We truly enjoyed working from the Helios, the attention to detail to make it an Eco friendly asset to our industry should be commended. The quiet workspace you get when running on the solar power is delightful! Rob was pleasant to be around and always willing to help out. Thank you Rob and King Kong for bringing us the Helios!

The drivers were awesome to be with.  Hard working drivers!!   It really stands out when the drivers jump in to help set up base camp, and tear it down.  Not to mention always having a fresh green tea for me just when I needed it every time.  They really were great and I’d ask for them anytime we get vehicles from you. Thanks!

Rusty, Bruce and the guys at King Kong were a crucial asset to my photoshoot.  They took a lot of stress off of my plate and came through when I needed them, allowing me to focus 100% on the production.  Without a doubt, King Kong is now my go-to for production vehicles and I do not hesitate to recommend them to my colleagues.  And, not only is Rusty the best and most helpful driver I have ever had the pleasure of working with, he is also awesome with a fog machine!

The Helios is a great motorhome. Not only is it energy efficient but it offers a large space for production to work in. The copy machine is great because you can wirelessly print and make color copies and send faxes. The satellite phones came in handy when we realized we didn’t have any cell service on location. We received several compliments throughout the shoot day. Crew walked into the motorhome in awe of such a beautiful space.

Clean, green can mean lots of jobs

It has something to do with windmills — or hybrid cars.

It’s related to alternative and renewable energy. It’s solar power.

BLOG: Economy cut green jobs less, study says
COLUMN: Climate destroys, creates jobs

That’s what people told me comes to mind when they think of “green” or “clean” jobs. As one person summed up what they know about green jobs, “I really haven’t the foggiest.”

Green jobs are either “jobs in businesses that produce goods or provide services that benefit the environment or conserve natural resources” or they are “jobs in which workers’ duties involve making their establishment’s production processes more environmentally friendly or use fewer natural resources,” according to the federal Bureau of Labor Statistics.

What kinds of jobs might that be?

Here are a few green job openings I found through the staffing firm Greenjobs. They include energy adviser for Conservation Services Group, where you would conduct “residential energy assessments to identify energy-efficiency improvement opportunities.”

But not all of them sound so technical.

GCI Solar has a sales job opening. Conservation Services Group also is looking for someone to work with marketing to put in place “integrated marketing communications and advertising programs.” The company also wants a program operations manager for a high-efficiency furnace replacement program.

An investment company in the United Kingdom that operates in the renewable energy industry needs a portfolio manager to manage the firm’s assets. A company in Brazil with an expanding wind business needs a project manager to oversee “construction of several small and big onshore wind projects.”

A company that’s expert in “developing engineering and operating large-scale photovoltaic systems” seeks a lawyer.

A New York-based hospital needs a sustainability officer who will head a “comprehensive management system … that measures the impact of green initiatives … (and) directs general

Treehugger lists these job openings on its site: community organizer, community outreach manager, development coordinator, development director, executive assistant, freelance sustainability writer, funds administrator, research associate, sales agent. They are at such organizations as Audubon Center of the North Woods, Citizens Campaign for the Environment, Green Mountain Energy, Mohonk Preserve and Omega Institute for Holistic Studies.

On its site, GreenBiz.com has an opening for a research intern.

The solar industry is experiencing tremendous growth, says Ecotech Institute, which trains students for solar, wind and renewable energy jobs.

In the first quarter 2013, the institute’s Clean Jobs Index, which aggregates all available clean jobs in the United States, listed more than 8,000 solar jobs.

Since August 2012, Ecotech found that the U.S. solar industry has added nearly 14,000 new solar jobs — a 13.2% growth rate.

As solar power usage expands, more workers will be needed to manufacture solar panels, build power plants and install solar panels. Project managers will be needed to oversee the work and sales representatives to sell product.

Ecotech’s index also found almost 750,000 clean jobs posted across the USA between January and March 2013. States with the biggest gains in clean jobs were Alabama, Iowa, Michigan, Mississippi, Nebraska, Vermont and West Virginia.

As these goods and services expand, not just technical workers — such as wind technicians, energy engineers and electrical maintenance technicians — will be needed. All kinds of people could be in demand: administrative, finance, law, marketing and sales — as well as advocates, outreach folks, researchers and trainers.

So when you think green jobs, think what do companies that benefit the environment or conserve natural resources need to operate and grow?

Then think: How can I help them do that?
