Fulfilling Skilled Trade Needs for Dairies in the West

Inside and outside of dairy, electrical work is a growing trade. According to the US Bureau of Labor Statistics, electrician jobs are expected to grow by 8.4% from 2019 to 2029 – more than double the growth rate projected for all occupations.

Demand for electricians is rising due to an ever-present evolution in technology and overall increase in use of electricity. As more dairy systems and processes are automated, our industry is contributing to the increased demand for electricians.

North Valley Electric (NVE) in Turlock, CA, was born of that exact demand, earlier in 2021. From feeding calves to harvesting, cooling and storing milk, dairies are consuming and relying on electricity more than ever. NVE is strategically located in the heart of Western dairy country, to be there for those dairy farmers.

Agriculture is one of three key industries serviced by NVE, who also specializes in industrial and commercial electricity projects. NVE electricians are trained on all of the major dairy technology today, from where the cows live to where their milk is harvested.

Industrial customers can count on NVE for installation, maintenance, troubleshooting and repairing a wide range of industrial electrical equipment and the controls that go along with it. NVE also carries decades of experience in the planning, installation and maintenance of any commercial construction project, including updates to existing buildings.

Even as solar power projects pop up, dairy farms will always rely on expert electrical services to keep cows comfortable and everything running like it should – likely contributing to the projected increase in demand for electricians in the next ten years. Thanks to partnerships with companies like NVE, TDS customers know they have the industry’s best experts involved in every aspect of their construction and maintenance projects.
