I recently received an email from a former student who is now employed by SolarCity. The following is the message I received. If you are interested in working in the solar field and have taken my course in solar energy or any other institution and are looking for work with a formidable company, let me know and I will forward your inquiry to Alex.
It is nice to hear from you! SolarCity is constantly hiring and they encourage us to give referrals. If any of your students or if you know of anyone who is interested in joining the solar field, put them in contact with me. In particular we are hiring for the deign position all over the country! Its a great opportunity with such an innovative company.
I am the Senior PV Design Engineering at one of our regional offices in Mililani, Hawaii. I design approximately 7 homes a day for solar. The sales and audit teams are upstream of the design team. The auditors collect all the information that I need to the electrical and structural design. It is all about team work here!
Hope all is well
