Job Training Opportunities Headed to Illinois Under Future Energy Jobs Act
The Future Energy Jobs Act (FEJA), legislation passed by the Illinois Legislature in 2016 and effective June 1, 2017, allocates $10 million every four years in 2017, 2021, and 2025 — a total of $30 million —for solar pipeline training programs, craft apprenticeships and multicultural training for individuals from diverse and/or underserved backgrounds.
ComEd recently filed the FEJA Jobs Training plan with the Illinois Commerce Commission. Six business associations and social organizations have been named as recipients of funding for the development and administration of future energy jobs training.
The FEJA is expected to pivot Illinois to a new clean energy economy, creating thousands of clean energy jobs while creating important environmental and consumer benefits.
