REGISTER TODAY!! Climate Jobs Institute Provides a First Look on the Working Conditions of New York State Solar Workers.

Attend in person or watch the livestream on Friday, April 26.

Join us on Friday, April 26, for Cornell ILR’s Climate Jobs Institute first-of-its-kind look into the experience of solar installers and maintenance workers on residential, commercial, and utility solar projects.

The CJI’s State of the NY Solar Workforce study provides a first look at the results of our exploratory study on the working conditions of New York State solar workers—drawing from over 250 survey responses from on-the-ground solar workers—followed by a panel discussion with workers and leaders in this sector. The event will also feature remarks from New York State Senator and Labor Committee Chair Jessica Ramos.

From December 2022 to September 2023, over 250 survey respondents shared their experiences about working conditions, pay and benefits; diversity, equity and inclusion, and more. The survey data also allow for an initial look at differences in working conditions across various demographic variables such as race, gender, and age. 

Please register by Wednesday, April 24, to attend in person or watch the live stream.
