Nevada Ranked No. 1 For Energy Job Growth
According to a recently released report from a national non-partisan business group, Environmental Entrepreneurs (E2), Nevada was ranked the number-one state for clean energy job growth last year. The Tesla Motors’ announcement of a 6,500-employee “Gigafactory” was the largest single announcement in any clean energy sector all year. Despite growth, E2 indicated that uncertainty over public policy along with the expiration of beneficial tax policies has been a hindrance to clean energy industries. The jobs report found that at least 55 percent of clean energy business leaders had said they would likely increase investment levels if federal clean energy tax incentives were extended.
