SOUTH PORTLAND — After becoming a certified B Corp in 2015 and 100% employee-owned in 2017, ReVision Energy has been recognized by Solar Power World magazine as the No. 1 Solar Contractor in Maine and New Hampshire on the 2021 Top Solar Contractors list. It was ranked No. 11 for Residential Solar Contractors nationwide, and No. 10 for Rooftop Solar Contractors nationwide.

The Top Solar Contractors list is developed each year by Solar Power World, an online and print resource for news and information regarding solar installation, development and technology, to honor the work of solar installers in the U.S. 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. B Lab is a nonprofit network created to transform the global economy

“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, even during pandemic precautions. The federal government passed a two-year extension on the solar investment tax credit at the end of 2020.

ReVision Energy employs 300 workers who installed 28.7 megawatts of solar power in 2020. “We are trying to create the business model of the future that is good for people and good for the planet while sharing the success with the employee-owners who are driving the financial results,” said ReVision Energy co-founder Phil Coupe.
