Wind Energy Operations Managers

Work Environment

Wind energy operations managers work indoors and outdoors. They spend some time in offices, using computers to review and create reports and other documentation. They also spend a great deal of time outdoors, overseeing the operations of wind field equipment and systems. They work in all types of weather conditions and wind field sites can often be dusty or muddy. Operations managers wear protective clothing and gear and follow safety procedures. They usually work 40 hours per week, with more hours required when deadlines must be met or equipment needs to be fixed or upgraded. Wind fields are often located far from urban areas, requiring operation managers and other workers to travel to work sites.
