Solar photovoltaic installers (PV) are given the task of assembling, setting up and maintaining rooftop or other systems that convert sunlight into energy. Due to the increased demand for eco-friendly structures and solar powered electricity systems, this career path is predicted to grow by over 50 percent from 2020 to 2030, a much higher average than normal.
