Under DCSEU’s Solar for All Program, the program has is providing incentives to increase solar generation in DC that directly benefits income qualified households and residents. The DCSEU’s solar program also finds creative ways to incentivize solar through leveraging, providing preliminary solar design assistance, and tracking solar opportunities.
The DCSEU is looking for a seasoned solar professional to join our team as a Solar Program Manager to assist with managing our work deploying solar to single family homes and commercial locations in DC. Program Manager will be a big picture thinker with a working knowledge of the solar industry who can envision how the DCSEU could use existing resources to mobilize greater solar penetration into this market. Program Manager will manage certain aspects of the Solar for All program as well as other strategic opportunities to leverage existing funds and resources. Program manager will also work to identify future pipeline and opportunities to deploy more solar locally, while strategizing how to overcome barriers to solar development in the solar industry. Knowledge of the technical, financial, market and policy aspects of solar in the District and beyond is desired but not required. Similarly, familiarity with solar market actors and personnel in the District is an advantage but not required.
