The U.S. solar industry is on the upswing, thanks to a pro-renewables presidential administration
and increased concern over climate change. Swinerton Renewable Energy has had a front-row
seat to this action, with business increasing over the last year. Solar Power World has recognized the company's installation success by ranking Swinerton Renewable Energy at No. 1 on the 2021 Top Solar Contractors list.
The Top Solar Contractors list is developed each year by Solar Power World to honor the work of solar installers in the United States. Solar firms in the utility, commercial and residential markets are ranked by number of kilowatts installed in the previous year. Companies are grouped and listed by specific service, markets and states.
The U.S. solar industry grew 43% in 2020, installing more solar panels on homes, businesses and across the country than any other year on record. The federal government passed a two-year extension on the solar investment tax credit (ITC) at the end of 2020, which will further accelerate solar adoption across all market segments. After installing 19.2 GW in 2020, research firm Wood Mackenzie expects the U.S. solar market to quadruple by 2030.
Swinerton Renewable Energy employs over 900 workers who installed 1,708,900 kilowatts of solar power in 2020. SRE completed projects in three states, including over 1.1 GW of utility-scale capacity in Texas alone. As of July 2021, SRE's total portfolio includes over 8 GW of total installations in the U.S., Canada and Mexico.
