Volunteer

The Big Solar Co-op is powered by volunteers.  If you’d like to be involved in making a lot more rooftop solar happen locally or nationally :

  1. Fill out this simple form to let us know that you are interested in volunteering.
  2. Sign a non-disclosure agreement with Sharenergy (a bit of legalese but nothing too scary).
  3. Attend a training webinar for the OpenSolar online software that the Big Solar Co-op uses.
  4. Receive link to our custom OpenSolar documentation.
  5. Join our #opensolar Slack channel for support and ideas from other volunteers and Big Solar Co-op staff. We want your feedback on our processes too!
  6. Get cracking with designing solar arrays!

In the longer term the Big Solar Co-op will be supporting volunteers to liaise with local leads, negotiate with building owners and in some cases take on short term paid roles to project manage installations in specific areas.
