Solar technicians are the technical experts that connect the business to the construction and maintenance of our fleet of solar assets from groundbreaking to decommissioning. 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.
