There are many options for future growth in New York, given the state’s investment in clean energy businesses and community initiatives and statewide solar electric program (NY-Sun).
You could be working at the residential level, signing off on single family sized systems, or you could be part of a municipal or statewide renewable energy implementation project.
Here are two great examples:
Solar Installer: Assemble, install or maintain solar photovoltaic (PV) systems on roofs or other structures. Tasks include measuring, cutting, assembling and bolting structural framing and solar modules.
