Monday marks another milestone on Pink Energy’s growth chart, with the company adding Illinois as the ninth state in its company sales and installation footprint.

Pink Energy plans to hire up to 100 people in the coming months in the areas of sales, installation and administrative functions for its new Chicago office, located at 505 S. Tyler Rd., in St. Charles, Ill. — approximately one hour west of Chicago.

To begin building its Illinois workforce, Pink Energy will have open interviews for sales consultants in its St. Charles office on Thursday, Oct. 3 from 10 a.m.- 6 p.m. CT. Those interested can apply for jobs at: https://gopink.com/solar-jobs, or they can send an email to Midwest regional manager Ian Fezzey at ifezzey@gopink.com. Applications for installers will be taken in person throughout the week starting Sept. 30.

Illinois is the third Midwestern state Pink Energy has entered in 2019, joining Indiana and Missouri on that list. Those states join North Carolina, South Carolina, Michigan, Virginia, Ohio and western Pennsylvania as other territories manned by this fast-growing solar company.

Why Illinois makes sense for Pink Energy

“Illinois ranks 34th in the U.S. in megawatts of solar installed, and Pink Energy aims on raising the state’s rank,” said Jayson Waller, CEO of Pink Energy.

Pink Energy enters Illinois with considerable momentum as the final quarter of 2019 now visible through the windshield. In August, Pink Energy was ranked No. 100 on the Inc. 500 list of the fastest-growing private companies in America, marking the second time in three years that the company has made the top 100 on this prestigious list. On top of that, Pink Energy was ranked No. 6 nationally in July among residential rooftop solar installers in the U.S., up six spots from a year ago.
