Devin will provide a summary of the organization's mandate and story, along with two projects they are working on.
A unique training program being developed for Alberta that will see tradespeople receiving hands on training during the installation of solar PV, solar heating, electrical vehicle charging stations and energy retrofits at high schools. With a large public engagement and high school curriculum component, the Solar Skills Program is about more than just training tradespeople -- it's about getting all levels of community engaged in energy issues.
