Wind and Solar Energy to Create Thousands of Jobs for Americans

The US Bureau of Labor Statistics reports that there will be many more jobs related to wind and solar energy in the next ten years. These industries will provide jobs for thousands of Americans, especially since there are surging gas prices all over the US.

The government agency said wind turbine specialists and solar photovoltaic system installers would be the most in-demand.

Wind power jobs are expected to grow by 4.7% between 2020 and 2030, while solar power jobs are expected to increase by 6.1% over the same period.

According to Futurism, the data was last updated at the end of 2021, but it is more relevant than ever. US gas prices, especially California gas prices, hit record highs this month, and President Biden is hoping for a Green New Deal to tackle fossil fuel dependency.
