USA: Solar Heating and Cooling Gets Less Attention

Submitted by Baerbel Epp on September 30, 2012

The US-American solar heating and cooling industry has been receiving significantly less attention than solar electricity technologies. An example of that is the webpage “My Solar Job”, which gathers profiles of people who have worked in the solar industry in the States since June 2012. So far, 148 US-Americans have posted a picture which shows them working with solar technology. Only a few of them are actually from the solar heating and cooling industry, whereas the majority works in the photovoltaic business.
