#Solar Jobs In US Grew 20 Percent Last Year: via @SFGate

Job growth in 2013 stayed sluggish for much of the American economy. But for solar companies, it was a banner year. Employment in the U.S. solar industry jumped 20 percent in 2013 to hit 142,698, according to an annual survey released Monday . The number of solar jobs across the country has grown 53 percent since 2010. Last year, the industry added 56 U.S. jobs per day, on average. “That growth is putting people back to work and helping local economies,” said Andrea Luecke, executive director of the Solar Foundation . Her research and advocacy group has issued its National Solar Jobs Census every year since 2010.
