And our Electricians will continue to grow as Sandbox provides training opportunities and allowances to support them. Sandbox Solar is a great place to take your Electrical career to the next level!

With the help of our electrical department, we are able to ensure end to end quality installations for our customers that are up to code specs and our company standards.
