Most of these companies are small start-ups looking for VC money. What kind of job are you looking for? You need to be more specific than just wanting to work "in solar."

I think you've found the right area to look - every time I turn on the radio I hear a news story about a new solar company opening, new solar-friendly legislation, or a commercial for solar panels. I don't have specifics, but I think sending resumes out to companies you find through a google search would be productive.
