"Helios USA believes the solar industry can be a catalyst for long-term economic and employment growth, particularly in manufacturing," explains Steve Ostrenga, Chief Executive Officer of Helios USA.
Helios USA, LLC, a solar manufacturer based in Milwaukee, Wisconsin, is pleased to announce that it is co-hosting a reception marking the release of the 2010 National Solar Jobs Census. The release reception, which is co-hosted by RenewableEnergyWorld.com, will take place October 13 during Solar Power International 2010 in Los Angeles, California.
The National Jobs Census gathers data on U.S. solar labor supply and demand for all types of jobs associated with the solar industry. The purpose of the census is to provide stakeholders with timely and credible information for better understanding the solar industry's labor market conditions and potential for growth.
The National Jobs Census is being conducted by The Solar Foundation in collaboration with Cornell University and with support from the Solar Energy Industries Association (SEIA) and the Solar Energy Power Association (SEPA).
"Helios USA believes the solar industry can be a catalyst for long-term economic and employment growth, particularly in manufacturing," explains Steve Ostrenga, Chief Executive Officer of Helios USA. "The release of the first National Jobs Census is an unprecedented opportunity for a comprehensive review of how well the industry is doing. More importantly, it will help us determine what we need to do in the future to ensure the solar industry achieves its full economic potential in the United States."
