CCCC Solar Classes Begin at Concordia High School Technical Education Center

11 September 2018

New Opportunity for Students Interested in Renewable Energy

 Last month, Cloud County Community College’s Renewable Energy Technology program started a Sun Power Solar Farm. This is part of the newer solar energy technology training that is now being offered at Cloud County. The program trains students to become solar project designers, installers, and operation technicians. Classes are being offered this fall and include hands-on learning with the solar farm.

Back in April of 2018, Cloud County Commission awarded the Renewable Energy Technology Program with $25,000 to assist in building out facilities and providing equipment for a partnership with Concordia High School. The former auto shop area at the Technical Education Center will allow students form Concordia High School to attend college courses through the program free of tuition through Senate Bill 155.

 Dr. Adrian Douglas, President of Cloud County Community College, is pleased with the partnership they’ve created. This should be a wonderful program with much success here at Cloud County Community College!
