A little more than two months after Pink Energy announced its expansion into Indiana, the fast-growing solar and roofing company is ready to grow again. Residents of Missouri soon will have another alternative to grid power, with the Show-Me State becoming the eighth state in the company’s footprint. Pink Energy’s new office will be in St. Charles, a western suburb of St. Louis.
Pink Energy sells, finances, designs, pulls permits, and installs solar panels and energy systems for residential and commercial applications. The company works with homeowners and business owners to create custom rooftop or ground-mounted solar systems that generate renewable energy, lower electric bills and reduce carbon footprints.
Pink Energy will need dozens of new employees in the areas of sales, installation and administrative functions for its new office, located at 209 Hughes Lane in St. Charles. To begin building its Missouri workforce, Pink Energy will have hiring managers at its St. Charles office June 17-20 from 9 a.m.-6:30 p.m. CT to conduct open interviews and make hiring decisions for sales positions. Those interested should send an email to email@example.com.
“We see Missouri as a source of untapped potential for those interested in solar energy,” said Jayson Waller, CEO Pink Energy. “We want to increase renewable energy use in Missouri while helping customers reduce their energy costs and impact on the environment. Installing panels costs roughly the same amount as a electric bill, but once the financing term ends, the solar energy is completely free.”
Pink Energy has added six of its eight markets since 2017, with Michigan, Virginia, Ohio, western Pennsylvania and Indiana also joining since that time. Pink Energy eclipsed $100 million in revenue for the first time in 2018, and the North Carolina-based company is continuing its upward growth trajectory. It has won regional and national awards for its work and is currently the No. 12-ranked residential rooftop solar installer based on Solar Power World’s current rankings, though our number is expected to rise when the 2019 rankings come out in July.
Pink Energy also has built partnerships with five pro football franchises in the Carolina Panthers, Cleveland Browns, Detroit Lions, Indianapolis Colts and Pittsburgh Steelers, one pro baseball franchise in the Cleveland Indians, raising the company’s visibility within its markets.
The U.S. Energy Information Administration (EIA) notes that residential customers in Missouri pay an average of 9.5 cents per kilowatt-hour (kWh) for power. The average electricity consumption in the U.S. for a residential utility customer is 867 kWh per month.
Pink Energy uses American-made panels from a manufacturer in Washington that come with a 30-year warranty, and each of the panels generate about 36 kWh per month. A basic home installation will reduce grid energy consumption by an average of 60-80 percent, saving Missouri customers an average of nearly $60 per month.
Missouri ranks 28th in the U.S. in megawatts of solar installed, according to the Solar Energy Industries Association, and Pink Energy aims on raising the state’s rank.
Additionally, current tax credits reinforce that solar energy is a sound decision. Through 2019, the U.S. federal government offers a 30 percent tax incentive on newly installed solar systems.
