Software engineers design cutting edge digital tools — for PV system design and monitoring; clean energy investment, finance, and sales; field training, project permitting, and service logistics.
In a rapidly changing industry, software engineers dream up the digital platforms and programs that link solar investment, operations, sales, and customer service partners. Their jobs range from needs assessment to coding, testing, and deployment. They might develop game-based training to improve installation and inspection; financial software to aggregate investment, benchmark transactions, and manage loans; or online tools for service and fleet logistics. Simulation models for whole-building energy systems are critical to a clean energy future; software architects can design them. They can also develop systems and apps to monitor real-time energy production and consumption. Smart meters start with smart software.
