About Event

Join us in the MCJ Community Slack to kick off our 24 hour 'Ask Me Anything' with Brittany Heller.

Our next MCJ Ask-Me-Anything is with Brittany Heller, Director, Program Management at HeatSpring.

Brittany is a guest on our Skilled Labor Series on the My Climate Journey Podcast, hosted by MCJ Partner Yin Lu. This series is focused on amplifying the voices of folks from the skilled labor workforce, including the electricians, the farmers, the ranchers, the HVAC installers, and others who are on the front lines of rewiring our infrastructure. We decided to create this series after hearing the desire from many members of the community who wanted to learn more from folks in the trades.

Let’s meet our guest…

Meet Brittany: Brittany Heller has been in the solar industry in a variety of roles since January 2015. She began her solar career in residential sales in New Orleans. She then moved to Denver where she completed a Construction Fellowship with GRID Alternatives Colorado, building a wide portfolio of solar projects all benefiting income-qualified families. In April 2018, she began her role as Workforce & Community Engagement Manager at GRID Colorado, where she remained until the end of 2021. In addition to teaching solar installation and developing curriculum,  Brittany worked with her team to secure funding to make all job training programs pay participants a living wage, increasing equitable access into the high quality jobs in the solar industry. Today, she works at HeatSpring where she helps to create and promote quality technical training to address our changing climate.

Brittany holds two NABCEP certifications - PV Installation Professional and PV Technical Sales. She sits on the board of advocacy group Georgia Solar. When she isn't talking about solar, she can be found growing food, building soil, and spending time with her animals on her budding 17-acre regenerative farm just outside of Atlanta, GA.

Our AMA with Brittany will start on Wednesday 11th January at 9am PST - 12pm EST - 4pm GMT and run asynchronously in the MCJ AMA slack channel for 24 hours.

Set your reminders, and get your questions ready! You can ask Brittany anything!
