Los Angeles, CA (PRWEB) August 04, 2016 -- Pick My Solar congratulates its installer network for collectively adding the third-most rooftop solar capacity in the US last year, according to industry data published last week in Solar Power World’s Top 500 Solar Contractors list.
Now operating in all major US markets, Pick My Solar’s web-based platform includes 106 installation companies that closed on a combined 82.45 megawatts (MW) of new deals in 2015. Only SolarCity (870 MW) and Vivint Solar (230.8 MW) installed more rooftop solar capacity, according to the Solar Power World rooftop contractor rankings.
Pick My Solar selectively partners with regional installers to deliver competitive pricing, quality customer service, quick installations, and low cancellation rates. One of the criteria used to evaluate installers is efficiency based on the number of employees per MW of capacity installed. By this metric, Pick My Solar installers appearing on Solar Power World’s top contractors list are twice as efficient as the industry average, needing 17.5 employees per MW installed compared to 34.7 employees per MW.
“Data from this report backs up the importance of installer efficiency on our platform. Pick My Solar installers have the most optimized processes in the industry, resulting in the best value for the homeowner,” says Pick My Solar co-founder and CEO Max Aram.
Since launching three years ago, Pick My Solar has grown quickly due to a business model that remains agnostic to equipment, financing, and installers, building trust as a true consumer advocate. The Pick My Solar algorithm rates solar bids based on more than 40 criteria, favoring installers whose results demonstrate lean operations and efficient work processes.
Solar Power World’s fifth-annual top contractors list groups solar companies by market segment and by service provider type, such as developer, EPC, and electrical subcontractor. It also reports top contractors for 12 US states. Visit http://www.solarpowerworldonline.com for the full list.
