SANFORD, FL, JULY 2022 — Despite concerns over supply chain interruptions and tariff investigations, the U.S. solar industry saw record solar and energy storage demand in 2021. Solcium Solar can attest to this, having one of its busiest years yet. Solar Power World has recognized the company’s installation success by ranking Solcium Solar at No. 369 for the Nation and No. 33 for the State of Florida on the 2022 Top Solar Contractors list.
The Top Solar Contractors list is developed each year by industry magazine 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 services, markets and states.
“The utility-scale solar market, of course, puts up huge installation numbers each year, but the majority of workers in the industry are constructing projects in the commercial and residential markets, which continue to break records,” said Kelly Pickerel, editor in chief of Solar Power World. “Over 85% of the companies on the 2022 Top Solar Contractors List primarily work in the residential and commercial sectors, and they all reported closing out the last year in a positive light.”
According to data released by energy research firm Wood Mackenzie — before recent federal decisions to prevent additional tariffs on imported solar panels — the United States is expected to install 11 GW less than originally predicted in 2022, due to continued supply chain constraints, price increases and interconnection challenges. Still, a survey of the 2022 Top Solar Contractors class found that 59% predicted their business would increase in the next year, with only 9% assuming business would decrease.
Solcium Solar employs 60 workers who installed 708 kW of solar power in 2021. Since its founding in 2021, the company has installed over 3,000 kW of solar. The company is proud to reach this milestone in its first year of operation – a true testament to their commitment in becoming agents of change for the industry.
“This team continuously impresses us with their grit and tenacity. Solcium’s culture of putting the customers first and leading with an educational approach is what sets us apart from other companies. This starts with our team – they prove that good guys can finish first. The success of Solcium Solar is solely based on the commitment of our entire team. We’re so proud of the work being done at Solcium Solar,” states Gustavo Panosso – CSO, Owner and Founder.
