Subscribe to WBSM-AM/AM 1420 on

It is touted as the premiere job creator for the region and nation. The Bureau of Labor Statistics predicts a 108% growth in the wind turbine service tech field by 2024. There’s lots of prep work underway as New Bedford’s seaport gears up for the wind energy industry to pace the golden road to jobs, jobs, jobs.

The prospects call for mega openings for welders, electricians, plumbers, engineers, lawyers and marketers, just to name a few. Greater New Bedford Voc-Tech high school has numerous training and educational opportunities to fill the current industry void. GNBVT’s Rob Gomes and Joe Yarmac came on the show to talk about wind energy and the potential opportunities for the young and displaced workers.
