This month’s employee spotlight features Ben Margolis from our project finance team.

At Sol Systems, our team is our number one asset. Their dedication and passion for bringing creative financing solutions to the solar industry are essential to our company’s success. Our company has experienced a lot of recent growth, and we are proud to employ some of the brightest talent in the renewable energy industry. We were able to sit down with Ben Margolis, who has been with Sol Systems for a little over a year and serves as a Director of Project Finance, to hear about his experience.

Has Sol Systems changed since you first started here?

Since I started, we’ve added construction and term debt for solar projects, and we have grown the project finance group and project finance offerings; change in market place has shifted our approach to the market and forced us to adapt, and it’s all been very interesting to be a part of.

What attracted you to work at Sol Systems?

The people. Sol Systems is a great place to work because of the team; it’s exciting and interesting. As a company, Sol Systems has the right people and the right team and is well positioned in the marketplace to succeed.

Do you have any tips for people wanting to launch a career in renewable energy?

Just do it and start anywhere. This industry is not a simple one; there are a lot of players, and it’s becoming competitive. The first step is learning the industry, the second is figuring out where you want to be in the industry, and the third is growing within the industry.

What do you like to do outside of work?

Outside of work, I like to hang out with my family, especially since the addition of my new daughter, fix up my new house, read books, listen to music, hike, make beer and wine, and garden.

What do you like most about working at Sol Systems?

The company as a whole is very creative and very versatile. The adaptability of the company has allowed for growth and expansion and with that, Sol Systems has developed the ability to shift and pivot with this ever-changing market. I, as well as the whole team, get to play a role in the evolution of the solar industry.

The Sol Systems team is expanding rapidly to accommodate its business growth and is currently hiring for several positions, including: Asset Manager, Tax Equity Associate, Senior Tax Equity Director, and Fall 2014 Solar Analyst Interns. Please view our careers page for opportunities.
