Advanced Green Technologies Earns the Top Commercial Solar Contractor Ranking in Florida for the Fifth Consecutive Year–44th in the Nation

For the fifth year in a row, Advanced Green Technologies (AGT) earns the Top Commercial Solar Contractor ranking in the State of Florida, and 44th in the nation by Solar Power World magazine, the solar industry’s leading media resource. The Top 500 Solar Contractors List is developed by Solar Power World to recognize the work completed by solar contractors across the U.S. and Canada. The companies on the list are growing the economy, providing jobs and offering electricity consumers a choice about how they get their power. The list was released on July 26.

Solar energy is a renewable resource with great potential to significantly reduce our nation’s greenhouse gas emissions, according to the Solar Energy Industries Association, a national solar industry association. AGT is a sister company to Advanced Roofing Inc., one of the nation’s largest commercial re-roofing companies, and specializes in the design, procurement, and construction (EPC) of solar energy systems. The company employs 25 workers plus a large crew of contractors who installed nearly 48 megawatts of solar in 2015. Since its founding in 2007, the company has installed 222 megawatts of solar carports, ground mount, and rooftop solar.

AGT works amid a burgeoning business market. The U.S. solar market is expected to grow 119% this year, according to global research firm GTM Research. While a majority of solar electricity is produced at large, utility-scale solar power plants, the greatest number of solar jobs are located with companies like AGT—firms doing the work to bring clean energy to the public.

We’re excited for the continued growth of solar and are proud to be the Sunshine State’s top solar contractor, building sustainable projects that help businesses meet their bottom line while producing clean energy,” said AGT President Michael Kornahrens.

The Solar Power World recognition comes on the heels of another big honor for the company last month. ARI and AGT received First Place for Sustainability for the third year in a row for its work building the massive 2.25-megawatt solar carport at Lockheed Martin’s Clearwater campus at the 2016 Florida Roofing and Sheet Metal Contractors Association (FRSA) S.T.A.R. awards program.

This ranking is the fourth consecutive year that AGT has earned the top honor. Additionally,  the ranking marks an upward swing not only for the company but also for the Florida solar energy market as a whole, signifying demand for both rooftop and solar carport solutions.

“We’re proud to continue to be the top commercial solar contractor in the state, building sustainable projects that help organizations meet their bottom line while producing clean energy,” said AGT President Michael Kornahrens.  The projects we completed in 2014 demonstrates solar energy’s potential to improve sustainability for Florida’s private sector and is a shining example of our company’s decades of experience handling complex projects in all sectors,”

The Solar Power World ranking came on the heels of another big honor for the company in 2015.  AGT’s sister company, Advanced Roofing Inc. was recognized by the Florida Roofing and Sheet Metal Contractors Association with the First Place Award for Sustainability and the Best Overall Project of the Year Award for its roofing, waterproofing, and solar project scopes at the University of Miami Frost School of Music.

AGT wants to remind commercial building and business owners in Florida the most important financial incentive for installing solar energy systems, the 30% Federal Solar Tax Credit will be significantly reduced by the end of 2016.  Currently, you can subtract 30% of all solar energy system installation costs directly from your federal income tax payments, making for a quick return on investment.  After 2016, the cost of going solar will rise by at least 20%.  This increase can equal up to $1 Million in additional costs.  The proposal, due diligence, and corporate decision-making process for a solar project takes several months.  Now is the time to begin on the path toward energy independence, financial savings, and environmental sustainability.

AGT Earns Honorable Mention from Solar Builder Magazine

Advanced Green Technologies Solar Panel Installation for JM Family Enterprises Earns Honorable Mention from Solar Builder Magazine at Solar Power International in Las Vegas.

Advanced Green Technologies (AGT) is proud to announce that Solar Builder Magazine has named AGT as an Honorable Mention recipient of its 2nd annual Project of the Year awards. The announcement was made at the solar industries largest convention, Solar Power International in Las Vegas, October, 2014.

AGT was recognized for its outstanding craftsmanship installing a 150 kW roof-mounted solar array for JM Family Enterprises at their headquarters in Deerfield Beach, Florida.

The solar array was designed and installed by AGT while keeping in mind the area’s threat for high hurricane wind speeds. During the pre-construction phase, AGT’s design team discovered that a post-tension concrete slab was supporting the existing roof system. In order to maintain the structural integrity of the building while satisfying the wind uplift requirements, AGT’s design team revised all the attachment details and utilize fastener and sleeve imbeds specifically designed for use in post-tension applications.

“We are honored to be recognized by the industry for our dedication to building solar energy systems in high-wind zone areas like South Florida. We believe it is crucial to continue evolving and be trendsetters in the latest technologies and design strategies,” mentions Clint Sockman, VP Renewable Energy, Advanced Green Technologies.
