If you're looking for a career with a bright future, you may want to shine a light on the solar industry. The National Solar Job Census 2011, recently published by the Solar Foundation, shows job growth in the solar sector at 10 times the national average for all industries. The solar industry's 6.8 percent job growth, which netted more than 6,700 new jobs between August 2010 and August 2011, is in sharp contrast to the national average of just 0.7 percent growth, and the decline of 2 percent in jobs in the fossil fuel electricity generation industry.
