American Solar Direct, Los Angeles, California. (Solar Thermal Magazine) May 12, 2014
American Solar Direct (ASD) was named a finalist in the 2014 American Business Awards as company of the year in the energy sector, and for being among the fastest-growing companies with less than 2,500 employees.
The American Business Awards are the nation’s premier business awards program. All organizations operating in the United States are eligible to submit nominations – public and private, for-profit and non-profit, large and small.
The 12th annual American Business “Stevie” Awards will be presented at two awards events: the ABA’s traditional banquet on Friday, June 13 in Chicago and the new product & technology awards event on Friday, September 12 in San Francisco.
“On behalf of the employees of American Solar Direct, we are very pleased to be named a finalist in two categories in this prestigious national business awards program,” said Brennan Mulcahy, Chief Executive Officer.
Our continued strong growth is the result of our dedicated employees who provide superior customer service and help make solar affordable and easy for homeowners. American Solar Direct is growing because we continually deliver the products and services that customers seek and need.
American Solar Direct is a popular choice for residential solar because it offers a complete set of services – from providing affordable lease options, to having highly trained installers on staff, to long-term maintenance and service agreements, to managing the permit process and more. Demand for American Solar Direct installations over the years prompted the company a few years ago to expand operations throughout California, with offices from San Diego to the Bay Area. The company broke its internal record for number of installations in 2013.
American Solar Direct recently earned the service industry’s coveted Angie’s List™ Super Service Award, reflecting a superior year of service provided to members of the consumer review service in 2013. Considered a mark of consistently great customer service, this is the first year the company has been awarded by this esteemed organization.
Finalists for the American Business Awards were chosen by more than 130 business professionals nationwide during preliminary judging in April and May. More than 130 members of several specialized judging committees will determine Stevie Award placements from among the Finalists during final judging, to take place May 13-22.
