    Matt Egan, May 24, 2017 (CNNMoney via CentralIllinoisProud)

    “…Solar employment expanded last year 17 times faster than the total U.S. economy…Overall, more than 260,000 people work in the solar industry, up by 24 percent from 2015…[According to a new report, the] solar business has benefited from the falling cost of solar energy and generous federal tax credits that make it more affordable for businesses and homeowners to install solar panels…Awareness is also up as Americans concerned about climate change look for cleaner energy options…Most solar workers are in the installation business…Other leading jobs include manufacturing, project development, sales and research-and-development…Men have most of the jobs in solar, but that is starting to change, especially in the sales business. Women now hold 28 percent of solar jobs, up from 19 percent in 2013…” click here for more
