Michigan Solar Solutions Featured on 2020 Top Solar Contractors List

2020-tsc-logo-770-368x238COMMERCE, MICHIGAN, JULY 22, 2020—Although the COVID-19 pandemic is the immediate crisis unfolding at the moment, mitigating climate change is also an urgent issue. Solar PV installation is one way to help reduce greenhouse gases from fossil fuels. Solar Power World has recognized the efforts of solar contractors across the United States in its 2020 Top Solar Contractors list, where local solar installer Michigan Solar Solutions ranked 111 in Solar Rooftop Contractors and achieved a rank of 272 out of 407 companies overall.

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.

"The Solar Power World team is so pleased to highlight more than 400 companies on the 2020 Top Solar Contractors list, especially during this unprecedented time," said Kelsey Misbrener, senior editor of Solar Power World. "All contractors featured on the 2020 list reported strong 2019 installation numbers and are continuing to stand tall this year."

This year’s collection of over 400 Top Solar Contractors is facing obstacles that this industry has never seen before. The first quarter of 2020 was the country’s biggest ever, with 3.6 GW of new solar capacity added. But COVID-19 impacts showed their force in Q2, and Wood Mackenzie is forecasting residential and non-residential markets will see 25% and 38% decreases in year-over-year installation volumes this year. Michigan Solar Solutions (MSS) transformed its business practice to employ remote consultation to help limit the effects of COVID-19 on employees, their families and customers.

In addition to persevering through this turbulent time in history, the 2020 class of Top Solar Contractors is continuing to innovate by adding energy storage to their offerings. Over one-third of this year’s contractors are also featured on the exclusive 2020 Top Solar + Storage Installers list. MSS has invested heavily in education, tools and inventory to maximize on the influx of business in the energy storage market.  

Michigan Solar Solutions employs 36 workers who installed 1,615 kW of solar power in 2019. Since its founding in 2007, the company has installed 4,840 kW of solar. The company designs, sells, installs and services solar electric generators.
