Paonia, Colorado, December 9, 2015 – Solar Energy International (“SEI”) and Dividend Solar are announcing a partnership to expand the reach of SEI’s technical training programs to Dividend Solar’s network of solar installation partners. SEI’s industry-leading training will help accelerate the continued education of solar installation professionals, and continue to raise the bar for solar workmanship in the U.S.

With a presence in over 30 states across the U.S., Dividend Solar offers the $0-down EmpowerLoan which enables homeowners to maximize the benefits of going solar, while also enjoying hassle-free performance guarantees and warranties.

The partnership between SEI and Dividend Solar will offer discounted access on SEI’s courses and training sessions to Dividend Solar’s network of solar installers.  SEI offers online courses, classroom- and lab-based courses at their HQ in Paonia, CO, and a variety of customized trainings that can be conducted at a location of the customer’s choosing.

“SEI works closely with industry partners from across the entire spectrum of the solar energy sector.  Partnering with companies like Dividend Solar who are providing innovative ways to give communities and individuals access to clean energy is definitely aligned with SEI’s vision of a world powered by renewable energy.  We applaud their company and all solar professionals who seek to deepen their technical knowledge in this dynamic career field,” says Kathy Swartz, Solar Energy International’s Executive Director.
