Company Description

In 2007, Sunrun co-Founders Ed Fenster and Lynn Jurich set out to make home solar mainstream. Upfront cost was a huge barrier to home solar adoption, so they invented the model now known as "solar service." Sunrun allows homeowners to pay for solar power, not the panels. This means Sunrun owns, maintains, and monitors the system while homeowners pay for the electricity it produces.

Each business day, we install $2 million worth of solar and facilitate one solar installation every 10 minutes. Our company in addition to our network of more than 30 leading solar installers employs more than 3,000 people.

Sunrun is looking for highly motivated and talented inside sales pro's to join our rapidly-growing sales team as a solar sales consultant. The successful candidate will join the country's most successful solar service integration company and will value a team culture that encourages innovation and professional growth. This is an ideal position if you are looking to take your developed talent to the leader in renewable energy.

As a solar sales consultant, you will join a high-performing, fast-paced inside sales team. Our team rewards performance and constantly strives for improvement. You are responsible for explaining the benefits of solar and gaining customer's commitment to sign up for Sunrun’s solar power service.
