Question
Plan Your Career

I’m thinking about installing solar panels for a career. What’s that like?

Answer

A solar installer sells and delivers solar thermal and/or solar power generation equipment to customers and clients at their homes, businesses or construction sites.

Solar installers work with clients and customers to determine what solar generation technology options will best suit their needs. They then sell and deliver the chosen solar thermal or solar photovoltaic power generation equipment to customers and clients at their homes, businesses or construction sites, where they install, service and maintain the equipment.

For larger projects, especially those involving new construction, solar installers work with or supervise project teams and coordinate with tradespersons and contractors to ensure the safe, effective and efficient installation of equipment.
