Outreach Programs

Solar Energy International is committed to changing the world by teaching others how to use renewable energy and sustainable building techniques. Through our outreach programs, SEI works with grassroots and development organizations around the world to promote sustainability and improve quality of life. We also work to educate schoolchildren and teachers about wise energy use and renewable energy sources and careers.

Solar In the Schools -- High-energy educational outreach for K-12 students and educators. Solar In the Schools delivers classroom presentations, teacher training workshops and public appearances, using hands-on renewable energy activities to engage and inspire.

Native American Program -- SEI works with Native Americans to help them satisfy their energy and housing needs with renewable energy and natural building.  SEI works with Native American NGOs and non-profit organizations and has trained people from the Western Shoshone, Skull Valley Goshute, Lakota Sioux, Yurok, Zuni, Hopi, and Chippewa Nations.

Heather Andrews Scholarship Fund/ Women's Program -- Offering womens' scholarships to attend technical training in a supportive learning atmosphere and help bring more women into the renewable energy field.

Walt Ratterman Scholarship Fund/ International Program -- Walt Ratterman was a solar advocate who worked tirelessly to bring solar electricity to people who desperately need it around the world.  This scholarship fund will allow people from developing countries to attend SEI workshops to bring this crucial knowledge back to their communities.  We strive to train decision-makers, technicians, and end-users in order to create sustainable renewable energy projects. 

SEI Veterans and Active Duty Military Training Program -- Solar Energy International (SEI) is pleased to announce a truly inspirational scholarship and outreach program for veterans and active duty military personnel. SEI has experienced a dramatic increase in recent years of veterans who wish to attend SEI training and are looking for funding opportunities to take full advantage of all that SEI has to offer.
