Solar Women Warriors Trained at the Red Cloud Renewable Energy Center

Solar Women Warriors Miranda Red Bear and Ariel Frazier, both members of the Cheyenne River Sioux Tribe, learn to build the fan component of a solar heater at the Red Cloud Renewable Energy Center.

Thanks to the generous support of many donors, we were able to provide two Native American women with full scholarships to the Red Cloud Renewable Energy Center’s most recent soalr heater workshop, providing them with important green job skills for the future.

Henry Red Cloud shows Native American trainees how to build and install solar heating systems.

Ariel Frazier and Miranda Red Bear, both members of the Cheyenne River Sioux Tribe, completed the 10-day workshop and received their Solar Technician 1 certification. Ariel and Miranda are now equipped with the technical skills to build and install solar heating systems in their own reservation communities.

Congratulations to Miranda and Ariel for their important accomplishments and we wish them the best in their future endeavors!
