Illuminating Futures: Solar Centric’s Commitment to Local Talent and Sustainable Growth

At Solar Centric, our dedication to sustainability goes beyond harnessing the sun’s power to light up homes and businesses across the UK. It’s about nurturing the community that surrounds us, contributing to its growth, and inspiring the next generation of skilled professionals in the solar energy sector. Our recent initiatives with Briton Ferry RFC and Afan College are prime examples of how we’re implementing our vision for a brighter, greener future.

Supporting Local Talent: The Briton Ferry RFC Partnership

We’re thrilled to announce that Solar Centric is now a full-time sponsor of Briton Ferry RFC, a club that’s as passionate about community and teamwork as we are. This partnership reflects our commitment to investing in local communities, recognising the vital role sports play in promoting unity, health, and resilience. Through this sponsorship, we aim not just to support the club financially but also to spread awareness about the importance of sustainability and renewable energy among players, fans, and the wider community.

Lighting the Path with Afan College

Education is the foundation, and at Solar Centric, we strongly believe in empowering the brightest minds from the very beginning of their professional journeys. Recently our colleague, Gareth, visited Afan College, which is part of the Neath Port Talbot College Group and located just an 8-minute drive from our office. His purpose was to engage with apprenticeship candidates and introduce them to the exciting world of solar energy.

These interviews serve a dual purpose. Firstly, they aim to recruit the next generation of solar professionals. Secondly, they are also intended to plant seeds of innovation and environmental stewardship in young minds. By incorporating solar energy into the curriculum and offering hands-on experience through apprenticeships, we are ensuring that the industry can meet future demand with a workforce that is not only skilled but also passionate about making a difference.

Why Early Engagement Matters

Incorporating solar energy education at the outset of professional development is crucial. The solar industry is evolving rapidly, with technological advancements and increasing demand for green energy solutions. By introducing students and apprentices to solar energy concepts and practices early on, we’re preparing a skilled labour force ready to deliver efficient and effective solutions on all sites as standard.

This approach is about more than just meeting demand; it’s about shaping a future where solar energy is a fundamental part of our energy mix, supported by a community that values and understands its importance. We’re not just creating jobs; we’re fostering careers that will contribute to a sustainable world.

A Brighter Tomorrow

Our initiatives with Briton Ferry RFC and Afan College represent the beginning of a long-term strategy to invest in local talent and sustainable growth. By supporting local clubs and educational institutions, we’re not only contributing to the development of the solar energy sector but also strengthening the fabric of our community.
