PCPC HBCU SOLAR RADIO INITIATIVE
Slogan for Show
“IF POWER IS IN NUMBERS (PCPC LLC) CAPTURES THAT POWER FOR YOUR FINANCIAL BENEFIT”
This show serves as a national platform for African American consumers that will be affected by federal, state, and municipal mandates . We have had interviews with the private, public and non-profit sectors, stakeholders talking about the benefits of installing solar panels and every subject matter of economic interest, surrounding the solar and renewal energy and energy industry.
Guest have discussed the important roles black Americans play every day in their everyday jobs in the solar and energy industry.
The Show has served as a blueprint for economic self-reliance for the solar and renewal energy companies both large and small, along with increasing market share for African American Solar Installation companies.
Community engagement over the last 12 years to educate the African American community about climate change and the solar industry with its many benefits has been a major problem. Community engagement in getting the solar industry, city, state, and federal government to invest advertising dollars with African American owned media to educate African American communities has been a major issue nationally. The PCPC HBCU Solar Radio Initiative will be solicitating funding from the public and private sectors to pay for syndication and broadcasting costs with the Urban One Radio Network of radio programs such as “Solar Now and the Future With its Economic Impact on Black America.” The program educates the black community locally and nationally about the economic impacts of climate change and provides environmental education to the black community. Through syndication, the program will be heard in 76 markets nationally, which will help drive public opinion in reaching our stated goals which the following:
a. To address the economic effect of high energy cost for HBCUS.
b. To utilize Black American owned farm lands and HBCU campuses to develop capacity and initiatives for solar installation projects to create employment opportunities, to help bring down the numbers of under employed and unemployed young black men and women locally and nationally.
c. Has served as a national plant form in educating the black community locally and nationally about the economic impacts of climate change and the need for environmental education in the black community through black talk radio program such as “Solar Now And The Future With Its Economic Impact On Black America
d. To target the 106 Historically Black Colleges and Universities (HBCU’s) to become NABCEP continuing education certificate training providers to provide online training in their local area market places for interested candidates.
e. To encourage HBCUs with workforce development programs to work in conjunction with local solar companies in their market places to help them develop apprenticeship training programs for individuals successful in completing the NABCEP continuing education or work development training programs.
f. To encourage HBCUs with Small Business Development Centers (SBDC) to help identify students majoring in business administration at HBCUs to assist local solar companies in writing proposals targeting local and federal grants to develop training programs, reducing the time and resources needed for smaller solar companies in their market place to complete the application process for grants.
g. To encourage HBCUs to enter into more public/private partnerships with solar companies and private investment companies to set up more solar farms on African-American owned farm lands and HBCU campuses nationally.
h. To leverage current The Department of Agriculture ,Department of Energy and EPA grants to certify under and unemployed youth.
