Climate Week NYC, According to Solar One Staff

Climate Week means lots of goings-on about the best way to tackle the most complex and significant issue of our time: climate change. Here's what the Solar One staff are planning to do to get the most out of the events, experts and conversations happening around the city from the 23rd to the 29th of September (some events are this weekend).

From Amy Colorado, K-12 Environmental Educator:

Thursday September 26, 7pm: How to Talk to Your Friends About Climate Change at the American Museum of Natural History Kaufman Theater

Friday September 27, 12pm: Stop Food Waste at the Javits Center

From Emily Curtis-Murphy, Park Manager:

Tuesday September 24, 10am: The Power of Plants & Secrets of the Soil at the Ross Lecture Hall at the NY Botanical Garden

And of course, there's our own Clean Energy Connections Carbon to Value event at the Greene Space on Thursday September 26 at 6:30pm, and our GOSR Solar to Storage event at 25 Beaver Street at 12pm on Wednesday September 25.

Happy Climate Week, everyone! We hope to see you at one of these events!

New Report: Solar Installer to Be Fastest Growing Job from 2018-2028

Solar photovoltaic installer is expected to be the fastest-growing occupation in the country from 2018 to 2028, according to a new report from the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS).

Specifically, solar PV installer jobs are projected to grow 63.3% in this time frame, much faster than the average for all occupations, says the BLS. With a 2018 median pay of $42,680 per year, or $20.52 per hour, there were 9,800 jobs in this field last year.

Wind turbine technician came in second place for fastest-growing occupation from 2018 to 2028, with a 56.9% increase expected. The BLS says there were 6,600 of these jobs in 2018, offering a median pay of $54,370 per year, or $26.14 per hour.
