How to get a solar job in Canada
Solar panels are not cheap, but they are essential to powering a household with a small solar array.
Solar panel prices have gone up in recent years as demand has exploded for panels in the developing world, but there are plenty of jobs available.
As a solar energy industry matures, however, a lot of the jobs will be located in China, a major solar market for the U.S.
A lot of jobs in the U-M solar industry have gone to Chinese workers, says Michael Condon, an energy policy analyst with the Canadian Solar Energy Association.
That’s because the U of M has no jurisdiction over China and there are no legal barriers to hiring a Chinese worker.
But even with the U, it’s still an international market.
Condon says there’s no way to fully understand the impact of the U’s solar laws.
But he says there are still some important lessons to learn.
For instance, the solar industry is very fragmented.
Solar panels can’t be imported or exported and there’s very little oversight of them, so workers are vulnerable to theft.
That makes it very difficult to identify and stop, says Condon.
In the U., you’ll find a lot more workers with green cards and green cards can be used to fill in for workers who are leaving the solar job market, he says.
But it’s not the same thing.
“It’s not like you can just pick up and go to China, say, and hire a Chinese person to replace you,” he says, adding that many workers may be more willing to take the risk of going to the U because of a green card, rather than a green-card worker.
Crowded solar job marketsThe U.M. solar industry has been booming in recent months.
In January, the U — along with Canada, Denmark and Norway — became the first countries in the world to enact a law that allows U.K. citizens to work in solar jobs.
But the U is not the only place in the global solar industry that has seen a surge in solar job opportunities.
Solar companies like SunPower, Ener1 and Sunrun are expanding their solar projects in Australia and other countries.
And the U has also seen an increase in solar companies.
The solar industry grew by 1.3 million jobs between March 2015 and March 2016, and the number of U. S. solar jobs is expected to increase by an additional 2 million jobs in 2019, according to a recent report by the Solar Foundation.
The U of C has also been a leader in recruiting solar workers, hiring 2,000 solar workers in 2017 alone.
The University of Michigan hired a total of more than 5,000 graduates in the past year.
“It’s very important for U of T to recognize that solar is a very attractive industry for people with green card status and green card workers who want to work on projects that have green cards,” says Cordeiro, who says he’s seen a steady increase in the number and quality of job opportunities for solar workers.
“And that’s what we’re trying to encourage.
It’s not just for solar.”
Cordeiro says the U should be focused on attracting foreign workers, and not just attracting the best candidates from China.
He says the solar company should not be allowed to just say, “Well, we can’t hire from China because we can only hire from U of A, but we’re just going to put a green label on it, so we can hire from Canada and the U.”
That would have a chilling effect on job creation, Cordeires says.
“The more we can recruit from outside the U in a particular region, the more U of Y will have, the stronger the green label becomes,” he said.
Cordeires also says the Canadian government should encourage U of S companies to recruit from the U instead of from China and other developing countries.
The University of Toronto’s Cordeirises says U of R’s solar jobs have increased more than 400 per cent in the last four years.
That may be a good thing for UofS graduates, but it doesn’t help Canadian students looking for a solar career, he adds.
