Solar Advisor – Sales Associate

Job Description

Are you inspired to make a difference and intrigued by innovative ways to replace fossil fuels and carbon emissions with squeaky clean renewable energy? Does the idea of being surrounded by an energized team of passionate people committed to the rapid expansion of solar in Vermont and New Hampshire get you jazzed? Solaflect Energy is in an exciting period of rapid growth and may well be where you belong.

Founded over a decade ago, Solaflect designs, manufactures and sells its innovative solar Tracker that follows the sun all day. Why? Simple math – because pointing directly at the sun all day means each solar panel mounted on a Tracker delivers 40% more solar energy than the same panel sitting on a roof. Serving Vermont, New Hampshire, and NW Massachusetts, Solaflect is committed to hiring exceptional, self-motivated team members and providing them with all the tools they need to be successful ambassadors for solar energy and Solaflect.

We are growing our sales team and are excited to find a full or part-time Solar Advisor.

  • Bring passion and great energy to the process of building great customer relationships
  • Conduct on-site visits with prospects introduced by an SDR

  • Assess solar installation feasibility
  • Customize and deliver sales proposals and contracts
