If green energy is supposed to provide millions of jobs and save the California economy I would think it would take a heck of a lot more than a measly $250,000 grant to train
even a fraction of the needed workforce.
A few years ago I was involved in a federal high tech jobs program and millions were spent to train just 300 people.
Sempra must not anticipate needing more than a handful of "green" workers for the next several years.
Currently I cannot find any of these green jobs being offered on the Caljobs website so we have a long, long way to go before any significant employment can come from this.
