KI_directsunKittrell Job Corps Center has partnered with DirectSun Solar, Energy and Technology to establish an internship for its new Kittrell Solar Farm off Kittrell College Road in North Carolina.

Kittrell staff attended the Vance County Board of Commissioners meeting that approved the solar farm’s development. Afterward, staff met with DirectSun’s Percy Wilson and a delegation of the African Methodist Episcopal (AME) Church leaders, which are involved in ownership of the land. The solar farm land is owned by the Second District Religious, Educational and Charitable Development Projects Inc. (Second District RED), which is affiliated with the AME Church.

Kittrell looks forward to working with DirectSun to prepare the future generation of solar farm workers.
