The Solar Power World Top Solar Contractors list includes Solar-Fit, a Daytona based solar firm

Daytona Beach—Coming off the biggest year ever for U.S. solar installations, local installer Solar-Fit is proud to be named one of the top solar contractors in the United States by Solar Power World magazine.

The Top Solar Contractors list is developed by Solar Power World to recognize the work completed by solar contractors across the United States. Produced annually, the Top Solar Contractors list celebrates the achievements of U.S. solar developers, subcontractors and installers within the utility, commercial and residential markets. The list was released on July 25.

“The 2017 Top Solar Contractors list features 500 of the best solar contractors in the United States,” said Kelly Pickerel, managing editor of Solar Power World. “From solar hotbeds on the coasts to the up-and-coming Midwest solar market, every installer adding even the smallest solar array to the grid is making a positive impact on our communities. We’re proud to recognize these companies and their efforts to bring solar power to U.S. homes and businesses.”

The U.S. solar market installed more than 14,700 MW of solar in 2016, nearly doubling the capacity installed in 2015. For the first time ever, solar was ranked as the No. 1 source of new electric generating capacity additions brought online throughout the year. GTM Research and the Solar Energy Industries Association (SEIA) predict the cumulative U.S. solar market to nearly triple in size over the next five years. By 2022, more than 18 GW of solar photovoltaic capacity will be installed annually, and Solar-Fit will continue to be a major player in adding solar to the grid.

Solar-Fit, founded in 1975, services 7 counties in Florida and employs 28 team members. The company takes great pride in being a pioneer in promoting solar energy utilization in Florida and helping thousands of homeowners and business owners save money each day while enjoying a better quality of life.

“Our longevity and success is a direct result of the passion and dedication of every Solar-Fit team member, said Bill Gallagher, Solar-Fit CEO. Our customers become our friends and our partners for life. We love what we do, and we love the feeling that comes from making a positive contribution in the world.”
