The Solar Power World Top Solar Contractors list includes Newark-based solar firm

Newark, DE—Coming off the biggest year ever for U.S. solar installations, local installer CMI Solar & Electric, Inc. is proud to be named one of the top solar contractors in the United States by Solar Power World magazine. CMI achieved a rank of 251 out of 500 solar companies.

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. The list was released on July 25.

“The 2017 Top Solar Contractors list features 500 of the best solar contractors in the United States,” said Kelly Pickerel, managing editor of Solar Power World. “From solar hotbeds on the coasts to the up-and-coming Midwest solar market, every installer adding even the smallest solar array to the grid is making a positive impact on our communities. We’re proud to recognize these companies and their efforts to bring solar power to U.S. homes and businesses.”

The U.S. solar market installed more than 14,700 MW of solar in 2016, nearly doubling the capacity installed in 2015. For the first time ever, solar was ranked as the No. 1 source of new electric generating capacity additions brought online throughout the year. GTM Research and the Solar Energy Industries Association (SEIA) predict the cumulative U.S. solar market to nearly triple in size over the next five years. By 2022, more than 18 GW of solar photovoltaic capacity will be installed annually, and CMI will continue to be a major player in adding solar to the grid.

CMI employs 20 workers, who installed 2,383kW of solar in 2016. Since its founding in 1998 the company has installed 17,061 kW of solar.

CMI was founded in 1998. Since then, we have built the company into one of the most experienced solar installation companies in the region. At CMI, we are first and foremost electricians. All field personnel carry an Electrical License issued through Delaware and have been formally educated through the Delaware Apprenticeship Program. No job is too big, or too small, for CMI. We have installed everything from a 1.8-kW to over 2-MW, from traditional roof mounts to commercial carports and solar fields. All jobs receive the same level of support and professionalism regardless of size.
