Key Solar Recognized as a Top Solar Contractor in Massachusetts


The Solar Power World Top Solar Contractors' list includes
Holliston-based solar firm

Solar, LLC
, the fastest growing commercial installer and
developer in New England, announced today that they have been recognized
by Solar Power World Magazine for its contributions to the
industry, especially in Massachusetts. Key Solar ranked 6th
on the Top Solar Contractors in Massachusetts and 122 out of 450 in the
United States.

The Top
Solar Contractors list
is developed annually by Solar Power World
to recognize the work completed by solar contractors across the United
States. The Top Solar Contractors list celebrates the achievements of
U.S. solar developers, subcontractors and installers within the utility,
commercial and residential markets, and ranks contractors by kilowatts
installed in the previous year.

"Solar Power World is very excited about the 2018 class of
Top Solar Contractors," said Kelly Pickerel, Editor in Chief of Solar
Power World
. "Our 2017 list showed impressive installation numbers
after 2016's huge rush to meet ITC requirements, and many companies were
hesitant to show unavoidable installation dips after last year's high.
We're happy to feature a strong group of thriving U.S. solar installers,
including Key Solar, on the 2018 Top Solar Contractors list. These
companies truly are at the top of their markets."

"Key Solar is honored to be part of the 2018 Top Solar Contractors
list," said Kevin Price, Managing Partner and Co-Founder of Key Solar.
"The solar industry continues to outpace other sources of energy, and
we're proud to be a part of this growth. Every day we show building and
business owners that the return on investment (ROI) in solar is greater
than most other investments. We look forward to the continued industry
growth and being part of it."

The U.S. solar market had its biggest year ever in 2016, installing more
than 15,000 MW. Although installations in 2017 dropped to 10,608 MW, the
total still represents 40% growth over 2015 numbers. The year-over-year
downturn can be attributed to the large influx of 2016 projects rushing
to meet the anticipated expiration of a 30% federal tax credit that was
eventually renewed. Last year also saw uncertainty surrounding potential
Section 201 tariffs on imported solar panels, which may have led to
delayed or canceled projects.
