New Online Solar Career Tool

Looking for a job in the solar industry? A new online tool makes it easier than ever to explore great solar career opportunities.

Developed by the Interstate Renewable Energy Council (IREC) as part of the Department of Energy's Solar Instructor Training Network, the new interactive solar career map website maps three dozen solar jobs across four sectors: production, design, sales and marketing, and installation/operations. According to the IREC website, a team of national experts selected the 36 occupations within the map. Each job requires some training in solar-specific skills and each is essential to building a thriving solar industry, the IREC said.

Visit the IREC information page outlining the map for more information, including an informative video.
