ReVision Energy Named 2020 Greenest Contractor, Ranks #1 in New England for Rooftop Solar Greenest Contractor


Because we think its critically important to make the same change within that we strive for in our communities, ReVision Energy is committed to eliminating its carbon footprint by 2025. To date we have installed solar on our facilities, along with electric vehicle charging stations, heat pumps and battery storage. Our employee-owners drive a mix of electric cars, Priuses and trucks that run on biodiesel.

In recognition of our efforts thus far to eliminate fossil fuels from our business operations, and our environmentally-friendly approach to as many aspects of our work as possible, ReVision Energy is grateful to be named the 2020 Greenest Contractor by Solar Power World magazine !

Co-founder Phil Coupe shared:

After 250 years of fossil fuel wealth accumulation in the trillions of dollars, the renewable energy industry finds itself fighting an unrelenting campaign of disinformation and policy attacks as the dominant status quo uses its colossal financial and political resources to try and stop the clean energy transition.

This is why it is such an honor, and so important, for ReVision Energy to be recognized by Solar Power World as one of the Greenest Contractors in our industry. Solar Power World's accolades and support provide our company with the type of professional validation that we need to fight back against shadowy anti-renewable energy groups like the New England Ratepayers Association and their scurrilous attempts to dismantle solar net metering - the single most important financial incentive driving solar investments during the past 20 years. Thank you, Solar Power World, for helping all of us fight the good fight in the renewable energy industry.

We are incredibly proud of our hard-working, mission-driven team, and, of course, YOU, our friends, customers, and supporters in our mission to move the Northeast away from fossil fuel energy sources and onto the clean energy economy of the future.

More than 13,000 Megawatts of solar power were installed last year in the United States, and ReVision Energy has been recognized by Solar Power World magazine for its contributions to the industry, as well.

We have moved steadily up the national rankings since first appearing in 2011, this year achieving the rank of #15 among all residential solar installers, #14 among rooftop solar installers, and emerged as #1 among rooftop solar installers serving Maine, New Hampshire, Massachusetts, and Vermont .

In Massachusetts, New Hampshire, Maine, and Vermont, ReVision ranks as the #1 residential solar + battery storage installer , as well as one of the top solar + storage installers in the nation.

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 21st.

"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 Top Solar Contractors class is facing obstacles unseen in this industry before. The first quarter of 2020 was the country's largest ever, with 3.6 GW of new solar capacity added. But COVID-19 will show its impact before the year's end. Wood Mackenzie is forecasting the residential and non-residential markets will decrease 25% and 38%, respectively, in year-over-year installation volumes this year.

"Throughout the data gathering process for the 2020 Top Solar Contractors list, we talked to many companies reporting busier schedules than before the coronavirus epidemic," Misbrener said. "Coupled with an increased customer desire to add storage, we believe the installation market will continue to stay busy all year. Companies may be working remotely and a bit leaner, but the solar industry will push through."

ReVision Energy installed 22.7 megawatts of solar power in 2019, and has installed over 76.5 megawatts of solar since our founding. ReVision started as two guys in a garage, and now has over 250 employee-owners working out of 5 locations across Maine, New Hampshire, and Massachusetts.
