In the U.S, #SolarEnergy is one of the leading sources of renewable and clean energy. The fuel (sunlight) is free and no pollution or noise is generated through #PV systems. New technology, subsides and the creation of solar farms are few of the important employment avenues for the future engineers. To learn more about Solar Power, check out the Infographic below.
