For The Second Consecutive Year Bakersfield Electrical Company Is Ranked The #8 Commercial Solar Contractor In North America

(July 28, 2016 – Bakersfield, Calif.) – A-C Electric Company has received a top ten ranking for the second year in a row. The #8 placement for Commercial Solar Contractor in North America was announced this week by Solar Power World (, a solar industry publication whose annual Top 500 Solar Contractors list is the industry’s gold standard.

“The companies on this year’s list exude solar-business brilliance, and they deserve to be recognized not only for being great companies but also for how their work positively impacts the environment,” said Kathie Zipp, managing editor of Solar Power World.

The U.S. solar market is expected to grow 119% this year, according to global research firm GTM Research. While a majority of solar electricity is produced at large, utility-scale solar power plants, the greatest number of solar jobs are created by companies like A-C Electric Company—firms doing the work to bring substantial financial savings and clean energy to the public.

“When we worked with PG&E to install the first grid connected solar power plant in California back in 1993, we caught a glimpse of what solar could do for the State. As a company, we could not be more proud to take those 20 years of experience and put it to use installing solar systems that power the schools, houses or worship, farms, and businesses in our communities” says, David Morton, VP, Operations at A-C Electric Company.
