PetersenDean, a privately-held roofing and solar company, is expanding its corporate headquarters and has added 500 jobs in the past six months to meet a booming demand for residential and commercial solar installations.

With its expansion, the company plans to double its installations across all markets, which includes Arizona, California, Colorado, Florida, Nevada, Oklahoma and Texas, said Jim Petersen, the company’s founder.
“As the economy continues to recover and solar becomes more affordable, we have seen huge increases in demand across the board with both residential and commercial,” Petersen explained. “We estimate that roofing and solar manufacturing has grown about 400 percent from last year and is only going to grow more from here on, especially as the costs come down further and more and more municipalities change their energy policies to require solar.”
Specializing in new construction and retrofits, PetersenDean works with some of the nation’s largest builders and developers. Both of its residential solar and roofing business units for homebuilders have seen year-over-year growth.
