|Clean Currents Named to Inc. Magazine's List of 500 Fastest Growing Companies in America|
Maryland Based Clean Energy Company Leads Retail Energy Companies in Rankings
(Rockville, MD – Aug. 26, 2011) – Maryland based Clean Currents earned the #196 ranking in Inc. Magazine’s annual list of the 500 and fastest-growing private companies in the United States. This ranking marks Clean Currents as the sixth fastest growing company in Maryland and Washington, DC and the fastest growing retail energy company in the nation.
The Inc. list of companies is ranked according to percentage revenue growth over a three-year period. To qualify, companies must have been founded and generating revenue by the first week of the starting calendar year, and therefore able to show three full calendar years of sales. Additionally, all listed companies have to be U.S.-based, privately held, and independent—not subsidiaries or divisions of other companies. From 2008 through 2010, Clean Currents experienced revenue growth of 1,548%.
“We are thrilled to have made Inc.’s annual list of the 500 fastest growing private companies in the nation,” said Charles Segerman, CEO and co-founder of Clean Currents. “This ranking is a reflection of the hard work of our employees and the innovation that Clean Currents brought to the retail electricity market in the Mid-Atlantic.”
Clean Currents President and co-founder, Gary Skulnik noted, “Our ranking in Inc.’s list is a testament to the ability of companies to achieve high growth while balancing shareholder interests with greater social and environmental interests.”
