DOE Report: Solar Creates More US Electricity Jobs Than Oil, Gas, Coal, Nuclear Combined 7.3.2017 Truthout - All Articles
Washington DC—The US Department of Energy (DOE) issued its second annual US Energy and Employment Report (USEER)  in January of 2017, and the numbers didn't bode well for the fossil fuels industry.

Wind power came in third in DOE's analysis, behind solar and fossil fuels, but ranks second as a standalone when the fossil fuels are broken down individually by technology. The analysis was conducted by BW Research using data compiled from the "Bureau of Labor Statistics Quarterly Census of Employment and Wages (QCEW, Quarter 1), together with a detailed supplemental survey of business establishments across the United States." BW Research Partnership is a "full-service applied research firm" that carries out economic and workforce data-gathering throughout the country."
