Solar Ready Vets Training at Tec-Smart, Malta

SUNY Canton CREST is offering the U.S. Department of Energy's Solar Ready Vets training program in collaboration with Hudson Valley Community College at Tec Smart in Malta.

According to the Solar Foundation’s Solar Job Census 2014, the solar industry is adding jobs at a rate of more than 20 times faster than the overall economy. Solar employment in New York State grew more than 40 percent in 2014, adding nearly 2,100 jobs. There currently are 359 solar companies in New York State, employing more than 7,000 New Yorkers.

SUNY Canton President Zvi Szafran said, "The Solar Ready Vets program is a perfect extension of what SUNY Canton does best. Through this program, we actively continue our commitment to veterans and their families in addition to focusing on environmental sustainability and renewable energy technologies. Most importantly, it demonstrates our commitment to providing career ready training in our academic programs and through our Career Ready Education and Success Training (CREST) Center for Workforce Development. We thank Governor Cuomo, the U.S. Department of Energy, CREST Center staff and all parties involved for implementing this important program."
