Developing a Strong Solar Construction Workforce

Did you know that every hour, the sun produces enough energy to meet the global energy needs for an entire year? Solar energy is a relatively low risk fuel source that is most often free of pollution and noise as well as being almost in endless supply. Sounds like a simple solution to our energy needs right? While the technology and fuel supply are readily available, a trained solar workforce is in high demand. It is essential that solar construction personnel maintain a high level of expertise and safe practices, which makes locating experienced talent a difficult task.

Recently the U.S. Department of Energy announced that they were supporting the PVOT or Photovoltaic Online Training program. The program is a free web-based training program that was created for code officials who grant permits and perform field inspections for residential solar installations. The program includes training on everything from electrical requirements to ways to decrease the time span of the permitting processes. Currently the training program is compliant with the National Electrical Code requirements. You can learn more about the training program and curriculum here.

While training is essential, the demand for experienced talent will remain high. Experienced solar workforce personnel are hard to find and most times even harder to entice away from their current employer. Trillium has an excellent team of industry trained professionals in solar power construction staffing with thousands of candidates that are subject to Trillium’s industry leading screening process. Our skilled tradespeople are interviewed, referenced, and screened to ensure that your project is staffed with the best tradespeople available.
