DOE Awards NABCEP Funding for Program With Veterans

A partnership between NABCEP, The Solar Foundation, The U.S. Chamber of Commerce/Hiring Our Heroes, SEIA, and Cypress Creek Renewables was recently selected to receive a $2 million award from the U.S. Department of Energy Solar Energy Technologies Office (SETO) to support an advanced and highly qualified solar workforce.

This new program will include a groundbreaking effort to support solar industry apprenticeships for hundreds of transitioning military veterans, preparing them for leadership roles in a rapidly growing industry. The program will also provide expert assistance to help the solar industry leverage workforce development resources and hire more workers from underserved communities.
