The report shows that industry jobs have begun to recover already. The low point, the report says, hit in May when the jobs count in North Carolina was down more than 37,000 to about 85,500 workers. It had recovered to 91,340 jobs by the end of June.

North Carolina’s July figures were a little better than that, coming out to 21,214 jobs lost since the end of 2019.

That 18.8% drop in employment through July compares with the pre-pandemic expectation that clean-energy jobs would grow 7.6% this year in North Carolina.
