The Solar Project Manager role
The Solar Project Manager will work with solar contractors around the country to lead RE-volv’s solar project installations, and will play a supportive role in sales, asset management, and operations and maintenance. The best candidate will have a record of success in managing solar project installations and ongoing operations, as well as the ability to learn quickly and creatively problem solve. They will have exemplary quantitative and analytical skills, possess a high attention to detail, exhibit excellent communication skills, and bring a positive attitude to the team. They will also always have an eye out for streamlining existing processes.
RE-volv is a nonprofit social enterprise focused on fighting climate change by accelerating the adoption of clean energy in local communities. RE-volv empowers people to bring clean energy to their communities by providing the upfront costs of installing solar energy systems for local nonprofits. Through an innovative solar financing model, these nonprofits immediately save on their electricity costs, while their monthly solar payments contribute to a revolving fund, which helps to pay for the next nonprofit’s solar system – a first-of-its-kind pay-it-forward model for solar energy.
RE-volv has received numerous awards, including a Business Innovation Award from the U.S. Department of Energy’s Sunshot Initiative, is an inaugural member of the White House National Community Solar Partnership, and winner of the OpenIDEO Climate Innovation Fellowship.
RE-volv is at an exciting moment in the life of the organization. With 30 nonprofit solar projects financed in 10 states, RE-volv has proven that our model works, that there’s an enormous demand for our services, and that the opportunity to scale is massive.
Your role as the Solar Project Manager will be to coordinate successful installations of solar projects across the country, assist in monitoring and maintaining those systems over time while maintaining relationships with those customers, and support the team in meeting quarterly deployment goals.
This is a full time position which will be in our San Francisco office in the Financial District, once sheltering-in-place has ended. This is a high impact position, requiring creativity, independence, collaboration and initiative. Compensation includes an annual salary commensurate with experience, healthcare and retirement benefits, and generous paid time off. RE-volv also provides the last Friday of every month off for personal care, which we call RE-charge Days. RE-volv allows flexible work hours and is committed to supporting a good work-life balance.
By choosing to work at RE-volv, you know that your efforts everyday are not just helping promote solar, but helping myriad nonprofits lower their electric bill, so they can be more successful in serving their communities around the country. Position starts as soon as possible.
