Freeport, Maine, July 25, 2023 — With the United States witnessing significant federal support for solar and energy storage in the Inflation Reduction Act, the momentum behind these technologies is growing at an unprecedented rate. Solar developers, installers, and contractors are seizing the opportunity by undertaking large-scale projects across the country. Maine Solar Solutions has been recognized yet again for its outstanding efforts to expand the U.S. solar market, securing a coveted spot on the prestigious 2023 Top Solar Contractors List, recently released by Solar Power World.
The Top Solar Contractors List, compiled annually by Solar Power World, serves as a testament to the remarkable work of solar installers nationwide. Ranking companies based on the number of kilowatts they installed in the previous year, the list showcases industry leaders in utility, commercial, and residential markets. Maine-based Maine Solar Solutions announced today that they have secured an impressive position at No. 231 in the nation. That’s a 52-position increase from last year!
“Renewable energy accounts for a quarter of U.S. electrical generation, now far exceeding electricity produced by burning coal,” said Kelsey Misbrener, managing editor of Solar Power World. “Solar power is an important member of that renewable makeup, and companies on the Top Solar Contractors List are all contributing to our country’s shift to cleaner electricity. We are honored to recognize them each year for their necessary work putting green kilowatts on roofs, over parking lots, in desert locations, and across water reservoirs. Every project is making a difference.”
As the United States reports its strongest first quarter ever for installed solar panels in Q1 of 2023, industry experts anticipate a tripling in the size of the solar market over the next five years. In this bustling industry, companies listed on the Top Solar Contractors List are the ones with their boots on the ground — or on the roof — working diligently to shape a sustainable future.
Maine Solar Solutions takes pride in employing 50 dedicated local professionals who installed 4,142 KW of solar power last year alone. Since its founding in 2012, they have successfully installed a total of 11,761 KW of clean, renewable energy.
“We are truly honored to be recognized on the prestigious Top Solar Contractors List again this year,” says Sam Zuckerman, founder and owner of Maine Solar Solutions. “This achievement reflects the unwavering commitment and expertise of our team in driving the adoption of solar energy in Maine. We remain dedicated to providing innovative and sustainable solar solutions that make a positive impact not only on our environment but right here in Maine through employment, education, and competitive pricing. We thank Solar Power World for this recognition, and we will continue working tirelessly to shape a cleaner, greener future.”
