Kathy Swartz, Executive Director, Solar Energy International

Renewable energy is a game changer that requires properly trained people who know how to design, install, maintain, and operate systems. It requires ethical salespeople, financiers, and developers. Properly trained people will help prevent mistakes that affect the life and output of systems.”

“At Solar Energy International, we have worked for over 25 years to meet this need by providing high-quality training for the solar industry, including people entering the industry and people already in solar. We are proud to be part of the team of training institutions around the country working with The Solar Foundation on the Solar Training Network, which is linking employers, job seekers, and training providers to help ensure the long-term health of the solar industry.”

The Solar Foundation leads the Solar Training Network, a program that connects solar job seekers with training providers and employment opportunities. With your support, The Solar Foundation is bridging the gap between supply and demand in the solar workforce.
