More than 10,600 megawatts of solar power were installed last year in the United States, and local turnkey provider, Sullivan Solar Power, has been recognized by Solar Power World magazine for its contributions to the industry. Sullivan Solar Power has once again achieved a ranking 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 this week.
“Our 2017 list showed impressive installation numbers after 2016’s huge rush to meet tax credit requirements, and many companies were hesitant to show unavoidable installation dips after last year’s high,” said Kelly Pickerel, editor in chief of Solar Power World. “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.”
A major highlight of 2017 was the non-residential market growing 28 percent year-over-year, the fourth straight year of annual growth for commercial, industrial and community solar. Sullivan Solar Power also saw a spike in commercial installations, capping off the year by beginning the installation of the largest solar system in Major League Baseball at San Diego’s Petco Park. The 716 high-efficiency panels will generate over 12 million kilowatt hours over the next 25 years and is larger than the other seven solar power systems in the league, combined.
The first quarter of 2018 showed a 13 percent growth over the first quarter of 2017, and Sullivan Solar Power will continue to contribute to the wave of increasing solar generation. The company has claimed the title of being the top energy storage installer in Southern California, outranking national competitor Tesla.
“For nearly 15 years we’ve created solar advocates and fought for solar rights to fundamentally change the way we generate electricity,” said Daniel Sullivan, founder and president of Sullivan Solar Power, “It’s an honor that Sullivan Solar Power is recognized as one of the top solar contractors in the country.”
