Cupertino Electric Recognized as Top U.S. Solar Installation Company

SAN JOSE, Calif.–(BUSINESS WIRE)–#alternativeenergy–The U.S. solar industry is on the upswing, thanks to a pro-renewables presidential administration and increased concern over climate change. Cupertino Electric, Inc. (CEI) has had a front-row seat to this action, with business increasing over the last year. Solar Power World has recognized the company’s installation success by ranking CEI at No. 15 on the U.S. 2021 Top Solar Contractors list and at No. 10 among EPC-specific contractors.

The Top Solar Contractors list is developed each year by Solar Power World to honor the work of solar installers in the United States. Solar firms in the utility, commercial and residential markets are ranked by number of kilowatts installed in the previous year. Companies are grouped and listed by specific service, markets and states.

“Not even COVID-19 closures and slowdowns could prevent the solar industry from installing fantastic numbers last year,” said Kelly Pickerel, editor in chief of Solar Power World. “The Solar Power World team is so glad to recognize over 400 companies on the 2021 Top Solar Contractors list that not only survived a pandemic but thrived in spite of it.”

The U.S. solar industry grew 43% in 2020, with more solar panels installed on homes, businesses and across the country than in any other year on record. The federal government passed a two-year extension on the solar investment tax credit (ITC) at the end of 2020, which will further accelerate solar adoption. After 19.2 GW installed in 2020, research firm Wood Mackenzie expects the U.S. solar market to quadruple by 2030.
