A Career Game-Changer

So it’s 2016 and you are taking a hard look in the mirror asking yourself, does what I’m doing matter? As climate change continues to alter the world we live in and threaten future generations you want to make a difference. But how? To make an impact you would have to put in real hours but you don’t have that kind of time – you need to pay the bills and have other responsibilities.

This is where an emerging career called “solar brokering” has been a game-changer. The concept is simple. Work on your own schedule to provide energy solutions for commercial clients through your existing and new relationships that you build and get paid for doing what you love. Solar energy is THE energy growth industry of the future and thus has unlimited earning potential. According to the Solar Energy Industries Association (SEIA), solar PV (photovoltaic) installation capacity (MW) grew by just under 50% from 2013 to 2014 and continues to grow. In the meantime, solar energy only accounts for only .4% of total U.S. electricity generation. This is a huge opportunity, especially for those who get in early.

Why Become A Solar Broker Now?

Since 2008, the cost of solar panels has plummeted more than 90% while more and more businesses and individuals install solar panels. In addition to low costs for the consumer, there are tax benefits, other federal and state incentives, and most solar panel providers have a 20 year warranty.

What’s more, clients need help choosing the right provider as more companies take advantage of the growing opportunities in the solar PV industry. There are hundreds of companies that offer a variety of solutions and so it becomes difficult choosing the right one. Instead of the client doing all that tedious work, they would hire a solar expert to help them make the right decision. Just like a real estate broker, a solar broker will help their clients choose the right provider while also helping their clients save time and money.
