A Word From Our CEO (American Home Energy)
Updated: Apr 21, 2019
Our vision is that the solar industry will need a nationwide pure-play, white label EPC provider to allow for a healthy ecosystem of ALL solar companies--Manufacturers, O&M Providers, FinCos, Developers, Sales Originators, Project Owners--in order to succeed. Enter: American Home Energy. We like to compare ourselves to a utility or an internet service provider of solar. From engineering to construction, and everything in between, we believe in providing the “boots on the ground.” Operational infrastructure is critical to enabling our partners’ success in the solar market place.
Over the last decade, we’ve seen many solar companies fail; but not due to lack of funding nor demand--In fact, with an average annual growth rate of 59% over the last 10 years, in 2018, a new solar project was installed in the U.S. every 100 seconds.
Just five years ago, the solar industry installed less than 5 GW of capacity annually. Fast forward to 2018, and the U.S. solar market has now more than doubled with over 11GW installed & more than 1.9 million solar installations in the U.S. These trends are set to accelerate in early 2019, as equipment prices have fallen to grid parity in most U.S. states, covering more than 80% of American households.
We imagine a future where solar will be the obvious choice of energy for all. We’ll actually be able to deliver this as soon as we are able to scale nationally and internationally to serve all relevant solar markets. Once this has been achieved, our addressable market is without competition and includes virtually the entire solar value chain.
Eventually, we can develop a critical mass of infrastructure to help combat climate change and create a sustainable environment for future generations by transitioning to solar energy. And that’s a vision we believe is worth fighting for.
