LOS ANGELES, CA June 24, 2015

American Solar Direct(ASD), a leading solar provider in the nation's hottest market for solar, was awarded Bronze in the Company of the Year - Energy category, at the 13th annual American Business "Stevie" Awards dinner.

American Solar Direct provides homeowners with solar design, permitting, installation, and maintenance services. Through its Solar Made Simple program, American Solar Direct provides residential customers the opportunity to generate their own clean, renewable power and to take more control of their electricity prices.

This is the second straight year that ASD has earned Company of the Year - Energy honors. Its significant growth since the company's inception in 2009 has led to American Solar Direct being recognized by Inc. Magazine as 17th Fastest Growing Private Company in America in 2014 and as the #1 fastest-growing private company in Los Angeles, California. ASD is also an official corporate sponsor of Homes for Our Troops, a nonprofit organization that builds specially adapted, mortgage-free homes nationwide for severely injured Veterans from Iraq and Afghanistan. American Solar Direct has installed solar systems for free at the homes of injured vets in Southern California. Recently, ASD also teamed up with Mosaic to provide customers a home solar loan option, among other consumer-friendly solar offerings.

"This award recognizes American Solar Direct's continued innovation, sustained growth and overall leadership in the residential solar market," said Brennan Mulcahy, Chief Executive Officer. "We'd once again like to congratulate our highly dedicated team members at America Solar Direct for providing superior customer service, for leading advancements at our company and for making solar affordable and accessible for homeowners."

American Solar Direct is a popular choice because it offers customers a complete, turn-key set of services - from providing custom design, affordable financing and lease options and dedicated account management, to management of permitting, maintenance and service, and having highly trained, licensed installers on staff.

The American Business Awards are the nation's premier business awards program. All organizations operating in the United States are eligible to submit nominations - public and private, for-profit and non-profit, large and small.

American Solar Direct was selected for this award through a multi-stage judging process by specialized judging committees comprised of business professionals nationwide. Hundreds of submissions were examined during preliminary judging in April and May, resulting in a short list of finalists that competed for Gold Stevie Award placements during a final round of judging toward the end of May.
