There’s a Job Boom on the Horizon, and the Name of the Game is Renewable Energy

What if we told you that there is an amazing, emerging market that not only has employment opportunities for you but is also saving the planet as it continues to expand? Meet the renewable energy sector. It is expanding every day and creating new jobs in your community. 

What is renewable energy?

Renewable energy is a clean source of energy. That simple. We all know that getting power from wind and the sun is cleaner than coal. But there’s a lot of work that needs to happen for the entire country to get there: that’s where you come in.

There are already a bunch of new jobs in renewable energy…you should have one of them

A recent report found that almost 3.3 million Americans are already working in clean energy! The field grew by about 3.6% in 2018 and is predicted to have grown by 6% in 2019. These numbers are HUGE, which means if you got a job in this field, you could have it for years to come. But, you don’t have to take our word for it, E2 studies shows renewable energy as one of the fastest-growing industries in the US. Grow with a job that just keeps growing.

Here are the facts:

Jobs in clean energy have higher wages than the national average: we are talking about an 8%-19% increase in income. 

You don’t have to have a college degree to work in renewable energy: 45% of current workers only have high school diplomas. 

There are wind farms and manufacturing facilities every single state in the union: there are jobs for you there. 

Solar jobs increased in 29 states in 2018, specifically in Illinois there was a 20% increase: there are jobs for you there. 

Sustainable jobs, sustainable living

Many states are making it a goal to use 100% clean energy: there is a major push in the development of renewable energy in this country. This means one very important thing for you, particularly in Illinois: new, high wage jobs. Be a part of the movement. Look for opportunities in clean energy today!
