A solar energy project manager is a key position in a solar energy business, and they are often paid handsomely.
Key points:The job description requires a degree in electrical engineering, but the pay varies depending on the size of the project, the company, and the industryThe job requires a solar system, and its costs vary depending on whether it is a photovoltaic or battery projectA solar power project manager’s salary ranges from $100,000 to $250,000A solar energy company pays a solar project manager as much as $250 a day in salaryWhen you’re looking for a solar jobs, it’s important to pay your solar energy worker the right wage, a solar industry group says.
The Solar Energy Industry Association says that Solar Energy Group’s contract solar power facility manager, who manages solar power projects, is paid between $100 and $250 per day.
“That is a lot of money for a project manager,” Solar Energy Association CEO Dave Thompson said.
“They get to make up to $125,000 a year.”
Solar Energy Association has compiled a list of solar energy job titles.
“Project managers are the people who help design the designs for the solar power plants,” Mr Thompson said, “so they’re very important.”
Solar power company Solar Energy Australia (SESA) paid its solar power manager $250 for a two-month contract, he said.
Solar Energy Australia was the largest employer in the solar energy industry in 2014-15, with 2,500 employees.
Solar energy company Solar Power Australia paid its project manager $100 a day.
Mr Thompson said the solar project managers are often hired through the solar industry’s recruitment process, which he said was a highly skilled one.
“Solar companies recruit from an enormous number of candidates,” Mr Thomson said.
There is also a renewable energy industry pay ladder, which allows companies to pay their solar energy workers a fair wage and set them up with the right training.
“We don’t think solar energy is really a sustainable sector,” Mr Tran said.
But some solar workers are finding it hard to break into the industry.
“There are some companies that pay people $100 or $150 a day and then they start asking for overtime,” Mr Truong said.
Mr Tran, who also runs a business, said that some companies were looking for people who are good with computers and who can work from home.
“If they can’t afford the extra costs of being in a high-rise, it is going to be very hard to get into the solar sector,” he said.
“Solar energy is a relatively young sector, so there are still a lot more jobs to be had in solar than people realise,” Mr Treng said.
