The sun might be shining on new job opportunities for Albertans.
Rob Harlan is with the Solar Energy Society of Alberta. They do regular seminars to promote solar energy in our province.
This week, Harlan says he saw some unexpected faces.
“The type of people we’re seeing at this point are fairly different,” said Harlan “The general public is interested, homeowners, people who are looking for job opportunities.
Industry jobs seem to be leaning towards cleaner energy.
“There are a tremendous coming out of the oilsands in this economy who are very skilled,” added Harlan. “They’re looking for other opportunities.”
In the waning economy, clean energy seems to be a bright spot. (KLM)
