Maryland Based Clean Energy Company Makes Inc’s Ranking for Second Year in a Row
(Silver Spring, MD – Aug. 21, 2012) – Maryland based Clean Currents announced today that it has earned a spot once again in the Inc. Magazine 500/5000 annual list of the fastest-growing private companies in the United States. This ranking marks Clean Currents as one of the fastest growing company in Maryland and Washington, DC.
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.
“Making the Inc. list two years in a row is a testament to our supporters, employees, customers, and other stakeholders, who each have played a critical role in keeping the company moving on a positive trajectory,” said Charles Segerman, CEO and co-founder of Clean Currents. “We look forward to continued rapid growth and expansion into new markets.”
Clean Currents is a retail electricity supplier that exclusively focuses on green electricity, mainly wind and solar power. It is the only energy supplier in the nation that is certified as a B-Corp., meaning its commitment to operating sustainably and in the public interest is baked into its corporate DNA.
Clean Currents President and co-founder, Gary Skulnik noted, “We continue to show that a company can grow profitably while maintaining a strong commitment to greater social and environmental interests.”
