A Day In The Life Of A Renewable Engineer
WORKING CONDITIONS
FUTURE JOB OUTLOOK
The future job outlook for a renewable engineer is very positive. Consumption of energy is expected to increase by 44% through 2030, and renewable energy is increasing by an average of 2.9% per year. Overall, oil consumption for energy will be less than it did in the past, while wind and solar power will be used more by 11%.
ANNUAL SALARY/ PERSONAL CHARACTERISTICS
The expected annual salary ranges from $18,440-$110,590. Some geoscientists earn an average of $79,160 and agricultural managers have average earnings of $40,300 per year. Characteristics that an employer may want from someone in the field is for the person to be knowledgable, scientific, confident, and self-motivated.

REQUIREMENTS

SPECIAL EDUCATION/ TRAINING
A typical day of a renewable engineer may include speaking with customers about clean energy solutions and world class training about renewable energy. Lastly, they can arrange customer consultations in their homes.
Some requirements for this job is that you should have a strong background in science and math. Some things that are also useful for workers who run design programs is computer classes. Lastly, learning a foreign language is highly useful because many companies are located abroad.
To work in this field, a high school diploma and a bachelor's degree for technical and engineering positions is required. Lastly, certification is recommended for most technical positions and licensing required for engineering positions.
Some working conditions for this job are that biologists and fisheries' managers work at or near ponds and rivers. All workers who work outside must deal with hazardous conditions such as water, high winds, rain, and extreme temperatures. Most non-technical workers work indoors in comfortable offices.
HIGHLIGHTS
About Renewable Energy/ Career
Renewable energy is defined as a clean and unlimited source of power of fuel. It is not based on extracting a limited source, but uses sources such as wind,

. For example, solar energy is responsible for 1% of electricity. There are different ways to turn the sun's energy into a useful power source.
PLACES OF EMPLOYMENT/ INTEREST IN FIELD
Some places of employment are Covanta Energy, NJ Solar Power, and K.G. Companies
Yes, I would be interested in the field of renewable energy. I believe that as an energy source that will never run out, employment in this field will be consistent. Since renewable energy facilities require less maintenence, this reduces the
cost of operation. This field has a successful future and also
brings economic advantages yet to come.

QUESTION 1:
As an owner of a solar system company, how does the future of renewable energy look like?
Mr. Powell Says,
The future of solar energy is bright (excuse the pun). New ideas, like solar, start out with a few adventurous people getting involved. Assuming it is a good idea, more and more people decide to get involved and eventually enough people get into the idea that it reaches a "tipping point" where so many people are involved the idea gains acceptance with the majority of the people and grows on its own and there is no chance of it stopping. Solar is there. You see more and more installations on homes and businesses every day.
QUESTION 2:
How does New Jersey's energy compare to other states?
Mr. Powell Says,
New Jersey is a leader in renewable energy in America. New Jersey is second only to California in the amount of solar energy installations. This is due to the vision of the New Jersey legislature which passed the laws in 2001 that started the solar industry in New Jersey.
QUESTION 3:
Being an owner, what educational requirements did you need to get that place in your company?
Mr. Powell says,
I attended Rutgers University and studied engineering. Solar is a technical field and you need to understand electricity and physics
QUESTION 4/5:
What role do you play in your company and how does it impact the others around you?
Mr. Powell Says,
I am the chief designer for the company as well as the president. I decie what products we will use (I try to use the best) and what price we will sell our systems for. Also I make sure that the people who do the actual installation work do the job correctly so the customer doesn't have any problems.
QUESTION 6:
How does the customer benefit from using this source of energy that your company provides?
Mr. Powell Says,
The customers benefit first from lower cost of electric. Everyone wants to save money and my customers get cheaper electric which saves them money, second they get to live in a cleaner environment along with the rest of us because less coal and oil is burned to make electricity.
QUESTION 7/8:
How much does your company profit from solar energy and how does this type of energy help your job outlook for the future?
Mr. Powell Says,
The goal of any business is to make enough money to pay the people who work there and hopefully to make a profit for the owner or owners of the business. We manage to do both. As I talked about before, solar energy is growing and will only grow more over the coming years so I think it is a good business which will give me a secure job in the future.
