About our team

The PureVolt team is a mix of solar specialists on the one hand, and marketing / tech nerds on the other. Why does this matter to you? Well, the marketing guys are the reason we now have more enquiries than we can currently install. The tech guys are the reason you will never show up to a job with the wrong parts. And the solar specialists are the reason that, when you arrive at the customer's door, all of their questions have already been answered.

Who will I be working with?

We're a small team of committed people who have got each other's backs. If you care about your colleagues, care about doing a good job and care about the environment — we want you on our team. Here's a look at who you will be working with.
