Mining Jobs Left Behind

Check out this awesome slideshow of the world’s largest thermal solar plant under construction in the Mojave desert. When completed, the mind-blowing 300,000 mirrors will put out over 377MW of energy from the sun. It’s a massive undertaking, and one that will only set the bar higher and higher for thermal solar energy plants.

In related news, solar plant workers officially eclipsed the amount of miners in the United States. While the numbers fluctuate (80 solar jobs in Alaska compared to 43,000 in California), the total amount of people employed in the solar field is a whopping 119,000+.
