SAN MATEO, Calif. — SolarCity will host an all-day hiring event on Wednesday, October 21 with the aim of adding 500 employees to its sales force across ten states.
SolarCity, which provides more than one out of every three new solar power systems in the U.S., provides local solar sales, installation and service from more than 80 facilities.
The company employs more than 14,000 in the U.S. and had been adding more than 500 new employees per month in 2015, on average.
The new hires will help it meet growing demand for solar in the Northeast, the Mid-Atlantic and California–among the fastest growing solar markets in the country.
SolarCity® (NASDAQ: SCTY) provides clean energy. The company has disrupted the century-old energy industry by providing renewable electricity directly to homeowners, businesses and government organizations for less than they spend on utility bills. SolarCity gives customers control of their energy costs to protect them from rising rates. The company makes solar energy easy by taking care of everything from design and permitting to monitoring and maintenance.
The last two solar energy companies hiring so many people that fast went bankrupt. Is SolarCity the third?
@Ablazev: Not likely. Solarcity is probably trying to choke the US residential solar market with a sales army that will preach its presence. It may be a smart move, but then again your point might just have some truth to it.
