7/15: Renewable Energy Industry Fellowship

Renewable Energy Industry Fellowship

A solar power company in the NYC area is offering a Fellowship for a recent college graduate interested in the Renewable Energy Industry, particularly its policy and financial aspects. The fellowship will provide a hands-on experience with project development and financing. It will also focus on policy research and analysis to support the work of a union coalition supporting a “Green New Deal” approach to combating climate change.

The focus of the company, American Solar Partners, LLC, is the residential and commercial solar power market in the Northeast, including the development of new models of community solar and methods of combining solar and storage. In addition to policy work, fellows will be exposed to the practical aspects of solar power and learn the basics of solar power technology, storage, and project development.

Fellowships will last 6 months and will be part time or full time depending on the applicant’s situation. It will carry a stipend plus reimbursement of commuting expenses. At the end of their fellowship, there may be an offer of a permanent position. Fellows will be supervised by senior ASP staff and mentored by the founder of the company. Ideal candidates should have good verbal and quantitative skills, the ability to work independently, and a commitment to addressing climate change.

We expect to offer up to two fellowships starting in the summer of 2019. Resume, writing sample, and two references required for application. Submit to: lee@americansolarpartners.com
