Currently, we are developing the Hozho Homes Program to offer affordable energy access to Native American homes currently without grid-tied electricity. One component of this program is solar workforce training to provide the skills needed to install and maintain off-grid photovoltaics systems. The workforce program may include introduction to off-grid solar, or more advanced courses for different skill levels.

We are partnering with Remote Energy to provide virtual training that provides a foundation to solar photovoltaics and DC solar fundamentals.
