Momentum Solar, one of the fastest-growing private companies in the country, is doing its part to help preserve the environment and grow the renewable industry by installing solar on qualified homes and businesses. To assist in this initiative, Momentum is committed to actively hiring veterans that want to establish a meaningful career after leaving the service.
“It’s important for us at Momentum that we strive to hire veterans,” said COO John Carfagno. “We honor them and their service every day, so we show our appreciation by providing an opportunity to launch a career in a growing industry.”
Momentum Solar (http://momentumsolar.com) is one of many solar installation companies that has seen significant growth since the ITC (Solar Investment Tax Credit) was implemented in 2006. Solar is becoming more affordable, and Americans continue to support the idea of a greener future. Over 200,000 people are currently employed in solar and that number is expected to double by 2020.
“This is an exciting industry and we’ve interviewed many qualified veterans, especially in the installation and lead generation fields,” said Recruiter Ryan Richter. “The result is outstanding. We’re proud to employ everyone we’ve brought on. We’ll be continuing to advertise that we’re recruiting veterans and promoting it at some career fairs this year.”
Veterans often exemplify the definition of discipline, which is an important quality in a fast-paced sales environment like solar. Momentum looks to this demographic knowing they’ll find employees that value team work with utmost enthusiasm and integrity. With the renewables industry experiencing explosive growth it’s a great opportunity for those reentering the workforce. Momentum currently employs several veterans and hiring for solar panel installation, lead generation, sales, technical proposals, site inspection, customer service, and the call center.
