Verengo Solar Is New Monthly Leader in California Residential Sales, Installations and Job Growth

Verengo Passes Solar City as #1 Residential Solar Company; Co-Founders Cite Lower Costs and Zero-Down Leasing as Reasons for Rapid Growth Among Middle Income Homeowners

TORRANCE, CA--(Marketwire - Dec 20, 2011) - Verengo Solar today announced that it has become the leading residential solar company in California, the nation's largest solar market. Data released last week by the California Solar Initiative (CSI) shows Verengo is the state's leader in both total installations and total sales for November.

"At Verengo we are changing the way America thinks about solar," said Verengo President and Co-Founder Ken Button. "As a leader and innovator in providing affordable and accessible solar power for homeowners, we are proud to be ranked first by the CSI in both sales and installs and will work hard to continue this trend. In the last year we have been expanding throughout California, opened our first east coast division in New Jersey, and hired over 300 employees."

"Verengo has grown exponentially in 2011," said Verengo CEO and Co-Founder Randy Bishop. "With the substantial drop in prices brought on by lower panel costs, recent technological advances and increased financing options, home solar is now affordable to many Californians. More and more homeowners are going solar because they understand with today's financing options they no longer have to make a large upfront investment and can start saving money on lower utility rates immediately."

"Ken and I are thankful for the opportunity to be part of an industry which produces clean, cost efficient energy, makes America more energy independent and creates new jobs for the communities we work in," Bishop added.
