TORRANCE, CA--(Marketwire - Feb 26, 2013) - Verengo Solar announced today that it has been named by The Green Job Bank as one of the Top 10 Green Employers of 2012. These employers are companies in multiple sectors of the Green Economy -- renewable energy, green automotive, green building, energy efficiency, smart grid, environmental, and sustainability, that have posted the most green jobs online in 2012.
"Coupled with top awards from Angie's List for customer service, from Inc. magazine for overall growth and for Solar Power World magazine for installation specialization, this Green Job Bank honor caps a wonderful year for the Verengo Solar team," said President and Co-Founder Ken Button.
"Recent studies and polls show 90% of Americans support the development and use of solar energy," said Verengo CEO and Co-Founder Randy Bishop. "With the introduction of zero down leasing and the falling cost of solar panels and installation over the past two years, we are seeing consumer acceptance of rooftop solar continue to grow with homeowners from all economic backgrounds."
"2012 was a great year for green jobs, with our search engine indexing over 100,000 green job posts," said Bernard Ferret, Founder and CEO of The Green Job Bank. "It was the best we have seen since launching three years ago, and it clearly demonstrates that the Green Economy expansion is real, and that the green market is doing very well."
The Green Job Bank has been ranked in the top 10 "major job-search websites" in an article on MSN Money in July 2012, and has been acknowledged as the leading green job website in the USA by the Washington Post in August 2012.
