WASHINGTON, D.C. – Following news that American companies created more than 110,000 clean energy jobs in 2012, according to a report released by Environmental Entrepreneurs, Green For All CEO Phaedra Ellis-Lamkins issued the following response:
"Jobs in clean energy are real and growing. Environmental Entrepreneurs’ report shows that more states like North Carolina and Ohio, with strong communities of color, are recognizing the return on investment in American workers.
A robust, serious commitment to doubling our clean energy investments in light rail and other clean energy technologies will grow America's economy and create good, healthy, family-supporting jobs for folks who’ve traditionally been left behind."
