According to The Solar Foundation’s “2014 State Solar Jobs Report”, Washington has 128 solar related businesses, employing over 2,400 people, and ranking Washington at 17th nationwide. The solar industry is one of the State’s fastest growing job creators representing 28th of the percentage of the State’s employment ranking.
“Sunergy Systems is honored to have been a key driver and leader in State’s solar boom,” says Howard Lamb, Founder of Sunergy Systems. “When we opened our doors back in 2005, we had monthly celebrations at Hale’s Brewery every time a customer went solar with us! Now, here we are in 2015, expecting to install our 1,000th solar energy system this summer, which coincides very well with our 10 year anniversary on July 1st!”
