Local solar company fastest growing in the county, among top 50-percent in nation 

–Inc. magazine today revealed that A.M. Sun Solar is No. 2433 on its annual Inc. 5000 list, the number 1 solar energy company in San Luis Obispo County, and the #50 solar energy company in the nation. Only one in thirteen companies have made the list 4 times. The list represents a unique look at the most successful companies within the American economy’s most dynamic segment—its independent small businesses. Microsoft, Dell, Domino’s Pizza, Pandora, Timberland, LinkedIn, Yelp, Zillow, and many other well-known names gained their first national exposure as honorees on the Inc. 5000.

“Our customers and incredible team are the ones to thank for this success.” Said Cory Howe, CEO of A.M. Sun Solar. “We’re honored that our customers choose us for their solar energy system needs, and our team makes sure that process is outstanding from the first phone call to when we turn on their solar.”

Not only have the companies on the 2019 Inc. 5000 been very competitive within their markets, but the list shows staggering growth compared with prior lists. The 2019 Inc. 5000 achieved an astounding three-year average growth of 454 percent, and a median rate of 157 percent. The Inc. 5000’s aggregate revenue was $237.7 billion in 2018, accounting for 1,216,308 jobs over the past three years.

“The companies on this year’s Inc. 5000 have followed so many different paths to success,” says Inc. editor in chief James Ledbetter. “There’s no single course you can follow or investment you can take that will guarantee this kind of spectacular growth. But what they have in common is persistence and seizing opportunities.”

A.M. Sun Solar is a locally owned and operated solar installation company located in Paso Robles. They install solar energy systems for Central California homes, businesses, farms, and wineries. In 2016, 2017 and 2018 they were listed in the top 3 fastest growing companies on the Central Coast by INC 5000 and have the highest rating in customer satisfaction.
