GRID Alternatives Seeks Applicants for new Solar Installer Training Program

From a warehouse in the Mt. Hope neighborhood, GRID Alternatives staff and dozens of volunteers head out into different areas of San Diego twice a week to install solar electric systems onto the rooftops of qualifying low-income families at little to no cost to the client, and they’re currently recruiting candidates for a brand new, paid solar installer training program.

“This is the first time we have ever done anything like this,” explains Executive Director, Paul Cleary. “It will be an ongoing program with room for up to 25 qualified individuals. We’re really excited to offer this opportunity to local people interested in a career in solar.”

Trainees will mainly assist with solar panel installations. They will also spend time learning about pre-construction processes. Upon the successful completion of the training, they will be placed in an installation-related job with a local solar company. To learn more visit www.gridalternatives.org/jobs and click on the ‘Solar Construction Intern – PAID’ under the San Diego section.
