A new study reveals that jobs in the burgeoning renewable and clean energy sector can pay up to 25 percent more than the national median wage and are more likely to come with health insurance and retirement benefits.

The Houston Chronicle summarizes results from a study of federal occupational wage and benefits data, specifically within the energy sector.

The study was conducted by E2, Washington-based advocacy group American Council on Renewable Energy and California-based networking group Clean Energy Leadership Institute.
