Not a day goes by employment figures do not paint a dismal picture. As the job loss rises in the united states, workers are looking to relocate, retrain and switch professions. There is one field however, which is enjoying a serious upswing.
That is careers in solar energy. Green collar jobs are being created thanks to the environmentally friendly use of energy in businesses and homes.
Careers in solar energy include the manufacture of solar panels, the installation of said panels, and of course also the servicing of them, once installed. If you are interested in making consumer solar applications, one growing segment is the market for easily interconnectable panels, which can be adapted for different-sized homes, and added to new homes when they built. Yet, did you know that the demand for trained solar technicians does not end with the home itself but instead goes much further and deeper than that.
Other careers in solar energy involve public use venues which use solar energy for lighting, signs, and mechanical aspects.
The career of solar energy needs installers, technicians, administrators and electricity flow designers. They can manage this alternative source of energy using a conventional way to provide electricity. Education for these kinds of jobs is already being offered on the junior college level and also via distance learning venues.
