JULY 29:
Join us for a webinar to learn about solar industry training, credentialing and career development resources for veterans!

Veterans make outstanding candidates for solar careers

Strong leadership skills and technical aptitudes make veterans a valuable source of talent as solar continues to lead job growth in the American energy sector.

The Solar Foundation leads two initiatives to expand veteran solar career pathways. Through direct impact and capacity building efforts, we’re advancing a nationwide pipeline of military talent into technical and leadership roles in the American solar workforce

With funding from the US Department of Energy, the Solar Ready Vets Network connects transitioning military service members and veterans of the US Armed Forces with industry training, credentialing, and professional development opportunities.

The Solar Ready Vets Fellowship

Through the Hiring Our Heroes Corporate Fellowship Program, service-members from select military bases are placed into on-the-job training programs to facilitate a transition to civilian solar careers.

Solar Opportunities and Readiness (SOAR) Initiative

The SOAR Initiative engages industry leaders, certified training providers and regional career development networks to meet solar workforce needs and expand solar career pathways for veterans.
