A residential solar company is opening a new corporate office in downtown Denver.

Sunrun announced it plans to open the Denver office before the end of the month and will hire up to 800 workers over the next few years.

“We already know that Colorado homeowners love solar and that Colorado has a highly skilled workforce. Our fast-growing industry also has support from Colorado’s elected leaders through strong in-state and federal solar policies like the solar Investment Tax Credit (ITC),” said Lynn Jurich, chief executive officer of Sunrun.

Colorado's solar industry employs more than 4,200 people, according to The Solar Foundation.

Sunrun's career page already lists several jobs in Denver -- customer care positions, electrician, installation jobs and more.

Sunrun says it has more than 100,000 customers.
