Blue Raven Solar is quite the sun goddess. It was our No. 1 Fastest-Growing Company last year, and in five years of business, it has removed the equivalent of 250,000 cars off the road for a year and built enough systems to save its customer base $350 million in electricity costs. What’s more, it is backed by Peterson Partners, which is the same private equity group that backed JetBlue, Vivint, FranklinCovey and EnergySolutions.
