The Solar Power World Top Solar Contractors list includes San Ramon-based solar firm.

Coming off the biggest year ever for U.S. solar installations, We’re proud to be named as one of the best solar contractors in the United States by Solar Power World magazine. Solar Technologies has been recognized as one of the top 25 installers in California and achieved a rank of 171 out of 500 solar companies nationwide.

The Top Solar Contractors list is developed by Solar Power World to recognize the work completed by solar contractors across the United States. Produced annually, the Top Solar Contractors list celebrates the achievements of U.S. solar developers, subcontractors and installers within the utility, commercial and residential markets. The list was released on July 25.

“The 2017 Top Solar Contractors list features 500 of the best solar contractors in the United States,” said Kelly Pickerel, managing editor of Solar Power World. “From solar hotbeds on the coasts to the up-and-coming Midwest solar market, every installer adding even the smallest solar array to the grid is making a positive impact on our communities. We’re proud to recognize these companies and their efforts to bring solar power to U.S. homes and businesses.”

The U.S. solar market installed more than 14,700 MW of solar in 2016, nearly doubling the capacity installed in 2015. For the first time ever, solar was ranked as the No. 1 source of new electric generating capacity additions brought online throughout the year. GTM Research and the Solar Energy Industries Association (SEIA) predict the cumulative U.S. solar market to nearly triple in size over the next five years. By 2022, more than 18 GW of solar photovoltaic capacity will be installed annually, and Solar Technologies will continue to be a major player in adding solar to the grid.

Solar Technologies employs 65 workers, who installed 5,400 kW of solar in 2016. Since its founding in 1998, the company has installed 25,000 kW of solar. The company is a leader in helping Bay Area homeowners and business owners save with solar.
