Solar jobs in the Australia.
The financial benefits of solar power are a compelling argument for homeowners and businesses, and the overall impact of solar power on the economy is just as positive. The solar energy industry is a national industry that provides high quality employment across the world. As more homes and businesses go solar, employment opportunities continue to grow.
The Solar Foundation's 2019 Solar Jobs Census underscores that growth:
Since 2010, employment in the solar industry has risen by 167%, reaching almost 250,000 jobs in 2019.
The Jobs Census describes that: "Between 2014 and 2019, solar jobs grew five times faster than the economy as a whole.".
The renewable energy industry provides more jobs and better wages for low and middle-skilled workers than the national economy as a whole. Wages for solar workers in Australia are also higher than comparable industries: the median pay for mid-level solar installers in 2019 was $40 an hour, compared to $30 for the overall Australian workforce. Many solar installers are small locally owned businesses, and support them brings more money to local economies.
Solar power is a key source of energy in Australia, and as the cost of solar energy continues to decline, all signs indicate that it is becoming an even larger part of Australian energy supply. This is good news for the economy and the environment.
