Last September, Ecotech Institute sent Zerosun Creative's film crew to Fort Morgan, Colorado, to film Ecotech students in training installing solar on the Sol Naciente affordable housing project. Ecotech Institute in Aurora, Colorado, is the first and only college entirely focused on preparing graduates for careers in energy with hands-on training in solar, wind, power utility and more. On a brilliant autumn day last year, Ecotech students joined volunteers from the community, Team Leaders, and volunteers from the National Renewable Energy Laboratory (NREL) to help bring solar to 50 low-income families in the agricultural industry.
Ecotech Institute's film about their solar program depicts trainees getting professional, hands-on experience with GRID as part of our job training partnership.
