__________________________________________________________ SYCEO Community Energy Program Trainings are Happening Now! The goals of this energy efficiency and renewable energy project are to:
- Formally train and certify 30-60 Chumash community members in various building energy professions (including building performance assessments, energy efficiency retrofits and solar installations);
- Provide trainees with paid apprenticeship opportunities to gain relevant on-the-job experience under the guidance of qualified contractors; and
- Reduce the cost of energy efficiency and solar on tribal community homes and building both on- and off-reservation by funding the labor of apprentices and trainers to perform the work.
- evaluate the best system design
- obtain bids and negotiate system price
- explore financing options
- oversee the installation
- help you track energy and cost savings over time.
