Standard Solar Ranks #6 Top U.S. Commercial Solar Company by Solar Power World, Recognized As Leader in the Clean Energy Transformation of America

ROCKVILLE, MD.—July 22, 2021 — The U.S. solar industry has shown record growth in the past year and leading commercial and community solar developer Standard Solar has continued to grow with the industry. The company’s success has been recognized by Solar Power World, the premier source of news and information regarding solar. Solar Power World has ranked Standard Solar at No. 6 on their 2021 Top U.S. Commercial Solar Contractors list.

The Top Solar Contractors list first launched ten years ago, honors the work of solar companies in the United States. Solar firms in the utility, commercial and residential markets are ranked by the number of kilowatts installed in the previous year. Companies are grouped and listed by specific service, markets and states.

“Not even COVID-19 closures and slowdowns could prevent the solar industry from installing fantastic numbers last year,” said Kelly Pickerel, editor in chief of Solar Power World. “The Solar Power World team is so glad to recognize over 400 companies on the 2021 Top Solar Contractors list that not only survived a pandemic but thrived in spite of it.”

Last year the U.S. solar industry grew 43%, and in the first quarter of 2021, total installation capacity reached 102.8 gigawatts, enough electricity to power 18.6 million American homes. The research firm Wood Mackenzie has predicted that the U.S. market will quadruple by 2030. Standard Solar’s projects around the U.S. are an integral part of that growth.

With hundreds of installations and more than 200 megawatts, the company has become one of the largest asset owners in distributed generation and community solar and storage in the nation.
