Emerald Cities Collaborative announces its first San Francisco Bay Area E-Contractor Academy to connect small, local contractors with contracting opportunities, and tools to increase business capacity. Enroll online now at link below and secure your spot!
The E-Contractor Academy provides a series of topical seminars, peer-to-peer learning and networking events that will help local contractors build careers and businesses by preparing you compete for, win and perform public and private sector energy efficiency, renewable energy and green building projects in the San Francisco Bay Area.
Emerald Cities Collaborative is a national nonprofit committed to helping small minority-, woman- and veteran-owned contractors and disadvantaged workers build careers in the energy efficiency, renewables and green building sectors. The clean energy and green infrastructure sector are growing rapidly in the nine-county Bay Area. There is growing demand for established clean energy projects like solar PV and solar thermal installation, and increasingly for emerging work on energy storage (battery), and electric vehicles (charging station) installation and maintenance.
The E-Contractor Academy in the San Francisco Bay Area is made possible through generous support of the Federal Home Loan Bank’s AHEAD program, Union Bank, Cahill Contractors and the SFPUC’s Contractors Assistance Center.
What: San Francisco/ Bay Area E-Contractor Academy is a seven-week training program for small minority, women and veteran contractors to perform green infrastructure projects across the San Francisco Bay Area.
Cost: E-Contractor Academy is provided at no cost to businesses due to the generosity of our sponsors.
