Solar Energy International aims to educate 12,000 people in renewable energy in 2012!

To do it we will:

  • train trainers
  • train solar installers and technicians
  • teach kids in all grade levels to understand where electricity comes from -and that it isn’t limitless through our Solar In the Schools program 
  • show people in remote villages and communities in Africa, Asia, and South and Central America how to harness the energy of the sun, wind and water around them so that their children can read their school books after the sun goes down.
  • train American women to work as Solar Suitcase Ambassadors around the world- delivering the small plug-and-play solar electric systems to maternal health workers in rural communities, who will in turn use them for basic obstetric care, significantly reducing the 350,000 deaths of women and millions of newborn babies each year.
  • teach Native Americans to install and maintain solar systems while performing projects on reservations
  • continue to offer the free online Introduction to Renewable Energy course in both Spanish and English which is moderated regularly by SEI staff that can answer student questions
  • keep the the SEI Lending Library of books, tools and equipment available to teachers that want to bring renewable energy into the classroom
