mtvSolar Ranked #1 Installer in West Virginia
mtvSolar Featured on 2019 Top Solar Contractors List
The Solar Power World Top Solar Contractors list includes Berkeley Springs-based solar firm
Berkeley Springs, WV – 07.23.2019 – 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 mtvSolar is happy to be contributing to the country’s energy mix. mtvSolar has been recognized by Solar Power World magazine for its installation efforts, achieving a rank of 248 out of 415 US solar companies on the magazine’s 2019 Top Solar Contractors list, and the rank of number 1 in West Virginia!
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.
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.
mtvSolar employs 25 workers who installed 1.685MW of solar power in 2018. Since its founding in 2009, the company has installed 8.8MW of solar. The company is an EPC contractor headquartered in Berkeley Springs, WV, serving the quad-state region of WV, VA, PA and MD. mtvSolar has over 10 years of experience installating solar photovoltaic systems ranging from small residential to megawatt commercial installations, with the primary focus of creating a better future for all, one solar panel at a time.
