POWERHOME is now the No. 6 residential rooftop solar provider in the U.S. – up six spots from just a year ago, which we consider to be well on our way to being one of the largest solar companies in the country. Here at POWERHOME, we consider this to be a major accomplishment, and we are proud to be recognized for our dedication to our customers and the top-tier service we provide. As leading solar experts in the field, as well as GAF-certified roofing experts, POWERHOME takes pride in serving all of our customers’ solar and roofing needs.
POWERHOME’s rise in the annual rankings, validated and produced by Solar Power World magazine, comes on the heels of our fast-growing company installing over 19 megawatts of solar panels in 2018.
If you’re considering adding solar to your home, search “solar installers near me,” and look for the closest POWERHOME office so that we can help meet your needs.
Increased power installation
If those growth numbers aren’t enough, POWERHOME has installed a total of 64,561 kW since the inception of the company, with 19,441 of those last year alone. We just keep growing to be one of the largest solar companies, bringing solar energy to more and more families across the nation.
Our goal is to continue building a movement, not only for our customers, but for the entire community, creating a better tomorrow for everyone. Ultimately we hope to be one of the biggest solar companies in the country.
POWERHOME added three states to our service territory in 2019 – Indiana, Illinois, and Missouri – bringing that total to nine total markets and positioning the company for even further growth on the list next year. If you’re in one of those nine states and wondering “where can I find solar installers near me?” there’s bound to be a POWERHOME SOLAR office in your vicinity.
Add that to the fact that we have an A+ rating with the Better Business Bureau in all markets we serve, and POWERHOME is truly poised to be one of the largest solar companies in operation in the not-so-distant future.
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. POWERHOME’s rise in the rankings showcases the increasing appetite that consumers have for renewable energy. In 2018 alone, POWERHOME reached $100 million in annual sales, marking the first time the company has eclipsed that threshold.
“We’ve seen tremendous growth in the residential market in the nine states we serve,” said POWERHOME CEO Jayson Waller. “Our customers are seeing the financial, environmental and convenience benefits of adding solar and no longer simply relying on an antiquated grid.”
The U.S. solar market is expected to see 17% growth in 2019, with nearly 13 gigawatts of new solar power added to the grid this year. This increase in installations is attributed to strong residential solar interest and a rush to get projects in before the 26% federal investment tax credit steps down to 26% in 2020.
As of October 2019, POWERHOME has installed more than 200,000 solar panels across all of our markets. We’ve enabled customers to own their power, and add backup batter solutions that allow homeowners to keep powering their homes even in the event of power outages. We are truly transforming the way customers power their homes.
Simply search “solar installers near me,” and find the nearest POWERHOME SOLAR location to join us on this journey, as we become one of the biggest solar companies empowering homeowners across the country.
