My name is Marisa King, I’m currently a 3rd year business admin student at UC Irvine. I’m also minoring in psychology, as well as global sustainability, which is what peaked my interest in a sustainability-related career. I am interning as the Project Development Analyst Intern at SunPower. I joined the Energize Colleges program with the hopes of learning more about the energy sector and the types of jobs there are. I hope to discover a career position that suits me, which I can pursue down the road, preferably within the field of sustainability in general. At SunPower, I am working with their team to scope out and analyze prime locations for commercial solar panel installations. They install solar panels on rooftops, carports, and groundmounted areas of open land to supply residential homes or commercial warehouses and offices with clean energy. It has been fascinating to learn about their work and how efficiently they operate. I hope to contribute to their sales by helping them solidify at least one sale of solar panels to a commercial property.
