[start excerpt]

With a strong background in the Power Industry, our firm is now embarking on a very aggressive program of commercial solar power installations in the New Jersey area. To provide support during installation, startup and into Operations we are looking to enhance our staff with talented project management/engineering personnel. Since our project pipeline is continuing to grow we are currently seeking two candidates.

Job Requirements

The ideal candidate should have 10 years of experience in the power or related industries and have functioned in project engineer/project manager or lead engineer roles. Our primary focus for this solicitation is degreed engineers, with strong Electrical and I&C backgrounds, and understanding of the financial impact of project management. The candidate will play a significant role in technical review and analysis of contractor proposals and serve to oversee and manage the work of solar contractors on commercial installations and insure installation is proceeding in accordance with specifications, good engineering practice and conformance with contract documents. Experience in the Solar Industry on the design, including PV modeling, and installation of roof mounted and ground mounted systems is certainly a positive and since one of these roles will ultimately evolve into a role in Operations and Maintenance Management, experience in that area would also be viewed as a plus.
