BURLINGTON, Vt.: The Peck Company (or “Peck” or “the Company”) (NASDAQ:PECK), a leading commercial solar engineering, procurement and construction (EPC) company, today announced that it has once again been named on Solar Power World’s Top Solar Contractors list, the most recognized annual listing of the top U.S. solar contractors working in the utility, commercial and residential markets. The Company was also ranked number one solar engineering, procurement and construction (EPC) provider in Vermont.
“We are constructing our energy future, having installed more than 125,000 kW of solar power since our inception,” said Jeff Peck, Chief Executive Officer of The Peck Company. “Utilities, corporations and home owners are looking for more renewable energy sources as businesses and individuals switch their cars to electric vehicles and HVAC systems to heat pumps. We believe this shift to renewable energy is a long-term secular trend that will continue to create a range of growth opportunities for The Peck Company, as we can enter the solar array value chain and deliver value at any scale or stage. We look forward to bringing more clean, solar energy online as we expand across the Northeast and execute our growth strategy as a Nasdaq listed company.”
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, and ranks contractors by kilowatts installed in the previous year.
“Solar Power World enjoys assembling the Top Solar Contractors list each year, and our 2019 edition features hundreds of companies making big impacts in local energy markets,” said Kelly Pickerel, editor in chief of Solar Power World. “Solar power is becoming competitive with traditional electricity sources in more markets, and cities and states are demanding more renewable energy options. It’s a great time to be a solar installer, and we’re happy to highlight the best installation companies in the country on our list.”
The U.S. solar market is expected to see 14 percent growth in 2019, with over 12 gigawatts of new solar power added to the grid this year — enough to supply 2.28 million average American homes. That increase in installations is attributed to strong residential and commercial interest in renewable energy as part of a diversified, low-carbon national energy mix.
