    Some of them extremely well paying, offshore wind, like oil rig jobs, in fact the same oil platform construction companies build platforms for HVDC marine grid equipment to support offshore turbines.

    These offshore jobs pay from 90k-120k

        and HVDC supergrid another 400k jobs.
        Pumped hydro storage, 260k to 380k, solar thermal about the same.
