HELiOS Project Volunteer Opportunities

KyotoUSA's HELiOS Project is seeking dedicated volunteers interested in climate change to work with us in assisting California's public schools reduce their energy consumption, become more energy efficient, and install renewable energy systems. Volunteers will assist staff in providing technical and planning support for school districts interested in becoming better energy users and self generators. Through this experience, you will acquire technical skills and training that will be useful should you decide to pursue a career in the energy field.

The responsbilities include assisting staff in assessing the potential for rooftop and carport solar installation using Google Earth Pro, managing school district's energy consumption through EPA ENERGY STAR Portfolio Manager energy management tool, attend occasional meetings with stakeholders such as school district officials and students, and other projects as time allows.

The qualifications include a willingness to commit 5-10 hours per week, proficiency in Microsoft Office, excellent communication skills, and an interest in renewable energy and climate change. 

Our office is located in Berkeley, California.
