What is the Solar Panel Installation Industry?

Firms in this industry install solar panels as part of general residential and commercial contracting services.

Installations of commercial-grade solar power grids are excluded from this report (see Commercial Solar Grid Construction), as are solar thermal systems that lack photovoltaic panels.
