Clean Solar Announces Record Growth Across the Board for 2013
San Jose, CA – March 20, 2014 – Silicon Valley-based Clean Solar, the 2nd largest residential solar installer in Northern California, has confirmed record growth for the 2013 year. The company has announced growth in many key areas, including an increase in rooftop solar installations, total annual kW installed, company workforce, and local charitable donations.
Randy Zechman, Clean Solar CEO/Co-Founder, is very optimistic, “This is an incredible growth industry, and we’re so happy to be a part of it.” Zechman says, “Clean Solar ‘hangs its hat’ on these very important dynamics. It’s these factors that have contributed to the company’s surge in growth for 2013. Clean Solar attributes this record growth to our customer service and quality standards. That places a strong emphasis on customer satisfaction and we are undoubtedly the highest-rated solar installer in California.”
In 2013, Clean Solar increased their residential solar installations in the Bay Area over 100%. To meet the needs of families and their growing electrical usage, the company also doubled the amount of kW installed. The company’s growth in installations parallels growth in the industry, as both usage rates and the residential demand for electricity continue to rise.
Clean Solar is also reporting record growth in workforce. To continue driving success, the company doubled their workforce in 2013. With the increase in kW to install, Clean Solar grew their installation team by 25%. As more homeowners begin to research solar, the company has also doubled their sales team. This employment growth was to meet their market demand and mirrors the trends the solar industry is following as it continues to employ.
The company announced a record year in charitable donations as well. Clean Solar views charitable contributions as a fundamental aspect of their business model and when homeowners partner with Clean Solar, the company donates $250 to a local charity. In 2013, the company focused on making a greater impact by allocating a significant amount of charitable donations to one local project, the Rotary Children’s Playground. This playground allows children regardless of abilities to play together side-by-side and is scheduled to open in 2014.
“We just wanted to do the ‘right thing’. Our original mission calls for us to give back. We wanted to follow through on that promise to our company,” commented Jeff Ritchey, Co-Founder. Clean Solar is also about to submit final paperwork towards being certified as a Benefits Corporation or a B Corp. This designation is for standards of social and environmental performance, accountability, and transparency, all byproducts of Clean Solar’s growth.
