White Earth Solar Air Heater Training and Installation Forms and Flyers
The White Earth Land Recovery Project is hosting a solar air heater installation training course at our main offices in Callaway, MN April 30th through May 4th, where students will receive hands-on experience installing 10 solar heaters on households across the White Earth Reservation.
The Solar Air Heater Training is a full day course. Breakfast will be served at 9am, after which training will begin. Lunch will be served during a break in the early afternoon. The training will prepare students for paid contract work installing 10 solar heaters on homes on the White Earth Reservation following the conclusion of the course. After completing the training, students will be encouraged to maintain contact with Trees, Water & People, Lakota Solar Enterprises, and WELRP, as they will be eligible for similar contracted solar heater installation opportunities in the future.
The Solar heaters themselves work during the daylight hours to help offset the heating costs of your home. If you are a White Earth tribal member, and own a home on the White Earth Reservation, you are eligible to receive one of these solar heaters. At this time, there are only 10 panels, and installation is restricted to only homes heated by wood or electric heat. However, we encourage you to fill out an application regardless of your home’s heating source, as more panels will be made available in the future. The heaters require a shade-free south-facing wall for installation.
