Company joins South Jersey community partners to implement key education and jobs program
Atlantic City Electric joined four South Jersey workforce development boards and three vocational schools to officially launch a six-year $6.5-million program to educate the workforce needed to fill future energy jobs across New Jersey. The launch of this innovative program comes just months after New Jersey Gov. Phil Murphy signed into law important legislation to create jobs and drive a cleaner energy future for New Jersey.
“Delivering a cleaner energy future for our customers tomorrow requires investing in the next generation of energy professionals now,” said Dave Velazquez, president and CEO of Pepco Holdings, which includes Atlantic City Electric, Delmarva Power and Pepco. “Through this essential program, we will educate the workforce that will help keep our energy grid running, advance solar, wind and other clean energy technologies, and drive innovation in our industry.”
Atlantic City Electric’s workforce development program is being implemented through a partnership with Atlantic County Institute of Technology, Cape May Vocational School, Cumberland County TEC, and each of the four workforce development boards across the Atlantic City Electric service area.
