Solar Jobs Creating Opportunity Across The Country

Solar Jobs Creating Opportunity Across The Country

Despite the aggregate job losses at the national level, solar employment actually grew in 29 states in 2018 – over half of the country. Even more encouragingly, some of the biggest job gains were in states that have not been major solar markets historically but are starting to catch up in a big way. Major winners include:

Florida, with 1,769 new solar jobs, for a total of 10,358
Illinois, with 1,308 new solar jobs, for a total of 4,879
Texas, with 739 new solar jobs, for a total of 9,612
Ohio, with 644 new solar jobs, for a total of 7,162
Washington State, with 612 new solar jobs, for a total of 4,045
