Solar energy consultant

"Solar energy consultant is a really good gig, especially for people who have been laid off from construction," says Vernon. "In places like Arizona, Utah and California, the starting pay is typically $15 to $17 an hour."

According to CareerBuilder.com's salary data site, CBsalary.com, solar energy installers earn $50,479 per year on average. To break into the profession, wannabe solar experts can enroll in a diploma or two-year degree program through their local community college or technical school, or they can get paid to learn by taking the apprenticeship route.
