Solar accounted for 50% of all new electricity-generating capacity added to the US grid in the first quarter of 2022. The growing industry is an opportunity for professionals in engineering, building and construction, architecture and other fields to expand their education and serve the increasing demand, and now that ongoing education could be covered by new funding.
SOLV Energy and Solar Energy International (SEI) announced their partnership to create the SEI Women in Solar program to empower women from all over the world through solar energy training, networking, mentorship, and clean energy employer / job connections. The goal of this program is to create a global network of women who are considering career pathways in the clean energy sector and to support solar professionals actively working in the industry who want to take their careers to the next level. The program consists of free access to the SEI Women in Solar Online Community for career resources and networking, a mentorship webinar series, and scholarships for SEI’s tuition based online courses and annual SEI Women in Solar Hands-on Lab Week.
