Work Towards Protecting Solar Energy in CA 

Campaign Staff Needed $20-$25/hr + bonuses


Petitioners and Team Leaders 

Hiring Immediately –  Full-time & Part-time


Work towards Protecting Solar Energy in CA!

This campaign is about equitable access to cheaper, clean energy. Utilities like PG&E are trying to block people from getting solar, just as solar is becoming more accessible to working people, especially those in marginalized communities. The dirty power companies are lobbying the California Public Utilities Commission (CPUC) to make consumer solar twice as expensive than it is today. This would put solar out of reach for the working and middle class, just when it is taking off. It would also make the grid more expensive for everyone, forcing all consumers to pay $120 billion more for electricity. We want to keep growing solar in California so more families, schools, and small businesses can keep harnessing clean power from the sun. The CPUC is expected to make a decision by the end of this year.

We have a goal of getting 30,000 Californian residents to sign a petition by the first week of October so we can deliver them to Sacramento and make a big show, before the CPUC decides on the future of solar in our state!


Get paid well! Petitioning positions start at $20/hour. Leadership positions earn $21/hour. We offer performance bonuses, overtime pay, transportation bonuses, paid training, sick pay, and bonuses for friend referrals. All team members have the opportunity to earn an extra $100 for referring someone who is hired and works at least 5 shifts.
