Job Overview:

Electrical Engineer


Who We Are:

We are driven by a passion to design and manufacture the highest quality grid-scale power converters available.  Rooted in this passion, we provide our customers with inverters and DC/DC converters from 250 kW to 6 MW.  EPC’s products are designed in house and manufactured in the USA.  Power electronics are the core technology behind decarbonization. With major growth sectors such as renewable energy, energy storage, and electric vehicle charging, EPC is growing fast.
