Members of the Southern Current solar installation team recently wrapped up a week-long course designed to enhance the care and safety taken on job sites. The program was 100% voluntary, meaning no local, state, or other authorities ordered this training to occur.

At Southern Current, we’ve always placed an emphasis on the customer experience, and these sessions emphasize the quality standards of our company, ensuring our employees have adequate training to deliver a superb service.

Southern Current employees Adam Eiserman, Jeremy Joiner, and Jeb Anderson discuss solar panel roof mounts at the company office in Charleston.
