On March 20, 2019, the Solar Foundation released an updated map on the number of solar jobs in every state, metropolitan area, county, and congressional district, revealing how solar energy is supporting local economies nationwide. The interactive map can be viewed at SolarStates.org.
The solar jobs map includes previously unreleased data on solar jobs by metropolitan statistical area (MSA), county, and federal and state congressional district, along with detailed statistics on the solar workforce in each state. The Solar Foundation also released detailed fact sheets on all 50 states, the District of Columbia, and Puerto Rico.
The solar jobs map includes four years of data from 2015 through 2018 to show year-over-year trends in local solar job growth. In addition to the jobs numbers, it includes data on solar jobs by industry sector for each state; solar workforce demographics by state; important solar policies that states have adopted; and much more.
