Solar industry could provide jobs for coal workers [Video]

As the world continues to move away from burning fossil fuels like coal for energy, a corresponding shift in the labor field will also have to take place to provide jobs for those no longer employed in the coal industry.

Thankfully, according to a new study published in the journal Energy Economics, the skill set necessary to work in the solar industry is fairly similar to the one needed in the coal sector.

Further, the report noted that retraining workers to move from the coal industry to solar probably won’t cost that much either. Trina Solar is dedicated to helping the world move away from fossil fuels and toward clean, renewable energy sources like solar power.
