POWERHOME, one of the fastest-growing American companies specializing in solar energy and energy efficiency services, is somehow holding onto that spirit in these tough times for solar sales. The company announced the opening of its office in Raleigh, N.C., and Murfreesboro, Tenn. The Raleigh location is POWERHOME’s third location in North Carolina, while Murfreesboro is its first foray into Tennessee.
“Despite a massive disruption to the economy, consumer interest in solar continues,” said Jayson Waller, CEO of POWERHOME. “More than ever, consumers are becoming energy conscious and are looking for ways to gain energy independence and decrease their monthly expenses. We’re committed to helping those in our home state become energy independent and have the opportunity to own their power, instead of endlessly renting it from the utility companies.”
North Carolina is among the most active states in the nation for solar installations, ranking second for installed capacity, according to the Solar Energy Industries Association. POWERHOME plans to hire up to 100 people in Raleigh the coming months in the areas of energy consulting and installation. POWERHOME has worked to build additional visibility in the state by forging partnerships with NC State Athletics and the Carolina Panthers.
Tennessee marks the 10th market in the company’s footprint. Here too POWERHOME plans to hire up to 100 people in the coming months in the areas of sales and installation.
