Hawaii among top states for clean energy jobs


California, Texas, Hawaii, Maryland and Massachusetts were the top five states for growth in solar power-related job announcements in 2013, according to a nonpartisan business group.

This is the second full year Environmental Entrepreneurs has tracked clean energy and clean transportation job announcements.

“Our report makes it clear. When we invest in clean energy and clean transportation, we put people to work in every corner of the country,” said E2 Executive Director Judith Albert, in a statement.

During the past two years, E2 has tracked more than 500 announcements that bore the potential of creating more than 186,500 jobs. Its new report is available online.
