Energy

Investments by EDF Renewable Energy, Enbridge and Kinder Morgan have, collectively, exceeded $400 million in Kankakee County in recent years. A cooperative regulatory climate and growth-minded local leadership provide the spark for our power projects.

Kankakee County also offers industry-leading workforce development programs to support the energy sector. Kankakee Community College's award-winning and nationally certified electrical technology program prepares students for real-world jobs in the emerging solar, wind and geothermal industries. The program has begun to build a pipeline of qualified workers for EDF Renewable Energy's Pilot Hill and Kelly Creek wind farms.

In July2014, KCC announced a grant from the State of Illinois to construct an Advanced Technological Education Center. The facility will contain classrooms, labs, offices, and support spaces to provide hands-on technical training in fields such as wind generation, solar thermal, solar photo-voltaic systems, and electrical (National Electric Code NEC) instruction. The addition is being designed to meet or exceed requirements for the U.S. Green Building Council's Leadership in Energy and Environment Design (LEED) Gold certification.
