Pivot Energy, Colorado’s leading community solar developer, announced it has donated $90,000 to Bright Futures, a Weld county workforce initiative designed to remove barriers for students that prevent them from pursuing higher education and obtaining gainful employment. The donation will be used to help a minimum of 45 local students pursue training and advanced educational opportunities.
As a triple bottom line company, Pivot Energy works to ensure their business activities have a positive impact on the planet, people, and profit. The company recently awarded the Pueblo Hispanic Education Foundation with a $50,000 donation for similar scholarships to provide advanced training opportunities in the renewable energy industry for students in Southern Colorado.
“Pivot’s commitment to strengthening the local communities that host our solar projects has been a priority for us since day one,” said Jon Fitzpatrick, vice president of project development at Pivot Energy. “Although the solar industry’s workforce is rapidly growing, it’s important for us to help create equitable opportunities for anyone interested in the clean energy industry. We are thrilled to collaborate with Bright Futures to grow the solar workforce in our home state and beyond.” The full story is located on Cision’s website.
