POWERHOME has been selling solar in South Carolina since 2016, but the company had been serving the area with its installation teams based in Concord, N.C. That soon will be changing, as POWERHOME is opening a new office in the Columbia, S.C., area, located at 2109 Landmark Drive in Cayce, S.C.
To expand its South Carolina workforce, POWERHOME plans to hire up to 100 people in the coming months in the areas of sales, installation and administrative functions. Walk-in interviews for sales representatives are planned for Friday, Sept. 13 from 9 a.m.-1 p.m. at the Cayce office, and first interviews for installers will take place throughout the week there starting in the afternoon on Sept. 9. Those interested should send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org, or they can apply for jobs at: http://powerhome.com/solar-jobs/.
POWERHOME designs, permits, sells, finances, installs, maintains and monitors solar energy systems and panels for residential and commercial applications. The company works with homeowners and businesses to create custom rooftop or ground-mounted solar systems that generate renewable energy, lower electric bills and reduce carbon footprints.
The U.S. Energy Information Administration notes that residential customers in South Carolina pay an average of nearly $141 a month on their power bill, in large part because many homes in the state use electricity to both cool and heat their homes. That average bill amount is third highest in the nation, behind only Hawaii and Alabama.
POWERHOME uses American-made panels from a manufacturer in Washington, and each of the panels generate about 36 kWh per month. A basic home installation will reduce grid energy consumption by an average of 60-80 percent, saving South Carolina customers an average of nearly $100 per month.
Currently, South Carolina ranks 17th in the U.S. in solar energy usage with its 780.7 megawatts of solar energy installed. In May, new legislation lifted the state’s cap on net metering, encouraging more consumers to consider investing in solar panels.
“South Carolina gets more than 5 peak hours of sunlight per day. This is more than enough light to generate electricity needed to power a home,” said POWERHOME CEO Jayson Waller. “Consumers are tired of spikes in utility bills and want alternatives to cheaper, cleaner energy. Installing solar panels costs roughly the same amount as a utility bill, but once the financing term ends, the energy is completely free.”
We are excited with this latest announcement, because it shows that POWERHOME is not yet done growing. If you want an exciting opportunity in a growing field, make sure to reach out to us! POWERHOME is ranked as the No. 6 residential rooftop solar installer in the nation by Solar Power World, and also was ranked No. 100 on the 2019 Inc. 5000 list of the fastest-growing private companies in America, the second time in three years we’ve made the top 100. There is nowhere for POWERHOME to go but up, and that’s what makes joining the company so exciting!
