Solar Ready Vets Webinar Info

The solar industry stands to benefit from a more diverse, robust and resilient workforce as we continue to emerge from COVID19 disruptions and expand our industry’s role as a mainstream part of the American energy sector. Veterans and transitioning service members have the leadership experience and critical thinking skills that are essential in today’s fast-changing world.


SEIA, The Solar Foundation, NABCEP and the U.S. Chamber of Commerce are partners on Solar Ready Vets, a U.S. Department of Energy grant-funded program to support the transition and hiring of U.S. military talent into the solar industry. 

Learn how your company can gain access to the highly-skilled military veteran workforce through the Solar Ready Vets Fellowship and the Solar Ready Vets Network.
