Hampshire Power is an emerging Community Shared Solar leader, known for providing high-quality commercial and industrial off-takers to a growing client list of Solar asset owners. These asset owners and commercial customers have come to expect personalized, knowledgeable, and friendly customer service and Hampshire Power is committed to delivering on this reputation.

A strong focus on customer service drives one of our newest employees, Community Shared Solar Account Specialist Melissa Rivera.

Melissa earned a Bachelor’s Degree in Marketing and Communications from the University of Massachusetts. With a robust background in the energy industry and a passion for the energy transition, she has hit the ground running at Hampshire Power, helping customers understand the complexities of the Massachusetts Community Shared Solar program.

Melissa is a dedicated professional with over 20 years of combined experience in marketing, business administration, and customer service. She has demonstrated excellent communication skills as well as outstanding organizational, interpersonal, and problem-solving skills. Her expertise was developed by managing multiple projects and tasks under high pressure with high attention to detail.

Before joining Hampshire Power, Melissa worked as a customer service representative at Columbia Gas of Massachusetts. In this position, Melissa demonstrated her ability to deal with challenging customer service issues and was responsible for resolving and following up on complex cases.

Melissa’s new role at Hampshire Power encompasses many of the same responsibilities she has handled with excellence in past positions: a combination of customer service, client onboarding and care, and marketing.

Melissa is part of a growing diverse team focused on energy transition.

“Our services center around sustainability, which makes me feel good about working here,” Melissa said. “I believe I am making a positive contribution.”

“The team makes it a priority to provide the best services to our clients. It’s a diverse and welcoming team; while I’m new to the company, so far, I feel comfortable and enjoy working here. I truly value what the company stands for and what we’re building together.”

Melissa is a vital part of Hampshire Power’s commitment to each client.

“At the end of the day, I’m certainly all about the customer and building trust, excellent communication, and reliability,” she said.

Hampshire Power is excited to welcome Melissa to the team and share her talents with our growing client base.
