The San Bernardino County Workforce Investment Board has announced a program aimed at hiring 100 military veterans for maintenance and installation jobs in the local green energy industry. The announcement came as an Alabama metals manufacturer said it needed more workers to help with design, installation and training.

In California, employment officials said veterans who were discharged from the military during the last four years are eligible to participate in a free job training program to work in solar panel installation and maintenance, as well as sustainable and recycled products manufacturing. The San Bernardino Sun reports the program included job placement assistance, as well as on-the-job training.

Meanwhile in Alabama, Herr-Voss Stamco is set to break ground on a new $3 million facility in Montgomery County, according to the Journal Review.

The company, which makes and installs heavy industrial equipment for the metals processing industries, said it expects to hire 30 workers for a variety of positions including machine operators, assembly fitters and equipment repair workers when the new plant is operational next year.

Local employment officials said the new jobs will pay twice the average of typical county wages.
