It’s anniversary time. This month marks REC Solar’s 15th anniversary. It was November 1997 that Cal Poly graduates Judy Staley and Fred Sisson founded ‘Renewable Energy Concepts’ right here on California’s Central Coast.
From humble beginnings, we’ve grown from a single office to being a national leader in solar installation and distribution, with more than 8,700 residential and commercial solar electric systems (totaling 120 megawatts) now installed across the country. Together with sister company AEE Solar, we have more than 800 solar professionals on-the-job, delivered more than 1.1 million solar panels to customers in all 50 states, and built turnkey solar systems in sixteen states and Puerto Rico.
It’s been an exciting, dynamic fifteen years, and we’re not done yet. REC Solar has another 20 megawatts of solar (the equivalent of 4,000 home solar systems) under construction right now, and we’re working hard to make solar more affordable and accessible from Hawaii to Maine. Our goal – our vision – is to bring clean solar energy to the mainstream. Here’s to another fifteen great years of building our country’s clean energy future.
I would be remiss if I didn’t mention our 15th Anniversary promotion. Starting today, refer a friend or neighbor to REC Solar, and if they go solar with us before January 15th, you receive $1,000.00. This is our biggest and final referral promotion of 2012. Full details at ReferRECSolar.com.
