Brothers and Sisters,
We currently have several Solar projects with Energy Storage PLA's in place and waiting for funding. It is critical that we make sure these jobs are performed by our Inside Wiremen contractors (C-10) and not by a purely solar company (C-46). If we lose these jobs to the C-46 contractors, anyone can do them and that means laborers stealing our work again.
The State of California has required state certification for all electricians for many years now. Most contractors will not hire you until your state cert is validated. If you already have a state cert, please DO NOT forget to renew it in a timely manner! The State has a backlog of about 8-10 weeks before it shows on their database as being renewed.
We have two locations that we dispatch out of for the convenience of members, Fresno and Visalia. Our main Fresno Hall is at 5410 E. Home, Fresno, CA 93727. Visalia Dispatch will be held at 3200 S. Fairway Suite C. It's on the corner of Dorothea and Fairway.
All first time dispatches MUST be from our main office in Fresno.
