New Energy Economy: Renewable energy boom boosts job opportunities
October 2, 2009
A story in the Las Vegas Sun newspaper talks about a growing trend – the boom in renewable energy jobs for people who know how to operate and install renewable energy systems. Expect to see more of these — jobs and stories. Training is also an issue that is starting to get some attention. In Alaska, the Mat-Su College will be offering renewable energy courses this spring. The Alaska Vocational Technical Center (AVTEC) in Seward is also looking at installing a wind turbine to further students’ electrical knowledge and to provide training for engineers who will be maintaining wind turbines in rural villages.
