Careers

The Clean Coalition team consists of talented, motivated, and passionate individuals determined to accelerate the transition to renewable energy and a modern grid through technical, policy, and project development expertise.

We offer a flexible atmosphere of working remotely, but thrive as a high-performing team tackling challenging work. The Clean Coalition drives policy innovation to remove barriers to procurement and interconnection of distributed energy resources (DER) — such as local renewables, advanced inverters, demand response, and energy storage — and we establish market mechanisms that realize the full potential of integrating these solutions. The Clean Coalition also collaborates with utilities and municipalities to create near-term deployment opportunities that prove the technical and financial viability of local renewables and other DER.

The Clean Coalition is a growing organization and looking for new team members to help achieve our mission. If you consider yourself qualified and are eager to help advance local renewable energy, then please apply to one of our open positions below.
