SAN LUIS OBISPO, Calif. — REC Solar, a leader in solar electric system design and installation, announced that it has installed 10,000 residential solar systems nationwide. Since the company’s founding in 1997, REC Solar said it has installed more than 160 megawatts of residential, commercial, and utility-scale solar power, with 50 megawatts coming online in the past year alone.

“Ten thousand residential solar installations is an impressive milestone and reflects the success of our core values and strategic vision,” said Paul Winnowski, CEO at Mainstream Energy Corp., REC Solar’s parent company. “Our strong tradition of implementing innovative strategies to consistently exceed customer expectations is powering our business forward into a period of unparalleled growth.”

REC Solar recently expanded its national reach by entering key emerging residential markets, including New York and Hawaii, while growing operations in existing markets, including California’s Inland Empire region. Additional growth factors include channel partnerships with large national retailers, increased availability of new financing models, focus on reducing soft costs, and strong customer reviews and word of mouth. REC Solar received the Angie’s List Super Service Award earlier this year.
