U.S. Solar jobs jump 20% in biggest climb for past four years

U.S. Solar jobs jump 20% in biggest climb for past four years01/27/2014 4:28 PM
U.S. solar companies added 20 percent more jobs in the 12 months through November, the biggest climb since an industry-funded group began its survey four years ago.

The survey of more than 15,000 employers found 23,682 jobs were added, with installation accounting for about half of the industry’s 142,698 workers, the nonprofit Solar Foundation concluded in a report posted on its website today. The rate is 10 times more than the national average for job growth, as a continued decline in installation costs spurs demand for solar power systems.

“The solar industry’s job-creating power is clear,” Andrea Luecke, president of the Washington-based foundation, said in the statement. “For the fourth year running, solar jobs remain well-paid and attract highly skilled workers.”
