This edition of Making Connections News features three interviews that David Butler, host of the Clean Power Planet podcast, did with folks from the New Energy Internship program for eastern Kentuckians. MACED, the Mountain Association for Community Economic Development, has developed this job training program with support from the Appalachian Regional Commission. These are paid positions that help participants move into energy efficiency jobs or start their own businesses. First we learn about the program from Rachel Norton, a residential energy specialist at MACED. Then we will hear from Frank Morris who interned in Hazard and now has a job as an energy auditor at the Housing Development Alliance, and John Craft who is finishing up an internship that is focusing on commercial energy efficiency. Find out more from MACED about internships that are currently available.
