Kasselman Solar has received the Patriotic Employer Award!
Kasselman Solar is dedicated to maintaining the most well trained and experienced solar installers, electricians, and engineers in the solar industry which includes former and active duty US Military Personnel.
The Patriotic Employer Award reflects the efforts made to support Citizen Warriors through a wide-range of measures including flexible schedules, time off prior to and after deployment, caring for families and granting leaves of absence if needed. Top ranking General In New York State, General Anthony German, presented Kasselman Solar’s CEO, Steve Kasselman, with the award in a ceremony at our facility in Albany, New York.
The Statement of Support Program is the cornerstone of ESGR’s effort to gain and maintain employer support for the Guard and Reserve. The intent of the program is to increase employer support by encouraging employers to act as advocates for employee participation in the military. Supportive employers are critical to maintaining the strength and readiness of the nation’s Guard and Reserve units. The Patriotic Employer Award commends such employers for their efforts.
From Our CEO: “It is my personal and professional honor to receive this award on behalf of Kasselman Solar and our affiliate company Kasselman Electric. We are a third generation family business and both my father, as well as my grandfather, served in the US military. My grandfather served in the navy as an electrician and the training he received in the service was key to his career as an electrician. I vow to continue to give preferential hiring treatment to former and active US Military Personnel, provide training on the job, accommodations for employees when they must participate in drills or deployments, as well as supporting amazing programs the Dept. Of Energy and Dept. Of Defense are collaborating on, such as Solar Ready Vets.”
On behalf of a grateful company,
Steve Kasselman – Kasselman Solar
