While you’re with family and friends celebrating the traditional end of summer with a pool party, watching season opening games of your favorite college football teams, or having a barbecue, it’s also a good time to reflect on our country’s greatest resource—our workers.
When it comes to the solar industry, there are now more than 255,000 workers nationwide according to the national solar jobs 2021 census published by the Interstate Renewable Energy Council. These dedicated solar employees are delivering the incredible value that solar provides, while helping improve the environment and strengthening local communities. The number of solar workers is rising every year as the renewable resources industry continues to grow.
Clean energy jobs are among the fastest growing of any employment sector in America. In fact, the solar industry offers tremendous career opportunities for workers from all backgrounds. These include electricians, mechanical installers, estimators, back-office staff, architects, and more. In our unpredictable global economic times, renewable energy is an industry that is continuing to help our economy grow, as well as protect the environment. The significant impact that solar can have on our daily lives is incredible. And it all starts with workers who are the heart of the solar industry.
