Solar Electrician

Job Description

They oversee the subcontractors during the construction phase of solar energy sites and maintain the systems throughout their contracted life – usually 15 or 20 years. This “life-cycle technical management” allows Greenskies to build career-long relationships with our Solar Technicians who in turn help the business retain the critical lessons learned over the years. Solar Technicians have a portfolio of projects near their home for which they are responsible, but may also be asked to lead the charge into new markets while the company identifies new local Solar Technicians for a permanent role.

  • Perform head-to-tail project commissioning at the end of the construction phase
  • Ongoing preventative maintenance visits to each system which will include inspections of wiring and connections, mechanical repairs, torque verification, thermal scans, string tests, inverter inspections, etc.
  • DC and AC testing included but not limited to polarity, open circuit voltage, grounding continuity, insulation resistance testing
  • Responding to scheduled and urgent maintenance cases
  • Completing operations and maintenance reports following every site visit
  • System monitoring start-up
  • Communicating with O&M and PMG groups in Connecticut for task prioritization
  • Representing Greenskies to clients on site in a professional manner
