During my first year in graduate school, I knew I wanted to work towards a career in renewable energy. The Energy Co-op Member Services Internship presented itself as the perfect opportunity. For four months, I gained so much valuable knowledge of renewable energy, and energy in general. I became familiar with the inner workings of retail energy markets in a way that only those working within this field are. This was all thanks to the dedicated staff who often took time out of their very busy days to impart their knowledge and were very supportive throughout my entire time as an intern. I have come away from this internship with a strong start in building up my professional experience and network in Pennsylvania’s renewable energy sector.
