Regional Sales Manager

About Us

We believe solar is at the forefront of the energy revolution occurring in our country and throughout the world. But solar supply chains are messy and can be a hassle for solar companies to navigate. That’s where we come in.

Founded in 2015 and based in Austin, Texas, Kinect Solar provides solutions for buying, selling, shipping, and storing solar equipment – a one-stop shop for manufacturers, distributors, developers, and installers of all sizes. Our team includes solar industry veterans who know the ins and outs of solar sales and distribution, logistics, and system design. We work behind the scenes with solar companies that need help navigating the solar supply chain so they can focus on what they do best. We operate in the United States, Latin America, and the Caribbean.

We are a small, close-knit team that moves at a fast pace. Culture at Kinect Solar is a key factor to our success, so we seek out strong, dynamic people that strive for excellence at every turn, but we also don’t forget to have fun along the way. We are proud to be a certified woman-owned, hub-certified small business.
