For the 9th year in a row, Built Well Solar has been ranked among the “Top Solar Companies in U.S.,” recognized for its contributions to the industry by Solar Power World magazine. Built Well Solar is Long Island’s original solar company, capturing the power of the sun for residential and commercial customers since 2001.
The Top Solar Contractors list each year honors the work of solar installers in the United States. “Not even COVID-19 closures and slowdowns could prevent the solar industry from installing fantastic numbers last year,” said Kelly Pickerel, editor in chief of Solar Power World. “The Solar Power World team is so glad to recognize over 400 companies on the 2021 Top Solar Contractors list that not only survived a pandemic but thrived in spite of it.”
“We’re very proud to make the 2021 Top Solar Contractors list, particularly after the uncertainties and industry shut-down this year during the pandemic” said Built Well Solar founder Dan Sabia. “Solar Power World magazine is a leading trade publication and is always very supportive of local solar energy companies, which they consider to be the backbone and heartbeat of our industry. We’re very grateful this year in particular to be able to continue to offer the day-to-day services in helping Long Island homeowners and business owners make the switch to solar energy and away from dependence on fossil fuels.”
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 residential market saw an 11% increase, which is remarkable considering the difficulties of maneuvering home solar projects through pandemic precautions.
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.
Built Well Solar is a pioneer in the industry, celebrating its 20th anniversary this year, in business longer than anyone else in the Long Island market. Built Well Solar has designed and installed more PV system installations on Long Island than most other companies combined and is known for top-quality installations and “no pressure” personalized customer service.
