Benefits of Renewables
Renewable energy is a clean, homegrown and affordable form of energy that pumps billions of dollars into our economy every year, particularly into rural areas. Renewables can act as a drought-resistant cash crop for farmers and ranchers to rely on to make a living and keep their land in the family.
Expansion of renewable, non-combustion energy resources helps protect people from air pollutants and contributes to significant savings in public health costs.
The outlook for prospective renewable energy jobs is excellent, offering higher than average wages and providing many career and educational opportunities. The Bureau of Labor projects that solar PV installers and wind turbine service technicians will be the two fastest-growing jobs in the United States until 2026, growing much faster than the average for all occupations.
The growth in clean energy is the result of a constant search to reduce costs, an increased demand by consumers for clean energy and constantly evolving, efficient technologies, as well as up-to-date policies and opportunities for investment.
