Solar panel installer is the fastest-growing job in California, Hawaii, New Mexico, Florida, North Carolina, Missouri, Minnesota, and New Jersey. While wind turbine technician is the fastest growing job in Colorado, Texas, Nebraska, and Iowa. Texas is oil country! But the Lone Star State actually produces the most wind power of any U.S. state.
