Solar Richmond believes that prolonged transitional work opportunities are key to getting our graduates permanent work in solar. In the fall of 2009, Solar Richmond piloted a 10-week, paid solar internship program which will launch in full in 2010.
Solar Richmond provides opportunities to Bay Area residents to get hand-on experience in construction and solar installation. In the past, Solar Richmond, in partnership with RichmondBUILD, has offered 13 weeks of construction and solar installation training which prepares participants to enter the workforce upon graduation. Additionally, SR provides job opportunities through our staffing agency to local solar companies. Many graduates have gone on to full-time employment with local installers including SolarCity, Sungevity, Sun Light & Power, and Sun's Free Solar.
