Congratulations to A-C Electric Company’s Solar Division, which was recently recognized as the top solar company in Fresno by the Fresno Business Journal’s annual Book of Lists. In addition, out of the top 500 solar contractors in North America, A-C Electric Company earned the eighth ranking on the Solar Power World 2015 list of Top Commercial Solar Contractors. Said company executive David Morton: “We feel this is quite an achievement. Being able to draw on the resources and experience of a 70-year-old electrical construction company has allowed us to scale up to meet the market demands of our commercial, agricultural and non-profit customers while maintaining the quality and service they expect from a local company.”
