      Solar Foundation Paper Finds Energy Storage a Promising Source of Solar Job Growth

      Energy storage will create tens of thousands of new, high-quality solar jobs within the next five years. Specifically, the paper estimates there will be approximately 27,000 solar and storage related deployment jobs in 2021. This includes approximately 9,000 storage installation jobs tied to solar, and 18,000 solar installation jobs that would not occur absent the availability of storage. “In the next few years, storage will be hitting the mainstream in a big way,” said Andrea Luecke, President and Executive Director at The Solar Foundation.
