Recently, we talked about how solar energy can solve the climate changing crisis, but what we didn’t mention is how it is also aiding in our economic growth!
In the last 5 years, when unemployment rates were sky rocketing, solar energy employment rates were increasing by over 85%.
Since 2010, there have been over 173,000 new jobs in the solar industry alone.These jobs are not replacing old jobs but instead are brand new positions created within the industry due to its exponential growth.
This just goes to show that solar is a prevailing mechanism aiding in job creation and economic growth.
