Colorado’s largest community solar developer and national solar provider, Pivot Energy, has announced major company growth results during 2020 while the solar industry experienced uncertainty and slowing. The company’s growth is highlighted by a 34% increase in staff and a 180% increase in installed solar capacity this year.
In 2020, Pivot Energy hired 13 new positions, including the addition of essential new staff to its leadership and executive teams, and the promotion of key staff members internally. The company completed 116 solar projects across six states, totaling 64 megawatts of commercial and community solar capacity — nearly tripling the installed capacity from the previous year. Pivot also expanded into the Mid-Atlantic market, with plans to continue development nationwide in 2021.
SunCentral, Pivot’s proprietary community solar software also experienced significant growth thanks to industry demand for new and innovative software solutions. The community solar management platform increased the amount of solar capacity it manages by 55%, exceeding growth expectations for the year.
“Our growth and success are without question attributed to the passionate and dedicated team we have that works tirelessly towards achieving a cleaner energy future,” said Tom Hunt, CEO of Pivot Energy. “Despite the obstacles the solar industry has faced this year, demand remains high for more clean energy and we are confident that our growth will continue well into 2021.”
The company will continue its growth plans in both the commercial and community solar sectors, expanding into additional new markets in 2021, and continuing the pursuit of its important mission to accelerate the rapid transition taking place in the energy industry to a more decentralized and cleaner approach to power generation.
