The growth continues at POWERHOME SOLAR, as the company is adding sales and installation offices in Fort Wayne, Indiana! These offices come after the company entered the state in 2019 by opening an office in Indianapolis.
POWERHOME SOLAR plans to hire up to 100 employees in the coming weeks and months for warehouse, sales and installation positions. The company’s growth has been unprecedented, as the employee count currently sits at more than 1,600, double our count from a year ago. POWERHOME SOLAR wants to give its employees a career, not just another job, which is why the company takes pride in promoting from within and rewarding those who work hard with leadership positions.
Walk-in interviews for installers, warehouse personnel, electricians and CDL drivers will be held on Feb. 17-18 at the new installation office located in Decatur, at 2232 W. Patterson St. from 8 a.m.-4 p.m. No prior experience for installers is necessary, as POWERHOME SOLAR offers on-the-job training.
“Electricity prices continue to increase in Indiana,” said POWERHOME SOLAR CEO Jayson Waller. “Residents across the state are seeing how affordable solar is, and their hunger for renewable energy has led us to opening a second office to accommodate for our growing customer base. This also opens the door for more available jobs in the renewable energy market.”
The cost to install solar has decreased significantly in the past decade, with the catalysts being lower equipment costs and various government tax incentives. Congress recently renewed a federal solar tax credit of 26 percent on newly-installed solar systems through 2021 and 2022. Indiana also supports net metering, which allows consumers to sell their excess energy back to participating utility companies at retail rates.
