Energize Careers aims to create a diverse and representational sustainability workforce through the economic empowerment of people who experience systemic barriers to employment by helping them to access high-wage, high-growth green career opportunities. The Energize Careers Program provides holistic services to support marginalized people through technical training, job placement, and employment support. Energize Careers partners with pre-apprenticeship programs, apprenticeship programs, community-based training organizations, and community colleges to provide technical sustainability training to underserved individuals, and we collaborate with wrap around service providers and industry partners to provide people with services and support to access career pathways into stable, living wage sustainability jobs.
The Energize Careers program is funded by California utility customers and administered by Pacific Gas and Electric Company (PG&E) and supported by the state’s other investor-owned utilities, (IOUs) under the auspices of the California Public Utilities Commission. Customers who choose to participate in this program are not obligated to purchase any additional goods or services offered by implementer name or any other third party.
