Report: Jobs Could Grow with Energy Efficiency

The Pittsburgh Post-Gazette reports that “a coalition of environmentalist groups and trade unions expressed optimism Wednesday that even a coal-dependent region like Pittsburgh could significantly grow jobs while transitioning away from fossil fuels and toward investments in renewable energy and energy efficiency.”  

“But the report highlighted a mismatch between when those jobs will be created and for how long they will last.”  

“Jobs created by the renewable sector will more likely be more temporary, more nonunion and lower paying than those currently in the fossil fuel industry, said Mick Power, membership and campaign coordinator for the U.S. Climate Action Network and author of the report.”
