For the second year in a row, Solar Optimum has come in as the #1 Solar & Battery Storage Installer in California on Solar Power World’s 2021 Top Solar Contractors list*. The industry veteran also placed #2 among commercial solar contractors in California – an award they have now received for three consecutive years.
Every year, Solar Power World, a leading solar publication in the US, publishes their Top Solar Contractors list, which includes solar contractors and developers across the country – and this year, the publication can celebrate its 10th anniversary for the prestigious list. With hundreds of solar panel companies competing (residential and commercial installers), being awarded first and second place is an accomplishment worth celebrating for Solar Optimum.
“We are extremely proud to once again be ranked in the top among not only solar installers and developers in California but storage installers as well,” said Rainier de Ocampo, VP of marketing at Solar Optimum. We have nearly 14 years of experience designing and installing battery storage and solar panels for homes and businesses, and every day, we strive to be better than the day before – so we never take it for granted, when our efforts are recognized,” he concludes.
Trusting Your Solar Panel Investment With The Best in The Industry
Buying solar panels and solar battery storage is a big decision – one that shouldn’t be trusted with just anyone. In a fast-growing industry like the solar industry, it can be hard to know which company to turn to for the best results. This is where guides such as Solar Power World’s Top Solar Contractors list come in handy for those who are planning on buying either commercial or residential solar panels and energy storage. In addition to looking at the annual ranking of solar and battery installers, doing additional independent research is wise.
“At Solar Optimum, we always encourage anyone who is looking for a solar or home battery installer to look up the companies they are considering on platforms like Yelp, Better Business Bureau – and Solar Power World,” said de Ocampo. “It is the best way to objectively determine who is the best, most trustworthy company in the industry, and therefore the best choice for the homeowner,” he concludes.
Are Solar Panels Worth It?
Renewable energy is becoming more and more popular with solar homes being built at rapid speed, but there are still some homeowners who are unsure whether the transition to solar power is a good idea for them. In most cases, solar power is a smart investment that can save the homeowner money and help them become less dependent on utility companies. In fact, there are several reasons why going solar is a good idea – especially in combination with battery storage. However, it is crucial to only do business with reputable solar companies with the highest level of certifications and warranty programs.
