If there is one person that is super happy to hear the National Solar Jobs Census report was released, it is this guy!
Al Gore took to his blog and could not hide his excitement for what the new report's numbers are.
Here's what he wrote:
“On November 14th, 2012, The Solar Foundation released its third annual National Solar Jobs Census report, which found that the U.S. solar industry currently employs 119,016 Americans. This figure represents the addition of 13,872 new solar workers and a 13.2 percent employment growth rate over the past 12 months. According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics, employment in the overall economy grew at a rate of 2.3 percent during the same period, signifying that 1 in 230 jobs created nationally over the last year were created in the solar industry.”
Another interesting bit of information from former Vice President Al Gore.
What would we do without this guy?!?!
