The Solar Power World Top Solar Contractors list includes Burlington-based solar firm
Burlington, VT — More than 10,600 megawatts of solar power were installed last year in the United States, and Burlington, Vermont-based solar project developer and installer Encore Renewable Energy has been recognized again by Solar Power World magazine for its growing contributions to the industry. Encore was recognized as a top 25 solar development company in the US, with a ranking of 23. Additionally, Encore achieved a rank of 123 out of 500 solar companies on the magazine’s 2018 Top Solar Contractors list.
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 2018 list was released on July 24th.
“Solar Power World is very excited about the 2018 class of Top Solar Contractors,” said Kelly Pickerel, editor in chief of Solar Power World. “Our 2017 list showed impressive installation numbers after 2016’s rush to meet ITC requirements, and many companies were hesitant to show unavoidable installation dips after last year’s high. We’re happy to feature a strong group of thriving U.S. solar installers on the 2018 Top Solar Contractors list. These companies truly are at the top of their markets.”
2017 marked Encore Renewable Energy’s most significant year in its history, both with respect to the nature of projects completed and commenced, as well as the Company’s ongoing commitment to the environment, its employees, and the communities in which the Company works. Encore installed more than 8.4MWp of solar power in 2017, bringing its total installed capacity since inception to over 32MW.
“We are thrilled to be recognized by Solar Power World as one of the top solar development and installation companies in the United States and are excited to see continued improvements in our ranking over the past several years, despite the headwinds that the industry has faced over the past few years. We look forward to continuing to provide world-class solar projects for our customers”, said Chad Farrell, Encore’s founder and Chief Executive Officer.
