Solar jobs expanded by 25% and accounted for one out of every 50 new jobs created in America last year, according to the Solar Foundation’s annual census of solar employment.

2017 Leadership Index Coming Soon
We are gearing up now for the 2017 U.S. Clean Tech Leadership Index. Heading into our 8th year at the state level and 6th year for metro areas, the project has become the go-to resource tracking the U.S. clean-tech marketplace.
If you are interested in learning about 2017 partnership opportunities, contact Bryce Yonker.
As the federal government sends mixed signals to the sector, various states and cities across the country are focusing on capturing the benefits related to the development of clean energy markets. The Index will again draw from dozens of datasets to paint a comprehensive picture of the clean energy landscape across the country.
Keep your eyes out for the 2017 edition, coming in the second quarter. Download the 2016 U.S. Clean Tech Leadership Index summary here.
