REC Solar Expanding in East Coast Market

July 11, 2011

SAN LUIS OBISPO, Calif. - REC Solar, a leading solar electric provider in the United States, announced that the company is growing in the East Coast market with major commercial and residential installations in New Jersey, Maryland, and Massachusetts.

According to the company, it is one of the fastest growing solar installers in the United States, topping the California Solar Initiative rankings as the state’s largest residential installer in 2010 for megawatts installed. Through its New Jersey office in Somerset, REC Solar services residential customers throughout the state and commercial customers in the Northeast, bringing its total number of offices to more than a dozen in six states.

“REC Solar’s goal has always been to bring solar into the mainstream, and our expertise in other states like Hawaii, California, Colorado, and Arizona guides our East Coast expansion,” said Angiolo Laviziano, CEO of REC Solar. “As solar continues to become cost competitive with traditional energy sources, commercial and residential consumers in new markets across the Northeast will benefit from our guidance.”

With an increased number of partnerships with leading consumer brands such as IKEA and Harris Tea, REC Solar said it is well positioned as the solar integrator of choice for consumer marketers. Paramus and Moorestown, N.J., and Stoughton, Mass., are the most recent sites to showcase large commercial solar installations developed by REC Solar. A ribbon-cutting event is scheduled at Harris Tea in July to celebrate the unveiling of its new system.

“This is an exciting time for the company as well as energy consumers in the Northeast,” said David Morosoli, VP and general manager of commercial for REC Solar. “We are glad to be a part of the rapid pace of solar adoption by educating customers about the affordability and lucrative returns that solar energy can deliver to their business.”
