RALEIGH — POWERHOME is setting up shop in Raleigh.
The Charlotte-based energy efficiency firm announced today that it is opening an office in Raleigh — its third location in the state.
The new office is located at 9208 Falls of Neuse Rd., Suite 120.
The uptick: plans to hire up to 100 people in the coming months in the areas of energy consulting and installation.
“Despite a massive disruption to the economy, consumer interest in solar continues,” said Jayson Waller, CEO of POWERHOME, in a statement. “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.”
According to its jobs board, the firm is already hiring for a field energy sales consultant and outside sales consultant.
Launched in 2015 in Mooresville, the firm today has more than 900 employees, including a commercial division, and operates in 10 states.
Late last year, POWERHOME said it was partnering with NC State Athletics to install solar panels at Carter-Finley Stadium, home of the NC State Wolfpack football team.
