Welcome to the Earth Wind and Fire group here on RBC! The wind, solar and solar-thermal industries in America represent thousands of jobs and stands to gain BIG TIME from the stimulus package that created a mechanism for renewable energy innovators to bypass Wall Street and monetize tax credits directly through the U.S. Treasury, for any project that starts between now and the end of 2010.

Hopefully this group will be a conduit for those seeking business in the sector!

There's going to be huge demand for civil, electrical, chemical and mechanical engineers to work on roads, bridges, water, thermal installations and in other related industries and if you're having trouble finding any of these (and you probably are/will 'cause schools haven't been putting them out in any great numbers for the last 20 years!) to work in these challenging and up-coming industries, we can help!
