DoD Taps Florida’s Premier Solar PV School for Veterans Training

No fuel trucks to be targets

The Department of Veterans Affairs has recently selected US Solar Institute (USSI) to help train its service members to safely install PV technology.  As the country’s first dedicated, licensed photovoltaic college to receive this distinction, USSI will play an important role in the post-service career training that has become a staple feature of the GI Bill. When you add in solar PV installation training programs like USSI, it becomes clear that the Department of Defense is committed to meeting its target of 25% renewable energy by 2025.
Although USSI has become an official Veterans Affairs partner, it also provides solar PV training to active duty personnel and civilians as well. For a complete list of training courses, visit
