NATiVE Solar

Spring 2021

Position: Community Iniative Intern
Major: Government & Sustainability Studies Senior
Name: Daija Chambers

NATiVE Solar is a medium-sized, native Texas business. It is one of the longest operating solar companies in the Texas market and has the unique trait of only servicing Texas, unlike larger national companies. I found this internship through Solar Austin’s Pathways to Clean Energy Program which helps place students of color and women in solar and renewable energy internships to seek improved diversity in the industry. As a team member with NATiVE I was responsible for helping the Chief Strategy Officer plan different community initiative projects. The company has a goal and principle of educating the community and working to make solar accessible. As a result, NATiVE’s initiatives include community education, community solar projects, solar installation job training programs, and more. My roles in planning these projects included attending meetings, notetaking during meetings, drafting document or proposals, researching, and presenting ideas. I was also given some marketing tasks such as writing informational blogs and planning community outreach related social media posts.
