2015-TOP-SOLAR-CONTRACTOR-FLORIDA-ADVANCED-GREEN-TECHNOLOGIES

Ranked #1 in Florida for fourth consecutive year; 29th in the nation for commercial solar installations

Advanced Green Technologies (AGT) earns the Top Commercial Solar Contractor ranking in the State of Florida for the fourth consecutive year, and 29th in the nation by Solar Power World for 2015, the solar industry’s leading media resource.

The top solar contractors’ list was created by Solar Power World four years ago to offer the industry an inside look at how solar companies stack up against one another. Starting with only 100 contractors in 2011 the list has grown to 500 for 2015 and broken down into multiple categories including residential, commercial and utility markets.

With more than 43 Megawatts installed for 2014, AGT leads the industry as the highest-volume commercial solar contractor in the State of Florida and 29th in the nation. 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. Rankings are based solely on annual kilowatts installed.

“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.
