Powering the COVID-19 Recovery
The Commonwealth of Pennsylvania is one of the most significant producers of energy and employers of energy workers in the nation, and the Clean Energy economy accounts for a greater share of the workforce than ever. Since 2014, the number of clean energy jobs in the Commonwealth has grown by nearly 60 percent, employing over 87,000 Pennsylvanians in high quality, high-wage jobs. While the industry was not immune to the job losses associated with the COVID-19 pandemic, the Clean Energy sector proved more resilient than other sectors, and 2020 jobs data shows a strong rebound
Pennsylvania is known as a major fossil fuel producer, but the Commonwealth was also ranked 11 for clean energy employment nationwide. With more robust investment in the clean energy economy, the state could create thousands more high-quality, high-paying jobs for Pennsylvanians, generate new revenues for state and local government and businesses and improve the health and safety of frontline communities across the Commonwealth.
