Pacheco Company has teamed with Solar Energy International (SEI) to provide Renewable Energy educational classes on Pacheco Company U.S. General Services Administration (GSA) schedule GS07F-0286W.  Class times and schedules procured off GSA Schedule can be viewed on

Pacheco Company is a service-disabled, veteran-owned small business (SDVOSB). The GSA establishes long-term government-wide contracts with commercial firms to provide access to millions of commercial products and services at volume discount pricing. 

Pacheco Company is a complete design, building contractor, and supplier of solar, wind, and hydro products, LED lighting and energy saving services.  Employees bring experience from SBA 8a programs.

Pacheco Company having been asked by government buyers if they could also provide education for these systems decided to teamed with SEI because SEI is one of the longest running and most respected organizations in the solar industry that offers online, in-person, and hands-on training in a variety of renewable energy technologies for those seeking professional technical training.

“SEI is honored to be teaming with Pacheco Company on the GSA schedule. President Obama has made renewable energy a priority within the federal government and this opens up opportunities for SEI to provide our industry-leading renewable energy training to individuals from all departments within the government" stated Kathy Swartz, SEI’s Executive Director.

Swartz went onto to say, "Whether a specialized trainer within the Air Force, a maintenance technician on an Army base, a nursery manager in the US Forest Service, or a program manager within the Department of Energy, SEI offers customized online and in-person trainings to meet the renewable energy goals of each Department.”

SEI will also be promoting the GSA and the opportunity to team up with Pacheco Company through their Military Veterans and Active Duty Outreach Program. 

Christopher Turek, Director of Marketing and Alumni Relations said, "A few years ago we announced a truly inspirational scholarship and outreach program for veterans and active duty military personnel. We offer a unique scholarship opportunity for these heroes to get started in our full training path, SEI's Solar Professionals Certificate Program."

Turek went on to say, "SEI has experienced a dramatic increase in recent years of active duty military service members and other federal employees who wish to attend SEI training and are looking for funding opportunities to take full advantage of all that SEI has to offer.  Being on the GSA schedule will help active duty and other federal employees access our training offerings in a more streamlined manner."
