Building Solar; Strengthening Communities
Creating local jobs does more than grow the economy – it also builds community-rooted project support.
At Sun Tribe, we’re proud of the strong relationships we’ve built with neighborhood suppliers, contractors, employers, and stakeholders – and we’re committed to creating local jobs in every community in which we work.
Sun Tribe desires to further fuel the engine of workforce development – growing local solar capacity through training, outreach, and a rigorous approach to high-quality standards.
We also support the Solar Hands-On Instructional Network of Excellence (SHINE). SHINE is a training program that helps Virginia residents get jobs at solar arrays being built in their local neighborhoods. Through SHINE, we further inclusive, solar workforce development and equip Virginians with the tools and knowledge they need to enter the sector.
