The Electrical Power Distribution (EPD) program at Moraine Park Technical College’s Beaver Dam campus received an addition to its instructional fleet of three vehicles.

 

Alliant Energy recently donated a GMC 3500HD truck to the program, worth about $5,000. “This fourth vehicle will enable us to have more students training at the same time,” said Moraine Park EPD instructor Bill Ferguson.

Alliant also donates training assistance – for example, sending several engineering employees to show Moraine Park students how to engineer and stake a distribution line.

 

“We appreciate the opportunity to partner with Moraine Park, and look forward to continuing to play a role in the education and training of Wisconsin’s next generation of line technicians,” said Steve Logan, manager of customer service for Alliant Energy’s Beaver Dam office.
