“Effective climate policy has been stalled for years on the premise that reducing emissions necessarily harms economic growth and employment. The explosive growth of the solar industry and other renewable energy sources, along with the continued vitality of California’s overall economy after implementing ambitious emissions reduction goals, is powerful evidence to the contrary. Having reliable employment figures from trusted sources like The Solar Foundation helps move the debate forward and builds momentum to continue our efforts to build a clean energy future.”

The Solar Foundation publishes the annual Solar Jobs Census, the first and most authoritative national benchmark for solar jobs research. Learn more about how your support can help us continue this essential research on employment trends in solar.
