Based on 2018 data, The Solar Foundation’s latest National Solar Jobs Census documents the second consecutive decline in solar jobs — a finding partly attributable to tariff and policy concerns, as well as a hangover from the project rush in 2015-2016 in anticipation of the expiration of a 30% federal investment tax credit. (That credit still exists today.) Overall, solar employment since 2010 has grown from just over 93,000 to more than 242,000 jobs in all 50 states. “With a backlog of utility-scale projects and new policy incentives in key states, the outlook for solar jobs is expected to improve in 2019,” says the Foundation, with a survey projecting that solar jobs will increase 7% in 2019.
