We spoke to Clenergy engineering manager, Yuneska, about what it’s like to work in solar energy and got her best advice for anyone who’d like to follow in her footsteps…

CwS: What’s a typical day at work like for you?
YH: I work for a solar mounting system manufacturer and my team’s role is to design the frames that fix the solar panels to the roof. As an engineering manager, my job includes concept design, calculations, talking to clients, meeting deadlines and talking to solar installers to help them solve issues while they are on the roof!

CwS: Favourite thing about your job?
YH: When a client gets their solar panels safely connected. Each installation makes a positive environmental impact.

CwS: And something you’re really proud of?
YH: I managed the design of the Melbourne Airport 12 MW solar farm; it’s known to be the largest at any airport in the country (so far).

CwS: Tip for students?
YH: The relationships you make with your peers, mentors and teachers are really important. Get involved in programs, clubs or community groups that focus on renewable energy or the environment.
