BECOMING A SOLAR TECHNICIAN
Solar power is the fastest-growing source of new energy. Solar panels have been around for decades, but it was not until the mid-2000s that more cost-effective panels were developed allowing this low-carbon and renewable energy from the sun to go mainstream. The cost to install solar has dropped by more than 70 percent since 2010, according to the Solar Energy Industries Association (SEIA). Not only have large corporations like Walmart, Google, Starbucks, Target, and General Motors signed deals for renewable energy, but household adoption is booming as well.

A SOLAR TECHNICIAN DO
Solar technicians are responsible for assembling, installing, and maintaining solar panel systems on rooftops or other structures. Solar technicians are often mechanically minded and like to work outdoors. Their work is physical, requiring them to be on their feet most of the day, climb ladders, and carry the panels. A solar technician cannot be afraid of heights and should be comfortable working individually as well as in groups. The installation of solar panels often requires the ability to work as part of a team, while service and maintenance are often solo work.
Installation requires the use of hand tools such as drills and screwdrivers. The panels must then be connected to the electrical grid, a process usually done by more experienced workers. The installation of solar panels also includes setting up batteries, pumps, fans, controls, and support structures so that the solar panels function properly. Once installed, the solar panels must be tested, which includes ensuring that everything is correctly wired and grounded. Some states require licensed electricians to perform the final testing. Once the system is fully installed, any openings in the roof must be sealed and everything weatherproofed. Outside of the initial installation, technicians also regularly service and maintain existing systems and troubleshoot equipment deficiencies or malfunctions.
