A great segway into the world of Solar. This is not new but we have now reached a time and place that the people are speaking out and requesting more green energy solutions introduced in our communities. No time like the present. This is the perfect time to jump into any opportunity to get involved. Heat Springs' learning platform can be introduced at any level to begin the process.

In solidarity, the women in solar become queens of solar. I appreciated the power in this course, as women thrive in a male-dominant industry.
