Renewvia Energy was recently named to Solar Power World’s Top 100 Solar Commercial Contractors list for 2016. Renewvia was one of six commercial contractors in Georgia to make the list, which included 100 commercial solar companies from across the United States and Canada. Renewvia was also included on Solar Power World’s 2016 Top 500 North American Solar Contractors list.
The Commercial Top 100 Solar Contractors list is published annually by Solar Power World to recognize outstanding solar businesses and the role they play in promoting sustainability and economic growth.
“The companies on this year’s list exude solar-business brilliance, and they deserve to be recognized not only for being great companies but also for how their work positively impacts the environment,” said Kathie Zipp, managing editor of Solar Power World.
Renewvia has experienced tremendous growth since its creation in 2009 by partners Trey Jarrard, CEO, and Eric Domescik, president. The company designs, installs, owns and operates commercial and utility solar power systems in the United States and around the world, including Latin America, the Pacific Islands and Africa. Renewvia provides its clients a complete range of solar solutions, including turnkey solar installation, integrated financing and solar consulting services. Renewvia has helped businesses, farms, hospitals, schools and governments lower energy bills by as much as half through solar power.
“It’s been an exciting time for solar development, domestically and abroad, with a wealth of opportunities for businesses, schools and governments to take advantage of the savings that solar power provides,” said Jarrard. “Our passion is helping connect the dots for our clients– finding the right partners, financing, and technology so they can complete their project and start realizing savings.”
The use of solar power has been booming since 2010 due to tax incentives, public support, technology innovations, and a steep decline in the price of solar equipment. In fact, the average cost of commercial solar photovoltaic (PV) projects has dropped by 30% in just the last three years, according to the Solar Energy Industries Association (SEIA). Also from the SEIA, the United States hit 1 million solar installations in 2016, and that number is expected to double by 2018. While 74% of the growth comes from utility projects, residential and non-residential projects have been rising as well. The growth is good for the environment and the economy. Around 209,000 Americans work in solar and experts predict that number will double to more than 420,000 workers by 2020.
“No one can deny that local companies are supporting the growth of the solar industry and the economy as a whole,” Zipp said. “Our top solar contractors are the face of the industry—meeting homeowners and business leaders on their doorsteps every day.”
