Solar Jobs Boom Makes Keystone XL Pipeline Look Like A Tinker Toy

solar jobs growthCheck out the Solar Foundation’s latest solar jobs report for the US, and you’ll see why the folks over there are looking forward to another great year in 2015. The new state-by-state solar Jobs Census was just released one minute ago, and aside from the interesting factoid that the solar industry created 1 in 78 new jobs last year, it highlights the emergence of strong solar markets in so-called “red” states where lawmakers are not particularly known for being solar-friendly.

As for the Keystone XL pipeline, for now, let’s just say that the project would create about 3,900 temporary construction jobs and something on the order of 42,000 other temporary jobs all along the supply chain.

That sounds pretty impressive, but how does the solar industry stack up?
