How Leaders Describe a Typical Day at Work

Solar Energy Consultant ,

Buffalo Solar

My day mostly consists of working with Microsoft Excel and other programs to collect and analyze data. I look at a client's utilities and location data and whittle it down into a comprehensive proposal to accurately highlight the benefits of solar energy for the client's unique situation. I may also drive out and do on-site work, which can include taking roof measurements, looking at the electrical infrastructure, and bringing together all of the technical details to accurately design a project.

Energy Consultant ,

HelioPower Solar

I contact and visit homeowners and explain to them why buying power produced by solar panels will be cheaper than buying power from the utility.
