John Mills Electric Featured on 2021 Top Solar Contractors List Elmira-based Company included on Solar Power World Top Solar Contractors List
ELMIRA HEIGHTS, NEW YORK – July 20, 2021 – 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. This is the third year in a row that the company has received this honor. The magazine has published its list of 2021
Top Solar Contractors and ranked John Mills Electric number 90 of 426 companies. For just the state of New York, John Mills Electric was ranked number 10 of 51 companies. The Top Solar Contractors list is developed each year by Solar Power World to honor the work of solar installers big and small. 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 (developers, electrical subcontractors, EPCs, installation subcontractors, rooftop installers), 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, installing more solar panels on homes, businesses and across the country than any other year on record. The residential market saw an 11% increase, which is remarkable considering the difficulties of maneuvering home solar projects through pandemic precautions.
"Over the past year, John Mills Electric and our subsidiary, Twin Tier Solar installed over 23MW of solar in the Southern Tier, both as an electrical contractor for large community solar developers and on ‘turn-key’ projects," said Lindsay Mills, president of John Mills Electric. "Given the challenges of 2020, we feel blessed that we continued to grow our renewables business, and we are hopeful and optimistic that the impact of renewables-based revenue will play a major role in the economic recovery of the Southern Tier.”
