IVCC receiving large wind energy grant

Posted by wlpo on May 31, 2012

You can’t go far without spotting a wind turbine.  A program at Illinois Valley Community College that trains students for jobs in the wind energy field is receiving a $99,000 grant.

The money is coming from the U.S. Department of Agriculture Rural Development Grant and is part of the college’s 2.1 million dollar capital campaign.

The classes will be offered in the Peter Miller Community Technology Center that’s under construction and expected to open in January 2014.

College President Jerry Corcoran says enrollment in the program has been filled to capacity.  He hasn’t said how the money will be used.  That will be announced Monday.
