From the GEO Archives: Providing the Skills for a Fresh Start

This month we are sharing a program that has been underway since 2015, and continues today. Beginning five years ago, GEO and its business members have partnered with the Ohio Department of Rehabilitation and Corrections (ODRC) to train offenders through the “Understanding Photovoltaics” program and endeavored to place them in the Ohio solar industry after release.

From the GEO Archives: Promoting Green Collar Jobs

We know that clean energy creates jobs. Growth in the renewable energy, energy efficiency, and clean transportation industries has outpaced other economic sectors in recent years. We also know that the industry took a hit in the recent pandemic shutdown, with as much as a 17 percent job loss nationwide. Given demand for energy that reduces costs and addresses climate change, forecasters expect a rebound in the employment numbers as the economy reopens.

A Call For Racial, Social, and Environmental Justice

We need to join together to protect and preserve both. We need to listen to communities whose voices have long gone unheard, learn from their experiences, and include racial and social justice in environmental conversations. Green Energy Ohio is proud to partner in those endeavors and committed to fight for all our precious resources every day.
