Going solar for job training

A friend who lives in the new Mueller development just got a solar panel installed on her roof, and she said that about a third of the home owners in that neighborhood have signed up to have the panels installed through a rebate program with the city.  The solar industry is a good place to look for job training.  See the CoolAustinJobs site for info about this and other green jobs. 

Austin Community College offers programs and scholarships in the renewable energy field.  And there are other ideas in the Texas Green Jobs Guidebook.  Check them out!
