Elmira-based Company included on Solar Power World Top Solar Contractors List
ELMIRA HEIGHTS, NEW YORK – July 24, 2019 – John Mills Electric, a full-service electrical contracting company, headquartered in Elmira Heights, New York announced today that it has been recognized by Solar Power World magazine for its solar installation efforts. The magazine has published its list of 2019 Top Solar Contractors and ranked John Mills Electric number 93 of 415 companies.
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.
"John Mills Electric and our subsidiary, Twin Tier Solar continue to thrive and grow in the solar space," said Lindsay Mills, president of John Mills Electric. "Solar has been great for the local economy. Our customers benefit from lower electric bills, and as everyone knows, renewable energy is better for us all."
