Despite there being a push to bring some jobs back by removing restrictions like the carbon dioxide limit, these opportunities are getting axed and affecting many communities. It’s clearly time for coal miners to prepare for different jobs, and a Chinese company is hoping to aid the big issue.

Goldwind, a turbine manufacturer that works with the US, announced that they were going to offer free training for former coal miners. The announcement came at an energy conference in Wyoming, which is still one of the heaviest coal manufacturers in the country. The focus will be at Carbon County, one of the first sites for coal mines.
