Green Jobs: Positions Available

ADVANCED PHOTOVOLTAIC RESEARCHER
Department of Defense Grant Writer Wanted

CleanAndGreenJobs is applying for a $3.888M Air Force R&D grant for “state of the art” Solar photovoltaic development for the supercomputer at the Maui Tech Park. Our goal, in addition to supporting improvement of PV technology, is to implement our green collar training program. We work with returning Iraqi veterans, recently released prisoners and youth at risk. The Air Force Grant would pay for 12 months of R&D on solar pv that has already reached a technology readiness level (TRL) of 6 or 7. This would be followed by a 3 month evaluation. After this period, the fate of the solar panels is open. This could be the chance to power the Kihei Wastewater Treatment plant, and create a “green collar” training program for Maui. If you or anyone you know is interested in this projects and has the above skills, please contact Netra Halperin, Consultant for CleanAndGreenJobs @ (808) 359-1673 or email netra@maui08.com
