College's solar installation will provide educational opportunities

The announcement of plans to install the largest rooftop solar energy system in Wisconsin on Madison College's Truax Campus drew a lot of attention this week including this article on ATE@20. Ken Walz, Madison College instructor and director of the Center for Renewable Energy Advanced Technological Education, said the installation will benefit students and instructors from around the country who attend the STEM Solar Institute at the college.

Walz also said employment growth in the solar industry and other types of renewable energy should result in increased hiring in the near term. Madison College offers certificates in renewable energy, solar energy and wind energy.
