Alternative & Renewable Energy
Renewable energy is derived from natural processes such as solar, wind, ocean, hydropower, biomass, geothermal resources, and bio-fuels and hydrogen derived from renewable resources.
The I.B.E.W. is aggressively pursuing the emerging renewable energy markets, and we have the resources required to build and maintain these new technologies.
The Houston I.B.E.W. and many of our member contractors are leading the way in photovoltaic (solar energy) systems and wind energy installations. I.B.E.W. electricians are comprehensively trained both through the JATC electrical training program and continuing education programs. From project planning through installation and connection to the power grid, our member contractors and electricians are adept in all aspects of renewable energy projects.
