POWERHOME SOLAR loves to showcase that we are Building A Movement (BAM!) of solar energy across America. Our movement is now in 10 states, up from six at the start of 2019, which speaks to the tremendous growth of our company. Not surprising then, but nevertheless very exciting for us, is seeing our latest rise in Solar Power World’s annual Top Solar Contractors ranking. POWERHOME SOLAR is now ranked No. 7 in the nation among residential installers, up from No. 8 a year ago.
The rankings also make POWERHOME the No. 1 residential provider in the Midwest and Southeast markets.
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.
The numbers behind POWERHOME SOLAR’s growth
According to the Solar Energy Industries Association, the U.S. installed 3.6 gigawatts (GW) of solar PV capacity in Q1 2020 to reach 81.4 GW of total installed capacity. That is enough energy to power 15.7 million homes. But COVID-19 impacts showed their force in Q2, and Wood Mackenzie is forecasting residential and non-residential markets will see 25% and 38% decreases in year-over-year installation volumes this year. POWERHOME SOLAR installed nearly 38 megawatts of solar panels in 2019, nearly double the amount the company installed in 2018, and is bucking the 2020 industry trend by continuing on a strong upward trajectory. It also currently has more than 1,100 employees, nearly double the total it started with in 2019.
“We’ve seen incredible growth in recent years and even in the first half of 2020, despite the COVID crisis,” POWERHOME SOLAR CEO Jayson Waller said. “More than ever, homeowners are thinking about fixed costs and recognize the financial benefits and convenience of solar energy. POWERHOME SOLAR continues to grow year-over-year as the result of changing consumer mindsets.”
POWERHOME SOLAR gives customers the chance to own a home energy package through its partnership with Generac. POWERHOME SOLAR offers Generac’s battery storage to customers looking to protect their in-home energy source. Not only does the battery storage provide access to power during outages, it future-proofs your home for any changes that utility companies can implement.
POWERHOME SOLAR loves seeing all this growth, and it’s intent on growing even more. The company will continue moving into new markets as we share the value of clean energy with everyone who wants to go green. Where will POWERHOME SOLAR be in another 12 months? In the midst of breaking sales records in recent months, we’re excited to see where we do land.
