Our Values Define our Being: We accept that challenges make us stronger and we enjoy the satisfaction of a job well done.

REC Solar's vision is to make solar electricity part of the mainstream energy supply. By commercializing energy sources that reduce greenhouse gas emissions and reliance on fossil fuels, we can contribute to a more secure and sustainable world.

One of the nation’s largest photovoltaic installation companies with several million watts of solar installed, we currently serve Arizona, California, Colorado, Hawaii, New Jersey, and Oregon residents and business owners. We hope to encourage local and national legislation in order to make solar a practical investment opportunity in every state.

Since 2006, REC Solar has been ranked by the California Energy Commission (CEC) as one of the top solar system installation companies in the state. With the recent Million Solar Roofs legislation signed into action by Governor Schwarzenegger, California has emerged as the nation’s leader in renewable energy and solar electric installations.

REC Solar was founded in 1997 by Judy Ledford and Fred Sisson. REC Solar is one of only a few solar electric companies in California with engineers certified by the North American Board of Certified Energy Practitioners.

Although having a national presence, REC Solar prides itself on being a local business in all of the communities where we offer solar electric systems. We currently have over 250 full time employees and we are committed to providing competitive jobs in the communities that we serve.

Ask one of our employees what they like most about working at REC Solar and they will inevitably say "the people". In fact, our people are the most important part of our company. At REC Solar, we value a diverse workforce that revolves around innovation, creativity, passion, and team work.

While REC Solar’s primary goal is to protect our environment through the use of renewable energy and environmentally friendly resources, we also strive to maintain an environment where the employees are happy to work in our performance-focused company. REC Solar has quickly garnered a reputation as a company where our workers are treated well and are compensated fairly.

We offer an attractive compensation and benefits package designed to reward you for your hard work and performance. Our benefits include competitive pay, paid time off and health and welfare benefits such as medical, dental, vision and 401K.
