Sacramento – Citing new statistics showing an upward trend toward workforce diversity within the California solar industry, and riding a wave of success for programs to install solar in low-income communities, the California Solar Energy Industries Association (CALSEIA), has launched a new initiative to further diversify its growing industry and marketplace.
