Online expert panel explain the “Transition to a Great Paying Green Job”
On Saturday January 15th, SolarFest and the 1786 Meeting House in Rupert are presenting a workshop of people who have already found exciting and profitable career opportunities in the trillion-dollar clean energy field. Join this online conversation to discover how they got the skills, and the breaks needed to grab these incredible opportunities and become part of the massive economic shift towards a sustainable 21st century economy.
Climate change is the defining issue of the 21st century. As NY Congressman Paul Tonko, Chairman of the House Subcommittee on Environment and Climate Change, recently said, “Jobs in Clean Energy fields have median hourly wages about 25% higher than the national wage.”
Replacing fossil fuels will require a veritable army of skilled planners, builders, technicians, and managers, as well as the new startup businesses to direct them. There is a once-in-a-lifetime chance for both young people and experienced workers to jump into faster growing and more rewarding occupations in solar power, electric vehicles, energy conservation, heat pumps, and more.
This free online session runs from 10:00 – 11:30 am on Saturday January 15h and includes plenty of time for questions and answers about how to find the right field for you. Register for this Zoom panel at www.SolarFest.org and learn what you can do to switch to a rewarding new career.
The 1786 Meeting House and SolarFest are co-hosting a series of free monthly workshops, but due to the continued uptick in COVID cases this workshop is only being offered online. You can also watch past sessions on making your home more comfortable and affordable at www.SolarFest.org.
