Lethbridge, Enel Green Power partner to provide wind turbine training for Indigenous students

November 11, 2020
Lethbridge College and Enel Green Power have partnered to train students from the Piikani Nation in southern Alberta in wind energy through Lethbridge’s Wind Turbine Technician program. The collaboration will see the two parties work together to support Lethbridge’s Indigenous Circle of Services programming, create student awards, and develop experiential learning opportunities for Piikani Nation learners. Students participate in a variety of experiential opportunities, including safety training, the opportunity to build and test wind turbines in Lethbridge’s wind tunnel, and VR experiences. “We appreciate the efforts of Enel and the Lethbridge College Wind Turbine Technician program for supporting our Piikani Nation students,” said Doane Crow Shoe, Piikani Nation Councillor. “We will continue to support the efforts in which our members will learn and promote renewable energy.” Lethbridge Herald | Nation Talk (AB)
