Renewable energy is a topic of major concern globally today, especially in light of climate change policies and the knowledge of human impact on our environment. One of the most important things to know about renewable energy is the rate of jobs it is creating.

In the US alone, it is now out-pacing fossil fuel jobs by 25%, and data shows the main reason is due to the increase in solar installation jobs. It is clear where the future of energy lies, and its impact goes far beyond taking care of the planet and job growth. In parts of the world, renewable energy jobs have become an opportunity for financial gain as well as female empowerment and poverty eradication, making it a win-win all around.
