Green Jobs Now

Home to four of the 10 largest U.S. cities, Texas is committed to renewables including solar and wind, and circular energy production and technology. Research indicates there are well over 4 million workers in Texas who could move into green jobs – some with fairly little upskilling. Stakeholders are looking at the projected job growth as a way to provide economic opportunity to populations that have, historically, been underrepresented.
Employment demand for green jobs in Texas will increase an estimated 11.7% in the next 5 years, according to a new WorkingNation-Lightcast report, far above the national average of 5.5%
