Utah in Top Ten in Nation for New Clean Energy Jobs

by Lisa Christensen

July 1, 2015

Over the first three months of 2015, 300 clean energy jobs were announced in Utah—enough to put the state in the top 10 for new clean energy jobs in the nation.

According to a report from Clean Energy Works for Us, Utah had the eighth most clean energy jobs announced in the first quarter of 2015. Georgia took the top of the list with 2,870 announced jobs, with California and Texas claiming the second and third slots with 1,885 and 1,612 announced jobs, respectively.

Also ahead of Utah was New Mexico, with 700 announced jobs; Michigan, with 616 announced jobs; Colorado, with 400 announced jobs; and Virginia, with 325 announced jobs. Maryland, with 240 announced jobs, and Indiana, with 224 announced jobs, rounded out the top 10. Nationwide, 6,660 clean energy jobs were announced nationwide in 19 projects, according to the report, which is about the same as fourth quarter 2014 but double first quarter 2014.

The bulk of the jobs were in solar energy, which has seen a spike in solar projects fueled by decreasing material costs and more favorable government policies.
