Powering the Dreams of the Next Generation
I started out as an office admin and have been able to grow my position to include many other responsibilities. I have learned a lot with Nelnet Renewable Energy and continue to learn more every day!”
I started at Nelnet Renewable Energy with zero knowledge of solar, electrical, or construction. In 4.5 years, I grew from residential installer to commercial foreman and now I’m currently the commercial superintendent and a licensed electrician, managing a team of 40+ individuals and a project portfolio of 39 megawatts.
Nelnet Renewable Energy has provided me with so many career advancement opportunities. Having endless support throughout the company is one of the best things about working here!
