[July 25, 2023 – Torrance, California] — Energy Service Partners was recognized for its increased effort to expand the U.S. market by taking a top spot—No. 2 in California, and No. 8 in Residential nationally —on the 2023 Top Solar Contractors List, released today by industry magazine Solar Power World. Energy Service Partners was also ranked the 89th largest installer in the country overall.
The Top Solar Contractors List is developed each year to honor the work of solar installers in the United States by Solar Power World, the leading online and print resource for news and information regarding solar installation, development and technology. Solar firms in the utility, commercial and residential markets are ranked by the number of kilowatts they installed in the previous year. Companies are grouped and listed by specific services, markets and states.
“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.”
With the United States receiving significant federal support of solar and storage in the Inflation Reduction Act, excitement for the technologies is growing at a record pace. Solar developers, installers and contractors are capitalizing on the moment by building more substantial projects across the country.
The United States reported its strongest first-quarter ever in Q1 2023 for solar panels installed, and industry analysts expect the solar market to triple in size over the next five years. The industry will stay busy, and companies on the Top Solar Contractors List will be the ones with their boots on the ground — or roof.
