Hawaii Renewable Energy Jobs Charging Up
The big mover locally is obviously Solar. It's no secret that the big gains we've had, and will have, in renewable energy employment in Hawaii is centered around this side of the green surge. It just makes sense for a place that has year-round sun. It's not just Hawaii, either. Solar jobs are going to continue their upward climb all over the US for some time to come.
This calls for a lot of people to not only sell panels and systems, but also install them. Local companies need salesman to take advantage of the boom we're having and they often don't require experience specifically in solar. If you've got a solid background behind you, you can make the leap into this growth industry.
Installers do need some technical knowledge, which makes it difficult for some without the training already behind them. Certain companies are willing to teach on-the-job, but that's often the minority in the listings. This might be a good reason for going back to school to get that knowledge. Many of the Hawaii Community Colleges have courses available, and for an affordable price.
If you're ready for a Renewable Energy Career in Hawaii, you're exactly where you need to be. We've got positions working in Wind, Solar & other Green energy sectors. You'll find here Renewable Energy jobs on Oahu, Maui, Big Island & Kauai. Hawaii Job Engine is always renewing the listings here so if the perfect job isn't here now, it will be soon!

Energy Employment in Hawaii a Definite Starter – With One Exception
Petroleum is going through big changes locally, particularly with the closing of the refineries that once served the Islands. That has meant the end of jobs not only at those facilities but also related ones. Although there is still a need for petroleum inspectors & surveyors, those in this field will experience a huge demand decline in the coming years, if they haven't already.
Where Hawaii Energy Jobs News is Good
Fortunately for other Hawaii utilities and energy jobs, the news is much better. Water & liquid waste treatment plant workers are looking upward at a 21% hike in their options by 2020. This was found through a Hawaii Labor Department study, which also predicted over 13% more power plant manager & operator jobs in the same period.
The juice those power plants produce points to a demand for electricians in hawaii that's coming. You should see 340 added slots for people with those skills across the State. Those not using electricity are a new demographic, feeding solar sales. Solar salesman & installers are having their own boom right now that should continue.
Don't limit your search to this category, either. Look also in our Electrical/Mechanical jobs, too, where we have even more employers seeking help. Whether you're seeking energy & utility jobs on Maui, Kauai, or the Big Island, we've got the jobs for you, too.
