Solar Energy Research & Education Foundation (SEREF) have developed a U.S. solar jobs map in Google Earth that shows where the jobs are likely to be created across the country. Clicking on the solar icon in each state shows annual job growth over an eight year period, as well as how the three most common solar technologies—photovoltaics, concentrating solar power, and solar water heating—stack-up in terms of job creation.

In addition to exploring the job growth numbers, you can view a 3-D simulation of the job growth over time and compare the solar energy resources of each state with their job growth potential, announced Google LatLong Blog.
