ROCKVILLE, MD—August 22, 2016 — Solar power is a booming business worldwide, but nationwide solar developer, installer and financier, Standard Solar, is among the companies recently named to an annual and well-recognized list of North America’s top solar contractors. Standard Solar achieved a rank of 74 out of 500 solar companies. The company has consistently achieved an exemplary ranking since the list was launched in 2011.
The Top 500 Solar Contractors List is developed by Solar Power World magazine to recognize the work completed by solar contractors across the U.S. and Canada. The companies on the list are growing the economy, providing jobs and offering electricity consumers a choice about how they get their power. The list was released July 26.
“The companies on this year’s list exude solar-business brilliance, and they deserve to be recognized not only for being great companies but also for how their work positively impacts the environment,” said Kathie Zipp, managing editor of Solar Power World.
Standard Solar works amid a burgeoning business market. The U.S. solar market is expected to grow 119 percent this year, according to global research firm GTM Research. While a majority of solar electricity is produced at large, utility-scale solar power plants, the greatest number of solar jobs are located with companies like Standard Solar—firms doing the work to bring clean energy to the public.
