The results are in. Growing 12 times faster than the rest of the country’s economy, solar and other clean-energy jobs are among the fastest growing in the market. Energy jobs are putting more Americans to work as efforts turn toward sustainability issues, a trend that’s happening with solar power companies in San Diego.
In fact, according to an Energy and Employment Report for 2017, the solar industry now employs more workers than the oil, gas, and coal industries combined. Analysts see this growth in employment as a clear sign that renewable energy will soon replace fossil fuels.
The renewable energy sector is producing more employment opportunities per dollar invested, giving additional evidence the smarter investment is moving away from fossil fuels. Jobs in the sustainable energy market are spread across the country, well paying, and reach both manufacturing and executive levels. Because these opportunities are diverse, solar continues to be extremely attractive for all types of professionals looking to switch careers into this lucrative market.
How Solar Power Companies in San Diego Are Helping Create Jobs
Semper Solaris is proud to be leading the charge in the growing renewable energy sector. We have seen incredible growth over the last few years as one of the leading solar power companies in San Diego. Coupled with this boom has been an increase in the number of troops returning from deployment in the past two decades.
This is something that is near and dear to our hearts here at Semper Solaris. Why? We are a veteran-owned company that is founded on the Marine Corps motto of Semper Fidelis, or “always faithful.” That means we are faithful to our customers and employees, many of whom are veterans themselves.
Why do we focus so much on creating jobs for veterans? Quite simply, we believe in providing opportunities for those who have served our country and rewarding their sacrifice. They are uniquely qualified and deserve as much opportunity as their civilian colleagues. We take pride in paving the way for employing veterans in our industry and hope that other companies step up in a similar way.
We are confident that veterans make some of the most dedicated, disciplined, and faithful employees, bringing their military values to the forefront on every job. As solar power companies in San Diego continue to expand, we are determined to provide further job opportunities for troops returning home from serving our great country.
