American Solar Direct 23rd Fastest Growing Private Company in Los Angeles - LABJ

LOS ANGELES--()--American Solar Direct (ASD), a leading residential solar energy provider in California, is the 23rd fastest growing private company in the Los Angeles area based on revenue growth from 2011 to 2013, according to a list released today by the Los Angeles Business Journal.

This distinction follows a recent ranking by Inc. magazine that placed American Solar Direct as the fastest growing private company within the city of Los Angeles and the 17th fastest growing private company overall in the United States based on three year revenue growth between 2010 and 2013.

“Our commitment to innovation and focus on creating an unparalleled customer experience drive our mission to inspire the adoption of solar systems across America, one roof at a time. These are the reasons why we are a leading full-service solar provider in California,” said American Solar Direct President Kevin Bauer. “American Solar Direct is proud to be recognized by the Los Angeles Business Journal, as well as Inc. magazine, for our achievements.”

American Solar Direct provides a comprehensive end-to-end solution and streamlined customer experience – including custom designs, financing and long-term maintenance – for homeowners seeking the benefits of solar energy. The company’s significant growth in California is also attributable to the consultative approach that highly trained American Solar Direct team members take to educate customers about solar solutions that work best for their home and budget, Bauer said.

American Solar Direct is meeting the exploding consumer demand for residential solar installations in California. The U.S. experienced a 41 percent increase in photovoltaic (PV) installations in 2013, making solar the second largest source of new electricity generating capacity (behind natural gas), according to the Solar Energy Industries Association (SEIA). SEIA’s current projections forecast 2014 to be another record-breaking year, with California having the most installations.

Now in its 18th consecutive year, the Los Angeles Business Journal ranking honors private companies who exhibit the highest revenue growth. Between 2011 and 2013 American Solar Direct’s revenue growth was approximately 270 percent. During this period, ASD expanded its operations in California by opening multiple offices and operation centers throughout the state and by offering residential customers complete residential solar solutions.
