Top solar contractor 2023

Solar developers, installers, and contractors are capitalizing on the significant federal support for solar and storage in the Inflation Reduction Act by building more substantial projects across the country. Core Development Group was recognized for its increased effort to expand the U.S. market by taking a top spot on the 2023 Top Solar Contractors List, released today by industry magazine Solar Power World.

The Top Solar Contractors List is developed each year and ranks solar firms in the utility, commercial, and residential markets by the number of kilowatts they installed in the previous year. Companies are grouped and listed by specific services, markets, and states. Core Development Group is ranked No. 63 in the nation.

“Renewable energy accounts for a quarter of U.S. electrical generation, now far exceeding electricity produced by burning coal,” said Kelsey Misbrener, managing editor of Solar Power World. “Solar power is an important member of that renewable makeup, and companies on the Top Solar Contractors List are all contributing to our country’s shift to cleaner electricity. We are honored to recognize them each year for their necessary work putting green kilowatts on roofs, over parking lots, in desert locations, and across water reservoirs. Every project is making a difference.”

The United States reported its strongest first quarter ever in Q1 2023 for solar panels installed, and industry analysts expect the solar market to triple in size over the next five years. The industry will stay busy, and companies on the Top Solar Contractors List will be the ones with their boots on the ground — or the roof.

Core Development Group partners with commercial energy consumers of all sizes, along with developers and consultants, to help businesses make a flawless transition to clean and renewable energy. Since its founding in 2012, the company has designed, developed, and constructed hundreds of commercial renewable energy projects, and provided related consulting services to companies in the U.S. and abroad.

“To be ranked by Solar Power World as one of the top commercial Solar Contractors in the U.S. is a true honor and one that we will strive to keep as we head into a renewable era as organizations across the USA adopt clean energy technologies,” said Henry Cortes, CEO and Founder of Core Development Group.
