CityBeat released its annual Best of San Diego issue this week, and homegrown solar installation firm Sullivan Solar Power is pleased to have been voted the Best Solar Company of 2018. Holding rank alongside San Diego favorites such as Torrey Pines Golf Course and Fashion Valley Mall further emphasizes the weight of this tremendous honor.
Best of San Diego winners are nominated and voted for by CityBeat readers and San Diego residents, making this award all the more meaningful. This year, over 200,000 votes were cast by readers to determine the winners.
Sullivan Solar Power was founded 15 years ago by San Diego native, Daniel Sullivan, who had a vision to change the way the world generates electricity and reduce our reliance on imported fossil fuels. Sullivan undertook this mission with only $2,500 in the bank and an old set of tools while living out of a client’s garage. Sullivan Solar Power has since grown into a cornerstone San Diego business with more than 100 employees and 70 million watts of solar power installed, from local residential homes to Petco Park and the Naval Facilities Engineering Command. Evolving from those humble beginnings to where the company is today is in no way lost on the passionate solar energy professionals at Sullivan Solar Power.
“For nearly 15 years we’ve created solar advocates and fought for solar rights to fundamentally change the way we generate electricity,” said Sullivan. “It’s an honor that Sullivan Solar Power is recognized as the Best Solar Store of 2018 by CityBeat readers and the community that we work so hard to serve.”
Representatives from Sullivan Solar Power were in attendance to accept the award at A Night at the Besties on Thursday, October 18th, where they celebrated with the rest of the best aboard the Inspiration Hornblower on the San Diego Bay.
