According to figures released today by the North Carolina Sustainable Energy Association (NCSEA), 21,200 clean tech energy workers still remain unemployed — nearly 19 percent of the state’s clean energy workforce.
In total, more than 511,000 clean energy workers across all 50 states, plus the District of Columbia, remain out of work since March.
The Old North State is among those hit hardest, ranking No. 6 on the list compiled in the report. California took the top spot with 89,158 job losses.
