We need accountability for diversity and inclusion in the clean energy industry. The clean energy industry has an accountability problem when it comes to inclusion. Despite a growing number of programs and commitments to diversify the renewable energy workforce, the culture of the industry remains hostile to women and people of color.
This International Women's Day, we would like to celebrate each and every woman we have the honor of learning and working with. In particular, we would like to highlight the women who are a part of our International Program. Keep on reading to meet them!
Enphase has worked with GRID Alternatives as a philanthropic partner since 2010 and as a major national equipment partner since 2012. Throughout 2021, GRID has continued to use Enphase inverters on many of our solar installs. Thank you to Enphase for their partnership and continued support for GRID’s mission.
In 2021, GRID launched a 5-week hands-on solar installation training program for women in Nicaragua called Installation Basics Training (IBT). Sixteen women graduated from the program in 2021 and seven have already been hired in the local solar industry.
