We’re at the tail-end of 2021, and the future is looking bright for solar energy. This year, solar soared to the top of the ranks for new electricity generating capacity. The industry achieved a major 54% growth in the market. We’re excited about all the achievements we had this year. That’s why we’re taking this opportunity to shine a bright light on our accomplishments.
Our Top 8 Notable Moments
1. Sunpro Solar is now an ADT company
This year, we entered a new chapter with ADT, reigning #1 in smart home security* across the United States. Sunpro Solar is now an ADT company, offering even more customers a safe, smart, and sustainable home. In 2022 and beyond, we hope to expand our reach for solar installations and help keep your home protected, connected and powered. This means an integrated home experience that includes security, automation, and energy management.
2. Made the Inc. 5000 List
Sunpro has taken solar energy seriously over the last year, which is why we made an appearance in Inc. Magazine. In spite of a global pandemic and an overall difficult year, we’ve managed to put our brightest stars forward. We ranked number 416 on the Inc. 5000 list of the fastest growing private companies in the U.S. This position marks our three-year revenue growth of 1,164%. The Inc. 5000 list represents a unique look at the most successful companies within the American economy. We’re proud to have made the list again this year.
3. Sold and installed solar on almost 20,000 homes
We’ve been busy this year. It’s an important job to get homes across the U.S. powered by solar and routinely, homeowners have chosen us to provide their solar installations. We’re proud of the work we’re doing in clean energy expansion.
On a larger scale, the entire U.S. solar industry reduces carbon emissions at the same rate as 2 billion trees. This year, our customers’ roofs have been estimated to generate over 64,000 kilowatts of clean solar-powered electricity. Take a look at what our customers’ roofs can power.
4. Provided more than 5,000 jobs
In E2’s Clean Jobs America 2021 report, it was discovered that more than 3 million Americans have jobs in clean energy. As mentioned above, the solar industry is booming when it comes to installations. Do you know what that means for the job market? A boost in the demand for solar power means production and distribution have to rise to meet it. The solar industry creates many opportunities for a diverse workforce. According to the International Renewable Energy Agency (IRENA), about 32% of renewable energy jobs are held by women and it stands to be an inclusive, diverse field. For instance, we’ve always done our part providing jobs for veterans. Through our initiative with Airstreams Renewables, we’ve been able to propel active and veteran military personnel forward with a career in solar. That’s why we’ve provided over 3,000 jobs in the solar industry this year.
5. Sunpro Referral App Paid $4.7 million
This year, Sunpro has paid out millions. The Referral App is our rewards program for the best marketing strategy to date — word of mouth. You could earn up to $1535 when your qualified friends go solar and it won’t cost you a thing. The Referral App creates a free, unique way for your recommendations to truly matter through our built-in networking tools.
6. Solar installation at an orphanage in Haiti
We went global for a great cause this year. One of our regional operations managers, Karl Wiant, commandeered a small team of Sunpro employees for an installation of a lifetime. Just outside Port-au-Prince, our specialists repaired and installed a solar system for Grace Children’s Home. Among the many benefits of solar, one of the most favorable is the low cost for energy generation. For the people at Grace, power is invaluable to keep the home powered when they need it most.
7. Ranking #2 on the Top Solar Contractors List
Every year, Solar Power World compiles a list of the best of the best for their Top Solar Contractors List. In 2021, we earned our spot as #2 for residential installations, making us the second largest residential solar contractor in the U.S. It’s safe to say we’ve made a name for ourselves in the solar industry. We’ve taken residential solar installations to the next level year after year. It’s our goal to bring affordable solar energy to homes across the U.S., and that’s why we keep growing.
8. And growing…and growing…
