Protecting Florida for the Future

When It Comes to Clean Energy, What’s Wrong With Florida?

Here’s a question for you. Which state has created more jobs in the booming solar business: Massachusetts or Florida?

If you picked the Sunshine State, you’d be wrong, remarkably enough.

According to the first-of-its kind clean energy jobs survey for Florida that was just released by my group, only about 11,000 Floridians work in solar and other forms of renewable energy. That’s far fewer than many states, including much-smaller Massachusetts, where 13,000 residents work in solar and other renewable businesses.
