Discussion

Gemini Energy Services is a recipient of a 20% Wind Energy Funding Opportunity Announcement award. The program will work to establish a Military Veteran Wind Training Program.

With the launch of Gemini Energy Service's workforce development training program, military veterans have the opportunity to transfer their skills from the armed forces into careers as wind technicians. Gemini's training not only provides value to turbine technicians and wind industry manufacturers, but it also creates jobs. Since the start of the training program, Gemini has expanded its workforce significantly, from just 23 technicians to 104 technicians.
