The Solar Power World Top Solar Contractors list includes Piedmont based solar firm
Piedmont, South Dakota, July 23, 2019– With renewable energy expected to be the fastest growing source of U.S. electricity generation for at least the next two years, local solar installer GenPro Energy Solutions is happy to be contributing to the country’s energy mix. GenPro Energy Solutions has been recognized by Solar Power World magazine for its installation efforts, achieving a rank of 120 out of 415 solar companies on the magazine’s 2019 Top Solar Contractors list. GenPro Energy Solutions achieved the rank of #1 in North Dakota, #2 in South Dakota, #2 in Nebraska and #15 in Colorado.
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.
“Solar Power World enjoys assembling the Top Solar Contractors list each year, and our 2019 edition features hundreds of companies making big impacts in local energy markets,” said Kelly Pickerel, editor in chief of Solar Power World. “Solar power is becoming competitive with traditional electricity sources in more markets, and cities and states are demanding more renewable energy options. It’s a great time to be a solar installer, and we’re happy to highlight the best installation companies in the country on our list.”
The U.S. solar market is expected to see 14% growth in 2019, with over 12 GW 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.
GenPro Energy Solutions installed 7445.5 kW of solar power in 2018. Since its founding in 2003, the company has installed 15,947 kW solar. Molly Brown, Vice President of Energy Production reflects on the recent achievement, “We are extremely proud to continue to climb the ranks of the Top Solar Contractor’s list. While our growth has been swift we have strived to maintain the highest-quality installations”.
