The Advanced Green Technologies Team
In the solar construction industry, it’s not only how the job’s performed, it’s who the people are, doing it. Their skills, their involvement, their professional demeanor. Hundreds of dedicated individuals make up the team at Advanced Green Technologies, and not only do they want your respect, they want you to like them. “Nice” is important to us. As is “courteous, efficient, exacting, honest, ethical, flexible, accommodating, logistical, knowledgeable.” There’s not an “it’s-not-my-job” attitude in the bunch. In fact, every job is everyone’s job. So there’s always someone there with an answer or who knows how to get something resolved. We work smart and safe. We train and train some more. With our team, anything and everything is humanly possible.
