TRANSCRIPT

in Solar job news…Several hundred jobs could be coming to Southern California’s Coachella Valley if a new photovoltaic solar electricity project goes through as planned…

Hundreds of construction jobs would be created for a large-scale solar power project slated to begin construction in 2012 near Desert Center, about 50 miles east of Indio, according to Southern California Edison.
The project–dubbed Desert Sunlight– is being built by both Southern California Edison and First Solar, Inc., an Arizona based solar module manufacturer, SCE said. It is expected to be completed in 2015, pending network upgrades and receipt of applicable government permits.

A Maryland company has bought a site in North Carolina for a photovoltaic solar farm. The Winston-Salem Journal reported that SunEdison LLC has started grading on the 357-acre site. SunEdison is the largest solar-energy company in North America. Besides 80 construction jobs, the company plans to have three employees. Production is expected to begin by December 2010.

A new wind turbine manufacturing company is open for business and expects to create 25 jobs in Northwest Ohio, SUREnergy expects to open a facility on Gill Road outside Port Clinton and another in Toledo, said Curtis Stokes of Oak Harbor, a partner in the venture.

QUOTE: “Our main focus is to get people’s attention to alternative energy as the future and to create jobs,” Stokes said. “There are a lot of people who are out of work who this industry could help.” Those interested in working for the company should enroll in the Wind Power Technology Certificate program at Terra Community College in Fremont, he said.

The Denver Business Journal is reporting that Wind-energy company REpower USA Corp. of Portland is moving its headquarters to Denver in early September.

The U.S. company, which is a subsidiary of German wind-turbine manufacturer REpower Systems AG, plans to relocate and/or hire 25 employees for its Denver headquarters operation, and possibly double its staff here in about a year. The company did not say where its Denver offices will be located.

Finally in New Jersey, The Department of Continuing and Professional Education at Ocean County College is focusing on developing a talent net work for g reen colla r jobs. All classes will be held on OCC’s Main Campus, College Drive, Toms River, unless otherwise noted. Register today!

In addition, courses will be offered for the homeowner and general public to increase their knowledge about this green initiative.
