AUSTIN, TX & VISALIA, CA, OCT. 22, 2016 - CalCom Solar, a solar project developer and engineering procurement construction (EPC) firm, received the Inc. 500 Award. CalCom ranks third (3rd) on the 2016 Inc. 500 list of America's fastest growing privately-owned companies. The 35th annual Inc. 500 list also ranks CalCom Solar first among the fastest growing companies in the energy sector. The award was presented this past Friday by Inc. Magazine at their gala in Austin, Texas.

As a high-ranking Inc. 500 honoree, CalCom Solar shares a pedigree with companies such as Intuit, Zappos, Under Armor, Microsoft, GroPro, Patagonia, Timberland, Clif Bar, Oracle and other notable Inc. 500 alumni.

"We are thrilled to be ranked # 3 on this year's Inc. 500 list. In particular, we are honored to be in the same league as prior Inc. 500 honorees that are now leading U.S. companies," said CalCom Solar CEO Dylan Dupre. "I am excited about the Company's strategic direction and our commitment to delivering world class projects, technology and exceptional customer service. We've been profitable since our inception, and going forward our business model emphasizes a disciplined and balanced approach to growth and profitability."

The CalCom Solar team remains focused on bringing high quality technology and decades of professional expertise to make solar energy profitable. As a leading solar solutions provider, CalCom Solar takes enormous pride in consistently delivering optimal quality and maintaining excellent long-term customer relations, with many repeat and referral customers. Mr. Dupre added, "We're very proud to be deploying solar energy for the agricultural community; solar is a crucial resource that makes tremendous environmental and economic sense, enabling individuals and organizations to reduce costs and facilitate effective water and resource management - while improving their bottom line."

"The Inc. 5000 list honors real achievement by a founder or a team of them. No one makes the Inc. 5000 without building something great - usually from scratch. That's one of the hardest things to do in business, as every company founder knows. But without it, free enterprise fails," noted Inc. President and Editor-In-Chief Eric Schurenberg.

Easy monitoring with weather sensors from Lufft

Professional weather sensors form the heart of large solar plants supporting their operation and performance. Lufft was the first manufacturer to combine several sensors in one housing, bringing the largest multiparameter weather sensor family with 19 members into being. Many of them are well-suited for solar site assessment and continuous monitoring. The most commonly used one is the WS600 delivering data on temperature, air pressure, wind, relative humidity and precipitation. Through its open protocol, it can easily be attached to radiation sensors e.g. from Kipp&Zonen. Other models have an integrated Silicon, Second Class or Secondary Standard radiation sensor.
