Deploying Smart Strategies in Renewable Energy

The renewable-energy industry continues to rapidly expand and provide opportunities both for efficient, profitable operations for power producers and clean, sustainable energy for consumers in the United States.

Skilled millwrights from the Southeastern Carpenters Regional Council are ready to build the facilities, farms, and towers needed to harness these unlimited natural resources. We are veterans of the nuclear-power and hydro-electric industries and are aggressively working to ensure our millwrights are prepared to help employers leverage opportunities found in the wind industry.

Our Certified Rigger and Signaler Program is now accredited by the National Commission for Certifying Agency. The certification exceeds all requirements for riggers and signalers in the USA and Canada.



Our millwrights understand the intricacies of the wind-power industry. Based on our long history of excellence in gas- and steam-turbine installation and maintenance, we are well positioned to apply this expertise in the wind industry. SECRC millwrights have the reputation to deliver wind energy projects to the exact specifications of the project, regardless of schedule, geographic constraints, or any other challenge that may surface. Based on years of hands-on and theoretical training, we understand the technology, tooling, machinery, and maintenance needs to first install and then keep wind equipment humming.


Whether you need inspection, consultation, installation, repair, overhaul, maintenance, refurbishment or upgrade of your hydroelectric plant equipment, we are ready to service your scheduled or forced outage needs, anytime, anyplace. Our millwrights have worked hydro units across the continent and are experienced in all unit types and sizes. Training positions our contractors as the best choice for the installation and maintenance of not only hydro-electric equipment and wind turbines, but also of newer technologies such as small hydro, modern biomass, geothermal, and biofuels.


  • Safety: Constant attention to safety is ingrained in our membership, from our leadership to our apprentices. Safety is built into every training program, and we work with our partners to proactively ensure safety and resolve individual safety issues as they occur.
  • Dedication: We come to work every day with a positive attitude, a professional appearance, and a determination to finish the job correctly on time, the first time.
  • Availability: Our thousands of SECRC millwrights enable our contractors to be fully staffed at all times, which allows for quick responses to emergencies and other challenges.
  • Productivity: Meeting the schedule is key, and our disciplined, reliable crews know that fast, accurate installations are essential.
  • Flexibility: We keep projects on time and on budget using strategies fine-tuned to customer needs. We compress schedules, adjust staffing numbers, and modify work-hours, work-days, and work-weeks to get the job done.
  • Customer Service: We finish projects according to the customer’s satisfaction, and we follow through with training, maintenance, and customer service. One call puts the best-trained maintenance crews at the jobsite to get the system up and running as fast as possible.


The UBC and SECRC are educating elected officials about the vast number of jobs and economic growth opportunities that are possible via the renewable-energy industry. Our political professionals are working with legislators so that initiatives to develop the industry are supported. Many of these programs, such as the production tax credit for wind, solar, geothermal, and bio-energy production, have been factors in billions of dollars in investment and significant job creation through administrations of both parties.


We benefit from the work of the UBC Renewable Energy Committee, which facilitates the exchange of information across the United States and Canada in order to stay abreast of legislative, training, and marketing opportunities. The goal is to leverage a diverse group of professionals from both countries to establish a clearinghouse of market conditions and best practices in training for employers and millwrights. The committee tracks renewable-energy initiatives in various stages of development all over North America, as well as issues being debated in state, provincial, and federal legislatures.


Regardless of scale, complexity, geography or schedule, SECRC millwrights have the training and experience to deliver a renewable-energy construction project on time and according to budget. Multi-leveled outreach promises to keep the appropriate focus on supporting this industry well into the future.
