SEIA is an implementing partner of The Solar Training Network, and we are thrilled to work with a diverse group of stakeholders to advance workforce development efforts for the solar industry. There are more than 250,000 workers employed by solar, and in 2016 1 out of every 50 new jobs created in the U.S. was a solar job. The Solar Training Network helps continue that rapid growth by building connections that will create long-lasting careers to help power the next generation of energy leaders.
It is critically important for SEIA’s mission that the solar industry continues to create well-paying American jobs coast to coast. As the national trade association for solar, we are in a unique position to make connections between industry leaders and other stakeholders, such as training institutions and workforce investment boards, to facilitate knowledge transfers and make it easier for companies to find qualified workers.
