Building a national, highly-qualified, well-trained clean energy workforce takes time. And work. And vision. Now, after five years, we’re seeing stunning results from the confluence of the work of innovative instructors, supportive administrators at educational institutions, and long-term vision from DOE’s SunShot Initiative.
IREC’s work developing shared solar programs is opening options for millions of Americans who don’t own a home or have a sunny rooftop or other renewable resource on-site. With this Shared Solar Program Catalog IREC and SEPA are keeping track of shared renewables programs to help utilities and others interested in starting a program of their own.
For clean energy education/training programs serious about earning the most recognized mark of quality in clean energy, comes a marathon-inspired training that makes preparation for the coveted IREC Credential a less daunting process. IREC’s new plan helps programs prepare to apply and strengthen their training programs gradually over 16 weeks. And it’s FREE.
