The latest study shows the growth of clean-technology industry sprouting throughout the States, while Californian natives hold one-fourth of the total solar energy jobs in the U.S.

As indicated by the National Solar Jobs Census 2011, the industry witnessed 6.8% job growth in a year. The review suggests the job rate will grow by 24 percent for generation of 24, 000 fresh jobs in the next year. The numbers shows Colorado dominated the second position and has 6,186 solar jobs. While at national level, overall solar energy jobs including manufacturing, residential, and commercial rose 6.8 percent in the twelve month period.

The National Solar Jobs Census 2011 data for a year period ended August, maintained that out of 100,237 solar energy jobs in 50 states, California accounted for 25,575 jobs during the period.

Growing solar-energy industry:- The study also said California is second to none in electricity generation from both photovoltaic solar panels and concentrated solar power systems mentioned study. California industry and policymakers have a tremendous opportunity to build on this solid foundation and make solar a centerpiece of the state’s energy policy.

The census is released Monday by a Washington based research and education organization, the Solar Foundation. The National Solar Jobs Census 2011 data for a year period ended August, maintained that out of 100,237 solar energy jobs in 50 states, California accounted for 25,575 jobs during the period.

David Hochschild, vice president of Fremont-based Solaria Corp., said the technology is on the verge of playing a dominant role in the conventional energy market.

Growth despite recent closure:- Besides the current generation of green jobs in California, high-meteoric growth is expected for the industry in comparison to the overall U.S. economy said Michelle Kinman a clean energy advocate for Environment California. “California industry and policymakers have a tremendous opportunity to build on this solid foundation and make solar a centerpiece of the state’s energy policy.” Kinman added.

Industry advocate opined that a recent political scam leading to insolvency of the Northern California solar panel manufacturer Solyndra should not hinder the growth of solar industry. The Fremont, Calif., company was closedown following a $535-million federal loan assurance. The study also said California is second to none in electricity generation from both photovoltaic solar panels and concentrated solar power systems mentioned study. California industry and policymakers have a tremendous opportunity to build on this solid foundation and make solar a centerpiece of the state’s energy policy.

Arno Harris, chief executive of Recurrent Energy, a San Francisco solar developer said in this regard, “We have to look beyond the failure of one company and see the tremendous success that’s occurring here.” This study shows the growth of clean-technology industry sprouting throughout the States, while Californian natives hold one-fourth of the total solar energy jobs in the U.S.
