- Prepare and present reports for external energy industry partners and make operational improvements based on partner feedback
- Become a community solar subject matter expert and contribute to our knowledgebase of utility-specific operating procedures and regulations
- Collaborate with the Member Experience team to help answer customer questions or troubleshoot account issues
