TORRANCE, CA -- (Marketwire) -- 11/21/12 -- Verengo Solar today announced that it has been named to the Los Angeles Business Journal's List of 100 Fastest-Growing Private Companies. The list recognizes companies with year-over-year revenue growth and a significant positive impact on Southern California's economy.
This is Verengo Solar's first inclusion on this list, although Verengo also ranked #2 on the Los Angeles Business Journal's "Big Movers" list, which further ranks the fastest-growing companies with at least $50 million in 2011 revenue. Verengo is the only solar installation company to make that list.
"Ken and I couldn't be more pleased with this recognition by the Los Angeles Business Journal, as it validates the hard work of the Verengo Team and the trust of our customers," said CEO and Co-Founder Randy Bishop while attending the 2012 LABJ Honorees Dinner in Beverly Hills last week.
"The residential solar business has never been stronger than it is now in California," added Bishop. "During the most recent quarter, a record 11,000 Californians signed up to install over 66MW of solar power for their homes. These results are an indication of what the future holds for solar energy in California and what solar energy can mean to the entire US economy with lower panel costs, affordable financing options, and an innovative and motivated solar work force committed to a clean energy future."
Verengo Solar was founded in 2008 and is the largest residential solar installer in Southern California with strong ties to the community. Last weekend President and Co-Founder Ken Button led a group of Verengo volunteers to take part in the GRID Alternatives 3rd Annual Los Angeles Solarthon in the Willowbrook area of South Central Los Angeles where 10 low-income families received industry-sponsored home solar systems.
"Since partnering with GRID Alternatives earlier this year, Verengo has had the honor of sharing its residential solar installation expertise with deserving families across California -- including homes in the Bay Area, San Joaquin Valley, Riverside and today here in Los Angeles -- right up the freeway from our company headquarters," Button said at the Solarthon event.
