The ability to re-inject millions of dollars into rural community revenue streams, like the ones that raised me. Renewable energy offers people with land-based revenue optionality and financial predictability in what they produce on their property. At each level of involvement, renewable energy development means the opportunity to give back. At the personal level, renewable energy development gives a 90 year old woman the opportunity to support her husband’s medical bills throughout hospice care. At the community level, taking farmed ground temporarily out of production allows fallowed soils the time they need to regenerate while still allowing landowners to make an income from the property. At the surrounding farm community level, selectively reducing supply of crops like corn and soybeans creates increases demand, allowing the potential for higher value per bushel. At the state level, renewable energy allows state citizens the choice to generate their own electricity within their own state – every ray of sun and gust of wind produces homegrown energy in our very backyards. It’s a privilege to work in an industry that gives power back to the people.
Achieving gender equality in the workforce requires the engagement of women and men, executives and associates; it is everyone’s responsibility. In a traditionally male-dominated industry, National Grid Renewables is committed to being a leader in female empowerment. Thirty percent of our management team are women and we are dedicated to growing this number every year. Want to learn more? Apply for our open roles today.
