Clean Jobs Pennsylvania 2017

The Clean Jobs Pennsylvania 2017 report is part of E2’s and KEEA’s ongoing effort to better understand the employment impacts of energy efficiency and renewable energy in the state and identify which policies would support additional job creation. Analysis of the size and scope of Pennsylvania’s clean energy economy shows nearly 70,000 Pennsylvanians work in the state’s clean energy sector. That’s a nearly 6 percent increase over the previous year—and it’s twice as many jobs as exist in the state’s fossil fuel industry.

Clean Jobs Pennsylvania 2017 is the latest evidence that the clean energy sector offers a robust path to grow the state’s economy and to unify the state’s political differences. Read the full report.
