More than 142,000 Americans work in the solar energy industry, with 20-percent job growth between 2012-13. Most solar jobs – about 70,000 – are on the installation side. Other positions include manufacturing, sales, and management. Increasingly common sights on rooftops and in fields across the country, photovoltaic cells directly convert sunlight into electricity, helping lower electric bills for homeowners, farmers, and businesses. Larger, utility-scale solar developments are being built on land with limited economic value. For example, in California’s Antelope Valley, a Berkshire Hathaway subsidiary is developing the world’s largest solar farm.
