Not a day goes by employment figures do not paint a dismal picture. Jobs are lost on a grand scale, and the United States workforce is scrambling to reeducate, retrain and switch professions. There is one field however, which is enjoying a serious upswing: careers in solar energy. The environmentally friendly procurement of energy and its various way of being utilized in the home or in business has given rise to the formation and development of green collar jobs which require filling.
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. Moreover, other careers in solar energy include the manufacture of home solutions that allow for an easy plug and play adaptability of various panel options in modern new home construction. Yet, did you know: the employability of trained solar technicians does not end with the home itself but instead goes much further and deeper than that.
Other careers in solar energy deal with the various public use venues that now rely on solar energy for lighting, signage, and several mechanical aspects of doing business. What is more, the large scale harnessing of solar energy requires not only installers and technicians, but also administrators and electricity flow designers who can adequately manage the alternate sources of energy concurrently with the conventional means of providing electricity. Education for these kinds of jobs is already being offered on the junior college level and also via distance learning venues.
