Energy Transmission and Distribution Workers

Employment of power plant operators, distributors, and dispatchers is projected to decline 8 percent from 2012 to 2022, according to the U.S. Department of Labor (DOL). Technological improvements have made some equipment more efficient and reliable, and the use of automatic controls is reducing the need for people to monitor and regulate transmission and distribution systems. Despite this prediction, there will be good opportunities for those with related training and good mechanical skills as a result of the  large number of workers who are expected to retire during the next decade.
