SOC Job Classifications: Solar Photovoltaic Installers and Wind Turbine Service Technicians

The Standard Occupational Classification Policy Committee (SOCPC) carefully analyzed over 80 unique suggestions regarding "green" occupations and considered these recommendations from the perspective of the classification principles of the SOC. In many cases, the work performed in the "green" job was identical or similar to work performed in existing SOC occupations.

2010 Standard Occupational Classification (SOC)

Solar Photovoltaic Installers and Wind Turbine Service Technicians are now stand-alone occupations.

The SOCPC recommended adding Wind Turbine Service Technicians (49-9081) and Solar Photovoltaic Installers" (47-2231) to the revised 2010 SOC. Workers in both of these occupations perform tasks that are sufficiently distinct from tasks in existing SOC occupations, and analysis of reports provided by the U.S. Department of Energy and the California Employment Development Department, Labor Market Information Division provided evidence supporting the collectability of data on these proposed occupations.

"Workers in Solar Photovoltaic Installers (47-2231) were previously classified in multiple SOC occupations including two in major group 49-0000 Installation, Maintenance, and Repair Occupations, "Heating, Air Conditioning, and Refrigeration Mechanics and Installers" (49–9021) and "Installation, Maintenance, and Repair Workers, All Other" (49-9099).
