    White House Policy Flattens Solar Job Growth

    Solar Jobs Down 3 Percent Nationwide in 2018, But Some Key States See Job Growth; Uncertainty over tariffs, state policy impacts contribute to jobs reduction nationwide

    February 12, 2019 (The Solar Foundation)

    “The U.S. solar industry employs 242,343 workers as of 2018, a decline of nearly 8,000 jobs (3.2 percent) compared to 2017, according to the National Solar Jobs Census 2018…This marks the second year in a row that solar jobs have declined after seven years of steady growth…[S]olar jobs increased in 29 states in 2018, including in many states with emerging solar markets…States with the highest employment gains include Florida, Illinois, Texas, and New York State. Other states that saw job growth include Ohio, Washington State, Pennsylvania, Minnesota, Virginia, and Tennessee…Overall, solar employment has grown 159 percent since the first Census was released in 2010, adding nearly 150,000 well-paying jobs across all 50 states…

    …[T]he jobs decline in 2018 reflects a slowdown in installed solar capacity…[Tariffs on solar panels and cells] led to reduced capacity growth and fewer jobs in the first three quarters of 2018…Approximately 155,000 solar jobs, or two-thirds of the total, are in the installation and project development sector. Of these, about 87,000 jobs (56 percent) are focused on the residential market segment. The non-residential segment includes 46,000 jobs (30 percent), including about 12,500 jobs in community solar. The utility-scale market comprises 22,000 jobs (14 percent)…” click here for more
