“Attention to workforce development efforts often fall behind policy, regulatory, and sales needs. This toolkit is offering an industry-wide resource that is greatly needed by solar employers, especially small and medium sized companies that don’t have a dedicated HR staff.  We are hopeful this is the first of many workforce development resources that help propel this great industry forward.”
