    Careers in Solar Energy

    Stellar Solar is doing our part to encourage a more sustainable future for our planet. Many of our employees are excited to participate in the clean energy revolution while providing a more economical source of power for our customers. 

    It’s great to see our customers save massive amounts of money on their energy and gasoline bills. When you work with a company such as Stellar Solar, you can be assured that you’re working on a positive mission that has real-world outcomes. 

    How? Working in solar means that local homeowners will finally no longer rely on the utility company and not face rising bills year after year. Further, with more people using solar, utilizing a home battery, and electric cars, we will have less local pollution and less stress on the grid during peak times. Everyone can benefit: more jobs, a stronger grid, and less local pollution. 

    It’s important to feel proud of your profession. With a career in solar energy, you can rest assured that you are helping to deliver solutions to our planet’s largest challenges. This includes energy security, climate change, and pollution. 

    At Stellar Solar, our employees always feel like they are part of a team. We want our people to feel appreciated, valued, and worthy. Our culture is also that of hard work! We’re not a company where lazy people come and have a chill time. 

    We work together to lead America’s energy revolution. We can change the world while also making a great living doing it. All at Stellar Solar. Right now, the solar industry is thriving - we need good people who want to make a difference and meet rising industry demand with us.

    Currently, as awareness surrounding solar energy grows, the industry is becoming more and more desirable to work in. Skills that you learn in the solar sector can also be transferable: many of our employees come from a wide range of backgrounds and skill sets.

    Many people don’t realize that battery installation and servicing are now a large part of business in the solar industry. Our slogan is ‘Electrify Your Life’ for a reason. Currently we offer a variety of battery choices to suit the needs of our customers. These include the Tesla PowerWall, LG Chem, and Enphase batteries. 

    All of these can all help offset Time-Of-Use charges, and protect homeowners from rolling blackouts that SDGE is now implementing year round. This is huge for our customers and we’re happy to provide this service to them. But we need more staff to make this a reality for normal citizens across the country. 

    We frequently hire folks for a wide range of field and office based positions from electricians, to installers, battery installation technicians, service coordinators, and many more. If you would like to view a full list of solar jobs in San Diego you can view our careers page on the website.
