In a year full of accomplishments and honors bestowed upon POWERHOME Solar for its work in providing solar energy solutions to its customers, this one is right near the top, if not at the summit.
Inc. magazine today revealed that POWERHOME Solar is ranked No. 100 on its annual Inc. 5000 list, the most prestigious ranking of the nation’s fastest-growing private companies. POWERHOME Solar’s revenue growth of 3,307 percent from 2015-18 has earned the company a spot on the list for a second time. The number makes POWERHOME the nation’s fastest-growing private company among solar energy providers. POWERHOME was ranked No. 96 on Inc.’s 2017 list.
“We’ve seen tremendous growth throughout the last year by creating greater awareness about renewable energy, and we’re not even close to being finished,” said Jayson Waller, CEO of POWERHOME Solar. “This honor is validation of the tireless work our team puts forward every day and illustrates our commitment to building a movement toward a more sustainable future in the United States.”
POWERHOME started in 2015 with 15 employees and had nearly 600 employees at the close of 2018. Among top 100 companies, POWERHOME was No. 10 in 2018 revenue at $102.9 million, and had the third-largest number of employees at 585. POWERHOME is also among the top 5 fastest growing of all privately-owned companies based in either North Carolina or Michigan, where POWERHOME has headquarters offices.

POWERHOME’s ever-growing list of awards and accolades
This most recent success follows an avalanche of other honors to come POWERHOME’s way in the past year.
- In July, POWERHOME was named the No. 6 residential rooftop solar installer in the nation by Solar Power World. The company also won 9 Globee Awards (six gold, 2 silver, one bronze), with two of the top honors including distinction as Company of the Year in the Energy & Utilities and U.S. categories. Other gold winners were CFO Juan Ramirez, who was recognized as the Finance Executive of the Year, and CEO Jayson Waller took home Professional of the Year in both the Energy & Utilities and U.S. categories, and also was named Entrepreneur of the Year.
- In June, Waller was named an Ernst & Young Entrepreneur of the Year 2019 Southeast Award winner, and he’ll have a shot at being named a national winner in November. POWERHOME was also honored as one of Michigan’s Economic Bright Spots by Corp! Magazine. Finally, the company accepted two bronze Stevie Awards in New York, one for Fastest Growing Company of the Year and one for Energy Industry Innovation of the Year.
- In April, Waller was named one of five Champions of the New Economy by DBusiness Magazine.
- Last November, the Michigan Energy Innovation Business Council named POWERHOME Solar as its Emerging Business of the Year.
We can’t earn any of these honors without the growing interest in solar energy. POWERHOME Solar is proud to be at the forefront of providing energy choice to residential and business customers seeking to own their power instead of endlessly paying the power company for energy generated primarily by fossil-fueled sources. POWERHOME operates in eight states, and we’re far from done growing. We have every intention of being on this Inc. list next year!
