Residential solar has been growing strong for several years now. Multiple studies now show that it is expected to continue its strong growth into the future as well. Solar companies have taken note of this and are expanding their operations.

Sunrun, the largest dedicated residential solar company in the United States, is planning to hire more than 800 additional employees and to expand or open 10 new offices across Arizona, California, Nevada, and Hawaii by the end of 2014. That will provide a nice boost to the already-growing numbers of solar jobs in the U.S.

The company’s rapid expansion is being fueled by increasing consumer demand. Home solar installations were up 45% industry-wide last quarter over Q2 2013, and the yearly growth projection is nearly 50% according to the Solar Energy Industries Association.

“Home solar installs have more than doubled in the last two years alone as Americans demand cleaner and more affordable energy like home solar,” said Lynn Jurich, chief executive officer of Sunrun. “We continue to invest in the areas of our business that support high demand and high customer satisfaction, from Sunrun BrightPath, which ensures customized solar and fast installation, to the quality assurance testing we perform on our hardware. Sunrun’s plans for continued expansion further reinforce our commitment to having the teams, operations, and resources in place for long-term growth and providing a high quality customer experience.”
