For the Fourth Consecutive Year, RER Energy Group is Ranked in the Inc. 5000 Fastest Growing Companies; Advancing to #681 for 2018
Reading, Pennsylvania – RER Energy Group (RER) has steadily risen in the rankings over four consecutive years of making the Inc. 5000 list, this year attaining #681 in the list with a growth rate of 738%. In addition, RER crossed into the Top 20 Inc. 5000 Energy Companies for the first time.
According to Jim Kurtz, President of RER, “We have experienced significant growth over the last few years because solar simply makes sense economically, and we try do a good job of both explaining how solar savings work, and collaborating with our clients to ensure they capture as much of these savings as they can.”
Kurtz continued, “In addition, RER has the financial acumen to take projects that may be stalled for some reason in their development, and offer unique financial and partnering options that enable these projects to get back on track to a successful completion.” A culture of transparency and education has also led to RER being recognized as the Top Solar Developer in their home state of Pennsylvania for the fourth consecutive year.
“Once our clients experience the savings from solar, and appreciate the low maintenance of this investment, they often come back to do more, telling others about the effectiveness and ongoing energy saving. In fact, nearly 50% of our projects over the last few years have come from previous clients who installed solar with us a few years back, have since recognized its value to their bottom line, and chose to increase their solar footprint,” Kurtz elaborated.
According to Loretta Ottinger, an RER Senior Solar Consultant, “So far in 2018, we have seen substantial interest from organizations who understand that the 30% tax credit (also known as the Investment Tax Credit-ITC) on solar systems will be reduced if their project installation is not started in 2019. As it takes time to properly design, finance and permit a large solar array, smart organizations are making sure they start this process in 2018.”
Recent notable accomplishments for RER include completing a third project for Boscov’s Department Stores, our first project in AZ, obtaining financing and building a particularly challenging “stranded project” in CT for a public school district, and remaining the #1 ranked solar developer in Pennsylvania by Solar Power World magazine.
“As a company working in the new energy economy, we have witnessed significant growth within our industry first hand and are thrilled that it is leading to tangible benefits for our clients in the business, agricultural, municipality and non-profits communities.” Kurtz said. “We’re incredibly excited for the future so we may help many more organizations save significantly on their energy costs by using fuel provided by the sun.”
