North Carolina is where it all started for POWERHOME in 2015, and it’s where our headquarters office still exists. We’re excited to be adding to our might in the Tar Heel State by opening an office in Raleigh to better serve homeowners and businesses in central and eastern North Carolina looking to utilize clean, green solar energy.
POWERHOME’s Raleigh office, located at 9208 Falls of Neuse Rd., Suite 120, is the company’s third location in the state, with POWERHOME’s headquarters and additional service office located in the Charlotte area. POWERHOME plans to hire up to 100 people in the coming months in the areas of energy consulting and installation for the Raleigh office. Those interested in applying for jobs in Raleigh should visit https://powerhome.com/solar-jobs, or send an email to email@example.com.
North Carolina is among the most active states in the nation for solar installations, ranking second for installed capacity, according to the Solar Energy Industries Association. POWERHOME has worked to build additional visibility in the state by forging partnerships with NC State Athletics and the Carolina Panthers. We’ve already installed solar panels for the Panthers, and we will be doing the same with NC State.
“Despite a massive disruption to the economy, consumer interest in solar continues,” said Jayson Waller, CEO of POWERHOME. “More than ever, consumers are becoming energy conscious and are looking for ways to gain energy independence and decrease their monthly expenses. We’re committed to helping those in our home state become energy independent and have the opportunity to own their power, instead of endlessly renting it from the utility companies.”
Why go solar? Why choose POWERHOME?
Over the past decade, the cost of installing solar panels has dropped by more than 70 percent due to lower equipment costs and various government tax incentives, including a federal solar tax credit of 26 percent on newly-installed solar systems through the end of 2020. In addition to saving on traditional energy costs, solar energy systems can add to home value, making them an attractive long-term investment.
POWERHOME also has operations in nine other states — Illinois, Indiana, Michigan, Missouri, Ohio, Pennsylvania, South Carolina, Tennessee and Virginia — and currently boasts more than 900 employees. It is ranked No. 100 on the 2019 Inc. 500 list of the fastest-growing private companies in America — the second time in three years that POWERHOME has made the top 100 of this prestigious list, and was recently named to Fast Company’s Most Innovative Companies list for 2020.
POWERHOME also has forged partnerships with five other high-profile sports entities to broadcast its clean energy messaging. The list includes the Cleveland Browns, Cleveland Indians, Detroit Lions, Indianapolis Colts and Pittsburgh Steelers.
