With many states beginning to adopt new green energy projects, and other states needing people maintain the current projects, many green energy jobs are being created to help with the demand. Over the next 20 years, renewable energy projects are slated to add up to 209,000 direct jobs in 6 total states, while other indirect jobs could be created as well. As more states begin to start green energy projects, more jobs would be created. In a time where unemployment is still high, we need to create as many jobs as possible. As people begin to look for renewable energy sources, more opportunities for jobs will bloom.
If we can lower our carbon footprint, while boosting the economy, that would be a win win situation for everyone and would help maintain a sustainable future for everyone.
