wind power Green Means Opportunity


Green careers are hot right now.  The environment-saving crusade is drinking in a phenomenal victory, which seem to be growing at an exponential rate, to the extent that the wind (generating energy) industry employs more people then coal mining in the United States.  More employment opportunities are available in an ever rising green economy.

The amazing appeal to this prospect is that these jobs require little or no credentials other then a GED or high school diploma.  In addition, there are readily available green job training programs, and workshops for the less studious.  Many colleges offer  courses in this field, even full degrees in renewable energy.  And, those who already have a degree or background in mechanics or engineering, can redirect their career to the benefit of the environment.

Everyday new regulations are being set in place that actually increase the number of jobs.  The American Clean Energy and Security Act of 2009 (ACES) dictates higher use of renewable energy, higher reduction of emissions, and has set a penalty for violation of the bill.  The result being, major reconstruction in the power industry, increased production of electric vehicles, and significant increases in energy efficiency in businesses, households, and electricity generation in general.

The government has provided funding, and continues to do so, to encourage growth in the field.  In the following statement:

“The Green Jobs Act of 2007 (H.R. 2847), introduced by Reps. Hilda Solis (D-CA) and John Tierney (D-MA), authorizes up to $125 million in funding to establish national and state job training programs, administered by the U.S. Department of Labor, to help address job shortages that are impairing growth in green industries.”
