Check out the great work Millwright Local Union 1076 members are doing at a wind farm in Losantville, Indiana.
The renewable energy industry is expanding at an incredibly rapid pace. In fact, industry analysts believe that solar power generators, alone, will produce most of the energy needed around the world within 50 years. Potential abounds, from efficient, profitable operations for power producers to clean, sustainable energy for the North American public.
The Indiana/Kentucky/Ohio Regional Council of Carpenters has the skilled millwrights to build the facilities, farms, panels, and towers needed to harness these unlimited natural resources. The IKORCC is aggressively working to ensure its millwrights are prepared to help employers leverage opportunities found in the North American energy industry.
Training, industry partnerships, and establishing relationships with key manufacturers gives IKORCC Millwrights a competitive advantage on jobsites, and positions IKORCC contractors as the best choice for the installation and maintenance of wind turbines and solar heating panels, as well as newer strategies such as small hydro, modern biomass, geothermal and biofuels.
Thousands of skilled, qualified millwrights are ready for solar energy construction projects. The UBC has created industry-specific training to install solar arrays on new and existing commercial and residential buildings.
The Solar Installer Qualification course, taught at the International Training Center in Las Vegas, makes use of the UBC’s renowned “train the trainer” model so that standardized training is deployed at the hundreds of training facilities across the USA and Canada.
The result: In-demand job skills are delivered to the job site ASAP. The course focuses on concepts such as concentrated solar thermal, photovoltaic crystalline silicon and thin-film, and concentrated photovoltaic systems.

IKORCC Millwrights understand the intricacies of the wind power industry. Based on its long history of excellence in gas and steam turbine installation and maintenance, IKORCC Millwrights are well-positioned to apply this expertise in the wind industry.
IKORCC Millwrights have the reputation to deliver wind energy projects to the exact specifications of the project, regardless of schedule, geographic constraints, or any other challenge that may surface. Based on years of hands-on and theoretical training, our Millwrights understand the technology, tooling, machinery and maintenance needs to first install and then keep wind equipment humming.
The IKORCC is educating elected officials about the vast amount of jobs and economic growth that is at stake via the renewable energy industry. IKORCC political professionals are working with members of Congress so that initiatives to develop the industry are supported. Many of these programs, such as a 20-year-old production tax credit for wind, solar, geothermal, and bioenergy production, have been factors in billions of dollars in investment and significant job creation through administrations of both parties.
Regardless of scale, complexity, geography, or schedule, IKORCC Millwrights have the training and expertise to deliver a renewable energy construction project on time and according to budget.
