Clean Energy Jobs, Production in Charlotte

Posted: Oct. 15th, 2012  |  By Michael Pearse

Though green energy laws being implemented in Charlotte might be viewed unfavorable by energy-producing companies, they are bringing jobs, revenue and hopefully a new breath of fresh air (literally and figuratively) to the city. 

Full-time jobs in North Carolina’s clean-energy sector grew 3 percent in the past year to more than 15,200, the N.C. Sustainability Energy Association said Thursday, but companies fret about unpredictable public policies.

The association released its annual jobs census on the second day of its Making Energy Work conference in Charlotte. The survey said the 1,100 energy-efficiency or renewable energy companies working in the state generated at least $3.7 billion in N.C. revenues.
