CATEC Selected for Dominion Energy’s Solar for Students Program

CATEC recently joined Dominion Energy’s “Solar for Students” program, which gives students the chance to learn firsthand about harnessing solar energy from a solar array installed outside the school.

CATEC was one of five public schools in Virginia, as well as one children’s museum, to join the program this year. Four public schools piloted the program in 2015.

Dominion Energy’s “Solar for Students” presents an exciting opportunity to teach students about renewable energy.  Through this program, CATEC and PVCC (Piedmont Virginia Community College) will provide specialized, hands-on solar training, enabling program graduates to pursue careers in the growing renewable energy sector. 

CATEC will use on-site educational photovoltaic and on-line display systems to train students in solar system installation, maintenance, and energy usage monitoring and analysis.  The system will be an addition to CATEC Building Trades Labs, which currently offer electrical, plumbing, HVAC, masonry and carpentry training.
