Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger came to Los Angeles on Monday to announce a new $75-million "clean energy workforce training program," which he said would help train more than 20,000 workers for green-sector jobs.

The program is intended to train young workers and the unemployed to become solar installers, green-building designers and weatherization installers.

The state received $20 million for the job-training effort from the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act. The rest will come from the California Energy Commission, as well as community groups and educational institutions.

The announcement was made at Los Angeles Trade-Technical College.
