TRANSCRIPT

First up… a Solar power plant will rise on Kearny NJ landfill.–Gov. Jon Corzine officially announced an $8.5 million plan to construct a solar power plant on the grounds of a former landfill. The New Jersey Meadowlands Commission will lease parts of the landfill to a company that will be responsible for designing, financing, owning and operating the solar facility.

The new plant will cover 28 acres, which is space for enough solar panels to produce 5 megawatts of power, according to the NJMC. It is estimated that the plant would create at least 180 jobs.

Next, CPS Energy and Juwi Solar Inc. have agreed to jointly develop a new solar energy project in Southeast San Antonio. Under the Blue Wing Solar project, Juwi will install 214,500 solar photovoltaic modules near the intersection of Interstate Highway 37 and U.S. Highway 181. The project should generate 14 megawatts of power. This is enough electricity to power 1,800 homes annually.

Juwi Solar, based in Boulder, Colo., expects to break ground on Blue Wing Solar in the first quarter of 2010. Electricity should begin producing toward the end of 2010. The solar facility is expected to create 100 full-time equivalent jobs during the construction phase and seven permanent jobs during the operation and maintenance phase.

The Providence Journal is reporting that a start-up company planning a biodiesel storage and blending facility in the Quonset Business Park has expanded the size of its proposal in response to a projected increase in demand for alternative fuels in New England. Alterra plans to create different blends of biodiesel by mixing diesel with soybean oil and other vegetable oils produced in New Jersey and Pennsylvania.

The Quonset facility could supply 35 million gallons of fuel annually. It will have 18 full-time employees, and construction of the facility could provide an additional 75 temporary jobs. If all goes according to plan, the facility could be up and running by the middle of 2010.

In Tennessee the Chattanooga Times Free Press is reporting Wind turbine tower maker Aerisyn has been purchased by a German company and plans are to add 120 jobs and invest $3 million into the company’s Chattanooga facility. The company said it expects to reach full production by mid-2011 and to employ 240 people.

Join the Green Job Corps….the National Green Energy Council has announced its new Green JobsCorps program, designed to train people across the nation in Green methods and practices. The Council hopes that class attendees will leave the classroom with a greater knowledge of how to provide certain green services to their customers, and The Council will even assist with job placement!

Not all medical careers require advanced certifications and years of graduate-level education. If you’re seeking a medical job that can be obtained more immediately, you may want to consider one of these jobs that do not require a college degree. These entry-level, or “stepping-stone” medical jobs offer hands-on medical industry experience, and they don’t require you to invest so much time and money in training and higher education. Therefore, these jobs allow you to “test-drive” healthcare to see if the industry is a good fit for you long-term. Also, you can earn some money and increase your skills while obtaining more advanced degrees or certifications.
