Considering A Career in Solar? Sales People Tell All

solar sales jobs

In recent days, the solar industry has made headlines and perhaps even made you look twice at your neighbor’s rooftop for solar panels. If you’re seeing solar panels in your area, you have a chance at a career in selling them — as a Solar Sales Specialist with Sunpro.

The Solar Foundation reported in its 2019 National Solar Jobs Census that solar jobs have increased 167% over the past decade in the United States, adding 156,000 jobs. Sunpro Solar is proud to be in that number of growing companies.

Sure, each completed solar rooftop is an accomplishment, but we get more satisfaction from knowing that we’re making a difference in people’s lives and improving the environment.

“It didn’t feel like a sales job, it felt like I was given an opportunity to help homeowners solve a problem,” says top-3 Sunpro sales rep, Joseph Scariano.

Of course, if you’re looking for a career in which you can make money fast and enjoy a flexible work schedule, Solar Sales Specialists who are self-motivated, positive, dedicated and have a strong work ethic are making between $100K-300K annually.

A premier, opportunity-rich renewable energy company, Sunpro Solar is giving voice to members of the sales team whose careers have grown astronomically with Sunpro.

“I WAS DOING MANUAL LABOR…”

“I had no sales experience before Sunpro. I was doing manual labor and all I knew was that I couldn’t do this forever. I needed to find a job where I could stay active, do something helpful and be successful,” says Scariano.

The longevity of the company, the number of successful installs and manufacturer partnerships with brands like LG are just a few reasons why solar sales interests applicants who have never sold solar technology or any sort of home energy product for that matter.

Scariano advises that, “even if you have no sales experience, you can be successful in this company. Just trust the process, it might not happen overnight. Trust the program, wake up everyday and help homeowners save a lot of money.“

“YOU’LL BE SET UP FOR SUCCESS FROM DAY ONE…”

Sunpro Solar offers paid training that teaches you about the renewable energy industry, the ins-and-outs of the solar systems you’re selling, and provides you all the tools you need.

“Being one of the top 3 reps in a major solar company, that speaks volumes to Sunpro’s management and training. You’ll be set up for success from day one. I didn’t know a thing about solar before I started. But I took a ton of notes and soaked up everything they were teaching us and I felt ready to get started after the training, says Scariano.

“HE SENT OUT LETTERS TO ALL HIS CUSTOMERS…”

Members of the Sunpro Solar Sales team often find that their customer relationships turn into more referrals down the road. That’s because the sales team is not forcing solar on people. They’re eliminating an existing problem that homeowners are having with the electric companies.

“Whether you’re located in Florida, or Texas, or wherever, we’re going to help you all the way through the process. We don’t use sub-contractors and everyone is in-house. I let homeowners know that we’re not ‘here one day and gone the next,’” says Joseph Scariano.

Developing that sense of trust is critical for any successful Sunpro sales person. The trust between solar sales rep and homeowner is something that, in turn, is shared with others.

Scariano tells of one such experience, “After one install, the customer was so impressed, he sent out letters to all his customers about Sunpro. Since then he’s had over 15 referrals go solar with us.”

“IT’S AN EASIER SELL…”

Sunpro is the largest solar installer for LG. In fact, Sunpro Solar has top priority the latest panels from LG, and we’re able to sell them to homeowners before any other company in the United States.

So what does that mean for Sunpro Sales Specialists?

“Using LG, that’s a name brand that homeowners can trust. From brand names to our Energypro services, that is a huge plus that not everyone does. If a homeowner is familiar with a name brand, it’s an easier sell,” says Scariano.

“SUNPRO IS ALL ABOUT TRUST…”

“Sunpro is more like a large family. Most jobs out there are so stressful, and with us it’s so relaxed. Being able to have a relationship with your project coordinator and people in our office is important, says Scariano, “That’s what sets us apart from every other company. It’s all about trust.”

It’s important at Sunpro that our Solar Sales team feels comfortable and has fun with what they do. When we relieve the pressure from sales it makes an impact on the rest of the company culture and the way our customers experience our services.

“Sunpro is taking off and we’re going to be #1. 

To be a part of that is something special.”
