WSU to get smart grid training money

Washington State University will get $2.5 million to teach students about green engineering and smart grid technology, Sen. Maria Cantwell announced on Thursday.

WSU along with two other state groups will share more than $11 million going to smart-grid related training, Cantwell’s office said in a media release.

The $11 million is part of $100 million in grid funding announced by the Department of Energy, for 54 projects nationwide. The federal money is to be combined with $95 million provided by the institutions and partnering companies and manufacturers.

Centralia College will get $5 million for training utility workers in the Pacific Northwest.

And Incremental Systems Corp., in Issaquah, will get $3.6 million to train operators, engineers and military veterans.
