STG Solar Receives National Ranking

Tuesday, July 26, 2022

Despite concerns over supply chain interruptions and tariff investigations, the U.S. solar industry saw record solar and energy storage demand in 2021. STG Solar can attest to this, having one of its busiest years yet. Solar Power World has recognized the company's installation success with a North Carolina ranking of no. 7 and a national ranking of no. 44 on the 2022 Top Solar Contractors list.


The Top Solar Contractors list is developed each year by industry magazine Solar Power World to honor the work of solar installers in the United States. Solar firms in the2022 TSC white border utility, commercial and residential markets are ranked by number of kilowatts installed in the previous year. Companies are grouped and listed by specific services, markets and states.

“The utility-scale solar market, of course, puts up huge installation numbers each year, but the majority of workers in the industry are constructing projects in the commercial and residential markets, which continue to break records,” said Kelly Pickerel, editor in chief of Solar Power World. “Over 85% of the companies on the 2022 Top Solar Contractors List primarily work in the residential and commercial sectors, and they all reported closing out the last year in a positive light.”

STG Solar employs over 200 workers who installed 84,000 kilowatts of solar power in 2021. Since its founding in 2015, the company has installed over 740 megawatts of solar power.

“It’s fun for me to go up against some really big, seasoned companies and be able to actually have bragging rights that we built over 700 MW,” President and CEO, Mike Kilpatrick said. “By golly we’re a bad, mean, solar machine”.
