OnForce Solar's Founder & CEO Named 2012 “Top Entrepreneur” by Crain's NY Business
New York, May 29, 2012 - OnForce Solar, Inc., New York City's largest solar energy design, installation and finance firm, providing high quality, efficient solar energy systems to businesses and homeowners in New York, New Jersey, Connecticut, Massachusetts and Maryland, today announced that its Chief Executive Officer, Charles Feit, has been named one of Crain's New York Business' "Top Entrepreneurs of 2012."
The awards ceremony will be held on Monday, June 18th from 8:00 to 10:00 a.m. at Sentry Centers in Grand Central.
"Since our founding in 2007, OnForce Solar has led the charge toward increasing the number of commercial properties and homes harnessing the power of solar and renewable energy technologies to save energy and expenses," says Feit, who notes that attractive state incentives, decreasing costs of solar modules and the continued adoption of renewables has made solar a compelling financial choice for many. He adds: "My dedicated staff is also a vital part of this honor; without them, OnForce would not be as successful as it is."
Among the criteria for selection was creativity and innovation. "OnForce has demonstrated these qualities consistently during the past five years, even during difficult market conditions," adds Elaine Pofeldt, a contributing editor at Crain's. "It's been a challenging period in the solar energy field, and under Feit's leadership, OnForce has thrived nonetheless."
A highlight of the awards breakfast will be a panel discussion featuring each of the 2012 honorees including: Laura Geller of Laura Geller Makeup Inc.; Matt Blumberg of Return Path; Clint White of WiT Media; Colin McCabe and Tony Shure of Chop't Creative Salad Co.; Chinedu Echeruo of HopStop; and Feit.
OnForce Solar's impressive growth was lauded in the 2010 Inc. magazine "Top 500," as well as the 2011 issue, where the firm was ranked the 42nd fastest growing company in the nation and fifth in the New York City area overall.
