Solar Power World, the industry’s leading business-to-business publication, announced the release of its 2016 Top 500 Solar Contractors list at the end of July. The Top Solar Contractors list is the most recognized annual listing of North America’s top solar contractors working in the utility, commercial and residential markets.

Companies are grouped and listed by specific service (construction firms, developers, electrical subcontractors, EPCs, rooftop contractors), markets (commercial, residential, utility) and states by 2015 installed capacity (in MWdc). CIR has proudly ranked 172, jumping 46 spots from last year. Currently, we are ranked 9th in New York State.

“Each year our company aims to grow more and more into the booming solar market. CIR has high aspirations for the renewable sector despite decreasing subsidies. With new Federal and State programs, solar will remain a part of our energy vision. Local job creation, coupled with decreased dependency on fossil fuels will be a major driver. Our hats go off to all of the other ‘Top 500 Solar Contractors’ on this list that have helped contribute to this prospering industry. We are both humbled and proud to be acknowledged on the most recognized list of solar companies in North America for a third year in a row,” said Ashley Regan, Director of Business Development.
