POWERING ECONOMIC REVIVAL

From rural areas like the Laurel Highlands to big cities like Philadelphia and Pittsburgh, clean energy workers are a growing and visible part of the state’s economy. They build wind farms, develop equipment and parts for solar and wind companies and retrofit schools, homes and businesses to make them more energy efficient. At a time of growing income inequality across the nation, these jobs earn family-sustaining wages and salaries.

Led by one of the nation’s strongest energy efficiency markets, E2’s 2018 Clean Jobs Pennsylvania report finds there are more than 86,000 clean energy jobs in Pennsylvania across all 67 counties — the 11th most clean jobs among all 50 states and the District of Columbia.
