Career Opportunities


Energy Consultant

Sierra Business Council is seeking an enthusiastic, customer service oriented professional to support our growing Energy Services team.  SBC's Energy Services team is currently under contract with Pacific Gas and Electric Company to implement the Sierra Nevada Energy Watch – a local government partnership with PG&E to help small/medium sized businesses and municipalities reduce their energy use through the installation of energy efficiency technologies.

Energy Consultants are at the core of SBC’s Energy Service Team and work under the direction of the Program Director. They are responsible for representing our services to our customers and working with skilled trade professionals (e.g. C-10, C-20, C-38) to develop leads, pre-assess projects, build customer proposals, and maintain strong professional relationships with customers, contractors and program partners.  The ideal candidate will have a strong customer service background, preferably in sales and construction trades. SBC offers a competitive salary, benefits package, and generous paid vacation.
