RER Energy Group Ranked in Inc. 5000 List of Fastest Growing Private Companies for Third Year in a Row

Reading, Pennsylvania – Reading, Pennsylvania-based RER Energy Group (RER) announced it has reached #684 in the 2017 Inc. 5000 Fastest-Growing Companies ranking. RER is proud to be part of this list of distinguished companies, whose aggregate revenue total $200 billion, and who collectively created 640,000 jobs over the past three years.

RER first participated in the Inc. 5000 in 2015, breaking into the top 5000 at #4090. In 2016, the company surpassed the top 1000-mark reaching #804; and is again in the top 1000 in 2017. According to the Inc. 5000 publishers, fewer than 20% of all companies surveyed stay on this list for three consecutive years. RER views this as a testament to the growth of the solar industry and focused determination of companies like RER, which has been a part of the nation’s renewable energy transformation for nearly a decade.

According to Jim Kurtz, President of RER, “We enjoy collaborating with clients to find the best possible solar solution for their needs. From a comprehensive needs analysis, to strong engineering, design and project management work, to innovative financial solutions… RER’s turnkey services enable us to maximize the value of solar for our customers. This comprehensive approach and focus on solutions has earned us many repeat clients and a strong reputation in the industry.

“In addition, our strength in finding actionable solutions for projects that have become stranded in either financial, developmental, or technical issues, has made us a ‘go-to’ problem solver in the solar industry,” added Mr. Kurtz.

Recent notable accomplishments along the “stranded project” lines include completing six housing authority projects in Boston totaling over 2 MW, and another 1.5 MW project in Connecticut. RER is proud to have projects built or in development in more than a dozen states across the U.S., as well as a growing practice in Mexico. In addition, RER has achieved the #1 commercial solar developer ranking in Pennsylvania for the second year in a row, according to Solar Power World magazine.

“As a company working in the new energy economy, we have witnessed the growth in our industry first hand. We’re thrilled that this growth is leading to great jobs and tangible benefits for our clients in the business, agricultural, municipality, and non-profits communities,” Kurtz said. “We’re very excited for the future. We are realizing additional revenue and job growth this year and look forward to sharing the benefits of the fuel from the sun with many new clients to come.”
