How long have you been with Next Energy Alliance: 1 Year
What does your normal day-to-day look like?
As a project manager I check our database daily to start processing new jobs coming up to attempt to map the day out. From there it’s all over the place! On any given day I do everything from submitting new permits to utility applications, from coordinating with installation crews to making sure accounts are in order.
What is your favorite part of your job?
Seeing the progress of accounts from start to finish.
What do you like about working at NEA?
How close we are as a team. It’s a real family-like environment.
What excites you the most about the solar industry?
Solar benefits everyone involved. It saves the consumer money, provides jobs, helps stabilize the grid, and helps the environment. I’m happy to be a part of that.
What is something that most people don’t know about you?
I’ve seen the same band in concert over 50 times.
What is your favorite hobby?
I’m a big fan of sports and competing so anything to do with that. I played outside constantly growing up which is most likely why I'm drawn to it and continue to partake. The games/sports that I like vary anywhere from Golf to Darts to Snowboarding.
