Green Technologies taught at the JATC
Advanced Lighting Control
A recent award of 2.9 million dollars in stimulus money has been awarded to the twenty Electrical JATC programs in the State of California. These funds will be shared beween the programs to teach, educate and certify electricians in advanced lighting control. While Solar and Wind grab most of the headlines in energy efficiency, experts predict the biggest gains will come from energy conservation through reduced energy consumption. Retrofitting the many commerical and industrial buildings in our state with these advanced lighting control products will help reduce energy usage.
The major energy suppliers in the state are required to find ways to reduce energy consumption and are looking to partner with CALCTP certified electrical contractors to achieve this goal. It has been estimated that 2,100 electricians with CALCTP certifications will be needed to complete the estimated 32 billion dollars in potential work this retrofitting could generate. Details in future training opportunities in advanced lighting control will be forthcoming later this year.
Wind Generation Installations
Unlike many parts of the country, we are fortunate to have this work in our area. It has been estimated that there will be over 400 Megawatts of new electrical wind generation machines (windmills) to be installed in the not too distant future.
The NJATC has created a new curriculum for training in this emerging field. Signup sheets are available in our Training Center for this upcoming continuing education course.
Solar training has become one of our most popular continuing education courses. We have currently trained over 175 journeymen and apprentices in this growing field. Signups for spring and summer classes will soon be posted in our Training Center.
