The Solar Foundation’s 2017 National Solar Jobs Census found the solar industry employed 21,599 veterans throughout the United States, or 9% of all solar workers in the nation. This is more than the 7% veteran employment percentage of overall workers in the economy.1 Many of these jobs are in the areas of installation, production, manufacturing, sales or management throughout a number of solar companies. While this number is above the national percentage for industry, there is significant room for growth. The MREA’s approved training will give those who have served an opportunity to join the growing renewable energy industry. Jobs in solar and wind not only help more veterans enter the workforce, but they also promote more domestic energy production, which lessens our nation’s dependence on foreign oil.
