Solar employs more people per megawatt-hour of electricity than any other energy source

US solar industry employed 173,807 people, up 21.8 percent from a year before
That's 10 times faster than job growth in the overall US economy, which was just 2 percent over the same time period, according to the Bureau of Labor Statistics.
Solar jobs now outnumber coal mining jobs two-to-one and are quickly catching up to jobs in oil and gas extraction, as well.
