The Buckeye State still ranks high for clean job creation. According to a report by nonpartisan business group E2, nearly 113,000 are employed in Ohio’s clean energy sector, a 4.6% increase since last year.
These jobs fall into four categories: solar (8,108), wind (1,080), energy efficiency (81,676) and clean vehicles (16,646). The biggest jump was 16% growth in clean vehicle jobs spurred by growing consumer demand, expansion of charging infrastructure and falling battery prices.
There are over 3.4 million clean energy jobs in the U.S. Employers expect 6% job growth in 2019.
