"TVA kept it simple!
TVA and I set positive expectations for my training and career as a result it decreased the stresses of transitioning to civilian workforce. TVA assisted me with a successful transition to civilian life. The military life has exposed me to broad spectrum of people and events such as military community support, deployments and war.
My experience with this solar training program has been nothing short of family and community support. Everyone in the organization is willing to share ideas, skills, knowledge, and expertise. The veterans I work with demonstrate positive attitude, act as role models, and take personal interest in accomplishing every Solar PV install with integrity and spirit."
