When my boss asked me to come up with a list of the top 100 solar contractors in the United States, I immediately thought of my lovely wife Beth.
Beth is an obsessive list maker. She will make a to-do list to start her day and then five minutes later a list for the morning. By noon, she’s on to her third list for the day.
For 17 years, I’ve watched her do this, and for 17 years I’ve failed to understand it (I’m Oscar Madison to her Felix Unger). But her lists keep her organized, and she keeps me organized. The lists, prioritized with the most important items at the top, are a lifesaver. Otherwise, my life would be a complete mess.
(It just occurred to me that some of my younger readers may not recognize my reference above. Please take a moment to click here to understand it. I’ll wait……..OK, you can proceed now.)
I quickly realized I was on my own — well, not really on my own, of course. I turned to members of my editorial advisory board (EAB), contractors, colleagues at WTWH Media and more. We wanted to make sure we put together a comprehensive form to take a true measure of what installation companies in this industry are doing.
After extensive review, the form is now up on our website, and I can’t encourage you strongly enough to fill it out and submit your application to participate in Solar Power World’s inaugural Top 100 Solar Contractors list.
If you’re proud of your company’s achievements, you owe it to yourself — and your employees — to apply to be part of this list.
You and your employees work hard to further the interests of the solar industry through hard work, determination and gigawatts of installations (2.7 GW at press time), and we at Solar Power World appreciate your efforts. To that end, we created a program that will give you the recognition you deserve — based on independent, verifiable information.
We expect our list to become the Inc. 500/5000 list of the solar industry, one that companies clamor to make every year. (In the interests of full disclosure, WTWH Media is on the Inc. 5000.) The list will be broken down into Residential, Commercial and Utility installations, so you will only be competing against your peers.
It only takes a few minutes to apply for a chance to join this elite group.
The next name on our list should be yours.
