At 5% Penetration Levels Solar Power Will Generate 10,000 to 20,000 New Solar & Industry Support Jobs
Solar Powered Economic Development at 5% Deployment Level
If a mere 5% penetration level was achieved for installing 5,000 kilowatt solar power systems on Arizona residential rooftops, it would require the installation of 83,940 solar power installations over a period of several years. At an average of 60 solar installs per year, the effort would require more than 1,300 new solar installation companies that would employ around 13,000 solar industry workers.
Solar Power Industry Trickledown Effect of Economic Development
Every new solar startup company would need to rent office space, buy vehicles, fill them up with tools and gas, buy office supplies, electrical hardware, solar panels, etc., etc. These companies would not just hire solar installers, they would all need to hire receptionists, sales people, marketing people, construction workers, accountants, etc. The trickledown effort to Arizona's overall economy would be very beneficial. No other industry in Arizona can provide this type of economic stimulus.
Unprecendented Arizona Solar Growth During 2009
For examle, during 2009 when solar incentives were at $3.00 per watt, Arizona's solar industry jumped from a handful of solar installation companies to well over 300+ new startup companies, which created more than 3,000 to 4,000 new jobs and injected several hundred million dollars back into the local economy.
The Solar Industry Could Generate 13,000 Jobs Paying $489 Million in New Salaries
A typical solar installation company can install five 5,000-watt solar power arrays per month or sixty systems per year. A 5% penetration rate would require approximately 1,399 solar power installation companies. A typical solar installation company has 10 employees, so this initiative should generate approximately 13,990 jobs. If each position paid a salary of $35,000, it would generate approximately $489,650,708 in new salaries that would be reinvested in Arizona's local economy.
Arizona Needs a Thriving Solar Industry for Economic Recovery
Arizona needs to utilize a Solar Tax Credit and SREC Trading Exchange to duplicate this success. This is positive proof that solar incentives are key to economic recovery for states like Arizona with strong sunshine and an economy that is heavily dependent on the construction industries for jobs. Every politician, public policy maker and economic development advisor should support the "Go Solar in Arizona" initiative.
