New Columbia Solar, a Washington-DC based solar energy company has received the SunPower “Commercial National Top Producer of the Year” award for its outstanding sales performance as a SunPower Master dealer in 2019.

The company is highly regarded as a developer, owner and operator of solar systems for commercial, multifamily, educational, and nonprofit property owners in D.C. Its CEO and Co-Founder, Mike Healy, has been a fervent leader in developing solar policy in DC and across the Mid-Atlantic region.

“It’s a great honor to be named SunPower’s 2019 ‘Commercial National Top Producer of the Year,’ recognizing the success we have had making solar more accessible by offering high quality, turn-key solar solutions to property owners in Washington, D.C.,” said Healy. “SunPower is an reliable partner that enables us to provide innovative, no upfront cost offerings to our customers, such as roof life extension and replacements, rental revenue for unused rooftops and parking-lots, and predictable electricity savings.,” he added. 

SunPower awarded New Columbia Solar during the company’s annual dealer conference for having the highest shipment volume the previous year, compared to other best-in-class partners across the United States.

“New Columbia Solar is a strong contributor within our national dealer network, providing localized sales, quality installations, and outstanding customer experiences, which aided in the company’s exceptional 2019 performance,” said Norm Taffe, SunPower executive vice president, North America. “We look forward to New Columbia Solar’s continued success as a SunPower dealer, helping more businesses realize the rewarding benefits of solar.”

Last year, New Columbia Solar procured up to 6 megawatts (MW) worth of SunPower panels for projects across the city. That’s enough energy to power over 1,000 homes annually and reduce the amount of coal burned by 2,700 tons annually. Additionally, New Columbia Solar and SunPower are currently developing a 1.2 MW parking garage solar canopy in ward 4 to provide renewable energy to over 200 District residents. This project is expected to start powering the community by fall 2020.
