Exeter students get career advice from SunGift Solar

Exeter teenagers interested in a career in renewable energy will be getting a visit from local installer SunGift solar.

The visit, which coincide with LifeSkills National Careers Week, will take place at Exeter College’s Falcon House Construction Training Centre on Friday 06 March from 10am-12.30pm.

Kevin Ciolino, SunGift’s operations manager and technical specialist, said: “This is a tremendously exciting time for students who are interested in a career in renewable energy.

“Renewable energy has reached record levels, and with companies such as IKEA, British Telecom and Mars recently committing to procuring 100 percent of their energy from renewable sources, employment prospects in this area are only going to improve further.”

He added: “While careers in fossil fuels companies will decline, renewable energy really is the future, so it makes sense for the next generation to understand the opportunities that are out there.”
