Cape Fear Solar Systems Earns Industry Magazine Nod

By Staff Reports, posted Aug 9, 2022
For the tenth year in a row, Cape Fear Solar Systems has been named one of the top solar contractors in the United States by Solar Power World magazine, according to a news release.

Not only was Cape Fear Solar recognized, making the top 25 residential rooftop contractors in the state, but it was also ranked No. 1 in southeastern North Carolina, the release stated.

The Top Solar Contractors list is developed each year by Solar Power World to honor the work of solar installers in the United States, according to the release. Solar firms in the utility, commercial and residential markets are ranked by number of kilowatts installed in the previous year.

Companies are grouped and listed by specific service, markets and states.

“The utility-scale solar market, of course, puts up huge installation numbers each year, but the majority of workers in the industry are constructing projects in the commercial and residential markets, which continue to break records,” said Kelly Pickerel, editor in chief of Solar Power World, in the release. “Over 85% of the companies on the 2022 Top Solar Contractors list primarily work in the residential and commercial sectors, and they all reported closing out the last year in a positive light.”

“We owe a lot of our success to our wonderful customers,” said Cassandra Barba, director of marketing and communications for Cape Fear Solar Systems, in the release. “This award means a lot to us. Our team always strives to make going solar easy, fun, and affordable."

Cape Fear Solar Systems will be moving into a new warehouse this fall to increase local installation capacity.

“We choose to remain local because it allows us to provide our customers with better service, which aids to our reputation of being the number one solar company. We see a lot of out-of-town solar contractors coming into the area to test the market and then refuse to repair systems they installed,” said Robert Parker, COO of Cape Fear Solar Systems, in the release. “Since we remain local, we are always able to service our systems. Our solar installations come standard with a minimum 25-year warranty, and we employ all in-house staff, highly trained in their respective fields.”
