"SunPower is proud of this relationship not only because it was the first school district partner who asked us to their CTE education initiatives, but because Innovate T-K has been a leader in innovative, effective and game-changing CTE education programming!"

"SunPower Corporation has been a proud business partner with Innovate Tulare-Kings since 2010, when we first started work with Porterville USD to deliver 3.7 megawatts of SunPower solar power systems at six district schools.  SunPower is proud of this relationship not only because it was the first school district partner who asked us to their CTE education initiatives, but because Innovate T-K has been a leader in innovative, effective and game-changing CTE education programming. 
In partnership with Innovate TK and Porterville USD’s CTE administration team, we refined our Solar Energy Academy model work-based learning program, helping to inspire and educate high school graduates with work-ready skills, and the motivation to join the renewable energy industry. 
Together, we are opening doors for local students to work in local business and meet economic development goals.  SunPower believes that we do well as a business only when we do good in our communities and schools. Our employees are inspired to be guest lecturers and mentors, sharing their knowledge and investing in both student and teacher education.  We look forward to our future collaborations with Innovate TK and hiring the next generation of energy leaders."
