What a career that supports green infrastructure? Have you heard of solar panels? Solar panel technicians are also known as solar panel installers or solar photovoltaic technicians - they assemble, install, and maintain solar panels. People who might pursue this path might have an interest and ability to work with electrical systems. It doesn't hurt to know your way around a toolbox, either! Solar panel technicians are not only savvy with their hands but are also detail-oriented and interested in renewable energy.
