Hawaii Energy Smart recognized
WAILUKU – Hawaii Energy Smart of Wailuku is among the companies recently named to an annual and well-recognized list of North America’s top solar contractors.
The Top 500 Solar Contractors List is developed by Solar Power World magazine to recognize the work completed by solar contractors across the U.S. and Canada.
The companies on the list are growing the economy, providing jobs and offering electricity consumers a choice about how they get their power. “The companies on this year’s list exude solar-business brilliance, and they deserve to be recognized not only for being great companies but also for how their work positively impacts the environment,” said Kathie Zipp, managing editor of Solar Power World.
Solar energy is a renewable resource with great potential to significantly reduce our nation’s greenhouse gas emissions, according to the Solar Energy Industries Association, a national solar industry organization.
Hawaii Energy Smart works amid a burgeoning business market. The U.S. solar market is expected to grow 119 percent this year, according to global research firm GTM Research.
While a majority of solar electricity is produced at large, utility-scale solar power plants, the greatest number of solar jobs are located with companies like Hawaii Energy Smart – firms doing the work to bring clean energy to the public.
“No one can deny that local companies are supporting the growth of the solar industry and the economy as a whole,” Zipp said.
“Our top solar contractors are the face of the industry – meeting homeowners and business leaders on doorsteps every day.”
