This Veterans Day, in honor of those who have put themselves in harm’s way for our country, we salute those members of the Nextracker Inc. team and the clean energy industry at large who have served in the armed forces. My Dad served in active duty as a Lieutenant in the U.S. Navy in the second world war and emphasized the importance of taking care of the community. When we look at our Vet team members and see how they have applied their service knowledge and values to become leading solar professionals, it makes us proud. We firmly believe that solar is a great career fit for returning Vets and welcome applications of any service member.
Dave Brandt, who worked on a nuclear submarine in the 1990s, says he uses lessons and behaviors he learned in the Navy every day on the job at Nextracker. And Patrick Brunner, former Army officer and paratrooper, notes how his military service taught him to be “a good follower as well as how to lead from the front.” And former Marine Sergeant Matt Bradley, sees “solar is a great opportunity for Vets to help transition their disciplined work ethics and technical training over to a challenging and rewarding career.” These are just a few of the stories of our Nextracker Vets; also, thank you to Brian Pritchett, Matt Miller, Nick Planck, Marcel Duran, Patrick Harbert, George “Ray” Still, Chris Cortazar, Andrew Blair, Peter Sunwoo, and Daniel Hernandez.
I’m also proud that we have supplied our #smart solar trackers to dozens of projects generating clean energy for military installations across the US. We’re honored to contribute to our nation’s energy security and military resiliency and see renewable energy as an integral part of national security.
Join us in honoring all our Veterans and those currently serving, who have done so much for all of us.
