Want to be in the fast growing field of renewable, sustainable, and alternative energy solutions?  Enroll in MSTC’s Renewable Electricity Technician program today!

The Renewable Electricity Technician program focuses on the production of electricity via renewable resources, offering you an in-depth introduction to electricity and renewables. You will learn to design, install, operate, and maintain solar and wind electricity generating systems for both residential and light commercial applications. Small class sizes mean you receive a personal one-on-one learning experience.

Technicians will perform wind and solar energy site assessments, and integrate new renewable electricity systems with current existing energy sources. Renewable electricity technicians may be involved in the sale or marketing of solar PV and wind energy technologies.

The Renewable Electricity Technician program is offered at Wisconsin Rapids Campus and is the only program of its kind offered in the Wisconsin Technical College System.
