Not just Solar generated electricity, but also solar heating systems, dehydrators, solar cookers and whatever else I am not thinking of.

White belt
Determine sun track through the year for a site
Locate best placement for photovoltaic panels on that site
Install a small solar powered device, such as an electric fence charger
Build a solar dehydrator and dry 10 pounds of fruits/vegetables
Build a solar cooker and prepare four meals with it

Green belt
Install a solar powered water heater
Install multiple photovoltaic panels hooked up to batteries and inverter (overlaps with electrical skill set)


Just something to get it started.
 
Seriously? That's what you're going with? I prefer this tiny ad:
