Sunwealth’s mission is to invest in the future of energy, generating financial, social and environmental returns for investors and communities. Sunwealth sees the future of energy as decentralized, decarbonized and inclusive. They make it possible for individuals and organizations to invest in that future, bringing new capital and solar access to markets overlooked by traditional solar investors.

One student will have the opportunity to work rotationally at Sunwealth with each of their departments, which will give students an understanding of the company’s core functions, while allowing them to get hands on with some of the key tasks within each group.
