For the third year in a row, Coarsegold-based Kuykendall Solar was named among the Unites States’ best solar contractors by Solar Power World magazine.

The magazine ranked Kuykendall Solar 76th out of 450 solar contractors across the country on their annual list. The “2018 Top Solar Contractors” list, which was released July 24, ranked companies by kilowatts installed in the previous year. Kuykendall Solar installed 18 megawatts in 2017.

“I am so grateful to our installers who always have quality and safety in mind, and who are up on these rooftops in record-breaking heat. Our people are our greatest asset and we owe our success to them,” said Liz Kuykendall, co-founder and owner of Kuykendall Solar.

The solar firm placed 24th in California.

“We’re happy to feature a strong group of thriving U.S. solar installers on the 2018 Top Solar Contractors list. These companies truly are at the top of their markets,”said Kelly Pickerel, editor in chief of Solar Power World.

As a solar contractor, the company installs solar panels for residential and commercial structures. The company was founded in 2010 and has installed 67 megawatts of solar power since then.

In total, there were over 10,000 megawatts worth of solar panels installed throughout the country.
