Solar Power World Ranks Rosendin Electric Number 3 in List of Top 400 Solar Contractors

Rosendin Electric Continues to Rise in the Annual Rankings of the Best Solar Contractors in North America.

San Jose, Calif. (September 13, 2014) -- Rosendin Electric, the nation's largest private electrical contractor and an employee-owned company, has earned the third place ranking in Solar Power World's list of the Top 400 Solar Contractors in North America. The publication also ranked Rosendin Electric number one among the top 100 solar contractors in California; number two among the top 50 solar specialists in engineering, procurement, and construction (EPC); and number three among the top 25 utility solar contractors.

Solar Power World compiles an annual list that ranks solar contractors throughout North America based on a variety of criteria, including number of megawatts installed for the year and specific markets served (e.g. utility, residential, or commercial). To date, Rosendin Electric installed solar systems capable of generating 478 megawatts (MW) to make the company number three in North America.

In congratulating Rosendin Electric, Frank Andorka, Editorial Director of Solar Power World, wrote, "Only a tiny fraction of the nation's companies have demonstrated such remarkably consistent excellence, particularly in the difficult economic environment of the past few years. This achievement truly puts you in rarified company."

Rosendin Electric's Solar Division specializes in installing utility-grade and distributed generation (DG) solar projects. The company designs and builds mid- to large-scale solar photovoltaic (PV) systems, including substation design and installation, prefabrication, energy storage systems, and ancillary systems. Rosendin Electric's Solar Division has installed PC systems for commercial, hospitals, schools, universities, and government facilities as well as utility-grade solar farms. Project sizes range from 100 kW to more than 200 MW. And Rosendin Electric performs more than 85 percent of its own EPC, which mitigates risk for investors and makes contracts more viable for financing since the company maintains total control over solar project deliverables.

"Ranking number three out of the top 400 North American contractors is a real milestone for our solar group," said David Lincoln, Director of Solar Operations for Rosendin Electric. "We are now installing utility-grade solar systems across North America, as well as in Puerto Rico and the Caribbean. Our growing reputation and EPC capabilities continue to bring in new clients who see the value of having Rosendin Electric on their team."
