The district-level Census found that New York’s solar industry employed 7,284 New Yorkers in 2014 and added nearly 2,100 solar jobs over the previous year. New York’s 40% solar industry employment growth allowed it to move to 4th in rankings of highest number of solar jobs by state. Solar employment in New York grew nearly 40 times faster than the state’s employment growth rate of 1.1 percent during the same period.
