2022 Top Contractors

Solar Energy World Takes Top Spot on 2023 Top Solar Contractors List  

ELKRIDGE, MARYLAND, JULY 26, 2022 — Despite concerns over supply chain interruptions and tariff investigations, the U.S. solar industry saw record solar and energy storage demand in 2021. Solar Energy World can attest to this, having one of its busiest years yet. Solar Power World has recognized the company’s installation success by ranking Solar Energy world at No. ONE on the 2022 Top Solar Contractors list

The Top Solar Contractors list is developed each year by industry magazine Solar Power World to honor the work of solar installers in the United States. Solar firms in the utility, commercial and residential markets are ranked by number of kilowatts installed in the previous year. Companies are grouped and listed by specific services, markets, and states. 

“The utility-scale solar market, of course, puts up huge installation numbers each year, but the majority of workers in the industry are constructing projects in the commercial and residential markets, which continue to break records,” said Kelly Pickerel, editor in chief of Solar Power World. “Over 85% of the companies on the 2022 Top Solar Contractors List primarily work in the residential and commercial sectors, and they all reported closing out the last year in a positive light.” 

According to data released by energy research firm Wood Mackenzie — before recent federal decisions to prevent additional tariffs on imported solar panels — the United States is expected to install 11 GW less than originally predicted in 2022, due to continued supply chain constraints, price increases and interconnection challenges. Still, a survey of the 2022 Top Solar Contractors class found that 59% predicted their business would increase in the next year, with only 9% assuming business would decrease.  

Solar Energy World employs over 350 employees. Their workers installed 17,246kW in 2021 of solar power in 2021. Since its founding in 2009, the company has installed 172,595kW of solar. The company is a leading provider and installer of solar panel systems for residential property owners in Maryland, Virginia, DC, New Jersey, Pennsylvania, Delaware, North Carolina, South Carolina, and Florida. With thousands of solar panel system installations since their founding in 2009, Solar Energy World is one of the fastest-growing independently operated solar companies on the East Coast. Every project, from consultation to installation, is done by Solar Energy World employees and is coupled with an industry-leading warranty and award-winning service. 

All of us here at Solar Energy World are extremely grateful for our customers and supporters that have brought us to this amazing point in our journey, and we cannot wait to continue our efforts in working toward a better future, because tomorrow matters!
