From the Great Plains to the ocean shore and out at sea, the race is on to make the United States the worlds number one producer of wind power. We explore a new wind ranch to see the full range of new jobs from entry-level wind turbine technician to crane operator, wind power computer analyst and up to operations manager. We also visit a leading university taking part in the California Wind Energy Initiative where young wind power researchers are beginning their new careers designing better windmills and the wind energy systems of the future.
Jobs profiled in this program include:
Wind Turbine Technician, Crane Operator, Operations Manager, Computer Analyst, Wind Power Researcher, Aerodynamicist
