Solar One is seeking an experienced solar energy or affordable housing professional to provide solar consultation and procurement assistance to affordable housing providers in and around New York City. Solar One's Here Comes Solar program employs creative strategies to expand access to the benefits of solar energy among communities of color and low- and moderate- income residents. Strategies include running group purchasing campaigns; providing technical assistance to low-income cooperatives and affordable housing providers; securing financing for solar projects to overcome the upfront cost barrier; assisting with the implementation of the city’s Solar Where Feasible mandate; and helping building owners explore novel approaches such as solar canopies and community shared solar to increase their ability to benefit from solar energy.

You will manage relationships with individuals at government agencies, affordable housing providers and community-based organizations. This is an opportunity to play a key role in making solar energy more affordable and accessible in New York City and beyond. As a core member of the Here Comes Solar team you will report to Solar One's Director of Affordable Housing and will help shape the organization's broader strategy and work with colleagues and senior leadership to ensure program success.
