POWERHOME Solar added another huge accomplishment to its resume on Tuesday, as it has been ranked as the No. 6 residential rooftop solar provider in the U.S. – up six spots from a year ago.
POWERHOME’s rise in the annual rankings, validated and produced by Solar Power World magazine, comes on the heels of the fast-growing company installing over 19 megawatts of solar panels across its six-state footprint in 2018. POWERHOME has since added two states in 2019 in Indiana and Missouri, bringing that total to eight and positioning the company for even further growth on the list next year. The numbers also make POWERHOME the No. 1 residential provider in the Midwest and Southeast.
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 clean, green energy.
“We’ve seen tremendous growth in the residential market in the eight states we serve,” said Jayson Waller, CEO POWERHOME Solar. “Our more than 8,000 customers are seeing the financial, environmental and convenience benefits of going solar and no longer simply relying on an antiquated grid.”
The U.S. solar market is expected to see 14% growth in 2019, with over 12 gigawatts of new solar power added to the grid this year — enough to power 2.28 million average American homes. This increase in installations is attributed to strong residential solar interest and a rush to get projects in before the 30% federal investment tax credit steps down to 26% next year.
