CIMC partners with USST to develop renewable energy projects and green jobs

"CIMC partners with USST to develop renewable energy projects and green jobsAlliance forged under CIMC Green Jobs Initiative aims to spur economic
development in tribal communities(Via Indian Country Today)The California Indian Manpower Consortium recently announced a statewide
alliance with U.S. Science and Technology, a renewable energy project
development company.CIMC is a nonprofit corporation dedicated to the purpose of working for the
social welfare, educational and economic advancement of California Native
Americans. The alliance is the first partnership formed to fulfill the
economic development and environmental program goals of CIMC's Green Jobs
Initiative announced May 12.Through this partnership, CIMC will utilize USST's engineering and project
management expertise to explore the feasibility and development of
renewable energy installments that utilize versatile and environmentally
friendly technologies across tribal communities in the state of California.
Projects under consideration could utilize commercially proven
waste-to-energy, solar and wind power technologies."We are excited to form this alliance with USST," said Lorenda Sanchez,
CIMC executive director. "This partnership will open the door for
California's tribes to take an active role in protecting their Native lands
and the environment. At the same time, Native Americans will now have
opportunities to lead the way in the new green economy while addressing
employment issues in tribal communities."Under the alliance, USST will identify suitable renewable energy solutions
by assessing wind and solar resources and critical waste management
problems, (problematic waste streams and regions), across California's
tribal communities. For projects authorized by individual tribes, USST will
manage the engineering, development and operation of renewable energy
installments while coordinating job training and community enrichment
services."We see this alliance as a win-win for the tribes, the land and the
environment," said Bill Ludwig, USST president and CEO. "We look forward to
working with CIMC to develop renewable energy solutions that will create
new jobs and revenue sources for California's tribal communities, while
protecting the environment for generations to come."CIMC will oversee all activities to ensure projects meet environmental and
economic compliance. CIMC will also work closely with the tribes to ensure
all concerns are addressed, information is readily accessible, and that
tribal input is implemented. Projects will be completely financed by
outside sources, including project investment financing, and grant monies,
with minimal or no financial contribution from CIMC.For the very latest in green jobs from across the United States and
