StraightUp Solar is honored to be named one of the top solar contractors in the United States by Solar Power World magazine.
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. The list was released on July 25.
“The 2017 Top Solar Contractors list features 500 of the best solar contractors in the United States,” said Kelly Pickerel, managing editor of Solar Power World. “From solar hotbeds on the coasts to the up-and-coming Midwest solar market, every installer adding even the smallest solar array to the grid is making a positive impact on our communities. We’re proud to recognize these companies and their efforts to bring solar power to U.S. homes and businesses.”
Dr. Dane Glueck, President and Founder of StraightUp Solar, is a practicing orthopedic surgeon and was the first to achieve NABCEP solar installation professional certification in the entire state of Missouri. “As a father, a physician, and a concerned citizen, I am inspired by the growth of solar in our communities and our increased awareness of the benefits of solar energy – whether those benefits are environmental, economic, or energy security.”
In 2016, for the first time ever, solar was ranked nationally as the No. 1 source of new electric generating capacity additions brought online throughout the year. In 2016, 1 in 50 new jobs was in the solar industry. StraightUp Solar currently employs 40, including installation, design, electrical, project management, sales/marketing, and administrative positions, and looks forward to growing their workforce throughout the region.
StraightUp Solar is proud to be recognized by Solar Power World. We will continue inspiring a solar tribe to create a sustainable world in 2017 and beyond.
