The crawl to greener energy sources means more solar panels, which means more solar panel installers. While the projected job outlook for PV installers is 63 percent, it comes with a caveat — this job market is dependent on government incentives, with states that provide things like tax rebates and subsidies having more available jobs. Currently, there are 9,700 PV installers in the United States, and that job growth is projected to increase to 15,800 by 2028.
The highest-paid PV installers made over $63,580 while the lowest made $30,180 in 2018.
