The Solar Foundation’s State Solar Jobs Census 2015 has lots of good news… except for Alabama: Alabama’s non-existent or even regressive solar policies have resulted in our “Sunny South” state ranking 50th in solar jobs per capita. (Indeed, as if to add insult to injury, a town called Alabama in New York state is expected to create more than three times the total number of solar jobs than the entire State of Alabama — and recently attracted an additional $10M investment from Korea.)

We love seeing solar panels in Alabama and are looking for your solar installations. Please post on Instagram, Facebook, Twitter, etc. and tag with #AlabamaSolar. And, be sure to email below to send us more information about them.

A recent report from The Solar Foundation found that Alabama ranks 42nd in state-specific numbers related to solar jobs in the state. With only 420 jobs related to solar, there is a lot of room for growth. This is especially true when you see that Tennessee has 2,800 jobs with 1,200 new last year and Georgia has 2,600 jobs, with 1,800 new last year. That means Alabama is set for a huge potential job growth with the right policies and economic development. Let's encourage state decision makers to support this dependable renewable energy!
