SolarCity is expanding its Nevada presence with a new, 13,000-square foot regional training center in West Las Vegas. This flagship training center, SolarCity's fifth facility since entering the Silver State in 2013, will make Nevada the regional epicenter for SolarCity's workforce development. This facility is expected to train as many as 4,000 workers a year with the skills they need to succeed in the energy workforce of the future.
"Renewable, sustainable energy is the future of Southern Nevada," said Representative Dina Titus of Nevada's First Congressional District. "SolarCity's new workforce training center will provide opportunities for people from across the region to learn new skills, contribute to our economy, and build a better, cleaner world for generations to come."
Senator Aaron Ford, Democratic Leader of the Nevada Senate, Senator Ruben Kihuen, and other state and local officials joined SolarCity leadership to cut the ribbon at the new facility.
SolarCity already employs over 2,000 Nevadans. SolarCity's regional training center will bring in new hires from around the Mountain West to be trained as solar installers, electricians, and other jobs in the growing solar industry.
