At FirstLight, our employees are our most valuable resource and we strive to provide a dynamic, innovative and rewarding place to work.

The FirstLight Difference

FirstLight Power is a leading clean power producer and energy storage company in the northeast with a portfolio that includes more than 1.4 GW of pumped-hydro storage, battery storage, hydroelectric generation, and solar generation – notably the largest clean energy generation portfolio in New England today.

FirstLight offers highly competitive compensation and benefits packages in addition to flexible work environments.

We are particularly proud of our deep roots in the regions where we work. Some of our equipment and facilities were installed over 100 years ago and are still in operation today, while our future development opportunities include some of the most up-to-date technologies. That said, we would not be where we are today without the thoughtful, committed, and hard-working teams of employees that we have.

Our mission and vision is to accelerate the decarbonization of the electric grid by owning, operating, and integrating large-scale renewable energy and storage assets to meet the region’s growing clean energy needs and to deliver an electric system that is clean, reliable, affordable, and equitable.

Building upon our industry-leading experience in operating large-scale renewable energy and storage assets, FirstLight’s vision and commitment to leading the energy industry transformation make us uniquely positioned to navigate rapidly evolving market conditions and grow our portfolio throughout North America.

To underscore our focus and commitment to a diverse workforce, we have joined…

“If I had to choose a single word to describe the corporate culture at FirstLight, it would be collaborative. All of the people that I’ve worked with are open to sharing knowledge and specifically their understanding of renewable energy policy, operations, and markets, which makes the company not only a great place to both work at, but one where I can continue to learn and grow as a professional.
