Retail Solar Advisor

Sunrun Inc. Palmdale , CA 93551

Posted 3 months ago


Sunrun continues to expand rapidly as customer awareness and demand for solar increases. We have long-established relationships with some of the nation's largest and most trusted national retailers which provide us a great platform for driving further awareness and brand recognition. Retail Solar Advisors are Sunrun's brand ambassadors inside these stores, and the first point of contact for many of Sunrun's prospective customers. Our Retail Solar Advisors engage with prospective customers inside of our partner national retail stores, advise on the benefits of solar, and introduce qualified customers into the Sunrun sales process.

Previous solar or in-home sales experience is not required to succeed as a Retail Solar Advisor -in fact- many of our most successful Advisors came quota-driven roles in other customer service-based industries. With Sunrun's industry-leading training, success comes to those who are eager to learn and deliver a stunning experience while educating potential customers about our services. We are a performance-based culture that believes that hard work and success should be rewarded with both a strong compensation plan and opportunities for further career growth at Sunrun.

The history of our company is a biography of great talent. We hire, build, and grow great teams. Sunrun's talent distinguishes us from all other companies. We look for passionate, solution oriented individuals who have the courage to take on big impactful projects.
