PV Squared makes Top 500 solar contractors list

GREENFIELD — PV Squared was listed among other 500 top solar contractors and developers across the country in Solar Power World, a leading publication covering solar technology and development.

Published in print and online, Solar Power World published its annual list in July.

A worker-owned cooperative, PV Squared has provided renewable energy solutions to a range of clients, including business owners, commercial property owners, farmers, and homeowners since 2002.

“It’s an honor to represent western Massachusetts as a locally-owned business on this list of top solar companies, and to be among a total of 19 companies located in the Commonwealth. We’ve put our hearts into our work for the past 15 years, so to be recognized in this way by a national publication is deeply rewarding,” says PV Squared General Manager Stacy Metzger.
