Solar Appointment Setter – D2D

Marketing | San Diego, Orange, Riverside, and Los Angeles Counties

 

Do you want to change the world? We do, too.

The energy market is roughly $4 trillion globally, and solar penetration is less than 1%.  Just one hour of sunlight, if harnessed, could power the entire world for a year. We have the opportunity to completely change the way energy is produced, distributed and consumed on a national scale, and we’re looking for talented, committed people to help us drive our growth and achieve our goals.

Company Summary

GPS is one of the few profitable, high-growth energy companies in the Southwestern US and is therefore in a unique position to offer long term career opportunities and financial success.  We have more than 12 years of industry experience and a proven leadership team.  We handle every aspect of a turn-key fully integrated Green Power System — including assessment, financing, design and engineering, project management, monitoring, and ongoing maintenance/support — to ensure the most efficient and reliable solution.

Overview/Responsibilities

The Solar Appointment Setter primary responsibility is foot canvassing target neighborhoods and finding qualified homeowners interested in buying solar, and setting appointments for our salesmen to close.  The easiest method to do this is knocking door to door to set appointments to homeowners interested in going solar.

Work hours are Tuesday-Saturday, from 4pm-8pm.  A typical canvasser will set about 1-2 appointments per hour, of which half will sit (we call and confirm appointments before going to them), and about 1/3 of those our sales staff will end up closing.  The pay structure is quite generous … $10 per hour and $25 per appointment that ‘sits’ and a $250 bonus per appointment that ends up being closed by our salesmen.  Paychecks are paid every Friday.

This is a great job for college students, or high energy and solar-passionate individuals, with a skill set in grassroots lead generation.  Remember, we are after quality appointments, really look for people that are interested, they are out there waiting for you to find them!
