Rochester, NY, July 25, 2023 — With the United States receiving significant federal support of solar and storage
in the Inflation Reduction Act, excitement for the technologies is growing at a record pace. Solar developers,
installers and contractors are capitalizing on the moment by building more substantial projects across the
country. Schuler-Haas Electric Corp. was recognized for its increased effort to expand the U.S. market by taking a
top spot on the 2023 Top Solar Contractors List, released today by Solar Power World.
The Top Solar Contractors List is developed each year by industry magazine Solar Power World to honor the
work of solar installers in the United States. Solar firms in the utility, commercial and residential markets are
ranked by the number of kilowatts they installed in the previous year. Companies are grouped and listed by
specific services, markets, and states. Schuler-Haas Electric Corp. is ranked No. 48 in the nation and 3 rd in New
York state for Solar Contractor. And #1 in New York state and #7 in the nation electrical installer.
“Renewable energy accounts for a quarter of U.S. electrical generation, now far exceeding electricity produced
by burning coal,” said Kelsey Misbrener, managing editor of Solar Power World. “Solar power is an important
member of that renewable makeup, and companies on the Top Solar Contractors List are all contributing to our
country’s shift to cleaner electricity. We are honored to recognize them each year for their necessary work
putting green kilowatts on roofs, over parking lots, in desert locations and across water reservoirs. Every project
is making a difference.”
The United States reported its strongest first-quarter ever in Q1 2023 for solar panels installed, and industry
analysts expect the solar market to triple in size over the next five years. The industry will stay busy, and
companies on the Top Solar Contractors List will be the ones with their boots on the ground — or roof. Schuler-
Haas Electric strives to be the number 1 choice in solar installation for electrical subcontractors. Our knowledge
and experienced crew lead us to be a preferred contractor in the State of New York.
