Renewable Energy

We keep renewable industries humming

The renewable-energy industry is expanding at an incredibly rapid pace. Potential abounds, from efficient, profitable operations for power producers to clean, sustainable energy for the North American public.

The Southern States Millwright Regional Council has the skilled millwrights to build the facilities, farms, and towers needed to harness these unlimited natural resources. We are veterans of the nuclear-power and hydroelectric industries and are aggressively working to ensure our millwrights are prepared to help employers leverage opportunities found in the wind industry.

Our Advantage

Training, industry partnerships, and establishing relationships with key manufacturers gives Southern States Millwrights a competitive advantage on jobsites and positions our contractors as the best choice for the installation and maintenance of wind turbines as well as newer strategies such as small hydro, modern biomass, geothermal and biofuels.

Regardless of scale, complexity, geography or schedule, Southern States Millwrights have the training and experience to deliver a renewable-energy construction project on time and according to budget. Multi-leveled outreach promises to keep the appropriate focus on supporting this industry well into the future.

UBC Renewable Energy Committee
We benefit from the work of the UBC Renewable Energy Committee, which facilitates the exchange of information across the United States and Canada in order to stay abreast of legislative, training, and marketing opportunities. The goal is to leverage a diverse group of professionals from both countries to establish a clearinghouse of market conditions and best practices in training for employers and union members. The committee tracks renewable-energy initiatives in various stages of development all over North America, as well as issues being debated in state, provincial, and federal legislatures.

Wind Training
Southern States Millwrights understand the intricacies of the wind-power industry. Based on its long history of excellence in gas- and steam-turbine installation and maintenance, we are well positioned to apply this expertise in the wind industry. SSMRC 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, we understand the technology, tooling, machinery, and maintenance needs to first install and then keep wind equipment humming.

Legislative Outreach
The UBC is educating elected officials about the vast number of jobs and economic growth that are possible via the renewable-energy industry. UBC political professionals are working with members of Congress so that initiatives to develop the industry are supported. Many of these programs, such as the production tax credit for wind, solar, geothermal, and bio-energy production, have been factors in billions of dollars in investment and significant job creation through administrations of both parties.
