Accounting and Administration
Apex’s Accounting, Human Resources, Facilities, and Information Technology professionals are vital to keeping Apex running efficiently and effectively.
Apex’s Remote Operations Control Center monitors and controls all wind and solar assets around the clock. ROCC operators coordinate closely with field operations staff to keep every facility running safely and at peak performance.

Corporate Finance oversees internal financial planning and analysis, working closely with other Apex departments on budgets and business strategies.
The Corporate Strategy team is responsible for exploring and advancing Apex’s growth opportunities, including its industry-leading green fuels ventures.
Distributed Energy Resources
“Distributed energy” typically refers to PV solar systems sized to produce one to twenty megawatts of electricity; these can power small communities. The DER team manages the development and execution of Apex’s community solar business.
Apex offers energy storage solutions, either as a standalone product or as part of a renewable energy system. The Apex Storage team works closely with others across the organization to realize the opportunities presented by this nascent market.
Permitting is key to developing successful clean energy projects. Apex works to identify the permits required for a given jurisdiction, the studies needed to satisfy those permits, and potential vulnerabilities.
Federal and State Affairs
These teams work to shape a policy and regulatory environment that promotes all aspects of the Apex model. Our point of view is communicated through direct engagement on Capitol Hill, in state houses across the country, and with clean energy trade organizations.
Apex has an experienced team that maintains close relationships with financial institutions and providers to ensure stable and reliable investments. Our analysts play a critical role in evaluating project sites, selecting vendors, and assessing a variety of clean energy financial structures.
The Land group works closely with developers to forge partnerships with landowners and to maintain and manage energy leases, which allow Apex to develop wind and solar facilities on private property.
Apex uses both internal and external counsel to oversee crucial legal transactions—lease structures, PPAs, and others—to mitigate risk and ensure maximum flexibility for projects.
Marketing and Communications
The Marketing and Communications team focuses on elevating Apex’s corporate brand through industry-leading content, media relations, digital marketing, and partnerships.
New Markets provides the market intelligence that drives Apex’s greenfielding process and overall strategy to identify potential sites for clean energy projects. All the crucial elements must come together to qualify.
The Apex Development team sees projects from site selection through financing and construction, identifying supportive landowners, cost-effective opportunities, and flexibility across changing permitting timelines.
Overseeing the engineering and construction of Apex’s utility-scale facilities means prioritizing safety, security, and quality control to complete projects on time and on budget.
Apex sees landowners and communities as true partners in our renewable energy projects. The Public Engagement team works to build relationships with local stakeholders to help ensure a project’s success.
Apex’s safety performance is second to none. This team works to cultivate a culture of safety throughout the company and employs a proactive, collaborative approach to prioritizing this core value in every initiative.
Access to transmission is critical for any successful renewable energy project. The Transmission team ensures that Apex maintains its competitive edge in a constantly changing interconnection environment.
Data drives renewable energy development. Apex’s energy analysts interpret data using the latest technology to optimize the Apex portfolio, and our GIS team is integral to preparing spatial analyses and creating cartographic products that allow Apex to accurately assess wind and solar energy potential.
Hiring and Diversity
Apex is committed to building and maintaining a diverse and inclusive workforce, including (but not limited to) hiring, retaining, and promoting women and BIPOC (Black, Indigenous, and People of Color).
Over the past several years, we have improved on current commitments and forged new ones to support increased standards of representation, education, and accountability across all levels of our business. From celebrating and commemorating the contributions of various groups throughout the year and volunteering in the community to establishing our professional mentorship program and offering a free “Clean Energy Crash Course” to HBCU students, Apex works throughout the year to support diversity, equity, and inclusion in our workplace.
Apex requires all employees to engage in annual diversity, inclusion, and anti-bias training, in addition to anti-harassment and discrimination training. To ensure a broad range of applicants for our full-time positions, our HR team engages with a number of strategic partners (below). Our recruitment efforts have yielded positive results—more diverse applicants, more diverse hires, and a diverse intern program.
Empowering women’s leadership in clean energy
Energy remains one of the most gender-imbalanced sectors, and renewables aren’t immune. Apex and certain nonprofits—specifically, Women of Renewable Industries and Sustainable Energy (WRISE)—are intentionally striving to achieve a better balance.
Bringing opportunity home
After a decade in the Navy, Apexer Adam Carlson seized an opportunity to head back to his hometown—working as a project manager on the Ford County Wind facility.
Investing in future leaders
Over the years, Apex has worked diligently to curate a workplace culture that embodies our core values and attracts accomplished and motivated individuals. We have worked to not only drive visibility for opportunities at Apex, but also illuminate career paths throughout the broader industry. The notion of educating, supporting, and inspiring young leaders is a priority shared by Apex and the Ron Brown Scholar Program.
Frequently asked questions about jobs at Apex
What is the hiring process typically like?
Once you submit your information, it is shared with the appropriate human resources professional and hiring team. They compare your skills and experiences with the requirements of the position for which you have applied, as well as any other listed position. You will be contacted if you are selected for consideration.
The majority, if not all, of the interview process will be conducted either by phone or virtually, via Zoom. If there will be an in-person element, you will be notified early on in the process. Any and all travel expenses will be covered by Apex as necessary.
Do I have to have a background in renewable energy to work at Apex?
The diversity of profiles is something we pride ourselves on at Apex Clean Energy. Not everyone has a renewable energy background. We have employees who have joined us from a wide variety of industries, roles, and educational degrees. These different backgrounds provide the range of experience we seek to respond to the dynamic renewable energy industry.
What information should I include on my resume?
We want to hear about your latest accomplishments, your strengths, and how specific skills might be applied to the position you’ve applied for. Be sure to highlight your accomplishments in previous jobs—not just your duties. Do you have past projects to share? Include them as attachments or links to give us a better sense of your style.
While your resume may be more than one page, be sure your summaries are succinct and relevant—and that your most important information figures prominently on the first page.
How should I prepare for my interview(s) with Apex?
Review the job description and do a bit of research on the role, team, company, and our mission. Come with a few examples in mind that demonstrate your strengths, any questions you have about the opportunity, and a healthy dose of curiosity.
Do I really need to submit a cover letter?
Yes! That’s why we request one during the application process. Our team really enjoys a great cover letter that helps us get to know you by explaining how your prior experience and successes have prepared you for the role you’re pursuing.
Does Apex hire interns and new graduates?
Apex’s goal is to usher in the next generation of renewable energy professionals who will continue the critical work of actualizing our mission: to accelerate the shift to clean energy. Our approach is threefold: we give the interns real-world experience in the industry, offering the chance to work shoulder to shoulder with Apex’s exceptional subject-matter experts; we give them a 360-degree view of how to run a successful renewable energy company by introducing them to each and every one of our team leaders through weekly round table discussions; and we ensure that they are afforded ample social opportunities for establishing and maintaining their professional networks through our staff and their fellow interns. This tried-and-true approach has made for a world-class internship program that has seen thousands of applicants in recent years.
On average, from Apex’s past five intern cohorts, we’ve hired 18% of the students for full-time positions upon their graduation, and we aspire to increase that hiring rate annually.
What if I need a visa?
There are many jobs for which the company might be able to sponsor visas, depending on the requirements of the job and the qualifications of the candidate. Feel free to apply to any jobs you’re qualified for. If the role is appropriate for visa sponsorship and you’re qualified for the job, the recruiter will let you know how to proceed with the interview process.
