Go Green, Stay NATiVE
It’s time to take your power back Texans!
NATiVE Solar has partnered with KXAN’s Go Green initiative to share ways we all can help to protect our environment. Our mission is to provide simple tips on how we can foster a healthier living environment in Central Texas and beyond.
Climate and Energy Reporting
Each month NATiVE Solar will join Kristen Currie as she features different topics that will help educate viewers on everyday actions they can do to reduce their carbon footprint. May’s topic is composting!
Studio 512 and Beyond
NATiVE Solar will also be featured each month in a segment on KXAN’s Studio 512 lifestyle show where we’ll dive deeper into renewable energy trends, the role of EV’s and Vehicle to Grid (V2G), green career pathways and even customer testimonials. You can also catch these PSA’s on KNVA and KBVO.
Though Go Green is specific to Central Texas, our impact reaches far beyond our local community. NATiVE Solar brings almost two decades of net zero home building, solar, storage and sustainable designs into our changing lifestyles.
Dedication to Solar Jobs and Our Community
In addition to the Go Green initiative, NATiVE Solar recognizes the need for construction workers and cultivates local programs with access to immediate jobs, apprenticeships and technical certifications. Are you a former US veteran or simply looking for green career pathways? Are you interested in a virtual or onsite Town Hall?
Solar Austin and Alamo Colleges
In 2020, NATiVE partnered with Solar Austin to launch their Pathways to Clean Energy Careers Program and never looked back. This program focuses on diversity, equity and inclusion by recruiting women and students of color into the growing clean energy industry. In May we joined Alamo Colleges (San Antonio) to hire federal work-study students as PT employees with federal funds to supplement student wages.
Green Careers Dallas
NATiVE Solar’s Dallas team then partnered with this program that provides rooftop solar installation training for hard-to-employ individuals, such as those with a criminal record, or those looking for a job change. They partner with local Solar businesses to then employ participants once trained. NATiVE will seek to expand this program to include a sales training pathway as well.
Solar Ready Vets Network
The Solar Foundation leads the Solar Ready Vets Network with funding from the US Department of Energy. This program connects military service members and veterans with career pathways in the rapidly growing solar industry. To stay current on resources and opportunities for veterans related to solar training and careers, please join the network at SolarReadyVeterans.org
NATiVE Town Hall
Are you tired of sifting through social media and “free solar” ads?
To demystify solar, NATiVE Solar has developed informational sessions to inform HOAs, communities and consumers about the reality and opportunities with renewable energy. Either virtual or onsite, local teams provide educational sessions to educate community members. This is a conscious effort to expand consumer knowledge and awareness of misinformation.
Stay tuned in to your local KXAN channel to see NATiVE’s participation in the Go Green campaign. You can also visit NATiVE’s website to learn more about our community initiatives and going solar!
