The State of Clean Jobs in NY
A trained workforce is critical in the transition to a clean energy economy. Before COVID-19, clean energy jobs were growing at a faster rate than any other sector in New York, as the prices of clean technology decreased and the state made clear policy shifts towards renewable sources of energy. The state also committed more than $100 million through 2025 to clean energy workforce development. According to the NYSERDA Clean Energy Industry Report from 2020 (see fact sheet here), New York is home to 148,000 clean energy jobs, which is down from 165,000 clean energy jobs before the pandemic, however the report shows clean energy industries are climbing back to where they were, with 5,000 jobs recovered since the May 2020 economy re-opening. Almost 80% of these jobs belong to the energy efficiency field, which pays higher 7-9.5% than other in-state HVAC or construction jobs.
New Yorkers for Clean Power is excited to build on New York’s clean job pathway with our Clean Power Fellowship! Fellows work to connect individuals to opportunities in energy efficiency and renewable energy as well as expand our outreach and resources on clean energy jobs.
NYCP Fellow Desirée Lyle jumpstarted her green career through the Citizens for Local Power Internship Program.
