AES is committed to leading an equitable and responsible transition to cleaner energy resources by working closely with communities, customers, landowners, state agencies, educational institutions, elected officials and other stakeholders.
AES partnered with Louisiana Delta Community College to provide workforce development and training in Morehouse Parish. As part of this effort, AES funded $30,000 in full scholarships for 15 students to cover their participation in the Heavy Equipment Operator Course, which is applicable to clean energy project construction.
The AES and Louisiana Delta Community College partnership was the result of strong coordination with Morehouse Economic Development Corporation, Louisiana Employment Services and the Oak Ridge solar project contractor, Primoris Services. These groups came together in 2022 and hosted a job fair that brought in more than 150 local residents.
