Summit Energy, based in Mansfield, Mass., and one of the northeast’s larger solar installers, announced it had been honored to be in the top 25% of Inc. magazine’s 2023 ‘5000 List’ of the fastest growing privately held companies. 

Summit Energy said in an August 15 news release that the company has posted more than 500% growth over the last 4-years in a highly competitive solar market.

Founded in 2016 by Eric Israelsen and Dallin Maw, Summit Energy said it “…consistently delivers customer-centric full-service solar system design and engineering, permitting, installation, and ongoing service.” The company added that it continues to maintain an average of between 4.9-5 star reviews on multiple online platforms, including Google and the Better Business Bureau.

“We like to think of Summit Energy as a people company that happens to sell solar,” Israelsen, co-founder and chief empower officer, said. “It’s no surprise then that our strong growth can be attributed to the amazing customer experience we deliver at every step of the customer’s journey.”

Summit Energy’s service footprint extends throughout New England and parts of the New York Tri-State area, including Massachusetts, New Hampshire, Maine, Vermont, Connecticut, Rhode Island, and New York’s Westchester County; the company also has a presence in Utah. 

“Our mission, to empower people and elevate tomorrow, is more than a catchphrase, it means we are here to help each other and the world we live in,” said Dallin Maw, co-founder and chief elevate officer. “We’re very cognizant about what we can do to help customers get control of their power and utility bills which provides them with predictability and security while taking steps to help preserve the planet and reverse global warming; it’s something that we are deeply committed to and driven by.”

Contributing to Summit Energy’s growth this year, it said, was the addition of its own roofing division, Peak Roofing, to help serve the many homeowners looking to install solar but require a new roof first. 

Peak Roofing offers customers a 50-year warranty backed by CertainTeed, one of the industry’s premier roofing product manufacturers. The company proudly refers to its end product as “the first and last roof you’ll ever need.”
