To support this growth, Sunrun will be present at the Las Vegas Choice Career Fair April 14 and the Military Spouse Hiring Fair at Nellis Air Force Base April 29 to meet and interview candidates.


"Weve grown our business and footprint in Nevada since we began offering Sunrun solar in the market last year," said Ethan Miller, senior vice president of operations at Sunrun.

Nevada jumped from number eight to the number one rank in per capita solar jobs in the U.S. last year.

Currently, Sunrun is available to homeowners serviced by NV Energy in Las Vegas, North Las Vegas, Henderson, Mesquite, Boulder City and the surrounding areas, and continues to look for opportunities to extend its service within the state, like the regions surrounding Reno and Carson City. By continuing to grow its network, Sunrun aims to make home solar accessible to more consumers in Nevada and nationwide.

As the first company to introduce solar as a service to American homeowners, Sunrun has reinvented the way people buy electricity.

What if you could maximize the Ground Coverage Ratio (GCR) on your next project and not have to worry about the complicated variables that come with a tracker system?

The system is available in three tilt options (7.5, 10 and 12.5 degrees) and designed to accommodate any sized PV module. The lightweight system is engineered with fewer components, several of which are shipped to job sites pre-assembled. This design feature reduces freight costs and rapidly trims the amount of on-site installation time required to complete construction.
