Even though the economy in the US is in a slump, there is one job market that seems to be on the up and up. Solar jobs are growing steadily, along with a number of other green jobs.
“The solar industry has grown into a major economic force with more than 100,000 employees in the United States,” says Andrea Luecke, Executive Director of The Solar Foundation.
“We expect even greater growth in the foreseeable future. But policy-makers, workforce training providers, and the industry must work together to continue creating good jobs for skilled workers.”
As of August 2011, the Census identified over 17,198 solar employment sites and 100,237 solar jobs in all 50 states.
