Sunrun, a residential solar company, plans to hire more than 800 employees and build new operations centers or expand existing facilities across the country in Arizona, California, Colorado, Nevada, Hawaii, New York and New Jersey by the end of 2014.
The company’s rapid expansion is being fueled by increasing consumer demand, with home solar installations already up 45% industry-wide last quarter over Q2 2013 and a yearly growth projection of nearly 50% – more than any other segment of the market, according to the Solar Energy Industries Association.
“Home solar installs have more than doubled in the last two years alone as Americans demand cleaner and more affordable energy like home solar,” says Lynn Jurich,CEO of Sunrun. “We continue to invest in the areas of our business that support high demand and high customer satisfaction, from Sunrun BrightPath, which ensures customized solar and fast installation to the quality assurance testing we perform on our hardware. Sunrun’s plans for continued expansion further reinforce our commitment to having the teams, operations and resources in place for long-term growth and providing a high quality customer experience.”
The range of positions to be filled is concentrated in sales and field operations, including field marketing associates, installers, electricians, site technicians, project and inspections coordinators, and branch coordinators.
