Solar Energy World has been recognized by Solar Power World magazine, achieving a rank of 100 out of 407 solar companies in the USA on the magazine’s 2020 Top Solar Contractors list for total Kilowatts Installed in 2019. It also ranks 21 in the USA for total residential kW installed and has held on to the number one spot for residential installations in Maryland for the fourth year in a row.

With thousands of custom installations since opening in 2009, Solar Energy World is headquartered in Maryland with offices in New Jersey and Florida.  It currently employs 184 workers who installed more than 13,695.9 total kW of solar power in 2019.  The company has installed 127,233.9 kW since its founding, making it one of the fastest-growing, residential solar companies on the East Coast.

Although the COVID-19 pandemic is the immediate crisis unfolding at the moment, mitigating climate change is also an urgent issue. Solar PV installation is one way to help reduce greenhouse gases from fossil fuels.  “It’s exciting to know that despite the current health crisis, solar companies nationwide are surviving and still providing power to millions of Americans so they can reduce their carbon footprint, while saving them anywhere from 20-100% on electricity costs. Saving money is more important now than ever before.” states Laureen Peck, Chief Marketing Officer for Solar Energy World,  “Solar Energy World will continue to work toward a clean energy future to protect the environment for our children and grandchildren and to provide economic relief to families right now through lower energy costs.”

The Top Solar Contractors list is developed each year by Solar Power World to honor the work of solar installers big and small. 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 service (developers, electrical subcontractors, EPCs, installation subcontractors, rooftop installers), markets and states.  “The Solar Power World team is so pleased to highlight more than 400 companies on the 2020 Top Solar Contractors list, especially during this unprecedented time,” said Kelsey Misbrener, senior editor of Solar Power World. “All contractors featured on the 2020 list reported strong 2019 installation numbers and are continuing to stand tall this year.”
