The renewable energy sector employs 549,911 Americans and has quickly become one of the nation’s leading drivers of job growth.
A Renewable America (ARA) Jobs Tour was launched in 2017 to ensure key decision makers and the public understand the significant economic benefits renewable energy provides communities from coast to coast. The ARA Jobs Tour helps connect wind and solar business leaders with policymakers across the U.S. to shine a light on the renewable sector’s positive impact on local economies, and the policies and market drivers that will allow America’s continued renewable energy growth.
The ARA Jobs Tour has traveled around the country spotlighting renewable job creation and other economic benefits of the growing U.S. solar and wind industries. Watch video highlights from the ARA Jobs Tour below.
