About the Position:

This is a position as a member on a 4-person “strike team” dedicated to the installation of ground based solar panels. Scope of work includes stringing – wiring the array, connecting panels together and to inverters; people proofing panels – installing wire mesh to rear of panels to prevent tampering by public; trenching and laying ground wiring – using a trencher to dig trenches to lay conduit pipe and wiring from array to inverters and connection to power grid. No work with live wires, Shaw Solar electrical technicians will test loads and connect live wires. Members will work alongside heavy machinery and utilize a variety of tools (including hand tools and power tools) to install ground arrays that will provide solar power to members of the local community. Shaw Solar employees will provide on-the-job training related to scope of work, as well as more technical and specialized skills that technicians need to know in the industry. Career pathway opportunities available, but not guaranteed, for successful participants. Members will work 10-hour days, Monday-Thursday. Work force development will be provided by experienced crew leaders and Shaw Solar.
