Pivot Energy is proud to announce it has been recognized by Solar Power World magazine for its commercial and community solar projects developed across the country. Pivot Energy has been ranked 184 out of 415 solar companies on the magazine’s 2019 Top Solar Contractors list, including as the No. 1 solar installer in South Dakota.
The Top Solar Contractors list is developed by Solar Power World to recognize the work completed by solar contractors across the United States. 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.
“We are honored to be recognized by an industry leading news source as a top solar contractor in the U.S.,” said Jon Sullivan, Pivot Energy’s Vice President of Development. “We are seeing the solar industry grow at a rapid pace, making the market increasingly more competitive. We believe the wide range of services we offer across the entire solar value chain positions us as a national leader. We appreciate Solar Power World for recognizing our team’s hard work and dedication.”
“Solar Power World enjoys assembling the Top Solar Contractors list each year, and our 2019 edition features hundreds of companies making big impacts in local energy markets,” said Kelly Pickerel, editor in chief of Solar Power World. “Solar power is becoming competitive with traditional electricity sources in more markets, and cities and states are demanding more renewable energy options. It’s a great time to be a solar installer, and we’re happy to highlight the best installation companies in the country on our list.”
The U.S. solar market is expected to see 14% growth in 2019, with over 12 GW of new solar power added to the grid this year — enough to power 2.28 million average American homes. Community solar in particular has become the fastest growing segment of solar over the last five years, accounting for more than 1.3 GWs of total installed capacity, enough to power nearly 140,000 households.
