Residents across the state are seeing how affordable solar is, and their hunger for renewable energy has led us to opening a second office to accommodate for our growing customer base.

POWERHOME SOLAR, one of the fastest-growing American companies specializing in solar energy and energy efficiency services, is further expanding its presence in Indiana by opening sales and installation offices in the Fort Wayne area that will provide homeowners and businesses in northeast Indiana with a supplement to grid energy.

POWERHOME SOLAR plans to hire up to 100 employees in the coming months to fill warehouse, installation and sales positions. Walk-in interviews for installers, warehouse personnel, electricians and CDL drivers will be held on Feb. 17-18 at the new installation office in Decatur (2232 W. Patterson St.) from 8 a.m.-4 p.m. No prior experience for installers is necessary, as the company offers on-the-job training.

“Electricity prices continue to increase in Indiana,” said POWERHOME SOLAR CEO Jayson Waller. “Residents across the state are seeing how affordable solar is, and their hunger for renewable energy has led us to opening a second office to accommodate for our growing customer base. This also opens the door for more available jobs in the renewable energy market.”

The average monthly electric bill in Indiana is more than $120, per 2019 data from the U.S. Energy Information Administration, putting the state in the top half of the country among those with highest electric bills. Solar panels can be financed (in some cases, for roughly the same cost as your electric bill), and once the financing ends, so does your payment for solar, allowing customers to “own their power.”

The cost to install solar has decreased significantly in the past decade, with the catalysts being lower equipment costs and various government tax incentives. Congress recently renewed a federal solar tax credit of 26 percent on newly-installed solar systems through 2021 and 2022. Indiana also supports net metering, which allows consumers to sell their excess energy back to participating utility companies at retail rates.
