At a time when the rural Southeast is struggling to recover from the 2008-2009 recession and the decline of the tobacco and textile industries, the solar industry is putting people back to work.
We strive to source 100 percent of our construction labor from the communities where our solar farms are built. Each O2 emc solar project creates work for more than 50 local residents during the construction phase.
Each worker receives valuable training and hands-on experience leading to a unique skill set in a growing industry. Many workers have gone to work on additional jobs or have been hired by contractors to work full-time.
