GC ReVOLT is thrilled to be a part of a unique and innovative educational initiative at the Nebraska Indian Community Colleges in Macy and Santee. The pics from the class below display highlights of the course GC ReVOLT developed which was focused on "Solar and Alternative Energy Entrepreneurs" which is part of a larger course on developing Native American Entrepreneurs.GC ReVOLT's Graham Christensen served as Adjunct Professor for the class, and guest speakers included Walthill Village Chairman Mike Grant, Omaha Nation Tribal Council Member Gwen Porter, Scientist Meteorologist and Army Veteran Jim Persson, GenPro's Tanner Jobgen and Molly Brown, and area State Electrical Inspector Todd Flick.Also a special thanks to Max Christensen and the entire Christensen Electric team, Cody Lofgren and the Freewave Energy team for the incredible installs and for taking the time to allow the students to follow the construction of each campus project. Thanks to the State Electrical Inspectors for offering a special view of what it takes to turn solar power on and start to understand electrical code, and to Burt County Public Power District and North Central Public Power District for the Interconnections. Most importantly thanks to NICC for having a vision around bringing the conversations around energy sovereignty and security from alternative energies to the students. And thanks to the students who participated!This program is certainly a GC ReVOLT highlight of 2021 and we hope to grow more opportunities on Tribal lands in the upcoming months and years!
