Alternative Energy Southeast has joined an effort by the Solar Energy Industries Association (SEIA) to keep the products of forced labor out of the solar industry.
In some parts of the world solar components are manufactured by people who are forced to work for low or no wages in terrible working conditions.
SEIA has gathered 175 solar companies to work out methods to trace forced labor products and facilities. Also to work out procedures to ensure that the source of products are known. The new group will launch poltical efforts to pass laws that will root out forced labor companies and countries.
Montana Busch, Founder, CEO and President of AES said, "Our company has been involved in improving the communities that we do business in from the start and now we are joining in efforts to improve the global solar community.
