American Solar Direct Fifth Largest Purely Residential Solar Installer in U.S.: Solar Power World

LOS ANGELES--()--American Solar Direct (ASD), a leading solar energy provider, was the fifth largest installer among companies that serve only the residential market in the United States in 2012, according to a report compiled by Solar Power World magazine.

As a highly preferred, comprehensive solar solution for homeowners in California, American Solar Direct installed 3.96 megawatts of solar power on residential rooftops in 2012, making it one of the tops in that sector, according to statistics compiled by the magazine.

“American Solar Direct is experiencing remarkable growth in the nation’s primary market for residential solar,” said Geoff Atkins, Chief Marketing and Strategy Officer of American Solar Direct. “The fact that we were the fifth largest residential-only solar company while serving just one state represents clear evidence that our customer-focused, one-stop solution is the preferred choice for homeowners.”

"American Solar Direct has built its California business on excellent customer service and a commitment to bring affordable, reliable and clean energy solutions to homeowners. We are pleased to see ASD rank fifth among the pure residential solar companies and we welcome them to the elite company of Solar Power World's Top Solar Contractors," said Frank Andorka, editorial director of Solar Power World. "ASD’s commitment to making the adoption of solar easy for its customers is exactly what this industry needs. Many companies applied, and not all made the list. The team at American Solar Direct should be proud."

ASD has installed more than 10 megawatts since its founding in 2009 and is on track to eclipse its 2012 installed megawatts. ASD’s premier services allow residents to lock in a monthly rate through a 20-year lease that guards against utility rate increases as well as provides long-term system maintenance. ASD’s experienced team provides custom designs, superior installations and responsive customer service.

In addition to its attractive business model, ASD’s growth in 2012 also was the result of its expansion efforts the year before. ASD opened additional offices and operations centers in San Diego, Santa Clara and the San Gabriel Valley area of Los Angeles.
