Solar Energy Industry Workers

Advancement Prospects

Advancement opportunities vary by profession. For example, solar panel installers may advance to positions of higher responsibility such as managing other workers. With experience, they may opt to start their own businesses specializing in panel installation and maintenance. Engineers and scientists may start with a position at a small company with local interests and advance to a position of higher responsibility within that same company (for example, director of research and development). Or they may move on to a larger more diverse company such as a public utility, whose interests may cover a broader area.They may also teach at universities and write for various publications.
