Co-op participants selected Envinity through a competitive bidding process over three other firms. This selection played a part in the firm’s decision to open a new Pittsburgh office in January 2019, bringing new jobs to Allegheny County.
“Envinity is honored to be chosen as the solar installer for the Solar United Neighbors Allegheny County Co-op,” said Andy Porter of Envinity. “We will work diligently to provide all of the participants with a positive ‘going solar’ experience. We appreciate this opportunity to help contribute to a sustainable energy future for Allegheny County. We also want to express our gratitude to Solar United Neighbors for all their amazing efforts to promote solar power. The collective strength of their cooperative model provides homeowners with a wonderful resource that gives them peace of mind and helps them to achieve their goals of going solar.”
When Envinity opens its new Pittsburgh office, it plans to hire additional solar installers, designers, and sales team members. It also plans to establish a solar training program to help area residents learn the skills needed for a career in the solar industry, and to play an active role in promoting a solar-powered future for Pennsylvania.
