CleanChoice Energy Named as One of America's 500 Fastest Growing Companies

  • Aug 16, 2017

WASHINGTON, D.C., Aug. 16, 2017 — CleanChoice Energy, a retail renewable energy company providing 100% clean electricity to customers across the country, has been named to the Inc. 5000 as one of the 500 fastest growing private companies in America. CleanChoice Energy ranked number 367 overall growing more than ten-fold over the past three years—well above the overall rate of economic growth. The Inc. 5000 list represents a unique look at the most successful companies within the American economy’s most dynamic segment— its independent small and midsized businesses. Companies such as Microsoft, Dell, Domino’s Pizza, Pandora, Timberland, LinkedIn, Yelp, Zillow, and many other well-known names gained their first national exposure as honorees of the Inc. 5000.  

“We’re incredibly proud that CleanChoice Energy is one of the fastest growing companies in America. It shows that Americans want clean energy. If you provide people with simple, clean energy options they will make the clean choice,” said Tom Matzzie, Founder and CEO of CleanChoice Energy. “This is just the beginning of our growth. In just the last few months, CleanChoice has launched a new service for small businesses and introduced a 100% solar option.”  

The 2017 Inc. 5000, unveiled online at and with the top 500 companies featured in the September issue of Inc. (available on newsstands August 16) is the most competitive crop in the list’s history. The average company on the list achieved a mind-boggling three-year average growth of 481%. The Inc. 5000’s aggregate revenue is $206 billion, and the companies on the list collectively generated 619,500 jobs over the past three years.  

"The Inc. 5000 is the most persuasive evidence I know that the American Dream is still alive,” says Inc. President and Editor-In-Chief Eric Schurenberg. “The founders and CEOs of the Inc. 5000 tell us they think determination, risk taking, and vision were the keys to their success, and I believe them.”  

CleanChoice Energy has grown quickly since its customer-facing launch in 2013 to become one of the largest direct-to-consumer renewable retail energy providers in the United States, servicing eight states and the District of Columbia through campaign-based micro-targeting. The more than one billion kWh provided to CleanChoice Energy customers has avoided more than 700,000 metric tons of carbon dioxide emissions.
