SPG Solar Selected by AlwaysOn as a GoingGreen Silicon Valley Global 200 Winner
Company recognized for creating technology innovations in green technology
SPG Solar, a leading provider of commercial solar power products and services, today announced that it has been chosen by AlwaysOn as one of the GoingGreen Silicon Valley Global 200 winners. Inclusion in the GoingGreen Silicon Valley Global 200 signifies leadership amongst its peers and game-changing approaches and technologies that are likely to disrupt existing and entrenched players in green technology. SPG Solar was specially selected by the AlwaysOn editorial team and industry experts spanning the globe based on a set of five criteria: innovation, market potential, commercialization, stakeholder value, and media buzz.
“We’re thrilled and honored to have been selected as a GoingGreen Silicon Valley Global 200 winner,” said SPG Solar CEO Doug May. “We would like to thank the AlwaysOn selection committee for recognizing our ability to deliver the benefits of clean, renewable energy to commercial businesses of all sizes with our innovative All Weather SunSeeker® single-axis tracker.”
SPG Solar has installed close to 100MW of solar photovoltaic (PV) power systems nationwide. Its new All Weather SunSeeker single-axis tracker generates up to 25 percent more energy than fixed-tilt installations by directing panels to follow the trajectory of the sun through the course of the day for maximum sunlight exposure. Proven to reliably perform in all conditions and terrains, the SunSeeker tracker has a pre-assembled design that minimizes installation and material costs.
“This year’s GoingGoing Global 200 displays a maturity in the green technology industry that makes it very attractive to both investors and innovators. Greentech research is maturing rapidly, and as it couples with technology innovators and investors, companies are emerging that have the ability to change the way we live our lives for the better and bring huge returns to their founders and funders,” said Tony Perkins, founder and editor of AlwaysOn. “This year’s winners are pushing the bounds of how technology can bring about change in the war on our planet’s waning resources. The strength of these companies lies in their ability to nurture innovative ideas and seen them through to successful, sustainable, and profitable businesses.”
