On May 9th, 2019, it was announced that America has achieved over two million commercial and residential solar installations powering more than twelve million American homes.

According to the Solar Energy Industries Association, this milestone comes just three years after the industry completed its one millionth installation, a feat that took forty years to accomplish.

“The rapid growth in the solar industry has completely reshaped the energy conversation in this country,” said Abigail Ross Hopper, SEIA president and CEO. “This seventeen billion industry is on track to double again in five years, and we believe that the 2020s will be the decade that solar becomes the dominant new form of energy generation.”

As a leader in the solar space, Envirosolar Power has been a driving force in fast growth of clean energy solar installations. CEO Abe Issa has a vision for fifteen percent of America installing residential solar by 2015, calling it the “Solarize America” plan.

“The fact that two thirds of American voters want one hundred percent renewable energy by 2030 is more energy and momentum that drives the #SolarizeAmerica vision,” says Issa.

As founder and CEO of Envirosolar and Intelli Smart Homes, Abe Issa was recognized with multiple Stevie® Awards in the ENTREPRENEUR OF THE YEAR - ENERGY and TECH INNOVATOR OF THE YEAR – SERVICES award categories in The 17th Annual American Business Awards®today.

The Solar Industry Is One Of The Fastest Growing Job Markets In The U.S.

Rhone Resch, the president and CEO of the Solar Energy Industries Association (SEIA), says “Solar energy continues to be one of the fastest-growing industries in the United States.”

“We will keep leading this fight,” says Issa. “The fossil fuel industry is subsidized in America right now. But their time is coming to an end.” The IMF found that direct and indirect subsidies for coal, oil and gas in the U.S. reached $649 billion in 2015. Pentagon spending that same year was $599 billion.

“The great part is that renewable power just overtook coal for the first time in history,” says Issa. “We are the number one solar company in Texas, the number eight rooftop solar company in America, and the second fastest growing company according to Inc. Magazine. With over twenty billion Watts of solar added to the US gris and over thirty million kWh generated per year by our customer base, we are ready to add millions more installations across the US.”

About Envirosolar Power
Envirosolar is one of the nation’s top ten rooftop solar companies. Our goal is to see America switch fifteen percent of the electricity grid to solar by 2025, and our commitment is to create a tremendous amount of jobs and a cleaner environment while continually improving our customer satisfaction rating.

A Vision For A Sustainable America

It's not easy being on the front lines of sustainability in America. Throughout the last several years America has been battling itself politically and nationally with regards to sustainability initiatives.

During that time, a fight has emerged between solar companies and some electrical utilities. As CEO of Envirosolar, I have been at the forefront of these solar wars and wish to share with you the sustainability vision that Envirosolar lives by to help America achieve energy sustainability while providing value to homeowners.

A new report has just been released by Energy Innovation, a clean energy advocacy and research organization showing it would be cheaper to build local wind and solar projects than continuing to operate 74 percent of U.S. coal plants. It's no wonder utility trade groups describe rooftop solar as a "disruptive challenge" that threatens revenues and profits as electric utilities continue to raise prices and customers defect to solar. My reputation and company brand have come under attack as Envirosolar scales and continues to develop solar.

Certainly, through my business journey I have learned valuable lessons. Early iterations of home efficiency combinations didn't fully meet expectations for every customer, and these prior businesses paid the price to make good for those shortcomings. It was a business lesson to be learned.

Now, with Envirosolar we are at the top of the solar and smart-home business as we expand the company across the entire US. We have recently launched a new look of the brand, along with substantial customer service upgrades and support systems to ensure we can quickly and efficiently service each and every customer from the beginning of their solar journey throughout their entire ownership of the system. New technology continues to be invested in by Envirosolar to positively enhance the customer experience.

The “Solarize America” vision is to see America’s electric grid become fifteen percent solar powered by 2025. I encourage you to visit Abe Issa or Envirosolar's websites to support in this important mission. Thank you.

Power To Keep The Good Times Going: How Envirosolar is “Leading The Charge” to #SolarizeAmerica

Envirosolar Power SXSW.jpg

Recently, hundreds of thousands of students around the world protested climate inaction by taking part in a Global Climate Strike. Since the sun can be counted on to generate energy every day, present generations should look to the solar industry for jobs and inspiration. It’s the older generations of Americans who own homes, and they are the ones who can boost America’s deeply-needed solar transformation.

The “Solarize America” vision of Envirosolar Power is to see America’s electric grid become fifteen percent solar powered by 2025.

Why fifteen?

Currently, just about two percent of America’s electric grid is solar powered. We need to do better as a country. Fifteen percent solar is the point when utilities will need to upgrade power lines across America to handle the influx of energy from the sun.

Between now and then, the youth of today should look to the solar industry as one positive way to address climate inaction. Whether pursuing careers in sales, installations, customer service, or a variety of exciting opportunities, solar is a proven technology to achieve sustainability and real climate action goals. Even Leonardo Dicaprio’s Twitter background features solar panels.

At Envirosolar, we are excited to spread this vision and this past weekend we helped attendees at SXSW keep their mobile phones charged and full of power to keep the good times going. Often people at community events don’t have a back up battery pack or a place to plug into, so the Envirosolar team jumped into action to build a mobile solar powered phone charging station.

SXSW attracts around 150,000 visitors to Austin per year and without a phone, many of them couldn’t call a Lyft or transportation back to their lodging. Others were out of contact with friends and needed their phones charged to get back in communication. 

While standing around waiting for their phones to charge, Envirosolar representatives chatted about photovoltaic (PV) panel solar power, answering questions and engaging in sustainability and renewable energy awareness conversations.

Topics that people appreciate learning about are Renewable energy, Photovoltaic and Residential Incentive programs, and discussing how to actually achieve sustainability.

In the end, it’s a whole lot of fun to get out in the community as leaders in the solar space. We can get used to leading this kind of charge.
