Solar is Proven Job Creation
It has many names; photovoltaic, solar energy, solar power, solar electricity, but today it means something more than the sun beating on shiny metal frames, it means JOBS. According to Sacramento Bee’s Fred Keeley, the clean energy industry is supplying the state [California] with more than 35,000 high-paying jobs.” And you may ask what is propelling this influx of solar demand in the golden state…net metering. This is the technical term for “spin your meter backwards” or what Keeley calls “roll-over minutes”. Net-metering is moving homeowners and businesses alike to invest in a renewables and in turn, creating jobs.
