Solar’s sunny outlook on jobs

The solar energy industry created one out of every 50 new jobs added in America last year, or 2 percent of all new U.S. jobs, according to the 2016 National Solar Jobs Census. Now in its seventh year, the annual census was released by the Washington, D.C.-based Solar Foundation, a nonprofit solar energy advocacy group.

The census also reported that jobs in the U.S. solar industry now total more than 260,000 and have nearly tripled since 2010. Read more.
