Solar Ready Vets seeks to train and place service members transitioning to the civilian workforce into the solar energy industry. The program prepares veterans for careers as solar photovoltaic (PV) system installers, sales representatives, system inspectors, and other solar-related occupations. Solar Ready Vets is enabled by the U.S. Department of Defense's SkillBridge initiative, which allows exiting military personnel to pursue civilian job training, employment skills training, apprenticeships, and internships up to six months prior to their separation. Solar Ready Vets trains active military personnel who are in "transitioning military" status and are within a few months of leaving military service and becoming a veteran.
