Vision Solar, one of the fastest growing residential solar energy companies in the United States, celebrated the opening of its new flagship facility in Blackwood with a ribbon-cutting ceremony this past weekend.
A full-service renewable energy company, Vision Solar sells, installs, and maintains residential solar powered electricity systems across New Jersey as well as in Pennsylvania, Arizona, Massachusetts, and Florida. Following more than $100M in sales revenues in 2020, Vision Solar expects revenues to grow to $150M in 2021 as it adds more than 600 jobs to its workforce, chiefly in New Jersey. The company is rapidly expanding, with offices to open in Connecticut, Arizona, Texas, and two additional locations in Florida in 2021, and in Puerto Rico in 2022.
“We are proud to be able to give back to people in our community by providing good green jobs for workers, and by helping homeowners establish a smaller carbon footprint and lessen their impact on the environment,” said Mike Eden, chief revenue officer and Blackwood native.
Vision Solar has provided opportunities for energy savings and a reduced carbon footprint to New Jersey customers since 2018. Growing at a projected rate of 168%, the company expects to add more than 1,000 green jobs to the region by the end of 2022.
“Our dedication to the community is underscored by the hundreds of high paying jobs that Vision Solar is set to create,” said Blackwood born and raised Jonathan Seibert, Vision Solar chief executive officer. “Many of these jobs will be based out of our Blackwood headquarters and provide our employees with an exciting new career path.”
The new facility, Vision Solar’s second in Blackwood, will serve as the company’s national headquarters, housing its executive offices as well as sales and training divisions. Washington Township Mayor Joann Gattinelli cut the ribbon of the company’s new headquarters.
“As the mayor of a town recognized at the Silver Level by Sustainable Jersey, I am proud to see former members of our community return to Washington Township and bring their green business and job opportunities with them,” said Joann Gattinelli, Washington Township Mayor. “Opening a business here, during these challenging times, speaks to the drive of Vision Solar’s leadership. We are excited for them and look forward to supporting their journey.”
