Solar Ready Vets Preparing Our Veterans to Join the Growing Solar Workforce

The solar industry is an important source of employment for returning veterans, who comprise 10% of the solar workforce, exceeding the 7% percent of veterans in the broader US workforce.  With nearly 200,000 veterans exiting service annually, their skills, leadership abilities, and technical training are in high demand, and well-matched to the growing hiring needs of the solar energy industry.

Solar Ready Vets provides our transitioning service members (soon-to-be vets) with solar industry training and the opportunity to interview with some of the nation’s leading solar companies. Every graduate of our program has gotten at least one solar job offer.

The video features Vincent Curry, a veteran of the Marine Corps, who after graduating from the very first cohort of Solar Ready Vets, landed a job as a safety and quality coach and couldn’t be happier.
