Are you interested in making a difference in the world by helping our community meet its greenhouse gas emissions reduction goals? Would you like to work with engaged leaders in the local movement to reduce energy use and transition to renewable energy systems? If so, please read on and consider applying for this exciting job opportunity.

The Solar Tompkins Board of Directors is conducting a search for a uniquely qualified and talented individual to hire as Program Director for HeatSmart II, an expansion of last year’s ground-breaking HeatSmart pilot program. The successful candidate will have the opportunity to participate in a limited term project with the goal of spurring 200 or more homes within Tompkins County to convert to heat pump technologies and/or undertake building efficiency measures. He/She will contribute leadership and guidance within a proven, effective program that optimizes the customer experience and simplifies what can otherwise be a complex set of decisions. The Program Director’s contract position will begin in early December, 2016, and last through December 31, 2017.

The Program Director will be directly involved in shaping the program to reach those goals, and will be responsible for the day-to-day operation and management of the program.

This is an exciting campaign for Tompkins County, and a rare opportunity for the right individual to make a difference in the energy outlook for the community. No need to be an expert right now on all the energy science, but a strong willingness to learn and demonstrated customer service and program management skills are essential.
