Why is Solar a Good Career Move?

The solar transition is well and truly here. It’s only going to get more prevalent in the next few years, so it’s made many electricians wonder if upskilling into this sector is a good career move to make.

It’s expected that in the near future, renewables – which solar is part of – will be the main energy source powering homes, businesses, and other dwellings. Some companies are expecting a five-fold increase in the number of new homes built with solar technology from 2023 onwards, meaning there will be a big surge in jobs for solar electricians and installers.

The UK solar panel industry will be worth an estimated £592.8m by the end of 2022 and upskilling into this industry is the best way to progress your career. Soon enough, everyone will be wanting solar energy as a power source, and we must be ready to meet the demand.

In addition to career growth, you’ll be conducting work that will have a positive influence on the environment. It’s no secret we all need to be doing our bit to help make the world a more environmentally friendly place and transitioning our reliance on fossil fuels to renewable energy, like solar, is a sure-fire way to do so.

Essentially, you will be at the forefront in the fight to reduce the negative impacts of climate change whilst also reducing the pressures the UK will face as a result of inflation. Industry experts have said sales of solar panels have risen exponentially as a result of the cost-of-living crisis and the hike in energy bills.

With so many more solar panels being installed across the country, there is a greater need for qualified installers and electricians to keep them in good working order and thorough maintenance. The demand for clean energy is only growing and there will be a great need for as many qualified solar electricians as possible.

The possibilities are endless and the incentives for you as a renewable installer are endless, too, making it one of the best career moves to undertake as an electrician.
