Top Solar Contractors 2020

Solar Power World magazine’s annual list includes Cary, NC based solar installer

Cary, N.C. August 10, 2020

Although the COVID-19 pandemic is the most immediate crisis unfolding at the moment, mitigating climate change remains an urgent issue. Solar PV installation is one way homeowners and businesses can help to reduce the greenhouse gases emitted by fossil fuels. Solar Power World has recognized the efforts of solar contractors across the United States in its 2020 Top Solar Contractors list, and local solar installer Yes Solar Solutions has been featured among the top 250 rooftop solar installers in the U.S. once again

In addition to persevering through this turbulent time in history, the 2020 class of Top Solar Contractors is innovating by adding energy storage to their offerings. Over one-third of this year’s contractors are also featured on the exclusive 2020 Top Solar + Storage Installers list and Yes Solar Solutions is again ranked number three for energy storage in North Carolina. Yes Solar Solutions earned its top ranking for the second year in a row by becoming North Carolina’s first certified installer of the Tesla Powerwall.

The List Honors U.S. Solar Installation Companies

The Top Solar Contractors list is developed each year by Solar Power World to honor the work of solar installers big and small. Solar firms in the utility, commercial, and residential markets are ranked by the number of kilowatts installed in the previous year. Companies are grouped and listed by specific service (developers, electrical subcontractors, EPCs, installation subcontractors, rooftop installers), markets, and states. “The Solar Power World team is so pleased to highlight more than 400 companies on the 2020 Top Solar Contractors list, especially during this unprecedented time,” said Kelsey Misbrener, senior editor of Solar Power World. “All contractors featured on the 2020 list reported strong 2019 installation numbers and are continuing to stand tall this year.”

COVID-19 Challenges to Solar

This year’s collection of over 400 Top Solar Contractors is facing obstacles that this industry has never seen before. The first quarter of 2020 was the country’s biggest ever, with 3.6 GW of new solar capacity added. However, COVID-19 impacts showed their force in Q2, and Wood Mackenzie is forecasting residential and non-residential markets will see 25% and 38% decreases in year-over-year installation volumes this year.

In the wake of COVID-19, Yes Solar Solutions continues to provide solar services safely by practicing new sanitizing routines their facilities and vehicles and by providing all employees with masks, gloves and booties. Additionally, Yes has adapted to COVID-19 by adopting new processes and procedures including:

– Virtual assessments
– Virtual sales presentations
– Remote document signing
– No-contact installation”
