In February 2014, Operation Free and The Solar Foundation®, released a joint report, Veterans in Solar: Securing America’s Energy Future , which established the most complete understanding to date of veterans employment in the American solar industry.
Through this collaboration, we are able to see – with hard numbers – that veterans are huge assets to the clean energy economy. Veterans bring unparalleled technical skills and a relentless focus on accomplishing the mission. And they view their work in clean energy as a continuation of their service.
For this reason, veterans make ideal candidates for employment in the rapidly growing solar industry – which to continue expanding and strengthening our national security, will require access to a highly skilled workforce and recruitment of talented business leaders.
