Employment rising with the sun

-A A +A

One thing that doesn’t rise as consistently as the sun is our employment rate. The solar energy industry could help to change that though, because like the sun each morning, jobs in the solar industry are on the rise.
The solar industry has added over 20,000 jobs since November 2012, a 19.9 percent increase, which is more than ten times the national employment growth rate of 1.9 percent. The best part about these jobs that are being created is that most of them are paid a living wage! Right now New Mexico is ranked 10th in the nation for solar jobs per capita.
The solar energy industry is not only good for the unemployment crisis so many of us New Mexicans are suffering through, but it is also a positive step to a healthier environment. We have an abundance of sun here in our Land of Enchantment, and our sunsets are something we are known for.
If we could harness more of this power from the sun, and reduce our independence on fossil fuels, then maybe we could be known as the leading state for solar energy as well! And to top it off, we would be creating much-needed jobs for New Mexicans.
