With COVID-19 causing schools to move to online and at-home learning, sPower, a renewable energy independent power producer (IPP), is offering teachers and students an opportunity to learn about the renewable energy industry and jobs within the field.

sPower is presenting a Virtual Renewable Energy Career Fair via a video, which you can find at the bottom of this post.

The video illustrates the some of the company’s employees’ early years and how they came into their renewable energy careers. The virtual career fair will allow students to connect and identify with renewable energy professionals and explore possible career options, according to sPower.

According to the U.S. Bureau Labor Statistics, solar installer and wind technician continue to be the fastest growing jobs in the country.

sPower also offers a Careers in Renewable Energy presentation as another virtual learning opportunity. This program is available via virtual conference to educators and their students.

“In response to the COVID-19 crisis, educators throughout the US have been challenged with finding new ways to engage students while teaching online,” said Remy Pangle, Director/Education Manager of James Madison University’s Center for the Advancement of Sustainable Energy. “This video and complementary materials are a wonderful resource for educators to bring awareness of career opportunities in the burgeoning renewable energy industry.”
