The Sunergy team will be celebrating our 10th year providing solar all over Washington State in July and we want to thank all of you for making us one of the State’s premier solar installation companies! Another big milestone is we’ll be the second Washington-based solar company to join the prestigious 1,000th solar installation club!
Sunergy Systems opened our doors back in 2005 and since then solar in Washington has grown from a sleepy industry of about 100 net-metered solar electric systems to the mainstream. In 2005, there were a dozen or so solar installation companies, employing a total of around 50 people. After a decade of growth and the inception of the WA solar incentive program, the State is now quickly approaching 8,000 systems!
According to The Solar Foundation’s 2014 State Solar Jobs report, Washington has 128 solar related businesses, employing over 2,400 jobs, and ranking Washington at 17th nationwide. The solar industry is one of the State’s fastest growing job creators representing 28th in the State’s employment ranking.
Howard Lamb, Founder of Sunergy Systems says “We are honored to have been a key leader in the State’s solar boom. During our first couple of years in business we’d celebrate at Hale’s Brewery every time we had a customer go solar with us! Now here we are in 2015 with our 1,000th system being scheduled for installation in just a couple of weeks, which coincides very well with our 10-year anniversary! The solar industry is such a rewarding industry to have meaningful careers in, the relationship between excited customers and passionate solar professionals is truly amazing to witness, you don’t see this kind of synergy in too many other industries! This is one of the main reasons why Sunergy became an employee-owned corporation back in 2012, so each one of our employees truly feels like they are solar!”
Sunergy has also been an active supporter of the local Sustainable community and in April we hosted the 1st Annual Ballard Earth Day Street Party, a sustainably-themed street party to benefit long-time partner Sustainable Ballard. Sustainable Ballard President, Jennifer Heins “We’re thrilled to be partnering with Sunergy Systems to celebrate sustainability in Ballard. Sunergy has been a long time supporter and organizing this party as a benefit for Sustainable Ballard just goes to show what great neighbors they are.”
One of the primary key’s to our success is making customer satisfaction our #1 priority! During the last year 30% of our installations have been referrals from people like you. Many of you have benefited from our SolarPass referral program which rewards you with $350 for everyone you refer to us that goes solar (3rd referrals and afterwards at $500 each). Over the last year Sunergy rewarded our SolarPass referrers with $17,500! A big thanks to all of you for spreading the solar news, giving a solid plug for Sunergy, and for helping your friends reap the benefit of the State’s lucrative solar incentives. And a huge thanks to our top three referrers:
- Mr. C. Yockey
- Mr. G. Austin
- Mr. S. Kuo
For every referee you send our way we’re sweetening the solar pot. If they schedule a site evaluation with us we’ll make an entry for each one of your referees into our SolarPass $500 drawing to be held on July 31st! If you win the $500 drawing and if one of your referees goes solar with us then another $350, this could be a total of $850. If you happen to be one of our top referrers like C. Yockey this would be $1,000. So spread the word and share this post on Facebook to reap your solar rewards!
