Vineyard Wind Pledges $2M for "Wind Workforce"

Vineyard Wind has announced a $2 million “Wind Workforce” initiative to recruit, mentor, and train local residents for high-skills careers in the alternative energy industry.

The CEO of Vineyard Wind, Lars Thaaning Pederson, says the objective is to make Massachusetts the nation’s leading center for offshore wind farm development.

The “Wind Workforce” program will be undertaken in partnership with vocational schools, community colleges, and other local organizations.

Vineyard Wind’s proposal to construct an 800 megawatt wind farm about 15 miles south of Martha’s Vineyard includes plans for up to 3,600 new jobs, including 1,000 new hires prior to 2022.
