Sunrun Expanding, Plans To Enter New Markets + Add 800 New Employees

The US-based solar leasing giant Sunrun is planning a major expansion throughout the country, with the aim to enter a number of new markets and to add over 800 new employees, according to recent reports.


The plans call for the expansion and opening of new offices in the Arizonan, Nevadan, Californian, and Hawaiian markets, as well as the boosting of workforce numbers in the states of New York, New Jersey, and Colorado.

Part of the reason for the expansion is down to the fact that the company has been quite successful as of late — with residential installations in the US having doubled in the past two years.

The company is also continuing to devote resources to the improvement of its residential installation design and customization software, its quality assurance program.

Many of the new employees that the company is looking to hire will be in sales and field-operations divisions — this includes the system installers, the marketing teams, and the site maintenance technicians.


On a closing note, it’s probably worth reprinting what Nevada Assemblyman David Bobzien of the state’s Assembly Committee on Commerce and Labor stated back in August when Sunrun opened its newest office there: “Sunrun’s entry in the market is proof that the Nevada Legislature’s steady work last session on renewable energy policy is making a difference.”

Sure. An appropriate policy climate certainly plays a part. But certainly so does Sunrun’s ambitious (and successful) business model, as does the tremendous solar resources in the 4 states Sunrun is opening up new offices.

Nevada has been lucking out lately, though, or doing a great job attracting cleantech businesses. It also won the Tesla Gigafactory contract while facing stiff opposition from Texas, California, and Arizona.

I don't like paywalls. You don't like paywalls. Who likes paywalls? Here at CleanTechnica, we implemented a limited paywall for a while, but it always felt wrong — and it was always tough to decide what we should put behind there. In theory, your most exclusive and best content goes behind a paywall. But then fewer people read it! We just don't like paywalls, and so we've decided to ditch ours. Unfortunately, the media business is still a tough, cut-throat business with tiny margins. It's a never-ending Olympic challenge to stay above water or even perhaps — gasp — grow. So ...
