Government eco-home scheme to create more electrician jobs
A government scheme to go green could benefit electrician’s across the country as it will create a lot of new jobs, according to the Electrical Contractors Association.
The government’s Green Deal looks set to have a positive impact on the trades industry in the next few months, with a slew of jobs available for those with experience in retrofitting existing properties.
Brian Berry, the director of external affairs at the Federation of Master Builders, believes the scheme could offer “big job opportunities”, which is a ray of light at the end of the tunnel after the recent cuts in government spending.
Environmentally-friendly initiatives are springing up everywhere at the moment, and there are thousands of jobs available for plumbers, electricians and gas engineers who know how to save water, energy and the effect it has on the environment.
Last week, it was reported that a council-run housing scheme in Colchester is to create 2,200 jobs in the trades industry and it was announced this week that a new “eco-homes” development in Bradford is set to take place. 45 carbon neutral homes will be built and designed by Lovell and will create a number of jobs relating to installations of eco-friendly technology, such as communal mass boilers, photovoltaic panels and mechanical ventilation with heat recovery systems.
