[Mandeville, Louisiana, July 25, 2023] — With the United States receiving significant federal support of solar and storage installations in the Inflation Reduction Act of 2022, excitement for the technologies is growing at a record pace. Solar developers, installers and contractors are fueling the momentum by building more solar and storage projects across the country. ADT Solar has been recognized for its increased efforts to expand the U.S. residential solar and storage market by taking a top spot on the 2023 Top Residential Solar Contractors List, released today by Solar Power World.
The Top Solar Contractors List is developed each year by industry magazine Solar Power World to honor the work of solar installers in the United States. Solar firms in the utility, commercial and residential markets are ranked by the number of kilowatts they installed in the previous year. Companies are grouped and listed by specific services, markets and states. ADT Solar is ranked no. 2 for residential solar installation in the nation, and is the no. 1 installer in the states of Louisiana and Kansas.
In addition, the 2023 Top Solar Installer award-winner is Joseph Silver, regional foreman at Louisiana-based ADT Solar.
“Renewable energy accounts for a quarter of U.S. electrical generation, now far exceeding electricity produced by burning coal,” said Kelsey Misbrener, managing editor of Solar Power World. “Solar power is an important member of that renewable makeup, and companies on the Top Solar Contractors List are all contributing to our country’s shift to cleaner electricity. We are honored to recognize them each year for their necessary work putting green kilowatts on roofs, over parking lots, in desert locations and across water reservoirs. Every project is making a difference.”
The United States reported its strongest first-quarter ever in Q1 2023 for solar panels installed, and industry analysts expect the solar market to triple in size over the next five years. The industry will stay busy, and companies on the Top Solar Contractors List will be the ones with their boots on the ground—or roof.
ADT Solar employs 2,292 workers who installed 193 megawatts of solar power in 2022. Since its founding in 2007, the company has installed 533 megawatts of solar. As one of the most trusted brands in America, ADT Solar empowers people and powers homes.
“ADT is proud to be part of the drive to bring more renewable and sustainable energy to consumers,” Jamie Haenggi, president of ADT Solar, said. “Choosing the right rooftop solar provider is an important decision for a homeowner. Our focus has been ensuring our end-to-end process delivers on the ADT brand, which has stood for trust, quality and peace of mind for nearly 150 years.”
