The Solar Living Institute was thrilled to participate in Solar for All California, a collaborative project that will stimulate the local economy, create new green collar jobs, and reduce energy consumption in seven Northern California counties. As a key partner in the project, the SLI provided solar training and certification for 13 displaced and unemployed individuals to install solar photovoltaic systems on 150 low-income single family homes. 6 of the 13 individuals were referred through local workforce development agencies, including the Mendocino Private Industry Council and the California Indian Manpower Consortium.


The Solar Living Institute is a 501 (c)(3) educational nonprofit organization offering instruction in solar training and sustainable practices.  Founded in 1998, we have been providing professional solar training and a wide array of sustainability courses for 20 years. Our courses are taught by experienced practitioners who bring years of real world knowledge to the classroom with a focus on helping students prepare for job opportunities, start businesses, and live more sustainably.
