Working in the Renewable Energy Field

One of the most enjoyable aspects of working in renewable energy is meeting many great people along the way. Whether they are curious, potential clients, community advocates, or competitors, those interested in solar are a unique – and growing – group of people who see the benefit of investing in a cleaner future.

Stewarding the Energy Revolution

Solar Photovoltaic (PV) technology is the fastest growing source of electricity generation worldwide. The solar industry has grown 33% annually in the US for the last ten years. And, through Washington’s Net-Metering Program, homeowners and businesses have used solar to save money, reduce emissions, and future-proof their homes. 

Our experienced solar installers have brought over 6 Megawatts of solar to homes throughout Washington. We need more workers to reach our goal of 4 Megawatts of solar installed in 2023.
