Job Description

Solar jobs are showing positive growth at a rate that is 17 times faster than the U.S. economy’s rate of growth. Are you a visionary who can harness the power of that type of potential? PeopleReady is now hiring Solar Field Technicians who are passionate about tapping into their “high-energy” skills to be a part of the solar revolution.

Solar Technicians maintain solar power systems so they work at their highest capacity at our clients’ jobsites. This can mean working with a passive system, such as heat from a window, or an active system, like the traditional solar panels on a roof that gather and direct sunlight into storage batteries. Maintaining these systems entails repairing solar panels, replacing pumps or fans, and exploring more effective designs. For the design portion, you — the Solar Technician — work with trained Solar Engineers. Together, you evaluate the problem, observe the current process, and build solutions. Once you’ve designed a new product or process, you assist in its installation and maintenance. If this position sounds like a dream that is too good to be true, we would love for you to apply at the link above.

Responsibilities

  • Repairing common issues, including ground fault, inverter malfunction/failure, wire damage, blown fuses, and A/C disconnect box failure
  • Diagnosing panel and panel connection issues via roof access
  • Issuing RMAs (Return Merchandise Authorizations) for improperly functioning materials
  • Tracking field progress, including taking pictures and creating brief reports


Qualifications & Experience

  • Knowledge of solar materials, including modules, inverters, and monitoring systems
  • Proficiency in electrical and switch gear wiring
  • Have tools of the trade and be able to bring them to jobsite
  • References to verify your professional skills and experience
  • Strong work ethic and positive attitude
  • Able to lift up to 50 pounds and remain in a stationary position for extended periods
