Maximo Solar Industries, a Puerto Rican solar energy company with connections to the Lake Nona area, was recently awarded first runner-up of Solar Power 2018 Most Forward-Thinking. This is an award given by Solar Power World (SPW), the leading online and print resource for news and information.
Founded in 2009, Maximo Solar Industries helps to create reliable renewable energy systems for residential, commercial and industrial facilities. They expanded to Florida in 2016 and have further plans to extend into the rest of the continental U.S.
In the aftermath of hurricane Maria, Maximo Solar helped to launch a variety of initiatives to help the island. This included the development and building of the first battery-operated renewable energy system for a radio station, Radio Casa Pueblo. The station is located in Adjuntas and serves as the first station in the entire western hemisphere to operate without the need for power from an electrical grid. Due to this fact, the people in Adjuntas and the surrounding areas were able to access live news reports and receive updates on the reconstruction efforts, even during electrical blackout periods.
Now, even a year into the recovery period from the devastation of hurricane Maria, Maximo Solar has also pioneered the construction of a solar community in the municipality of Ciales, the solar energization of two children social services organizations, five health clinics and a community aqueduct in the southwestern town of Añasco. The company continues to be a frontrunner for developing organizations and systems to help those in need and make the world a better place.
Maximo Solar Industries’ CEO Máximo Torres is proud of his company’s work not only in Puerto Rico but also Fort Lauderdale and Orlando. The company has also climbed to the number 35 position nationally as one of the best residential solar project contractors in the nation, according to Solar Power World, within 500 other companies in the United States and its territories.
“At Maximo Solar, we are very excited about important alliances that are emerging in Puerto Rico and that allow us to develop greater resilience for our island and achieve greater sustainability,” said Torres. “At the same time, having a Central Florida presence enables us to have a broader reach toward the continental U.S. and gives us a better edge when competing internationally.” Torres added, “Being recognized as one of Solar Power 2018 Most Forward-Thinking companies, only confirms our reason for being: to transform the lives of present and future generations through renewable energy.”
