Inc. Magazine once again named Washington, D.C. – based Sol Systems on its annual Inc. 500 list of the nation’s fastest-growing private companies. This year, the solar finance firm ranked No. 6 in the nation’s top solar companies, No. 6 in fasting growing companies in D.C., No. 17 in energy, and No. 446 overall.
“This remarkable growth is rooted in the strength of the solar asset class and collaboration with exceptional strategic partners,” said Yuri Horwitz, CEO and founder of Sol Systems. “It’s also a testament to the extraordinarily hard work and ingenuity of the Sol Systems team,” he added.
Sol Systems grew by 1,072.6% between 2011 and 2013, and the number of employees increased threefold. This is the second consecutive year that Inc. Magazine named Sol Systems to the list; the solar financing firm ranked number 91 in the country last year.
Since 2008, Sol Systems has evolved to become a full-service financing firm for the solar industry, specializing in placing investor capital into distributed generation solar projects. To date, the company has facilitated financing for approximately 145 MW of solar energy projects across the United States, enough to power approximately 16,500 homes and take over 25,000 cars off the road. Project sizes range from 227 kW to 20 MW in size. In 2014 alone, the firm will finance nearly 100 MW of secure, sustainable solar assets.
