Which created more jobs in the US in 2016? Natural gas, wind, coal, nuclear or solar?

Posted on: May 11th, 2017 by rgadmin

According to the Department of Energy report published in January, in 2016, 1.9 million Americans were employed in power generation or mining of fuel.

More than 373,000 Americans worked in solar.

However, those solar jobs, like all power generation, is not distributed uniformly across the United States.

That is why Federal and State energy policy matters. States that support wind (Midwest and Great Plains) grew, states that supported solar (West and Northeast) saw employment grow and states that supported coal (Wyoming and West Virginia) saw more unemployment.

So what power generation do you support?
