Energy Policy Staff

Michelle Powell | October 31, 2018 | Jobs and Internships

Highly-qualified individuals with professional experience that demonstrates an understanding of energy policy issues are encouraged to provide a resume and letter of interest for future positions that we may have.

When hiring opportunities arise, SACE sometimes will hire individuals with a strong working knowledge of electric utility industry regulation, planning, finance or program administration, or of renewable energy business development without formally posting the position.

We anticipate future openings for staff with knowledge and experience in one or more of the following areas: solar and wind energy development, industrial and commercial energy management, utility system resource planning, energy efficiency programs, or utility regulatory policy. The applicant must demonstrate solid skills in most of the following areas: writing, public speaking, analytic and computer applications. Experience with state agencies, decision-makers, media, or non-profit advocacy necessary.

We are often flexible as to job location, typically expecting staff to be based in Tennessee, Carolinas, Georgia, Florida, Alabama or (more rarely) Washington, DC. Salary offers are commensurate with nonprofit compensation in the Southeast, and include a full benefits package. It is possible that we may fill a new position without advertising it should the right applicant indicate interest.

The Southern Alliance for Clean Energy is an equal opportunity employer and considers candidates for employment without regard to race, color, creed, national origin, religion, age, gender, marital status or sexual orientation. We strongly encourage applications from women and persons of diverse racial and ethnic backgrounds.

Applicants should email resume and letter of interest to [email protected] and note any restrictions regarding location, salary and dates of availability. Due to the high volume of inquiries we receive, we are unable to personally contact all applicants. Please be assured that every application is reviewed and considered by a senior member of our staff.
