6 from New Jersey listed in Top 100 of Solar Power World’s Top Contractors list

Solar developers, installers and contractors are capitalizing on the significant federal support for solar and storage in the Inflation Reduction Act by building more substantial projects across the country. Their increased efforts to expand the U.S. market are recognized in the 2023 Top Solar Contractors List released this week by Solar Power World.

“Renewable energy accounts for a quarter of U.S. electrical generation, now far exceeding electricity produced by burning coal,” Kelsey Misbrener, managing editor of Solar Power World, said.

“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 Top Solar Contractors List is an annual listing of solar contractors in the U.S. working in the utility, commercial, residential and community solar markets.

The U.S. reported its strongest first quarter ever in Q1 2023 for solar panels installed, and industry analysts expect the 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.

Six firms from New Jersey made the Top 100:

  • No. 27: CS Energy, Edison;
  • No. 47: Trinity Solar, Wall;
  • No. 57: Vanguard Energy Partners, Branchburg;
  • No. 63: Core Development Group, Mahwah;
  • No. 71: Solar Landscape, Asbury;
  • No. 100: Suntuity, Holmdel.

Methodology: Companies are listed according to the kilowatt capacity of projects they installed, developed or helped construct in the previous year within the borders of the U.S. and its territories (global installations are not counted, including installations in Canada).
