The Wind and Solar Certificate focuses on the installation of wind and solar electric generation equipment designed for use in residential and light commercial environments. This segment of the industry has received statewide acceptance by local communities. As the technology advances payback periods are decreasing thus encouraging increased use of these alternative and renewable power generation technologies. Upon completing this program students will be prepared to work as a renewable energy technician, renewable energy installer, solar energy technician, or a wind technician. Students planning to continue with an associate’s degree should consult with an MCC counselor.
