Solar Crew Chief

Supervise teams of basic PV installers at a worksite. Motivate and coordinate, keeping crews focused and on schedule; verifying safety procedures and equipment, and providing quality assurance.

The solar crew chief is an onsite supervisor who leads small teams of installers and helpers, and typically reports to a project manager or superintendent. Working alongside other team members, the chief reads specifications to determine work requirements, establishes the order of operations, checks tools, tracks installation progress, monitors safety, and inspects and documents work. The crew leader must communicate clearly with supervisors, peers and subordinates.
