Wall, New Jersey – September 16, 2014 – NRG Home Solar, one of the country's leading residential solar companies, announced they have been honored with a series of awards showcasing its significant growth and strategic vision.

NRG Home Solar received a Gold Stevie® Award for Company of the Year in energy at the 12th Annual American Business Awards and two Home Depot Service Provider Awards for "Best Sales Performance" and "Best Store Connectivity."

"We are excited to be recognized by both the American Business Awards and The Home Depot among many impressive companies that were nominated this year," said Kelcy Pegler, Jr. of NRG Home Solar. "These awards are not only testament to the hard work of the NRG Home Solar team, but also evidence of the growth and progress of residential solar throughout the country."

Stevie Award winners were selected by more than 240 executives worldwide who participated in the judging process this year. More than 3,300 nominations from organizations of all sizes and in virtually every industry were submitted this year for consideration in a wide range of categories.

"It's an honor for us to recognize and celebrate such an outstanding class of organizations and individuals," said Michael Gallagher, president and founder of the Stevie Awards. "The judges were especially discerning this year. All of this year's Gold, Silver and Bronze Stevie winners should be proud that the judges recognized their achievements and their ability to express those achievements in a way that captured the judges' hearts and imaginations."

The Home Depot Service Provider Awards recognizes companies affiliated with Home Depot that provide exceptional services and products to consumers that exceed expectations in sales, service and program execution.

"As we continue to see this exponential growth in a rapidly changing industry, our partnership with Home Depot has been a key part of making residential solar increasingly accessible to home owners. These awards recognize this success," added Pegler Jr.

NRG Home Solar has brought residential solar kiosks to nearly 300 Home Depot stores through Roof Diagnostics Solar, a company NRG acquired earlier this year. This successful collaboration between NRG Home Solar and The Home Depot has enabled the company to expand its base and offer more and more home owners affordable solar solutions.
