  • Press Release

The Solar Power World Top Solar Contractors list includes Fort Lauderdale based solar firm

FORT LAUDERDALE, FL – With renewable energy expected to be the fastest growing source of U.S. electricity generation for at least the next two years, local solar installer Moss Solar is happy to be contributing to the country’s energy mix. Moss Solar has been recognized by Solar Power World magazine for its installation efforts. Moss Solar is ranked amongst the top solar companies in the nation and ranked the #1 solar company in Hawaii on the magazine’s 2019 Top Solar Contractors list.

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% growth in 2019, with over 12 GW of new solar power added to the grid this year — enough to power 2.28 million average American homes. This increase in installations is attributed to strong residential solar interest and a rush to get projects in before the 30% federal investment tax credit steps down to 26% next year. Similarly, with this industry trend, Moss’ solar backlog includes over 1,000MWs DC to be installed in 2019.

The emerging energy storage market will also influence solar installations going forward. In markets that encourage grid service applications like time-of-use (TOU) shifting, self-consumption and backup power, battery systems paired with solar arrays are attractive options for home and business owners looking to save costs. Solar Power World included the first Solar+Storage Installer sublist in the 2019 Top Solar Contractors edition in recognition of solar installers’ early efforts at coupling the two technologies for customers.

Since founding the solar division in 2009, the company has been involved in over 3,000 MWs DC of solar. The company, with regional offices across the United States, focuses on construction management, design-build and public-private partnerships. Moss’ Solar division is the firm’s fastest growing division.

“At Moss, we bring the wealth of our industry experience to every project we undertake, and we are honored to have been named as one of 2019’s Top Solar Contractors by Solar Power World,” said Mike Little, executive vice president of Moss. “Solar power is making an incredible impact across the world and we’re proud to be part of its expanding presence across the United States.”
