Powering America’s professional team of IBEW craftsmen and their signatory contractors—including those who are members of the National Electrical Contractors Association—has the expertise and experience to help you complete any smart energy job on time, to exact specifications and at or below budget. Rigorous training in cutting-edge technologies allows us to help you advance the solar energy industry and forge a bright future.
For three decades and more, the Powering America team has been out front in the energy revolution, long before the word “green” became fashionable. Powering America has been instrumental in developing the “Smart Grid”— making the use of new and alternative energy sources possible. Powering America’s solar power training is leading-edge.
The Powering America team can help design highly efficient, even “Zero Net”, construction projects or perform energy audits and retrofits for existing buildings. Our expertise helps ensure that the right electrical systems are installed, so that customers can lower their energy costs and quickly recover their investments.
Powering America’s team has invested millions in training programs uniquely positioned to provide the skilled workers the nation demands to push alternative energy programs forward. From Massachusetts to Minnesota, Ohio to Oregon, the Powering America team, through its electrical training ALLIANCE, is actively providing training in the installation and maintenance of the latest technology.
With 300 training centers across America, the electrical training ALLIANCE offers apprentices and journeymen a range of rigorous, precision “green job” training that puts them at the forefront of the alternative power movement.
In California, IBEW Local 595 put its renewable energy skills on display in a radical redesign of its own training center, combining wind turbines with solar panels to create a building that produces as much energy as it consumes—making it one of only a handful of U.S. Department of Energy-designated “zero net energy buildings” and one of the first achieved by retrofitting an existing commercial building.
On a visit to a Denver JATC training facility, Rep. Ed Perlmutter of Colorado said, “This system that [Powering America has] put into place is what we’ve got to do across the nation—no ifs, ands or buts. It’s very simple: it’s good for national security, it’s good for jobs and it’s good for the climate.”
