Monday marks another milestone on POWERHOME Solar’s growth chart, with the company adding Illinois as the ninth state in its company sales and installation footprint.

POWERHOME plans to hire up to 100 people in the coming months in the areas of sales, installation and administrative functions for its new office, located at 505 S. Tyler Rd., in St. Charles, Ill. — approximately one hour west of Chicago.

To begin building its Illinois workforce, POWERHOME will have open interviews for sales consultants in its St. Charles office on Thursday, Oct. 3 from 10 a.m.- 6 p.m. CT. Those interested can apply for jobs at: http://powerhome.com/solar-jobs, or they can send an email to Midwest regional manager Ian Fezzey at ifezzey@powerhome.com. Applications for installers will be taken in person throughout the week starting Sept. 30.

Illinois is the third Midwestern state POWERHOME has entered in 2019, joining Indiana and Missouri on that list. Those states join North Carolina, South Carolina, Michigan, Virginia, Ohio and western Pennsylvania as other territories manned by this fast-growing solar company.

Why Illinois makes sense for POWERHOME Solar

“Illinois ranks 34th in the U.S. in megawatts of solar installed, and POWERHOME aims on raising the state’s rank,” said Jayson Waller, CEO of POWERHOME Solar.

POWERHOME enters Illinois with considerable momentum as the final quarter of 2019 now visible through the windshield. In August, POWERHOME was ranked No. 100 on the Inc. 500 list of the fastest-growing private companies in America, marking the second time in three years that the company has made the top 100 on this prestigious list. On top of that, POWERHOME was ranked No. 6 nationally in July among residential rooftop solar installers in the U.S., up six spots from a year ago.
