Installing solar panels would fall under construction.
The contractor would be required to be a licenese electrical contractor.
Most electrical contractors who employ full time electricians are not union.
Your large electrical contractors who bid on large contracts tend have union electricians that are assigned from the IBEW union local. Once the contract/job is completed those electricians are usually laid off and they go back to the union hall looking for another job.
We spend a lot more money giving it away to foreign countries like Israel. Why not pump it into the economy here? It's not like it's flushed down the toilet like it is in Iraq or Afghanistan.
Would you have been against the CCC during the Great Depression too?
Btw I will be running all my utilities on solar and wind in the near future much to the chagrine of my power company. And it does take some serious electrical skills to pull it off safely and correctly. Fortunately I get help from a family member that has those skills and knowledge.
I get that such people don't like unions, but unless other industries are willing to move forward with initiatives to create new jobs especially where opening up new industries is concerned, I don't have a problem with the government taking the lead in partnership with unions to train our veterans in growth industries at good pay.

Another government program that will probably end up costing far, FAR more then it ever saves.
