Pellissippi expands green energy courses with grant

Pellissippi State Community College’s green energy course offerings will grow this year, thanks in part to a $40,000 grant from the Appalachian Regional Commission.

The ARC grant was awarded in October to help fund the expansion of courses for green certification, such as Weatherization Energy Auditor and Photovoltaic System Design and Installation.

The courses are taught through Business and Community Services. BCS already offers several green energy and sustainability courses online, and the college expects to train about 100 students during the grant period.

The grant-funded classes will take place in a retrofitted residential structure now used as a training and demonstration center at the Pellissippi Campus on Hardin Valley Road.
