Statement from Renewable Energy Vermont regarding Vermont’s Ranking as First in the Nation for Solar Jobs Per Capita:
“Today’s number one ranking in solar jobs per capita is a huge achievement for Vermont. It demonstrates the strength, vitality and importance of this growing sector of Vermont’s economy. This success would not be possible without the Renewable Energy Vermont (REV) member companies creating new jobs; Vermont’s policy makers commitment to strong renewable energy regulations; and the thousands of Vermonters who are going solar.
“Vermont is leading the way and making progress towards our goal of 90% renewable energy by 2050,” said REV chair Thomas Hughes. “Today’s recognition is an important cause for celebration as we transition towards a cleaner, safer, more secure and independent energy future.”
