Smart Solar Power

Workforce Challenge

Smart Solar Power, an electric solar power installer, has seen a 40 percent increase in sales, creating a need to hire more staff. Owner Don Young was referred to the no-cost recruitment and training services offered by the San Bernardino County Workforce Investment Board.

Workforce Solution

Through WIB services, Smart Solar Power was able to tap into the federally funded On-the-Job Training program, which provides partial wage reimbursement for the designated training period.

Outcomes & Benefits

Within the last year, WIB services has made it possible for Don to hire two solar panel installers and two office processors. He said, “I was surprised to hear that my company would be reimbursed for a lot of the cost of training new employees during their first three months of employment. That is a huge benefit for a small company like ours, both from an operational and financial point of view.”
