Companies working with Green Mountain Power on its Kingdom Community Wind project are looking to hire workers to help with construction.
Green Mountain Power plans to build 21 wind power turbines in Lowell starting later this summer, and says its general contractor, Reed & Reed is hiring, along with three Vermont subcontractors.
Those include J.A. McDonald of Lyndon Center, which is doing site preparation and road work and needs equipment operators and laborers. Bates & Murray Electrical Contractors of Barre is hiring people to help with underground electrical work, and the Barre office of Maine Drilling and Blasting also is hiring.
A job fair this week drew about 60 local residents.
