Solar Ready Vets: Preparing Veterans for the Solar Workforce

Posted by in Home Improvement Tips, on September 18, 2015

Solar Ready Vets, created by the Department of Energy’s SunShot Initiative, connects our nation’s transitioning veterans to the growing solar energy industry. As these active duty service members prepare to enter the civilian world, the Solar Ready Vets program offers them the opportunity to learn about all aspects of the solar industry in a five- to six-week course. Upon graduation, SunShot arranges for the veterans to interview with some of the top solar companies in the industry, and are prepared for careers as solar photovoltaic (PV) system installers, sales representatives, system inspectors, and other solar-related occupations. In this video, hear from Vincent Curry, a former Marine and Solar Ready Vets graduate who works in the solar industry, about how the course prepared him for success. Also hear from DOE’s Deputy Secretary, Assistant Secretary for Energy Efficiency and Renewable Energy, and the director of the SunShot Initiative.
