National solar developer Greenskies Renewable Energy was recognized by Solar Power World magazine for its year-over-year growth among national solar contractors.

Greenskies, located at 180 Johnson St., was ranked the No. 1 largest commercial solar developer based on cumulative megawatts installed on the magazine’s 2019 Top Solar Contractors list, according to a press release.

The solar projects developed by Greenskies are owned and operated by the Clean Focus group of companies, which own over 235 MW of solar projects. Regionally, Solar Power World recognized Greenskies as a top 10 contractor in eight states — Connecticut, Massachusetts, Maine, New Hampshire, New York, Colorado, Nevada and California, the release said.

“Greenskies, as part of Clean Focus group of companies, has grown to be an industry leader because we offer a unique value proposition for our clients,” Stanley Chin, president and CEO of Greenskies and Clean Focus group, said in a prepared statement.

“Beyond originating and developing each project, we also own and operate projects for the long-term. Greenskies clients work with a single contact from beginning to end across their entire solar portfolio. We do not ‘flip’ projects and disappear. This key differentiator helps build our sales pipeline as potential clients see us as a long-term partner that will deliver savings and ensure the solar portfolio operates at peak performance,” Chin added.

The list is developed by Solar Power World to recognize the work completed by solar contractors across the United States. Produced annually, the 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, the company said.

“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,” Kelly Pickerel, editor in chief of Solar Power World, said in the statement.

Greenskies operates over 385 solar projects across 19 states.
