We are proud to announce that SEIA board member, Southern Current, has been named 2018’s fastest-growing large company in South Carolina by SC Biz News’ Roaring Twenties Awards!

Additionally, two more South Carolina-based SEIA members received recognition for their success in the fastest-growing small business category: Hannah Solar Government Services (#2) and Alder Energy Systems (#9).

The Roaring Twenties presentation is SC Biz News’ annual event where South Carolina’s top business leaders gather to celebrate the fastest-growing companies in the state, recognizing 20 large and 20 small companies that have achieved extraordinary business development.

Southern Current is a prominent solar energy developer creating solar energy infrastructure in 10 states. The company focuses on large-scale, commercial and residential solar development and deployment. It is a leader in the solar industry with over $450 million in investments and 500 megawatts of solar capacity installed to date. The company’s prolific growth allowed it to double its staff in the last year, growing to nearly 100 members.

“We are honored to be named the fastest growing company in South Carolina, a state with such a robust collection of organizations,” said Jon Downey, President and CEO of Southern Current. “As our team and our footprint grow across the country, we remain fully committed to our home state and helping make it an even better place to live and work.”

Hannah Solar Government Services, the second fastest-growing small business in the state, is a Service Disabled Veteran-Owned renewable energy company with core expertise in project development, design and engineering, construction, and operations and maintenance, headquartered in Charleston, S.C.

Alder Energy Systems provides alternative energy solutions to South Carolinians through design, installation and integration of residential, commercial and government solar systems. Alder ranked number nine in the fastest-growing small business category.

Awardees are determined by gross revenue and percentage growth, year over year. To qualify for the award, companies must have a physical presence in South Carolina and be a for-profit entity or a unique, non-governmental nonprofit organization.

SEIA sends a big congratulations to all of the winners!
