The Solar Foundation Has Released the National Solar Jobs Census 2013

The following excerpt is from the 61-page report:

 

As of November 2013, the solar industry has grown to 142,698 solar workers. This is an increase of almost 20% over our Census 2012 findings, and represents a growth rate that is ten times faster than what the overall U.S. economy experienced during that same time period. Over the next 12 months, nearly 45% of solar establishments expect to add jobs, while fewer than 1.9% expect to cut workers, yielding an expected 15.6% growth in employment. This finding is especially relevant given that employment in the overall U.S economy is projected to grow by only 1.4% over the next 12 months.
