Solar energy is one of the fastest-growing industries in the world. Even with the COVID-19 pandemic, the U.S. solar industry has surpassed 40% growth. And it looks like the trend will continue for the next 10+ years.

Solar companies have found that veterans are valuable candidates for careers in many different aspects of the industry. In fact, military representation in the solar workforce has risen almost 20% during the past five years, as solar employers in all 50 states recruit veteran talent. 

From project development and management, engineering, operations and logistics, business development, sales, construction and installation, and much more, the solar industry offers a tremendous wealth of opportunity — hardhats optional. 

The Solar Ready Vets Network connects military talent to solar career pathways. The U.S. Department of Energy has funded several coordinated initiatives. The Solar Ready Vets Network is expanding solar training, credentialing, and employment opportunities for military talent at all levels of the workforce. This program helps to support smooth transitions from active duty to leadership roles in solar.

Know that your purchase of solar is helping veterans in their move to careers outside of the military. And if you or someone you know is making that transition, solar offers diverse, stable careers in a growing industry.
