Top Commercial Solar Contractor Florida

Advanced Green Technologies Ranks as a Top Commercial Solar Contractor in Florida for the tenth consecutive year; #45 in the nation

Advanced Green Technologies was named the Top Commercial Solar Contractor ranking in the State of Florida for the tenth consecutive year, and 114th solar contractor in the nation by Solar Power World for 2021, the solar industry’s leading media resource.

See 2021 Top Solar Contractor Ranking

The top solar contractors’ list was created by Solar Power World 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 in 2021and is compiled based on the total kilowatts installed for each of the company’s customers.

With more than 14 Megawatts installed in 2020, AGT leads the industry as the highest-volume commercial solar EPC in the State of Florida and 45th in the nation. To achieve this ranking, AGT completed many prominent projects last year, including a 2-Megawatt solar roof for Verizon in Lake Mary and the second-largest solar roof at the time of completion, 1.6 MW, in Doral, Florida for Costex Corporation.

“We believe the Top Contractors list brings AGT a sense of pride to our team and visibility to our potential customers.,” said AGT Vice President Clint Sockman, “Today we are building for Fortune 100’s alongside small business owners and the pipeline is as full as ever.”

Utility and Fuel Price Increasing for Businesses in Florida

The demand for solar installations in Florida is strong, especially following recent rate increase announcements from utility providers starting in 2022. According to recent announcements, small and medium-sized business customers would see annual rate increases of 3.9% to 4.4% between 2021 and 2025, which equate to over 18% during this time period. Large commercial and industrial customers with more complex rate structures should contact their account managers for information about their rate adjustments.  With the 4% fuel increase we have already seen in May, combined, these increases could well exceed over 30% in total. One of the best ways businesses can offset some or all of their electricity use is by investing in solar, and there’s no better time than the present.

The Solar Investment Tax Credit Can Help Provide a Great Return on Investment

The solar investment tax credit (ITC), which was scheduled to drop from 26% to 22% this year, will remain at 26% for two more years. This means that all solar projects that begin construction this year and next will be eligible to receive the 26% tax credit. The credit will drop to 22% in 2023 for all market segments, including commercial and residential, then down to 10% permanently for the commercial and utility markets in 2024.

2020 Top Solar Contractor of the Year

Advanced Green Technologies Named Florida’s Top Commercial Solar Contractor for 9th Year in a Row by Solar Power World

Advanced Green Technologies (AGT), is honored to be recognized by Solar Power World magazine as the top commercial solar EPC company in Florida and ranked 153 out of 407 solar panel installation contractors in the nation on the magazine’s recently-released 2020 Top Solar Contractors list.

With more than 5.842 megawatts installed in 2019 and more than 250 megawatts installed to date, AGT leads the commercial solar EPC category in the State of Florida with the number one spot for the ninth year in a row. The recognition follows a number of large-scale solar panel installation projects AGT completed in 2019 including a 1.4 MW Solar Carport at United Therapeutics in Jacksonville, 24 solar roofs at the Beacon Hill Apartment Complex in Orlando, and 1 MW solar roof at JJ Taylor Distribution Center in Fort Myers.

In 2020, AGT is working hard to complete several high-profile solar panel installation projects including a 1.6-megawatt solar roof consisting of 4,022 panels the new headquarters for COSTEX Tractor Parts in Miami, Florida. The system can provide an annual savings of more than $200,000 per year. Another project highlight includes the installation of a 60-foot long solar canopy shade structure at the Concours Club in Miami to protect its luxury cars from the sun while producing 428,386 kilowatts of energy annually (the equivalent of powering 35 average U.S. homes for one year).

AGT continues to grow its presence in the state of Florida, recently acquiring a 32,000-square-foot office and warehouse in the Tampa Bay area that allows it to grow solar panel installation capabilities. The new facility will help support growth, adding new high in-demand jobs. The company established a Tampa presence in 2015, buying roofing contractor Roth Bros. of Florida. Since then, the contractor has added more than 40 jobs, bringing the area’s staff to over 70 roofing and solar employees.

The Top Solar Contractors list is developed by Solar Power World to recognize the work completed by solar contractors across the United States. Produced annually, the Top Solar Contractors list celebrates the achievements of U.S. solar developers, subcontractors and installers within the utility, commercial and residential markets, and ranks contractors by kilowatts installed in the previous year. The 2020 list was released on July 21.

Solar is critical to Florida’s future and AGT is committed not only to working hard to install more solar panels in the state, but also to be a leader in advocating for initiatives that stabilize our industry.”

Also, the bill includes language to allow project owners who start construction before the end of 2021 to be allowed a larger credit following the completion of their project, as long as it’s in service before the end of 2023.

AGT Recognized as the Top Commercial Solar Contractor in Florida for 2016

Top-Commercial-Solar-Contractor-Florida-2016

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.

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.
