RI Clean Energy Jobs See 66 Percent Growth Since 2014/Renewable Now Network.com

Last week we ran national and world wide stats on the growth of jobs in the green economy.  Now we will focus on some individual state success.

Here RI is well on pace to meet their state's goals.  Why?  What is driving hiring?  Quite simply it is good investments, technology, efficiency and a clear change in our power sources.   Schools are more focused on this shift.  As are companies.  As is local government.  All of which promotes a change in consumer habits.

 RI put forward, over the last few years, good public policy on tax credits and incentives around clean energy.  Now they are enjoying the fruits of the policies. 


Governor Gina M. Raimondo announced last week that Rhode Island continues to show impressive job growth in the clean energy sector, as detailed in the 2017 Rhode Island Clean Energy Jobs Report released by the Rhode Island Office of Energy Resources and the Executive Office of Commerce. “In March, I set a state goal to reach 1,000 MW of clean energy and add 20,000 clean energy jobs by 2020,” said Governor Raimondo. “This latest Clean Energy Jobs Report demonstrates progress toward achieving that ambitious goal. Continued investment in clean energy alternatives not only provides significant energy and environmental benefits, but substantial economic growth opportunities for Rhode Island workers and businesses as well. It is a triple win for our environment, our economy and our future.”

Now more than 15,300 jobs strong, Rhode Island’s clean energy economy continues to grow. Since 2014, clean energy employment in the Ocean State has grown by an impressive 66 percent and 11 percent over just this past year.
“As we seek to integrate affordable, clean and reliable energy throughout our state, job growth naturally follows,” said State Energy Commissioner Carol Grant. “The Office of Energy Resources is also supporting clean energy legislation before the General Assembly this legislative session that will continue to advance the state’s clean energy economy, including a statewide solar electrical/building permit, the extension and expansion of the RI...
