovative Companies for 2020!
This year’s MIC list features 434 businesses from 39 countries, with POWERHOME being ranked No. 6 in the Energy category. Fast Company’s list, chosen by its writers and editors, honors businesses making the most profound impact on both industry and culture, showcasing a variety of ways to succeed in today’s fast-changing world.
“Through the use of solar energy, POWERHOME has helped thousands of customers become more sustainable and save money,” said POWERHOME CEO Jayson Waller. “In today’s business environment, creativity is critical to attract consumer attention. Inclusion on this prestigious Fast Company list is a testament to the innovative ideals POWERHOME was founded on and strives to achieve every day.”
How POWERHOME made Fast Company’s prestigious list
POWERHOME earned its way onto this list for its innovation in increasing awareness of solar energy on a national scale. After forming partnerships with four professional sports franchises in 2018 (Carolina Panthers, Cleveland Browns, Detroit Lions and Pittsburgh Steelers), the company added three others in the Indianapolis Colts, Cleveland Indians and NC State Athletics in 2019. We’ve already installed solar at the facilities or stadiums of five of those teams. Our partnerships help the franchises reduce dependence on grid energy and decrease their carbon footprints, which are substantial based on the amount of energy each facility uses throughout the year for practices, games, concerts and numerous other events.
POWERHOME has further leveraged these partnerships by creating television and/or web-based commercials that showcase our affiliations with each franchise, increasing our visibility and awareness among each team’s fans and creating a ripple effect for potential customers.
The World’s Most Innovative Companies is Fast Company’s signature franchise and one of its most highly anticipated editorial efforts of the year. It provides both a snapshot and a road map for the future of innovation across the most dynamic sectors of the economy.
“At a time of increasing global volatility, this year’s list showcases the resilience and optimism of businesses across the world. These companies are applying creativity to solve challenges within their industries and far beyond,” said Fast Company senior editor Amy Farley.
POWERHOME has earned high honors from other prestigious organizations in recent months. That list includes being ranked No. 100 on the 2019 Inc. 500 fastest-growing private companies in America, the second time in three years that the company has made that list. POWERHOME is also ranked No. 6 nationally among residential rooftop solar installers according to Solar Power World.
