Byron Benton, Training Director of the NECA- IBEW  Electrical Training Center in San Leandro, California said, "People will know the moment they first visit our new facility that IBEW and NECA are at the forefront of training and installing the newest electrical energy efficient systems that are vital to the future of our country. The fact that Envision Solar's products are designed and built in America provides an opportunity to put Americans back to work in new and vital energy industries.
