SolarCity, America’s number one solar provider, is set to hire 500 new employees on October 21, during an all-day hiring event.

SolarCity has been growing its footprint across the US for several years now, rolling out a bevy of new programs and offerings for consumers across the country. In late September, the residential solar provider announced that it would begin offering a new solar service specifically for affordable housing communities, developers, and residents, while earlier in the month the company announced the creation of a new $400 million solar project fund. SolarCity is also joining the race for same-day rooftop solar, jumping well ahead of the current race for 7-day solar installation.

And despite a net loss during the second quarter, SolarCity was still proud to announce record bookings and installations for the quarter.

So it should come as no real surprise that SolarCity is not only looking to add 500 new employees, but is planning on doing so during an all-day hiring event on Wednesday, October 21.

SolarCity is planning to add 500 new employees to its sales force across ten states, and will play host to simultaneous events across those same ten states:

  • Maryland – Clarksburg; Hunt Valley; Beltsville
  • Pennsylvania – Norristown
  • Delaware – Newark
  • Nevada – Las Vegas
  • New Jersey – Blackwood
  • New York – Bethpage, Long Island; Westchester
  • Connecticut – Hartford; Milford
  • Massachusetts – Marlborough; Norwell
  • Vermont/New Hampshire – Burlington
  • California – Milpitas; Emeryville; Roseville; Orange County; Hawthorne; Riverside; San Diego

The company already employs more than 14,000 in the US, and has already been adding 500 new employees on average per month during 2015, so this new hiring frenzy is not as impressive as it may have appeared at first glance. Nevertheless, it is tellingly representative of the current demand for residential and small-scale solar throughout the US.
