Technicians have been out of work as India’s solar industry is unable to match training to demand


When Sukhwinder Singh, Mitali Sinh and Raman Sorout applied for solar technician training, they hoped to find a job in India’s growing solar industry. But none of them did.

They were trained under the Suryamitra program – a flagship project of the Indian Skill Council for Green Jobs – and spent all three months looking for work in the solar energy industry, but couldn’t figure it out.
