Vision Solar has plans to expand nationwide (now hiring in Tempe, Arizona)

Vision Solar

Vision Solar, one of the fastest-growing solar companies in the United States, is opening a new location in Tempe, Ariz., this month, signaling the company’s plans to expand nationwide. Vision Solar plans to hire more than 60 employees, sales representatives, technicians and installers for the Tempe location which will serve the Scottsdale-Phoenix market — a strategic move, given that Arizona is among the top ranked states for its residential solar capacity.

Arizona also held its national ranking as the third-largest in solar installation in 2018, according to the Solar Energy Industries Association’s year-in-review report.

Vision Solar is a full-service renewable energy company based in Pennsylvania that was recently named the number one installer by SunPower Solar on the East Coast. With a combined experience of over 50 years, the company proudly serves residents throughout Pennsylvania and New Jersey — and, now, thanks to the new Tempe location, throughout Arizona.

“We are thrilled to announce that Vision Solar is entering one of the most exciting solar markets in the United States: Arizona,” states Mike Eden, CRO of Vision Solar. “This move signals our strategic plans for aggressive growth nationwide, as one of the fastest growing solar companies in the nation, and also shows how much we have expanded in the less than three years since our inception.”

Apart from providing customers with easy financing options, Vision Solar also ensures that the entire process of installation is handled in-house, to provide the smoothest and most convenient experience of switching to solar energy.

Vision Solar also promises savings to consumers who make the switch to solar energy. According to company estimates, consumers can save up to an average of 30 percent on their monthly electric bills, in addition to other savings in the form of tax and financial incentives.

Vision Solar is dedicated to improving the lives of customers as well as to protecting the environment.

Vision Solar opens two new locations on the East Coast as part of expansion plan

Vision Solar

One of America’s fastest growing solar companies, Vision Solar, has launched two new locations in Reading, PA and Edison, NJ as part of its expansion plan. The company has invested about half a million dollars in capital towards growth and has hired more than 30 employees in the two new locations as part of its expansion effort.

Vision Solar aims to grow its operations with a more local footprint to serve the residents and communities of Pennsylvania and New Jersey better.

“Vision Solar is proud to announce two new locations in Pennsylvania and New Jersey,” states Mike Eden, the CSO of Vision Solar. “Vision Solar has always shown deep commitment to local communities and this expansion effort will provide us with additional opportunities to serve the residents of these areas even better than before. What’s a better way to give back to the community than serving the people and protecting the environment?”

The company offers a zero money down financing program, making the move to solar energy extremely affordable. What makes the transition convenient and smooth is that it takes only 24 hours for Vision Solar’s installation process to complete after receiving all the necessary permits.

Vision also prides itself on its customer care. Since the entire process is taken care of in-house, customers can rest assured that they have to deal with only one point of contact rather than a number of different contractors. Vision Solar manages everything starting from the design of the project all the way to the installation and activation to make sure that their customers receive the very best service possible.
