Projects + TRainings
We'll be partnering with the #1 solar electric training organization in the United States - Solar Energy International (SEI). Two separate weeks of training at RCREC, then a two week stay in Colorado at SEI headquarters where you'll take your solar certification testing upon completion. After these four courses are complete you'll be the trainer for your first supervised workshop in October. All expenses paid including lodging and food, transportation to RCREC and SEI excluded. Some solar experience necessary. Click here for more about the Solar Tribal Train the Trainer Project!
SEI Professional Solar Course 101
(Sept. 21st-25th) - Solar electric training at RCREC (No previous solar installation training necessary).
Mobile Power Station
Training where we will train tribal members how to make both trailer sized and handcart sized mobile solar power stations. This workshop also includes learning how to make simple and inexpensive solar powered LED Lights in a bucket. All three combined trainings are designed for remote and/or off-grid construction projects and camps.

From approximately May 20 to July 10 and possibly longer, Red Cloud Renewable will be building new professional level Solar Labs stations to provide more higher level training for our T4 and other renewable energy students. We will also be adding in a new solar array for use by the Red Cloud School and have several small construction and campus improvement projects planned. We are looking for some interns to help with these improvement projects.
There is no funding available for students, but we can cover your food and lodging. The project will be led by Henry Red Cloud, Executive Director of Red Cloud Renewable and Johnny Weiss, one of the founders of Solar Energy International and RCR’s Director of Special Projects and will likely include others from Remote Energy and the greater solar industry. So great teachers and very real and impressive solar experience!
